Deciding to sell wholesale designer handbags can be tricky. There is a reason there is such a demand for designer handbags at wholesale prices. That is because they can be so expensive, are often fakes and many companies prey on people who do not know any better.
Anywhere you see high demand you will find people out to make a quick buck. It is a time consuming process to locate a legitimate, high-quality designer handbag at a decent price. There are many scam artists out there either trying to sell fake bags, or to sell the bags for high profit. This is the main reason that if you do your research and sell real, high quality designer handbags you can be very successful.
One brand name that is sought after is the Burberry bag. Burberry bags have a recognizable plaid pattern and are carried by celebrities making them a hot ticket item for purchasers of designer bags. In this economy, however, few are looking to pay retail prices on luxury items.
When purchasing Burberry merchandise wholesale it can be difficult to tell a real Burberry from a fake one. Here are some things to watch for:
1. Material: The material for the two most popular bags, Nova Check and Classic Check, is PVC. This material is also known as vinyl coated canvas. It looks like leather but feels different. The material is strong and resists stains.
2. Pattern: A distinguishing feature of Burberry bags is the pattern. They have a striped pattern that goes both vertically and horizontally. If the lines are not one done well (crooked, faded, not symmetrical) then it is a good chance it is a fake. There should not be any bleeding colors. Basically, if it does not look like good quality or is badly sewn or stitched – avoid it.
3. Tag: The inside tag color should match the lining color. Underneath the tag should be a stamp that says MADE IN ITALY with a serial number.
4. Zipper: On both sides of the zipper the word BURBERRY should be stamped.
There is no way to guarantee you are getting the real thing unless you deal directly with the designer, but keeping an eye out for small details really helps.
When choosing a wholesaler or dropshipper, look for a company that offers a 100% money back guarantee. If the supplier truly believes they are working with authentic merchandise, they will not hesitate to offer a guarantee for their products.
To help narrow down your wholesale choices, consider using an online directory – like Salehoo – to find reputable wholesalers. Once you find a wholesaler that is offering the real deal at great prices you have got it made.
