    Hi guys,

    I want to start doing dropshipping and don't know which one of the 3 options would work best for me:

    1. Get products from Amazon and dropship to eBay
    2. Open a store on Shopify and dropship Amazon's products.
    3.Open a store on Shopify and dropship Aliexpress's products.

    Any advice?

    This is what I think:

    Aliexpress:
    Pros: Cheaper than Amazon -> higher profit margin
    Cons: Made in China, Take 15-30 days delivery

    Amazon:
    Pros: Fast delivery - only 2 days with AmazonPrime
    Cons:
    Delivered in Amazon box -> this could decrease customer return rate as they would just go to Amazon
    More expensive than Aliexpress -> lower profit margin


    Still considering between the 2. Any more advice?

    Well i guess you can use Parcel forward service to solve this issue .. of returning customer flee to amazon thing ...
    simply go to usendhome(.)com and it will solve your issue .. as they has Repacking feature , also they has service which ------
    "Remove Invoice ($1)
    YES NO
    We'll remove the original invoice out of your package"

    "Repacking ($5)
    YES NO
    Have us repack your order into cost-saving containers."

    Repacking cost you 5$ and Remove invoice 1$ per item .
    they will remove your amazon Box and repack with their box and remove amazon invoice and will include your invoice which you have to provide them ---- this service to ensure dropshipping , check that parcel forwarding service , they are good and i guess it will solve your issue ... also amazon items with prime is free to ship their address , once you register with them you get a personal US Shipping address with your name and you have to use that address to ship purchased items from amazon so it will go to their warehouse and your usendhome account will be updated with the info of your incoming package .

    is it best to order some from aliexpress before drop shipping directly from shopify? my fear is the products are really mediocre quality resulting in a high return rate
