With such a premium put on time in the overstock business, it was only a matter of time before smart merchants began to move their surplus online. Now that a few top companies have created efficient online auction sites, merchants and sellers can do business in surplus online, in a new, faster way. After all, when you need to move old product to make room for the new, or to buy overstock at a great price right now, you don't have time to do business the old way.

The best online auction sites are well-organized and easy to use, so you don't have to waste time with red tape or long searches. They're also open 24 hours a day, so you don't have to be. Best of all, they consolidate a huge variety of surplus into a virtual warehouse the size of your computer screen.

Moving Surplus Online

One of the longest-standing difficulties in this business has been pricing product to move without pricing it to lose. By employing the tried-and-tested online auction model, the best companies allow competing buyers to effectively set the price. When they do, prices automatically rise towards the highest the market can bear, while still giving them a good deal.

There's no need to spend hours on the phone making connections one at a time. Not when you can make a limitless number of connections at once, without even trying! It's a brave new world, and wholesale surplus has just become a big part of it.
