Hi All...this is my first post here and hoping to get what I am looking for in terms of suppliers, customer service and of course meet pros and new business oriented people. But I never thought my first post would be such long and calling for help

I am in a very bad situation right now and need help. So here is the story...2 weeks back I sold 4 ipads as a resale on ebay. I had sourced this scammer from UK and agreed to work with 50% deposit. I was happy he was agreeing to do so ( you can see I am indeed a newbie and learnt a lesson) and paid 50% depostit $800 through western union and never heard back. I already had my buyers money and now paid my own $800 as it would take 3-5 days to transfer from my paypal to ba lost bank acct.
I told them the situation and 3 agreed for a refund and did so.
Now there is 1 buyer from Thailand who does not want money,but ipad.

My Thai buyer had already filed a dispute through paypal and I had to communicate and make him understand and agreed to lift the dispute and funds are now released in my account. ITS A DIE or DO situation for me. I cannot source any new supplier and its very hard to know if they are genuine or not and can't lose any more money or trust.

If any one as a seller,buyer or supplier out there think you can help me and know of any one who can help me in getting 1 3G 32GB+WiFi Unlocked with 1 yr warranty (return policy would be great) that would be great.
I donn't know if Ipads work in Thailand...should it be unlocked or jailbrokec or it really dosnt matter? Any explanation would be good...I really donno what makes it work there :-)

I AM RUNNING OUT OF TIME...PLEASE HELP. I am mentally disturbed so much due to this situation...want to work things out with my non-understanding buyer.

Thanks
somy

Welcome to SaleHoo, Somy :)

You may have read this on the forum several times, but its true that the requirements to source these wholesale are extremely high due to Apple’s desire to protect their brand value. If you want to source these items wholesale, you’ll need to fill out an application on Apple’s website and be able to meet a minimum annual purchase requirement of more than $100,000 and provide 2 business references – among other things. You can read the full requirements here:

Although there is no other way to legitimately source Apple iPhones, iPods and the iPad wholesale except through Apple themselves, you can source Apple accessories from a number of wholesalers and drop shippers. Here is a list of a few SaleHoo suppliers for Apple accessories:

(Don’t forget you need to find the Wholesale section on these supplier’s websites and either fill out an application form or contact them directly to get wholesale prices).

The other option to source Apple products is via liquidators. Liquidators can legitimately resell iPods, iPhones etc, but Apple won’t honor the warranty for products sourced this way.

Some liquidators of Apple products in our directory are:

But for your immediate need, I would suggest visiting Link hidden: Login to view so you can locate the nearest Apple store and be able to buy the unit you need to fulfill your buyers order.

Hope this helps.

As everyone may already know. Hong Kong is a duty free port so iPads are actually cheaper than the prices in U.S.

If you see this comment in a users post:

*******DELETED BY ADMIN*******

It means the user is not a Directory Listed Supplier and they have not been verified. We do not recommend that you make a purchase from this member until they have registered with Link hidden: Login to view as a supplier and have been cleared to sell to SaleHoo members.
