    Is there any potential issues with this besides obviously ship times? The replica's I'm looking at are extremely hard to tell the difference from real and can fool a lot of people. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

    With replicas I wouldn't recommend it, the Chinese packaging would be a dead giveaway.

    I have done it. I wouldn't recommend it, but if the product is as legit as the original and they keep up with the quality then go for it. Be prepared for Ebay to crack down on you though depending on the product.

    Hello,

    I will tell you from my experience. My father worked with offline marketing and china products import/export.
    1)Chinese people are way to smart so you can fool them.
    2)They are not negotiating, you get only for what you pay. I will give you one example:" I went with my father back in 2008 i quess in China to more factories and i asked a phone seller if he can give me a phone with $10 cheaper. He told me this:Young man, this phone is worthing $65 if you wanna buy for $55 we will make a phone like this but will worth $55(Different colours,material etc)

    So the final words will be : If you wanna sell replicates don't look for cheaper ones, in china you can find the most HQ products but they are not cheap, try to pay a little more extra money.

    P.S: If you don't have budget to buy at least 500 pieces/per product, move on. :) WHY? Like i said they will not negotiate with you, they make a lot of custom orders and if they will start the machines/work etc just for 1 piece it's a big chance so you can pay as musch as it's an original one :)

    Cheers!

    Yes, you will get for what you pay. I think there is no HQ product with cheap price :)

    I would do it but only to build some quick money up. Fake electronics and jewellery I would stay well away from. Also clothes. Some fake shit is decent.

    Only to build some money? Are you insane? Don't forget all the stuff is coming from China quality,not quality,cheap,expensive, ALL(If you have experience,money and connections) you can be the second hand of production by reselling stuff and like i said you can't do it for some quick money. You need to buy quantity so you can get a good price.

    It is how I started off. I know you can build a business in it, however I just used it to get start up money.

    honestly it depends on what ur shipping, but if you want to make things smoother you should order the items and have them sent to a fulfillment warehouse and then have them ship it so customers wouldnt have to wait 3 weeks - month to get their product.

    It all depends on what you're looking to buy, there are HQ fakes and then there are fakes!
    I've been living in China for over 10yrs so I know what i'm saying.

    I own a 100% 1:1 Tag heuer carrera once then took it to the customer care, it took them a whopping 20-30 mins to confirm it indeed was a fake. lol!

    I think ebay by now is cracking down heavily on counterfeits and all.
    There's other marketplaces that are less lenient than them but with substantially much less traffic.
    Another major hurdle is payments..... ---->PayPal<---- stay away unless you have a site and can deal with high risk merchant accounts
