Starting a Resale Business: Bringing AML into Your Kitchen

AML_muffinsStarting a resale business is kind of like making muffins from scratch – it’s a lot harder than it looks, and it never hurts to have help from someone who has done it before. Luckily for you, AML has done it before (starting a business that is, although we do like muffins) and we’re just the company you want to have in your corner of the kitchen.

At AML, we know the stress and confusion that comes from starting your resale business. And since we have our own liquidation “test store” in one of our warehouses, we have a thorough understanding of the work that goes into merchandising, sorting and photography.

That’s why we do everything possible to lighten the load for you. From banishing your FESS (if you haven’t seen our blog on that, check it out now!) to ensuring that you receive quality products, AML is with you every step of the way. Never hesitate to contact one of our experienced representatives. We’re here for you!

What Exactly IS Dot Com Merchandise?

1Dot Com Merchandise is exactly what it sounds like – goods that were originally sold online! It’s returns, clearance and overstock merchandise from any number of online retailers. While Dot Com Merchandise is considered Return/Liquidation product, there are a few caveats to be aware of that are incredibly beneficial to businesses looking to purchase this merchandise.

Reasons for returns vary from item to item, and can be minor cosmetic reasons to more major function reasons. On most typical General Merchandise Returns loads, the reasons could be that the original customer ordered the wrong color or type, was dissatisfied with the product or the product’s cost, or the product had a missing function or was otherwise damaged or defective.  The consumer could have found a better deal elsewhere, purchased multiples as gifts or received the product as a gift. There could be a slew of other reasons that could all potentially lead to torn boxes and packaging, item damage or other problems that can prove to be a hassle for most liquidation buyers.

Because of the nature of returns on most online purchases, however, we find that most Dot Com Merchandise is returned for being the wrong type or color, or not being the right fit for the customer. This leads to low damage, clean-looking packaged returns and more functional merchandise on most of these loads overall.

While rewards can be high with normal customer returns, Dot Com Merchandise tends to be less risky. The perfect balance is often found in mixed loads of normal customer returns that can yield high margins for business owners that include a generous 20-30 percent mix of Dot Com Merchandise that is usually higher end and has a lower damage threshold.

Dot Com Merchandise also tends to include a better mix of larger items, which can help a mixed load of Customer Returns, creating more “Big Ticket” Merchandise that can attract customers and keep them coming back for more!

AML’s new General Merchandise Prime Loads are a terrific mix of Customer Returns, Clearance and Dot Com (or “E-Comm”) Merchandise that creates a great balance of product while offering consumers the chance to purchase all-in-one.

Fuel Based Shipping: A Non-Weighty Deal for Mom and Pop

blog_nonweightydealAt AML, we know how important family is, because we treat our customers like our own. AML works every day to give your business the best deal possible, so you can keep your family-run Mom and Pop store in the black and making money the way it should.

Weight-based shipping offered by other companies can add up on large purchases, but at AML, our shipping charge is based on fuel cost. Charging according to fuel based shipping means you save money on big purchases, especially compact ones.

That’s also why we’re introducing our 48 Pallet General Merchandise Loads. Because these loads can be stacked – and since shipping is not priced by weight – you pay less on shipping and are able to spend those extra dollars elsewhere. Let AML save you money and show you what your Mom and Pop business means to us.

Help! You’ve Fallen (from First Encounter Shock Syndrome) and Can’t Get Up!

blog_1Put down the Life Alert: First Encounter Shock Syndrome (FESS) will soon be a thing of the past. You’ve just purchased your first ever salvage/liquidation product – congratulations! Now follow these simple steps to avoid having your first ever salvage/liquidation freak out:

  • Take a step back. Letting yourself get overwhelmed is easy to do, but also easy to avoid. Sort through your purchase to get a handle on what exactly you have on your hands.
  • Group and process your merchandise. You’ll usually find that the load is not nearly as damaged or distressed as it first appeared to be.
  • Sell this new merchandise at a discount for your customer – but a profit for you!

Take a deep breath and dive right in. After processing and “working” the merchandise, we’re sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised with your load and just how much profit it can make you.

Bulk Loads: Are You in the Mood for a Mystery?

mystery bulk loadsOn a dark and stormy night in a far away warehouse, a large shipment was delivered. This shipment lacked a manifest and was much larger than the factory owner’s usual shipments. Was it a wild animal? Possibly a message from a competitor? No, it was much more than that. It was a bulk load.

Okay, maybe our alternative shipping option isn’t what you’d find in a spooky story, but it does carry a certain element of surprise.  While several of our load types come manifested and include information on wholesale values, retail values, item descriptions and UPC numbers, our bulk load option is a little different.

Bulk loads are typically sold at a lower price and feature a non-manifested mystery. This means that what you’re receiving will not include a list of items, retail values, etc. There is a little more labor required in processing, but the lighter price tag and additional inventory provide added opportunities for you to make money. Don’t think of AML Bulk Loads as gambles, think of them as mysterious surprises!

Preserving Your Privacy by Removing Labels: Cutting the Tags

AML brand preservationAt AML, preserving our customers’ privacy is our top priority. We understand that liquidating merchandise that didn’t sell or that was returned can be tricky business – you need to offload the product and turn some kind of profit, but you don’t want your customers stumbling upon your product somewhere you don’t control.

That’s why we take special effort to work with our clients to remove all labels and identifying marks off merchandise we buy from you. Sure – it’s in our contract, but we take great care to ensure our customers that we – and the people we sell to – are vigilant when it comes to removing their name from products we resell.

We cut the tags. We buff out the name. But we keep your brand intact.

That’s one of the biggest parts of our business – ensuring YOUR business keeps its hard-earned identity.

Still unsure about working with us? Our friendly sales representatives can answer any questions you may have about how we work. They’ll even show you their bright, shiny scissors.
