Hybrid is a base wage, plus commissions. Usually the commission rate will be much lower than strictly commissions. It is not uncommon for some sales jobs to start out this way, especially for a new vendor, as it gives the salesperson some income while establishing accounts and still giving them the motiviation of the commission. Most times it will transition to commission only after a specified period, say two months or so.

Edit: I would only pay hourly, salary or hybrid to an inside salesperson where you personally can account for their hours and production. Any outside sales would be commission only.
