Hi, I'm starting with my free account for doing dropshipping but in this moment I'm thinking that maybe is not safe doing with Aliexpress for COVID and their send times.
Am i wrong?
Or they're sending without problems at this time?

Hey there,
I think it depends what you are planning to dropship.
I have had some customers waiting 2+ months for items that have said they have been shipped but with a few test orders one item came in 1 month, two in 2 weeks and still waiting on a few other items going on 5 weeks.
So it really depends. Personally I am going to take a step back and have stopped putting ads out there as it is to unknown. I am new to all of this as well and it seems the pros are saying it’s a good time to build your store. Which I think I agree with. So I’m just going to keep adding to my store and tweaking things to look nice. If you haven’t t launched I would wait, continue on Shopify free trial and just perfect your store.
Good luck :)

Hi @NayeVHz, I'm Larry from the team at Spocket


COVID-19 is definitely causing some delays for products from AliExpress which means that customers may have to wait long times to get their orders.
