It doesn’t matter if you are the buyer or the seller—the importer or the exporter—you need a written sales contract for your international transactions. This 75-minute webinar tells you why.
You can’t complete an international sale without two basic steps: an offer from the buyer and an acceptance by the seller. Those two actions constitute a sales contract. But what exactly are you agreeing to? Without a written contract agreed upon by both parties, you can end up in a “battle of the forms.” What takes precedence—the exporter’s quotation or the importer’s purchase order.
On Friday, May 7, at 12:00 pm CDT, attorney and licensed customs broker Jack Shelton explains the fundamentals of a sales contract including why you need a written contract, what laws govern the contract, and which of the terms and conditions on each of those forms takes precedence over the others.
