Popular Terms
1. That is not a general acceptance. Qualified acceptance alters the original terms of a bill of exchange and may be treated by the bill's holder as dishonor by non-acceptance. If a holder takes a qualified acceptance without the bill drawer's or endorser's authorization or subsequent assent, the drawer or endorser is released from his or her liability on the bill.
2. Purchasing: A qualified acceptance puts the ball back in the original offeror's court who must either accept the counter offer or respond with its own counter-counter offer.
