I have seen many posts regarding drop shipping, and I am convinced that this is what I want to do. However, I have also seen experience/advises that affect my decision.

Now I want to take this opportunity to clarify the doubt in my mind and I hope to have the help from wholesale forum.

I live in France and I want to do drop shipping and I have come up with some questions below.

1- How do you deal with local tax and duties when you import from outside EU countries into EU countries? Please share your experience like the shipping process, customs clearance and strategy.

2- What are the problems you have faced so far since starting with drop shipping?

3- What is/are your most trusted supplier(s), and where they are located (I know this is a secret for your business and may be you do not want to share, but I need at least the path to reach them) ?

4- What is your choice between China, U.S, European countries? I would like to have an idea what are the most reliable according to delivery time, stock available, customer service etc.

The above questions are what I have in mind and really need your help and advice.

Your help is highly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
