Hello, my name is Nicholas, and I have a very important question to ask, okay
For example, The minimum opening order Is $500, and I  want to spend exactly
That much and nothing over that, I want to buy, A couple 8 ounce bottles of
Exfoliating Cleanser with Salicylic 2%, The Wholesale is 51-199 units, Priced at

For the wholesale units, Does that mean I have to order Between51-199 bottles,
Quantity wise? Or can I order as many bottles as I would like to order, for example
One or two bottles. I have uploaded a document, relating to what I'm referring about,
To show you an example, Thank you very much for your Time ,and understanding.


In order to get the $8.40/bottle price, it looks like you have to by at least 51 bottles. The company appears to only sell wholesale and so doesn't even offer its products in quantities under 51.

If you wanted to spend the minimum of $500, you could order

($500)/($8.40/bottle) = 59.52 bottles --> 59 bottles.

So you can call them up and say you want 59 bottles and they should charge you (59 bottles)($8.40/bottle) = $495.60.

But I think you are out of luck if you only want a couple of bottles. You'd have to contact a retailer to get that low a quantity.
