Hey @online-Eezie!

 

Gabe here from Shopify, and a great question there!

 

So from what I gather, you are dropshipping to South Africa using AliExpress and any products being shipped to South Africa from the suppliers are getting an expensive shipping rate in AliExpress/Oberlo, is that correct?

 

You should be able to choose from different shipping rates on Ali such as epacket or free shipping or China Mail. See an example here:

 

01-24-zmy76-f31na

 

You can actually filter products by the epacket shipping method and I would recommend using the Chrome Extension too.

 

If these options are not available for a particular product then this is often as a result of that particular supplier and you may have to shop around until you find a reasonable shipping rate with a different supplier.

 

See more on the above Shipping rates here.

 

Hope that helps a bit!

All the best, Gabe
