    It's illegal if you list the item as genuine. As long as you don't say the brand name or hint that the item is legit, then you won't get banned. Use big pictures and let your pictures do the talking for you. I'm about to start doing the exact same thing.

    Done this plenty of times except with iPods and other stuff like CHI hairstraighteners etc....Works well but all you need is a few complaints or Ebays Intellectual Property protectors to ban ur shit, even if they have reason to believe its fake, ebay has to comply and shut you down.....I wouldnt even bother, its shady business. Some countries are different but if the advertisment on your ebay auction is falsifying or misleading to a "reasonable individual" it will be considered false or misleading and could result in reprecussions

    Technically you will probably be violating tradmark laws. egay doesn't appear to care unless they get a complaint from the owner of the tradmark, when you will be gone faster than a cheetah with a radish up its ass.

    Coming from a replica seller of 3 years...more then likely u will be banned from ebay...its only a matter of time. so I suggest a few things..sell on ebay get up a little money get a offshore hosting and get your own site and sell with a offshore merchant account..that simple...use ebay as the platform to get some quick cash up...it works trust me :)

    what is the best way to sell replica items. it's legal as long as you say they are replicas right? like if you made your own website or something

    I would try it, but make sure you state that it is not the real thing.

    It is 100% illegal... You will be hit with Vero within minutes or hours of you posting your list... You simply can't get away with it anymore... Some people do, but they mix ;)... Mix real with fake and you will bank!
