Finding Merchandise to Stock your eBay or Amazon Store
Running an online store on either eBay or Amazon can be both a very challenging and rewarding experience. Of course, the one thing that you must get right whether you’re just starting or are already an established seller on these platforms is sourcing wholesale merchandise from the right place for the right price. There was a time when this usually meant going to a local wholesaler who could provide most businesses with the stock they needed at a good enough price despite the wholesaler’s markup. Sadly, this sourcing method is pretty much defunct for any retailer looking to make a serious profit as wholesalers’ prices have crept ever closer to retail prices.
What Is An Online Liquidation Marketplace?
An online liquidation marketplace is a live auction and sales website operated by a top-tier liquidator. Unlike wholesalers, liquidators make arrangements with big-name national retailers, offering them dedicated vendor spaces on their live auction websites through which the retailers can sell their unwanted customer returns, overstock, and closeouts direct to businesses, including those retailers who run stores on eBay and Amazon.
Month after month, year after year, some of the country’s biggest retail names find themselves in possession of large amounts of surplus stock they must dispose of quickly. By far and away the biggest category of surplus stock retailers look to sell on quickly is customer returns. Thousands of products – many of them brand new and in fully-working order – are brought back to stores across the United States every year. Obliged to take them back, these returns pose a considerable headache for retailers who must dispose of them quickly so they don’t take up valuable space. This is where liquidators step in.
Liquidation specialists such as Direct Liquidation sell boxloads, pallets and truckloads of unwanted customer returns, as well as overstocked and seasonal merchandise and surplus-to-requirements stock coming from closing stores on behalf of their big-name retailer partners direct to businesses for a considerably lower price than you’ll find elsewhere.

A Huge Range Of Products To Please Your eBay And Amazon Customers
Thanks to liquidators dealing with some of the country’s biggest retail names, the choice of surplus merchandise on offer on an online liquidation auction website is very extensive. Because the national retailers sell mainly brand name goods (as well as their own, tried and trusted in-house brands) businesses looking to stock up their eBay and Amazon stores will find products coming from some of the world’s most trusted manufacturers on a liquidation marketplace.
For example, if you buy and sell wholesale electronics, you’ll find products from companies such as Apple, Sony, Beats by Dre, Samsung, Microsoft, Google and many more on a liquidation auction marketplace. If selling home improvement goods is your thing, you’ll find names such as DeWalt, Black & Decker, AcuRite, Hyper Tough, Kobalt and Loctite, to name but a few.
And if you’re looking to offer your customers cheaper, own-brand liquidated merchandise, then in Direct Liquidation’s case, you’ll also find great own-brand products such as Walmart’s Blackweb and Mainstays ranges of budget consumer electronics and home and lifestyle products.
Finding Merchandise to Stock Your Online Store
If you’re looking to stock your eBay or Amazon store with some great-quality merchandise coming from some of the world’s leading manufacturers via some of the country’s most trusted national retailers, you should look no further than what liquidators such as Direct Liquidation can offer your business.
If you’re interested in purchasing from Walmart, Amazon, Lowe’s Hardware and Target via Direct Liquidation, all you’ll need to do is sign up for a free account with a valid reseller’s license and then look for the boxload, pallet or truckload of stock your online store needs.
Once you’ve found the liquidated merchandise you wish to buy, you have several options. Most businesses opt to bid for boxloads, pallets, and truckloads in live liquidation auctions. If that’s what you want to do, you can sign up for an email alert that will notify you when the auction on the goods you’re interested in is about to start. When it does, all you have to do is enter bids and wait to see if you’re the highest bidder. If you are, all that’s left to do is pay for your goods and arrange to ship. Be sure to check out what Direct Liquidation can do for you before employing the services of a third-party – oftentimes they can offer a cheaper shipping service, saving your business even more money.
You also have the option to buy pallets, boxloads, and truckloads for a fixed or negotiated price. If a lot has a ‘Buy it Now’ button, you can pay that price and circumvent bidding on auctions, or you can approach the liquidator with a cash offer. If they find it acceptable, that’s the price you’ll pay.
Whichever way you choose to buy liquidation wholesale from a liquidator, you can rest assured you’ll be buying top-quality, brand name and own-brand products from some of the biggest names in manufacturing and some of the country’s most trusted retailers. If you want to find top-quality merchandise for your eBay or Amazon store at the cheapest price around, there is only one place you should be looking: an online liquidation marketplace.
