How to Blind Dropship from Aliexpress (hide the supplier + hide the price!)

How to Blind Dropship from Aliexpress (hide the supplier + hide the price!)


Hey, guys. In this video, I’m gonna teach you how to
blindly dropship from AliExpress and you may have noticed that I’m in a bit of a different
location. I’m actually filming this from New York. For those of you that don’t know, blind dropshipping
is the phrase used to describe when a dropshipper ships an item without adding any form of identification
or marketing in the package so that the customer doesn’t know where it came from. You see, a common concern that a lot of people
discuss on our YouTube videos is that they are concerned that the AliExpress supplier
will leave a form of marketing in the package identifying that it was them that was selling
the item and not you. People will then see this and get upset with
you reselling an item cheaper to them. Here is a comment someone left on one of our
recent videos basically voicing this concern. So, of course, the solution to this is that
you need to get the supplier to not include any marketing materials in the package identifying
that it was them, i.e., you need to get them to blindly dropship. So in this video, I’m gonna do two things. Firstly, I’m gonna teach you how to get a
supplier to blindly dropship an item for you and secondly, I’m gonna show you what it looks
like for the customer when they receive an item that has been blindly dropshipped. To do that, I’m gonna order a bunch of items
from AliExpress using the quick method that I’m gonna be teaching you at the start of
this video. To do this, I’m gonna be doing an AliExpress
unboxing or unpackaging video so that you can exactly see what the customer receives
when they order an item from you. So, let’s jump straight into it. All right, let me switch over to my computer
screen and show you just how easy it is to get your items blindly dropshipped from AliExpress. Getting your items blindly dropshipped is
super simple. All you have to do is go to the checkout page
in AliExpress. There, you can leave a message for your supplier. Simply ask them to not include an invoice
or marketing material with the package and ask them to please blindly dropship the item. Super duper simple. You see, the sellers on AliExpress are used
to working with dropshippers so they understand our needs and know how to ship packages out
for us. You see, AliExpress suppliers love working
with dropshippers because they know that we can do a huge amount of volume for them so
don’t be afraid that they won’t understand your request. And this is another good reason why it’s important
to pick a supplier that has a good feedback score and this is something that I discuss
in depth in my video, “The Six Tips to Dropshipping on AliExpress” and I will have a link to that
video in the description below. Basically, you want to be looking for suppliers
that have a feedback score between 2,000 to 2 million. If you pick a supplier that has a feedback
score above 2,000, then you know that they are experienced, established, and are almost
certainly working or have worked with dropshippers. And if you pick a supplier that has a feedback
score of less than two million, then you know that they’re not doing insane amounts of volume
and so they’re gonna be more attentive to the messages that people leave on their orders. And if you wanna be doubly safe, then you
can message the supplier in advance and ask them directly if they do blind dropshipping. And suppliers in this feedback range are the
sweet spot because you know that they are reliable enough to reply but not too busy
to reply. All right. So now that we have gone through how to blindly
dropship, I’m gonna switch over and do an AliExpress unboxing so that you can see what
the customer receives when they order a package. Okay, I have here a package that I have ordered
from AliExpress and I ordered it using ePacket shipping. Well, as you can see on the front, there is
absolutely no advertising indicating what supplier I purchased it from or that I purchased
it from AliExpress at all. It just looks like a general address label. And if you look on the back, you’ll see that
there is absolutely no advertising on it at all. So now, I am going to open this so that you
can see that inside, there is absolutely no advertising material. Inside, this is what we see. Now, I’m gonna open this up as well. Tada. We have a self-stir mug, and as you can see,
there was absolutely no advertising material in it at all, so you have no idea where it
came from. And if you are a long-time subscriber of Wholesale
Ted, you will probably recognize this mug. All right, I have another package from AliExpress
and as you can see, there is no advertising material on the package at all. If we go around the back, you will see, there
is only an address label. And again, it does not give the buyer any
information about where they could go to purchase this. Okay, so let’s open this up and see what’s
inside. So when I open up the package, this what we
see. Once again, no advertising material on it
at all. Now let’s open it up. Tada. And this is what we have inside. If you are a long-time subscriber of Wholesale
Ted, you will probably also recognize this. This here is a travel mug that looks like
a camera lens and again, there is no packaging inside which would indicate where it was from. So this here is another package from AliExpress. As you can see, there is no information on
the front of it or advertising that would indicate where it is from so the customer
would not be able to go there directly themselves. If we switch it over, you will also see that
there is absolutely no advertising on the back either. So let’s open it up inside and see what we
find. So I’ve opened it up and this is what I have
inside. As you can see, there is no advertising on
the item at all and if we flip it over, there is no advertising there either so the customer
would have no idea where it came from. And just to double check, inside the package,
there is absolutely nothing as well. Here is another package from AliExpress. As you can see, there is no advertising on
the front at all and if we switch it over to the back, you will see that there is absolutely
no advertising on it at all. So the customer would have no idea where to
go and buy it from. Let’s open it up inside and see if there is
any advertising inside. So I have opened it up and it is a key keyring
and on the package, there is no advertising and if we switch it over, there is, once again,
no advertising. And if we want to double check inside the
package, there is no advertising either. So again, the customer would have no idea
where you got this from. It has been dropshipped blindly. All right, so I hope that you appreciated
that AliEpress unboxing video and that you can see that a seemingly complicated problem
has a very simple fix. And the thing is I’ve noticed that there a
lot of people that get held back by stuff like this. There are a lot of people who have left messages
that they haven’t started with this business because they’ve been afraid that their customers
were going to receive marketing or invoices and then discover where they truly got the
item from. But a little bit of research reveals that
this is actually a really easy problem to overcome and that’s the funny thing. If you encounter a roadblock like this, don’t
stop. Instead, try to find a solution and it’s almost
certainly going to be simpler than you thought. Thanks for watching this video. If you liked it, I’d appreciate it if you

  1. Hi everybody, as you've known, Aliexpress doesn't accept Paypal. I'm currently using my local visa for payment on Aliexpress but that is no ideal. So which way of payment do you recommend me? Thank you

  2. Good video but it would have been nice to see an unboxing of what package looks like with invoice and marketing materials too.

  3. One question, not sure if you can help me but when you import your products for example from oberlo to shopify, is it best to change the original sku number? or can we just leave the sku the same as the supplier to save time? What is the best and smartest thing to do? Does it make a difference?

  4. How about if you intend to drop ship with a third party like Kmart or Big W o Target or Amazon? Not to sell on Amazon but to purchase through them. Is it possible for them to blindly drop ship. I have a thought that Amazon use a branded box, not sure on that one.

  5. Do you know if aliexpress suppliers will put the dropshipping sellers address on the package instead of a China address…. does that matter for ebay or amazon dropshipping?

  6. 1 question and i will look so stupid. But i cant seem to find 'suppliers feedback score'. I only seem to find a total rating scheme of the product and the positive feedback rate but not the sales rate with the symbols from 2:36

  7. Beautiful, nice do and dress. Reshoot after you loose the black spiral staircase which is the crafty negative message you do not want to send, love you.

  8. hey, do you know how to blind dropship from Amazon? They say you can just choose to buy it as a gift, but the name of Amazon is still there. Thanks

  9. You're awesome Sarah! I had no idea we were supposed to do this! I just assumed they didn't send the invoice with the products when we dropshipped them. Thank God I saw your video! 😂🤦

  10. what I wanna know is how will I know when the package arrives to my customers because aliexpress will ask to confirm payment when package arrives?

  11. Hi Sarah, what about label stating that it was sent from address in China? Do you inform your customers that the product is sent from China? ,🤔😃

  12. Hey,
    what about the price? I could see a price on one of the packages. Is that bad and how can i prevent this?
    If i can't always prevent, do i tell the customer this is to avoid customs or do i have to be honest?
    Thanks!

  13. Thanks again for some great content here ! Can I send out my marketing material, including a copy of the invoice to my aliexpress source, and ask them to pack that up in the order , so that when my customer receives it, it will be my brand name and my marketing stuff ? That way, while the customer will notice that the product is shipped from China, but it would contain the same brand that they saw on my page….does this work ?

  14. I think I have a different idea of what "no advertising" means. I clearly can see this is shipped from China. Most customers can. They also have to declare the VALUE of the contents.. another giveaway.

  15. Having a china address etc on the From section of the mailing label DOES let them know where it came from! Seriously!

  16. Hey does anyone know about getting aliexpress to blind dropship? They people I'm working with say that their logo isnt on the object itself, but on their bag it ships in. :/

  17. Hi !
    I wonder what you think of the ORDER US VALUE on the shipping label. This could induce my customer into thinking the product is less valuable than what he paid for. What are your suggestions ?
    Thanks !

  18. I have a question… Do we place orders manually for each and every sale made on our website? I can see we can place automatically when we receive an order, but how?

  19. 5.56 there is product value US 2$( in the package) so the costumer gonna see 2$ value of the product and he buyet for 19,99$

  20. Where do you find those AliExpress seller ratings in points? There are no such ratings on the AliExpress seller pages… or is it just the total amount of feedback?

  21. Hi, great value video, i have a question regarding single product website , i am totally new so i am confused about the product name , these products are whitelable , or we have to sell them by there own name ? so we create single product website of there on there product name ? please reply as soon as possible ?

  22. When using Oberlo to source from Aliexpress, do you need to comment that you want them to do blind shipping on every order you do manually or you can do it just once and they will do it all the time?

  23. PLEASE HELP 😰 Hey Sarah! So I've been trying to understand how it works when you are dropshipping a product that has a brand name and product name already. Wouldn't the customer upon receiving the product see that and want to look it up then?? Also what about on my store? Do I just make my own name for it and kinda hide the original or use the brand and product name there too??? also I have checked to see if it's been patented and didn't find any results so that's good right?

  24. Hello:) but when the customers look at the tracking code they maybe see that the product is from China. What can we do for that issue ?:)

  25. At 5:59 I thought it was a cheeky Facebook logo in the top left corner of the epacket haha.
    Also wouldn't the customer be able just to google the Chinese address where the package was from and find out the details? Also maybe quiz us just for fun?
    I'm really trying to figure what type of address should be placed on the Shopify store and email marketing material, please help! 🙂

  26. hey, i've a que. SO we ask our supplier not to send any invoice with the product, then how will the product clear custom in customer's country, They will ask for invoice. and since the order is placed by us from aliexpress, the invoice will show the aliexpress price, say im selling a product for 10$ and purchasing it from aliexpress for 5$, so the invoice must contain 5$ that will be sent to my cutomer. Please Reply

  27. @Wholesale Ted
    Will it say the amount you paid for the item on the package though? If so, how do you get around this please. Thank you. And to clarify, I mean is there any indication of pricing on the actual package for customs or shipping purposes. Because it looked like it in some of your still frames. Thanks again.

  28. Unfortunately, they can't hide their brand labels on clothes 🙁
    I don't know how to solve this. Anyone got a solution please help <3

  29. They see the price which is cn 22 and also it has chinese writing on it. Does that matter to customers? Also how do you deal with people that have something against ordering from CHina and not our 'own' country?
