Liquidation.com is an online auction marketplace that gives flea market vendors access to hundreds of top quality products that they might not otherwise be able to purchase. “We work with seven of the top ten U.S. retailers with their surplus and overstock goods, and we have products in more than 500 categories,” states Rob Caskey, VP of Marketing and Direct Sales. The company offers new, used, refurbished, returns, closeouts, and even salvage merchandise. Unlike many other suppliers, Liquidation.com allows vendors to buy product in a range of sizes, from the truckload down to the pallet. This flexibility allows them to test inventory without making a large commitment.
Branded products & exclusive relationships
Liquidation.com gives vendors access to branded merchandise they might not ordinarily get. Popular categories and products include HDTVs, Acer computers, apparel, and iPads. “If vendors wanted to get 100 returned iPads from a big box retailer, they couldn’t do that as a small business. We have relationships with these retailers and make that product available so that they are able to purchase it and resell or repurpose it,” Caskey explains. “Whereas some large sites offer goods manufactured in another country, we have a lot of the same products you would find in the biggest warehouse clubs. We have an exclusive relationship with Acer, for example. In addition, we just entered into a partnership with one of the largest warehouse clubs in the world for their entire northeast product. This includes a variety of apparel, general merchandise, electronics and appliances.”
