[Banned?] Aliexpress Alternative For Shopify Dropshipping 2019 (eCommerce Guide)


in this video I will tell you about the horror
stories of dropshippers using aliexpress then i am going to share with you my story how
i almost got banned from dropshippingbecause of bad supplier then i am going to teach you
how to find a good supplier and finally how to fulfill orders hey ivy zhu here so first i wanna start off
with little bit of proof so you guys know that everything i am about to teach you is
coming from my own personal experience so as you guys can see i have almost 14500 orders
since i started dropshipping so what to expect from this video so first i am going to talk
to you about horror stories of other dropshippers using aliexpress and why aliexpress bad then
i am going to tell you my personal horror story with 3rd party suppliers then i am going
to tell you why you should get a 3rd party supplier and how to find a good supplier and
then finally how to fulfil orders with a supplier step by step aliexpress horror stories there
are people who have over 2000 orders and as you can see 90 of them just werent shipped
out the supplier from aliexpress just gave them fake tracking numbers right so this one
at the top he got scammed for over 10 20 thousand dollars or even more so why you shouldnt be
using aliexpress for dropshipping well because its just more expensive because you pay for
each product one by one instead of bulk ordering also if you scale with aliexpress and you
get a paypal hold usually you will just get a higher hold higher percentage or they will
hold more money from you because paypal will notice that you are a aliexpress dropshipper
and they are more strict with them so why you shouldnt be using aliexpress for dropshipping
is also because of long processing times aliexpress suppliers they are also dropshippers for other
dropshippers so thats why you know they can have 5 to 10 day processing times which will
cost you a lot of disputes, refunds, chargebacks and you will also get a ton of emails from
your customers asking about where is their order and it will usually mean that you will
have to spend hours replying to your customers or you will have to hire more VAs another
problem is they dont usually communicate with you they dont respond to your messages they
dont even message you so thats also a problem because they dont tell you like how much in
stock they have they dont tell you anything another big problem is that with aliexpress
suppliers you will have longer delivery times which will cause lower facebook customer feedback
score this is kinda a new feature on facebook and basically if you have low customer feedback
score facebook can ban your facebook page also theycan lower reach and make you facebook
ads more expensive and this is something that happened to me personally so i am gonna talk
about it in just a bit use aliexpress only if you are beginner or if you use it to test
just a few products so i recommend if you are a beginner using the app dsers which is
just free its better than oberlo or dropified from what i heard cuz its just free and you
dont have to pay anything for that and once you get to like 30 orders or more per day
you should switch to a 3rd party supplier a dropshipping agent those usually arent on
aliexpress usually as a dropshipper you first start off on aliexpress then you get a 3rd
party supplier or dropshipping agent and once you grow even more you can also then move
into holding stock or private label and building a brand and things like that so now lets talk
about my personal horror story how i almost got banned because of bad suppliers so just
a little bit back story i worked with this supplier back in june 2018 when i scaled to
1 to 2K a day when i was still a newbie when i was just starting out in october 2018 as
you guys can see i basically scaled very fast from 0 to over 10 000 dollars a day when i
scaled so fast i thought everything is going to be fine .i already worked with that supplier
for a couple of months and i never had any issue with him so i thought he is going to
ship in 3days as he promised what really happened is 10 to 14 days into scaling i started to
get lots of emails like 50 to 100 emails a day i started to get disputes also during
the same time i also got a paypal hold and a rolling reserve on paypal because i was
using only paypal the thing is stripe or shopify payments is not available in my country and
with my VA virtual assistant basically we found out that we had around 15 to 20 day
processing time and what is processing time is basically from the day you get the order
to the day when the product ships out so you know customers lets say customers on the first
of october they would order and what would happen is my supplier would ship them out
on the 15th or 20th so nothing would happening for 15 to 20 days the customers wouldnt get
any email they wouldnt get any tracking and they start to wonder is this a scam what is
happening with my order and they started really emailing me a lot 50 to 100 per day or sometimes
even more so i knew this supplier i cant work with him anymore so in november i started
to work with a new 3rd party supplier and again they told me they would ship in 2 to
3 days once the product first arrive which would take around a week you know for them
to get it from the factories to their warehouses and then once its in their warehouse they
can ship it in 2 to 3days I thought everything is going to be fine but this time i started
checking on them more and we found out that again we had 15 to 20 day processing times
and when you have 15 to 20 day processing time it means nothing happens for 15 to 20
days and then you ship it out with epacket which takes another 15-20 days so realistically
my delivery times were around 30 to 35 days during november i started to notice my ads
just started to get very expensive i was also getting 50-100 emails per day and i had to
hire 4 full time VAs to just manage all those emails and i was also getting paypal disputes
every single day i got a notification and basically facebook just told me that they
are lowering my reach making my facebook ads more expensive and at the time my customer
feedback score was around 1.5 basically when you have the facebook customer score at 1
or below 1 you facebook page will be banned from advertising and can do is they can also
ban your domain so your store domain

  14. I want to learn alot more but I'm very slow I'm guna try dropshipping I'm doing a ton of research would be nice to have some help

  15. Hi Ivy, love the video. Just subscribed. I’m currently trying to figure out what the heck is it that I want to sell online, how to setup…basically where to start. Just need advice. Don’t want to work for someone the rest of my life. Your video was very informative and made sense. Gotta find that one product to scale…Keep up the good work sir! #iveleague

  16. Thank you for this. Im just starting off. I'm about to unimportant my Alli Express items & use my vendor list from Bossy Coins♡

  17. is aliexpress ok if you want to buy a few products for yourself only? They have good prices on nail products.

  18. I have seen many shopify store not focusing on writing good product description, instead most of them copy each other. as a result stores lose many traffic.

  19. well to not get banned im new in this but i think to take like one country example united states and take few products and see how it works and then slowly with time try expand it

  20. Though, I live in the UK and they say that the time shipping is from 20 to 40 days. Otherwise for 7-15 days the shipping is between 17 and 78. That's crazy, that's insane.

  21. My new fav eComm page.. Everyone just tells you the good stuff and how to win, they don’t tell you how to secure these wins #IvyLeague

  22. If you wake up one morning and have 100 orders, does that mean that you need to start filling out information on your own to have all those orders shipped out or does the product automatically ship once the customer place their order?

  23. Great video, Ivy. Really helpful for people starting their dropshiping stores. I have my very own brand with branded products and then I found this  WMP eyewear brand and added sunglasses and glasses to my fashion shop. It was really winning strategy for me.

  24. You are making 6 figures. Why would you have a youtube channel. I really don't understand this. Just invest in stocks, real estate. Go party man…

  25. I am new to ecommerce and just created my website. I found your video super informative and full of great recommendations. Thank you for the video.

  26. Hey Ivy, I can't find your FB group and your links that I click are not working for me…suggestions? I just get a blank page. FB says this: We couldn't find anything for ivyzhufbgroup. Thanks – love the video!

  27. This video really help me to start! You are the only one who talks about the failures and why!! I’m super grateful for this vid

  28. Great quality video. Thanks mate. The sentence "this course will only be for serious people" tells me the course will be quite expensive. I'll stick with the free content. 👍

  29. Thinking of starting this business, but have no idea how at all. Thank u for this, at least i have some idea

  30. Awesome video bro, thank you 🙂
    Can you please tell me how to check the customer feedback store?
    anyone else knows this?

  31. Im just starting off with dropshopping and my launch date is on the 6/20. I would avoid using Aliexpress period!

  32. hi, Ivy Zhu so I had purchased an alidropship custom store just 3 days ago before I saw you on facebook and subscribe to your channel, so what can I do now? and do you have any strategy I can use for my alidropship store

  33. Stopped dropshipping awhile ago. Got tired of answering emails from customers looking for their stuff. The long shipping times are not acceptable to most consumers. Many customers who were upset about the long lead time, ended up never buying at my store again.

  34. Hi! Ivy Zhu, I am a beginner for Drop shipping. I would like to ask If Amazon is also suggested third party supplier? Are you familiar with sales funnel? How do we use that.

  35. no such thing as real drop shipping they sell you at their RRP only. you just become another middle man and charge a markup
