Dropshipping from China


Dropshipping from China

Dropshipping from China involves an e-commerce business model where a seller purchases products from a Chinese supplier, and then the supplier ships the products directly to the buyer. 

This means that the seller never handles the products physically and doesn't need to worry about storing inventory or shipping products.

Dropshipping from China has become a popular way of starting an eCommerce business. Here are the basic steps you need to follow:

  • 1.Find a reputable supplier: There are many suppliers in China, but not all of them are trustworthy. You can find suppliers on platforms such as Alibaba, AliExpress, and DHgate. Do your research and check their reviews, ratings, and shipping times.

  • 2.Choose your products: Once you have found a supplier, choose the products you want to sell. Ensure that the products are of good quality and have a reasonable profit margin.

  • 3.Set up your online store: You can create your online store on platforms like Shopify, WooCommerce, or BigCommerce. Customize your store to match your brand, and add the products you want to sell.

  • 4.Sync your store with the supplier: Most suppliers have tools that allow you to import their products into your store. This makes it easy to keep your inventory updated.

  • 5.Market your store: Once your store is set up, start marketing it. Use social media, email marketing, and search engine optimization to drive traffic to your store.

  • 6.Process orders: When a customer places an order on your store, the supplier will ship the product directly to the customer. You will receive the payment, minus the cost of the product and shipping.

  • 7.Manage customer service: Make sure to provide excellent customer service. Respond to inquiries promptly, handle complaints professionally, and provide accurate information about shipping times and tracking information.

By following these steps, you can start dropshipping from China and build a successful eCommerce business.

However, the website 1688.com is a popular online marketplace in China for wholesale products, and some dropshippers may source products from there. As with any online marketplace, it's important to exercise caution and thoroughly research any potential suppliers before making any purchases.

1688.com is a catalog of Chinese wholesale suppliers under the Alibaba Group. 1688.com is almost the same as Alibaba.com, except that 1688.com mainly caters to Chinese companies.

The entire website is in Chinese. So you have to use Google Translate or find someone who can read Chinese to help you find a supplier on this website.


What Is 1688 Dropshipping?

1688 dropshipping is the option to source your products from 1688.com. Just like you dropship products from AliExpress, you would have to change your product sourcing to 1688. This is the whole idea of 1688 dropshipping. 

Is 1688 Good for Dropshipping?

Both AliExpress and 1688 have their advantages and disadvantages of dropshipping. AliExpress is a multi-language drop-ship platform. Overseas drop-shippers can find and communicate with suppliers without any problems.
