Hi everyone, I'm new to dropshipping and AliExpress. I've reached the stage where the next step is importing products into my store and setting prices for them.
My question is: how I should deal with the discount prices on AliExpress? All of the products I'm looking at have a discount price, and for some there is quite a substantial difference (for example, discount price is $8, regular is $16), which could have a huge impact on my margin (imagine setting my retail price for the same item at $20).
The discount price appears so frequently on AliExpress that I'm getting the impression this is part of the supplier's pricing strategy, and there will always be a discount. I'm tempted to base my prices on the discount prices, rather than the regular price. Thoughts?
