What is "COM" - Definition & Explanation

Customer's Own Material -- a term describing when a customer, not the upholsterer or factory supplies material for use. It is a common practice to charge a cutting fee. This compensates somewhat for the loss of profit made on fabric sales. Some businesses do not take COM jobs.
