i import products from Honk Kong such as spare parts for smartphones.
Now i want to expand my business and want to buy Apple iPhones from there.
My supplier can supplie that and actually can show me the serial number of each no copy ones but has no licence to sell it.
I realy want to know if that can not be a problem for me? For custom?
Is that ok to buy and sell iphones from a supplier who has no licence? Do i need to show the licence to custom or is it enough to show them the serial number of the phones?
I realy hope you guys can provide me an answer for that

thank you

Hi Sebastien and welcome to the forum,

When you say he has no licence to sell the product, do you mean he's not an authorized Apple dealer?

Also, are you speaking of new phones here or refurbs?
