METRO offers: nine benefits for professional shopping


The more you buy of certain products at the wholesale store or online, the more you save through the bulk discount. Scaled prices already apply to over 6,500 articles in our German wholesale stores alone.

Larger quantities, smaller prices – how the METRO volume discount works

What’s behind the METRO bulk price?

The bulk price benefit for METRO customers is obvious. But what’s METRO’s objective with the buy-more-pay-less strategy?


Whether it’s ingredients from METRO Chef or METRO Premium, kitchen aids from METRO Professional, coffee specialities from Rioba or basic products from Aro – in these areas and many more, our own brands will win you over with their quality and price-performance ratio.


Digital customer cards and invoicing, current product offers and availability, Scan & Go payment and other services, mobile ordering through the METRO delivery service – the METRO app puts it all at your fingertips.

Buy more and pay less per unit – this is the principle of scaled pricing.

Turn up the volume

The bulk price creates security for planning and calculation. In addition to a customised range, this is particularly important for restaurateurs and traders.


Professional needs like large kitchen appliances or outdoor seating: our online marketplace offers over 850,000 articles. And for purchases here, no METRO card is necessary.

The METRO online marketplace is an offering of METRO MARKETS GmbH, Ria-Thiele-Straße 2 a, 40549 Düsseldorf, Germany.


Smart applications make your work easier. For example, the cloud-based cash register system DISH POS: it shortens your guests’ waiting times, relieves your staff and, with its smart interfaces, facilitates your accounting. DISH also offers ordering and reservation solutions.

We can make this service available for a period of approx. 24 months. Please observe the duty to preserve invoices and business records in accordance with Section 147 of the German Fiscal Code (AO).
