As you can see from the discussion on this link, other companies use the same approach as you do, while others pay vacation based upon the average earnings (salary -- no draw -- plus comission) for the previous quarter.  If you want to get a feel for the prevailing practice in your industry, I suggest a survey. Responses here may be only anecdotal and insufficient justification for a policy change.
