What is the difference between wholesale and retail?

Answer:

Retailer buys from wholesaler and sells to customer.

Retailer has costs, (like rent, employees, taxes, loss/breakage, advertising, etc.) and needs to make a profit (which is the reason they are in business). Those added items must be placed on the price charged the customers, above what the retailer paid for the product.

Many costs a wholesaler incurs don't change much, if selling one or a thousand of something (say the phone bill, or clerks payroll for taking an order are the same if for 1 or 100 of something). So, as long as they sell a lot of something, they can sell it for less than if they sold one of it. Hence, the wholesale price is for wholes (or large) quantities.

Wholesale is a bulk sale by a manufacturer or distributor to for resale to a retailer. Retail is any sale to an individual or company for end use. In almost all states it is illegal to sell wholesale to an individual, or claim to sell wholesale when it is for end use and not for resale. Also in most states wholesalers may not sell to the public. Wholesale sales do not carry sales tax, as sales tax is charged to the end user. Thus is a "wholesaler" were to sell an individual something and charge the sales tax it would be by definition a retail sale and it would be deceptive to claim that it was a wholesale sale or that the merchant was a wholesaler. It is unethical for some one to break the law. One should strongly consider whether or not one should do business with any unethical party as it is likely if that party bend or break the rules he or she is more likely not to be honest with you or honor warranties etc. End result, you get what you pay for.

When you have a resale number and purchase merchandise from another business — known as a business-to-business (B2B) transaction — you probably won’t be charged sales tax when you purchase your stock because you’ll be paying sales tax when you sell the items.

If your state has a sales tax, a sales tax number (the number you use when you file your sales tax statement with your state) is required before you officially sell anything. If sales tax applies, you may have to collect the appropriate sales tax for every sale that ships within your state.

When you have your resale number, you can go anywhere you want to buy merchandise. If you want to buy direct from a manufacturer, you can. Unfortunately, many manufacturers have a minimum order amount, which may be more than you want to spend (and you’d get more of a particular item than you’d ever want at once). To remedy that, see whether you can find independent retailers who buy in quantity — and who will (perhaps) let you in on some quantity buys with manufacturers. For example, you could buy in with a couple of local shops when they purchase their orders.
