Wholesaling Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

Wholesaling is the sale or distribution of products to someone other than the end user. These clients will in turn resell those products to other consumers. Wholesalers are often referred to as “middle men” since they often sell to retailers or other wholesalers.

One of the biggest wholesaling incentive involves providing the buyer with a discounted rate in return for a large order. To this extent, wholesalers must be skilled in negotiations so ensure they receive the lowest prices from the manufacturers. Being able to haggle can afford one wholesaler better pricing and having this skill allows for a decent margin that helps hide costs and increases profits. Aside from pricing, businesses involved in wholesaling also must consider logistics and marketing services when it comes to selling their product. Getting the information to the end user quickly is key to staying on top.
