Hi all,

As I am following Sarah's course and trying to learn side by side... I have faced my first obstacle (already!!) on day 2.

Sarah says we should look for products that can be shipped via ePacket (make sure it's under 2kg she says). However, while trying to browse for products to sell, I quickly found out that this ePacket option is no longer available.

SaleHoo community, help me out. Is this something new? What do I do now?

(I am a very very early stages beginner, who just started going through the course.)

Many thanks in advance,

Hi linanakhla7,

Welcome to SaleHoo! To clarify ePacket is still being supported by Aliexpress as mentioned in their FAQ here: Link hidden: Login to view

With the ever-changing times, especially with the advent of Covid19 pandemic, prices and shipping times for shipping on Aliexpress have increased and that includes ePacket as well. In that light, lesser suppliers have adapted to opt out of ePacket and have switched to other Aliexpress standard shipping like Yunexpress, and Cainiao. In addition, please do note that the products listed in SaleHoo Dropship are vetted by us making the results of suppliers (who use ePacket) be filtered as well.

Thanks and please don't hesitate to drop us a message should you need anything else! :)
