Sarah who lives in the Philippines does sell fashion items from high-end designers. Ranging from leather bags, luxury watches to shoes. Sarah’s customers come from America, the Philippines, Macau, to Malaysia.
Sarah often gets caught by clients ordering Hermes shopping boxes and bags. At first Sarah thought that it was another shop or online shop who ordered the shopping bag, but it wasn’t.
“I didn’t know at first, but it turns out they bought for photos on Instagram until I saw them in person,” Sarah said.
Sarah admitted that she once received an order from one of the Philippines influencers with 20 thousand followers. Sarah says that shopping boxes and bags aren’t bought in-store, but from online shops like Sarah or eBay.
