Does anyone earn a commission from the sales your PPC ads generate?

If so, how much?

I'm the sole PPC guy for a retailer that is actually the largest in our niche. I also figure my salary needs about 25% tacked on to be where I should for what I bring in, and where I live (SF bay area).

As such, I don't have a huge amount of motivation for this holiday season, and proposed setting some goals with an incentive tied to them.

Now they've asked what I want, but I don't know. I am not having much luck finding what other people are doing, so I wanted to ask anyone reading this.

Does anyone earn a commission on the sales their ads bring in? Does anyone have some sort of a bonus system, where you get a said amount when you achieve a certain sales level?

Any information that can give me an idea what what the norm might be would be amazing!

I run a few PPC campaigns for site owners... I get paid a set percentage of profits for reaching certain ROI hurdles. It encompases everything that matters to the owners and if I do well I get paid well.

If I acheive a 10% ROI maybe I get 20% of profit on my sales generated, etc...

Its all negotiating, I like to have mine tied to performance because it drives me to do my best... and this business is about referrals.
