Top 4 Benefits of Being an Independent Sales Agent


Becoming a Sales Agent in the Payment Processing Industry

Create your own schedule. Be your own boss.

Being an independent sales agent in the payments industry comes packed with four key perks that make it simple to become a leader in a dynamic industry - all while maintaining control over your schedule alongside a company that's dedicated to the growth and success of your career.

Check out the top four benefits we like most about being an independent sales agent:

1. Flexibility

Working in the payments industry as an independent agent means you’re able to have control over your career and schedule. Say goodbye to commuting to the office every day, and hello to working from your living room or local coffee shop. This flexibility makes it easier to achieve an optimal work-life balance.

2. Options

When it comes to having a career in sales, you’ve got options! There’s a wide selection of industries to choose from like, insurance, pharmaceutical, credit card processing sales, etc. Whichever option you choose, you have the potential to be extremely successful as you hone in on your sales skills, as they can be utilized in any sales role — even if you decide to switch industries.

3. Endless Income Opportunities

The possibilities of benefitting your bottom-line are limitless! It’s true, your income potential varies depending on how much you sell, but being an independent sales agent opens up your income potential in more ways than one. If you've got sales-centric characteristics like confidence, patience, persistence and an outgoing nature, plus if you listen and respond well, sales is the career for you! With that being said, it is important to note that having the right support from your company is extremely important too, as they can provide you with the tools and resources to help reach your goals.

4. Fun-Employed (Self-Employed with Support)

There’s nothing like being your own boss! Even though independent sales agents primarily work on their own, they generally have contracts with companies to sell their specific products or services. This arrangement gives you the best of both worlds:

  1. You can sit in the driver’s seat and make decisions about the job without having to consult someone else or deal with the stress of running your own business
  2. Some payments partners offer more support and guidance than others, so be sure to check your agent agreement closely to see if this professional relationship will work for you

Being an independent sales agent in the payments industry is a great career for those who want to work for themselves and enjoy having the option to work as often or as seldom as they want — and earn as much as they want or need.
