Shipping Lines Comparison Mid 2020-CJPacket/ePacket/CNE/Yanwen/4PX/Yun Express

In this article, we’re going to compare 6 hot shipping lines for dropshipping in 2020. They are CJPacket, ePacket, CNE, Yanwen, 4PX, and Yun Express. We will compare their delivery times, shipping costs as well as dispute policies.

First, let’s see the current delivery times of these 6 shipping lines, we check 20 tracking numbers randomly for every line to 7 major countries. These data were processed from real tracking numbers in the past two months for those orders placed on the CJ platform. Because the tracking numbers picked were just a random part of all, so the shipping times don’t stand for all orders, a few may be faster, a several may be slower, but this table stands for the general shipping times for these 6 lines. 

We didn’t have many parcels to Australia, Canada, and Italy by CNE, for a precise purpose, We did not provide the estimated shipping times of CNE to these 3 countries. 

We can see that to all these countries, CJPacket had very good shipping times, CNE and 4PX had not a bad performance, but Yun Express and Yanwen had obvious longer shipping times, and ePacket had the longest shipping times, that its fastest times were even longer than CJPacket’s slowest times. There is a comment on the ePacket that the “e” stands for eternity, funny.

The US is the biggest market for dropshipping, so the delivery times to the US are concerned by many dropshippers. The normal shipping times to the US by CJPacket were 5-12 before the coronavirus and Christmas season. It had delays during the past months, but now it has very promising shipping times than other lines, with amazing numbers, 3-5 days! The delivery times of CJPacket were 6-15 days before, but now it got big progress in shipping times.

Next came Yanwen, the delivery times are 6-14 in August, many of the orders were shipped for more than 20 days by ePacket, more than 15 days by Yun Express, and no less than 10 days by CNE and 4PX.

France is the second biggest market of dropshipping business regarding CJ, so the delivery times to France by CJPacket were obvious faster than other lines, 7-10days, many in 7 days. For other European countries, CNE and 4PX got competitive shipping times as CJPacket.

Good news is, the shipping times to Canada were back to normal, 6-15 days by CJPacket, it had horrible delays in the past few months, 15-25days by CJPacket. But other shipping lines still got very long shipping times, most were not delivered in 15 days.

Next, let’s check the delivery times trends of CJPacket, ePacket, Yun Express, and Yanwen to the US from Jan. To August 2020. Yun Express had better performance than CJPacket in the first 3 months, but from April, the shipping times of Yun Express and Yanwen had great ups and downs, and ePacket had ridiculous long shipping times in May and June due to the quarantine. By contrast, the trends for CJPacket shipping times were on a steady decline.

Dispute policies
The next part is about dispute policies. Different carriers have different dispute policies, some have loose policies and some have very strict policies that may take more than one week to settle your problem, that is really annoying, because your customers are waiting for the parcels, and they don’t have the patience.

CJPacket has a very loose dispute policy, they have a team to follow the parcels that aren’t delivered in time. And once they find the parcels missing or damaged during shipping, the CJ dispute team will resend or refind on the same day.

While Yun Express usually takes 8-10 days to check the problem and a very long time for disputing. Yanwen also has a long dispute time, and a greater chance to lose parcels than Yun Express.

Shipping costs
The last part is about the shipping costs. Let’s take the normal product to the US for example, for products weighing 100 grams, CJPacket charges $4.14, Yanwen costs 10 cents more, and ePacket is the most expensive one. For products weighing 100 grams, the cost difference is not obvious. But for products weighing 500 grams and 1000 grams, the cost difference could be 1-2 dollars. For products weighing 500 grams, ePacket charges the least, CJPacket only costs 2 cents more, but as we shared in the former part, the shipping times of CJPacket to the US are much faster. And for 1000 grams, CJPacket has the most competitive price. These prices are for normal products, for electronic and battery contained products, CJPacket, Yun Express, and Yanwen cost the same, but please note that ePacket can only deliver normal products. For products contain liquid, cream, and the like, the costs may be different, you can check with CJ Shipping Calculation here.

Now the shipping costs are still very high, they are still “COVID-19” prices. But the trend is downward, the shipping costs declined steadily. CJPacket is going to adjust its charge in the near future, the prices will be very competitive.

That’s the end of today’s sharing.

What should dropshippers do?
What are the best Oberlo alternatives?
1. DSers
2. CJ Dropshipping
3. NicheDropshipping
4. Spocket
5. Printify
Today we got breaking news for dropshippers. Oberlo, one of the most well-known apps on Shopify will officially close its entry on June 15th, 2022.

Oberlo has been a successful dropshipping app. It provides a convenient method for store owners to fulfill orders with AliExpress.

Among all the various dropshipping apps on the market, Orberlo has got a great reputation in the community. It has helped countless people become successful entrepreneurs.

However, the sites will officially shut down on June 15th. For the people who are currently on a paid Oberlo subscription plan, they can cancel it now and get a refund.

What should dropshippers do?
There are many possibilities for Oberlo to make such a decision. And shutting down the Oberlo app doesn’t mean the Oberlo company is going to shut down.

We will talk about this topic in our latest articles and share some insights about the dropshipping industry in the short future.

For now, Oberlo will shut down soon. If you are one of the entrepreneurs who have been using Oberlo, you need to think about what to do next and find a solution for the incoming event as soon as possible.

In this article, we will present some best dropshipping sites as alternatives for Oberlo. If you wish to take this challenge as an opportunity with a new service provider, this is the chance.

If you are not using Oberlo, the event may also lead you to some deep thoughts about the industry. In case your current supplier or service provider got the same situation in the future, preparing in advance is always a good choice.

What are the best Oberlo alternatives?
1. DSers
On the official Oberlo FAQ page, Oberlo has suggested the users migrate to a trusted Shopify partner, DSers.

DSers is a dropshipping app that provides multistore management. You can use it to manage most dropshipping platforms such as Shopify, Wix, and Woocommerce.

Just like Oberlo, DSers allows you to sync orders from your store to AliExpress and then fulfill the orders in a more convenient way.

Also, you can use DSers to source the products on AliExpress. Instead of sourcing products on your own, using DSers will save you a lot of time to locate the specific product you want among the massive category.

In addition, DSers is also available for data transferring from Oberlo. If you wish to migrate your Oberlo account data to DSers, you can do it directly on the Oberlo admin home page.

What makes DSers unique?
Good Chrome extension
Multiple store order manage
Optimizing sourcing time
Allow data migration from Oberlo
Good chrome extension
Still, DSers is not the best choice if you wish to save your budget and justify the cost. This is because if you want to fully use the functions of DSers to manage more than 3 stores, you will need to subscribe to the paid plan first.

2. CJ Dropshipping
CJ Dropshipping is a one-stop dropshipping platform that provides a complete Dropshipping service.

The service of CJ dropshipping covers sourcing, shipping, order management and even filming ad videos.

CJ Dropshipping has both features of Oberlo and AliExpress, you can find products that come from various international suppliers at cheap prices on the site. By using this sourcing feature, you can easily find better suppliers different from AliExpress.

Besides, the overall shipping time of CJ Dropshipping is faster than AliExpress suppliers. This is because many suppliers on CJ Dropshipping got their own international warehouses.

Also, if your business volume is big, you can actually have your own private inventory in CJ warehouses. Then your orders can be shipped out within 1 to 2 days.

If you are not only looking for a store integration service provider but also suppliers with better prices, CJ Dropshipping will be a good choice for you. Unlike other paid-to-use platforms, most functions on CJ Dropshipping are completely free to use.

3. NicheDropshipping
Niche dropshipping is a site that combines sourcing agents and dropshipping suppliers. You can find various product collections on their site just like searching for products on AliExpress.

When you want to search for any products with better quality or price, you can directly consult the agents of NicheDropshipping to find the product you want.

If some products got higher prices than you expected, you can also negotiate with the agents. Agents of Niche dropship are also professional in getting the best quotation from the suppliers.

Besides, Niche Dropshipping got international warehouses in both China and the USA. So if your market is in the US and you wish to optimize the processing time of the products, you can also choose to bulk purchase the products to stock in their USA warehouse. Once products are stocked in the USA, shipping and processing time can be amazingly fast.

In addition, the photography service is available if you wish to see the actual quality of the products. You can also request photos or videos for advertisement usage. But keep in mind this service is paid, the cost will depend on your request content.

4. Spocket
Spocket is a high-rated dropshipping platform that allows you to connect with suppliers all over the world.

Most of the suppliers on Spocket are from the USA & the EU. This special feature makes it an excellent tool to search for products within the US and the EU.

The best thing about domestic suppliers is the shipping time. If you buy products from domestic suppliers, shipping will only need takes 2-5 days to deliver. This is why international warehouses are also recommended by other dropshipping platforms

Still, the limitation of domestic suppliers is the product variety. If your wish to expand your business, you will need to explore more international supplier platforms.

If your target market is in the US or in the EU, Spocket is a great choice for you to find the supplier you prefer to work with.

What makes Spocket unique?
Available US & EU suppliers

5. Printify
POD (Print on demand) is a special major category among all different kinds of products. When we talk about POD products, Printify must be the top to mention. It is also a dropshipping site that specialized in integrating POD suppliers.

On Printify, you can source a wide range of customizable products including hoodies, accessories, T-shirts, and so on.

Wish to see the effect picture? You can simply upload the picture to the platform then the editor will automatically generate an example picture.

Still, not all the products are customizable and some products are only customizable if you have a large order quantity. Many suppliers require MOQ (minimum order quantity) to provide customization services. And of course, it’s not free.

So if you are running a general store with various product categories, Printify may not be the best option.

If you are looking for customizable products or wish to brand your products with store logos, you check out Printify to make your own products.

What makes Printify unique?
Specialized in POD products
Wide range of customizable products collection
No extra charges except product and POD fee
