What Is a Sales Contract?

A Sales Contract is a contract between a seller and a buyer for the sale of goods, services, or both. It lays out the terms of a transaction for goods or services, identifying the goods sold, listing delivery instructions, the inspection period, any warranties, and the details of payment.

Alternate Name:

  • Sales Agreement.

These agreements can also be differentiated depending on the method of payment. A simple Sales Contract is used when a buyer pays the full price of the product immediately. An Installment Sales Contract is used in cases where a buyer purchases an item on an installment basis.
