This is a little controversial mistake and a mistake that can get your Shopify Dropshipping stored completely closed.
First of all, a lot of people do not put any shipping times at all as they are afraid that it will discourage customers from purchasing.
I have already covered this in detail at my ‘How To Deal With Long Shipping Times When Dropshipping With Aliexpress’ article.
Really is, having the shipping time will not influence your conversion rates as much as you may expect.
Another huge Shopify Dropshipping mistake is that people put misleading shipping times. Just making them shorter.
This is probably even worse than not having them at all.
For example, if you put 7-14 days shipping and a customer contacts you after 14 days, there is no reason why you should not refund him or her.
If you do not have shipping times then at least you could tell them that the shipping usually can take up to 40 days or whatever it is, and ask them to be more patient.
This is not a great practice either though, as you do not want to get a lot of people emailing you that they have not received their products yet.
Even worse, if you receive a high amount of refund requests some payment gateways can ban your account and your Shopify Dropshipping business can get completely ruined.
So, the moral of the story is put the shipping times as they actually are and you will avoid a lot of issues.
