I found a great dropshipper by reaching out and asking if they would consider this. However, after further investigation they have concluded it can't work as they are based in Canada, and the customs fees would be too alarming to my customers (who are purchasing from a US site). Is there anyway around this, shipping companies that include this or chargeback to the seller and if so it this high in cost. I am curious if there are people who dropship from outside where their product comes from.

Hi Kirsten,

When you import a product, customs fee always apply so as to protect the country's economy, residents, jobs, environment, and so on. There is no other way (at least legally) to ship imported products to the US without having to pay these fees.

If you're concerned with customs fees, I can assist you in searching for US dropship suppliers for your products.

Just let me know.

Hi Kirsten,

In fact, the e-commerce webiste like "banggood.com",
if our dropshipper order some products from the China warehouse,
they have to pay for these fees.
However, we do have warehouses in California, USA,
which may be more convenient for our dropshippers.

I was wondering what kinds of products you do want to sell in USA.
If we draw your attention, please let me know.
