Hello,

I have read several times in the Community Forum that we should avoid purchasing branded items from China because they are likely not authentic.

In the Seller Training Center the training video “Importing from China” states that we should avoid buying branded items from China based suppliers but branded items from Hong Kong are often legitimate and authentic.

There is a wholesaler that I found in your Wholesale Directory that offers to dropship branded items. This wholesaler is Universal Drop-Shipping Limited – UDS and they are located in Hong Kong. Can you give me any feedback on this company and the authenticity of the branded items that they offer?

Regards,

Yes, fully verified member and safe to trade with. In fact we reviewed them only last month as part of our over all ongoing review process.

Great. Thank you very much!

Would you happen to know if Red Hare LTD is still open for business? I tried to contact them via email and skype several times but they have not responded.

Hello Larry,

I have checked their site and they are still in business.

Remember that like all businesses, suppliers do close at night and during the weekends. Most suppliers operate 8am-5pm Monday to Friday.

Phone is often a much more effective way of contacting suppliers than email. Suppliers often have a backlog of support emails to deal with, so it may take a few days for them to get back to you. Whereas with phone, you get priority straight away.

If the supplier still hasn't contacted you after 3 business days, please let us know again so we can contact them for you.

Hope this helps.
