UPDATE: Retreiving without installing

I work on a SuSE SLES12 SP5 and I would like to retrieving rpms without installing them because I want to optimize the time of my work.
Is it possible to retrieve rpms with zypper and install them in a second time?

    @alessandro.marano-cic@ibm.com Hi, yes just use the --download-only or -d switch;

    zypper up --help
    zypper up --download-only

    For any of the zypper commands you can add the --help option to see what switches are available ;)
