Are they legit? Can I sell their DVD's on eBay to customers from the US?

Best regards

http://www.dvdorderonline.com
I personally wouldn't order from this site; that being said it looks like there are at least a couple of reviews on one of the products, but it's hard to say whether or not they're legit. Link hidden: Login to view
Whois says that it's a couple years old, I dunno.

I would never order from here. The english is absolutely terrible and if you look in the contact us section, they're giving you a gmail.com email address? This is either a very shady operation or a very small one, either way are you willing to risk giving them your money?

Maybe I'm just paranoid but this one doesn't look legit either. There's no trustmarks of any kind on the page, no physical address or email address given anywhere. I'd pass.

Shady. Click on the "contact us" section; again, no physical address, phone number, or anything, just a hotmail address. Look at the copyright at the bottom, no date or company name. In the "about us" section they claim to have received the bizrate circle of excellence "in addition to top customer ratings on many famous sites". Funny, I can't seem to find any mention of them at all on bizrate, or anywhere, and it sounds to me like they're just making stuff up. I'd pass.

These guys look legitimate but I strongly suspect that these DVDs might be pirated given how much talk about how their goods are from China. Not sure how well that'll work out for you on ebay. From the looks of it, they only take paypal, GC, and wire transfer. In other words they weren't able to qualify for a real merchant account. They do have a blog and an affiliate program thought... weird. I don't know, my verdict? Amateurs who might ship pirated materials.

No contact information on the site, they only accept paypal and there are no trustmarks to be found on the site anywhere. I'd pass.

No way. Scroll down, left hand column and look at the McAfee SECURE trustmark, see how the date below that says Tested 11-July? Yeah, that's supposed to be either today or yesterday's date. Someone took a screenshot of a real trustmark and uploaded it as a fake onto this site to try and fool you. At least this one has contact information... in Hong Kong. How much you want to bet these DVDs are pirated? Yeah... no product reviews either. No dice.

www.dvdcollects.com
I think this one might actually be legitimate. Looks like it was made by an ebay powerseller of some kind.

Just my thoughts

I tried the number fot DVDCollects and it was not working also the live help system is not working. When I see the prices it makes me think China bootleg. I would not use them.

@vandaexpress and dmdiscounts: Thanks for the help guys! Greatly appreciated! =D

And vandaexpress, welcome to SaleHoo - great to have you!

@rodshop10: I went through the sites you listed, generally I would agree on what vandaexpress has outlined for you. Most of the sites you listed are Chinese suppliers and for sure you'll get nothing but bootleg copies from them plus you may get a few headaches from eBay :)

Here are a few general things you should watch out for when you are searching for suppliers:

1. Run a whois check on the supplier's website to verify when it was created (it is safest to deal with suppliers who have been online at least a year), who owns the domain, and where the domain was registered (the country should match the contact details on the supplier's website). We recommend using Link hidden: Login to view (replace salehoo.com with the url of the supplier).

2. Search the SaleHoo forum for the supplier's website/company name and see what other members have to say.

3. Call the supplier's telephone numbers to ensure they are genuine. Check that they provide you substantial contact information, email address, phone number and a physical address would be great too!

4. Purchase a sample before bulk ordering to ensure that the item meets your expectations.

5. Watch out for sellers asking you to "safeguard" your purchase by sending your money transfer in the name of a friend or loved one, or by establishing a "test question". These actions will not protect you from a fraudulent seller.

6. Low prices do not necessarily mean fraud, but radically low prices should warrant a closer look. If a price seems to good to be true, it probably is. Ask the seller as many questions about the item's authenticity as you can before you go any further.

7. Always use a credit card or Paypal to purchase goods. These forms of payment are safe because they give you a comeback if something goes wrong. With these payment methods, you can usually have the transaction reversed fairly easily if necessary.

Hope that helps.

Cheers! :)
