In this limited capacity, SlowCo is not a party to the resulting sale contracts between you and each Customer (Sale Contract).
    2. Each Customer’s obligation to pay amounts due under a Sale Contract shall be satisfied when SlowCo takes payment from the Customer as ‘merchant of record’ and the Customer will see SlowCo as merchant of record on the Customer’s card or payment account statement.

    3. In any other case, we will do this by notifying you in writing.  Under this arrangement, SlowCo acts on behalf of Brands as their agent but SlowCo does not disclose to Customers the name of the brands on whose behalf it is acting. From a tax perspective, SlowCo is deemed to have bought the Products from Brands and then sold them to Customers.
