I have advance searched them in the forums and suppiler section here at Salehoo. I did find some info on jandc but nothing on buyonusa.com or inbrandbiz.com. I have contacted these companies and they have answered all of my questions promptly. I currently sell Uggs online and was looking for a supplier for Ed Hardy goods. I did check suppliers here on Salehoo for Ed Hardy but the profit margin is nill. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi There,

I'm also not quite familiar with these suppliers. But here are some simple things you can do to protect yourself when dealing with any supplier (especially those found outside of SaleHoo).

1. Run a whois check on the supplier's website to verify when it was created (it is safest to deal with suppliers who have been online at least a year), who owns the domain, and where the domain was registered (the country should match the contact details on the supplier's website). We recommend using Link hidden: Login to view (replace salehoo.com with the url of the supplier).

2. Search the SaleHoo forum for the supplier's website/company name and see what other members have to say.

3. Call the supplier's telephone numbers to ensure they are genuine.

4. Purchase a sample before bulk ordering to ensure that the item meets your expectations.

5. Watch out for sellers asking you to 'safeguard' your purchase by sending your money transfer in the name of a friend or loved one, or by establishing a 'test question'. These actions will not protect you from a fraudulent seller.

6. Low prices do not necessarily mean fraud, but radically low prices should warrant a closer look. If a price seems to good to be true, it probably is. Ask the seller as many questions about the item's authenticity as you can before you go any further.

7. Always use a credit card or Paypal to purchase goods. These forms of payment are safe because they give you a comeback if something goes wrong. With these payment methods, you can usually have the transaction reversed fairly easily if necessary.

Hope that helps.

Good info.

Add this to your DD.

Never do business with an individual person in Asia.
Never ever send any money to an individual(Not a business) anywhere ever. That includes even Paypal as they will never refund your money from that transaction.
And as an adjustment to always try to use Paypal or credit card.
Edit that to only use Paypal for non eBay transactions by using a credit card through Paypal.
The truth of the matter is Paypal is not trustworthy refunding fraudulent transactions from businesses outside of eBay. At best its 50/50.

And finally, google earth the address of the business.

I've heard of jandc but man what a terrible website.

Very difficult to get off the front page if not impossible with their tab system.
