In these challenging times, due to a number of reasons, some entrepreneurs fight for their businesses and have to think of staff reduction. Others even shut plants down and withdraw from the market.

However, if you are an ecommerce business owner, the COVID-19 outbreak provides you with a great opportunity to take the lead on the market and increase your profit margin considerably.

How can you do this? AliDropship has an answer!

Product ideas to sell: how to save your business during COVID-19 and make it prosper?

First of all, let’s talk about coronaviruses and how they can affect your ecommerce business.

Since COVID-19 is a type of coronaviruses, it sounds reasonable to remember SARS-CoV.

SARS-CoV is a severe viral respiratory disease that was identified in 2003 and spread all over the world, as COVID-19 does.

During the outbreak of SARS-CoV, several countries also had to set up the quarantine. This meant severe challenging times for their economies, large and small business, etc. It was in those years that such an ecommerce giant as Alibaba was taking its first steps.

When people from China, Vietnam, and some other countries were under quarantine, Alibaba’s staff was working from home. The company management was afraid of the SARS-CoV negative impact since lots of plants were closed. However, after a while, there was a strong growth of ecommerce. And being a small company with lots of promising ideas, Alibaba hit the lottery.

It was due to the fact that because of quarantine both entrepreneurs and their potential customers didn’t have an opportunity to leave their homes.

Consequently, a new market-place launched by Alibaba was the only way out of the situation: entrepreneurs placed their products in this market place while citizens got an opportunity to get the items they needed without leaving their homes.

Perfect, isn’t it?

That was an important contribution of Alibaba to the fight against the SARS-CoV outbreak. And this is the beginning of Alibaba’ era that is nowadays one of the world’s leading online retailers, worth US $60 billion.

So why don’t you start your ecommerce venture right now or lead your acting online store to a whole new level? This is a high time for you to help people from all over the world fight against COVID-19. Meanwhile you can easily build your financial empire!

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, nowadays many countries in the world are under quarantine. Beyond this, there are lots of other reasons why lots of people have no opportunity to leave their homes and buy the products they need for everyday life.

But how can you as an ecommerce business owner benefit from this situation? Get the right product ideas to sell!

New product ideas to sell during the COVID-19 outbreak

Let’s speak about what exactly to do in order to use Wuhan coronavirus pandemic for the benefit of your online business and build your own financial empire, but also help people from all over the world fight against COVID-19.

Can orders be fulfilled during this time of Covid19? Or how are products delivered and revieced during this locked down.

Olga L. April 3, 2020 6:34:27

Hi, thank you for your question!

Chinese manufacturers and suppliers are back to work already, and they assemble packages and ship them successfully. You can read more about it here: https://alidropship.com/dropshipping-and-coronavirus/#chinese-suppliers-answer-the-questions-about-the-situation-in-china

Mary April 2, 2020 16:32:18

From China ?

Olga L. April 3, 2020 5:22:21

Hi, thank you for your interest!

Not all AliExpress sellers ship their products from China. Many of them keep the items in warehouses across the USA and Europe, so you can only work with these particular suppliers if you want to. Here’s how you can do it: https://alidropship.com/aliexpress-ship-from-europe-or-usa/

Frankie Lachman April 2, 2020 17:45:56

I find your information very interesting and informative

Rachel April 3, 2020 5:45:28

Yes it seems like a good idea to start now. But there is also the problem with logistics at the moment that you shouldn’t hide from people. My o line store can’t offer free shipping anymore as there have been ongoing delays with e-packet, and DHL shipping has doubled in cost. I think. Would be a good time to set it all up if you can now, but keep in mind the logistics around the world at the moment.

Olga L. April 3, 2020 6:49:36

Hi, thank you for your comment!

You are right: now is the best time to launch and prepare a new store, research and create product offer, work on some technical improvements, etc. We have covered it in one of our previous articles: https://alidropship.com/dropshipping-and-coronavirus/

zul May 12, 2020 7:55:14

How to handle return

Olga L. May 13, 2020 10:22:38

Hi, thank you for your question! We answer it here: https://help.alidropship.com/en/articles/2307142-returns-and-refunds

Dawn April 3, 2020 6:08:21

Are the shipping delays a considerable problem these days?

Olga L. April 7, 2020 8:07:20

Hi, thank you for your question!
It actually depends on your buyers’ country of residence. As seen from our self-managed stores operation, currently, AliExpress sellers have no troubles arranging the orders delivery to the United States. However, it is recommended to choose AliExpress standard shipping option these days instead of ePacket to make sure the delivery is quicker and cheaper.

Shafiya hussein April 3, 2020 14:24:31

Hi, is it possible to sell the console? like the Nintendo console that I’m seeing at the picture? You don’t need any license to sell this thing? Can you get any problems with selling that product?

Olga L. April 7, 2020 8:06:10

Hi, thank you for your interest!
If you’re dropshipping a product under a globally known brand name, you may face legal issues, indeed. This is why the best idea is to either dropship accessories compatible with these branded items (for example, console skins), or to focus on similar items manufactured by lesser known local brands.

Main issue is delivery time. I have already ordered many deals with ali express and 50% of orders were not delivered and got refund after 2 months
If order is delivered then it takes around 1 month at least which is also frustrated.

In Pakistan we get to order online receive with 2-3 days

Why one would wait for so long

Plus you are selling your product of website development what about rest steps people like me with zero skills of digitalization how can promote, and generate sales. He would be waste his money and will leave the business and 80% dropshipping business is failed, any one can Google it’s not an easy as you are making mind

Olga L. April 10, 2020 7:59:24

Hi, thank you for your interest!

I notice nothing said about COOKIES!
I understand visiting a product site if the customer does not buy instantly, then they go look at some other thing, the cookie expired and you lose the sale.
Is this right?
Please explain this.

Artyom K. April 13, 2020 9:46:02

Hello, thank you for the interest!
Please pay attention to the fact that cookies don’t effect your profit from dropshipping. However, there is an opportunity to make additional money on AliExpress cashback that depends on cookies. Meanwhile, as a rule, a cookie lifetime is long enough to get a part of money you spend online back from the majority of orders.

And i love to own an Online store with Alidropship. Secondly do i really need to ship from other countries? Can’t we access the items here in Nigeria.
I would be glad if i get assisted on owning a store with you.
Thank you

Olga L. May 12, 2020 6:38:18

Hi, thank you for your kind feedback!
Not many manufacturers stock their products in Nigeria: they prefer to locate their warehouses in China or large European countries to make global shipment more convenient.
You can try selling your store products not to Nigerian customers, but to people in some other countries: dropshipping business is unlimited, so you can target buyers all over the globe.

Jafar May 11, 2020 8:19:17

Hi there,

I have to thank you. You are really working hard to help others.

I have ordered a custom store from you. And I have already made 100$ from the first month I lunch it.

It is not very high income, but people who bought from my store are from US and some other countries. This mean that my store is good enough to be trusted.

Time is only I need now to learn. And I found tons of useful topics in your resources.

Can you amend the plugin so it imports the shipping cost of products as well. So when we set the markup in the settings it takes shipping cost into account as well. Right now one has to hunt for products with free shipping only. So no matter how hot a product is. Or how easy to import with the plugin. One still has to manually check the shipping cost
