Dropshipman seamlessly integrates with Etranslate, enabling real-time neural machine translation into English. In this way, you don't need to copy the Chinese characters and head over to Google Translate or an online dictionary repeatedly, which can save you a lot of time.
Dropshipman has a built-in trademark database. While importing products, our system will generate an alert based on the keywords in the translated title and warn you that selling the product will likely result in copyright infringement. Therefore, to protect your business, our system will disallow you from importing such a product.
As for the product design or the trademark in the images, you need to check them carefully by yourself.
As we know, most 1688 suppliers only ship within mainland China. Once you import a product from 1688, Dropshipman will take care of the fulfillment of the related orders on your behalf, helping you deliver to customers worldwide with over 30 logistics carriers.
