The current situation
At present, the global COVID-19 outbreak has become the hottest topic every day, and our work and life have been greatly affected. Especially dropshipping business, as dropshipping is chiefly a logistics and manufacturing outsourcing play.
It is quite easy to see how your deliveries may be affected:
1) The manufacturer cannot have their people go to work because of a lockdown and the item in question is not deemed of high importance. Most of the dropshipping products fall under this category.
2)The warehouse or the wholesaler cannot have their workers fill orders.
3) The transport operator cannot expedite shipments because of the disruption in the supply chains.
So, does dropshipping dead in 2020?
The answer is definitely no, you can see that many peers are still making money and their business is really hot.
What are their secrects?
- I recommend you prepare for delays.
Make a notification on the website to inform your customers, and provide coupons or other ways to appease their emotions. Good customer service will be more necessary in this special period.
- Adjusted the niche market and niche products in time.
People now have more time to browse the content on the Internet. You need to choose the niche product that people most need now. Such as home fitness, protection-related products, health related products.
In addition, as logistics costs increase, you need to find higher-net-value and Lightweight products and to make more profit.
- Find more reliable suppliers and logistics companies.
During the outbreak, using a third-party one-stop order fulfillment center will be more reliable than using AliExpress. Why?
1) Cut your purching cost.
A sourcing agent and purchasing from China’s back end channels such as 1688 and taobao, and a dozen other real supplier marketplaces for half the price.
2)You will have more choices.
Aliexpress by itself, while having a wide variety of items, is still a small subset of whatever China has to offer. Agent can help you sourcing from any Chinese platforms and even from offline factories.
3) Using the agent will be more flexible and can customize your needs.
The product can be checked before pack and ship.
5) You will have more courier choice with faster delivery.
