OK, this little thread is for those that know of suppliers that while offer their services to you off ebay, will then sell against you on ebay themselves.

Now it's not illegal or anything, but it's getting harder and harder to find suppliers, especially when drop shipping, that don't turn around and then compete against you on ebay in particular.

This isn't about saying don't use these suppliers, it's about providing the information as a guide, then you should make your own decision based on your own research.

Please indicate which ebay they are selling on also, be it USA, AUS, UK and so on, so members know where the competition is.

So we'll kick this thread off with one that Don knows of, and then jump on in everyone, but don't just take a guess, please make sure you have your facts right so others don't get put off.

Hey Mark,

okay I know this also may not be true true proof but are you aware of HOTBUY4U also known name Premier Products International?????
or anybody???

I did some dirt today and found out that they just might be selling all of their electronic products off their supply site Link hidden: Login to view

They go by the name 'Awakening-Ministries-Thrift-Store' on eBay. The only reason I say this is them is because their address that they state in their about me page is the same as their website address they also show a picture of their warehouse from the outside both on hotbuy4u.com and on their ebay about me page...I know there are alot of other members on here that have used HOTBUY$U or Premier Products International but guys this company might be selling on ebay too!

Interesting one don, I don't know of them personally, but I read that some do use them, not sure if that's on ebay or not.

Yeah, no great surprise mate, just about everyone is these days. Mind you they may well have even better deals on ebay that they offer on their site.

i checked out what via is selling on ebay. looks like the same deals they have on their website, tho i didnt compare prices

that doesnt bother me to much b/c their selling in large lots, if via was breaking the stuff down and selling them individualy then that would make me a little disgruntled. no way could you compete w via trading on ebay

Yeah, the fact that they seem to be auctioning off stock loads could be a real positive, but as long as they aren't breaking their loads down (which they won't) they are selling to a dealers market.

Just keep your eyes out for some sweet deals and try to cash in : )

Hi,

This not a drop shipper but its a wholesale electronics seller here in California.
Link hidden: Login to view

They sell there merchandise as 'The Geeks on ebay' Here's the kicker when you buy from evertek you need to buy a min of $100 or your charged $10 extra, You can go to there store on ebay & they are selling there merchandise for as little as a couple of buck above there sellling price at Evertek. This is what gets me upset. Not only that they compete with there resellers on Amazon & Buy.com.
& a Geeks website .Link hidden: Login to view
So its hard to compete with this wholesale reseller. They call themselves a Wholesaler & they require a sellers permit to buy from them.

Bare in mind guys, just because they will compete against you on ebay, they are still a legit supplier. Not everyone sells on ebay, and these suppliers that compete against you there may be fine to supply for another market.

Weekend market stalls, own website, that type of thing. This thread is just to make people aware that these companies are on ebay, so if that is the market someone wants to sell on, they need to really research if these suppliers that will sell against them are the best option for them.

Another like OO in Oz are Deals Direct, long time ebayers!

I dont see why its bad for a supplier to try and sell in any venue he or she can. Buy deep stock the merchandise and get to marketing use all tools open to succeed. Your job may depend on it.

Hey Wholesalejoe,


We are talking about suppliers that are also selling against their resellers on eBay which in return is a dead end to actually beat their suppliers in price advantage....has nothing to do with suppliers selling in other venues its just not so good if the reseller doesnt have a price power to work with.

I am pretty sure the people at Premier who has the url

they have a fleet of EBAY sellers who work using them as a dropshipper and I have used them myself since 1999
