    Hi! I'd like to create a dropshipping store with aliexpress and shopify.
    My target countries are UK and Australia.
    I had every thing planned in my head but i totally forgot about customs duty.

    So the question is:
    How these big aliexpress based shops like - (newchic, rosegal, rosewholesale etc..), deal with customs duty? Because i've noticed that the prices of their products are only a bit bigger than in aliexpress and that amount of profit would not cover the customs duty.
    Or they don't deal with it and customer still has to pay that customs duty after receiving the item?

    Is there a solution or i should just choose low cost products to avoid it?
    What would you suggest me as a starter?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Duty and VAT/GST will be payable by you or your customer (if being send directly) on import into the country of destination. Depending on the shipment size this will be payable to the courier or freight forwarder. Don't forget that it is payable on the cost of shipping as well as the goods.
