American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition
- n. One that sells or vends: a street vendor; a vendor of software products on the Web.
- n. A vending machine.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. Same as vender, but more common in legal use. In the law of conveyancing the word is commonly used in reference to the preliminary or executory contract of sale, usually made in writing before the execution of a deed to transfer the title, and designates him who agrees to sell, and who after he has actually conveyed is commonly called the grantor. So if A contracts, not as agent but on his own account, to sell and convey property belonging to B, and procures B to convey accordingly, A is the vendor and B the grantor.
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. A vender; a seller; the correlative of vendee.
- n. someone who promotes or exchanges goods or services for money
- From Old French vendeor, from Latin venditor ("seller"), from vendere ("to sell, cry up for sale, praise"), contraction of venundare, venumdare, also, as originally, two words venum dare ("to sell"), from venum ("sale, price") + dare ("to give"). (Wiktionary)
