Hello all!

I have a question about dropshipping from outside the USA. I am really interested in selling on Amazon with the dropshipping method. However, I created my account on Amazon and my adres is from Europe, the Netherlands. When I list an item the shipping is very long because of the fact that it shows my adres from where I live. But with dropshipping I am using a supplier from the USA, so it would take lesser time to order and deliver an item and the costs for shipping will be different right?. I feel like having a disadvantage here... How can I set it up that people are not "scared" of the long delivery time of 10 till 20 days but instead deleviring the items within 3 - 7 days..

I hope you can help me with this!

Thanks!

Hi Boyan,

I've never had an Amazon account personally, so not 100% on how the setup works. I know with eBay that your personal account address is not related to the items your are selling location. The actual item location is entered at the time of making a listing and is reflective of where the item ships from.

Are you sure Amazon doesn't have a similar structure?

Hi Boyan,

For international sellers, Amazon states that You must accurately state the 'shipping from' country in your Amazon.com seller profile for display to customers. . I don't have a seller account on Amazon but I guess the process works more or less the same as eBay's.

Check out Amazon's links below for reference:

The next time you log into your amazon seller account , click on the "settings" tab that is located all the way to the right. A drop down menu will appear. When it does click on "Shipping settings" .

Then you will get to the "Current Shipping Rates and Settings" page like below.

Look for the words "Shipping from From " , Then beside it click "Edit" and choose USA as the shipping country and use the zip code of the Dropshipping company you are working with.

Note , there is an option to Select "None" if do not wish to show a location or if you ship from multiple locations.
