Dropshipping Costs ＆ MOQ
Shipping a phone screen cleaner usually won’t take much shipping fee. Thanks to the compact size and lightweight, shipping this product usually only take $5 or less.
However, there is still one problem with this product. Because the phone screen cleaner contains cleaning liquid, so shipping company will only ship it with international liquid shipping methods. These shipping methods usually are really slow, and sometimes customers need to wait more than one month to receive the parcel.
Such a long shipping time is not good for building a good brand, so dropshippers need to pay extra attention to the shipping time when choosing the right shipping company.
Overall, the phone screen cleaner is an ideal product for dropshipping and anyone can get a high profit from selling it. But since it contains liquid, the shipping time of this product can be longer than other regular products.
- Total Dropshipping Cost: $5.25
- Processing time: 3-5 days
- Shipping time: 18-35 days
- Shipping method: USPS
The phone screen cleaner is priced at $0.78 on CJ Dropshipping, the choice of extra plastic shells is also available. Normally, shipping a screen cleaner to the US needs $5.25 in total by using CJPacket Liquid US.
But among all the available shipping methods CJ provides, we recommend USPS for shipping this product. Because USPS can deliver the product to customers within 8-16 days, the $5.62 dropshipping shipping cost is relatively cheap as well.
- Total Dropshipping Cost: $5.49
- Processing time: 1-5 days
- Shipping time: 22 days
- Shipping method: Cainiao Standard For Special Goods
The phone screen cleaner is priced at $1.98 on Aliexpress. If you want to sell the product with the plastic shell, you only need to add an extra $0.39 for each item.
Considering the shipping price, the total dropshipping cost for a screen cleaner is $5.49. This is a fair price for a product containing liquid.
However, the shipping time is too long for a dropshipping product. The recommended shipping method is Cainiao standard for special goods. It takes about almost 2 months to deliver the product to the customer. Nowadays, not many customers will wait for a product that may almost take 2 months to get delivered.
On both platforms, the dropshipping shipping price of the screen cleaner is fair and close. But the difference can be significant for wholesalers and bulk orders. So if you want to sell this product as a winning product for your online store, then CJ Dropshipping will be a better choice as it got a better price.
Secondly, the shipping time of CJ Dropshipping is also way faster than Aliexpress when shipping this product. Generally speaking, it is understandable that suppliers need a long time to ship this product. Because for products containing liquids, shipping options are always limited and restricted. Usually, shipping companies can only provide a special shipping line with a relatively long shipping time to ship these products.
However, customers will not understand the difficulties of business. Nowadays if an order takes too much time to deliver, the customer would rather cancel the order and ask for a refund. So choosing a shipping line that takes almost 2 months for delivery is not good for dropshipping business.
On the other hand, if you want to have a faster shipping method for your customers, you can also choose the CJ USPS shipping line. This shipping method provides 8-16 days of fast shipping to deliver the product, and it doesn’t require much experience shipping fee as well.
For many dropshippers, whether a product is customizable is really important. Because branded logos or customized packaging will add more value to the product, so then dropshippers can sell it at a higher price.
After confirming with the supplier, we determined that the phone screen cleaner is a customizable product. However, customization isn’t a free option. Most dropshipping products require a MOQ (minimum order quantity) to customize.
If you want to print your own logo on the phone screen cleaner, then the MOQ will be 100. It means you need to order 100 pieces of phone screen cleaner to start customization. Besides, based on the complexity of your logo, each supplier will also charge a printing fee for it.
Thus, if you want to brand the product by adding a logo to it, you will need to prepare enough budget and marketing plan in advance.
Still, this doesn’t mean you can’t make your own brand as a dropshipper beginner. Dropshipping beginners can choose the custom packaging service of CJ Dropshipping. With customized packaging, you can sell branded products with a relatively low MOQ.
