The items a business purchases to resell to customers are called inventory.

If a shoe store bought $20,000 worth of shoes, $100 worth of cleaning fluid and $300 worth of cash register tape, only $20,000 would be inventory because that is the only thing that will be sold to customers. The cleaning fluid and cash register tape will be used in the business.
