Dropshipping is an extremely popular business model for new entrepreneurs. Because it does not need a high-level financial capacity. You can focus all of your efforts on customer acquisitions and you don’t need to stock or handle any items you are selling.
There are many platforms for creating online store options when you decide to open your own online store, such as Shopify, TikTok, Etsy, Wix, Squarespace, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, eBay, and so on.
As a professional dropshipping supplier and solution for dropshippers, CJdropshipping can be considered as a combination of Oberlo and AliExpress. The main workflow of CJ can be summarized into four main steps: Store Authorization > Product Searching/Sourcing > Product Listing/Connecting > Add to Cart & Pay.
Dropshippers can sync their orders to CJ and let CJ fulfill them automatically by connecting their stores and products, instead of looking for suppliers and placing orders all by dropshippers themselves.
