    Hey Guys,

    I want to start dropshipping from AliExpress to Ebay. Is that something you guys recommend? Amazon Prime seems to be very complicated getting banned etc.

    Thanks

    It works fine, just be upfront with your shipping times (10-16days) to not run into negative feedback or refunds. State it in all your item descriptions. Plus, only go after items that ship via ePacket.

    I did it for a couple months and only had 1 out of 50ish orders refunded due to package not arriving.

    The hard part is finding items that are not already saturated and actually sell. There are like 10,000 chinese sellers doing this right now.

    Once you do find some items that sell, or you think will sell, search for alternative suppliers of these items. Sellers will change prices or go completely out of stock without warning.

    Shipping items that are only ePacket give you full tracking from carrier pickup to doorstep delivery just like any shipping in the USA. The only downside is that most Ali sellers have up to 3-5 days handling time. So factor that with the 10-15 days shipping it does take a while.

    If I lived in the US and not Canada, I would have just ordered a couple hundred of my best selling items and shipped myself domestic as orders came in.

    There's nothing wrong with that. Nobodys trying to hide that the products are shipped from China.

    Yes, but ebay dislikes drop shipping, just my fair warning to you
