Commercial sales can refer to sales between businesses or from a business to a customer. Commercial sales often drive the profitability of most organizations.

Commercial sales can cover a broad spectrum of exchanges of goods or services for money. This may include businesses reaching out to other companies to buy office supplies or software. Commercial sales may also refer to companies selling goods or services, such as shoes, financial advisement or homes, directly to consumers.

The sales industry drives an economy forward, and depending on how specific sectors perform, it can indicate the strength of the overall economy.
