Aliexpress can still be a profitable platform for dropshipping, but it depends on various factors, including the products you choose to sell, your marketing strategy, and your competition.

 

One advantage of Aliexpress is that it offers a wide variety of products at low prices, making it an attractive option for dropshippers looking to source products from overseas suppliers. However, the quality of the products can be inconsistent, and shipping times can be lengthy, which can impact customer satisfaction and repeat business.

 

In addition, Aliexpress has become a popular platform for dropshipping, which has led to increased competition and lower profit margins. To be successful with dropshipping on Aliexpress, it is important to carefully choose your niche and products, target a specific audience, and develop a strong marketing strategy that sets you apart from your competitors.

 

Overall, while Aliexpress can still be a profitable platform for dropshipping, it is important to carefully consider the pros and cons and to develop a solid business strategy that takes into account the unique challenges of this business model.

Aliexpress is still profitable for dropshipping. With this being said, you will need to address the long shipping time.

 

There are several things that you can do to sell well while having less than ideal shipping times: Offer free or discounted shipping: By offering free or discounted shipping, customers may be more willing to wait longer for their products to arrive. Be transparent about shipping times: Let your customer knows the shipping times before they checkout. You can add this on the product description and/or on the FAQ section of your page. Offer products that are difficult to find elsewhere or that have a unique selling point to make up for longer shipping times.
 
Provide excellent customer service, communicate frequently with your customers, and offer incentives to encourage repeat business. This can help build customer loyalty and increase the likelihood that customers will be patient with longer shipping times.
