    Hey hi, I begin to test the method of aliexpress/shopify + facebook ad method.

    I lost a lot of money but finally I nail an item and audience. Right now I have 155 orders.

    But here is my question:
    I only did successful 17 orders on aliexpress, then my credit card was blocked every 9 orders, I thought it was a limit of my local bank, but then I tried with Payoneer card and face the same issue.

    What payment method do you use for dropshipping on aliexpress?

    I couldn't imagine how the people that sell $100k a month a dropshipper from aliexpress do so much transactions daily.

    I'm afraid to refund my current sales only for this tricky problem. I don't even have tried to scale, if I continue at this pace, I'm pretty sure I can have 500 sales at the end of the month.

    HELP

    Contact your bank and contact aliexpress. If those don't work, contact the seller directly because maybe you could do it outside aliexpress but that's less safe

    WOW 155 orders in how long a few days? thats impressive how much revenue did thatt bring you? I want to also do this but i was using free traffic methods such as instagram but obviously if you set up a successful campaign the potential is a lot higher.

    Anyways congrats, If your having issues using your card i suggest making a entropy account and generating vcc

    I contact my bank, and they REQUIRED that I contact them by phone every single time the card is blocked so if I need to place 155 orders, and every 9 orders the card is blocked I need to call them 17 times, is plain stupid. The bank is stupid.

    Thank you I check Entropay, the solution seems cool but the fee is high as fuck, 5% for fund the vcc is too much.

    You can not use EntroPay because AliExpress ban virtual card transactions, if you try, your balance will be locked 90 days

    You could try the paypal debit card. You need a paypal business account. I would think debit cards in general have less limitations because you actually have the money sitting in an account.

    Dumbest advice because there is a per transaction limit.

    It still alleviates the situation, so not that dumb. If you manage to make your orders in 9 transactions, you don't get the block at all, do you?

    That would make my life 10000000% easier, the only tiny detail is that I'm not from USA/Europe.

    Is not dumb, is the first things that I had in mind. I contact the seller on aliexpress but seems hesitante to make the bulk order and process the shipment with a file of addresses.

    The hell, sorry i meant Venezuela.
    Try to create an account in payoneer, neteller or other system with prepaid cards, maybe if you have a little ammount in this account, you can avoid problem like this, this could be your backup of money lol, soon i want start my own dropshipping business, i have a question: for example if you have 2 suppliers or more, and a customer buy 2 things of this different suppliers, you send this with different tracking numbers?

    The best option is to make the orders all at once so you swipe your card just once, if the seller doesn't want to agree with bulk order processing, then I suggest you look for another seller that offers the same product and is ready for dropshipping with you

    can you use the Alipay option on Aliexpress?
    It depends on which country you are from

    If you do a bulk purchase for say 20 different customers on one transaction, would that make it harder to do refunds or deal with complaints, if one or 2 of them weren't happy or didn't get their shipment?

    I would probably try to sign up to get a new card that doesn't have these limitations. This is a good warning to me for any future plans I may try. Thanks for the headsup.

    Can I ask how you manage drop shipping and receipts through AliExpress? Do they not include a receipt that has the much lower price with the product for your customers?

    Maybe you can negotiate with the seller and choose another kind of payment method,i.e paypal,etc.
