Wholesale Definition

Wholesale products are sold in large quantities at a reduced price to retailers.

Wholesale Extended Definition:
Because businesses buy more products at one time from wholesale suppliers, goods are cheaper per unit than retail goods. The more goods you buy from a wholesaler, the bigger the discount you receive will be.

There are several types of wholesalers, including:

  • Manufacturers
  • Exclusive distributors
  • Wholesalers or regional distributors
  • Jobbers or brokers
