      Buying Iphone cases with Apple Logo from China

      I am wanting to buy wholesale Iphone Cases with the Apple Logo from China. Anyone know if this is even possible? Can I find a way to make sure that the cases are really from Apple? Any help?

      First off, anything coming from China is likely to be a fake, at least as far as name brand things. Apple products are all made in China of course, but Apple exercises great control over their products, and generally you will be able to tell if the supplier is giving you something that is legit or fake. And, keep in mind it is hard to find legit name brand stuff that is coming from China. It is a problem we have discussed elsewhere here, and I don’t think it is any different for the product that you are looking for.

      What if it just has the logo shape cut out of the Iphone case? Is that still a problem with copyrights?

      Yea, I think that would still be a problem with copyrights. Not 100 percent sure, but I think so. Anything that is unbranded but has something that depicts something similar to the original logo is pretty questionable. Just think of it this way: if customs found the product you are shipping, would they think that it was an unbranded product or would they think that it is a fake trying to pretend to be legit? If you think it is the latter, then beware, if they find it, they will destroy it, and it could cause problems for you down the road.

      Anything that is not an original and has anything like the logo on it is a copyright infringement, definitely.

      Again, other forums have discussed this before, but I can go over this again. Name brand products that come from China are often fake. You have to be very careful with name brands from China. If you are getting stuff that is not name brand, no name jeans or just some cheap guitar, then China is a great place to go as your supplier. But the problem with name brand stuff, particularly products whose logo’s and brands are so well known, is that, if they come from China, it is so hard to know whether or not they are fake. At least until they arrive at your door and you can really look at them closely.

      It is best to just not get anything that might infringe on copyrights. Customs is on the lookout for those items, and they will destroy them if they find them. Why not go for an unbranded Iphone case?

      Yea, just go for unbranded ones, there are a lot less hassle and they are just as good. With Ebay, people are looking for cheap things, and unbranded is the way to get the cheap things.

      I’ve considered going with an unbranded Iphone case, but the thing is, there are so many of those, it is hard to compete on price.

      I think I have seen fakes selling on Ebay. How do those guys get through?
