    No fluff here. Here's the method. I don't and have never done this, just something I noticed.

    Whitelabel Aliexpress + Indiegogo.

    *Please note that these are two old campaigns. Don't use these products as you won't get anywhere with them. They're old tech and not trending anymore.

    1. Go and explore some new tech that's trending. Research the buzz, see what has people talking.
    2. Search for your product(s) on Aliexpress/Alibaba and get into a conversation with your supplier about white label.
    3. Hire a graphic and web designer for some branding or do it yourself. Create a site showcasing the product and the 'team' behind it to help sell it on your indiegogo pitch.
    4. Order a couple of test products and make a promo video specifically for the Indiegogo community.

    Example #1 - $60,203
    Code:
    https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nano-drone-for-beginners-fun-easy-to-fly#/
    And the Aliexpress product:
    Code:
    http://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-2-4G-4CH-6-axis-Gyro-M9912-X6-Mini-Drone-RC-Quadcopter-remote-control-helicopter/32394101353.html?spm=2114.01020208.3.37.S4MQH1&ws_ab_test=searchweb201556_4,searchweb201644_3_79_78_77_82_80_62,searchweb201560_3

    Hoverboards were also dropshipped to users. The exact model is no longer on sale as far as I can see on aliexpress, but there are a number of very similar ones. See the sales page here -

    Code:
    https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/revobot-the-most-advanced-body-gravity-board
    This campaign raised $104,255

    If you go and explore you may notice one or two other products that are doing the exact same thing. All these people have done is to order white labeled products from aliexpress and ship them to backers. Of course some top notch marketing was involved for the pitch itself, but fluff and bluff. That's how they did it. Grab a camera and a couple of friends who care more about money than morals. Make sure you're a piece of shit too and you're good.

    Hopefully that will give you an idea or two and certainly if you have some liberated morals you can make bank on something like this. Ciao for now.

    They're not my campaigns and I've never done this. It's just something this 'company' did. And if you look at the comments on the Hoverboard you can see he didn't run a very tight ship. Some of the buyers found out but that didn't make any difference.

    What I would say is that, if anyone does intend on doing this then find the latest trends and jump on it. Talk to a good supplier and make sure you can get your own branding on there and the packaging and delivery of the product is important to iron out from the get go.

    Like I said before, this is simply something I noticed and not something I would ever be comfortable in doing. Just making y'all aware of it.

    Those website are for people who have a new idea to create a new product to sell.I won't this because it just like scamming people to buy fake thing with a premium price.

    For my advice,leave these website for new idea maker.

    Depend on your personal,you might not wrong for doing this.This only a moral issue.It was not wrong to post here as here is blackhatworld.

    By the way,some product are illegal to do so.

    What exactly do you mean by this? That this supplier will pack the product with your logo or? Maybe that is a stupdi question but i don't clearly understand it. Beside that great idea, thanks for sharing.

    You quoted the wrong guy :), but yes, that's what OP meant. If it's a white label product, the supplier will ship it either blank/unbranded or with your branding.

    As Honeybird said, whitelabel will allow you to print your own labels and packaging on the product. But this is something that you need to discuss with the supplier beforehand.

    I've spoken about this and I'm in agreement with you. It's not going to stop anyone from doing it mind, and it's already happened in multiple instances.

    Great spot. Too much backlash for me though, although I am sure people are banking with this
