Mistakes To Avoid When You Start Dropshipping

1 – Check Shipping Times BEFORE Choosing Which Countries to Sell To. A lot of beginners see that the seller on Ali Express ships worldwide, and so list the item with worldwide shipping without further thought. This is a huge mistake. Why?  Because the Ali Express supplier is dealing with businesses, not consumers. They can send items to any country, but it may take 20-40 days for an item to arrive. For businesses buying in bulk and making considerable savings, waiting may be an option, but for your customers, it is not. We strongly recommend as a beginner focusing on countries with shorter shipping times of 2-3 weeks, as this will cause less customer support issues.   2 – Make Shipping… Read more »

Consumers are more likely to simply hit “add to cart” or “buy now” rather than scrolling down to review options.
