In addition to the type of packaging (bag, carton, bucket, canister, etc.), offers are specified with delivery units, the scope of which is defined by the seller.
Product and Packaging
Both the minimum purchase quantity and the availability are displayed in delivery units and are also defined by the seller.
A delivery unit can be, for example, an outer carton with 8 canisters suitable for postal dispatch or a Euro pallet with 25 bags.
If the seller specifies a minimum purchase quantity of 4 delivery units, this corresponds in the example of the canisters to four cartons of 8 canisters each. In the case of palletised bags, this would be four pallets of 25 bags each.
