Keep your business going as usually

You need a solution providing you with an opportunity to dropship from AliExpress with some extra benefits Oberlo deprived you off.

Unlike Oberlo, AliDropship does its best to let you customize and optimize your business to enjoy all its benefits.

Certainly, you’ll gain in case you’ll find a solution to completely replace Oberlo and go on running your business with no effort. But remember: every dusk is followed by a new dawn.

Are you shocked by the Oberlo shutdown? Don’t take it too seriously: this is certainly a sign to make changes you’ve been waiting for. All you need to do is to choose a solution allowing you not only to save your business, but take it to the next level.

Sellvia is the solution you’ll definitely enjoy because it will revolutionize your understanding of a good business.

Check the following benefits Sellvia provides unlike Oberlo.

  • Lightning-fast shipping

Do you know that average US customers expect to receive their orders within 3-4 business days after the order is placed?

When you dropship from AliExpress, shipping to different states usually takes several weeks or even months. Actually, this is the most common reason for returns/refunds and unhappy customers.

Sellvia does its best to help you build a loyal community of happy customers around your business.

Sellvia has its own US-based fulfillment center with all the products from its catalog in stock, ready-to-be-sent. That’s why Sellvia is happy to provide the fast shipping option: your customers will quickly receive their orders on time. 

  • Prices comparable with the ones on AliExpress

What does a product cost consist of? Right, this is all about the cost of manufacturing and shipping.

The point is, all the products Sellvia offers you to resell are physically located at our US-based fulfilment center. So you don’t need to pay for shipping to the United States, but the Sellvia prices are comparable with the ones on AliExpress.

  • Stellar product pages with detailed product descriptions

The choice of products on AliExpress is huge. Yet, most of them are not provided with product descriptions. There are some even a seller don’t know anything about. This is what makes it a lot more difficult to run a business with.

Sellvia does its best to help its clients run their businesses with zero effort and enjoy every action they perform. This is why Sellvia provides stellar product pages with detailed product descriptions for each and every product in its catalog.

Time is money. You won’t need to spend your time learning more about the products you’re eager to sell in your store. Our marketing specialists have done everything for you. Beyond this, they have already tested these product pages that proved to be high-converting.

  • Ready-to-go marketing materials

The key to big sales is promotion. It takes you time and effort to launch an ad campaign for products from AliExpress. Beyond this, it requires you to be good at marketing. Otherwise, you risk spending lots of money on testing different ad creatives.

To let you save your time, money, and effort when you run ad campaigns, Sellvia provides its products with ready-to-go marketing materials that have already proven to be efficient.

A trial and error approach works great, but these errors sometimes cost too much. Sellvia created for you a solution to benefit from long-term. So why not save resources that you can allocate to other business processes giving you more in return?

  • Proper packaging and easy tracking

Long-term business growth is what you need to build a steady business. Happy customers are the key to what you really need. Unfortunately, suppliers from China don’t always care for your reputation. This is all about packaging and things like that.

Would you like to build a loyal customer base for your business to benefit from it long-term? Sellvia is glad to help you with that: our team provides not only fast shipping, but safe packaging and proper tracking.

Hello! Can you let me know if you have any set-up in the United Kingdom? So far everything I have listened to is all about the USA, not a word about anything at all related to England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland ie. the UK. Do you have a product warehouse/base here and do you post products here? What are the prices compared to what you are advertising for selling in the USA?
