English translation: consignment clients

Bus/Financial - Law: Contract(s) / in a Distribution Agreement
German term or phrase: Kommissionskunden
I'm quite surprised not to find this in the glossaries as it probably is a basic term. I understand this to be a customer who retails items provided to it on a sale or return basis. However, if I google "Commission customer" or "commission client", this doesn't return the hits I'd expect and so I'm wondering if there is another, or better, term?
