sales are the most important area of the business, there is no use of developing softwares if there are no sales for that item.

This is really hard to answer as there are so many dependencies (company, stage of company, industry, yrs of exp, yrs of exp at what companies, etc.)

In very broad strokes, though, one can probably expect to receive lower base compensation, but a higher overall OTE (On Target Earnings) after commissions (assuming one hits full OTE).

As with most things in life: higher risk = higher reward.
