Why recommend dropshipping agents over Aliexpress suppliers
Choosing suppliers has always been a headache for dropshippers, so why do we always recommend you to choose an agent as your supplier but not Aliexpress suppliers?
1) Agents have Contacts of different suppliers
The main difference between an agent and suppliers of Aliexpress is that an agent can supply you with all kinds of products, but a supplier only stocks their own products. This will save you so much time that you can focus on fixing stores, running ads and choosing the products you want to test.
2) Packing and Delivery
After receiving the products, professional agents will do quality check to make sure the ones they receive is in good quality and meet the requirements of dropshippers. For electronic products agents will do electrify test. For plastic products agents will do violent test. Professional agents will also check if there is any Chinese info on the package,
Therefore dropshipping agents often ensures that your orders are better and neater packaged and delivered faster to the customers than Aliexpress suppliers. Agents know the best way to pack different products like the fragile things to protect the product. So you will avoid customer complaints about broken products and long delivery time.
3) Fast and Efficient Customer service
Furthermore, with possible returns or wrong deliveries there is much better and faster contacts with dropshipping agents than with the various suppliers. They will contact logistic companies to try to fix your problems, this ensures that all problems are solved faster. With possible refund policy, agents will take good care of the after sale problems.
4) Different shipping options
Another reason is that dropshipping agents provide you different shipping options, it makes it possible to have more choices for your customers and you can decide which way is the best for you to benefit most.
Last but not the least, an agent ensures proper processing of vat since the new rules of EU IOSS number since July 1, 2021. With a supplier you have to take care of all these taxes yourself.
All in all,dropshipping agents can be the only person you need to communicate since they will handle everything for you in China to save your time and energy so you can focus on ads/marketing etc... That’s not what Aliexpress suppliers are capable of.
