    Hello peeps.

    Any advice on this idea will be appreciated.
    So Eb****ay are against replica stuff being sold on their site.
    OF course half the bags etc are replica even though sellers say they are genuine so I thought why not launch a niche auction site that sells just replicas?

    So please give feedback on this and how to get the word out.

    Thanks
    Happy day

    Nice idea! Actually people love replica stuff..

    However, the problem is the legal issue...

    You could launch the replica auction site from an offshore server. Of course, it will take a lot of money, a lot of time, and a lot of skill to market it big enough and to do it right (which is a funny irony, since the site is for replicas).

    Once you get it going then it will be profitable but you will have to do those things that ximscreamingx suggested to keep things running smooth, if you are dedicated to it, it will definitely work out.

    Offshore server must be a part of the project. Legit hosting company will terminate your account when they find any compliant.

    Also, you can make it as a private auction site.. I think people who bought replica stuff will continue to buy them... So it is no need to public the auction item, it is no need to grown as big as ebay... but it is still very profitable. Make it private may solve "some" legal issue... (maybe..)
