Any registered Chinavasion member can drop-ship products directly from China to international customers.
The first time you try to do this there may be a delay while we contact you to check the order is authorised (anti fraud check).
Chinavasion doesn't offer a paid dropshipping service for re-branding packages and invoices.
Please make sure that the delivery address on checkout page is your customer’s address
Key Chinavasion Dropshipping FAQs:
1. Do you have a minimum order quantity? Can I order one piece at a time?
There is usually no MOQ on most items.
You can order 1 piece at a time of items with no MOQ.
2. Can you ship to [country]?
Yes, we ship worldwide - anywhere served by the couriers DHL, FedEx, UPS, which is pretty much everywhere.
And also ... Paypal 'dropship' orders to Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Benin, Cameroon, Indonesia, etc are liable to be instantly cancelled and refunded as likely frauds.
3. Is it OK to ship directly to my customers?
Yes. You can drop-ship simply by entering a new address in the shipping address field during the online checkout process.
Do not add the shipping address to your order comments as that may be missed during our warehouse processing. You must change the shipping address for the order.
You may, if you wish, enter your dropship customer's address in the Paypal payment process, but this is not necessary.
4. If you ship to my customers can you also provide me with invoices?
You can download and print out invoices from your Chinavasion account online.
5. If you shipped directly to my customers could you guarantee that your packages and invoice would not identify your company?
Yes. When dropshipping the package we send does not have anything with Chinavasion on it, and neither do the products apart from a plain packing label.
The invoice that MUST accompany ALL packages for customs reasons also will not be in the name of Chinavasion.
6. Would you be able to label the packages and invoice with my own company name / logo? If so would you charge an extra fee for this?
Currently this service is not available.
Dropshipping delivery / shipping points:

Depending on the shipping method you choose on checkout page
Each shipping method will give you estimated delivery time on checkout page as well
- how to get tracking details
Your tracking number is emailed to you from Chinavasion 24 hours after the goods are dispatched. The delay is because we have to wait for the goods to clear customs when going from China out through Hong Kong.
- how to deal with customs and taxes
All of the normal import paperwork is dealt with by the courier. If there are taxes to pay, the courier will pay them and then bill you later. In the case of dropshipping this could mean your customer is unexpectedly presented with an additional import tax bill when signing for the goods. We recommend you warn customers about this possibility and you may wish to offer to refund them for that.
- how to deal with delivery problems
Any problems delivering will be dealt with by Chinavasion in consulation with you, the drop-ship seller.
- how to deal with returns
If there is a fault, the product can be returned for a replacement under the standard 3 months Chinavasion warranty. In this case please open a support ticket first and we will give you instructions how to proceed. You can tell your customer to send the goods to Chinavasion, or you can get them to return them to you first.
