Tonight I spent time, possibly too much time, watching two programs on purchasing Amazon returns by the pallet.
One couple purchased a pallet of surprise boxes. They unbox and then sell the items either on FaceBook marketing or the local area platforms. They state they give their profits to a random commenter on their channel. They actually gave away $100 + dollars at the end of the show. They appear to do it for fun.
The next couple purchases these pallets from a liquidation place and they sell the items on Market Place, eBay and they have a flea market stall where they sell things of lesser value. They do this to earn a living in order to stay home with their child.
As I watched both programs, I now know what happens to my Amazon returns. Both couples stated that it is too costly for Amazon to re-shelf an item so they just sell it off in bulk.
I bought a children’s book which did not meet my expectations. I wanted to return it. Amazon told me to keep it. I ended up recycling it by putting it in a box with other books to donate for a fundraiser. Actually, this also happened with a kaftan I ordered for someone. They didn’t like the colour and the seller told me to keep it. Rather the person I ordered it for ended up keeping it. I believe she gifted it to someone.
Now when I look at either my local VarageSale or other purchasing platforms, I will have a new view of some of the items for sale. Nieve me always thought the items were from their personal life
Question of the day, have you returned something to Amazon and were told to keep it?
