BULQ offers wholesale goods with draft listings on eBay.com
One of the cutest features is that inventory will come with automated draft listing creation making this almost a plug and play solution for buying and reselling stock. All would be sellers need to do is to review the listing for accuracy and add in product photos, description, some item specifics, shipping, price.
Together, eBay and Optoroy enable retailers to sell returned and excess inventory seamlessly on eBay, and in turn provide an influx of high-demand wholesale inventory for eBay sellers. The two companies leveraged their respective proprietary technologies to make sourcing and reselling on eBay faster and more seamless for sellers, thus accelerating the pace of resale.
Optoro is a retail returns tech company that manages & resells returns for retailers like Best Buy, Target, IKEA, American Eagle. They are partnering to resell returned goods on eBay to sellers. Resale is up and at the same time many retailers are flush with excess inventory from the pandemic.
Through BULQ on eBay, sellers can seamlessly purchase and resell liquidation lots on the eBay marketplace that include returned and excess merchandise from some of the largest and best-known brands in the industry. Once the lot is purchased, this first-of-its-kind solution allows sellers to efficiently pull product information from the lots and create individual listings to edit, review and publish directly to their eBay store. The collaboration helps make the resale of sought-after merchandise from leading retail brands more convenient and accessible for sellers looking to reach eBay’s millions of buyers.
“We created BULQ to solve an inventory problem for retailers and the environment by connecting their returned and excess goods to the many micro entrepreneurs looking to make a better living as resellers. As a result of store closures during the pandemic and record ecommerce growth, many retailers are now overloaded with such inventory and need even better outlets. We are excited to partner with eBay to create this more powerful joint BULQ offering that will both provide improved liquidity to the retail industry while also supplying quality inventory to the many individuals looking for ways to make ends meet in the gig economy during these difficult times.”
