Trade and types of trade

Trade and types of trade, Trade and types of trades. Trade is part or branch of commerce or let’s say one the main divisions of commerce.

WHAT IS TRADE?

Trade is the act of buying and selling of goods and services. The word trades also consists of trade by barter which we will treat in later on. Every human being engages in one form of trading activity or the other. 

HOW CAN WE DIFFERENTIATE TRADE FROM COMMERCE?

The difference between trade and commerce is not so difficult to understand because trades is centered on buying and selling of goods but commerce encompass buying and selling, distribution and exchange of goods and services.

TYPES OF TRADE

Trade which is concerned with buying and selling has two major areas or we can Trade is divided into 2 groups. These groups of trade are Home trade and foreign trades. The home trade type is divided into wholesaling and retailing type of trade. Here retail trade is the act of buying and selling of goods in small quantities. The retail involves small scale businesses like hawking, petty trading and they mainly buy their goods from wholesalers and so the retail trade is the final link in the distribution of goods channel.

The wholesaling is the type of trade that engages in the buying goods and services in large quantities, stores these goods, distribute to retailers, grants credit facilities to producers and manufacturers alike.

IMPORTANCE OF TRADE

There are several importance of trades which am going to list under. at least now you have fully understand the term trade and commerce so let’s go on and state the various importance of trades.

  1. Trade makes it possible that goods produced in different countries can be found in other countries other than the place of production. The importance of trade is known as distribution
  2. Trades make makes the exchange of goods possible like trade by barter
  3. With the help of retail trade a consumers in the remote places can get what they want to buy from hawkers and petty traders around their communities instead of going to cities looking for wholesalers.
  4. Trade makes it possible to bye-pass trades by barter system of trading of the past where people will have to wait or go about looking for wants what they have as goods before they too can get   exchange their goods
  5. Foreign trades helps a country to earn foreign exchange from import and export of goods and services
