How to Buy and Flip Pallets of Walmart Merch

If you’re interested in starting your own business as an entrepreneur, buying and flipping merchandise from big box retailers is an excellent option. If you’ve always liked the idea of flipping houses but don’t have the capital to cashflow such an enterprise, buying merchandise and reselling it online is an equally good option with a much lower ceiling of access.

Thanks to the internet, it’s easier than ever to access return pallets as well as overstock merchandise. In many cases, you can actually bid on pallets of items, allowing you to stick to a budget that works for you. Walmart overstock is a great option with a wide variety of product categories to source inventory from, including popular niches such as home goods, electronics, and clothing. If you’re truly serious about getting into the flipping game, here’s what you need to know about getting started.

Choose a niche.

The first thing you should do when starting any new business venture is to pick a niche. Without knowing who your target demographic is and what you’re selling, you’ll be hard-pressed to make any concrete business decisions. Thankfully, sourcing your goods from a major retailer like Walmart can help you find high-quality items to sell online that fit the niche you choose, regardless of what sort of niche you’re interested in capitalizing on. It’s best to do a little research on a website like Direct Liquidation ahead of time to understand your options.

Build out your online storefront.

Once you’ve chosen your target niche, it is time to set up an online storefront to advertise and sell your wares. Some people choose to operate their storefront through a web platform like Squarespace or Wix, both of which are easy-to-use tools for building a website. You could pursue selling things on eBay or Amazon, too, since both of these online marketplaces are popular for a variety of retail purchases. You may also want to advertise on social media to drive more traffic to your business, regardless of which platform you’re using to make sales.

Stick to your budget.

As is the case in any business, having a budget will ensure that you have a solid financial ground to stand on. When you’re buying pallets online, particularly in an auction format, it’s crucial that you keep your costs low in order to maximize your profit margins. Keep in mind that unlike other online shopping experiences you may have had, shipping will be a major cost for having large pallets shipped to you. As a result, it’s a good idea to factor in some contingency money into your budget for getting your inventory without cutting into your profits.

Prioritize customer service from the get-go.

One major distinction between your company and other third-party sellers is being able to prioritize customer service. If someone receives a damaged good or needs to make a return, be sure that you’re willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and assist them with kindness. This will help boost positive word-of-mouth about your fledgling business.

In order to maintain positive customer service, you may want to invest in call center quality assurance software. A Bright Pattern platform can help you perform these sorts of tasks more efficiently with features that make it easier to interact with customers through a variety of communication channels, including SMS messaging, email, social media, and phone calls. Plus, with artificial intelligence and text-to-speech analysis at the heart of some of this service’s most powerful tools, you’ll be able to manage your business’ growth as it scales up without having to put any ten-hour days replying to customer requests.

Tips to help you navigate the offer:

  • Select the trial offer on the left side of your screen after you click the link in the post
  • Add the trial kit to your cart for $0 ($3 shipping)
  • It will ask you to select a subscription. You will NOT pay for the extra blades today.
  • It will then ask you your shaving frequency.
  • I chose shave once a day. And it said mine will ship every 5 months but my first subscription payment will not be due until July 14th.
  • It will then try to upsale you some additional items which you can decline.
  • AFTER you receive your trial offer you can cancel your subscription IF you want to and never have to pay anything again. But if you like it, and I think you will, you can continue on with the subscription.

Thinking About Self-Publishing? Read This

Did I ever tell you that one of my brothers wrote a book? I mean, I think I did, in a blog post about it a while back. It was something he had wanted to do for a long time and he finally did it. When it first became available to buy his book was in the top 200 on Amazon..I think it was back then. Which, when you consider all the books on Amazon that’s not too bad. Want to know something else? He self-published his book.

My brother wrote Night of the Dancing Puppets which is a horror genre. Some people say it fits in with the popular game “Five Nights At Freddy’s” I’ve never played that game or saw the movie so I can’t personally speak on that. What I do know is that it was a constant up and down adrenaline rush. My brother has lived in Florida for many years and you get a sense that the book takes place in Florida.

This book is not recommended for children as it is a horror book and some profanity is used in the book. To self-publish, he went through a site called but I’m sure there are other sources as well. There are also publishing companies that can help with reviewing, printing, publishing, etc but of course there is more cost involved with that. I think if I decided I wanted to write a book someday I’d go the self-publishing route too.

Being that my brother had self-published this book and never wrote a book before, I thought this was a pretty good start. I know he was talking about doing a sequel to the book but I don’t know where he is on the process of that. I know it can take a long time until a book is finally finished and ready for shelves.

You may be shocked to know some pretty famous authors have self-published at some point or another like Mark Twain. Did you know John Grisham and Tom Clancy started off self-publishing? This an interesting piece of information from an article on the huffpost website:

Tom Clancy’s first novel, The Hunt for Red October was acquired by the Naval Institute Press in Annapolis, Md., when an editor there, Deborah Grosvenor, became enthralled by Clancy’s novel, convinced she had a potential bestseller in her hands.

Sam Haskell also talks about self-publishing books. He wrote the book Promises I Made My Mother. Sam Haskell has an impressive resume including being an Emmy nominated producer.

So in the end, I guess what I’m trying to say is that, self-publishing can be done. If you checked out any of the links in this post then there is hope for new authors with big dreams and small budgets
