Many drop shippers use the traditional method of using DHL, UPS, FedEx, TNT or oversea container to send bulk orders to their overseas warehouse and then use local fulfillment centre to send orders to their customers.
This is an outdated method that is not only inefficient but also ineffective. A better choice will be to go with one of the Top 10 International Fulfillment Center that’s currently gaining a lot of popularity in the drop shipping arena.
RANK NO. 1 – CJDROPSHIPPING.COMConvenience – Instead of shipping a container overseas to different local fulfillment centers around the world, why not just choose CJ Dropshipping where they can send the items that you sell everywhere in the world from China? China’s logistics is probably one of the most advanced infrastructures in China. Domestic delivery in China is same-day to three days max. This cuts down on the delivery time, it simplifies the logistics process, and you only have to deal with ONE fulfillment center instead of 10 of the local ones.
Lower cost – CJ Dropshipping has a 100,000 sq. ft. (and still expanding) warehouse to house all the inventories of the products that you are dropshipping. They don’t charge a warehouse fee if you source the product through their service (FREE of charge). All you need to do is to head over to https://app.cjdropshipping.com and register to begin posting a sourcing request.
No Excess Inventory – When you ship a container of products to the local fulfillment center, most of them will charge you a warehouse fee or inventory that are stale. Since CJ Dropshipping are well rooted in the Yiwu merchandise market, they are able to pre-stock items that you are selling well to make sure your order processes daily, but they are also able to return excess inventory to factories so you don’t have to bear the cost of inventories that don’t sell. Controlling the inventory level for your dropshipping store is a complimentary service that’s free of charge when you choose to use their platform: https://app.cjdropshipping.comSimplifies the process – CJ Dropshipping also simplifies the process for you. There are many people involved in the backend in order for your product to go from a factory to your customer’s hands. There’s the factory or manufacturer, the quality inspection company, the logistics company, and the fulfillment center. CJ Dropshipping incorporates all those stages so they will be your only point of contact from sourcing your products from the manufacturer to inspecting the quality of the products that arrived, to arranging for the product to be picked up and shipped by local carriers who then helps the product to clear customers so it can get to the hands of your customers. CJ Dropshipping’s platform also lets you monitor the status of a product from sourcing to processing, to shipping all in one place. You can see the whole ecosystem by registering at https://app.cjdropshipping.comFast delivery time – Because CJ dropshipping is the only one that handles the process from start to finish, it cuts the time to communicating from one step to the next. They also have their own US Warehouse and their own delivery method which shortens the delivery time to 7-10 days instead of the usual 12-20 days by ePacket.
Integrates with Shopify Stores – Their platform integrates seamlessly with Shopify stores and can automatically pull orders from Shopify Stores for you to place orders on their platform. Once the order has been processed, tracking numbers will automatically be populated back to your Shopify store so your customers can track the status of their packages without extra work from you.
No Minimum Order – this is a big selling point to those who just started in dropshipping.
English Customer Service – One of the most frustrating aspects of arranging shipment via the traditional method is that you must be able to speak Chinese or you must have a really good understanding of “Chinglish” in order to communicate what you want to the other vendors. CJ Dropshipping provides professional English customer service support.
CJ Dropshipping easily comes as Top 1 as an international fulfillment center because they’ve positioned themselves as a one-stop shop for drop shippers and eliminated many of the complexities related to logistics arrangements.

This kind of situation can easily trigger customer concerns and paypal disputes resulting in not only a loss in profit and advertisement cost but also additional penalties for not fulfilling the order by Paypal or Shopify.
