I've read and done some background research on both Buy2Bee & QueenBee of Beverly Hills. There is also another handbag company online called Luxury Wholesale Online of which I am still trying to research. I have read both the for and against reviews of Buy2Bee & QueenBee of Beverly Hills, both on SaleHoo and various postings online. My take is that both of these companies are still operating, even with Queen Bee's one legal problem regarding one high end handbag company's case against them. If their bags were found to be selling illegal replicas, I would think they would have been shut down by now. My concern is with Shopify, which I am seriously considering to use as my website and gateway payment platform. As with other similar platforms, Shopify has it's positive upside and also it's downside. I have heard horror stories about Shopify, abruptly shutting down reseller' s accounts and withholding funds causing some of their subscribers to lose their online business as well as suffer horrific financial and even legal problems. Especially shutting off accounts if they believe you are violating trade mark infringement and selling what they believe are copies of top, brand name, high end handbags. I would like to know if there is anyone who uses Shopify to sell handbags they purchase from Buy2Bee & QueenBee of Beverly Hills and have they had any problems from Shopify from dealing in products from these two distributors of famous brand name handbag? Also, does any know anything about Luxury Wholesale Online in regards to their reputation and dependability and the same question regarding selling their merchandise via Shopify.

Hi Curtis,

Shopify is really no different to any multi-seller platform in regards to how to they deal with accounts. They have all policies in place and it's important to ensure you educate on those policies so you can stay within the trading rules and regulations. As with most of these type of platforms, they can come down very hard on accounts that violate stated policies.

I know a lot of sellers complain when they get jumped on, but it's usually down to the seller ignoring stated polices of the platform and they have the right to shut down the account to protect their own brand.

No matter what supplier you are using, if you're talking about branded products, then always ask for a certificate of authenticity to protect yourself. It's also a good idea to speak to the platform's customer service and tell them the products you are going to be selling and who you will be dealing with in regards to suppliers.

Let them know you have done your due diligence and have certificates of authenticity on the branded products and offer to forward them copies of those up front. If you put everything out on the table up front you will be able to identify any possible issues that you are going to run into and then save yourself before you break any rules.

It's always better to be on the front foot, not just blindly going where you shouldn't go and then getting slammed for it.

Cheers
