    Hi everybody

    I'm a supplier from China. I just take a look at these threads in this forum, i found out that most of dropshippers here are never mentioned Chinese suppliers. I was wondering what reason makes Chinese suppliers not likable. In my opinion the relationship between droshipper and supplier is all depends on the clients they deal with. Different clients should be related to different suppliers, a strong business can not exist without extended client coverage.
    Compared with the suppliers from EUR US or any where else on this planet, Chinese suppliers have a very obvious advantage - price. The products' prices Chinese suppliers can give is very competitive, and i believe everyone who is doing business must knows that "lower costs the higher profits it will be". Of course when you selling something, the things you are selling are eventually be criticized by the customers who buy them, and how is your business will be also is all depends on the criticism your costumers give. So some dropshippers might think that low price = low quality. But the fact is the standard to judge product quality is very subjective, so clients choosing is very important, choose the clients who wants cheap price also accept the quality which this price level can have. If you can do that then you can make a fortune with the products us Chinese suppliers give.
    All above is my own point of view, i'm doing business and crave for success just like you guys. So if there is anything you want to say about all those things i just said please give me your best shot. Because after all, this is all this forum about "to communicate, to succeed"

    Imho, the biggest problem with drop shipping in general is the fact that you do not have much control of your biz.

    Using a China based dropper has the major disadvantage of:

    ship cheap = takes to long
    ship fast = to expensive

    That is the drawback of using a China based supplier.

    Better to buy bulk and do the shipping yourself. But a lot of people either lack the knowledge of how to hook up with a good supplier or the funds to start with a decent amount of merchandise
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    This and alot of the chinese "suppliers" are just middlemen who take most of the profit anyway, its hard to find a true "manufacturer" online. Thus making it hard to do a decent business when adding in the rape on shipping. They could probably do 5x the business to the US if they didn't get greedy.

    There is a thread on here where the member said he had been doing business for years with 1 company so he went to China to meet them and found that they didn't have a factory just a small office. And then discovered the factory they were using and found out they had been charging him 35% MORE than what the factory asked.

    Does it really cost $30 USD to ship one pair of replica shoes to the US via EMS??
