What alternatives are there to liquidating Amazon inventory?

Updated: Feb 17

The two ways to liquidate amazon inventory are: Amazon liquidation program and third party liquidators. In this blog we are going to explore third party liquidators.

Why would somebody use a FBA liquidation company?

Amazon is known to pay really really low rates when selling through the Amazon FBA liquidation program. They will pick a liquidation value between 5-20% of the average selling prices, and they will then deduct a referral fee and a processing fee from the liquidation value. This leaves Amazon FBA sellers looking for more, and turning to a FBA liquidation company. The seller will have their stock shipped directly to the FBA liquidation company from Amazon’s FBA warehouse, often getting more for their stock than Amazon’s liquidation program.

We have a free Amazon FBA Liquidation Calculator tool on our website, you can access that by clicking here.

As an example of what you can estimate Amazon will pay you, we ran an experiment with 1000 units of a product that has an average selling value of £15, and these were the results we got.

Unlike Amazon’s FBA liquidation program, FBA liquidation company will tell you exactly how much they’re willing to pay, whereas Amazon’s FBA program will leave you in the dark about how much they’ll actually pay you until after you have requested to liquidate the products.

What Is A FBA liquidation company?

A FBA liquidation company is just like Amazon’s liquidators, however they are not linked to Amazon. They will buy up goods in bulk, to then redistribute within their own distribution network.
