In this section, the total dropshipping costs of the creative night lamp on CJdropshipping and AliExpress will be presented. Then you can check how much budget you need for dropshipping this product. And since there are multiple suppliers on AliExpress, we will look into the one that got the highest order amount as a specific example.

- Processing time: 3-5 days
- Shipping time: 7-15 days
- Shipping method: CJPacket Ordinary
On CJ Dropshipping, shipping one creative night lamp will cost you $9.94. The product is priced at $3.40, and the shipping to the US takes a $5.76 shipping fee with a $0.78 service fee.
The best available shipping method to the US is CJPacket Ordinary, which offers 7-15 days of shipping time for customers to receive the product.

On AliEpress, the total dropshipping cost of a creative night lamp is $7.28. The cost includes $4.99 for the product and $2.29 for the shipping.
The best shipping method is Aliexpress Standard Shipping. For shipping a regular US order, Aliexpress Selection Standard needs more than one month to deliver the product to the customer.
When we compare the price of creative night lamps on the above two platforms, we find the supplier from Aliexpress offers a cheaper option than CJdropshipping. But if you are looking for long-term business cooperation, CJdropshipping is also not bad considering the shipping time advantage.
Sometimes, dropshipping a product from AliExpress can be a pain in the ass for many dropshippers because the shipping time of Aliexpress standard shipping takes too much time. Nowadays not many customers can wait for a causal item that takes nearly one month to get delivered. So if you order this product from AliExpress for your customer, it is highly possible that the customer may cancel the order due to long time delivery.
Therefore, CJDropshipping is also a better option considering the shipping time. Moreover, if you want to get faster shipping time, you can also use CJ international warehouses to stock your product in advance to get a 3-7 days shipping time. So although Aliexpress got a bit advantage on the product price, CJdropshipping is still a better choice for long-term cooperation.
Sometimes your dropshipping platform may ask you to provide certifications to prove that your product is valid to sell. And since dropshippers are not manufacturers of the products, you may need to ask the suppliers for the certifications.
The supplier from CJdropshipping can provide all the essential export certifications to ensure the quality of their product. If you want to list the creative night lamps in your store, you can request images of the certifications from the supplier.
