vente à livrer
Explanation:
Bill-and-hold is a common way that customers order products from manufacturers. It is generally not illegal or unethical. In fact, you may have done this yourself. A good example for a cranberry farmer is when you order chemicals in advance of when you need them and ask the retailer to hold them until a given date. Large companies may order in advance and ask the manufacturer to withhold delivery because they don't have the warehouse space available and sales aren't anticipated for a certain period of time.
