- If a television company generally includes a 30-day warranty with their television sales, this 30-day warranty may be part of the course of dealing.
- In the event that parties disagree over how a contract term should be interpreted, a court may look to the course of dealings to interpret the likely intentions of the parties. That said, a course of dealing cannot contradict explicit contract terms.
Course of dealing differs from the related course of performance because course of performance concerns conduct after a contract has been formed whereas course of dealing is concerned with conduct that occurred before the contract in question was formed.
