One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The price paid for goods by a retailer to a manufacturer or wholesaler.
- ‘The firm sells hand tools and power tools at trade prices, offering next day delivery at wholesale prices.’
- ‘Winner-take-all markets pay $1 for the winning outcome and nothing to losers so the trade price in pennies represents the percent chance the proposition will be true.’
- ‘Needless to say the trade price came as something of a shock, with one retailer telling us that there was ‘no way’ they would be able to sell the console at £129.’
- ‘I'll have to go to the wholesalers and get the trade prices.’
- ‘In some trade exchanges, after a few minutes have passed a particular trade price will have no business value.’
- ‘Our nervous mole (a reseller) has unfortunately blanked out the trade price, and it could be a goof, but we think not.’
- ‘Six major wine distributors have agreed to reduce their trade price across a range of wines to allow the restaurants and hotels in the scheme to pass the saving directly to the customer.’
- ‘My boss let me buy them at trade price, which he bought them at.’
- ‘Is this because at trade prices, a year's supply only costs £3.72?’
- ‘World trade prices have been declining since 1995 and have kept inflation low across the globe.’
- ‘Noticeably larger effects are only likely to be elicited under implausibly high values of the short-run trade price elasticity.’
