sales commissions

I searched but didn't find anything. I am about to hire an Outside Sales Rep. in the US. He won't be an employee and I will be paying him 25% of sales. Two questions.

First, how do I enter this as an expense in Wave? What is best accounting practices? What expense does this fall under? etc.

Second, how do I actually pay him? Just send him a check or bank transfer? Is there any legal paperwork here? Is he considered a contractor and a 1099 issued?

BTW, this is the first time I ever hire someone to work for me other than a short, build me a website, type of work. I am a one man show with no knowledge of HR/legal/tax best practices.
