Deal Extreme Drop Shipping

  • logistics2018

DealExtreme (DX) is yet another Chinese B2C online marketplace that offers a wide range of products, mainly electronic, that are made in China. DX was founded in 2005, is headquartered in Hong Kong, and affiliated with MadeinChina.com. Although it’s a Chinese store, the majority of its customers are from the Western countries. Today, DX has warehouses in the United States, Australia and the UK. It also has over 1 million users and 400 suppliers.

DealExtreme Pros and Cons

Pros

  1. Free shipping worldwide: DX offers free worldwide shipping on all items, except purely power products such as batteries and power banks. We know free shipping drives more sales, as it effectively entices customers.
  2. Affordable products + discounts and a lot of great deals: Just by subscribing, you already get a $3 gift card every month. Moreover, the site also has a page for daily deals where you can get items at up to a 50% discount.
  3. Easy to Use: Make a purchase without even signing up.
  4. Dropshipping! The best thing about DealExtreme is its dropshipping program, which is discussed below.
  5. Best place for cheap electronics: Mobile phones and accessories, chargers, memory cards. You name it, DX has it.

Cons

  1. Shipping takes 2 to 4 weeks: Sadly, orders with free shipping typically take more than a week. As explained in DX’s FAQ, your order goes through several stages before reaching your door such as:
    Payment Confirmation: 0-3 business days
    Order Processing: 1-3 business days
    Order Preparation and Packaging: 1-2 business days
    Shipping via airmail: 9-14 days
  2. Lost parcel: After reading hundreds of TrustPilot reviews, I’ve noticed multiple similar negative feedback regarding lost parcels. Lost parcels mostly happen with orders addressed to PO boxes rather than a physical mailing address.
  3. Customer Service can be unreliable: Support is only available during Hong Kong business hours, which is 12 hours ahead of the US east coast and 8 hours ahead of the UK.
  4. Security Issues: One thing I noticed on the DX website is that it doesn’t even have an SSL certificate, which is worrisome, especially when you opt to pay with a credit card.

DealExtreme Dropshipping

DX has over 300,000+ products to choose from, it offers worldwide free shipping, bulk order discounts, no contract, and all packages are sent without the DX logo — basically, a great deal for a dropshipping business.

How to Dropship with DealExtreme

For Single Orders:

1. Sign up for an account and activate it by verifying your email account.
2. Sell DX products on your website, social media, or by other channels. Because this is dropshipping, you can increase your selling price to maximize your profit margin.
3. Assuming you’ve made your first sale, go to the DX website and select the specific product you have sold and add it your cart.
4. Submit the order and pay for the item.
5. Put your customer’s address on the shipping address.
6. DX will then prepare the item and ship it out directly to your customer.

For Bulk Orders:

1. Sign up for an account and activate it by verifying your email account.
2. Sell DX products on your website, social media, or by other channels.
3. Create a CSV file containing the list of products you’re ordering. You can get DX’s CSV format from here.
4. Go to your DX DSS (Drop Shipping Service) account.
5. Import the CSV file / order and confirm it.
6. Complete order by paying for it.
7. DX will then prepare the item and ship it out directly to your customer.

Verdict

DX has been around for quite some time in the e-commerce world. Many users from around the world trust this website for its worldwide free shipping and cheap products — specifically electronics. However, if you ask me whether I’d recommend DX for a dropshipping business, I’d honestly have to say no. Today, there are so many websites just like DX that offer the same services, but faster and more reliable — take AliExpress or Oberlo for example.

Long processing and shipping time is basically DX’s main negative point — and I believe time is vital for any business unless your customers can wait for their orders to arrive. To cut it short, DX is a legit website and you can safely purchase from them, but if your purpose is to dropship, DX won’t be the best service to use.

If you’re looking for a free shipping, DX would be a good option. However, as to the safety of your purchases and parcels when you dropship, there are other better service providers aside from DX. You might want to check other service providers.
