Hello! I decided to start my own dropshipping store (aliexpress + shopify) and there's one thing that bothers me. Is it necessary to contact suppliers before selling their products? After some research, a lot of articles about dropshipping were making it look essential. So I decided to contact some sellers/manufacturers to ask about a cooperation, but no replies so far. In the meantime I was watching some videos on the subject, and people were just adding products without contacting anyone.. So if you are running this kind of bussiness, I would really appreciate an informed reply. I am mostly concerned with getting my account banned/breaking some rules, that's why it's important to me. Also, I know that you should contact seller not to include their shop information/branding etc. You have to do this everytime you place your order, or once at the beginning of this cooperation.. Thanks for your help!
