We are going to reveal the No. 1 secret to a profitable dropshipping business that 7-figure dropshippers do not tell you in this article and how you can get access to it.
Many drop shippers default to e-Packet when it comes to choosing a shipping method. Or rather, Aliexpress default to e-Packet when it comes to sending products to your customer. They present e-Packet as the default shipping method that you can receive “FREE SHIPPING”, but don’t be fooled, that FREE SHIPPING can become very costly.
- First of all, shipping is never “FREE”, let’s take a look at an example.
If the product cost is $2.00, and epacket cost $6.00, Aliexpress vendors usually present the product cost as $8.00 + FREE shipping.
Now imagine, when you have a customer that orders multiple items, instead of paying 2 x $2.00 for product and $8.00 for shipping due to the increase in weight = $2 + $2 + $8 = $12, you have to pay shipping twice with the “FREE SHIPPING” in Aliexpress 2 X（$8 + FREE Shipping）= $16.00.
Cjdropshipping, on the other hand, will consolidate all the products and send it in one package, and shipping is dependent on the destination country and the product’s weight.
Continuing on with the example above, you will pay $12.00 with CJDropshipping and $16.00 with Aliexpress.
You see how costly FREE SHIPPING on Aliexpress becomes for your dropshipping business?
- Secondly, e-Packet takes a long time to get to destination countries. Your package’s e-Packet journey will mostly be like this:
|Day 1||CHINA, Received item from Sender (Outbound) |
|Day 2 – Day 24||No tracking updates, WTF is going on? #%^$%^&^*!!|
|Day 25||Delivered! |
- Finally, as US and China is entering into a trade war, e-Packet is raising its price and will no longer be the best alternative for dropshippers. Especially as we enter into the peak season of 2018 starting in October, rooms on planes will be pre-booked, all the packages are fighting to get on the first plane they can get on so they can be delivered on time.
