Hello everyone, I would like to raise a question about selling branded products that are available in Aliexpress for Dropshipping business.
At this stage, I have planned to start dropshipping business and designed a store with Shopify. Now I am adding products Aliexpress products through Oberlo App. For the better product selection, I have found some branded products in Oberlo which are finally linked to Aliexpress. So I have selected some of the branded products because of their quality and better customer reviews. Some of the branded products are:
- Samsung wireless charger
- Casio watch
- Huawei smart watch
- Amazfit watch Etc.
But now on my second thought before opening the store, I googled about selling branded products and found that I am not authorized to sell a brand products unless I am an authorized dealer/distributor (though dropshipping is not mentioned there), but in Aliexpress they are available for sell and dropship.
So my question is:
Can I legally sell the above mentioned branded products which are listed in Aliexpress, by adding into my store and dropshipping them in USA/Europe from China?
Yes, you may sell branded products on your store but on the safe side, I wouldn’t recommend it.
When you decide on selling branded items, you will probably have to secure a license or a certificate from the company authorizing or certifying you as an official re-seller or distributor of their product.
I hope this was helpful. Good luck.
