When a Store Owner lists an item or product for sale on Swell Market and a buyer agrees to purchase the item, the parties have entered into a binding agreement which both parties are required to fulfill. The Store Owner should sell and the buyer should buy the goods or services for the price agreed to by the Store Owner and its buyer.
