§

2-206. Offer and acceptance in formation of contract

(1) Unless

otherwise unambiguously indicated by the language or circumstances:

(a) an offer to

make a contract shall be construed as inviting acceptance in any manner and by

any medium reasonable in the circumstances;

(b) an order or

other offer to buy goods for prompt or current shipment shall be construed as

inviting acceptance either by a prompt promise to ship or by the prompt or

current shipment of conforming or non-conforming goods, but such a shipment of

non-conforming goods does not constitute an acceptance if the seller seasonably

notifies the buyer that the shipment is offered only as an accommodation to the

buyer.

(2) Where the

beginning of a requested performance is a reasonable mode of acceptance an

offeror who is not notified of acceptance within a reasonable time may treat

the offer as having lapsed before acceptance.
