    I feel this article is misleading, 50% of the sites mentioned are manufacture websites. So these are limited to the manufacture’s items only. This isn’t giving the customer any choices or reals deals!

    Alex is a great writer but, on this blog she didn’t do the due diligence to find more about online retailers like the following:

    J&W Computer
    Mega Buy

    No need to write me back. Just trying to make a polite observation.

      Hi Rebecca,

      I’ve not heard of that company before, however I did a quick google search of the name and they came up straight away. You should be able to find them there.

    Hello Alex,
    I have 800+ Smartphones & Video Headsets that I need to liquidate quickly due to a business closing down (broken partnership). They retail for $195 but I’m willing to let them go for as cheap as $73-$95 each subject to volume. Do you know who I could approach with this partnership proposal?

      Hi Mark,

      Thanks for getting in touch.

      Your best bet would be to try an online auction/selling site like Grays Online or ebay to sell your stock to individual buyers.

      Hope that helps,
