    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?

    paypal and bitcoin both a winner .

    if you contact paypal and exsplain what your doing then they can add another account and up the limit ..

    this only happends if you use pay pal heavy like i do.

    they seem to really help if you got everythink verified and legal.

    by the way i pay for everythink via credit card for goods from aliexspress for safty reasons

    with a credit card quickly get cash back when orders are not receved .

    you need a good credit card and good paypal balence with dropshipping no good doing it with 0 on them both.

    your credit card can even be a pay as you go as long as it credited .

    most ppl just use a stelth paypal account with heigh limits and buy bitcoin when needed, to cash out of there paypal funds .

    the stripe service is good but only if your legal and legit or they can hold cash aswell
