When you sell name brand electronics, etc., especially at a discount, a popular question is always going to be if the items are authentic, fake, or knock-offs. To answer that question…
Let’s take a closer look at their recent feedback history. Amazon buyers have a really good way of weeding out the good sellers from the bad. If an item even SLIGHTLY looks like it might be a counterfeit or knock-off, they will leave you bad feedback. And any and all flaws will usually be reflected in a seller’s feedback. With that being said, over the past 12 months, BLINQ has received about 7,700 positive feedback ratings, compared to just 8% negative feedback comments. With that sort of lop-sided ratio, it definitely appears as though BLINQ is an honestly run business, selling authentic merchandise.
All items are guaranteed to be 100% authentic, and come with all the manufacturer paper work, in their original authentic boxes as provided by the manufacturers.
BLINQ has their own website as well. The Google Customer Reviews for their site are also outstanding. Over 8,300 reviews (92% positive), with a 4.7 overall score. The graph indicates that the majority are 5 star ratings.
BLINQ is a business owned by a company called Optoro, Inc. They are located in Mount Juliet, TN. This business was started in 2010, and has had a file with the Better Business Bureau since 04/25/2017. Currently, BLINQ does not have any complaints filed with the BBB.
Questions about BLINQ
I see a lot of people asking how BLINQ offers products at such low prices. Most of these people are wondering if their items are legit, or fakes.
The answer is actually very simple. BLINQ is in the liquidation industry, so there are two main reasons that explain their low prices:
1.) Major retailers have overstock. There’s just no way around it. They buy x amount of a certain product, and are only able to sell some amount less than x.
When they need to clear out their excess inventory, for whatever reason, they sell these products in bulk lots at a fraction of their original cost. A liquidation buyer purchases these products in pallets like this:
For example, let’s say there is a Canon camera in that pallet above. If that camera originally cost them $500 to purchase, the liquidation buyer purchases that camera (as part of the bulk lot) for around $200.
Lower cost = lower selling price.
2.) Most manufacturer’s set MAP pricing standards (minimum advertised price). That means that a retailer can not sell the product lower that the MAP price.
A liquidator doesn’t have to abide by those standards, and can sell the product at whatever price they choose. Asides from the fact that they are purchasing the product for a fraction of the price that the original retailer did, even at the same purchase price, they are still able to sell for lower.
Either way, it’s a win-win for the end consumer. The only problem with these kinds of stores is that they don’t always have a steady inventory. So for example, they will have a quantity of 10 for a certain computer accessory today, and then maybe not have any more in stock for a few months. So if you need to return a product, they might not have another to send to you as a replacement – you’ll just get a refund.
Make sure you read the description in full. From time to time, liquidation products will have some minor cosmetic defect. Most of the time, it will be something harmless, like an opened box, or a torn package, etc., that you might not even notice. Yet and still, it doesn’t hurt to check just in case. For personal items, it probably doesn’t matter. If you’re giving a gift, it might.
BLINQ does have a 30-day hassle free returns policy for their Amazon store. No need to email back for a return authorization, or deal with with annoying emails back and forth. You just click on return, and send it back. And having a month to do so is quite convenient.
Of course, you’re still covered by the A-Z guarantee if they don’t take care of your issue. In my experience though, BLINQ responds to customer issues very quickly, and resolves all customer complaints in a timely manner.
