Automatic Reorder

A way a business attempts to create residual income in which it sells a certain, stated order to a customer at regular intervals until the customer cancels. For example, a potato chip wholesaler may sell 1,000 bags of potato chips to a grocery store every week until the store decides to no longer buy them. This also helps the buyer control its inventory.
