In comparison to retail, wholesalers sell products to businesses or other outlets, who are not end users. They sell products in bulk at a low price. While whole sellers partake more in business to business (B2B) transactions, retailers tend to stick to business to customer (B2C) transactions. With retailers the competition is much higher and they tend to focus more on their customers service. Wholesalers usually focus on selling a limited number of different items, while retailers usually sell a wider variety of items.
