    People import replicas from China or where-ever. then try to recruit "foot soldeirs" to sell them on amazon/ebay/offline for a % of the profits.etc It's not a huge problem IF they didn't try to "bend the truth" to the seller and tell them they are legit.

    They then make up all kinds of excuses as to why they can get legit products from China for a fraction of the price and amazingly..they are willing to let you share in their extraordinary profits. Which makes absolutely no sense at all. I mean if I could seel Iphones at $200+ profits why on earth waste my time recruting other sellers for 50% of the profits?

    I am sorry. I have come across this scenario time and time again. Not one legit real supplier of branded products.

    Typical excuses

    I am a wholesaler
    I like to help people out (LOL)
    I have links to the factory
    I have family in the company
    I have licence that gets me 50% off


    I am not saying all are doing this...but everyone I have looked at has/is.

    Common sense will alwys tel lyou what is relaly happening. Use it or don't.

    I agree with most of what you're saying but some of the reasons why a genuine supplier chooses to wholesale or dropship is because their hitting monthly limits on eBay. I've successfully worked with a couple people from this section so it wouldn't be wise to discredit all wholesalers because of a few bad eggs. Just my two cents.

    What you say is true for the most part. I bet a bunch of these "suppliers" just buy from ioffer and have the seller there ship to the end customer. Drop-drop-drop shippers LOL.

    I totally agree, thats about all its come down to here. That and every other thread is for a wholesale hookup or someone looking for a hookup for HIGH DEMAND APPLE PRODUCTS for cheap.

    This is very unfortunate and so far it seems that I am one of the limited few that sells only authentic physical items on here
