Designer handbags are a fashion must have, but our wallets do not generally appreciate the expense. Having one handbag is essential, but with a diverse wardrobe you really need more than one. But how does one afford such accessories?More and more consumers are looking to find that great deal on brand name merchandise. These are often the people most likely to fall prey to scams and purchase fake and poor quality products. They are searching in flea markets, kiosks, home parties, and anywhere else they may find a designer bag for a discounted price.As a retailer of wholesale designer merchandise, the best way to become truly successful is to sell authentic, top quality, brand name bags at the best possible price. That price may still be well over a hundred dollars, but if you are selling it for less than your competition – customers will come.There are many reasons to really do your research and make certain you are selling the real deal. If you are selling fake product and your audience figures it out – you better believe the word will get out. Once they begin to talk to one another, and post commentary online, your business will be the one to suffer.Knock off bags use workmanship and poor materials such as bad leather, poor stitching, seams that are off, and designs that do not match or are unsymmetrical. Portions of the bag will wear out more quickly such as the handles, zippers and lining. Many fake bags are easy to spot simply because they are so poorly made.Not only are suppliers making money off of selling this kind of fake merchandise, they are often doing this under the table and not paying any taxes on it. No consumer wants to place their hard earned money into the hands of scam artists, hustlers and swindlers.If you are truly considering a career in selling designer handbags wholesale, do yourself a favor and make sure you are selling authentic bags. If you are having a hard time finding a legitimate wholesale or dropship company to work with then try out an online wholesale directory, like Salehoo, to narrow down your options.
