What to do with returns, overstocks and refurbished products? Remarketing provides the solution.
According to a recent BITKOM study, consumers continue to expect free product returns on purchases. Consumers have become familiar with last minute or impulse buys and this behavior has fueled the volume of returns coming back to retailers and manufacturers. To avoid unpredictable sales risks and reduce the cost of returns, they rely on services and solutions that effectively handle the returns management process.
As Europe’s leading remarketers for over 15 years, AVIDES provides its customers with strategical solutions that meet their product challenges.
The company takes ownership of the goods and puts them into the market for resale through their own online store or its vast European dealer network.
“Our customers are looking for a solution that meets their liquidation challenges and minimizes the cost of returns management,” explains managing director Ralf Avides Nordhastedt.
AVIDES has business locations in Great Britain and Poland, with a support network of over 350 fixed partners throughout Europe. “We place great importance on strong and reliable partnerships, which includes the personal care of our individual traders” says Hastedt. “So, we make sure that the goods land only where they can and should”. Traceability is especially important for overstock products and putting these into market without effecting the brand or current positioning of new and current lines is very important. The fashion industry is a great example of where overstock goods must not affect the sales of new collections.
Another marketing option provided by AVIDES is multi-channel sales for the B2C sector. For over 15 years AVIDES has successfully sold goods via popular consumer platforms like Amazon or eBay. Based on brand requirements and specifications the company operates via the customer’s own shops or markets them through AVIDES Stores.
