Spanish term or phrase: venta a distancia
In the event of a "venta a distancia". A long distance sale does not make any sense, so I thought maybe it was more along the lines of "remote". And so I have asked for help.
Yours gratefully,

distance selling, tele-shopping, remote selling


Explanation:
When you talk about "cursos a distancia" you use "distance learning". I feel "distance selling" is a good translation for "venta a distancia". Of course, you can also try to use something with "remote". Have a look at this URL, http://www.outreachtech.com/news/releases/v35.asp, and you'll find info on "remote selling".

"These providers are using Embrace as the foundation for enhanced service offerings that include integrated voice and data conferencing for collaboration, remote selling, and web customer care."

Hope it helps!

Long distance sales


Explanation:
Unless of course you could use 'mail order', though this specifically means selling by post.
The big problem with using remote in terms of business is that it also means 'unlikely' therefore 'remote sales'can also sound as if they are improbable sales. Hope this helps rather than complicates.
