Dealer: As the name suggests, it refers to a merchant who purchases goods from a company. They do not buy goods for their own use, but resell them.

The second is that some distributors have begun to enter the retail field, extend downstream of the channel, stabilize and consolidate their position in the market;
The third is to maximize the acquisition of advantageous product resources, share operating costs and operating risks with products, and pursue the category scale of business operations. Regrettably, more distributors are becoming vassals of the manufacturers, and they are completely "trapped" by the manufacturers.
