So it’s clear that it’s extremely easy to start a dropshipping business in Pakistan. It doesn’t differ from starting a dropshipping business in the US.

Now it’s time to consider the very important aspects referred to the place of your residence.

  • Payment gateways

In order to let your customers make direct payments, you need a payment gateway.

In Pakistan, the most affordable option is 2Checkout. It works great in Pakistan so you can easily use it when starting and running your dropshipping business.

There is one more option for you – it’s EasyPay. It’s also used by large Pakistanian ecommerce companies. However, please note that it is NOT compatible with AliDropship Original Plugin. It can work only with AliDropship Woo Plugin.

  • Mobile shopping

If you are going to run a dropshipping business in Pakistan, it’s significantly important to make your online store mobile-friendly.

Luckily, if you start your business with AliDropship, there is no reason to worry. All the stores that are made by our experts are optimized for mobile shopping. So it’s going to be extremely convenient for your customers to make purchases in your online store!

  • Legal side

One of the most popular questions that Pakistanian newcomers ask is referred to business registration.

In general, a dropshipping business doesn’t always require registration. However, you need to check the domestic legislation of the country you live in.

In some cases, it’s even beneficial for you to register your business. Since a limited number of payment gateways is available for you as a Pakistani, it’s popular to register a dropshipping business in the US. Why can it be beneficial? Actually, if having an LLC in the US, you can easily get access to such payment gateways as PayPal and Stripe.

Final thoughts on dropshipping in Pakistan

If you live in Pakistan and search for a way to start a profitable business with 100% ownership, a dropshipping business model is exactly what you need!

Hello, thank you for the interest!
As a rule, one of the most efficient ways to reduce shipping time is ePacket. So all you need is to ask your suppliers whether they send parcels by means of ePacket.
However, at the moment, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, ePacket is not always able to ensure fast delivery. In some cases, if using ordinary ways of shipping, shipping time can be shorter.
So when COVID-19 retreat, ePacket is supposed to meet your requirements again.

Hello, thank you for the interest!
If you want to start your own dropshipping business, please feel free to check all the options, we are happy to offer, and ask a free consultation –
As for suppliers, if you need fast delivery, we usually recommend that you deal with the suppliers who send packages by ePacket. As a rule, this shipping option lets you forget about delays in delivery. If you want to know which suppliers deal with ePacket, you can use AliDropship Plugin –
or AliDropship Woo Plugin –
However, nowadays, in some cases, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the ordinary shipping option can provide you with faster delivery.

Good pakistan best model is cash on delivery.with ur system or in dropshipping is it Pakistan no one pay to new store with long deliveries bcz to many frauds going on.thx

Artyom K. 4 years ago

Hello, thank you for the interest!
First of all, the dropshipping business model implies no risks for your as an entrepreneur. So you DON’T NEED to pay your own money for the goods your customers want to buy from you. When you’re speeking about cash on delivery, this model makes you assume all the risks. In this case, you are going to become an ordinary offline business owner ang get all its disadvantages.
Dropshipping, in turn, implies that it’s your customer who is to take risks. For example, if you use cash on delivery, almost at any moment, your customer can easily give up the purchase in your store. As a result, you pay your own money for the product you don’t need. And if you use the dropshipping business model, you should not worry about that.
Beyond this, we have lots of clients from Pakistan, and they sucessfully run their dropshipping businesses.
Moreover, if you live in Pakistan, you don’t need to target Pakistan only. The dropshipping business model doesn’t restrict you from targeting the whole world! So you can easily expand your business and increase your income significantly!
Well, if you’re interested in starting your own dropshipping business, feel free to check all the options AliDropship is happy to offer you –
