Customer Returns refers to items which were once sold, then returned by the customer for varying conditions. It is important to note that stores have varying individual return policies as well as liquidation policies which affect the condition of products you may see in various product listings. Common characteristics of Customer Returns include, defective, out of box, display items, damaged packaging, out of season, discontinued, defaced bar-codes, and discontinued items.
New Overstocks are items that were never for sale in a retail environment. Often referred to as Closeouts, these goods can originate from retailers, importers, manufacturers or distributors who are closing down, or simply have discontinued or excess goods that they need to liquidate. Items are typically in brand-new condition, and don’t require additional labels or tags prior to being sold.
Shelf pulls are items which have been displayed within a retail environment but have been pulled from shelves to then be liquidated. Generally shelf pulls are from excess inventory that stores cannot sell. Although the condition of these products are not new, they should require less work in the form of testing and repairing, but may require cleaning or removing test and price tags before reselling. Common characteristics of shelf pulls include discontinued goods, seasonal goods, open box, and expired goods.
