Wholesale pricing offers businesses below-market pricing on items purchased in bulk. Wholesale pricing can vary significantly but typically, the more of an item purchased, the deeper the discount. For example, buying 1,000 units of an item might provide a 5% discount while buying 10,000 might provide a 20% discount.
Why Buy Wholesale?
Spending less on supplies and inventory helps control costs and maximize profits. This is especially true for items that are needed on a regular basis and are not being sold to consumers for profit. For example, awards and plaques for large corporations, businesses, government agencies and national nonprofits. These types of organizations give out hundreds if not thousands of awards and plaques each year. Buying those items wholesale ensures access to the correct number of awards at a great price.
The same is true for large organizations that issue uniforms like law enforcement, military, government agencies, service organizations like the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Shriners, etc. Those uniforms are adorned with pins and other insignia, and purchasing those items wholesale helps control costs and quality.
How To Choose a Wholesaler
There are four key things to consider when choosing a potential wholesaler, especially for awards, plaques, pins, medals, etc.:
- Price: Compare price for the volume of product you need vs. buying retail or in the open market and compare with other wholesalers.
- Shipping: Factor in the cost of shipping your products to your business, your employees, donors or customers.
- Stability: How long has the company been in business? New wholesalers can come with added risk – even if they offer cut-rate pricing.
- Customer Service: The wholesaler should have excellent customer service. They should be accessible and responsive, as well as transparent.
