About Agency and Distribution Agreements
While the overall aim is similar, agency and distribution arrangements are quite different. An agency arrangement will typically employ a third party to negotiate and conclude contracts on behalf of the owner of a product; a distributor will buy goods to sell on their own behalf.
An agent will receive a commission for the products sold, usually as a percentage of the net sales prices, while a distributor will retain the price received for goods sold, for example.
The decision over which route to take depends upon individual circumstances and preferences. We are able to assist you in making that decision, ensuring it is the best for you and your business.
