ORS 72.2040¹
Formation in general

(1) A contract for sale of goods may be made in any manner sufficient to show agreement, including conduct by both parties which recognizes the existence of such a contract.

(2) An agreement sufficient to constitute a contract for sale may be found even though the moment of its making is undetermined.

(3) Even though one or more terms are left open a contract for sale does not fail for indefiniteness if the parties have intended to make a contract and there is a reasonably certain basis for giving an appropriate remedy. [1961 c.726 §72.2040 (Formation in general)]

Notes of Decisions

Although this sec­tion broadens range of factors available for court's considera­tion in determining whether there has been offer and seasonable acceptance, there must still be meeting of minds on actual terms of mutual undertaking in order to have contract.
