Sales are activities related to selling or the number of goods sold in a given targeted time period. The delivery of a service for a cost is also considered a sale.
The seller, or the provider of the goods or services, completes a sale in response to an acquisition, appropriation, requisition, or a direct interaction with the buyer at the point of sale. There is a passing of title (property or ownership) of the item, and the settlement of a price, in which agreement is reached on a price for which transfer of ownership of the item will occur. The seller, not the purchaser, typically executes the sale and it may be completed prior to the obligation of payment. In the case of indirect interaction, a person who sells goods or service on behalf of the owner is known as a salesman or saleswoman or salesperson, but this often refers to someone selling goods in a store/shop, in which case other terms are also common, including salesclerk, shop assistant, and retail clerk.
In common law countries, sales are governed generally by the common law and commercial codes. In the United States, the laws governing sales of goods are somewhat uniform to the extent that most jurisdictions have adopted Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code, albeit with some non-uniform variations.

    Are the Classified’s dying?

    Seems like activity on in the classifieds section is really dropping off. I feel like we hit a high in terms of peer to peer transactions a few months back. Now I see countless listings with zero replies, likes etc. that have been posted for weeks. All kinds of stuff even really good stuff...

    First time seller, need some pointers

    Yes, it's happened, like many of you said it would way back when I first posted here: I've outgrown my first gun and am itching to spend some money on something else. But what to do with this one? I have a couple of questions. Do stores take trade-ins? I've got my eye on a Beretta PX4 at...

    Oregon  Selling guns in state and out of state

    I have a lever-action rifle, wheel gun and pistol I wish to sell on here. I understand (I think) that in Oregon I will have to take it to a dealer, who will charge me, to ship it to another dealer who will likely charge the buyer, at least for the background check. Do I need to do the same...

    The gun(s) you regretted selling?

    So, for reasons unknown, I'm getting the urge to do another purge of the collection. (Maybe it is a relocation soon or that we're looking at a PS90 for the sidekick or I'm just bored / wacky). There are a handful I'm looking long and hard at selling in the coming days. Which brings up the...

    WA resident buying a handgun in OREGON?

    I will be driving through next week. Would like to pick up a handgun I found on here. Would like to do the purchase and transfer in Oregon. But if I can't the alternative would be to ship it to an ffl here for transfer. Not sure if the added expense would be worth it.

    Is it just me, or are guns selling cheaper?

    I've been eye-ballin' various firearms lately and notice a trend. Prices have dropped quite a bit. I'm guessing the gun-sales business is down? Ya'd think, in the day-n-age of mass-shootings, they'd go UP! Too bad I couldn't time it better, a LOT of good deals out there that might reap...

    Idaho  Best approach to private party handgun sale

    I've looked over the forum and interweb. Seem to be no specific requirements other than the buyer can be prohibited and must be over 18. Sounds simple (compared to CA), but how does a seller insure that the buyer is not prohibited? One suggestion I've run across is to require evidence of a...
