Hi everyone,
Here's my story I'm from North Africa , I came to Dubai seeking a better life but nothing changed still struggling with life I'm working as Sales Assistant in a fashion brand, I've had always the idea of starting my own business, recently one Chinese sales assistant has joined our brand, I shared with him my idea of making business in Replicas.. The surprising thing that he has some of gucci/LV shoes..Rolex and other brands high end replica quality
The best thing that he has one friend let's say a digger who can find the best replica out there in China markets.
My questions
1-How can i master this business as a newbie
2-where can i sell this staff safely and continuously?
3- I'm thinking of making an Ecommerce website /offshore hosting, do I need a merchant account or is it safe if I work with my personal North African bank account ? Or I get myself cought by Feds ?

You promoting that site? Honestly? looks shit on mobile, home page has Christmas promotion even though it's mid January, content is badly written, the flashing text annoys the fuck out of me.

I could go on but I couldn't be bothered to look at any more of the site.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane to the late 90s lol! Doesn't work on mobiles, looks horrible, selling fakes, terrible domain name. Scrap it and try something else before you waste any more money

Haha, lol, the memories. Many many many years ago, a friend and I were buying HQ replicas and selling them to our extended friend circles (they knew exactly what they were buying). They were buying them to show off at work etc. They were really easy to sell because they were HQ and the buyers were extremely satisfied.

In short, if you can find HQ replicas at cheap prices (not easy), you can sell them locally without risk to people who want to show off but don't have money. It's not an automated thing though, you'll have to hassle. Which is why we stopped doing it because we had better staff to get nice money from.

Yeah that sounds like my actual story :D I have access to a lot fo HQ replicas, some types are actually unrecognizable... And I would really like to use that well! :) But if you have any tips like for better business than I could've skip this hassle and try to build other business. Anyway thanks for sharing your experience!

Replicas are illegal so the best bet is to sell them in palaces where regulations are not on the look like flea markets or third world countries. You can't open a shop of replicas in the USA or sell them online, you can of course but will face legal trouble.

you could get by with your website, but you cant make it grow big. bigger you grow, the more risks you take on. maybe this will get you a good income. but you'll never get RICH off this.

but again you may be able to make a ok living.

i wouldnt try it on ebay as the risks there are so much higher

I am Chinese and I was doing the exact job you are telling in 5 years ago.
2008 - 2012 was the golden time for replica luxury brand business. Many people got rich by selling replicas. They creating e-commerce websites which got traffic from SEO and CPC ads.
But eventually, the brands like LV and Gucci starts to take action to crack down these websites. Your domain name will be taken and your hosting will be shut down. Your website couldn't do Google ads and also couldn't get good ranks in Google search results.

The most horrible part is, you couldn't receive money through PayPal and you have to rely on some small payment gateway companies. They charge lots of transaction fee and may take your money with excuses like you are doing illegal business. And one day you found you couldn't ship the goods to your customer because customs reject your package.

However, the market is still there and I am sure many people are still earning money from this business. But if you are a newbie I'd advise you think twice.

A lot of reps are sold on taobao, through weibo and wechat, and on reddit now. If you could set up some kind of business that helps connect western purchasers with asian manufacturers and sellers, bridging the communication and language gap, maybe you could make something there.

I would stay away from replicas for several reasons:

1: the obvious reason... it’s illegal and you can get in a lot of trouble.
2: you need to have extensive knowledge of the real products to know your replicas are good ones.

You’d be better off starting a dropshipping commerce with items that don’t have any licensing.

So any better idea guys? I'm just a newbie with budget around 6k$. I would like to at least double the budget. Any idea that works and profits is good enough for me. And I'm really sad that coaching is banned here and IDK why. It would be the best opportunity for me, to take someone more experienced and listen to his advice and share profit with him.
Anyway thanks for all the advice! :)

It is a bit borderline, but maybe it depends on where you (or your partner) live. Maybe it can exist a country where there isn't focus on this kind of illegal jobs, and you could start your business based on replica items without any problems.

You can promote it with some spam on Google or Facebook groups.

However, If I were in your shoes I would change business model ;) since even if you will build a company with this kind of products it would be nothing stable and giving value to the world. Simply hustling to make some money on short terms...

I've decided to create a more stable business and I'd like to create my own local e-shop with good looking clothes especially for the youth. Do you have any recommendations? Like where can I get more information about this topic? Or is there on BHW any thread about this for new members? Thanks for help!
