Commission & Incentives​

UNIT Commission Structures

All units receive a base commission of 32%. The Prize Option includes prizes for Scouts based on the dollar value of popcorn each Scout sells: the more popcorn sold, the higher the value of prize they can choose. Additional prizes and incentives are available to individual Scouts who reach certain sales goals. All prizes will delivered directly to Unit kernel's homes.
