Back in the day, most retailers sourced stock from local wholesale suppliers. This was all fine and dandy because local wholesalers could offer their customers low prices, meaning retailers were able to still make a profit after adding their markup on the wholesale merchandise they bought this way. However, a recent trend has emerged that has upset the applecart of this retailer-wholesaler relationship.
In recent years, wholesale prices have nudged ever closer to retail prices, and that means one thing – higher wholesale prices mean less profit for retailers. Not being able to make a return on the goods they buy wholesale means one thing for retailers: financial disaster.
So, what’s the solution to this sticky problem? How do you stop your budding retail business from being fatally holed below the waterline before the ship has even left port, so to speak? Luckily, there is a solution. Instead of locally sourcing from wholesalers, you should look what an online liquidation marketplace has to offer instead. Buying merchandise wholesale from a liquidator might well be just what your budding new business needs.
An online liquidation marketplace is an internet sales platform operated by a top-tier liquidation specialist such as Direct Liquidation. Liquidators work directly with some of the biggest names in retail in the United States, providing them with an online environment through which the retailers can sell their unwanted customer returns through to businesses at vastly reduced prices.
Every year, retailers such as Walmart, Lowe’s and Target take back thousands and thousands of products for a wide variety of reasons. Some items simply don’t work; some items have superficial damage to either the box or the product or both; some have visible damage to the product, box or both, and some products are brought back simply because a customer has changed his or her mind about their purchase. Despite this last category containing what amounts to brand new merchandise, the products can no longer be classed as new, and are therefore categorized as returned.

All of this returned merchandise presents big-name retailers with a significant logistical headache. No longer classed as new product despite oftentimes being exactly that, this type of merchandise takes up valuable warehouse shelf space that should be housing new product. The big-name retailers are not resellers, discounters or repair stores, so this merchandise needs to be disposed of as speedily as possible, even if that does involve the retailer taking a considerable hit on the price they can get for it. So, what do they do? They turn to top-tier liquidators such as Direct Liquidation.
Liquidators provide big-name retailers with online platforms through which retailers can buy pallets and truckloads of all the closeouts, customers returns and overstock they need. And because the retailers are willing to take that aforementioned hit on the price they can expect to get for this type of merchandise, you’ll find it available on a liquidator’s site for considerably less than you’ll find it elsewhere.
If you were to choose Direct Liquidation as your online liquidated stock supplier, you’ll find you’re dealing with a company who has a business relationship with one of the biggest retailers on the planet – Amazon.
Amazon trusts Direct Liquidation to handle its customer returns, which means you’ll find a reliable supply of pallets of Amazon returns available to buy on Direct Liquidation online liquidation sales platform. Whatever you’re on the lookout for, you’ll most likely find what you need on Direct Liquidation’s site.

And because you’re dealing with Amazon, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing you won’t be buying cheap knock-offs when you buy wholesale through Direct Liquidation’s online sales platform. Both Amazon and Direct Liquidation have reputations they fiercely protect. What you see is what you get when you browse the lots on Direct Liquidation’s Amazon page, and what you get is top-quality stock in a variety of conditions sold for a price that’ll make your budding new retail business a decent staring profit.
Buying Amazon liquidated stock from Direct Liquidation auctions couldn’t be simpler. Once you’ve signed up for an account using a valid reseller’s license, you’ll be able to bid on a pallet of Amazon customer returns once each lot goes live. You can set up an email notification which will alert you when each lot is about to go under the hammer, and once it does, you can start bidding. Be careful not to go over your maximum spending limit – the last thing your new business needs is to start out with stock you’ve bought for too much.
If you’re the successful bidder, it’s just a matter of arranging shipping, inspecting and pricing your goods when they arrive and then selling the merchandise you buy wholesale through Direct Liquidation’s site at range of enticing prices that will attract the largest numbers of new customers and wake the competition up to the fact there’s a new kid on the block … and this one means business.
