Why We Do Not Support Sales Commissions


Why We Do Not Support Sales Commissions


There has been a lot of talk in the media recently about hearing care providers receiving sales commissions/incentives for recommending particular hearing aid brands or models.  Unfortunately this practice is very common in the major retail hearing chains including vertically integrated (manufacturer-owned) chains.

At Sounds of Life we do not support the practice of hearing aid sales commissions, nor manufacturer incentives as we believe this is contrary to providing the best objective clinical care to our clients.
