AliExpress: How do you deal with bulk shipping?

Hi guys. When sourcing from AliExpress or Wish, if a customer orders 2 or more items from your store and those items are from 2 or more sources, the items will arrive in separate packages and on different dates. Is this a bad idea? How do you deal with this?

I want to drop ship all the items on my store without keeping any inventory. But if I can not send bulk shipments in the same package, then I can't offer any incentives for my customers to order more items. The only way around this is to order the items that I "think" might sell and keep invo. Any thoughts?

    I'm not sure why shipping from two different suppliers prevents you from offering incentives to buy more. Your prices should have the cost of shipping already built into them.

      Because the items will arrive on different dates from different companies. The customer is expecting a package deal where all the items come at once. As an incentive, this option would not be available. So I now have to create a new incentive not based on bulk packaging.

        A package deal on products does not necessarily mean that they have to arrive in the same package. We put packages deals together all the time that ship from 2, 3 or even 4 different places. All the customer cares about is a deal, not how many packages it arrives in or whether they arrived on the same day.
