    Hi everyone, new here.

    Recently got a genuine account in February and started to sell products from DHgate about 2 weeks ago. I sold about 15 of these items and I received a message from eBay saying I have to send them documentation of my supplier. So I need to send them an invoice.

    Not sure what to do, I've searched google for about 2 days straight looking for answers and they are all either

    1. Send them the genuine invoice and I'll be okay
    2. Send them a photoshopped invoice and I'll be okay
    3. Ditch the account and start a new one again

    My account has not been suspended they are just waiting for documentation.

    I'm not sure how I should proceed...

    If anyone knows how to handle photoshopped invoices I am more than willing to pay for help

    What is wrong with showing your DHgate invoice?

    This is to make sure the items being listed aren't fake/ or stolen.

    So if you aren't selling a branded item you SHOULD BE FINE WITH A DHGATE INVOICE.

    Again if you are selling a fake item, then you shouldn't be doing that, and should be more worried about actual law enforcement.

    I buy stuff off DHgate all the time, just nothing that's branded because it's basically all fake.

    Also proving you are buying authentic branded items also requires maybe permission from that manufacturer to sell those items.

    There is literally no point in trying to sell anything with a logo on it on Ebay, if you aren't legit, and don't have permission to do so.

    You can sell second-hand items though of whatever you want that is branded without companies getting on you, once you buy something it's yours.

    It's just buying fresh newly produced merchandise from a manufacturer that creates problems.

    If you're never going to be able to prove the authenticity of your products on ebay then give up on selling those items. It is a legit business, that isn't going to risk more lawsuits.

    Tell them to shut up and take your money. Keep their noses out of your business. Don't forget that you are paying them to be able to sell on their site. YOU are PAYING them! They are a service.
