If you recall my interview with Oberlo on SE3 EP07 – Is DropShipping a Viable Model for Scale?, we discussed the viability of the ecommerce model of dropshipping from China selling to your local or a global market.
As you are probably already aware from that episode, dropshipping from China is fraught with inefficiencies, particularly around fulfillment and customer experience.
My guest on today’s episode, Yaw Owusu has built a platform similar to Oberlo that primarily allows e-tailers source and dropship from US suppliers.
Shipping times are 3 days with supplier level accountability and customer support.
His platform is an app on the Shopify app store called MXED.
