Well, you have to have at least 3 years experience to get your CPSM. So it can't be completly entry level.
With 3 years experience I would guess maybe 50-60k a year.
Bump that up to 10 years experience and I would say 100k.

an entry level Buyer job how much is the average salary
I hire entry level buyers frequently and have not seen one at entry level with CPSM credentials. I do not think the CPSM certification would influence the amount of salary that would be offered to an entry level buyer because they are, after all, entry level. If the knowledge gained in certification is properly applied on the job the CPSM holder should advance quickly based on their contribution to the organization... so to your question - the average salary for an entry level buyer is about $42,000 - Oil & Gas Sector.

I became unemployed in 2008, I have looked high and low and up to now I have not been able to secure anything, even an administrative assistant's role.
With a degree in business administration, 2 years in the US as a buyer with a prestigious University, 4 years in Kosovo as a buyer with the United Nations, 10 years as a Buyer in my native Kenya, my last Interview was with a major player in the power sector , in which I discovered I was one of ten applicants.
I have been surviving by doing temporary jobs as a Nurse Aide in nursing homes and as a Home Health Aide.
I have a diploma from C.I.P.S , I recently managed to get enough money to buy the subscription from ISM but I am unable to raise money for the CPSM. I will do anything , if there is anyone out there looking for someone who is ready,willing and available to give it their all , PLEASE , PLEASE contact me.
My Phone number is 856-470-8411, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org , I live in South Jersey and will relocate to any place on earth to find a job.

IMHO, a lot of this information can be researched from two primary sources: ISM's yearly salary survey, and the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics, Wage Information.
two great places to start.
