What is preferred when shipping to Brazil?
Drop-shipping, wholesalers, liquidators or manufacturers?
Which avenue would have the best success rate, of goods
arriving safe and sound? Thank you.
Each is completely different, so it really comes down to the amount you want to invest and the infrastructure you have setup in regards to storage and such.
Both liquidations and wholesale purchases are in bulk, the more volume you purchase, the cheaper the per unit cost of each item in the load. Using these purchasing models will get you the best possible prices, but then you have shipping fees, customs duties, and as AGS highlighted, possible taxes to consdier.
On top of that, you need storage.
In regards to Drop Shipping, you are talking about one item at a time, and you hold no stock at all. You list the product and the Drop Shipper forwards the product direct to the end buyer.
A lot less hassle and upfront expense, however then you have the issue of not having the best value for money to make margin with, so you really have to take your financial situation, along with you location and your preferred sales channel into consideration when choosing the best possible option for you.
