Hi,
I'm trying to get into e-commerce and due to a lack of funding I'm being forced into using dropshipping. I'm from the UK and I struggle to see why a customer would buy a product from china for £5 cheaper than amazon, when they ave to wait 40 days for delivery? Surely waiting a month for delivery is gonna put 99% of customers off of any purchase?

Thank you

    Most people don't do price comparison.

    Delivery is 2-3 weeks max if you select Epacket for shipping.

    If your marketing is good people won't care about the shipping time.

    I'm making thousands $ per day with this business model, it just works

    First of all, if its a true niche product that's harder to find its the fact they can find it and get it that's important. And hopefully, you've set your self up so they feel good that they are buying from an Expert in the niche.

    You're welcome to e-commerce business. Yeah! Dropshipping is also e-commerce business but its mostly useful & working method to create your store with a little invest but unlimited inventories in your store for your buyers. Now, you can decorate your Sotre any product with hundreds of variations & pricing is cheaper than you can ever think.

    I think you're a little bit wrong about the shipping things from Aliexpress(my preferred dropshipping platform). You can choose ePacket as shipping method.. it will cost 0$ - 2$ for the product to be delivered to your buyers billing/ shipping address. The estimated time is only 12 - 18 days!

    You can also offer the other popular shipping methods that can deliver your product within 3-5 days. But it will charge your buyer a little higher. DHL, UPS, Fedex etc!

    Hope, you could understand it! I'm creating eStores for my clients as well. Did not get any problem with shipping yet!

    Cheers!
