Last Updated: March 1st, 2020
If you are looking to stock up your business cheaply, there are many options nowadays. From wholesale suppliers to closeouts purchases, each and every way you stock up brings its own advantages and occasional disadvantages. One of the most important factors is merchandise quality. To stand out in the online marketplace you have to offer high-quality at low prices.
Buying merchandise from dodgy suppliers will not cut it. You either purchase faulty merchandise or the prices are too steep to turn a significant profit, if any at all. Add to that the shipping costs and no guarantee on any of the products, you can see that business ship sinking quick.
But not all is doom and gloom. Whether you buy in person or online, there are ways of stocking up with high-quality merchandise from top retailers at prices below wholesale. The following article will let you in on the ways of buying merchandise from one of the largest retailers in the country: Walmart.
Why Buy From Walmart?
You are looking to buy high-quality merchandise at low prices. Buying Walmart merchandise enables you to do you just that, ensuring that your profit margin will be significantly larger compared to sourcing from a wholesale supplier. The quality is also high, which means you have ticked all the boxes in ‘how to run a successful resale business’ checklist. But in order to do this, you obviously cannot buy Walmart stock at the normal Walmart retail prices. Instead, what you need is Walmart liquidated merchandise.
As soon as someone mentions liquidated stock, questions about quality start popping up. In reality, a lot of merchandise that is being liquidated is either customer returned merchandise or refurbished products. But this does not have to be a bad thing, especially if you are working with a name such as Walmart.
Where to Buy Pallets of Walmart Liquidated Merchandise?
To buy customer return pallets of Walmart merchandise, you will have to look for a liquidation company. The trick is not to buy from just any liquidators claiming they are selling Walmart liquidation merchandise. In fact, never buy merchandise without verifying the source. The goal is only to buy from reputable liquidators. Luckily for you, you can buy Walmart liquidations at one of the best liquidators around, Direct Liquidation. This means that a wide range of resellers can use Direct Liquidation’s online platform to source merchandise coming directly from Walmart. And all you have to do is register for an account on the website to be granted access to this merchandise. This is not an ‘exclusive club’ for special buyers.
At the Direct Liquidation online platform, you can buy small lots or truckloads of merchandise. In any case, you will be able to find high-quality products, and are assured that no cherry-picking is going on. You can also be sure to find low prices, many well below wholesale. This will give you the best chance of staying competitive in any market while making a profit.
What’s Special about Sourcing Walmart Merchandise through Direct Liquidation?
Firstly, buying Walmart liquidations merchandise in itself is a guarantee of sorts for the quality of merchandise you are getting. Adding to that a reputable name in the liquidation business such as Direct Liquidation doubles the guarantee. How? Well as any reputable liquidator, Direct Liquidation ensures that the quality of merchandise sold through their online platform is of a certain standard, and the company sets the bar high. In addition, products get reviewed and all the details are put into the manifest that accompanies every pallet of merchandise you buy. If products are refurbished you will also get a full 90-day warranty from the liquidator.
Another advantage is the availability of merchandise, which can be an issue for seasonal buyers. While you can browse the liquidator for a wide range of products from toys to books and electronics, having a steady supply of seasonal products like clothing can be a problem. This issue is solved by sourcing Walmart merchandise at Direct Liquidation as a wide range of products, even seasonal products, is sold throughout the whole year.
This means you no longer have to worry if your supplier will have enough merchandise to cover your demand or whether you will be able to get your hands on any closeouts and overstock merchandise directly from the retailers before large wholesale buyers roll in and purchase by the truckload. There is always a choice.
For those asking why customer returns are interesting, we have to say that this type of merchandise is often the cheapest. A large portion of customer-returned merchandise gets liquidated and retailers don’t sell them as new anymore, no matter what the reason or in what condition it had been returned to the seller. Sometimes the buyers test out the product and return it because it is not to their liking. Sometimes the products get returned without being opened at all, meaning they are still in brand new condition.
This is certainly the case with end-of-season clearances and products that were pulled off the shelves to free up space for new merchandise. It has to be noted that there will be merchandise that is sold ‘as is’ because it was not tested after it was returned and prior to selling.
Another advantage of the Walmart-Direct Liquidation combo for people looking to buy pallets of customer returned merchandise is the fact that a whole team of Direct Liquidation advisors are doing their best to ensure you find the right merchandise for your business. The account representatives dedicated to the Walmart program will make sure you find the right products and you can always contact a representative either by leaving a message through the link that you see in the bottom right corner of your screen, by calling 1-888-883-2767 or scheduling a callback.
