What is a Sales Agency Agreement?

A sales agency agreement is a legal agreement between a company and an agency the company hires to perform sales services. The agreement defines the rights and obligations of both the company and the sales agency. Sometimes this agreement is called a selling agency agreement.

When putting together a sales agency agreement, companies consider the sales agency an independent contractor and not an employee of the company, so different rules, and regulations govern their relationship. Typically sales agencies will sell goods on behalf of the company in exchange for a commission on those sales.
