A merchandise distribution agreement, sometimes also called a distributor agreement, is a document between two parties, a supplier and a distributor. The supplier may be a person or a company/business and is the party that supplies or sells the goods to the distributor. The distributor may also be a person or a company and is the party that distributes or resells (at retail or through other distributors) the goods that the supplier provides.

The most important details of the relationship between the parties will be set out in a distribution agreement, including a description of the goods sold, how and when the distributor is expected to pay, whether the agreement is exclusive, and what the penalties are for early termination. A contract for the distribution of goods also covers what happens in the event of a problem, such as dispute resolution.

The purpose of the agreement is to allow the distributor to resell the supplier's products based on the terms of the contract within a specific geographic area. The agreement is common in retail and in consumer sales.


How to use this document?

This document can be used when a supplier and a distributor are preparing to enter into a new goods distribution agreement.

In this document, the Form Filler will be able to enter relevant identifying information, such as whether the parties are individuals/persons or companies/businesses, as well as their respective addresses and contact information. The Form Filler will also enter the most important features of the agreement between the parties, such as the duration of the contract, dispute resolution and applicable law, and of course all relevant details regarding the actual distribution relationship.

When this agreement is completed, it must be printed, signed by both parties, and a copy must be kept with each of them.


Applicable Law

In Canada, distribution agreements are subject to both federal legislation and specific provincial and territorial laws, which cover general contract principles such as mutual understanding. Federal laws may restrict what can be the basis of the contract (for example, no one can contract to sell something illegal), but the laws of each province and territory may regulate the interpretation of the contract in the event of a dispute.
