Negotiations that result in mutually agreed terms and conditions are essential, whether you are the business owner or the merchant. Include an organized checklist in contract negotiations to ensure that the agreement sets clear expectations, meets obligations and responsibilities, and contains safeguards to protect the best interests of both parties.
