"recortaron la comisión del intermediario"


Explanation:
Middle man: intermediario
Cut out : recortar
"La comisión" or "el porcentaje de comisión" or "Los beneficios" or "el margen de beneficios"...but the first two make better partnership with "intermediario". Good luck cheerio :)

De cualquier punto de vista, no se elimina beneficios, sino gastos!
