Via Trading – Overstocks & Customer Returns

Comments Comments

Via Trading

Via Trading is a large volume purchaser of major department store and big box retailers overstocks and customer returned merchandise. www.viatrading.com has developed relationships over the years that allows them to obtain truckloads of merchandise that they are able to sell for as little as 5% of retail, pricing the product they sell well below wholesale pricing. They receive new product on a daily basis and have a fast turn of inventory so you need to check the site often as well as call them to see what is new. The good thing about buying from them is it allows you to get major brand name products at amazing prices.

Making money off of returned store merchandise can be hard work. However, if you are willing to put in the effort you can make good money. If you have a retail store, swap meet, flea market or sell on line with eBay or even have your or online store this can be a great source of wholesale merchandise. Keep in mind that most of the time, the products you are buying are in pallets and assorted without manifests and that an x% factor of product you will not be able to sell do to damage. You will never get the same mix of product unless you are buying a specific overstock item. This can make it a bit confusing as you will need to spend the time sorting and digging through the product to make sure you maximize your profits.

The website is easy to use and has products broken down by the following categories: Hard Goods, Soft Goods, Fashion, Fashion Accessories, Footwear, Tools, Cosmetics, Perfumes, HBA. They list product by pricing categories and even have an area of the site that shows merchandise that is appropriate for eBay. They also have live online help that can assist you directly from the website.

They welcome you to stop by the warehouse without an appointment and are open 68 hours a week. If you can’t see them at the warehouse or not able to buy online, you can visit them at one of the trade shows they attend. I just saw them at the ASD/AMD show and the booth was packed. That is always a good sign that you have something people can sell.

Helpful Hint: The key to buying pallets and truckloads of returned goods to make sure you get a manifest and to understand that when you buy returns x% of the product you will not be able to sell because the merchandise is either broken or damaged beyond use. It is always wise when dealing in closeouts to read and understand shipping and return policies as well as to contact the supplier to get a % factor of non sellable merchandise.
