To buy or not to buy

I am looking for a company to buy wholesale from and then sell on eBay. I found this one wholesaler distributor from
China at and I want to know if anyone here has bought from them before or if anyone knows anything
about them? I was thinking about trying some of the lighters they sell, and are
these lighters ok to sell on eBay?

I haven't looked at the sites you mention because I've no idea whether they are safe or whether they are full of dangerous malwear. But you need to be aware there are thousands of Chinese sites which are selling non-existent goods. You pay them and receive nothing. A good starting point is but it may not be up to date.

Personally I would leave well alone. You could try wholesalers in your own country as that is much safer. But selling lighters on eBay won't make you a fortune. After eBay & Paypal have taken their slices what you're left with won't be worth the effort in my view.

have to agree with enthusiast selling low value stuff on eBay means that they and paypal will make more than you do,most of the time the low profit left after they have had a dabble means there's no money left.I have tried some 99p reserve auctions on eBay to attract buyers in but unless the bids are going to improve I'll knock it on the head soon.Its only OK if you are genuinely clearing out old stock etc.
As for wholesalers,you are better off using ones over here and dealing face to face in the first instance.There are a lot of dodgy sites and unfortunately for the genuine ones a lot seem to be from the far east.
