When you enter the commission to selling brokerage, be sure to include a dollar sign ($) or percentage sign (%) to indicate what the commission will be.  When the commission is noted only as, for instance, “1”, there is no indication whether the selling commission is $1 or 1% of the total commission.

You are reminded that the selling commission can be a percentage of the total commission, a dollar amount or a combination of percentage and dollar amount. You MAY NOT offer “zero” or “0” as the selling commission – according to RAHB’s Rules, “An offer of compensation of zero is not acceptable.” [Section 1, sub-section 1.03(b)(iii)]
