Hello Guys, i run an eCommerce company and i have been importing products for the last few years. In my opinion, Private labelling is a fantastic business model if you do it properly. I wanted to get your thoughts on the following two scenarios: #1 By using sites like Alibaba you find an existing product you wish to sell under your own brand.

Recategorization is a DISASTER for THOUSANDS of eBay SELLERS. Their sales have plummeted. IT IS NOT A GOOD BUYER EXPERIENCE IF BUYERS ARE NOT BUYING.

It is the experience of thousands of eBay Sellers. I need to sell on many other platforms because than eBay. eBay has been DOWN GRADED. DO NOT HOPE. Complain to eBay about th
