4.How To Overcome Long Shipping Time?

Be Honest About Shipping Time

Make sure your customers know how long it may take to receive their packages. It is critical that customers get clear shipping information on your website. You need to properly manage customer expectations by providing realistic shipping times. When customers find out that they have to wait for weeks, you might worry that conversion rates will drop. Believe me, it’s better to sell a few than to spend a lot of money on non-payment.


Offer Excellent Customer Services

You get emails from customers asking how their packages are doing, and more emails when shipping is delayed. While you can’t speed up delivery, responding to customers’ concerns in a timely manner can give them peace of mind without wondering if they’ve been scammed. By doing so, customers will not have to wait a few more days to ask for a refund.

Reduce Delivery Time By Shipping From US Warehouses

The ultimate way to avoid longer shipping time is to ship from the customer’s country/region. You can find suppliers who have local warehouses, or you can purchase products to stock in your local operations center.

SupDropshipping can reduce the delivery time to the US to 2-5 days by shipping from our two US warehouses. Fast shipping will keep you ahead of the competition.


Sell Products That Evoke Desire

The truth is that people don’t buy from you because they need it. You need to sell a product that customers didn’t know they wanted, but they saw your ADs on Facebook and it made them feel like they had to own it.
