In economics and commerce, an end user[a] is a person that uses a particular product. A product may be purchased by several intermediaries, who are not users, between the manufacturer and the end user, or be directly purchased by the end user as a consumer. For example, the end user of a pharmaceutical product is the patient who takes it, rather than distributors, pharmacists and physicians who may purchase it in their behalf.
An end user of a computer system or software is someone who uses it.
In contracts in some jurisdictions, the term end user is a legal term for a non-reseller. This legal construct is used in End-User License Agreements (EULAs); the end user is the user, rather than purchaser, of the subject of the Agreement.
