A lot of times I read these threads on video games and the advice is often 'buy in bulk'. And forgive me if this is a dumb question, but when we buy wholesale arent we suppose to buy in bulk? Or is buying in bulk an option to get the single unit cheaper? Like a single unit is 52.99 but in bulk each unit is 45.00(Just an example, not sure if accurate).

Just keep this in mind, the larger quanity you buy the cheaper it should be.

Normally 'buying in bulk', you could be buying as small as a pallet load or as large as a shipping container. The larger amount that you buy will normally lower the 'per unit' cost. For instant, if you bought a pallet load for $100. and it had 10 units on it, your cost 'per unit' would be $10. But if you bought a container for $1000. and it had 200 units in it, your cost 'per unit' would only be $5., thus allowing you to sell cheaper than your competition and/or increasing your profit ratio..

Also - we often emphasize the need to buy in bulk simply because a lot of people believe that they can be competitive and make a lot of money on eBay just by buying 5-10 units at a time.
