Capital for time gap in customer and drop shipper purchase?

Hey guys!

I'm going to be drop shipping from Aliexpress, and I want to know what is "common practice" for drop shippers dealing with the time gap between buying your customers products on Aliexpress and actually receiving payment from your customers. From what I understand, there is a two to four day gap from when your customers purchase a product on your online store to when funds actually get transferred to your bank account. Do you typically just use your own money to facilitate that gap? Because I wouldn't think that you would want to wait until the customers funds arrive in your account to actually facilitate the purchase on Aliexpress. Any insights?
