Normally the seller pays the listing agency the commission and then that is split with the selling agency. That can change based on the contract the listing agency has with the seller and the contract the buyer may have with a buyers agent. If you signed a buyer's agent agreement you may still have to pay part of the commission to your agent. Ask you agent to explain buyers agency and what arrangement exists pertaining to this property.
All the best,
Commission that the agent representing you will be paid is agreed upon by you and the agent in the Buyer Representation Agreement. As several comments below have said a buyer's agent will typically get paid what ever the listing offers. This may be true, however it is a good idea to read through your Buyer Representation Agreement to see if the agent has included any additional fees and discuss what will occur in the event that a listing that you are interested in does not pay as much as the agreement stipulates.
They tell the buyer's agent up front what they will pay.
So in most cases that's already set in motion before you ever even see the house.
I think most buyer agents will not care if they sell you a house listed by their agency or another one. It's a great system we have here. We know up front as buyer's agents that we can show and sell a house listed by another agency and there is a system to get paid.
To me this works in your favor as you don't have to drive all over town yourself, calling different people, trying to set different appointments, meeting different agents, and then working with one that is trying to get the highest price for the seller. You leave all that to your agent and then they work to get the best price for you since they are your agent.

The normal practice is that the seller pays the listing broker a certain percentage of the sale. And then the listing broker decides how they want to split the commission with cooperating brokers.
I hope this helps.
