Dealer Invoice Prices
Car dealers buy wholesale and sell retail, the way most retail businesses works.

It stems from the fact that dealers often advertise "will sell at invoice" or "below invoice prices" and have brought the attention on themselves. Automotive customers are more aware of the fact that car dealers sell at different prices to different customers, and that it is actually possible to buy a car at or below wholesale price (because dealers say so). Customers want the best deal possible, and expect to get the same kind of deal that other customers are getting.
