    So..
    I've been thinking about this whole dropshipping thing and I have a plan.. I tried doing AliExpress - eBay.
    Got a few sells but I know how to generate 1000x more.
    I'm going to dive really deep into this but there is one thing I need to know before.

    Where do you guys get your supplies from?
    These are the ones I know of..

    AliExpress - Very Long Shipping Time [Free Shipping]
    Amazon - Never tried but heard it's fast delivery and good quality. [Not free shipping as far as I know]
    AliBaba - Heard of it but never tried it. Would assume its pretty much very relevant to AliExpress.

    Aliexpress is part of Alibaba as is 1688.com

    You could just check local dropshippers for your niche.

    Alibaba is b2b or business to business
    Aliexpress is b2c or biz to customer but they are the same company.

    You need to pay for epacket to speed up shipping with Ab or Ae.

    Hm.. I might look into that.. If the price of ePack is the same as the prices on Amazing I will go with Amazon for the simple reason of quality of the product.

    I highly suggest Amazon, Walmart and Overstock. They provide fast shipping and the buyers would really prefer that.

    They ship in branded boxes though..

    Also, for Alibaba, you have to order in big quantities 100+ to get better prices than Aliexpress.

    They ship in a branded box but customers don't care about it. I used to work with them for 3years. and had only 2complains about it.
    Also, Amazon provides FBA services.
