    Hello BHW members,

    Been lurking around the forum for a while and finally decided to give it a try myself. I'm pretty sure I've got a decent starting budget to invest for a newbie and decided to give it a shot.

    However, for my first starting niche, I've probably chosen one of the most mainstream dropshipping business - T-Shirts. I'm pretty sure that if I choose the right target market and advertise in certain groups I should see some result within the first month.

    The question I want to ask is whether I should look for T-Shirt suppliers like printful or find a supplier on AliExpress. Thing with printful is that they charge a high price for shipping whilst on AliX I can get the freeshipping method, which allows me to generate bigger profit. However, after looking for suppliers I've noticed that for custom print T-Shirts the order number is relatively small (not above 200 orders). This left me guessing whether dropshipping through Aliexpress is worth doing?

    Been looking for simillar thread, but they seem to be old and contain dead links.
    Thanks!

    Hi

    Shipping for tees is always high as they are heavy. I have been sourcing and shipping tees for years. What people fail to understand is 500 tees are bloody heavy. Different SE Asia countries have different rates. In some countries supply is cheap but shipping is big. It is a fine balancing act. I have the cost of tees and screen printing so low it is crazy, My shipping costs per tee is way more than the production of the screen printed product.

    The you have to consider the quality of the tee and the size as this adds to shipping. Sending by air is big. By SAL it is more reasonable but you have to consider the delivery time. This can screw up your cash flow.

    Good luck and remember the number one rule in shipping tees. Post is profit.
