Customer Question

My wife has started an eBay business and she has recieved a sample of clothes from a wholesaler. However she was in a retail store today (B&M) and saw some clothes being sold at clearance prices. Is it legal for my wife to buy goods in a shop and resell them on eBay?

Generally, the answer is yes, she can. The only exception is that some designer brands will not allow their products to be resold as new on eBay. From your narrative, however, she would not be prohibited from reselling good from B&M. Happy to discuss further.

Thanks effectively it is the same brand of clothing (Disney) as recieved from the wholesaler. From your response sounds like she can just go ahead and do it.

Absolutely. The source doesn't matter. If she can get it cheaper locally then she should do so. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive response on the system so that I am credited for my time.
