Here are few things I read about buyersâ€™ mistakes, some are really stupid ones.
My favorite, the guy who search on Google for wholesale iPods, find one in Honk Kong. Buys 100 units at 1/3rd of the price free shipping and wires $5000 to a bank in Malaysia. Then goes to a forum I belong to asking how long it will take to get the shipment. Guess what... Iâ€™m not even sure he got the message.
Another good one, the lady who purchase a pallet of 100 Laptops for $3500 + fee + shipping. She didnâ€™t see the â€˜Salvageâ€™ mention... and is now complaining that Liquidation.com ripped her off and she got a pallet of junk.
This one is not bad either, the guy who purchase a 40â€™ container of electronic goods. Took a second mortgage to pay for it and just forgot about duties... 6 months later when he could afford to pay for tax and have the container released. He got a nice 40â€™ container full of wet, moldy electronic junk. Ho my, over $150,000 wasted.
It can be very difficult to purchase. I got ripped off once with a Chinese supplier. I got 3 samples, very nice. I ordered 50 units (MOQ) and got 50 lower quality goods. Itâ€™s like you get a real iPod as a sample. So you go for it and buy 50 and get iPod type - not the same value but you paid for iPods... Thatâ€™s why I never buy more than 50 units at the time unless I have a VERY strong relationship with the seller.
