Who can use this contract?
It is suitable for a manufacturer of goods who wants to appoint a Chinese agent – or a Chinese supplier who wants an overseas agent in a defined territory for the sale of those goods.
The Agreement is designed from the point of view of the manufacturer or supplier (who is referred to in the Agreement as the Principal). If you are an agent, you may prefer our other Chines agency agreement document C102
While a distributor buys for re-sale, purchasing from the Principal, the role of an agent is to sell on behalf of the Principal and on the Principal’s terms and conditions of business, with payment being made to the Principal by the customer.
