(redirected from sella)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Medical, Legal, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.


A person or organization that relinquishes ownership of some asset in exchange for some monetary compensation. In a cash sale, the seller receives cash or a cash equivalent immediately in exchange for the asset. In a credit sale, the seller surrenders ownership immediately in exchange for future payment, often with interest. A seller is distinguished by the fact that he/she receives payment, as opposed to a buyer, who gives payment, or a donor, who relinquishes an asset for free. See also: Buyer.

The distinction between these two groups is important in terms of the application of appropriate MARKETING STRATEGIES.
