    Hey,

    I like this site, plan to stay active. I searched around for threads like this, found many, but I still wanted to post my own to see the ones currently available.

    I plan to resell Jordans through Taobao. I've looked into Taobaoring, Zarmark, Yoybuy, etc. and the fees make it hard to make a good amount of profit reselling on eBay. I'd like to know if there's anyone here who knows of a source with reasonable service fee and shipping price?

    I plan for this to be a long-term business for some income. Don't mind payment methods, PayPal, Western Union, MoneyGram, whatever.

    EDIT: In case it needs to be said, I won't be sending wire transfers or any type of payment until I can confirm reliability of the agent.

    Shoes - always shoes and more shoes. Shipping shoes is expensive. Suckers are bulky and heavy.

    And using a taobao agent does not help to keep the price low. Every one in the chain needs to make a profit

    And why always China ? Like it's the only place in the world with a Chinese population...

    Any payment method ? WU is okay as well ? You'll have your inbox full very quickly indeed....

    My reasoning that the J's I see on Taobao sell for around $350 minimum, and prices after shipping and service fees are around $200. Selling many pairs at once can be profitable.

    Jordans are made in China, which is why China. I buy from there already personally and vouch for the quality and authenticity, just looking for a cheaper connect if possible.

    I'm no idiot either, I'm not about to go sending wires to random people PM'ing me.

    I don't know if you're implying that I'm trying to scam or anything, but okay. Just checking to see if there's a better taobao agent out there, not to be giving out supplier that can be found via an easy google.

    you won't make any profit trying to resell jordans from taobao. espically with those agents because they charge a lot for shipping. i already have an idea of who you're trying to resell from

    Jordans + Taobao = Everyone knowing the source. Why not though?

    They have sneakers there that sell well and the total price even after all the agent's fee's and shipping is still low enough to make a good amount of profit from being resold.

    With that said, it won't be any kind of super profitable business and I don't really expect it to be. But even small profits are worth it in my case all things considered. $500 every few weeks is pretty good money for young adult, at least I think so.

    EDIT: Let's talk in the other thread.

    You want to buy authentic jordans from taoboa? Are there any at all? If yes, I think prices will be just the same as in US for authentic ones.
    And if you want to buy/sell replicas, I do not think that this will work well, because especially Nike is quite pro active when it comes to removing counterfait products on eBay ....

    check out kinstor. get all my jordans from him & resell on ebay, no problems at all. last big purchase was for the gamma blue 11s. real carbon fiber & everything. hit him up on skype kinstorstyle i believe (if not, the site has it) but yea, he's really good. good prices. extremely fast shipping too.

    & as far as the prices, they're usually retail or a little over retail. example : gamma 11s. 180 shipped, but since it's a sold out shoe, you can easily make 350+ a piece on ebay.

    That is not a good idea. Taobao is famous for its fake products.

    You guys are talking about B grades and actually believe they authentic ? No there are not, come from the same factory but actually still shit!

    God I miss the time when my father took me to NYC often because of his job, buying some J's and being the coolest kid in the block. Hunting sneakers is not even fun anymore with shitty resellers, hypebeast going berserk for shit pairs etc...

    The real J's are not on Taobao but on the other site Tao Mall or something like that.

    Hi would you mind sending email to shanonwang at yahoo..., she has helped friends in this blackhatforum to buy from taobao.
    5%-6% fee generally, and find the cheapest shipment for clients. The friend in this forum bought 5kg to UK, will take more than 90$ buy other agent, but, for shanonwang only charged around 50$
