I appreciate that you’re ready to place a large order, but I think a 30 percent discount is a bit too high for us.
I understand, but we get a bulk discount from most of our suppliers.
But with that much of a discount we would barely make a profit.
We would market your product in more than 300 stores nationwide. You should take that into consideration.
Of course we do, Andy. But I also believe business should be conducted on a level playing field.
bulk discount 数量割引(大量注文による割引)
make a profit 利益を出す
take ~into consideration ～を考慮に入れる
be conducted 行われる

I hope we’ll be able to find a good solution to this.
