Also known as "referral income" or "referral fee".
Often, the finder's fee may simply be a gift from one party to another, as no legal obligation to pay a commission exists. For example, let's examine a real estate transaction. Let's say that a friend is selling a property and you discover a potential buyer. If the transaction goes through, your friend may give you a small percentage of the sale, as a reward for finding the purchaser.
