Why buy reps from China

The purpose of reps is clear: Good looking or rare items for a cheaper price. But why from China? Most local rep-sellers buy from China themselves and just take their cut of the deal. Usually to maximize their profit they go with the lowest priced rep possible. With the help of Reparchive you can find products that match your quality and price expectations and read reviews and compare to items. With Superbuy you also have to chance to exchange or refund your item before shipping it. You can then easily order it to your doorstep. Follow the guide below to find out how!
