When you partner with B-Stock on a B2B liquidation solution, you can solve many problems at once: reduce warehouse space, increase pricing on your liquidation inventory, and keep supply chains moving. Before that can happen though, there are a few steps to getting your private marketplace up and running.
B-Stock’s B2B liquidation marketplace platform
Since launching 10 years ago, B-Stock’s online marketplace platform (think eBay but for bulk items sold to professional business buyers) has become the world’s leading marketplace destination for business buyers sourcing inventory to resell to end-users online as well as in discount, clearance, and mom & pop general stores. For major retailers, this enables a direct sales channel to auction overstock, returned, and used inventory to a large buyer base via a branded, private online marketplace. Selling this way—via a competitive online auction platform—enables higher pricing and a more consistent sales cycle revenue stream versus selling to local liquidators.
