Ashley works at a nearby electronics store. She makes a commission of 7% on everything she sells. If she sells a computer for $329.00, how much money does Ashley make in commission?

I have searched the idiom in many dictionaries.. but i can't understand perfectly..
How should i understand the idiom in this context?

    I was surprised to find this is not a British usage. You want to look in dictionaries of American English for commission: for instance, Oxford, definition 3. – StoneyB on hiatus Jul 17 '15 at 14:35

Commission is the amount of money that she earns when she sells an item. In your case is 7% of the products's price.
