d. You will win your customer’s trust and satisfaction because it will show send out from the domestic warehouse.

 Ⅲ. How many warehouses CJ has over the world and where’s the location?

 Two US-located warehouses and one Germany warehouse.

Until now, CJ has been working on expanding the warehouses both in China and overseas to help dropshippers stock and fulfill the orders. Including two US warehouses, one Germany warehouse, and three warehouses in China.

All of these warehouses can be used by dropshippers to stock inventory with no storage cost and fulfill orders with fast local shipping. As the US and EU markets are the main markets for dropshipping, so the US warehouses and Germany warehouse could be the top choices for you.

· US warehouses

CJ has two warehouses relatively in the east and west of the US. One is in New Jersey and the other is in Chino.

If you choose the US warehouse to ship your products, we usually allocate the closest one for you according to the order destination so that your customers can receive the packages as soon as possible.  You only need to check out for the product costs, CJ will take care of the shipping to the warehouse and the storage.

Our Germany warehouse is located in Frankfurt, but it can ship to other countries in Europe. If your customers are mainly from Europe, the warehouse will be a good choice to ship products from.

If you sell in Europe, you can prepare your private inventory and choose to stock it in our Germany warehouse.

Ⅳ. 4 steps to pre-stock inventory to overseas warehouses.

 You only need a few clicks to get your inventory ready on CJ as this flowchart below.

Step 1. Find your product on the CJ marketplace.

You can search for the product directly on CJ, or post a free sourcing request to let CJ find the supplier for you.

For whom might first hear about “sourcing”, which is also the main function to help dropshippers to find the supplier for their winning product according to the product URL they provide. When the sourcing is finished, you will have the priority to make this product only visible to you.

Every user can enjoy the service for sourcing 5 items free every day. Sourcing service can bring you more opportunities to develop your own winning products from other competitors.

Step 2. Add the items to your purchase list and click Preorder Inventory.

After you target the product, you can go to the product page and click “Bulk Purchase”.

You will see the items you chose are on your purchase list. Now, click the “Preorder Inventory” button to check out.

Step 3. Choose the overseas warehouse to stock them.

Now, you only need to select the warehouse you are going to pre-stock in and submit your request.

Please note that the MOQ for stocking in the US warehouses should be no less than 10pcs for one variant and no less than 100pcs for the total.

And for the Germany warehouse, the product quantity for one SKU is no less than 100pcs.

Step 4. Deduct the inventory directly for your orders.

Well done! Now you have already finished the preparation for private inventory. CJ will help you to purchase, ship, and stock your products in the warehouse.

The next time when you have new orders in, you can deduct the item from your inventory on CJ directly. And the parcel can be delivered to your customer by fast local shipping.

I am having issues with my CJ agent. She doesn't inform me on important changes on products that I have placed orders, eg out of stock etc. I have to find out by myself when its too late. I am seriously thinking of finding another supplier. Can anyone help? Thanks ... See MoreSee Less

𝐃𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐩𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐈𝐬 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞…. 𝐃𝐨 𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐓𝐨 𝐁𝐞 𝐒𝐮𝐜𝐜𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐟𝐮𝐥.⁣

Most people fail with their dropshipping store because they are not unique.⁣

There are so many people starting with dropshipping right now, it’s no longer the secret way of making money online but has become very mainstream.⁣

Everyone wants a piece of it because so many of these “gurus” advertised it as an easy way to earn money online. ⁣

But do you know what the sad thing is?⁣

Most of them don’t put any effort into their dropshipping store.⁣

They open their store, import some products without changing anything, and start advertising.⁣

This means that a lot of people that are dropshipping are selling the same products with the same information they got from maybe even the same dropshipping suppliers.⁣

Of course, having the same product is not a bad thing yet, but to also have the same images, descriptions, and so on will definitely not help you!⁣

So you might be asking yourself “HOW DO I SUCCEED WITH DROPSHIPPING THEN”⁣

Here are a few tips to help you out: ⁣

𝟏 - 𝐁𝐞 𝐔𝐧𝐢𝐪𝐮𝐞⁣

Don’t try to copy everything to save some time! I see people literally copy and paste descriptions from aliexpress suppliers, take content from other stores and copy/paste it on their store and then wonder why they are not getting sales. ⁣

It’s because you are stealing content from other unsuccessful stores, you need to be unique and different and make everything on your store specific to your brand and at the same time personalise it to your customers and buyer persona. ⁣

Some key areas to focus on and unique at with your store are: ⁣

Product Images - Product Descriptions - Site Design - Brand Persona etc⁣

𝟐 - 𝐒𝐨𝐜𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐟⁣

Here’s a sales secret for you, people always buy what others are buying and what that shows us is people look at other customers' opinions and experience before deciding if they should buy your product or not. ⁣

In order to win here, you need to have product reviews and ratings.

A study found that 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations, and 72% of consumers say positive reviews make them trust businesses more.⁣

Millennials, in particular, trust user-generated content 50% more than other media.⁣

This should be enough reason for you to understand how important reviews are and if you want to build a successful store, you need to have reviews. ⁣

𝟑 - 𝐈𝐦𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐯𝐢𝐬𝐞 & 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐎𝐮𝐭

Look at what your competition is doing, what is working for other people, what other stores lack and then improve your store based on your findings. ⁣

This is an easy way to dominate any market and in relation to a dropshipping store, here are a few examples of what I mean: ⁣

- If your competitor doesn’t offer PayPal for checking out, then offer PayPal.⁣

- If your competitor doesn’t have trust badges, then add trust badges.⁣

- If your competitor doesn’t have the basic pages like a refund policy, then add those pages (note: you should always have these pages).⁣

And there are many more examples!⁣

I hope you get my point.⁣

Those were 3 of many tips on how to succeed with dropshipping despite it becoming more and more competitive. ⁣

Hope this helps you, if you have any questions leave them in the comments below and i’d be happy to answer them. ⁣

Wish you all the best.⁣
