    Hey guys, I'm new here but I've read FAQs and all the rules, anyway I need some help. I really want to start making money on eBay. I think I'll go with dropshipping, but can someone help me with the suppliers? I don't where to get replicas, well, to be honest I've found some websites saying that they make AAA+ replicas, but how can I know that? Anyway I'm interested in selling Ray Ban wayfarer replicas.

    I will be really grateful for every response.

    P.S. Don't judge me for bad english, I'm from Lithuania.

    EDIT: I didn't find any info about replicas in this forum (is it legal to talk about it or not), but I would be interested to know more about Ray Ban wayfarer genuine sunglasses suppliers.

    Hey, Im am also just starting to sell on ebay so i can give you a few pointers.

    First you need to source a product use Alibaba or Dhgate for that. Find suppliers that accept paypal, it is the safest payment method and it can be used to insure that your money isnt being stolen.

    Second you need a stealth eBay account. Anonymity is the key to success in this business. You do not want people knowing your actual identity.

    These are basic tips that require some more research but this should get you started. Hope this helps :)

    Technically talking about replicas and stuff are against the rules... but there are usually more important issues I feel the mods concentrate on.

    We have been talking about replicas a lot lately on this forum... and heres my conclusive thoughts on the subject...

    Replicas are like cheating in a game of poker. Business is the game of poker. If you are new to the game of poker and you walk into a Las Vegas casino and you put $5 down and start pulling cards from your wrist on big bets... you are going to lose. The casino knows you aren't a professional and won't hesitate to pull you out into the back alley and beat you with a phone book. If you are a professional and you've been playing the game and you can win small bets all day long... you can pull some cards out of your wrist every once in a while and as long as you aren't too greedy, you can do it as long as you want.

    Paraphrased, replicas aren't for new people.

    Thank you for replying. I've heard that there are lots of scammers at Alibaba or Dhgate. Is it true? By the way, what is stealth account and how do I get it? Thanks.
    Thanks for your answer, do you have any kind of tip where could I find cheap genuine Ray Ban sunglasses? Thanks.

    Looks like you don't have to worry too much about the authenticity of them, tons of fakes being sold on eBay at the moment.

    Yeah, I've seen many of fakes at eBay. So what you say is that I shouldn't worry selling Ray Ban replicas at eBay at all?

    Sorry about stupid questions, but I'm just trying to know more about everything.
    What if one of my customers find out that I'm not selling real Ray Ban sunglasses? What should I do then?

    normally from what i hear (new to ebay, just started myself) heres MY thoughts on things like raybands, clothing, etc

    1. make sure you see the product first hand before selling to see how "real" it is, if its of decent quality, go for it.
    2. sell them acting completely legit like theyre real
    3. IF you run into any troublel with a customer, offer him a refund without returning the product. Don't admit that you sell fakes, just tell him you strive for full satisfaction, appologize that he is not happy with his product, insure that they are real, but offer a refund. being replicas, you shouldnt be out but 20 bucks or so, thats worth keeping your account @ 100% positive feedback and unbanned

    Thanks for your thoughts, Dragn.

    By the way, I found one supplier, he accepts paypal. But what if I will get scammed? I mean, will I be able to get my money back?

    Labas :) kashiro, how coincidental I'm in lithuania right now. With raybans, I would say that 98% of them listed on EBay are fake. I have sold over 100 in the past and have found that it's best to be honest to your customer (when it comes to raybans). If they ask me if it is real I always tell them that it's not but it's a 1:1 copy and they usually still buy it as it's only like 25% of the real value.

    However, I don't see how you will be profitable from lithuania due to the high shipping costs and I find that most lithuanians on EBay sell fake designer hangbags due to a higher margin. As for suppliers I will PM you the one I have been using. I would say that most of the sellers sell the same thing anyway but this one delivers fast and quite cheap.

    Hey, thanks for trying to help me, I really appreciate it. By the way, do you speak lithuanian? Also, do you have an IM like MSN or Skype? If you don't mind I'd like to talk about some things. If you're ok with that, just PM me.
    Thanks
