Hi everybody, I have recently joined Salehoo and must say there is some excellent advice throught the forum for first timers to this business. I have also been checking out the suppliers and have been a little dissapointed with the quality and choice of product out there. Can anyone recommend sites with good quality brand name products even if they are returns or exchanged items? I couldnt sell tall blue glass elephants with a straight face :lol:
Thanks, Gerry

I would suggest the liquidation sites for variety, depending on what you are looking for ofcourse. Maybe Link hidden: Login to view could be a good place for you to start, smaller lots available and some refurb gear moves through there.

With most wholesale sources its hard to find good profitable prices. As stated above. Liquidations is more of what you should be considering. As you can get many branded products for very low prices. Link hidden: Login to view is a good start. But if you have some capital there are many other liquidators with even lower prices.

Thanks for the replies. I think im going to start off slowly with Liquidation .com, silly question time, if they sell 1 lot with 100 units at, a $100 bid and I win then my price is $100 right , I guess im thinking they sell by the lot and not by the unit. I also think I will focus on their CA warehouse as its real close to my area and i could pick it up myself and avoid shipping.
Thanks again guys!!
Gerry

Yep, you buy by the lot, not by the unit, unless there is only a single unit in the lot ofcourse..lol

To get a good idea of how much the lot will get you can research the prices of the past auctions for the products, and suppliers that you are interested in, that will give you a good idea of what amount you will neede to bid to have a chance.

Good location, picking up will put you even further ahead of the game!

Do they provide warranty for their products if I buy from them and sell on ebay or else where?

Just make sure you estimate shipping. And You will also have to make sure the lot has buyer pickup avaliable. Keep this in mind before bidding.

Only on new products. Make sure you know what lots you are buying. As with all liquidation lots you could be buying returns. And some returns have voided warranties.

Just one quick note besides the great info. above. TRY to bid on lots that have manifests. I just took a big hit on stuff that I probably couldn't give away. Pictures looked good, I understood about it being a sample of pictures and the fine print ' you may not recieve all items pictured but will be of same quality and like design'. What did I get, not one item pictured, and some garbage I wouldn't put in a child's boutique. Buyer be wary of lots with no manifests, you could open a box with who know's what in it!

Try Link hidden: Login to view for genuine branded apparel and accessories and Link hidden: Login to view for branded electronics and related items.

Good luck :)

Manifested loads are important, especially when you are new at this.

The big problem buying at a site like liquidation.com is that you have individual suppliers auctioning their stock, and you have to ask yourself where did they get it, and why are the auctioning it.

A lot of liquidation.com auctions are from people buying direct from liquidators themselves. What happens is they cheery pick the loads and pass off the crap via auction.

Cherry picking simply means that they buy in bulk, take out everything with serious value to sell themselves, and then dump what is left back through auction to get some cash flow.

Not saying you can't get good deals, because you can. You make sure you know what you are bidding on, because you can come unstuck really easily when buying like this.

never seen any liquidation site that warranties anything. Be sure to check the terms of service of any site before buying. Usually the only guarantee I ever saw was to payment and shipping of goods. And that is only that you will receive them.
