Agent Vs Distributorship: Agent: An agent is a representative located abroad and earning a commission on the sales it makes on  behalf of the exporter. An agent cannot negotiate prices, delivery, or other sales terms with the buyer, but only  represents the decisions made by the exporter. Distributor: A distributor is also located abroad, but it purchases goods from the exporter, with the idea of  reselling them in its country, earning a profit in the process. The distributor is setting its own prices and has an inventory of goods to sell: It is most often  responsible for after-sale service as well. Agency vs Distributorship : There is no international agreement on the way each of these relationships is governed. In most  cases, the country of residence of the agent or of the distributor considers that it has jurisdiction

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
