Where the property in goods which are the subject of a bargain has passed and the buyer wrongfully neglects or refuses to pay for them, the seller may recover the price,42 even though the buyer refuses to accept delivery.43

Of course credit may have been given or the price may have been payable upon condition, and unless the term of credit has expired or the condition happened, no recovery can be had. In such a case the refusal of the buyer to pay would not be wrongful. Thus if the seller has contracted to deliver the goods he cannot recover the price without tender, though the title has passed; unless indeed the goods have been destroyed or tender otherwise has been excused.44 And where the seller accepts the goods back he cannot recover the price,45 unless he revests himself with possession merely as bailee or lienholder.46
