    Hello BHW

    As you know i'm from Italy and sometimes it's hard to apply all the knowledge/methods/infos of BHW to an European country..and it's not always easy to make my "european" twist

    I've ordered a bunch of items before on Aliexpress and i know that the shipping time for Italy/Europe is TERRIBLE. Even the smallest thing take to 20 to 50 days and sometimes even 60 if your package doesn't get lost.

    For this reasons it's impossible to use Aliexpress for Franklin Hatchet, i know i will be face a lot of refunds request..

    There are other alternative to Aliexpress ? Maybe some cina/economic with EU stock ?

    Thanks to all

    If package doesn't come within maximum time on aliexpress, just ask for refund and refund the user that ordered.

    On your website, say the maximum time for the order to come is the maximum time it takes for aliexpress to get the order to you.

    If they fail to deliver within time, no worries you can get refund no problem.

    Is the epacket option available to you?

    My customers are getting their package anywhere from 10 to 15 days, which really isn't that horrible actually.

    I know what you mean and you are right but i'm wondering to make as much as few rufunds as i can because for personal experience it takes a lot of time of managing this situations.



    Are you from Europe too ? I don't know what epacked is but i'm now googling it and start reading something about. If you would like to share more info, they are really apprecciate!

    ePacket is only from China to USA, not to Europe. If you want fast shipping to EU you have to choose dhl, ems etc. which will result in shipping fee being ten times as high as item value.

    There are some China suppliers with EU stock, but not that many, also their prices are way higher than the $1-3 range of same products on ali. So for EU this is really hard to do.

    I think you'll find its just Italy the shipping time is especially long to. Thats the only country in the EU I block for my ebay sales, everything gets lost or takes ages. Just target a different country, the 10-20 people on here doing the same is a drop in the ocean

    Although I do agree on this as there are not tons of sources out etc those countries Sythix mentioned are still good if you dig deep. it will be harder now but I still see people every day in the eCom academy private FB group finding good niches in those countries. I can't give anyone access to the group tho I got in there when I purchased a course then when I refunded it I never got kicked out. It's private and I'm not sure of any way in. anyhow yea people ar still finding niches in those countries.
