What's a consignment agreement?
A consignment arrangement allows someone to sell goods through a party who will collect a fee or a percentage once the goods are sold. The responsibilities of the two parties regarding the storage, display, sale, or delivery of the goods, and other factors, can vary according to the agreed terms. This is why it is important to make those terms clear up front with a consignment agreement.
