Selling expenses are part of the operating expenses (along with administrative expenses). Selling expenses include sales commissions, advertising, promotional materials distributed, rent of the sales showroom, rent of the sales offices, salaries and fringe benefits of sales personnel, utilities and telephone usage in the sales department, etc.
The expenses that an organization incurs not directly tied to a specific function such as manufacturing/production or sales. These expenses are related to the organization as a whole as opposed to an individual department; also referred to as "administrative cost."
