AS 45.02.603. Merchant Buyer's Duties as to Rightfully Rejected Goods.

(a) Subject to a security interest in the buyer (AS 45.02.711 (c)), if the seller has no agent or place of business at the market of rejection, a merchant buyer is under a duty after rejection of goods in the buyer's possession or control to follow reasonable instructions received from the seller with respect to the goods and, in the absence of the instructions, to make reasonable efforts to sell them for the seller's account if they are perishable or threaten to decline in value speedily. Instructions are not reasonable if on demand indemnity for expenses is not forthcoming.

(b) If the buyer sells goods under (a) of this section, the buyer is entitled to reimbursement from the seller, or out of the proceeds, for reasonable expenses of caring for and selling them, and if the expenses include no selling commission then to such commission as is usual in the trade or if there is none to a reasonable sum not exceeding 10 percent on the gross proceeds.

(c) In complying with this section, the buyer is held only to good faith, and good faith conduct here is not acceptance, conversion or the basis of an action for damages.
