Dropshipping within the United States has its own benefits which should not be missed at any cost and we will discuss it in this article. As the Covid-19 pandemic is continuously taking its heavy toll on the health of people all over the globe, people are losing their trust in Chinese suppliers while the shipping of goods globally is also halted. However, there are suppliers still operating in the US region and you can still dropship your goods from US specific suppliers that will help you in your sales.
When you are searching and importing products with the Oberlo app there are two things you must need to keep in mind. Firstly, you must select the shipping from as ‘United States’ from the options as shown in the following image. This will filter out and show only the products that have shipping from the US available. You will also need to remove variants that ship from China later on in your Oberlo’s dashboard if you want your products to be shipped exclusively from the United States of America. We will explain in the next section how to do it.
Secondly, if you need to import your products from highly reliable suppliers which is the usual practice by dropshippers then sort out the product list to view products from suppliers getting a high number of orders and ratings. This will give you the list of products sorted according to the number of orders placed for products on AliExpress. There are other filter options that you can also try such as listing products with a specific price range as shown in the image below.
Once you have the products listed with the above requirements, start importing them with the Oberlo extension. Now, your import list will have products that are in high demand with United states shipping.
Importing products with the above filters will still give you the option to ship some variants of products from China or other countries such as Spain, France, Russia, etc. However, we want our products that ship only within the US. Therefore, you will now need to log in to your Shopify account and follow the steps below.
Once you are logged in to your Shopify account just go to your Oberlo’s dashboard and open the import list which will show your recently imported products.
After opening the import list just go to the “Variants” tab as shown in the image below.
You will now notice that there are some variants that also ship from China or other countries. Now, all you have to do is deselect the variants that ship from other countries other than the US.
This is it, your products will now have exclusive shipping only within the United States. Add the new product to your store and your customers will now receive products that are shipped within the US.
This will resolve the increasing lack of trust due to Covid-19 for the items being shipped from China or other countries. Also, your business will be immune to international shipping delays due to air and sea routes being closed amid the pandemic. We hope you stay safe and stay at home while dropshipping and still make sales with good returns. Start dropshipping with your new Shopify store and order it now.
