Product Condition & Categories
Are the items you sell brand new?
We currently deal with different types of liquidation and closeout programs. From customer returns, shelf pulled items and case packed merchandise.
Customer returns: Items that have been previously purchased in stores and were returned by the customer. These items may be damaged, defective or have nothing wrong at all with them. Please keep in mind that we are unable to guarantee the condition of these type of items. We like to be as upfront as possible with our customers but we are unable to open every single item and check them. These items may also come with store pricing, discount and return stickers. If these are consumable products such as makeup, skin care and hair care their is a possibility of them being expired.
Shelf Pulls: Unlike customer returns shelf pulled items have never been purchased. These items generally get liquidated because of numerous reasons; Packaging has changed, seasonal items, getting close to their expiration date, etc. These items are usually in better condition than returns, though they still may have retail & discount stickers. The packaging may be a little dinged and dented due to the way they are stored once they are cleared off of store shelves and may even be expired.
Case Packs: Products in this category have never been on store shelves before. Can usually be considered overstock items which never left retailers warehouse or distribution center. These items are 100% brand new but there is still a possibility that they are short dated or even expired.
Are there any risks when purchasing these items?
There is always a risk when purchasing liquidated merchandise. Especially depending on where you are purchasing them from. Some companies have been known to pass off customer returns as shelf pulled items or totally mislead customers completely with what they are selling them. Make sure you educate yourself completely before purchasing customer returns.
A lot of customers have the misconception that they will double or triple their money every time. Which may not always be the case. The majority of experienced buyers purchase multiple pallets at once to minimize their risk. Let’s say you purchase 6 pallets, there is a possibility that 1 or 2 pallets may not be that profitable, but the remaining pallets will make up for the bad ones.
Please keep in mind that due to the large number of liquidators in the US today it is very important to only deal with reputable companies. Just because a company has a website does not necessarily make them reputable nor does it guarantee that they actually have a physical location or own their goods. Make sure that allow you to visit their facilities without requiring an appointment, so you can inspect your items.
Discount Wholesalers Inc. prides itself as being the most honest liquidator in the business. We would rather be 100% upfront with our customers and have them not buy from us, than to mislead just for the sake of closing a deal. The margins we work with are so low that we require repeat business to stay profitable. We need our customers to be successful and profitable so we can be.
Feel free to contact one of our sales representatives for detailed pictures or videos of the items you are interested in purchasing. We are more than happy to schedule a video call so you can see the items we have available. If you see something you like we will send you that exact item.
Can I visit you guys in person and inspect items before I purchase them?
Yes of course! We love when customers visit us in person. Feel free to stop by and pick out the items that you want to purchase. Visit our contact page for our address and business hours.
Do you guys do dropshipping?
We currently do not offer dropshipping as an option. What you can do is provide us with shipping labels and we will be more than happy to ship your order to your customer using them. We will make sure not to include any of our company information.
Are you able to provide us with an inventory list with UPC’s?
Due to the type of inventory we carry it is impossible to have UPC codes for every item. We do manage a list of certain items (mainly case packed items) that we have UPC codes for. Please request this list by emailing Sales@Discountwholesalersinc.com
Please keep in mind that we are not manufacturers nor do we require you to setup an account with us. We receive a lot of emails from Amazon sellers requesting inventory lists with UPC’s and ASIN’s.
What are your hours of operation?
We are open Monday-Friday from 9am to 5pm EST. Feel free to stop by during business hours. Please note that for us to fulfill your order the same day we require that you arrive at our facility by 3:30pm.
