Retailers have to deal with excess and returned inventory somehow. There’s only so much warehouse space to accommodate unsold or returned merchandise—not to mention damaged and defective inventory. In order to make way for new inventory, retailers are choosing to offload these goods via liquidation sales.
Liquidation sales present an opportunity to resellers and store owners looking for discounted inventory. We explain how liquidation sales work and how buyers can participate online below.
Most excess inventory comes from customer returns. And retailers typically cannot re-stock and sell returned merchandise in their stores. In fact, $761 billion worth of merchandise was returned to retailers in 2021. eCommerce returns account for roughly 20.8% of returns made—that’s almost a third of all returns! A percentage of returned merchandise is because the shopper received the wrong item, or the goods were damaged or defective. Needless to say, many of these items are sold at a huge loss to a few large liquidators. These liquidators, in turn, resell the inventory to small resellers, other liquidators, and wholesalers.
But rather than selling to a few liquidators who go on to resell that inventory to other buyers at a markup, many retailers are choosing a different option. Retailers like Walmart, The Home Depot, Target, and Macy’s use B-Stock’s online auction platform to help them build and manage their own private auction marketplaces. This allows them to sell directly to the different types of liquidation business buyers themselves through B-Stock. This provides liquidation buyers with direct access to retailers and access to highly discounted inventory that they previously could not buy or have access to. The inventory is usually listed at a fraction of the MSRP, with listings worth thousands in value starting at only $1 or $100.
Many retailers now include online liquidation sales as part of their reverse logistics strategies. Thus allowing buyers to browse online liquidation auctions and bid on the inventory and lot sizes that fit their needs.View Marketplaces
