Businesses of all types and sizes rely on wholesale pricing to sell products. But what is wholesale? Who has access to wholesale pricing of premium products such as authentic, organic Konjac sponges? How does wholesaling differ from retailing or distributing? Finally, what is wholesale private labeling? Read on for the definitive answer to what is wholesale, along with the benefits of becoming a wholesale partner.  

What is Wholesale?

Wholesaling is defined as the “act of buying goods in bulk from a manufacturer at a discounted price and selling to a retailer for a higher price.” But this definition doesn’t fully answer the question “what is wholesale,” because it omits who is doing the buying, selling, or distributing. 

In a wholesale partnership, the manufacturer is also called the supplier. The buyers may be distributors or independent retailers, including online retailers. So, a common wholesale partnership arrangement would work like this:

An online cosmetics and wellness company purchases bulk quantities of Konjac sponges. Because they are buying in bulk, they receive the discounted wholesale price. They then sell the products online at a higher price to earn a profit.

 Another example illustrating the answer to “what is wholesale” would be a beauty distribution company buying Konjac sponges in bulk and then selling them to retailers, who then sell them to the public. 

So, at Yamamoto Farms, both independent retailers and distributors can become wholesale partners, benefiting from discounted pricing on Konjac sponges.
