Adorama & Ebay?

  1. Im looking for a better/bigger camera bag. On Adorama's main website I found the Lowepro X350 AW for $249. I also found the exact same bag on Adorama's Ebay page im guessing, for $189. Is this a fake seller posing as Adorama? Im afraid to pull the trigger on a deal that almost seems too good to be true....
     
  2. Adorama does have 4 Ebay accounts; if you'd like to email me directly Helen@adorama.com, with a link to the item, I'll check it out for you.

  3. The ebay seller who has the bag shown for $189.95 as item number 320797092181 lists 25,817 items for sale under the Adorama banner. That would be a LOT of items for a fraudulent person to list. An outfit the size of Adorama at least has a law firm that they do regular business with and might even have in-house counsel. If a faker was using the Adorama name for 25,000+ items, Adorama’s lawyer would have been all over them in a New York minute.
     
  4. What are the names of the ebay stores that Adorama sells their products under? I am going to be upgrading my dslr and buying a new lens in the next couple of months and I would like to get the best price possible. Plus I would like to save them under favorite sellers on my ebay account.
     
  5. Just marking this page so I can get alerts. I am curious of the outcome. Thanks Ernest.

  8. Make sure you ask why it is so heavily discounted before buying. I don't know if there is such thing as "grey market Lowepro", or if that would even bother you or not... but sometimes grey market products are delivered but not specified in the ad. If it is just a "close-out" pricing... take advantage of it fast before they run out of what you want.

  10. Thank you Helen!
     
  11. Helen is wonderful and typifies Adorama's commitment to customer care. She is currently helping me with another
    purchase.

    All items sold by Adorama which are 'grey market' ie direct import, are labelled as such on all our sites, and in every case carry a warranty with terms and conditions which are identical in every respect to items not classified as such.
    The only difference, being that you would return the Adorama for warranty service / repair / replacement.

    Thank you so much - you made my day!

  13. I've purchased items from Adorama on ebay (one a refurbished Nikon point and shoot digital camera that arrived in the white Nikon box, a gift for my nephew) and had excellent service. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with them again in the future.
