How to Buy Case Lot Groceries Online

Case lot groceries are food and household items sold in unit cases, as opposed to individually. Purchasing them online is a way to save money, take advantage of lowered prices and stock up on grocery staples. You can expect to receive a typical 15 percent discount on case lots. You don't have to worry about the inconvenience of locating a local wholesaler and you can take advantage of websites' national shipping capabilities.

Find a case lot grocery supplier online. Use a search engine (like Google, Bing, or Yahoo). Amazon offers some case lot groceries as well.

Sign up for the supplier’s account, with a user name and password. Some suppliers may charge a fee for their services; others offer a discount on shipping.

Add the groceries to the online cart, and then add your credit card information and place your order. Depending on the shipper, you should receive your groceries between two and five days.


  • Compare case lot prices at different websites to determine the best price per unit and the lowest shipping cost.
