International Sales Contract
Contracts provide the formal written understanding between buyers and sellers in transactions for the sale and purchase of goods. In the last decade, proper international sales contracts have become of increasing importance, even in countries where business was traditionally done simply with a handshake. Understanding international sales contracts is vital to anyone involved in the cross-border sale or purchase of goods.

Drafting the International Sales Contract
“Drafting the International Sales Contract” was specifically written for non-attorney international businesspeople who need to understand international contracts and prepare their own contracts for the sale of goods. Along the way, this guide has become a best seller for domestic attorneys who are called upon to write contracts for clients who buy and sell internationally.

“Drafting the International Sales Contract” also provides a complete international sales contract template that you can use to create your own contract. Simply delete unnecessary clauses and fill in the blanks.
