B-Stock Solutions' Howard Rosenberg Discusses Product-Sourcing

Tue Apr 20 2010 13:56:30
A certain segment of online sellers look to the liquidation space to source inventory. Does it make sense for small sellers to look to liquidation marketplaces for inventory they can resell, and what should they know before hitting the buy-now button on overstock lots? B-Stock Solutions founder Howard Rosenberg joins AuctionBytes with answers to these questions. Howard founded B-Stock Solutions after leaving eBay, where he launched a unit that built and hosted private-label marketplaces. His company has helped enterprise clients liquidate nearly $1 billion worth of excess, overstock, returned and end-of-life inventory. Howard discusses some of the trends in the liquidation space and reveals how online retailers can buy returns from Wal-Mart and Macy's through his company's websites. Run time: 19:51
