Who Sells Wholesale Pallets of Amazon Liquidation Customer Returns?
If you’re looking for a reliable source of wholesale merchandise that won’t cost the earth, but will increase the likelihood of your business making a decent return on your wholesale purchase, you should consider buying pallets of Amazon liquidation customer returns from a top-tier liquidator such as Direct Liquidation.

- High volume liquidators can supply your business with Amazon returns pallets as and when required.

What Are Amazon Customer Returns?
Every year, the retail giant Amazon takes back huge quantities of stock returned by customers for a number of reasons ranging from the products they have purchased not working, to products being superficially or very visibly damaged, to brand new products being returned simply because the customer has changed their minds about their purchase. 49% of retailers now offer free shipping and a no-quibble returns policy. While this has improved the shopping experience for customers, it’s led to a huge upsurge in customer returns, and as one of the world’s biggest retailers, Amazon is bearing the brunt of a massive upswing in customers taking advantage of these services.
Whatever the reason for items ending up back with Amazon, many of these items are longer relisted for sale as new, even if they are new. Instead, these returns are bundled up into pallets and truckloads and sold to liquidators who in turn sell these pallets to businesses, usually for considerably less than their overall MSRP value.
Why Buy Amazon Liquidation Returns?
There are now over 220 million digital shoppers in the United States. To effectively tap into this enormous market, resellers need to be on the lookout for the cheapest sources of wholesale merchandise they can find so they can offer this potentially huge customer base the most attractive prices around, while still making sure they make as much profit as possible. After all, there’s no point there being 220 million online digital shoppers if none of them are attracted by your products or prices.
Buying pallets of Amazon liquidations is a great way of ensuring you attract as many of those potential customers as you possibly can. Amazon is a giant of the retail world, with net revenue rocketing from an already impressive $6.2 billion in 2004 to an eye-watering $280.5 billion in 2019. Amazon sells pretty much anything you care to imagine from fashion and fashion accessories, to the latest electricals, food and drink, toys and games, sports and leisure equipment and much more besides. That means they take back customer returns in a vast array of categories.
The advantage of buying pallets of Amazon customer returns from a liquidator is that, as most are sold untested (unless it’s refurbished electronics – more on that later), they are sold for considerably less than other types of wholesale pallets.
Of course, that does mean that some items in an Amazon returns pallet will be in an unsellable condition, but that entirely depends on the type of pallet you buy. For example, a pallet of home furnishings will most likely contain mostly sellable goods right out of the pallet, whereas a pallet of electronics will contain a certain percentage of unsellable items, or ones in need of repair. As a rule of thumb, a pallet of electronics will have an estimated up to 75% ‘plug and play’ hit rate.
Where To Buy Pallets Of Amazon Returns
When it comes to buying pallets of Amazon liquidation stock, you may be tempted to buy from a smaller scale company, but is this the right choice? The answer is no. Your best bet is to source Amazon returns from a larger scale liquidator such as Direct Liquidation.

Making The Most Of Your Returns Pallets
Once you’ve bought a pallet of Amazon returns, you’ll be eager to see what you’ve got, what you can sell immediately, what can be bundled together to attract customers and what needs a bit of repair work before it can be brought to market.
Sort and Bundle
Pallets usually come with a manifest, which tells you what a pallet contains. If your pallet is unsorted, you’ll need to go through everything, drawing up an inventory of the contents, what’s sellable, what’s junk, what can be repaired or refurbished and what can be kept for spares and repairs. You’ll also want to see if any of the items in the pallet can be bundled for sale together.
Refurbish And Repair
Seeing as many items are returned to Amazon by customers because they’re not working or are damaged in some fashion, you’ll no doubt end up with products in need of repair. When it comes to electrical items in particular, you’ll need to either carry out repairs or refurbishment yourself to get things back up to factory spec, or engage the services of a third party if it’s financially viable to do so.
Mostly applying to electronics and a few other categories, make sure your products come with all the original accessories or find replacement equivalents. This will help you increase the value of products for very little expense as replacement accessories can usually be sourced for very little online.
If the packaging on the products in your returns pallet is damaged, try to replace it with pristine original packaging. If you can’t track this down, replace the damaged packaging with brand new white or brown plain packaging. In this day and age, you’d be surprised how many customers value good quality packaging!
Inspect And Grade
Finally, make sure to inspect all your products thoroughly and, where appropriate, grade them. As a rule of thumb, gradable products such as electronics and toys can be graded into the following categories:
Grade A products are ‘as new’. They will have been returned to factory spec, will have all accessories or replacement accessories and will come in the original or good-quality replacement packaging. They will also come with all original documentation, barring the original manufacturer’s warranty.
Grade B products will be as above, with the difference that there will be superficial damage to the product such as light scratches or barely visible foxing.
Grade C will be as above, except that the product will have very visible damage such as noticeable scratching and heavy dents. This grade is the lowest priced grade, but will still attract budget-savvy customers and those who don’t care about damage, just as long as the product works.
