    I know it is very hard to sell fakes on ebay and it is also immoral. But it had me wondering...

    For those who havent heard of ioffer, its a place like ebay FULL of chinese sellers selling fake clothing etc.

    If I was to set up an account on Ioffer and sell, for example, a louis vuitton handbag for $40. Then if I had it dropshipped to my buyer from a seller on Aliexpress for $20. I keep the profit.

    If the fake was found at customs, as far as they are concerned it has come from my supplier in China, whilst I'm here in the UK. Effectively this is dropshipping. I guess Paypal could ban you though?!

    Yes Paypal will ban you, i used to sell a lot of fakes, mostly make up and handbags. Paypal accounts never seemed to last long.

    Turkish Quality beats the Chinese ones with light years.

    Find a Turkish dealer.

    It's more than immoral lol

    It's illegal. If you deal with fakes prepare for the fallout.

    OK guys, so what's the best checkout option for selling stuff like this (counterfeits) on iOffer? What do you use?

    Paypal will ban you eventually, Skrill will do that as well, Paymate states that it doesn't accept such business also. Western Union could to the job but it is a very slow service compared to listed before.

    Credit Card payments through various processors such as PaySimple, ClickBank, GSPay, Gate2shop etc ?

    I do not have any experience with this, but since you do not sell them at original price, you are indirectly stating it is fake, aren't you? How would that still be illegal and immoral? People who buy from iOffer already know the merchandise is probably fake. Why would PayPal ban you then?

    Of course you don't sell them at original price and people do know that it is fake. But Paypal protect IP rights and are constantly banning people for selling fake stuff. That's why many merchants are creating stealth accounts on Paypal. It's just the way it is.
    Don't even try to sell such stuff with Paypal - it will take days, not even weeks, until you get limited.

    With Chinese products, your business will be more cost-effective.

    It really depends on the supplier. The bad suppliers are the ones that kills cost effectiveness because of all the crap they produce.

    Don't you think that the iOffer customers are aware of the stuff being fake?

    The problem is not the customers (mostly). It's the checkout system.
    Most of customers do know that the stuff is fake so they buy it with happiness. But for example, Paypal tracks your transactions and they will find out for what are you getting your money.
    So that's why I'm interested what is the best way to make checkout for customers who want to buy fake stuff and be happy about it.

    have you heard about 100% ebay gurantee?
    If you do such things then your buyer will contact the ebay support and ebay will not only return their money but also ban your seller account.


    So its bad idea.
