Of course you would, and this is exactly what is offered by dropshipping.

You are probably wondering what exactly dropshipping entails. And you’d definitely like to know how to sign up to Chinavasion. Then take a Chinavasion listing put it on eBay, one of the eBay alternatives or on your own store and then process the sale so that you get the money but your customer gets the goods.

You’ve probably got some other questions too about taxes, invoices and shipping costs as well.

How Do I Sign Up To Chinavasion And Set Up My Drop Shipping Business

The first thing to do is to sign up to a dropship company, which might require different steps, depending on which type of dropshipper you use.

Items like unlocked cell phones, wholesale digital camcorders and LED lights are always popular with eBay dropshippers.


Then you will need to work out your costs. While you won’t need to worry about actually purchasing the product and storage there will be other factors to consider like shipping and marketing.

Working out a fixed shipping cost is probably one of the most important steps at this stage but more about that later.

What Do I Do When Someone Makes An Order?

When someone makes an order on your store, or when an auction ends on eBay or one of the eBay alternatives you just need to come to Chinavasion to order the item for your customer.

It is very similar to the usual process of ordering from Chinavasion except for one key difference (You will even have to verify your account if you use PayPal)

The main difference when placing a dropship order is that you need to place your customers details’ in the box for the delivery address and your details in the billing address section.

Once you’ve put your customer’s details into the right box, chosen the shipping method you are ready to go. if you had any special requirements please let us know by writing them in the comment box and we will follow this for you.

What about the shipping? How do I figure out it for my website?

Shipping costs are probably one of the most important considerations you will have to make as a dropshipper and it is probably best if you work out some system before you set up your shop or place your listings online.

Because you sell products in your online store, and we ship the products directly to your customers from our wholesale dropship warehouse in China. You can focus on selling without worrying about quality control, stock, packing, and shipping.

The shipping cost can be previewed on the check out system you can choose courier such as DHL FEDEX UPS for express deliveries. While each of the shipping methods have their advantages and disadvantages (click here to learn more about couriers and airmail) these are the best options for dropshipping if you are an eBay seller. For less urgent orders you can give to your customer the choice of Airmail.

The best way to do this is to take an average of the products that you send and the average of the locations you send it to and add it on as a cost.


Chinavasion Shipping Tip: If you change the country in the shipping address the shipping cost will change. Just don’t forget to change it back once you’re done.



What About The Tax?

Chinavasion does not add any sales taxes or hidden charges to orders. What you see when you check out your order at is what you pay us.

However, most countries will have some sort of import tax which the buyer pays when receiving goods, people from Brazil will know this all too well. This is not a payment to Chinavasion – it’s usually duties or customs charges from your own government.

Drop shipping means you “sell” goods to an end customer, and Chinavasion sends the goods directly to your customer without you handling the goods.

This means that the end customer is the consignee of the package being sent from China, and this means your customer is also considered to be the “importer” of the goods.

Thus, your customer bears full responsibility for importing the goods and paying any applicable taxes, duties, and other charges. Make sure you research the situation and inform your customers clearly in advance!

What about the invoices, will my customer will find out who my supplier is?

The products will be sent “blind”. Therefore Chinavasion ‘s name / address / contact details are not visible to your customer.

In the Chinavasion warehouse, we have particular procedures to ensure no mention of Chinavasion is made on the packaging or invoice regardless of whether the item is sent to you our dropshipped to your customer.

The prices shown on the shipping invoice will be different to what your customer paid you.

However if your drop shipping customer asks you can point out that these are values for customs declaration only.

In any case a lower price declared helps reduce ad-valorem duty or sales taxes that your customer may have to pay when receiving imported goods in certain countries.

And that, in a nutshell, is the Chinavasion dropshipping program. Take the next step and learn more about the free dropshipping service Chinavasion provides and see how easy it is to make a supplimentary income.

    Chinavision refers Amazon as a possibility to sell but I don’t see how the drop-ship system can work selling at Amazon since they collect the money first from the customer and then send it to your bank two weeks later. Can anyone help me with this?
