Hi,

I am interested in using a wholesale supplier from the USA named The Perfume Center of America. Has anyone had any dealings with this company and do they know if their perfumes are genuine?

Regards,
Danny

Hi Danny,

They are a SaleHoo-recommended supplier and have been verified to be safe for you to use and to only offer authentic products. If you are unsure though, what I suggest that you do is contact them directly, enquire about the authenticity of their products and request for a proof of authenticity if deemed necessary.

You will find their listing here: Link hidden: Login to view

They don't have any reviews yet, though. I did a Google Search but couldn't find any. So if there's anyone who purchased from this company before and who can provide some feedbacks, it'd be greatly appreciated! :)

Cheers,

Hi Haydee

Just letting you know that the website is very vague, i emailed them and asked them about payment and wether the goods were original all i got back was payment type for me wire tranfser only and avoided the question of wether they were iriginal . I think they may not speak english properly either was the thing i felt too

Regards
Danny

Hi dv8duck,

What specific perfume brands are you looking for?

Have you tried checking out Link hidden: Login to view

They may just have what you're looking for plus a big save on the shipping cost seeing you're based in Australia.

Cheers :)

Hi dv8duck,

Richelle is right, often it's cheaper and easier to buy from local wholesalers. However, if you do wish to stick with US based wholesalers, here are some suppliers that might also be worth checking out:

All of these are US based wholesaler/drop shipper, they deliver worldwide. All the best!

Hi Thanks for your advice but in most cases it is price that dictates where you buy from and in this case australian wholesales dont even rate when it comes to price. After doing all the research and comparisons.

Danny

Hi Danny,

I am also intrested in dealing with this supplier. I have talked with them over the phone and had been exchanging emails. Yes they do advise that wire trasnfer is their method of payment. I would be happy if you can please let me know how you get along. I am still looking for supllier as I am still costing the cost of freight and duty taxes here in NZ but overall I would say yes their prices is really good.

Hi Genelyn

I am really hesitant to deal with the company insists on wire transfer , the problem is wire transfer you pay the money and if you have any problems with them you have no recourse. It is not like we live in africa and is the convenience off doing it with a paypal verified account. I know there prices are pretty good but i emailed them a few times and asked if i could wire transfer to start and maybe later go to a different payment option later such as paypal and credit card . I didnt get satisfaction from them so i have chosen not to deal with them there are other suppliers around just as good.

Regards
Danny

Hi Danny,

I understand your hesitation. We ourselves recommend paying through safe payment methods like PayPal or credit cards. I have contacted the supplier in question and I suggest not dealing with them while we are still doing our investigation.

We will be changing their status to pending while we verify some important details with them and this includes re-confirming the authenticity of their products.

I will see if I can find some more great suppliers that can offer you a good profit margin.

I will update you asap.

Cheers,

Hi Haydee,

Any status on this investigation? I am just rally interested with this supplier and I compared prices and they are good.

In one of their emails to me, they said that their product is 100%authentic and original. Of course I would like to know what happen with your investigation and if this is a real company we are dealing with.

Thanks

Genelyn

Hi Danny and Genelyn,

We have been corresponding with Perfume Center for the past couple of days and they have confirmed that they do accept PayPal and credit cards and there is no way they will avoid questions about authenticity. They are a reputable company and won't do anything to put their business in jeopardy. They have also mentioned that for substantial orders from international customers, they do 'prefer' wire transfer.

I have both sent you PMs so please check your SaleHoo inbox.

Let me know if you have other questions or concerns.

All the best,

Hi Haydee,

Thanks for your reply.

I have got some issues again. Hope you can help me on this.. How can I import branded perfumes as when I asked customs NZ, I was advised that most brands are having trademark restrictions. How do you deal with this issue please. I can buy from perfume centre but the problem is the goods might be seize due to this trademark issues.

Thanks

Hi Genelyn

You are only infring copyright if you are buying fake perfumes i have imported plenty of things and never had a problem if you buy of a legitimate supplier and if you have a commercial invoice for the goods. I was like you started with a smaller order and see how it goes from there.

Regards
Danny

Thanks a lot Danny.

It is really a big help. I have contacted this supplier perfume-centre and they are quite good and straighforward. I actually placed my order and advise them of this problem but its ok with them not to proceed if I am faced with too many problems. I just thought that there is a way as a number of people are importing.

Thanks a lot for your input and goodluck.


regards,

Genie

Hi Carmen,

I have spent quite a long time searching for forum feedbacks online related to Perfume Center of America, but I failed to locate any. I'll try my best to look further and hopefully get inputs from SaleHoo members who have dealt with them. I have to mention that our member was able to confirm details about their payment methods and that she was given assurance by the supplier themselves, I understand however that you are looking for feedbacks from buyers.

Let me know if you need me to provide supplier options.

Have a nice day!


Irene

New Zeland customs is very strict on the authenticity of goods coming in, some members have shared their experience about this - Link hidden: Login to view
