Are the products you are selling actually branded fakes?

My guess is most probably yes, and in so would be where your problem exists, you simply can't breach a trademark holders rights.

Drop us some details so I can take a good look at the issue for you.

Thanks for your feedback. The items I have tried to sell are from a number of wholsalers including dhgate, beltal, manybrand, a number of the ones that listed on this site and many more. They are great quality, will try and pull up a pair of shoes and ed tshirts i have taken off recently..How do people sell this stuff as I have bought from ebay the same item from a differnt seller and it clearly is not original cause it simpy too cheap-great quality though. The Louis Vuitton range Never go on sale there for how can a wholesaler buy them discounted when the originals never cheap.?

I Bought These Boots from manybrand for US$75 ea
This is what I got when I put them on Ebay.

Thank you for your recent Fixed Price listing on eBay. Unfortunately, we removed the following item(s):

110392435010 - christian louboutin *boots sz 8

The following information may help explain the reason your listing(s) was removed:

Trademark infringement is unlawful and violates eBay's policies. A trademark is a unique sign (such as a name, word, phrase, logo, or symbol) that a company uses to identify its products and/or services.

Using another company's trademark in a way that may confuse buyers about the source of goods or services, or confuses buyers into believing that the seller is affiliated with, sponsored by or endorsed by the trademark owner is both illegal and against eBay's policies. Examples include counterfeits, unauthorised replica items and items that bear the brand or logo of a company without that company's permission.

Guideline: If the product you are listing bears the brand or logo of a company, but it wasn't made or authorised by that company, don't sell it on eBay. Review of this listing indicates that the item infringes a trademark. It is both against the law and against eBay policy to infringe trademark laws. Due to security around eBay's review processes, the indicating factors cannot be disclosed.

OK, well the message confirms that the item was removed for trademark infringement, and it's probably the most common reason for having listings removed.

As the message indicates, you just can't get away with this sort of thing on ebay any more, they really are all over it!

By some of the names you have indicated as sourcing supplies from, it is clear that you have been sourcing at least some product from China, and straight away you have to know that if it carries a brand it's FAKE!

Branded items cannot be sourced from China, despite what people think. We see the same problem here over and over and over again.

It's hard for me to comment on your own purchase regarding the product that you deemed a fake based on price, but you can't base that decision on price alone.

Let's take designer brand merchandise as an example, there are other avenues to purchase this type of stock outside of wholesale, liquidations being one of them.

Of course I can't really comment on other listings without knowing anything about them, but you will find sellers on ebay with marked down designer products that are quite genuine, and I would suggest, without personally knowing the sellers source, that it would be something like a liquidation dealer.

I have to tread carefully here, and in the interest of full disclosure, I have to indicate that I myself am involved in the liquidation market as a supplier, but as such, do have some idea about what can be sourced, and the prices genuine designer products can be purchased at.

You can sell designer inspired products, and places like China are a good place to look, but the moment you get a fake that carries any authentic licensed branding, you will be infringing on the brand holder's trademark, and be leaving yourself wide open for possible legal action against you.

These are quite simply pirated goods, and if customs get their hands on any imports you will not just loose the load, but risk facing further legal action, not just from customs, but by from the brand holder themselves!

Honestly, you are navigating dangerous waters with where you are currently trying to sail!
