    Hi,

    Anyone have any success drop shipping with shipment time 30-60 days from China? on AliExpress. My niche products have free shipping on Ali, but up to 60 days to arrive... I am worried customers will demand refund before 60 days. Even if I'm honest on product page about shipping time. Thoughts?

    I could order ePacket for faster shipping but that cuts into my profit. Please advise. THX

    There's a shipping option called epacket. It usually only costs a few dollars more and it's only for small products I believe shipping from Hong Kong. The shipping is I think less than 2 weeks but maybe 3

    maybe you should state how long would it take to arrive, or add shiping cost to the items.

    I will state the product shipping times on page.

    ePacket - yes, but it seems reasonably priced ONLY for shipping to USA. It's usually $2-3 for USA, but for other countries like Canada ePacket can be crazy like over $5. So, do you advise only shipping to USA because of this ??

    that's a delicate balance... can only increase shipping so much before people start balking. I'd say $14.95 is about the max anyone would pay for shipping small product. What do you think is max reasonable shipping price on small product ?
