In 2018, more than 30% of online shops dropshipping as a business model. This number will almost double if the growth rate remains constant over the next two year.

Dropshipping was responsible for selling nearly $85 billion in merchandise over the past year, according to the study.

DHGate dropshipping is a great option. Dropshipping is a popular option, and most people focus on AliExpress. There are many other options.

What is DHGate?

DHGate is a Chinese e-commerce platform that offers affordable prices on a variety of products.

It is similar to AliExpress, and offers products from a wide range of vendors. There are nearly 16,000,000 products on the platform.

Dropshipping with DHGate is a good idea.

DHGate is a dropshipping platform that offers two benefits:

  • Flexibility
  • Choice

AliExpress is a great platform for dropshippers because of its wide range of products. AliExpress may not have the product you are looking for. These products may also be available at a premium rate.

You should consider AliExpress alternatives such as DHGate to get the goods you want at a reasonable price.

Make a WooCommerce website

You need to create a WooCommerce shop by following the steps below.

Register a domain name

Domain names are the name of your website and the address from which users can access it.

There are some things to remember when thinking about a domain.

  • Simple to remember and pronounce (Easy to memorize)
  • Branded (Original enough to avoid confusion with other businesses similar)
  • Keep it as short as possible (less than 4 words).
  • Reliable (Don’t mix numbers and letters that don’t make sense).

When you are able to think of names that meet all these criteria, check quickly if they are available on Namecheap. If it is, you can purchase it immediately.

Register for a host

Next, sign up to become a host. There are many website hosting options, each one suitable for different types of businesses.

Cloud hosting services are the best choice for a DHGate dropshipping site. They offer security, reliability, and credibility. We recommend Cloudways and Siteground. I will be using Cloudways in this article.
