Lesson 3: Why you should dropship with US Suppliers

Lesson 3: Why you should dropship with US Suppliers

With traditional dropshipping suppliers originating from China, a two-day order fulfillment cycle doesn’t help you compete with larger eCommerce retailers like Amazon.

With US suppliers, you’re able to contact suppliers and get a reply and tracking number instantly. This adds diversity to your product range, giving your customers an option of which products can arrive faster.

This mitigates your overall risk and provides a healthy option of products for customers who simply cant wait three weeks for a package.

  • FAST Shipping: Assuming you’re targeting the largest consumer base, US products that are made and shipped from the US arrive at their destination much quicker than international suppliers.
  • Access to artisanal, high-quality products: Small businesses in the USA operate at a higher standard of production.
  • Better return Policies: Aliexpress is notorious for its poor or non-existent return policy. This can pose a huge risk for dropshippers since they don’t hold inventory.
