In my deal there are no commissions after one year. That’s on the business. Meaning commission paid first 12 months of spend then it goes to house. But in a typical BD situation you won’t be managing the account. You are solely a hunter. So the goal is a constant stream of new revenue as opposed to getting commissions in residuals.

115k base with 5% commission for first 6 months. (my FB title is out of date, but I am VPBD in NYC for a small design shop). It was a big pay cut but I've never been happier in a job.

Less stress about maintaining a client relationship. Less internal and client side politics to deal with. I think of an account as a marriage whereas BD is more like dating...no permanence but exciting.
