Warranty of Merchantability

A guarantee by a seller that a good or service reasonably meets the buyer's expectations. For example, if one buys a telephone, the warranty of merchantability requires the seller to ensure that the phone is able to make and receive calls. The warranty of merchantability is implied unless the seller specifically states otherwise. See also: Caveat emptor.
