A review of used devices in one photo

This is no secret that buying products in bulk is cheaper than in retail. Used electronics are no exception. However, in order to profitably buy devices this way, you must have a deep understanding about market specifics. Better be as well extremely attentive to the choice of customers and suppliers.

Used tablets are traded less than used smartphones. Less competition provides an opportunity for more earnings down the road. But not everything is bright and shiny in wholesale trading. There are huge risks, for instance, to come across a low-quality product or an unscrupulous partner. That's why we collected a number of useful tips and attention-required points when purchasing tablets wholesale.

Features of buying iPads in bulk

Wholesalers generally buy products in bulk from dealers, sub-dealers, or directly from manufacturers. In their turn, they can sell it to end-consumers (buyers) and retailers. Compared to a dealer, a wholesaler may not limit the range of products sold and can freely replace or supplement it. Therefore, he can safely cooperate with several suppliers, even if their products are similar in terms of category (tablet, smartphone) or brand (Apple, Samsung). When you want to buy iPads on a large scale, it is vital to choose a good supplier in order to be sure about the goods’ quality without overpaying.

Why should wholesalers buy iPads?

One of the phone business growing options is scaling through product list expansion. It would be a good idea to consider buying and selling not only phones but also tablets. When it comes to restocking, you can buy iPads in bulk to save money and quickly recoup your investment. Here are some reasons:

1) Lower price. Wholesale goods are purchased from the manufacturer or from the dealer at the most favorable prices.

2) Product quality. If you find reliable suppliers, you can always be sure to buy high-quality products. Although no matter what supplier you have, to ensure the condition of the device, you should conduct iPad diagnostic test. 

3) Varied assortment. Wholesalers are usually not limited to a certain set of products. They can afford a wide range of goods.

4) Free distribution. For wholesalers, it is possible to sell products anywhere. There are no regional restrictions so you can choose a supplier from all over the world.

Pitfalls of buying iPads in bulk

Taking into account all the benefits, wholesale trading has certain disadvantages too. Among them are:

1) Start-up capital required. In order to buy a batch of tablets in bulk, considerable financial resources are needed.

2) Product mismatch. You can easily run into a situation where you receive the wrong product that you ordered. In case of a large batch purchase, this can be a serious problem.

3) Supplier dishonesty. This moment entails a lot of trouble, mainly of a financial nature. Therefore, it is always necessary to carefully choose suppliers and check all the information about them. Moreover, it is crucial to use iPad diagnostics and check the quality of the devices.

4) Lack of demand for goods. It is necessary to carefully monitor current trends and customer requests before planning your activities. However, a situation is always possible when there are leftover products that could not be sold at the estimated cost. It is better to focus on manufacturers who will definitely always be in demand. That is why Apple iPads are an immortal classic. In order not to fall into the trap of supply and demand, you need to act proactively. It is worth trying to negotiate with the manufacturer in advance about compensation for such a product or about discounts on the next delivery.
