      Argos Clearance Auctions definitely offers customer return products that you can buy in bulk, but sometimes they’re untested items. The auctions are part of the Home Retail Group, which is one of the UK's largest non-food retail chains, with sales of over £5bn. The Argos Clearance Auction website, http://www.wholesaleforum.com/discuss/www.argosclearance.co.uk, offers bidders an opportunity to bid for pallets of stock through internet auctions. Current product(s) for sale fall into one of the following grades: A, A-, B+, B- and untested stock, with each listing consisting of a number of pallets.

      Product(s) for sale fall into one of the following categories:

      1. "A grade" - New unused stock, which may have been in warehouses and/or stores for some time.
      2. "A-“- Customer returns are "As New" condition and complete with all accessories.
      3. "B+” - Customer returns show minimal signs of use.
      4. "B-" - Customer returns may have missing accessories. You may notice visible signs of use.
      5. "Untested Returns" - This comprises mixed products considered unfit for resale. It includes returns from customers that are "faulty" although no testing at the warehouse has taken place. Accessories may also be missing.

      You have to transfer your winning bid amount (including 17.5 % VAT) into an Argos bank account. The Argos account details will be included in the winning bid email notification. You have to pay within two working days of the auction ending.

      I’m thinking about re-selling products from Argos Clearance Auctions, but I’m concerned there’s a high percentage of products that won’t work properly. I mean, after all, these products were returned by customers for a reason...

      I heard a lot of mixed reviews about Argos Clearance. It can be pretty hit or miss. You should research before you buy. Pay attention to the grades and remember - you get what you pay for. Look at the RRP when you research the price for what you're selling. Keep in mind, too, that you have the option of dealing with Argos directly or shopping from an Argos clearance store.

      Personally, I would never use Argos again or recommend them to anybody. I’m still waiting for several watches I paid for two months ago. Been told to wait a few more weeks. After I complained I was told to cancel the order.

      I am very disappointed with the customer service. I absolutely cannot reach anyone who works at Argos by phone, and when I tried to write them an email, their site just crashed.
