What do scholars have to say about a matter that a shopkeeper says to a person, these are goods to be sold up to a price of fifty rupees, if you sell for more than that will be your wages, but this person’s daily wages aren’t set, is this permissible or not?

                                In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

                                  As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

This situation is not permissible, it is necessary for the shopkeeper to first fix wages for the person selling the goods.

"قال فی التاتارخانیۃ:وفی الدلال والسمسار یجب اجر المثل،وما تواضعوا علیہ ان فی کل عشرۃ دنانیر کذا،فذاک حرام علیھم۔"  (الشامیۃ: 6/63)

"والخامس اجارۃ السمسار ،لا یجوز ذلک ،وکذلک لو قال:بع ھذاالثوب بعشرۃ دراھم فما زاد فھو ذلک ،وان فعل فلہ اجر المثل۔" ( النتف:348)

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
