For a name, see Bayer or Beyer or Beyers. For the occupation in the fashion industry, see Buyer (fashion).A buyer is any person who pay to acquire an courier or service in return for some form of business.
When someone acts as a regular buyer of certain assets for commercial purposes, the term "buyer" has a specific meaning as a job function. For example, a "buyer" is a person who purchases finished goods, typically for resale, for a firm, government, or organization; while a person who purchases material used to make goods is sometimes called a purchasing agent. In product management, the buyer is the entity that decides to obtain the product. A buyer's primary responsibility is obtaining goods of acceptable quality at a suitable price. This usually requires research, writing requests for bids, proposals or quotes, and evaluating information received.
