    Hi I am starting a dropshipping store but the products I am selling have brand names like make-up brands. Will registering my business or getting a resale license solve this? What if I put in TOS that all products are repackaged or returns or used. Just something to cover my ass. Any suggestions??

    I am trying to stay away from the usual places (Ali-express) and try other online stores to get faster shipping times. I am in the USA.

    There is no real money in dropshipping genuine things. Better finding a good fake supplier.

    I actually started online selling fake make-up products many years ago. Used to make a fair bit selling YSL mascara and MAC brushes. Some suppliers were spot on, some were a joke. I guess it is nowhere near as easy now.

    When it's fake, none of your solutions will cover you but you won't get caught fast either, just need to take a couple pre-cautions, can't help you further as selling imitation stuff is not my style.

    If your products are genuine then what you are doing is nothing other than parallel importing which is perfectly legal.

    However, I got a feeling that you being a criminal mastermind and all, are selling counterfeited items. In this case, what you are doing is copyright infringement which OF COURSE is illegal regardless of the circumstances.

    You may or may not get caught, but if you do, you're definitely not looking at a simple c&d letter but a lawsuit from the infringed party as well as possibly a class action lawsuit from your previous customers.
