    I have been dropshipping on ebay (first time) and a month has passed since the expected delivery date (items come from china) and the buyers never contacted me saying they haven't received the item, but they also never left feedback. Should i contact them and ask them if they received the item or should i just wait for them to contact me? I kinda hate dropshipping with Chinese sellers because they NEVER give tracking #s and a buyer could easily scam me. Anyone have any experience in this?

    Shipping from China is hit or miss, people tell me their customs are really messed up. They can hold a package forever and never release it if they want to. If the item does not cost you too much just order another and have it shipped to the customer and maybe give something extra to get the good feedback.

    I have ordered about 30 times from china (some big orders but mostly small) and i have never had a problem with delivery (i mean NEVER). I'm not worried about the buyers not receiving their item i'm worried they will lie about it and get their money back with the item!

    Thats something you will have to live with though, I get a good amount of buyers do this scam. Nothing you can really do about it, business always comes with risks
