Bulk Order

(redirected from Bulk Orders)

Bulk Order

An order to buy a large quantity of a good at once. This may occur at either the retail or the wholesale levels. For example, a coffee shop may make a bulk order for coffee because it needs to sell to its customers. An individual may order the same amount simply because he/she does not want to go shopping for it very often. Buying in bulk is often less expensive per unit than buying otherwise, because marginal costs tend to decrease the more a company produces or sells.
