I've setup a shop linked to oberlo.
Some of the things I sell are aimed at babies and toddlers.
Most of the suppliers are sending from china. How do we as uk drop shippers protect ourself and customers from shody goods and ensure they have a CE mark on them. I have 60 products, soon to expand on this number and many different suppliers from china.
Also there are companies like bigbuy which dropship from eu warehouses. Does that mean then that all their products will have the ce mark if they are coming from europe and not china?
This seems bit of a mine field and potentially putting me off the whole idea.
Advice needed please
Hi @goodhead! Gabby here from the Community Engagement team at Spocket.
Your sentiments regarding credibility is definitely understandable - if I were a merchant sourcing out a number of items from a supplier, I'd want to make sure that the products are of quality and the suppliers themselves are reliable. Given this, there are various action plans you could consider looking into doing to know if the supplier can be trusted:
Given all these, is Oberlo your only choice for the items you're looking for? Have you had the chance to check Spocket out? Regarding safety, credibility, and reliability, Spocket is one of the few dropshipping apps in existence that you can trust. Why is this?
And regarding the items you're looking for, we also have quite a number of suppliers on the platform who offer a wide selection of baby and toddler items, which ship faster than Oberlo's products. Shipping with Spocket comes in variants of 1-3 days, 3-5 days, and 4-7 days.
If this piqued your interest and you want to personally explore these features of Spocket and more, you can head on over to the app's official website!
