When your shopping for liquidation merchandise you want as many tools at your disposal as possible to make a well-informed purchasing decision. That’s why in addition to having all of our lots fully manifested we have a wide array of invaluable tools to help you select the lot that’s right for your business. Today let’s look at a few of the commonly overlooked tools that can make your buying decision a whole lot easier.
What’s the deal with this buy this item link?- At first glance, most just assume that the buy this item link embedded in our manifests is for retail purchases. Don’t worry it's not it’s simply a price comparison tool. Resellers can determine what the current market price is for that item on Amazon by clicking on that link. Pretty important to know what that item is selling for on the world’s largest online retailer don’t you think?
Don’t you have any pictures?- why yes we do! Stock images are available for many of the items within our lots. Once you have created an account and logged in, open a lot and scroll down to the manifest portion. You should now see the items in the UPC column highlighted in red. Place your mouse pointer on any of these UPC's and the image will now appear.
Wholesale lots filter’s advanced features- You have probably performed a search or two using the wholesale lot filter before, check off the condition, type, season, location, and category and hit that search button. But do you know about using that drop-down menu right below the filter? You can use this to search for lots by newest or oldest lots, lowest or highest unit price, lowest or highest percentage of retail, lowest or highest lot price and finally lowest or highest retail price. Think about how you can use these to speed up your search. Maybe your shopping for lots of men’s clothing with mostly high dollar items, then select highest unit price and add this option to your search. Or perhaps you are on a tight budget this month but need to get some merchandise in and selling so simply select lowest lot price to see the most economical options first.
Let’s sum it up with the summary table- buried beneath each manifest is another commonly overlooked tool that can make your decision to buy or not buy any given lot a whole lot easier. The summary table is just what it sounds like it tells you exactly how many of any given brand is in that lot as well as the size mix for that given brand. You know your top brands the ones your customers are always looking for just scroll down to that summary table and in an instant, you can determine if the lot is right for you by reviewing the summary table.
