It seems that people that can dropship with fast shipping have big capital to start. But what if your capital is small? Feels like china is the only option. But that has 3+ weeks od waiting and that can affect seo and your ad score because customers will get a survey and say that waited a long time. How can you US suppliers like aliexpress that works with anyone without a order history or 50 orders monthly?

Hi @Vvel ,

 

Dani here from Shopify!

 

Thanks for reaching out today. Dropshipping is an awesome business model, especially for new businesses with small amount of capital. Using our app Oberlo you can import products from AliExpress, but what you maybe didn't know is you can actually filter for products shipping from warehouses within the United States. This will save time on shipping, the shipping rates do tend to be a bit more as these suppliers are using USPS to ship instead of a cheaper option like ePacket.

 

To access the products that are available within the US, you'll need to pull up AliExpress.com and use the Oberlo Chrome Extension to add products to your import list. Once on the collection page, you can filter for products that are shipping from the US:

 

 

Another option would be to use a third party app like Spocket. Spocket specializes in products shipping from US and EU suppliers, so generally offer faster shipping options than what you would see for a product coming from China.

 

What type of products are you looking to sell on your store? I'd suggest taking a look at our blog post on how to price your products to ensure you're building a succesful business regardless of the cost of goods. If you're interested, we also have a course Dropshipping 101 that will give you some great tips and tricks from an industry expert.

 

Let me know if you have any further questions, I'd be happy to continue helping you!

 

All the best,

 

Dani

u need to do alot of writing and have huge patience for seo. you have to know if the backlinks ur getting are not pbn. they need to be niche relevant, related keywords have good DR, DA, TF etc and make sure backlinks are from good sites that wont hurt ur score. A good link is useally 130$ but u need alot or super good links which will cost form 300$+ each. where to get these is tough. and how often u backlink is another factor. but u can always do on page seo urself for free and blog once a week. u have to teach yourself how to know if the link ur buying is good because there is alot of rip offs and lies out there. And useally u pay alot for something u can urself easily. A good example is when i pay a shopify expert 50$ to copy n paste a line of a code or 150$ to delete a script from an app i dont use anymore to speed up my site to 70 in which i  deleted more and fixed other issues and made it go up to 90.
