Why Buy ready goods stock?
In this era of mass production and mass marketing, ready goods stock has become increasingly common. Most ready goods stock – over 80% in fact – is in excellent condition: brand new, untouched and authentic. These items become stock for various reasons: overproduction, mismatching the original order, delivery issues, unforeseen bankruptcies, credit issues and more.
prices are always sharp and attractive
Speed to market
the goods are ready and available
by buying ready goods you reduce the need for new production
What is the problem?
Our research has shown that there is a gap between the customer intent to buy the product, seeing it as an opportunity and actually closing the transaction. We found the main reason for this is the uncertainty in the outcome, the fear in the back of the buyers’ mind that what you see is not what you get. The most common questions focus on the quality of the items – Why is this item in stock? Is it defective in some way? Are the sleeves too short, the fabric too coarse? And why is it so cheap? – and who are we buying from. In short, despite the attractive prices, the overarching problem is trust. Many retailers and wholesalers hesitate to buy stock, feeling that the risk is bigger than the reward.
StockStories.com was born to allow clothing retailers and importers to buy ready-made goods that are stuck in factories for reasons that are not quality (Such as late delivery) in an easy and safe way. For example, Zara ordered 10,000 pieces of knitted sweater from factory X, the factory was late on delivery and Zara canceled the order. Now the factory is stuck with the merchandise with limited capacity to sell the goods. That is where StockStories comes into the picture, with on the ground quality control teams that are carefully checking the goods, and after it passes the QC, changing the labels, adding barcodes and turning the merchandise to your own brand with a cost lower by approximately 30% than production cost.
