Hi.

I am trying to source some "Zumba" products. The equipment and DVDs. (It is a dance/fitness activity)
I would prefer to dropship but may buy wholesale if thats not possible. I tried a search in the directory but found nothing. It asks if I mean Rumba but that is diferent.
Is there any Zumba suppliers?
Thanks
Liam

I've been looking for the same thing. From what I've been reading you need to actually contact Zumba directly.

They do not allow their products to be sold on eBay, and they proactively remove auctions with their products for sale.

I'm curious if anyone else has any further info on Zumba.

Thanks,
Jared

I actually talked to the Zumba people a few months back and the only way to get their products is to be an instructor. I sourced some from china and received a letter from their legal representation when i tried to sell them on ebay and it was not a nice letter so be careful

Hi profits,

We've done searches for past requests but like dirlok has mentioned you will have to contact Zumba directly. There seems to be no legit wholesale distributor for this product. For contact details please refer to this post -

I managed to source some zumba kits from China which looked 100% genuine but you can never truly tell.. regardless the profit margins were great but then Zumba threatened me with a law case saying I couldn't provide a receipt of purchase to authenticate the products being genuine or not.

So rule of thumb, Most products on TV will get you into trouble on eBay as the VERO team will remove and suspend you from eBay.

They don't deal with small consumers they have huge licences and trademark laws to prosecute anyone that goes under the table. I also believe that they will take you to court if you continue to sell their products without approval.

Many thanks.
I thought this might be a good seller for christmass but gave it up as a bad job. Thanks for everything on this but I think its a no no.

Good realization bcurko :)

We have received so many search requests for Zumba products and up to this day they remain the only legal distributor of their products.

You're lucky they did not take you court but many brand owners can and will. So best be careful when selling branded products especially if you source them from China. Remember that you can't buy anything authentic from China!

Happy Holidays!
