This chapter notes the boundaries of a sales contract. A contract of sale usually implies that the seller is obligated to deliver the goods and transfer property, while the buyer, on the other hand, has to pay the price. The implication changes in many countries as some elements specify the need for money as payment. The distinction is made between an agreement to sell and sale to the contract of sale in terms of common law. The chapter then discusses the framework agreements which remain pertinent to the realms of uniform law. It explores sales by auction, other supply of goods contracts, and mixed contracts.
