A Sales Agreement, also known as a Sales Contract or Sales of Goods Contract, is used to specify the terms of a transaction between two parties.
What can I use a Sales Agreement for?
You can use a Sales Agreement for purchasing/selling:
Goods: a physical item or possession (e.g. computer, air conditioner, car, exercise equipment, animals, etc.)
Services: performing duties in exchange for compensation (e.g. installing a dishwasher). If services are the only thing being provided, it is recommended you use LawDepot's Service Agreement.
Goods and Services: the purchase of both a physical item as well as supplying aid (e.g. a computer and installing the computer)
Real Estate: property, buildings, or land. If it is for the sale of a residential property, it is recommended you use LawDepot's Real Estate Purchase Agreement.
When creating your Sales Agreement, clearly describe the item and/or service. This should include a physical description and the quantity being sold.
Who are the parties in a Sales Agreement?
Buyer: the individual or corporation purchasing a good or service from a seller
Seller: the individual or corporation selling a good or service
How do I determine the payment details in this Sales Agreement?
In a service contract, you will need to determine a payment plan. Here are the decisions you need to make:
Payment Type is how the buyer intends to pay the seller. Payment can come in the form of:
Email transfer, etc.
The seller should provide a receipt to the buyer for transactions involving cash.
Deposit is a specified amount of money that a buyer gives to a seller as security that they will follow through on the transaction. If the buyer chooses to purchase, the deposit will go towards the purchase price. The deposit can be refundable or nonrefundable, meaning that either the deposit is returned to the buyer or kept by the seller if the deal does not go through.
It is important to include payment due dates for both the payment itself as well as the deposit in the Sales Agreement, if applicable, to make the transaction details clear.
Will the goods be delivered?
You may wish to include terms regarding where the goods will be delivered. This can be at the buyer's address, the seller's address, or at another specified location. The seller can be compensated after the buyer has received the goods, the seller has shipped them, or a Bill of Sale has been created.
What's the difference between a Sales Agreement and a Bill of Sale?
While a Sales Agreement and Bill of Sale have similar purposes, a Sales Agreement offers a more detailed payment plan and provides warranties on the item. It also allows both parties more flexibility prior to completing the agreement by arranging terms to secure goods before they are purchased.
A Bill of Sale is a form evidencing that an item's ownership has been transferred from one party to another. It can be used as part of a Sales Agreement to prove that the goods officially changed hands.
What does liability, warranties, and "as is" mean in a Sales Agreement?
Liability addresses the goods' risk of loss or damage. Liability can be transferred to the buyer once:
The buyer has ownership through a Bill of Sale.
The buyer receives the goods.
The seller ships the goods.
Warranty refers to the guarantee that a seller makes about the quality and condition of goods.
Here are some of the promises a buyer can make regarding an item:
They own it (e.g. the seller purchased the car from a dealership).
The item has no claims or loans against it (e.g. there are no outstanding liens on a vehicle).
The goods are fit for use (e.g. the motorcycle is fit for driving).
The item does not infringe on patents or trademarks (e.g. the seller's invention is not a replica of someone else's patented design).
When a seller offers no warranties, they are selling the item "as is", which means they do not guarantee the quality of the goods to the buyer, and the buyer agrees. This condition only works if the seller has not purposely hidden any flaws.

Any accident, contamination, foreign object damage, abuse, neglect or negligence after delivery to Buyer; or

Except as otherwise specifically agreed in writing by Buyer and Seller, any dispute relating to an Order placed by a Buyer incorporated in the United States which is not resolved by the parties shall be adjudicated by any court of competent jurisdiction. For Orders placed by a Buyer incorporated outside the United States, the parties shall resort to binding arbitration under mutually agreed procedures.
This Agreement shall be interpreted in accordance with the laws of the jurisdiction in which the Seller’s facility accepting the Order hereunder is located, exclusive of any choice of law provisions. The Seller and Buyer expressly agree to exclude from this Agreement the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods, 1980, and any successor thereto.
PandaTip: Feel free to change the State of governing law to a specific State in lieu of the above language.
Unless otherwise agreed, Buyer shall be responsible for compliance with the export control laws and regulations of the U.S. Government, and when required by such laws and regulations shall obtain validated export and re-export licenses required for goods, services and technical data delivered under this Order. Seller shall not be liable to Buyer for any failure to provide goods, services or technical data as a result of any following U.S. Government actions: (1) refusal to grant export or re-export license; (2) cancellation of export or re-export license; or (3) any subsequent interpretation of U.S. export laws and regulations, after the date of this order, that limits or has a material adverse effect on the cost of Seller’s performance on this Order.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.

In no event shall Seller be liable for special, incidental or consequential damages. Except as herein expressly provided to the contrary, the provisions of this Order are for the benefit of the parties to the Order and not for the benefit of any other person.
NONDISCLOSURE AND NON-USE OF SELLERS INFORMATION.
Buyer agrees that it will not use Seller’s data for the manufacture or procurement of products which are the subject of this Order or any similar products, or cause said products to be manufactured by or procured from any other source, or reproduce said data and information or otherwise appropriate them without the written authorization of the Seller. Buyer agrees that it will not disclose or make available to any third party any of Seller’s data or other information pertaining to this Order which is proprietary to Seller without obtaining Seller’s prior written consent.
Except insofar as an Order calls for products pursuant to Buyer’s designs, drawings or specifications, Seller agrees to pay the amount of any final judgment against Buyer resulting from a suit claiming that any commercial products manufactured or furnished hereunder, by reason of their manufacture, sale or use, infringes any United States patent which has issued at date of contract, and Buyer’s reasonable costs and expenses in defense of such suit if Seller does not undertake the defense thereof, provided Seller is promptly notified of the threat or commencement of such suit and is offered full and exclusive control to conduct the defense or settlement thereof.
Seller’s indemnity shall not apply where infringement would not have occurred from the normal use for which the products were designed. No responsibility is assumed for actual or alleged infringement of any foreign patent. Seller’s liability for damages hereunder is limited to those computed solely on the value of any products sold to Buyer. In no event shall Seller be liable for consequential damages or costs applicable thereto. In the event of any claim that a product furnished hereunder infringes any United States patent, Seller may at its option and expense (a) procure for Buyer the right to continue using the product, or (b) replace or modify the product so that it becomes non-infringing, or (c) grant Buyer a credit for such product, less a reasonable depreciation for use, damage, and obsolescence upon its return to Seller. Buyer agrees to pay all costs and expenses incurred by Seller in its defense and the amount of any judgment against Seller, in any suit or proceeding against Seller based upon a claim of infringement, resulting solely from the Buyer combining any product furnished hereunder with any item not manufactured or furnished by Seller or from the sale or use of any such combination by Buyer. Seller shall also indemnify Buyer’s Buyers and agents for such infringement, if and to the extent that Buyer has agreed so to indemnify them, but to no greater extent than Seller has indemnified Buyer herein and under the same conditions as set forth herein. In the event any product to be furnished under this Order is to be made in accordance with drawings, samples or manufacturing specifications designated by Buyer and is not the design of Seller, Buyer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Seller harmless to the same extent and subject to the same requirements as set forth in Seller’s obligation to Buyer as above. The above is in lieu of any other indemnity or warranty, express or implied by Seller, with respect to intellectual property (patents, trade secret, mask works, trademarks, copyrights, or the like).

In the event that any software or software documentation is provided to Buyer by Seller in any form whatsoever under an Order and no software license agreement governing this sale has been signed between Buyer and Seller, Buyer agrees to accept the terms and conditions stated below effective the date of the first delivery hereunder:
Subject to the terms and conditions herein, the Seller grants to Buyer a nonexclusive, nontransferable license to use the software or software documentation provided herein: (i) in the course of the normal operation in or with Seller products which are installed, or are intended to be installed, on aircraft, (ii) in the analysis or the formatting of reports using data from such Seller products or, (iii) on Seller or non-Seller products that are used to test, maintain, download, or process information compiled by Seller products.
Making copies of software or documentation except for one copy for archive purposes is prohibited unless specifically authorized by Seller in writing. Should such copying be authorized, Buyer will reproduce and include all Seller proprietary and copyright notices and other legends in the same manner that Seller provides such notices and legends, both in and on every copy of licensed software and documentation and in any form.
The software license and rights granted by Seller to Buyer hereunder are personal to Buyer. The licensed software and documentation may not be sub-licensed, transferred, or loaned to any other party without Seller’s prior express written consent, except that Buyer may transfer the licensed software and documentation in conjunction with the resale of any flight equipment or Seller supplied test equipment in which the licensed software and documentation is installed or with which it is used. Such permission to transfer is contingent upon the resale or transfer of Buyer’s agreement to use and protect the confidentiality of the licensed software and documentation under the same or similar terms as those set forth in this software license. Buyer will, however, notify Seller in writing of the transfer of the licensed software and documentation.
Buyer agrees to utilize all licensed software and documentation only as authorized herein. Buyer may not either itself or with the assistance of others, make modifications to the licensed software and documentation, including, but not limited to, translating, decompiling, disassembling or reverse assembling, reverse engineering, creating derivative or merged works, or performing any other operation on licensed software and documentation to recover any other operation on licensed software and documentation to recover any portion of the program listing, object code or source code or any information contained therein.
Buyer agrees to accept and retain licensed software and documentation in confidence. Buyer agrees to take appropriate action by instruction, agreement or otherwise with Buyer’s employees, or agents or other persons who are permitted access to licensed software and documentation as follows to inform said employees, agents or other persons who may come into contact with it of the confidential nature of licensed software and documentation; and to satisfy its obligations under this software license with respect to use, copying, and protection and security of licensed software and documentation.
This software license is effective as of the date of first delivery hereunder and shall continue until terminated by Buyer for any reason whatsoever upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to Seller, provided Buyer ceases using and either returns or destroys Seller software and documentation; or by Seller, if Buyer does not comply with any of the terms and conditions of this software license and Buyer fails to remedy such failure within thirty (30) days after having received notice from Seller of such failure.
Notwithstanding the warranties provided elsewhere herein, Buyer acknowledges that licensed software and documentation may be aircraft or sensor specific and, as such, may require reasonable adjustment or refinement to suit Buyer’s specific requirements. Buyer shall provide reasonable aid to Seller in accomplishing such adjustments and refinements. Such reasonable adjustments or refinements shall commence on the date of delivery and be provided by Seller to Buyer for a period not to exceed ninety (90) days unless otherwise provided for in writing.
Buyer agrees that it will not use the license software and documentation in the performance of a contract, or subcontract, with any Government in a manner so as to affect Seller rights to licensed software and documentation. If Buyer desires to use the licensed software or documentation in the performance of a contract or subcontract with a Government, prior to such use, Buyer shall consult with Seller as to the procedures and use of restrictive markings required to protect the ownership interest of Seller.
This license and sale is subject to the laws and regulations, and other administrative acts, now or hereinafter in effect, of the United States and other governments and their departments and agencies relative to the exportation and/or re-exportation of licensed software and documentation. Buyer acknowledges that it will be responsible for compliance as necessary with such laws, regulations and administrative acts.
Seller agrees to use reasonable efforts to secure any licenses or permits as may now or hereafter be required by the U.S. Government in connection with the performance of Seller obligations under this Order, but this will not be deemed to require any performance on the part of Seller which cannot lawfully be done pursuant to the laws, regulations and acts referred to above.
SPECIAL TOOLING AND DATA.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, all material, software, data processes, equipment, facilities and special tooling, which term includes but is not limited to jigs, dies, fixtures, molds, patterns, special taps, special gages, special test equipment, other special equipment and manufacturing aids and replacements thereof, used in the manufacture of products covered by an Order shall be and remain the property of Seller. Seller retains all rights, title and interest in drawings, engineering instructions, specifications, and all other written data, if any, furnished with the products.
The prices quoted herein do not include sums necessary to cover any taxes or duties including but not limited to Federal, State, Municipal excise, sales or use taxes or import duties upon the production, sales, distribution, or delivery of goods or furnishing of services hereunder. Any taxes or duties that are due and owing hereunder shall be paid by the Buyer. Accordingly, Seller reserves the right to revise its price after the execution of this Order between the parties to include any and all taxes or duties that may become due hereunder and Seller may invoice Buyer for said additional amount. This clause shall survive the acceptance and complete performance of this Order by the parties herein.
Neither party shall assign this Order or any portion thereof without the advance, written consent of the other party, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. The non-assigning party shall not have any obligation to an assignee of the assigning party unless such consent is obtained.
Failure by Seller to assert all or any of its rights upon any breach of this Order shall not be deemed a waiver of such rights either with respect to such breach or any subsequent breach, nor shall any waiver be implied from the acceptance of any payment or service. No waiver of any right shall extend to or affect any other right Seller may possess, nor shall such waiver extend to any subsequent similar or dissimilar breach.
If any provision of these Conditions of Sale is determined to be illegal, invalid, or unenforceable, for any reason, then such provision shall be deemed stricken for purpose of the dispute in question, and all other provisions shall remain in full force and effect.
In Witness Whereof, this Agreement is duly executed by the duly authorized representatives of the parties as set forth below:
