Simple Distributor Agreement

Distributor agreements are designed for forming a relationship between a distributor and a supplier. They state the terms and conditions of the arrangement.


A distributor agreement is used for outlining the details involved in a supplier-distributor relationship. It gives a retailer the right to sell a specific product supplied by the distributor. It eliminates misunderstandings between the two parties.


When a distributor agreement is created, it specifies if the supplier is an exclusive seller of the goods or not. It also specifies if certain information regarding the products is confidential between the two parties.



A distributor agreement states the date, names and addresses of both parties. The agreement outlines all details of the arrangement. It tells the supplier their rights and obligations for selling the products, pricing, terms, purchase order processing and shipping procedures. This agreement also explains advertising requirements and stipulations on how the goods are sold.
