Benefits of a sales agreement
A sales agreement (also known a sales contract and a sales of goods contract) lets both parties know what to expect during the sale of goods or services. It helps parties better understand the details of the agreement, while minimizing the chances of a dispute later on. Sales contracts are governed by state and federal contract laws. The laws covering the sale of goods often implicates a standard for professional conduct required of merchants. Courts often hold merchants, who have more experience and knowledge, to a different standard than normal consumers. This higher standard requires businesses to be even more careful when drafting and implementing a sales agreement. Consulting a business contract lawyer is prudent in these situations.

A business agreement lawyer may notice some weak points in your proposed agreement, or have some advice on how to run your business more smoothly. You won’t receive that personalized attention through an online template.
Can I use a template I found online?
You may be tempted to use a simple sales agreement template but all contracts should accurately reflect the intent of the parties so a boilerplate often leaves out important terms. Also, sales agreements typically vary depending on the industry and jurisdiction so it’s unlikely the template online fits your particular situation / sale.
What terms should go into a sales agreement?
A sales agreement should clearly describe the item and/or service. This should include a physical description and the quantity being sold. Also, the contract should list the parties entering the agreement, payment details, delivery date, and warranties (if any). Lastly, if the agreement is for the sale of goods then it’s important that the terms to satisfy the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC).
Does an affiliate agreement have to be in writing?
A bill of sale is a form which states an item’s ownership has been transferred from one party to another. It can be used as part of a sales agreement or used independently to prove that the goods officially changed hands. LawTrades assists businesses with drafting bills of sale as well.

“Great experience all around, LawTrades was just so much more personal and much better than other startup/online on-demand solutions for legal work,. Almost feels like I handpicked and hired the attorney myself. The Attorney was available to answer questions by phone or text message, so was the LawTrades rep who set the whole thing up. And when setting up new entities you always have questions, so this was a big deal for me. The Attorney assigned to my project was available on demand to help out explain things every step of the way and I think the guys at LawTrades have done a great job with making you feel extremely comfortable. After all was done I even got an email and a call from one of the co founders of the company to make sure I had a seamless experience. I never got a call from other companies I had used in the past like Legal zoom and the whole thing always felt so automated. Yes, granted Legal zoom probably have way more clients than Lawtrades and as such would not be feasible for their management to call everyone, however, that was a nice touch which I do appreciate. I will definitely be heading back to Lawtrades whenever I require legal assistance.”

“Price. I know what I am paying instead of getting surprised. Transparent pricing I know what each bit costs instead of getting a big bill and not knowing what parts cost what and how much was for service vs hard fees such as filing fees. Also things progressed rapidly.”
