Hello all,

Well I am new to this so looking for some answers and advice.

I am trying to source a good supplier of GENUINE / ORIGINAL apple products (ipod touch, iphone etc). I don't want fakes or chinese copies.

I have been inundated with offers from China for genuine apple items but how can I be sure?

I've asked for pics, and also asked directly if they are original or fakes. Some are up front and say they sell copies (but are very good sir!). Any suggestions on a good honest supplier?

I also see a lot of people asking about sending money. Of about 20 wholesalers I have contacted, only one took paypal, but not on electronic goods. It seems to me that the usual method of payment for a serious wholesaler is via western union or some other form of wire transfer?

Thanks for any assistance on this.

Colin

If you're wanting to buy original Colin, then you will definately not source the products in China, no matter what you are told.

These products are only sold under licence from apple themselves, and while a lot of people all seem to think that there is some magic place where you can get these products cheaper than an apple reseller, well...it just doesn't happen!

Sorry mate : (

thanks fudjj,

I thought as much from China. I have also been approcahed by other companies from other countries that actually seem a lot more legit. With full websites offering other products from Nokia, Samsung, Motorola etc, I feel a lot more confident buying from these companies. Any thoughts?

without knowing the companies you speak off, I couldn't coment, but I don't think you can go past contacting apple themsaleves, and getting the info you require staright from them.

Hi All

I spend the last two weeks with sellers from different well know websites for suppliers.

But PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DONT ACCEPT ANY OFFER From those sellers forceing you to pay in Western Union I lost over 3000 AUD already with such sellers, it was really very hard lesson for me.

Be carful as well on DHgate 99.99% of the sellers they are offering you the product with good price then you place an order, then they waste your time and get back to you says it's not enough money, if you want the product order it outside DHgate and there justification is DHgate apply high fees with the seller.

I send 400 AUD for PS3 through Western Union to one of the seller after two day of chasing him to get the tracking number he said send me more money this is not enough.

So, guys please be careful with Chinese seller accepting Western Union only.

If the seller is a serious to do business, seller should accept paypal which is the most secure payment system for the time being.

So, take extra care, I'm sharing experience cost me over 3000 AUD in 2 weeks time before Xmas.
