    Hey there.

    I wanna know:
    Alot of people using aliexpress drop shipping but isn't the 30-60 Days delivery time a little bit to long for a whole lot of people? What you do against the delivery time?

    Great question! I believe that many use excuses like: "We're a new company, so shipping could take up to 3-4 weeks". If it's a product they pay <10$ for, they'll accept it as long as you communicate with them.

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/my-aliexpress-dropshipping-journey.776532/ has a wealth of information about it. From what I understood, if you provide free shipping, people will not mind long delivery times.

    If you are dropshipping to the states, only use products that have e-packet. That will cut down shipping to 2 weeks.

    Very good question. The answer is that many of these pure AliExpress dropshippers who use the standard delivery timeframes will face big problems sooner or later. Even if you offer free shipping people will complain AFTER they bought it, simply because they are impatient (even though you made clear how long shipping will take).

    Especially using PayPal can lead to bigger problems here: customers wanting refunds or simply recharge because of long deliveries is something PayPal doesn't want to see. Even with tracking info this can cause you problems, without any info they will screw you even more.

    So in my opinion you should think twice about starting such a "40 days delivery" shop. Customers are used to Express delivery because of Amazon etc., they won't stay calm just because you offer something rather cheap.

    You need to find product from AliExpress who can delivery with e-Packet .. shipping is more faster with cheap fees. Use Oberlo on your shopify it will help you out,
