(A) Tender of delivery requires that the seller put and hold conforming goods at the
buyer's disposition and give the buyer any notification reasonably necessary to enable
the buyer to take delivery. The manner, time, and place for tender are determined by the agreement and sections 1302.01 to 1302.98, inclusive, of the Revised Code, and in particular:
