For every e-commerce store owner, fast dispatch always comes first, customers do not have the patience to wait for 5 days or more to ship out the order, otherwise, they will cancel the order. It requires the store owner and the shipping agent have a tight connection and good communication, and the agent should respond as fast as they can. When the orders come, the shipping agent should take action at once to start to fulfill the orders. If the shipping agent replies to the store owner slowly, it will definitely impact the shipping, normally the dropshipping agent sends the packages to the shipping company once a day, but if the messages are not synchronized between the store owner and the dropshipping agent, it will cause at least 1-day delay or ship the wrong item out. Fast response ensures that the dropshipping agent knows what to do and good communication guarantees the efficiency of the work. So make sure to find a fast-responding dropshipping agent and a good communication one, which will make things easier.
