This is probably likely. When ordering items you have get invoiced and have a certain amount of time to pay the bill. And sometimes it percentages of the bill in several phases. If they require that you order such a high amount, that you can't pay the amount within that time frame from sold merchandise, then you have to pull from other areas. I paid invoices for a long time and the terms were often really interesting with some companies.
