Hi luican,

Are you actually planning on selling imitation products? Do you know the legal implications and consequences you may face when caught?

As much as possible we try not to add suppliers (to our directory) selling imitation products as this is against the law in most countries. And brand owners are quite vigilant in catching up with sellers selling imitations of their brand/product - you could get sued for millions for just selling something worth a few hundred dollars.

DH Gate - is directory a Chinese suppliers, which we have kept in our directory as they have a number of good sellers for most generic (no brand) items. You may want to check them out.

Hope this helps.

Hi luican,

A replica product is a product produced to replicate the original, and it is illegal to sell because it has been made outside of the brand owner's licensing requirements.

A designer inspired product is legal to sell because it is only based on the designer's product, it does not attempt to replicate it in authentically. For example, a designer inspired Chanel handbag would not carry the Chanel brand name, would not intrude on any specific design copyright issues that were applicable that is licensed to Chanel, and so on.

Let me know if you are after the designer inspired lots, there are several suppliers that I can recommend. :)
