Benefits of buying tea cups in bulk include having many cups available for events, such as parties and picnics, and saving money through bulk discounts. To make extra money, people who own extensive tea cup sets can rent the cups out for events or host events for other people.
The main advantage of buying items in bulk is paying a smaller price per unit. Depending on the retailer, a customer may be able to buy tea cups in sets or by the case, with those sold by the case typically offering the most savings. Buying in bulk requires less time than buying each tea cup individually, making it a more convenient buying option. For online purchases, customers can also save money on shipping costs by buying in bulk.
To decide whether to buy tea cups in bulk, the customer should consider how many tea cups she needs and how she plans to use them. Buying in bulk typically costs more up-front, and a case of tea cups takes up more storage space than a small set. If the customer doesn't need many tea cups, the benefits of buying in bulk may not outweigh the additional up-front cost and space requirements.
