INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Counterpurchase'

The first contract is the original sales contract, outlining the terms in which an initial buyer purchases from an initial seller. The second contract, a parallel contract, outlines the terms in which the original seller agrees to buy unrelated goods from the original buyer. Basically this is a contractually enforced relationship between two parties who agree, at some point, to provide business for one another.
