Dropshipping is a kind of model in which you needn’t stock any inventory. When customers place an order on your online store, you can let your Chinese dropshipping suppliers complete the fulfillment. If your supplier has a local warehouse in your country, the goods will be shipped out from there. Instead, they will be shipped out from China, like out from the Yiwu warehouse.

But in recent years, a kind of new dropshipping business model has become popular. You can buy products in bulk from Chinese suppliers and then store products in suppliers’ warehouses. If you receive an order, you can let your suppliers help you complete the fulfillment. Accordingly, they will charge you a certain proportion of shipping fees, including all costs of packaging and fulfillment.

About the question, how to find a reliable Chinese dropshipping supplier, many posts on Google list a series of websites for your reference, but not mention which one is more suitable. In my post, I will divide the websites into 3 types: well-known websites, new or small-scale platforms, some wholesale websites that may offer dropshipping services.

Attention: enough research about dropshipping suppliers is necessary before you choose one. We couldn’t guarantee the complete legitimacy and reliability of the following recommended dropshipping suppliers.
