NFL Restricting 3rd Party Online Sales?
« on: April 09, 2016, 11:36:56 AM »
From what I was just reading, including an email from a wholesaler, the NFL is blocking 3rd party vendors from selling official NFL products online.  They're saying that online vendors can only sell NFL licensed products on sites where the vendor owns the domain name (you can sell on your own website, but not on Amazon; Amazon themselves can sell on Amazon.com; etc)

Of course, you could still sell as used and on eBay, but if you're buying the stuff wholesale (as opposed to retail arbitrage), you'll risk losing your ability to continue buying it wholesale.  On Amazon, it wouldn't surprise me if they falsely file counterfeit complaints with Amazon, thus causing one's account to be suspended.

Thanks.
I often run across NFL/Sports items and often just resort to eBay to sell them.
Figured it was in my best interest, rather than using Amazon.
I guess my gut instinct was right.

I've done well with NFL licensed items on Amazon, but I guess that'll be a thing of the past, now. :(
