    Awesome article! as usual.

    There’s a question I’ve been thinking about, and kind of hesitated to ask the supplier or if it’s even necessary to ask in my first store and product. And that’s “Do you offer custom packaging /private labeling/ Branding”. Is there a difference between these three? And do I need to ask those kind of questions at first? Now I’m sure either one (or maybe all three) has to do with putting my logo and stuff, and while this is super handy, I’m wondering if a lot of suppliers would accept that right away. Also I heard that there’s an extra fee for that, personally I don’t have any issue investing in my business and enhance it as much as I can, but I’m just starting out (been studying dropshipping for months though) and I don’t want to mess up my calculations (profit margins, shipping fees & expenses, etc).

    Thanks in advance!

    Fantastic information. This will definitely help me with my first message to the supplier.

    Regarding the “custom fees” point, I actually researched it a bit, and pretty much every website I stumbled upon, they say it’s the buyer’s responsibility. And it makes sense to be completely honest.

    I’m.. really confused. I don’t know if this part is necessary to discuss (or if it’ll bother suppliers when they know they’ll have to pay every additional fee) and waste many opportunities.

      Hi,

      Thank you for another great comment! Good point; it’s part of the business that you’re going to run, so yes, these suppliers (if they are legit) are most likely used to these kinds of questions.

      However, for custom fees and taxes and all these legal things, I do suggest you contact someone first in your country (like an accountant) to guide you through it (just to be sure that you’re doing it right from the start) – you can also take a look at this beginner’s guide to dropshipping taxes.

      Let me know if you have any more questions, and good luck with everything!
