    I added 12 products on my aliexpress cart then I realised they dont accept paypal, so I searched the same products on ebay.
    Conclusion:
    Ebay is cheaper (I paid with 15% less)
    Ebay is quicker: 15-30 and 15-45 days for delivery, instead of 15-60 (aliexpress)
    So why all shopify+aliexpress journeys are so successfull? Why not Ebay/Alibaba? They have better prices and accept paypal too

    You already posted almost identical thread but ok.

    They do not accept paypal but you can use like 5 different payment methods.

    They are cheap and you can do easy wholesale with them, you can find like really really cheap prices, and you can contact sellers so if you want to work with them they can drop you their price more than 30% if you can sell 50+ items per week.

    Aliexpress is an Alibaba company.

    Almost Same sellers exist on both alibaba and aliexpress, but on aliexpress you can purchase 1 item and on alibaba, it's wholesales, this more discount.

    I have noticed, even on ebay the same sellers exists many a times, when I ask them they have confirmed that they sell on ebay too, but regarding shipping, I still wonder why they differ on each site.

    well, most of aliexpress sellers also sell on ebay for same price.
    About shipping, it depends. If you use sellers offering epacket you will get your items fast.
    for me, when I dropship, I use aliexpress and ebay.
    aliexpress accepts all credit cards and their buyer protection is as good as the one paypal offers.
