    So far good experience with them. I believe they all accept paypal or have some sort of escrow payment service which protects you.

    Aliexpress provides an escrow service, so there is no risk involved. Your payment will only be released to the buyer if you confirm that you have received the items

    If you contact the suppliers on aliexpress, I'm pretty sure most of them will offer dropship services. I don't think it's that bad, because of the escrow service.

    i used them a lot about 2 years ago, but about a year ago they stopped accepting paypal, so it became too much hassle to deal with.

    you set up a shop with items from aliexpress, choose the price you want. if customer buys from you you order from aliexpress with shipping address from customer. Pretty simple however i haven't tried yet... maybe i should

    Aliexpress is an extension of Alibaba.com. They both are terrible, and FULL of scammers, crooks, and thieves. I wouldn't advise using them for anything. If you are looking for dropshippers, I might suggest salehoo.com as a good place to start. I personally own a wholesale authentic perfume and cologne dropshipping company if that is of any interest to you. Also, if you are looking to source anything from China, I have a good company I have used before. They are located in China, and will find you whatever you need for a small fee. Let me know if I can help.

    Most stuff on Aliexpress is more expensive and if you enquire to haggle the prices down most sellers will want to do deal on there own websites.

    It is one of those sites where you take your own risks and hope for the best

    I was pretty much interested in this service. I just was disappointed to find out that many suppliers refuse to ship directly to your customers even if they are to sign off express mail. Regarding salehoo, most of the items I searched where pretty expensive hence weren't worth trying. As a contributor here says they still recommend salehoo it would be nice mentioning their approach when looking for products.

    Alipress is trusted. Also it is good for the escow service. But, you have to contact different suppliers for different items. And, the after-sales service is not so efficient and convinient. It will be cost much your time. My suggestion is that you can find a E-commerce Company for dropshipping, you only need to talk the business with one account manager, then you will feel more simple and comfortable.

    Also, Alipress is generally for the retailer, you can find some professional cooperator for dropshipping . If necessary, Pm me, I will give you more suggestions.

    I am waiting for an order from AliExpress. This is the status of my order: "The supplier is recently found to have unsafe trading activities. To protect your trade safety , we have decided to check this order, please be patient and wait for further instructions from us." Hopefully, all goes well.

    Welcome to dealing with China

    No offense to any Chinese person, but most do try to rip you off. Usually you can haggle down on the price.

    I've heard people say that dropshipping from Aliexpress is a bad idea due to the shipping time. By the time your product arrives at your customers doors they are gonna be pissed.

    Shipping delays and the fact that most of the hot products are already being sold by Chinese sellers on eBay/Amazon at rock bottom prices makes dropshipping from Aliexpress difficult.

    A lot of the AliExpress sellers now have distribution centers in different parts of the world (US & UK, Etc.), hopefully this would speed delivery.

    That wouldn't work , unless you want your customers to see the price you paid and where its from.

    I think it's good idea to save money first then hold the stocks. I plan to dropship with aliexpress too, but I want to provide in good costumer experience because they will buy again if they like your products/services. So now no way to Aliexpress.

    Default Re: Have anyone tried to dropship from AliExpress?

    I've used it to buy some personal stuff but there are a few drawbacks that don't go with dropshipping very well that I can share due to my personal experience as a buyer:
    1. Huge delays. Delivery time is inconsistent and always very long. If you go with it, you need to specify this on your seller website.
    2. The packaging is usually crappy. You get the product, but not in a presentable packaging and it's always clear it comes from China/Hong Kong or wherever. The lower declared value is something you can specify in you shop or you can ask sellers to declare the value you are selling the package for, this will not be the problem.
    3. The percentage of faulty or low quality items is too high. You can get a refund, but the process is annoying and even if you get the refund or partial refund, your customer is still going to be pissed off.
    4. Your item might be held up at customs which means that the buyer needs to go there show payment proofs, pay import taxes and so on which might be annoying as hell and the fact that their payment proof is going to be to you and not the seller might be an additional bonus problem for them.

    Dropshipping services of AliExpress are very bad and poor.
    I think you have to use dropshipping of eBay for getting good services.

    Yes this is very important. If you see that you're getting good traction on the product, slow your advertising and order in bulk. That way you can ship quicker.

    I don't advice, tracking online is difficult. Shipping time too long. The price is correct.
