What is a Product Agreement?
Buying and selling are the basis of business, but in the rush to complete a transaction, it's sometimes easy to skip the details. Writing up a solid Product Agreement may actually save you money down the road. It's smart to get a written quote up front. In a Product Agreement, you can describe the items in detail and include quality standards that the seller must meet. You can specify when and where your items will be delivered. What happens if the goods don't arrive, or come late? Or what if you don't get paid for the products? Or if the price suddenly changes? You might not realize you don't have anything beyond a verbal agreement until it's too late. Customers might be counting on you having products on a certain date. You might have even accepted backorders. Or maybe you run a small business and getting paid on time means your mortgage gets paid. A Product Agreement can help keep you in the clear.
When to use a Product Agreement:
- You're selling goods to another business.
- You're buying products from another business.
- You manage a company where goods are sold or bought.
