Banggood’s warehouse locations
In dropshipping, you do not need an inventory in order to sell but you have to make sure where those products that you sell came from. Knowing this will give you the knowledge to plan out your policies especially the shipping policy and the handling time you commit to if you sell on a marketplace such as eBay or Amazon.
If you sell on a marketplave, you might also want to reduce or eliminate policy violations like the eBay Item Location Policy, it states that the policy helps buyers to have clear and accurate information about how long it will take for their item to arrive, and how much they will pay for shipping.
Banggood’s warehouses operate in Asia, Europe, Australia, and North America and serve customers worldwide. Banggood is so great that they are taking us Behind the scenes at Banggood’s Warehouses to see how they operate.
Shipping, Returns, and Accepted Payment Methods
Waiting for your buyer’s order to arrive is one of the main concerns in dropshipping. You have to make sure you define this policy very clear at the onset of selling on every item that you post and making sure that you live by that policy that you have set.
Banggood delivery times can change, so you may not generally get a similar delivery time, regardless of whether the orders dispatch from a similar warehouse. The assessed time gives the best time period of when to anticipate the delivery of the order. For more questions related to shipping from Banggood, refer to the link of the article below:
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.
The most trusted and commonly used payment method is PayPal, credit or debit card payments are also accepted, only available for specific countries which Banggood intermediaries operate in, same as with the other payment methods. PayPal payments are also covered with PayPal Buyer Protection which includes the items price and applicable shipping fees.
Banggood 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.
