Would you advise maybe going a different route?
If you are looking to sell wholesale and retail have a look at a product called loadedcommerce formerly creloaded. This allows for wholesale and retail on the same site.
That said so does virtuemart so I guess you've had this conversation with your developer and for the budget etc I guess VM will get you there. However you may look a t a rebuild in a few years if you need to link VM with an accounts package to make bookeeping stock control and price updates easier.
Try think of how streamlined you need this site to be for yourself to manage in the future. Then make sure your product you use can do this, or be amended easily to do so.
Make sure the VM is installed on the latest version of joomla as a standalone package so if you need to move hosters you can do so in the future.
Best of luck.
