Definition Edit

An invitation to treat

consists of any statement or conduct which is intended to elicit an offer to contract from some other party (e.g. the display of goods for sale in a shop window, in a catalogue, or by some other medium, such as the Internet) is generally not considered an offer to contract. Such displays are normally considered invitations to the public to offer to purchase the goods.[1]
