Default Any Luck With iPhone Cases?

Hello,

Has anyone had overwhelming response with iPhone case? I found a seller who had sold 10,000 units of this item in the attachment. The prices on Ali were very high, but after month of research and negation I was able to source 300 units of the case + another 600 units worth of gifts that I give out with the case (Screen Protector, Pens, Cloth etc...). However I've had these units for 2 months, and every week I sell 2-3 or if I'm lucky. Is this normal for cases, given it's an extremely personalized item? I bought these pretty expensive, and don't have much room on the price. Any thoughts, and direction is appreciated.

Well unless you are buying from a legit apple supplier...Your going to be hit with Vero's, MC999's, etc.

I personally would stay away from Apple Cases but in reality it's up to you. I am sure there are a few on the forum who sell them and maybe they can give u some direction.

No logo anywhere on the case. The only thing this item shares to an iPhone is it fits the size of an iPhone 5.

Would not touch it.

No logo still can get hammered as Apple and Ebay both watch every single listing.

Just typing in " Iphone Cases "
You will get hit...
It's tempting, but you'll soon be stuck with a bunch of cases in your storage room

This guy had this same item for sale with 10K sells. He changed his prices, and with his new ad he is pushing 3K sales now: Item Number: 400445259608 . Maybe he is an eBay favorite.

Lol, nowhere close. How do these guys do this where they sell some items from USA, some from China etc... Shady and still push that many items, and under stress free radar. They must be really taking care of eBay. So corrupt.

That seller must be getting them at about $1-$1.25, hope you can compete with them!
Also that case cannot be Aluminum for sure, probably plastic.

I searched low and high for that price. It was almost non-existent.

Since when is there corruption in hard work?

As HWGA said, a tried and trusted account is the key.

Back to your drawing board

You're literally trying to compare yourself to a seller that makes millions of dollars. Hilarious buddy.

I'm confused.
I thought you guys said iPhone cases are tempting with a VeRo violation. No?

So, are you suggesting, that accounts over 2 years old, and 100K in feedback are alowed to sell VeRo items?

Your "tried and true" comments are suggesting something I'm not clear on.

I was selling a certain brand of case with about 7 margin on each alongside iPad cases that matched until there were a load ov VERO takedowns across the board. Made my money by then anyway.

I'm thinking about just bringing my price down, and hopefully dumping these quick.

They don't have any brand. It's 100% generic.
