A Supplier may entrust the distribution of its products to an Agent in the context of a Commercial Agency or Commission Agency Agreement. It may also set up a preferential relationship with a Reseller by means of an Exclusive Purchasing Agreement, a Selective Distribution Agreement, an Exclusive Distribution Agreement or a Franchise Agreement. PACTA offers templates for each of these six contracts and their translation into English.

A representative may be required to intervene as Agent for and on behalf of a Supplier. The contract then usually takes the form of a Sales Agency Agreement. The Supplier has total control over sales and establishes, by means of the Agent, direct relations with resellers or the end client, which becomes its client. The Agent benefits from protective provisos during the course of the contract execution and on termination.
