Trade Discount

In some industries the advertised price is routinely discounted for sales to target market segments such as trade buyers. For example, individual customers may pay the gross price for paint, but intermediaries like commercial painters would pay the gross price less a discount of 40%. This allows the commercial painter to ‘mark up’ the price they pay for the paint to make a margin on the paint cost to them.
