Just curious if people buy iPod copies and/or iPod similar units. Post your thoughts.

I don't mind copies, they're better than the original in features but not in quality. The thing is, though, they're harder to sell. Remember, that iPods are also a fashion accessory, so everyone always likes to have the original stuff when they brag to their friends.

I found that you get more profit with the original since eBayers like originals but from what I've seen copies sell well at certain markets. I'm setting up a market stall next month so I'll see how that goes.

Hey Dowdy, let me know how that goes I'm getting ready to do the same thing. I purchased several of the fake iPods for $50 off of DHgate. I heard of some guys selling these at the markets for over $180. I wonder if there's competition with these at the markets? Also, you probably have to rent out some space. Anyways let me know how it goes. Good luck!

Renting out space is cheap. $4 per foot of table.

Hey that's cheaper than I thought. All I need is enough space for a card table and chair :wink: I'll probably order ten of these mp4 players and see what I can sell them for. I'm only paying $52.00 a piece for them and they look identical to the iPod Nano's, maybe even better once you've got videos playing on them.

Do you need a reseller's license or anything when selling at a flea market?

Let me know how things go and good luck.

You shouldn't need a license and keep in mind the shipping on those $52 iPod fakes are like $27!

I usually order 10 at a time and shipping for all of them is only about $40.00. Not so bad when you look at it like that. $4.00 for each for shipping from china!

However I just found a supplier that can get me brand new 1gb Ipod nano's for $105.00 so I might start selling these instead. :wink:

When you sell the Mp4 players at a market, how much do you mark them up? What are most people willing to pay?
