    for the account of

    Hi,

    could you please tell me what "for the account of the business" means in the following sentence used in a Dealer Agreement:

    The dealer shall order the products for the account of the business at the prices applicable at the time when the order is placed.

    Does it mean "for business purposes"?

    Thank you very much.

    Hanka
