Far too many people have unrealistic expectations about how much wholesale mobile phones should cost which unfortunately means they’re vulnerable to being scammed. If you follow the advice in this article you will be well equipped to start sourcing mobile phones online.

Below are some extremely useful tips for those who are looking to source wholesale mobile phones.


Tips for Sourcing Wholesale Mobile Phones

  • Know Where to Look – ¬†This is extremely important. Far too many people will immediately look overseas to source mobile phones and this is usually not a good idea. A lot of people simply assume that because mobile phones such as the iPhone are manufactured in China that ti will be the best place to source them. This is simply not the case. There are an awful lot of scammers in China and it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to source mobile phones any cheaper than you would in the UK. Bear in mind that there are no Official Apple wholesalers in China, the UK or US.
  • Keep Your Expectations Realistic – The best way to avoid being scammed is to be aware of what prices you can expect to pay when buying mobile phones at wholesale. For new models such as the iPhone 5s and Galaxy S4 the price you pay will only be fractionally smaller than what you would pay for at retail. Knowing this will save you a lot of time trying to source phones at unrealistically low prices.
  • Always Pay Securely – Any legitimate wholesaler of mobile phones will allow you to pay in a secure, trackable way so if anything was to go wrong with the order, you’ll be able to claim your money back.
