    Hi got a quick question about dropshipping to the US.I found a hot item i would like to dropship to the US as the demand is very high and ROI arround 400-500%.Issue is EPA banned it from the US.The Item is heavy so if i would dropship it from outside of the US you guys think there will be a high % get controlled on the US border and wont arrive to the customers?

    Would be nice if somebody experienced could give some advice

    If its a banned item, I would say most likely it will be held by US customs.

    I'm with PitchBlack; customs will most likely confiscate your product:(

    its nothing about smoking its an engine.
    About custom i dont really think they control each package but since its so heavy they might be more interrested in checking them.

    I think the cost of shipping something that heavy here would cost a fortune, bring your ROI way down.... Plus loosing some to customs... There goes your profit. What your trying to do probably can be done by sea, but is it worth it?

    weight is arround 90kg/200 lbs.I was already thinking about sea.I guess i need to find a company who is handling such stuff and asking how often they got controlled.
    Profit is nice as the unit costs 200-400$ and is being sold on ebay arround 1500-2000$ in used condition
