1. Reviews: what did other Drop Shippers say about Banggood?
It is rare to see bad comments about Banggood from drop shippers that use it as a drop shipping source, that is why they are sometimes called Bangbest. They say that Banggood is a very reliable and dropshipping friendly marketplace and working with it is very easy.

2. Special Programs: Optimize your margins
Wholesale Program – Banggood offers wholesale services, where buyers can buy products of different categories in large quantities, which is great if you wish to drop ship in higher quantities. You can also save up to 30% off in this program aside from the cash coupons that you can use to buy products to sell and get free fast 7 business day shipping. I think you will not be on the losing side if you grab this, just my opinion.

4. Products you should and should not drop ship from Banggood
Like the previous article about Dropshipping from GearBest, Banggood also excels in selling good quality consumer electronics like projectors, earphones, TV boxes, etc. Other drop shippers have said that Banggood is a good source for electronic products and most of the blogs and video reviews about Banggood products are all electronics category. Stay alert while choosing the electronic products that you want to sell, make sure that there aren’t too many moving interconnected parts which might break during the delivery process and cause a higher rate of returns or unsatisfied customers.
The example below is a drone that has many moving and interconnected parts which can be easily be broken. If you still want to sell such items, make sure you check the reviews section so that you will be guided on how the seller delivers or packs the product.
Beware of how fragile delicate electronics can be. Banggood
5. Delivery Options
Banggood offers a wide range of options in delivering your order depending on your location, however, there are a lot of reviews and comments of long waiting periods for orders to be delivered, especially if the chosen warehouse is in China. This is something to take into account when setting up your business policies for Banggood. There are also warehouses in the US, UK, Australia, and France but the stocks there are limited. See the list below that shows the shipping methods and the expected time of delivery.

7. Return Policies
There is a general item return policy in Banggood. If the item that you drop shipped arrived damaged or defective to your customer, they can still return it within 3 days after it was received or 30 days after delivery if the delivery date was not defined or provided. You need to contact the Banggood customer support for the approval before you return any item to them.
In the event that the item is within the warranty period, it can still be returned and the return shipping fees will be reimbursed once the item arrives at the warehouse, this is probably due to the fact that Banggood holds multiple warehouses around the world and when a package is sent to the U.S from China, for example, the item is returned to the U.S warehouse and not the original address in China.
Timing can be a key factor here because if the warranty is already expired, you will be responsible for all the fees and charges for returning a defective item.
8. Customer Support
Based on Trustpilot, the customer support of Banggood is responsive and they do answer customer inquiries on time. They also have Pre-Sale and After-Sale support that is very professional, efficient, given by polite representatives, which means you will be talking to humans not with bots.

9. Special Deals
There is a special section where you can find fixed $4.99 selected items with good quality as well.

These are all compiled from different categories. Yes, these are cheap items but they are best sellers too. So, if you are a beginner or just started a dropshipping business you’d better check this section first.
There are multiple cashback opportunities for Banggood drop shippers, the one I’ve found to be the most interesting is by Giving Assistant, there you could find also one-time coupons such as “10% off your order”.
Other websites like TopCashBack offers cashback opportunities as well, try to optimize your cashback opportunities by comparing the offers on both and use one-time coupons both offers.
If you’re selling in UK, Quidco might be the best option for you as you can receive the money in GBP instead of USD.
By now, you already have an overview of how Banggood works for drop shipping, it has a wide range of product selection and some great programs where you can sign-up and earn some extra money from drop shipping. There is one slight drawback that I noticed, and that’s the fact that it might be challenging to try and promote your buyers fast delivery or even as good return options as Banggood offers simply because the timing is a key factor in Banggood free returns offer. But overall in dropshipping perspective, Banggood is a great source to start with for a drop shipping business.
