How to Buy Pallets from Amazon Liquidations
Last Updated: February 5th, 2020
Buying merchandise wholesale and selling it on to the public can be a very rewarding and potentially lucrative occupation if you purchase the merchandise you wish to sell from the right source.
Back in the day, that used to mean sourcing stock from a local wholesaler who was able to supply retail businesses with good-quality wholesale merchandise at a price that meant there was still plenty of room to make a profit regardless of what premium the wholesaler had slapped on the goods they sold.
Sadly, things have changed over the last few years, and it’s a change that has been having a detrimental effect on many small retail businesses. While it used to be perfectly possible to source cheap, good quality merchandise from a local supplier, this is getting harder to do as wholesale prices veer ever closer to their retail equivalents. As this happens, the chances for a small retail business to make a profit are diminishing as every year goes by, and that can only spell disaster.
So, what can a retailer do to turn back the tide? Well, a great way to stock your business with all the wholesale merchandise it needs is to source stock from a liquidation marketplace, in particular products that come from one of the biggest retail names on the planet – Amazon.
What Are Amazon Liquidations?
Every year, Amazon finds itself in a situation faced by all major retailers whether they operate a network of stores or they’re entirely online. They end up with large amounts of products they either cannot or do not want to sell.
These products, which in the case of Amazon are usually customer returned products or overstocked items, present the giant online retailer with a potential headache. Unwilling to sell these goods on their site, this type of merchandise becomes stock that’s taking up valuable warehouse space that should be being used to house new products Amazon can sell for full price.
So, how does Amazon solve this headache? It turns to specialist, top-tier liquidation companies such as Direct Liquidation. Direct Liquidation is an online liquidation marketplace where businesses can buy wholesale merchandise sourced directly from Amazon Liquidation. And because this is stock Amazon wishes to dispose of quickly, it’s willing to sell its returns and overstock at a considerable discount.
A Great Range Of Top-Quality Products
As you would expect from a company that sells pretty much anything you can think of, Amazon Liquidations cover a huge range of products in an extensive array of categories. On Direct Liquidation’s Amazon landing page, for example, you’ll find top-quality merchandise being sold in a variety of conditions ranging from ‘as new’ to ‘tested-not-working’ being sold well below its MSRP in either pallets or truckloads.
You’ll find a great range of products to buy wholesale in categories ranging from state-of-the-art consumer electronics, children’s toys and games and food and drink, to home improvement products, patio and garden supplies and even parts and tools for the automotive industry.
The range of manufacturers whose products Amazon sells via Direct Liquidation’s online liquidation marketplace is also very impressive. On Direct Liquidation’s site, you’ll find Amazon Liquidations offering business customers products from such companies as Fisher-Price, Hasbro, Disney, HP, DeWalt, Nestle, and Hitachi, to name but a tiny fraction of the manufacturers whose products Amazon has to offer.
And, as has been mentioned, all can be bought in pallets or truckloads from Amazon at a fraction of their retail value, meaning you’ll have plenty of room in which to make a healthy profit on the Amazon goods you source from Direct Liquidation’s online liquidation sales platform.
How To Buy Amazon Liquidations Pallets
If you’ve decided that you wish to take advantage of the great range of Amazon Liquidations products available to buy at Direct Liquidation’s comprehensive online liquidation sales platform, the process has been made as easy as possible.
First, you’ll need a valid reseller’s license to open up a free account. After that, simply locate the pallet of Amazon liquidated stock you wish to purchase, and you then have several options available to you. Most pallets and truckloads of Amazon merchandise are available to buy via live liquidation auctions that take place on Direct Liquidation’s website every day.
If you plan to bid for a pallet of Amazon merchandise, you can set up an email alert on the pallet you’re interested in which will send you a notification of when the auction on that pallet is about to start. Then it’s just a matter of entering bids and seeing if you’re the successful auction winner.
A note of caution here – make sure you set a maximum bid after working out how much profit you expect to make out of a pallet of Amazon goods. You should take into account such factors as shipping costs, any taxes you may be liable to pay, any fees you’re likely to incur (for example, if you plan on selling your wholesale merchandise at a local flea market or online via a site like Shopify or eBay), etc. Don’t be tempted to go above your set upper limit. Liquidators such as Direct Liquidation have new pallets of Amazon products arriving on their site on a very regular basis, so if you miss out on one pallet, you can rest assured there’ll be another one along shortly on which you can bid on.
If you’re the successful bidder, it’s then just a simple matter of arranging your shipping and waiting for your goods to arrive so you can get selling the great products Amazon has to offer to your happy customers. If you don’t wish to bid on a pallet of Amazon goods, you usually have the option to buy pallets or truckloads at a fixed or a negotiated price too. You’ll still end up with a pallet of goods bought for well below that pallet’s total worth. So, if you need a pallet in a hurry and don’t want to wait for it to go under the hammer, this could be the option for you.
Buying pallets of Amazon Liquidations from Direct Liquidation’s online liquidation marketplace couldn’t be easier. If you’re on the lookout for great quality wholesale merchandise from one of the world’s most trusted retail giants, we recommend you check out what Direct Liquidation has to offer your business today.
