    You don't even have specific question. It's like asking I want to be a good politician. Any suggestion to be one?

    What is the problem? If I tell you to register an ebay account, create paypal account and register on Ali or other china marketplace of course it is the basic things to do.

    Please. Read some post here about making money through dropshipping. Such as:

    I think you might need to read a bit more about dropshipping.
    There is no way to guarantee it will arrive and that it will be correct.

    At least I want to reduce the shipping cost, and protect my right, if the goods damaged or missed, I wish someone could own a part of the responsiblity (seller or courier). Thus I really need suggestions from who have ever tried dropshipping from China, and give me advices for products, shipping

    1. How to reduce shipping cost?

    China seller mostly provide free shipping but have no tracking number. To get shipping with tracking number, find seller that ship with epacket at least.

    2. How to protect from damage or missed product?

    Everything have risk even if the product shipped from USA directly. Discuss with supplier first about the possibility of damaged good. Some seller provide replacement with little cost. Calculate your margin wisely.

    As I can see in the post, your main concern is the shipping, however, it is only one part among the whole business process. I am totally agree with topioka, you need to read and learn more about drop shipping before starting your business on Ebay, else you may loss money in the business. In addition to the articles others suggested above, you can also take a look at taobaoguides.com, there you can see lots of practical information about how to shopping and shipping from China.

    In my opinion it's too risky to dropshipping directly from China: very long shipping times if you want free shipping and you'll never know the condition of the item that you will ship to your customer.
    If I would sell things from China I probably first ship them to me to check the stuff and to make sure that customer won't waiting weeks when I'll ship the item.
    Well I guess this isn't anymore dropshipping but just "reselling", but, again, dropshipping directly from China can be very risky in my opinion.
    Anyway I would be happy to hear someone that's got success with this kind of dropshipping.
