English term or phrase: feste Rechnung
"Der Distributor bestellt die Produkte auf feste Rechnung zu den bei Auftragserteilung gültigen Preisen."
In fester Rechnung liefern heißt nicht in Kommission und ohne Rückgaberecht.
Does anyone know the equivalent in English? Thanks for your help.

Here it undoubtedly means


Explanation:
'against cash or outright payment (sometimes indeed also 'purchase')'.

Emphasis lies more on the fact that immediate payment is wanted

Feste Rechnung = cash sale, cash transaction...

feste/verbindliche BESTELLUNG


Explanation:
I have been very bewildered because 'feste Rechnung' gibt es nicht.
A 'Rechnung' is by definition very 'fest', so you don' have to add 'feste'. I beleive a foreigner wrote it or very 'müde' German but he/she meant 'feste Bestellung'. To strengthen it you would use 'verbindliche'.
