Sales are activities related to selling or the number of goods or services sold in a given targeted time period.

The seller, or the provider of the goods or services195, completes a sale in response to an acquisition189, appropriation208,[1]179 requisition227, or a direct interaction with the buyer at the point of sale201. There is a passing of title (property or ownership) of the item190, and the settlement of a price191, in which agreement is reached on a price for which transfer of ownership of the item will occur. The seller, not the purchaser230, typically executes the sale and it may be completed prior to the obligation of payment196. In the case of indirect interaction, a person who sells goods or service on behalf of the owner is known as a salesman or saleswoman or salesperson, but this often refers to someone selling goods in a store/shop, in which case other terms are also common, including salesclerk233, shop assistant, and retail clerk.
