    Hey guys,

    I just want to know if you made any experiences with dropshipping counterfeit goods from aliexpress especially to countries in europe (germany in my example).
    I know that there is the risk that the shipped goods can be sorted out by the customs at the geman border, but if i use the method of dropshipping there will be no way to find out, that i am the real customer or seller. And I donĀ“t think that every package will be checked at the border, so maybe 30 perecent of all packages are getting sorted out each day to control them.

    Regarding to a possible counterfeit dropship procedure I still have two main questions:

    1. Will it be possible to use SHOPIFY to set up my online shop, or do i have to create it myself with wordpress and woocommerce for example, becuase shopify does not allow counterfeit goods?
    If it's not possible: How is shopify able to identify my goods as counterfeits?

    2. What will happen, if one of my customers finds out, that the purchased good is fake?
    Easiest way would be to give him his money back. But if this customer is really fucked up, he will try to go to the german police and tell them that he bought counterfeit goods in my shop.
    Do i have to use an anonymous domain like .biz or is this still not save enough?

    What do you think guys? Did I forget something?
    Let me know! :)

    Why risk it? You'd be prosecuted . Why not go legit and build a long-term business and reputation

    I would stay away from counterfeit products. Just try to build up a reputable store using products from aliexpress, and if you have enough investment, you can always go with a "private label" and make your own brand, grow it that way.
