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?

    We have something in our Terms & Conditions or Shipping section that states that items may arrive in separate packages. Done!

    We've never had a problem with a customer because things arrived in different packages on different days. Most times that I order multiple things from Amazon, the same thing happens to me and I have no problem with it.

    This should not be a problem if you inform your customers about it. You can say that different products come from different warehouses so they may arrive on different days.

    If you dropship from Aliexpress then your clients may receive twice, if the clients are okay with it then it wont be a problem, else the clients might not order again.

    Currently all my clients got products information on Aliexpress to shopify store, and they ask me to source the goods on 1688 at lower price, each day we export the orders and order on 1688 after that consolidate all the items together in one order to ship to clients over the world.

    In this way, you do not have to keep inventory or keep inventory for hotsale goods to make better user experience.
