Richelle has provided a link there with some info regarding liquidation.com, but the forum has quite a bit written about them that I'm sure you would find helpful if you are looking at them as a sourcing avenue.

liquidation.com is a good source for making quick bucks on ebay & amazon. You need big capital to start though. Check the retail price on ebay and amazon before starting any bid - check for shipping cost and condition of items. DO NOT GO BY RETAIL VALUE.

I have purchased from Liquidation.com and they are ligitimate and ship very fast. Their products are as described. Be careful about movies because they are not all new and sealed. Their shipping charges are very high-you can check as you go. To do your own shipping is a real pain.

I've sold and purchased there. On the purchase, I got a lot of 10 digital cameras (customer returns), all working, but missing batteries, memory cards and some chargers. After doing my research, I rounded up all the missing parts and made some money on e-bay. So do your research before purchasing...and GOOD LUCK!

all hot consumer electronics are on there. If you do your research and do your math - you could make really nice profit with it. Check for warehouse location, you might be next to one - THIS IS BIG SAVE on large quanlity or big item like TV's. I've been picking up my auction in the last 2 months.

Check out a company called Farah Trading, they deal in all sorts of liquidated consumer electronics, and could be a good avenue for you to explore.

Hi dx, haven't personally dealt with them, but I do know some in the industry that have, and what you are experiencing with their customer service seems pretty well on par from what I hear.

Those that have dealt with them are usually quite happy with the deal they secured, but always complain about the lack of customer service, so not quite sure what is going there.

May well be worth making a quick phone call and getting them to email you so you can then just piggy back replies to their email.

Liquidation.com has been around quite a while, and is a very well used site for sellers to source their stock. Things you have to watch out for with the site is that each seller is independent, and there are good and bad ones, so always learn as much about the seller as you can before bidding.

The other key issue with them is shipping fees, completely insane in my opinion, but if you are local you can pick-up and save your coin.

: )

I thought liquidation.com was mostly regulated by the administrators of the site? The don't control or ensure the safety of the transactions? FUDJJ, there seems to be some missing details. Please provide some more insight?

As well, tell me what you think about this site... Link hidden: Login to view, and the most famous site, known as World Wide Brands and there insanely priced $299.99 or $399.99 dollar membership? Link hidden: Login to view and the review site.... Link hidden: Login to view.

I am very eager to deal with my business, but need legitimacy first.

Well my comment for World Wide Brands would be a waste of money, but you have to bare in mind that they are essentially in competition to us here, so although I stand behind my opinion, perhaps others without a perceived agenda may be better to advise you on World Wide Brands.

Essentially World Wide Brands is a wholesale product resourcing directory just as SaleHoo is, however SaleHoo is far cheaper, better suppliers, much better forum where members openly express ideas and advice and far better customer support.

That's my opinion of course : )

The Police Auctions site is one that I have not been aware of. I always recommend auctions as great places to source products, but not online auctions so much because of the heavy traffic.

What tends to happen with online auction sites is that big numbers bidding usually drive the price up if anything. On site auction house are where you can unearth some real gems, and the fewer in number that attend, the better your chances of snaggling a bargain!

Regarding Liquidation.com, the sellers are independent and as I said, you will get some really up front sellers, but you also get the ones that play loose with the truth. Plenty will tell you they did good on some lots, and plenty will tell you to stay away.

It's a play it by ear situation in my opinion, not guaranteed of getting a good deal, but in with a realistic chance if you do your research.

You will actually find a lot of sellers on liquidation.com are buying direct from liquidators and breaking the loads down to sell there tom resellers. I used to deal in the liquidated market, and I had several customers buying large amounts of cosmetics mostly, then they would break those pallets into small 250 piece cartons, and aim them at resellers to push on sites such as ebay and so on.

So with that in mind, and depending on what sort of products you are interested in, I would suggest that you also perhaps consider looking at the source, liquidators themselves.

If you can't afford to buy in serious volume, then the deals you will get would most likely rival those that you will find on liquidation.com anyway.

Hello, hi is anyone here??????? So, i want to start purchasing by the mass load in a couple weeks or so from this company, Liquidation.com, and i am in Toronto. All of there warehouses seem to be located in the USA, the closes location being washington for me. Now, what is this so called ' $150 documentation fee ' that apparently must be applied, according to the warehouse staff, to all internationally shipped items? Like, come onnnn! Is this for real? Plus, $1.40 for 1 - 500 lbs of shipped product? Is this some sort of joke?

Has anyone outside of the USA ever had to pay this fee, or experinced someone else paying it?

I talked to the UPS branch in the USA, and In Canada Near the washington and Niagara boarders and both, both, have not heard of such a charge.

Am i missing something here?

Can anyone help me?


I mean i would possibly drive to washington or buffalo, perhaps Niagara to pick up, but that fee simply is just Ludicrous.

Can anyone perhaps share there opinions, or do some research to find out what the scoop is?


Thank ya'll sooo much.

Hi SB, Liquidation.com is well known for their shipping and admin fees that most consider extreme, but it's their business and they can set what ever fees they want.

It's up to buyers and sellers that use their platform to decide whether or not the cost is worth it to them.

It's really good you did your home work on their prices, because I've seen a lot jump in thinking they got a great deal on an auction lot, only to be screwed over by the admin and shipping fees they got hit with afterwards, can be a real trap if your not looking!

Of course they don't just get the buyers at the time of a sale, the also take their litre of blood from the sellers as well, the don't miss anyone!

Thank you all for you remarks. However, i would still like to know why they charge a $150 documentation fee? Why do they lie? The post offices (UPS Canada, and UPS USA) have ever heard of such a fee.

Can someone please tell me this?


Thank you

I have. For me, everything I ordered was as advertised minus a few oversights that a good marketing job could handle.

I would recommend them to anyone. Make sure you have decent coin saved up. You need to be prepared to bid and prepared to move.

Bidders on their are hawks but if you are aware, it makes eying the site all worth it.

SB, the fee they charge is an admin fee, has nothing to do with the postal services. They as a business can set what ever admin fee they choose, it's then up to the customer whether or not they wish to pay it and do business with them.

Many think it is extreme, but it's their right to set their own pricing.

I won't ever buy with this site again. I bought some purses and had a few disputes..spent over 900.00 on the lot and my refund was less than 35.00. I'll be lucky to break even with the 2-3 big ticket purses I did get in the lot. The refund wouldn't even touch what is spent on shipping the boxes. Shipping costs a lot here..generally at least 45.00...and up.....none the less..learned a HUGE lesson at a GREAT cost and will NEVER EVER buy from them again. It's hit or miss and you are dealing with MANY sellers on the site that just use liquidation as a selling platform but one bad experience is one to many for me and my bank account. Be very careful if you choose to go with them.

I have never purchased anything yet, but I just started selling on that site. I have heard good things about liquidation.com and decided it would be a great place to supplement my sales. I carry several thousand items and it is a great place to sell my items that I have too many of. Right now I have too much money tied up in inventory and I need to have more ways to go through my supply quicker.

Liquidation.com also keeps tabs on how your items are selling and will put that information for everyone to see in the listings, to make sure you are a trusted seller.

I think it is a great platform for buying and selling inventory.
