    There is a BST thread on BHW since 2012 where the seller is selling something at $xxx/service. I want to re-sell this service and I am 100% sure that I can send atleast 200 orders in his way in the coming a few months, which means high-$xx,xxx worth of orders. I asked the seller for a demo of his earnings (related to the above mentioned service) through TeamViewer and he said he won't do that due to privacy. Then I asked him if I fly to his city and then he will show me his earnings in his own laptop without violating his privacy and after asking this he stopped replying to me.

    Do you think that I should risk high-$xx,xxx and believe him ?
    Or I should give it a pass as the seller should be flexible enough to a high-$xx,xxx worth of buyer to prove what he is selling ?

    that pretty much violates his privacy...

    in life you gotta take risks, if you think you can make money with his service then try to make money with it.

    unless you really need the money and can't live without it.

    I am not sure why you would want to see the seller's earnings... I have a an awful lot of resellers and affiliates for my services and never has one asked to see what I made or the volume I sold.

    If they did, I would not share that either.

    Am I missing something in your question?

    I am re-selling his service with a guarantee to my buyers that if that service does not work then I will provide 100% refund. So if I spend $xx,xxx and after that the service doesn't work, then I will have to refund that money to my buyers but the BHW seller won't refund me. This is why I need to be 100% sure that his service does work and he is not selling one of those WarriorForum type of services.

    Ok, you are not looking to see what he is generating in revenue/earnings but rather the results of his service... yeah, I'd want to see that myself if I were you before moving forward.

    If his service is SEO, then no one can guarantee that it will 100% work. What is his service?

    I would suggest you make a couple of test orders....see for yourself if your clients get results and if good then scale up and order more. That is minimum risk you have to take....and also check his reviews...contact previous buyers via PM and ask them about their results etc.

    His service is Amazon website, which he says will make $1200+/month after doing SEO. So you see that I can't do a test buy because a test buy will need 3 months to confirm (as it will take 3 months for a site to rank on G) with SEO. So if I test, 3 months will be spent and by that time all my buyers will be gone.

    Here is my advice, and it is only my opinion. I would stay well away. You can't guarantee that people will make money with an Amazon site, it is simply a sales pitch. It may be possible for someone to make $1,200 with one of the sites provided, however I would guess the majority do not even make their investment back.

    mickyfu is 100% correct. Plus you may be getting website-catfished.

    You could always buy one of the sites yourself and see how "easy" it is to make money with Amazon affiliates.

    You're trying to see what niches the seller is promoting to make money. No one will be ready to share their bread and butter based on the assumption that you'll provide $XX,XXX business. Even if you want to meet him in person, he may still have to show you the niches/sites he is promoting.

    From his point of view, you're trying to get his Particular niches/sites which is a big risk for him. He may think that you want to setup a shop next to him. People always replicate the money makers from flippa or any other source where they get verified info.

    Any business is built based on trust. If you don't trust the seller don't go for it.

    Thanks for getting back to the thread.

    What I want to see is ONLY the earnings pages on your Amazon account, by doing which I won't have access to your niches and keywords.

    Hope this is okay with you.

    Based on this I guess it is luhasr who's service you are looking to resell.

    Asking to see earnings as proof of the service is just not the done thing. luhasr doesn't make any promises in his sales thread that anyone will earn $1200 from the websites, it is up to the buyer to put the effort in to make it work.

    Regarding his service of providing websites I can say that he is probably one of the more reputable providers as I rarely see any complaints on his threads. I myself have purchased a site from him and it was delivered as promised. (Not one of his amazon sites though)

    If you are going to resell the service it should be based solely on what is being provided and not on any guaranteed future earnings because nobody can predict that.

    I know he is very reputed.
    But I am just willing to have a look at his earnings page on Amazon without seeing a single other thing.
    We are top-notch at SEO and luhasr's Amazon sites are as described then we can make the sites rank top-3 on Google but as an extra precaution and before blindly buying $xx,xxx worth, we are just interested have a look at his own earnings page, whether they are as he is saying. This is just to be sure that we don't get burnt.

    Like I said though, he makes no promises of those earnings, it is just possible to earn that and more.

    I doubt very much he, or any other seller for that matter will show you their earnings as proof of a website service they provide. What they earn personally is their business and nobody elses.
