Load products into your store, process orders, research products, do all of these with the click of a few buttons. All of these can be automated and can be delivered to your customers within a week which is amazing because times are changing. This is a huge improvement over the AliExpress with a shipping time of 3-4 weeks or even 6 weeks. Even through e-packets the delivery time ranges between 12 – 20 days. In 2019, people are fed up with Dropshipping stores that take more than a month to deliver.
FB is paying close attention to what their customers are saying. If you wish to have an edge over your competitors, run your Dropshipping business for a long term, have an amazing experience for your customers keep reading through the article and watch the video here.
Step by step breakdown of delivering products to your customer faster
I do have a warehouse in the US. I don’t own the warehouse but use the services of 3PL (Third-party logistics) Companies, which is one of the routes. What you can do is buy products at Alibaba in bulk and then supply it to the 3PL providers inside the US who can fulfil your items.
It will not be possible if you are testing your products. Even while using Dropshipping agents inside China, most of the shipping times are within 2 -3 weeks. If you want to bang on fastest shipping possible, increase your Facebook customer feedback score, run your Dropshipping business for a long term, you should aim at reducing your shipping time so that the products that you sell in your stores should reach your customers within 7 days.
How is it possible to provide 7 days shipping at a competitive cost?
I will be sharing with you the strategy that can be used right away to sustain your business in the long run, offer superfast shipping and your customers will give a good feedback on your Facebook page.
Let us assume you place an order on AliExpress. You will see long delivery times.
The estimated time of 25 days even through e-packets is risky and not sustainable in the long run especially in 2019.
The alternative is ebay. It is easy to dropship products from ebay to your customers.
How to do this in an automated manner?
You can import the products from ebay, start selling them from your stores.
When it comes to order fulfilment, you remember inside Oberlo, you need to click a button and there is a step by step process inside when the order is placed similarly for ebay we need to use Dropified.
In Dropified too there is a step by step automated process where you need to click a button and the order is placed. Dropified will track and update the fulfilment inside Shopify too. We will talk about Dropified later.
There are a few things you need to note. I will show how to approach the strategy.
Once you find out a product you need to sell, you can search for it inside ebay.
For example; let us search for chunky blanket inside ebay
click on N.America on the left hand side under Item location in the filters.
You can view all the listings from eBay sellers who are located inside North America shipping out items from inside North America which is how you are able to get this superfast shipping times.
To view the product cost range between 30.99 to 41.69 dollars scroll down.
If you click on the above link, you can see the terms, “Fast and Free” which promises a delivery time of 6 days. (This video recording happened on 10 May)
Other elements such as delivery time, color, bulk, and so on can also be viewed.
The Shipping and Payments tab allows you to enter the zip code of your customer, get the rates, shipping and handling terms based on the Zip Code entered.
Your customers are assured to get free shipping it in less than a week’s time.
Most of the bestselling items found on AliExpress are available on e-bay but there might be certain products on ebay that are not available for direct purchase. The products are sold by the North American sellers at a most competitive price with fast shipping time. There might be a 10 dollar difference in price when compared to AliExpress.
To explain with an example, let us look out for a product, Chunky blanket at AliExpress and see if we can find a listing for the same item at ebay.
Figure 1: Same listing in ebay
The chunky blanket priced at USD 12.40 in AliExpress is priced at 16.99 USD at eBay with free shipping and an estimated delivery time at 3 days.
Always go for an eBay seller who has a 97% positive feedback with few thousand ratings.
Secured and guaranteed payment
For all the orders that you place, the payment mode will be either credit card or PayPal which assures an ebay guarantee that is easier to deal with.
To summarize you have the fastest shipping advantage with a comparable price. The ideal choice would be eBay.
Save time and money through Automation
It doesn’t make sense to go to ebay.com, download each image one by one and then import it to your store. For fulfilling your customer orders, if you are profiling each customer’s information one by one, it is going to occupy your valuable time even if you are getting 10-20 orders per day.
The best solution can be a software or app that can automate the whole process and integrate with AliExpress, eBay and your store.
I have been using Dropified app which is pretty popular and also being used by lot of dropshippers. Dropified is a dropshipping software, a bridge between your store and your dropshipper. It integrates with ebay and AliExpress.
Note: With Dropified’s powerful automation, you can spend more you’ll free up at least 20 hours a week in your drop shipping business.
