    Hi,

    I have some quick questions.

    1) If I would like to diversify the items, what can I do to my customer if he needs to order different items from 5 suppliers?

    2) If he does not satisfy the items from 5 suppliers, how to tell him to return the items to 5 suppliers (he believes the items are come from one place. That is my shop.) ?

    3) If I decide the item's profit margin is a little bit high like $30 to $50. How to avoid suppliers contacting customer directly?

    Thank you.

    1. i dont understand the question

    2. he does not return, you refund out of your pocket then issue a refund/complaint to seller because items are not as described, if he and aliexpress honors that desciosion you get your money, if not you lose on this sale.

    3. you can't ... just pick the top sellers with 1000s of sales/reviews and hope they are fair as they got a high reputation. just put in order text "no promotional materials in the package, this is a dropshipping business"

    hopefully you got something on this info, gl

    1. Just tell him you are sending items from different warehouses...

    2. Tell him to send items to you
    3. Its low chance he will searching it from somewhere else.. or you can change name of item so he cant find it

    For point 2), pick a supplier that accepts returns.
    For point 3), you are the intermediary.

    Thank you for you answer. For Question 1, let me explain it more:

    I would like to choose items from many different aliexpress shops. Then, I build my shopify webpage. If a customer order the items that is actually come from 5 different aliexpress shops. What can I do?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you for you answer.

    For the answer of Q2, is it a normal practice?
    Then, I need to return the items to the sellers in a limited time? How long is that time?

    Thanks in advance.
