    while considering the Brand new lots for reselling on Amazon, what do you suggest when amazon asks for wholesale invoices OR brand authorization letter?

      Hi Ali – Great question! As the Amazon marketplace grows their third-party seller base, they are becoming increasingly more strict with who can sell and what products they can list on their platform. As a liquidation source, BULQ manifests will not be accepted by Amazon as an official invoice or authorization document. We recommend selling only in categories and products you are currently ungated in or consider creating new listings for your items. However, we highly recommend that you only sell products on Amazon that you find will be successful for you business and do not risk being kicked off the Amazon platform.

          Hi Leslie- All BULQ lots are completely manifested, so you’ll always know what you’re receiving in your case or pallet! You can access each manifest by clicking “download complete manifest” at the bottom of each lot listing.
