Shipping carrier options for Oberlo orders

When you run a dropshipping business, it's possible that the suppliers you choose to dropship from are located in another country. This can lead to higher shipping costs, especially if you choose faster shipping methods. However, there are some international shipping methods that are free, but slower.

If you choose slower shipping options, then you should set the correct delivery expectations with your customers and provide tracking on their orders wherever possible.

Review the shipping methods to see which ones might be best to use for your business and the types of products that you sell.
