Do retailers aim to source stock at 65% off RRP?

    I have been trying to provide the best service I can to retailers/ reseller by offering them the best prices on newly released designer clothing, toys and homeware.

    I have had a few clients state 35% profit margins is their target in the price range £20-£40.

    Selling B2B, I can just about provide these prices due to the large units I stock, reaching economy of scale.

    Would you agree with this %?

    It works for me as I sell lots through my B2B group buy community so I can afford to offer these low wholesale prices.

    Does anyone have anything to add on this topic?

    This will depend on many factors, mainly being which industry the products are in, and is the retailer selling on or offline.

    So for example, online retailers of clothing have astronomical return rates which cost them a fortune in postage, re-packaging etc so they need higher margins than allot of other industries.
