    correct expression

    Hi,

    could you please help me? I am trying to find the correct expression:

    If a buyer sells the goods he purchased from the seller back to the seller, is it called a "sale back" or "back sale" or otherwise?

    Thanks a lot!

    That's a sellback. Similarly for the seller, it's a buyback.
    Buyback is in most dictionaries. Sellback must be a more recent usage.
    sellback - definition of sellback by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.
