    Seems like the trawling intellectual property agents on Ebay is making life difficult for a lot of us. So I got to thinking:

    Any real options of selling replicas on Amazon? I do not care if I burn my account some day, I do not need my replicas to stay online forever, just as long as they remain for longer than on Ebay. I know nothing about the subject really, but I bet some of you guys do.

    Amazon does not work with replicas. They will shut u down with a quickness.

    I did it back in 07, made $30,000 before I was shut down.
    Even though I made so much, I wish I sold legit items so I would still have my "sellers account'. :cool:

    Selling replicas isn't easy. I just started and already having problems. Have you had to deal with chargebacks yet?

    Nope, just some SNAD and INR reports to Ebay.

    Now that's a secret ;) It is branded goods of a very small but very hip brand. Made some good money but eventually the lawyers crawled out from under some rock. I think I became too greedy.

    Problem is that all the replicas are there already. Nobody is going to pay Western world prices if Chinese prices are listed nearby

    Amazon has a similair system as eBay when it comes to seller disputes.
    What is making you consider other platforms apart from eBay?
    Or are you just looking to expand your business?

    Getting more Ebay accounts as we speak so def. looking to expand. The seller disputes issue is not a problem. These are mirror replicas that are 100% identical to the original. The customers are happy

    I may be shooting in the dark here but how about setting up your own store using Magneto coupled with a high risk payment account.

    You'll have to do a bit of seo but you won't get banned as easily.

    Ioffer is full of replicas anyway, theres too much competition for selling replicas there, on am@zon you can get by with selling replica dvd sets and such for awhile.

    Exactly, the methods you sell could affect on these things as well as the products. Some products just arent meant to be fakes I guess.
