Failing to Pay During a Long-Term Contract

In this section

If a buyer begins to slow-pay or no-pay on a long term contract, a seller can request adequate assurance from the buyer that payment will be made. The seller must notify the buyer in writing that such assurance is required. If the buyer does not respond in a reasonable time, or does not provide sufficient assurance of payment, e.g. a bond, letter of credit, or payment in advance, then the contract will have been repudiated by the buyer. The seller will then have to proceed as explained under Refusing to Accept Product by a Buyer.
