There are many dropshippers worried about dropshipping scope, dropshipping worldwide or dropshipping to EU USA and other developed countries only? Which is more profitable? It is a tough question as different dropshipper has different advantages and disadvantages on dropshipping scope.

Firstly, different countries have different consumer habits, especially the religious belief countries, if you target worldwide dropshipping, you may only choose the general consumer goods on daily life;

Secondly, compares to west countries, the rest of world online shopping isnt that developed, the product unit price usually lower and payment ways are different;

Thirdly, shipping delivery way to africa, south Asia,  island countries, South America countries are expensive and restricted. Compared to west countries high competitive shipping courier, the rest countries shipping delivery are very expensive and very few choice, which means the user experience wont be good enough and aftersale might also higher;

Fourthly, dropshipping worldwide or EU USA only depends on the dropshipping team, if you only a soho dropshipper then you may not have enough energy to do marketing research, make different ads sets etc. In this case, focus on west countries are better choice.

In short, dropshipping worldwide or EU USA only isnt a simply thoughts, dropshipping worldwide doesnt mean it is more profitable than dropshipping to EU USA countries, middle east, south america or other districts in the world. As a dropshipper you need to do your own research on different districts in the world then make more specific plan, then you have more chance to make profits.

Dropshipping or wholesale which is more profitable?2022-05-07T03:09:22+00:00

That’s a frequently asked questions by many ecommerce sellers. Dropshipping or wholesale which is better? Each seller has their own advantages and disadvantages on dropshipping and wholesale mode, we can see the difference between them then make the right choice.

Firstly, dropshipper no need to have stock inventory, but as a wholesaler you usually need to have products stock, it means there should be relatively big capital invested on the products stock, the more product skus and quantities the more money required;

Secondly, the dropshipping products usually have higher profit margin but less sales quantities for retail, wholesale are on the opposite, it usually have lower profits with bulky sales quantities;

Thirdly, dropshipping usually need focus on marketing, the more professional the higher sales and profits, while wholesale need focus on product cost and distribution network; The cheaper cost with higher quality the bigger distribution network and bigger sales and profits;

Fourthly, dropshipping is online retail mode which usually being seen as B2C or C2C, while wholesale is usually being seen as B2B mode, they mainly sell to dropshipper or companies which bigger order quantities than personal.

Thus it is hard to say dropshipping is more profitable than wholesale or wholesale has bigger profits than dropshipping, it is totally depending on your advantages whether suitable for dropshipping or wholesale. If you are good at social marketing you may have high profits easily, if you good at supplychain quality and cost control you may have higher profits on wholesale.

When you dropship from China via Shopify, eBay, Etsy or other platform, low price products doesnt suitable to choose fast delivery service as people will not pay higher shipping fee than the goods cost just like the products cost you saw on Wish, they are usually light weight and small volume. You can sell low price goods as traffic goods to increase ads click and conversion rates but you need to sell high price goods for profits.

Frankly speaking it is totally paradoxical question as quality and cost are proportional, the higher quality the higher cost, the cheaper price the lower quality. When you sourcing goods for dropshipping, you need to find the right positioning goods for target people.

Thus when you need to source quality goods for dropshipping, the first goal is always the goods with quality material, workmanship and design, then filter the quality goods supplier with relatively cheap price, once you have good sales of the product, then you can bulk wholesale the goods for cheaper price from supplier.

How to source quality goods at cheaper price?

The process usually can be divided into 3 steps. Firstly the dropshipping agent help you source quality goods match the user requirements, then filter 1 to 2 best one between 3 to 5 suppliers with closer price with the same design, material and workmanship. Once the product became hot sale, you can start to wholesale based on your daily sales at cheaper cost, during the process you can reduce at least 15% to 30% cost which will become the profits.

The whole procedure might take upto 1 to 2 months, but the rule is for dropshipping is always quality first then price, lots of dropshippers keen on cheap price goods for high ROI conversion rates, in the end it caused high return rates which doesnt worth the loss for dropshipping.

What’s the cheapest way ship from China to USA EU?2022-03-11T02:33:53+00:00

It is a paradoxical question frequently asked by the dropshippers. The faster shipping the higher shipping rates is the common sense on international shipping, but the real purpost for dropshipper is to find a balance between the shipping cost and delivery time for small packages shipping from China to USA and EU countries.

What’s the cheapest way ship from China to USA EU?

If you dropship from Aliexpress for a while you will know the basic delivery time requirements. It mainly related to the product price. For low value products under $15, the delivery time usually between 20 to 45 days as dropshipper prefer more on Aliexpress free shipping; For goods value from $15 to $40, dropshipper usually prefer the goods deliver under 20 days; For goods value above $50 dropshipper prefer delivery time under 7 days. In short, the higher products value the higher delivery time requirements.

The shipping rates mainly related to goods category, weight, volume and delivery time, but it also affected by politics and environments. For example, Why the package ship from China to USA so expensive than before? It is mainly because of the politics and pendemic, more and more requirements shipping from China to USA while less freight airlines than before, and the goods stuck in the local USA port due to less staff work on there under the pendemic, the shipping price will increase.

How to find the cheapest way ship from China to USA and EU?

There are s few tips for you:

1> Find balance between the delivery time and profit margin. As we talked above, the higher goods value the higher profit margin, also the higher delivery time requirements, you need to find a balance between them;

2>Find courier service doesnt charge volume or charge less volume weight. Currently nearly all the courier charge based on volume weight, but few doesnt charge volume if the volume size meet their volume restriction, and some couriers charge less volume, which is the volume formula divide by 8000 instead of 6000 or 5000; If you dropship volume weight higher than actual weight goods from China, it is a very important rule;

3> Offer paid fast delivery. If you want to provide better user experience by faster delivery service while do not want cut profits, you can provide paid DHL FEDEX or UPS delivery, but the goods value on your store should be high. People wont willing to pay $30 delivery for a $10 rings;

4>Stock best seller goods. If you have best seller goods with regular 5 to 10 pcs sales per day, you can bulk wholesale at lower price and stock at dropshipping agent warehouse, in this case you can have higher profits than dropshipping while the delivery time is faster.

5>Spent more time on light weight volume goods research with high price. The shipping rates closely related to the goods weight and volume, the more light weight goods the cheaper shipping rates, meanwhile it has higher profit margin.

Only you know your dropshipping profits and shipping requirements better you know how to find the best way ship from China to USA EU.
