Accepting credit cards, warehouses, and shipping and fulfilling orders
Yes, dropshipping mode will be easy to start but difficult to go longer
As it's not easy to control quality and make your own brand
For selling your own products, Fulfillment service is important
If you are selling worldwide, and product are made in China
Stock your product in a Chinese fulfillment center which can ship internationally is a best choice
However, as it's international shipping, much more complex than shipping inside a country
1. Cheap shipping way is slow and fast shipping way is expensive, which mean you need to consider about if you have enough profit to offer shipping
2. Some kinds of product are not allow to ship, such as powder, liquid, battery(some shipping agent said they can , but risk will be a lot).
3. Risk for custom problem
Some good idea:
1. Big size but light weight item can be used epacket, EMS as these shipping way don't charge by volume
2. Heavy or bulk products selling is possible as some special shipping line exist , such as : Road Freight To Door(tax free) to EU, Ocean Freight To Door(tax free) to US
3. For higher valuer product, Fast shipping way such as DHL(2-5 days) may be not as expensive as you think. For example, in dshipchina , DHL to USA 0.5kg-18.37 USD, 1kg-22.59USD, 40kg-249.69USD
1. international shipping knowledge
