They are high quality genuine leather replicas with original package, you will have no regret.

Chinese based company, been trading online since 2008. A few things bother me straight up front, we have two managers names, depending where you look. The website has Emma as the manager, your email has Jennifer, not a good start.

No real contact information available, it's all computer based correspondence. One thing about only having computer based correspondence, it's very easy to be ignored if an issue does evolve.

You seem to understand that the products are replicas ok, however what sort of replica are we talking about here. There can be a massive difference between designer inspired and replicas.

If these items are branded, as their site seems to suggest, then that's bad news, seriously bad news!

I find it strange that there doesn't seem to be any payment information on the site, but they have indicated in the email that they do accept PayPal.

For me, I would be taking a single item sample order first before throwing money at them should you decide to go ahead with any purchase, but just understand that you will be dealing with a Chinese company and fake brand name items.

You really need to clarify what you are getting, because if they are exact replicas, then I can only advise to stay well clear, even of a sample order.

Welcome to SaleHoo, Jordi :)

fudjj has pointed out very important points in his post and personally, I would not buy from this supplier. I had a look and it seems they are selling replicas although marketed to be the real deal. Getting the real deal from this supplier may be next to impossible especially since they are based in Fujian, China.

I tried doing a mock purchase just to see what payment methods they accept since as fudjj noted there is no mention about it anywhere on the site. But when I clicked on add this to my cart, my screen just went blank! Definitely NOT a good sign...

Also, they only give you web based email addresses, legitimate companies will provide their customers with a domain based email address, a physical address and a working phone number. At least you know where to find them in anything goes wrong.

I hope this helps.

she repleyed on my email:

Hi dear,

Firstly, that's true, we deal with replicas, and i am honest, i tell you truth, never said we deal with genuines.

Secondly, why jennifer is not a good start, we do business with foreigner, we need english name so that you remember us easily. My Chinese name is Dan Xu. Dan in China is grils name.

Thirdly, our address is true. and we accept paypal, if i ask you to use other payment method, you can refuse to send payment, right?

Yes, it is the first time that we do business, so you can try small quantity to test the quality. It is understandable. That's why we have no MOQ and sell one or two at wholesale price as well.

Anyway, we are honest vendor, yes, all computer based correspondence, but isn't it the feature of all online business? not only our company.

I have many costomer is UK, US, Australia and Spain. I can understand he has so many suspection that's because he is not familiar with this market.

Is he a experienced businessman who import goods abroad every month? Is he familiar with foreign factory and markets.

It's good that she actually replied to your email and that she was honest enough to admit that their products are imitations.

But please note that selling imitation products has serious consequences so I would not recommend that you do. It's just too risky. Unless you are based in a country that does not have strict laws against selling counterfeit products.

All the best!
