As James pointed out, a TERRIBLY low compensation situation creates COMPLICATIONS. Which is the opposite of making it easy for a buyer to purchase a home.
Two steps are added to the process. I advise my buyer I will submit their purchase offer with the provision the seller compensates me adequately. After all, they may be testing the water and trolling for a naive agent and gullible buyer. Failing to do so my buyer must make up the difference. This WILL put the seller in a difficult situation and may prove to be a more costly outcome than the result had they heeded their agents advise. I know sellers are in a very difficult situation, but it is very important for listing agents to communicate that a home not sold save no money at all!
