Shoes and Handbags are the worst possible categories in regards to fraud and counterfeiting. Even selling on Ebay well cause your account to go under a VERO review due to the massive degree of counterfeiting for brands such as Louis Vuitton, Salvatore Ferragamo, Prada, Fendi & others.
There are very few legal and authorized resellers of brands like these so retail arbitrage is almost impossible. There is still a massive amount of money to be made though as there are 1,000’s of brands of designer Handbags, Shoes & Sunglasses that won’t cause these problems. We even feature a lot of these types of items on our retail arbitrage lists
There are also many opportunities for private label products that have some amazing markups.
In general 80% or more of Handbags, Shoes & Sunglasses are NOT brand restricted.
