    Hello.
    My freind is going to order 10 replica polo longsleeves from China to Sweden.
    What should the safest be for him? Sent by EMS in two packages, 5 in each one. Or 10 of them in one package?
    Regards.

    The smaller the package the better. I would go with 2 shipments of 5 if it does not affect the profit margin. I used to purchase replicas through Alibaba & DH Gate. They had a an escrow service. If anything was intercepted by customs I would get my money back (or they would re-ship).

    Well, with two packages he have to pay 20$ extra, would you say it worth it still?

    Well, lets do the math. $20 divided by 10 shirts = $2/shirt extra. Will you still make decent profit with that extra $2 per shirt?

    25+2= 27$.
    I will make around double profit with 2$ extra. Is that enough you think?

    That is a good profit, definitely. But, if you have a guarantee from your supplier or go through some escrow service, maybe try 1 package t first. Most suppliers will work with you if the package gets intercepted by customs.

    Personally I do not sell replicas anymore and I do not suggest you doing it. It is dangerous and illegal. On the flip-side, profit margins are really good with replicas. Just be careful.
