How to buy sneakers in bulk?
- Buy Local
When you’re thinking of buying in bulk you should first search for some local wholesalers who deal in sneakers. The advantage of this would be that you’ll be able to check if the sneakers are authentic and you can buy in bulk from them.
Searching for local wholesalers who deal in authentic sneakers could be tough and you might get ripped off with fakes.
- Individual Sellers
There are plenty of individuals out there who sell kicks in bulk. They might not be the latest kicks but the latest enough that you can profit from them. The benefit of individual sellers is that you can purchase in bulk from them and don’t forget to check for authenticity.
The majority of retailers that release highly anticipated shoes will have measures in place to prevent a single individual from obtaining numerous pairs. This is referred to as a “one pair per customer” policy.
Footsites is a good place to start (Footlocker, Footaction, Champs Sport and Eastbay). Although all of these sites are owned by the same company, they function separately. While you won’t be able to use the same payment information to get numerous pairs from Footlocker, you will still be able to buy more from other Footsites.
In most cases, if you buy a pair of new Air Jordan 1s at Footlocker, you can also buy them at Footaction using the same card and billing profile. Furthermore, Footsites recognize men’s and GS sizes as two separate goods, allowing you to purchase one men’s and one GS pair from the same Footsite using the same payment information.
How to buy in bulk from any site?
In the sneaker reselling business, there will come a time where you would want to maximize profit, and to do that you’ll need to cop more pairs. As mentioned above we can’t use the same billing profile to purchase more than one limited-edition sneaker. To tackle this we use the jiggling method.
The jiggling method is when you rotate your billing profiles in such a manner that the website thinks your billing profile belongs to a totally different user. To achieve that we can follow these steps:
- Using unique cards which means if you have 4 different cards you can have 4 different billing profiles
- Create a unique email address for every profile. If you’re a student .edu email addresses look legit.
- Using different phone numbers for each profile
- You can also use different billing addresses by providing your friends and family address for every profile.
Even if you complete all of the instructions above, there is still a chance that your orders will be canceled if you attempt to cop more than one pair, especially if you’re using the same address.
We advise you to test different methods until you discover the right one that works. Furthermore, if you want to be up to date with the latest drops that can make you profits and other tips and tricks for copping then check out our Cook Group.
