Default Chinese wholesalers are expensive

The price of chinese phones and tablet is becoming expensive to be CHINESE materials with no prestigious brand.
A phone costs 60€ and some of them reach 160 €.
A samsung with the same features in my city cost 65€... which is the saving? 5€ and which is the earning for me?
Chinese sellers are becoming too smart for me.
The complete step-by-step guide to get back to selling today!

You need to look for another supplier then. There is plenty of competition so unless the manufacturers are in collusion then the price will be fair market.

Non branded chinese tablets and phones are junk, same with the prestigious brand ones, you'll be lucky to break even, time to break out the brandy and do a little more searching..

I have tested these waters and it is no place to be for small operators. In fact, you will always find lower prices at retail from the big boys than what the wholesalers will offer you. If you arent buying 1000s of units in one shot then dont waste your time.

Sandy - I see your point, however I am nearly 5 more expensive than a few of my competitors, but guess what? My service is far superior and I am receiving more sales than them daily.

I even started selling after gethering the idea to sell this product.

That is cool.

"Sometimes" price is not everything.

I notice many of the foreign listings have horrific pictures and of course some US or UK buyer dont want to buy direct from Hong Kong etc.

I am lucky enough to have a DH gate seller ( non branded items of course ) close to me so I dont have to deal with most of what others do.

Product is priced so I can make a profit etc. Nice to be able to just get into the van and go pick up whatever you need.

And they dont turn around and sell on ebay to compete back against me like most foreign sellers do.
