If the company negotiates not only commissions, but also its own products, the accounting of these transactions should be held separately. The next advantage is the simple processing of returns.

Such investments are usually sewn, which means that the investment cannot be used or sold for other activities, except with a significant loss, after leaving this field of activity. Third, there are the risks associated with other activities in the same product market, to the extent that the contracting entity requires the agent to engage in such activities, not as an agent on behalf of the client, but for his or her own risk.
