In this video, I cover three alternatives to AliExpress for dropshipping. AliExpress is a great tool to get started with dropshipping and to get a feel for the business model. However, it is not an optimal fulfillment strategy when you start getting a lot of orders and want to provide a good customer experience. Each of these Aliexpress alternatives has a different level of barrier-to-entry and provide different benefits for your business.
The first method I cover is Oberlo suppliers. Using Oberlo suppliers allows you to avoid going through AliExpress and streamlines your fulfillment by allowing you to one-click order for all your orders. However, the downside is that the products are priced at a markup relative to AliExpress and there can still be processing delays.
The second alternative I cover is the use of dropshipping agents in China. This is a method that I use personally for my dropshipping stores, and it is very efficient. This is the cheapest method for dropshipping internationally. Dropshipping agents buy in bulk from the source and ship your orders for you. If you have at least 50 orders per day and looking for an agent to help you scale, I recommend EcommOps: www.ecommops.com
The last alternative that I cover is the use of fulfillment centers. With fulfillment centers, you buy inventory in bulk from AliBaba.com and send it to a fulfillment center. This is the best alternative for building a long-term business, having full control over your inventory and offering fast shipping times. I've used ShipBob.com for one of my stores and had a great experience, allowing me to offer delivery in under 7 days in the US. However, the main downside is that you need to distribute your inventory effectively if you're shipping internationally.
