Don’t Get Ripped Off Buying Replicas Online.
How I got started.
Almost ten years ago I began purchasing clothing from China. After a few tries and some bad purchases, I found a supplier that I could count on. I dealt with Allen for six years and we became good friends. We developed a system where I’d get credit for the clientele I brought him through my blogs and YouTube videos. Together we sold a lot of clothing online and everyone I knew wanted me to help him or her order something.
Five years ago, without any warning I wasn’t able to reach Allen and haven’t heard from him since. After that I quit buying clothing from China completely. Although I still know the best market to shop from and can lead you in the right direction. There’s always a risk when buying designer Inspired online as well as maybe a moral dilemma, but if your interested continue reading and I’ll share some more facts and tips on where to find the best quality, for the lowest price.
Anytime I buy replicas online they are from China's Guangdong province. The market of Guangzhou capital of Guangdong, is the best when buying designer inspired clothing and accessories. Although the Yiwu market in Zhejiang province is the largest market in China, Guangdong is the largest provincial economy and has the best factories. There are over 60,000 factories that generate 300 million worth of goods a day. Yiwu market sells mostly gift and decorative type items. It does have clothing and an assortment of other products but when ordering clothing from China you have a better chance of getting quality and a deal from Guangzhou.
How I've Ordered
I’ve found it easier and more cost effective to find an individual from Guangzhou, who shops these markets for me, rather than using a wholesale distributor. Here are a couple of the many markets they may shop at: Xindadi, mainly sells woolen sweaters and cardigans. Zhanxi, a shopping street of many wholesale markets, Tianm, famous for domestic brand clothes, Hongmian Bubuga, known for its women's clothing, Hongyung, the leather market.
There is a chance you will get ripped off using my method, but there’s a better chance you’ll receive a product your satisfied with. Sending a money order to a complete stranger in a developing country isn’t easy. I’ve been lucky that every time I’ve ordered, the product has come through. Since I've ordered so much I have gotten a few bad items, but they were very few and far between. For your first order send the minimum they’ll accept which is usually 40usd.
I can’t give you any names of individual suppliers or wholesalers but all you need to do is type Guangzhou market into Google to find wholesalers, or go to Picasa galleries to find a distributor. You’ll see emails posted in the comments of Picasa as well as other photo galleries. Email one and ask them the price for each item you’re interested in. Be patient, as they'll most likely be using broken English.
Is There a Microchip in Your Clothing?
At first it sounds a little crazy, more likely a conspiracy than reality, but more luxury brands are putting microchips inside their clothing and at alarming rate. IPhones are now able to identify knock off clothing for the benefit of both consumers and retailers. Some companies like Moncler have put RFID chips in all if their products, while others are slowly incorporating them into their clothing lines. More than half of US retailers already use RFID inside their stores.
Their hasn’t been any technology developed that has made RFID responders completely undetectable to consumers yet. Companies have been putting them on hand tags that can be cut off buy the consumers. This will soon change as Nottingham Trent University in the UK unveiled a prototype for embedding RFID chips into yarns. Advanced E-Textiles are bringing to market these thread sized RFID chips that can be washed and are undetectable. Some companies are already hiding chips in products such as shoes and furniture and they have no legal requirement to tell costumers their products are chipped.
The reason more companies aren’t using this technology now is the cost of cataloging, chipping and identifying all their products is a considerable investment. As this technology advances and as the price decreases more companies will get onboard. It’s estimated that between 2016-2020 RFID industry will net 17 billion dollars. China has the largest production base for RFID and represents approximately 70% of the Worlds total.
Do you believe its WRONG to import knock off items from Developing Countries?
Years ago I bought a hundred of these glowing baseball hats for 7usd each. I’d give them away as gifts and sell them to friends. The Guangzhou Market has everything you can think of and is not limited to clothing and fashion accessories. I’ve also bought bedding, DVD sets, led lights, makeup and more.
