CJDropshipping should be the best drop shipping supplier that i have ever seen.
1688 is the largest and most complete purchase site in China. They have reasonable price and abundant products. Many products can get a lower price from 1688 because it is the bottom price direct from the factory. Through 1688, nearly 500,000 small and medium sellers to provide products for Amazon, Wish, eBay, AliExpress, and other platforms.
In China, many companies have created a lot of hot-selling products through the advantages of 1688, creating more value and progress to the company. However, with fierce competition, the homogenization of products is serious, and profits are getting lower and lower. It has entered a vicious circle, and the development of new products is getting slower and slower. The number of new products is decreasing. The overall quality is declining, and the products are not under 100% quality inspection. The return of defective products is not guaranteed. The overall price is lower than Taobao and relatively, the corresponding service is also inferior to Taobao.
Taobao is the largest e-commerce retail platform in Asia. It has 500 million register users and over 1 billion online products. 80,000 packages were sold per minute, accounting 78% of the market share. The platform has strict policies with the sellers. Some of those sellers cooperate with the factory to get inventory, but most of them have no inventory. They import products from 1688 to their own store, when they have ordered, they shipped out products through 1688 to complete the orders. The advantage of Taobao is that they have cheaper price and better service than the real stores, but the disadvantage is that the sellers are not the manufacturer, therefore the price is available for consumers but not for wholesales and dropshipping.
It is another site of CJDropshipping, it integrated with Shopify, WooCommerce, ShipStation, eBay, Amazon, Wix, Weebly, EcWid, etc. Products can be listed to your store just by few clicks.
5. Some other drop shipping suppliers in Facebook
There are a lot of drop shipping supplier came from Aliexpress, they are also interested in drop shipping business when they are running Aliexpress stores because you guys putting note on each orders.
They might accept only excel file orders or some other Chinese ERP like Dianxiaomi. It is a good way to work with these people if you had done some research about them. Please do not trust them so fast, because they just small vendors, most of them just 2-3 people. There is a possibility they run away once you paid them trough wire transfer.
You might confuse how to use 1688 or Taobao, since all of them are Chinese. You can not talk with them and you can not place the drop shipping orders, you can not pay through credit card. Here i recommend one awesome tool, CJ Chrome Extension.
