    Hey. I'm close to launching a webshopping site with Alidropship and Stripe as my payment option, however - i'm concerned about the automated payments since Stripe holds your money for 1-3 bank days unlike paypal where you can spend the recieved money almost right away.

    How do you guys manage this? Do you stack up a paypal account with x amount of money and pay with that? I appreciate any light on this issue :)

    You can't use PayPal on Ali Express.

    You will have to front the money from your own pocket for your first orders and once the initial funds clear you can use that to make future purchases.

    I'm choosing shopify payment (stripe) rather than paypal.

    Paypal hold my money for 14 days min. When unlucky, its hold my money for 180 days (permanent limit). WTF!

    Do you have a buffer of money on your bank account or pay using credit?
