1688 Advantages and Disadvantages

As we all know that 1688 is a first-rate shopping choice for dropshippers. But as a saying that "a coin has two sides.", it also has advantages and drawbacks. The following are the details.


  • The price of goods on the Internet is very transparent. Dropshippers can choose the price and quality of the better channel, directly to the purchase of goods online. Margins will be more.

  • Avoid the wholesale model-buy more in order to lower the retail price.

  • More convenient process with ZQ extension.

  • Utilize the picture of the manufacturer to introduce product on your store. Drop shippers can directly start selling goods rather than the early pose of the product, thinking hard about how to introduce the advantages of goods and attract the attention of buyers.


  • Quality is difficult to control. Now basically dropshippers have to buy a sample. The quality is determined before continuing, because now buyers have higher and higher requirements for quality.

  • The supply of goods is unstable, because it is possible that the purchasing manufacturer you choose is an intermediary, frequent agreement. Changes will lead to stock out, and the early publicity will be wasted.
