I am new here and this is my first post and I hope it's ok to post this here. I am really in high hopes that I can get some advice from Buyers, sellers or Salehoo staff. I am not a wholesale or large quantity seller and do not plan to be but I have acquired new bulk items that I need to sell as a lot or multiple lots and would like information on what my best approach is to do this. I guess describing what I have would be helpful. First Items are 20,000 pieces, 8in. x 8in x 2in PVC Vinyl zipper makeup type bags clear with orange trim and clear with light blue trim. Second items are 100,000 pieces, 3in x 3in x 3in gift/small item boxes in red, white & blue and black, white & blue that have and attached lid. These look similar to the Christmas boxes that a ball tree ornament comes in at a $1.00 Store but could be used for many things. The vinyl zipper bags could be used for many things other than makeup also. These are all new and as you can see there is quite a quantity to try and sell individually or in small lots and are more for a business to use as supplies.
If anyone can offer me advice on how to proceed, I would appreciate it very much. Have a great day and thank you.

Welcome to SaleHoo! :) As you have mentioned that you are not a wholesale supplier for these items, being listed to sell as a supplier at SaleHoo is not among the options you can take. I'd say they can be purchased in such bulk quantity only by those who will have a use for these products, so listing them at eBay can also give you chances - since most of these buyers will go to eBay to search. But I believe the best step is to actively approach companies that will be needing them - you can talk to them and "create" the need for these items by letting them know these vinyl bags are ideal for gift sets and they can be used to package travel retail products to sell! You can also find a way to have them imprint their logo for instant brand building. :)

Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on and if you need further help.

Hello there Speedpick6 And Irene from the Salehoo Staff

I wanted to just say that I am new here as well and Am looking for incredible deals, I am doing Ebay selling and I just wanted to mention to Speedpick that Maybe in the future I will be needing certain accessories both to help sell my products as well as sell them individually for a profit, now that being said, Speedpick if you would like to get rid of a bunch of your items send me all the pictures of the stuff you have, I will consider buying, but I cannot guarantee until I see some detailed quality pictures and see the amounts that you want to sell.

Thanks hope to hear from ya!
