#1 Scam: Fake Goods Sold as “Authentic”
Many suppliers selling “authentic” wholesale designer handbags, clothing, etc. online are selling fakes.Â They’re selling what’s called ‘7 Star’ replicas or ‘Mirror Image’ replicas. And these aren’t just any replicas. They’re top-of-the-line knockoffs made in China which come complete with authenticity cards, dust covers, and even serial numbers. They look so much like the real thing, most people can’t tell the difference.
And get this:Â I’ve taken some of these replicas to a major department store here in the United States and been told by their sales person that they were authentic!Â That’s how good they are. Granted, they didn’t fool every sales person.
So you have to be very careful when dealing with suppliers of designer goods, especially those offering wholesale designer handbags. If you don’t know this merchandise well, it’s easy to be duped. I know people with good intentions that have bought and sold replicasâ€”thinking they were selling the real thingâ€”for months without ever knowing.Â The problem: this merchandise is illegalÂ (even if you tell your customers it’s fake, it’s still illegal). It’s ‘trademark infringement’, and you can go to jail for it.
#2 Scam: Con Artists
The demand for wholesale designer handbags and other designer goods is high and the supply is relatively low, if we’re talking authentic product. Because of this fact, this industry is rife with con artists.
In fact, most of the offers you see online advertising authentic designer goods on sites like Dhgate.com are for fake merchandise or non-existent goods.
The con artists behind these operations can be very convincing, with fancy websites, price lists with pictures of inventory (stolen from reputable sellers), and phone numbers. Yet, when you pay them for merchandiseâ€”typically with a wire transfer or money orderâ€”they disappear.
Many people get scammed buying designer goods wholesale. If you don’t know this industry well, it’s very easy to get taken. I can’t stress this enough.
Some Designer Brands are Impossible to Get Wholesale
A few designer brands are so exclusive with the distribution of their goods, it is not possible to find them wholesaleâ€¦anywhere.
Louis Vuitton is one of these brands. Louis Vuitton is only sold wholesale to their boutiques, which are owned by the brand. They do not wholesale to anyone elseâ€”Nordstrom, Macyâ€™s, Saks Fifth Avenue, you name it. Because of this, it is not possible to get LV wholesale. Period.
In fact, if you come across anyone selling Louis Vuitton wholesale, I can guarantee you itâ€™s fake.
The exception to this is with pre-owned goods. You can find pre-owned LV wholesale. There are a few other designer brands which operate this way, but not to worry, itâ€™s not the norm. Most designers brands can be found at wholesale, if you know where to look. Â
How You Can Tell if a Supplier of Designer Goods is Legitimate
Here are 6 things that legitimate suppliers of wholesale designer handbags & other designer merchandise typically have in common. These suppliers:
Offer Merchandise that can be Authenticated by the DesignerÂ which means that if you mail the merchandise to the designer to have it authenticated or take it to a boutique, they will verify that it’s authentic. It also means that the designer will typically honor any repairs, warranty issues, etc. that may arise because the product is genuine.
Offer Wholesale PricingÂ so you can make a profit which, on average, is anywhere from 50-85% off retail for past-season merchandise and 25-45% off retail for current season merchandise.
Offer Past-Season Merchandise –Â More often than not, legitimate suppliers sell past-season merchandise (similar to the stuff you’d find in a designer outlet store). Don’t despair, this stuff sells like hot cakesâ€”just look at big name sites like BlueFly.com that sell this merchandise all day long. ‘Designer’ is always in demand. That being said, there are legitimate wholesale supplie
