dating

  

Definition

Practice in seasonal industries (specially those with long lead times) where manufacturers ship goods well in advance of the actual delivery dates (for example, in September instead of November for Christmas stock). In this arrangement, the buyer gets the advantage of offering 'pre-Christmas sale,' and the manufacturer gets cash in lean months (by discounting the accounts receivable).
