    That's like someone saying they can dropship Apple products. You can't. These are all fake, just look at the phone titles:
    [h=1]6 5S unlocked original mobile[/h]
    Nowhere does it says iPhone in the title because its not an iPhone.

    Keep in mind that, scam or not, you will be buying highly competitive products that have very little room for markup. It's tough to make $ with products like these.

    You can't find them on that site.

    Sony won't negotiate a better deal than 10% unless you buy billions in volume PS4 and accessories from them for years.
    Samsung will only give you max 15% for the same extreme amount of bought volume for years.
    Apple will never give you more than 9% volume discount and you need a store front making 100k profit per year brick and mortar to start selling phones.

    You can't find liquidation or even damaged products to sell for these companies without paying an outrageous mark up. My clients buy some of these products in large volume, or have a promotional to pay for the item while making money from some other deals in their store. People usually have a sale for a phone, but they make up money in the accessories department.

    Good luck raising capital for such stuff, and if you are serious about it stop looking for "Cheap" and you won't get scammed. Synnex, Tech Data, etc are the wholesellers for electronics and you need accounts with them. Samsung and Apple might deal with you directly, but you need large money and to be established already as a famous retail outlet. Sony is never going to talk to you at all about deals. Give the dream up and stop looking for cheap scams. If they sell it on eBay they had something link gigbucks give them "CPA" money bonuses for completing offers for the PS4 (and they sell for little profit due to eBay fees).

    That is exactly what we're saying.
    You need to understand that original electronics like Apple iPhones; Samsung Galaxy Phones and PlayStation 4 are generally MORE expensive in china.
    This is why you see tenancies like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ef_BznBwktw happening in the US.

    Judging by the links you provided, I would highly recommend you stay as far away from this field as you possibly can.
    Not only will you get screwed, you won't have any legal basis to ask for your money back.

    Never buy expensive electronics from China. Phone charger and stuff are ok, but no smartphones or consoles.

    FAAAAAAKE. and incredibly obvious they are fake. I've always used Ali for little fun drop shipping items, not fake phones that are made by some of the biggest companies in the world. Nothing to be confused about here, just don't.

    I agree here mate, have been doing business with China for years. You have to have large amounts of money to compete or to buy "the real deal". If I were you, i'd focus on something else than electronics. Plenty of niches to find on Ali. PM if you need more help!

    My suggestion is to go for more reputable merchants; eBay or Amazon.

    This will help in reducing risk.
