    can you summarize that and give it to the forum as 3 brief sentences?

    I thought wholesale is the buying of a good in bulk. Then the wholesaler would turn around and sell that (with a markup) to retailers or sell the items themselves to get a larger margin. No?

    I have to agree that the above description is a little much. A wholesaler sells bulk products at a discounted rate to the retail, who can then mark it up to sell as a retailer. Wholesalers will offer products that can be sold as is, product that must be repackaged into retail sizes, or product that can be used in the manufacturing of retail products. Wholesalers can also sell as retailers as well.

    Wholesaling, jobbing, or distributing is the sale of goods or merchandise to retailers; to industrial, commercial, institutional, or other professional business users; or to other wholesalers and related subordinated services. In general, it is the sale of goods to anyone other than a standard consumer. In the United Kingdom, the Cash and Carry is a term used describe a wholesale warehouse, particularly those that are open to the general public on payment of a subscription.
