Hi Everyone,

I am still unaware where to start looking for a legitimate supplier. If someone could recommend where to start looking for a supplier I would be very grateful.

Kindest regards

Hey Charles. It requires lots of research so be prepared. Get out a pen and paper. Check into the various wholesale suppliers for instance of the Apple iPhone. Make sure the iPhone is basically legitimate, take care of especially the shipping prices, and start communicating to your suppliers one on one.

Doing this repeatedly will make sure you never fail.

HI. Start on here with the salehoo search (located at the top of the page on the red bar). Spend some time going through the suppliers that you are interested in and compare prices, shipping prices, minimum ordering quantities, quality of products. Ask lots of questions..Also if you find a supplier that you think you might want to do business with, come back into the forums and post a question as to if anyone has done business with them and what were the results..Also BEFORE you buy, always do a 'whois' search and also do a scam and fraud check, by visitiing one of the 'scam alert' sites..In addition, always do a quick 'google' search on their website as if they are not on the up and up, a google check will normally turn up something...

Too, don't overlook the 'B2B' (business to business' sites as this is where you will normally find the true wholesalers, liquidators and suppliers...
