Hello Salehoo members!

My name is Tim with a company called Titan Liquidation, and you may have recently seen a few guides we have written about the liquidation industry. It has been made apparent to us over the last few weeks by member inquires that Salehoo has many international members who are looking for great authentic designer products. Many members are hesitant to order liquidation products due to the more expensive shipping required to send products overseas, but I am writing this today to explain that international members will not only be receiving a great deal, but possibly an even better value than domestic customers within the U.S!

Within the last 2 months our international buyers have made up 40% of our business! This is something we did not predict, but when listening to customer feedback it makes perfect sense why. I will explain below why this is the case, and it is due to 2 main reasons.

The first reason is the value of U.S goods overseas (Canada, Mexico, Europe, Middle East, Australia, Asia). A designer product may sell for 50-60% of retail here in the U.S through Ebay, or possibly more in a brick and mortar store. Now take these same products and present them to overseas buyers. This same product may sell for 70-80% of retail. Buyers are just as interested in U.S designer products as U.S citizens are, but the supply is only a fraction of what is available to U.S customers. The same thing happens in the U.S where we import cars such as Audi, Ferarri, and other European brands that sell for a premium here because they are not as readily available as in the host country where they are made.

The second reason is the value of the U.S dollar. Recently the economy within the U.S has been through hard times, and as a result the dollar has weakened in comparison to the currency of other countries. Now this is a bad thing for us U.S citizens who import products or have currency related investments. This is however, a great thing for anyone importing U.S products and converting their currency to pay in USD. One buyer in Australia who purchased products from the U.S four years ago said he is getting products for 30% less now through us than they costed four years ago after the conversion from the Australian dollar is made to pay in U.S dollars. For an example please see the change in currencies below.

2006 AUD worth .72 per $1.00 USD ---- Currently AUD worth $1.02 per $1.00 USD
2006 CAD worth .82 per $1.00 USD Currently CAD worth $.98 per $1.00 USD

These are just a few examples, but when looking further, the USD has remained on par or weakened over the last 5 years against most currencies. Some are significant like Australia who are receiving U.S products nearly 30% cheaper than only 4 years ago!!

To finish this post off, I would also like to let Salehoo members know that we have been told by our customers that we are one of the very few Liquidation companies in the U.S that will ship internationally. We are very efficient at shipping internationally and have a member on staff who is an expert in international logistics. To this day have never had an issue with customs or duties within Europe, Asia, Canada, Mexico and Australia. In fact, we usually have our products pass through customs 2-3 days AHEAD of schedule with no duties. I hope this guide has shown you that liquidation buying can be extremely profitable even for overseas members!

Hello,

Do you mean drop shipping individual products? If that is the case then unfortunately we do not.


However, if you were selling liquidation lots to customers we could definitely drop ship/blind ship the lots to your customers.

Have you considered looking at building a Drop Shipping model based around offering individual items Tim. Of course it's something both you and myself have talked about in the past and I'm more convinced than ever it would be a fantastic supply avenue for clients, especially international clients.

Of course we've also been involved in the industry and know it's not an easy type of service to deliver from several view points, just wondering if it's something that is on the radar for future development at this point?

From a P.O.D stand point, what a great marketing tool for the business if you could develop something like that, and of course from a clients stand point, what a unique supply avenue to use.

Just a thought : )

Hi Marc,

It definitely has been a thought as we do get a pretty high volume of requests for such a service. It will definitely take some further planning though because any service we offer our clients, we want to be very successful for them. As it stands right now, although it requires little to no capital, many drop shipping companies do not allow for success for members who sell online. Prices are too close to retail, and members try selling those products on a wholesale market such as Ebay and usually end up losing money and giving up in the end.

Another issue is that a liquidation lot of say 1,000 pieces may have 500 different pieces of brands/styles/colors in a certain category such as clothing for example. If they were then added to a website we would possibly have multiple people attempting to sell only the most popular pieces, and let’s say for an example 8 people simultaneously selling something, all sell, but then we only have 4 available in that certain style/brand with 8 paying customers. This is another issue and we would need to look into it further because as I stated before, it has to be something that would be successful for our clients as our liquidation lot currently have been :)

Thanks for the input though Marc and we will definitely take a look at and all business models that our customers would prefer!

Really good news that is on the radar Tim. There are of course issues that need to be resolved in order to provide a quality service for clients, but if you guys can develop a model such as we are talking about, then that would be great news for everyone, both Titan and it's clients.

Looking forward to hearing more along those lines as things progress mate.

Aldira,

Sounds great, I will add you to our contact list. Also please note that a lot of the different stock we offer isn't even on our website. We have been so busy, products have been going out before we even have time to add them to our website. I guess that is a good problem to have :)

Our most used email is sales@titanliquidation.com If you address it to "Tim" it will be passed along to me. Please contact me when you are ready to discuss your options and I can let you know about all of the great products we carry! I look forward to hearing back from you.
