Product Types

What are product types and how do they affect you?

All of the products that are currently available on our platform, as well as any products that will be added in the future (AliExpress imports included), contain a "Product Type". Each product will contain at least one product type, and some products could have multiple product types. With the help of our experienced fulfillment team, these product types help us identify where a product is able to be shipped to, and which shipping methods a product is eligible for.

For example, a product with Bluetooth capabilities may not be eligible for a certain country or list of countries we ship to. If that product type is assigned to a product that you've imported to your store, some countries may be off limits. Different countries have different rules about what is allowed in their country through which ports, and this is something we don't have any control over. But not to worry, the system our team has in place will automatically identify which product types are eligible for which shipping methods. Because of this, you don't have to worry about figuring any of this out on your end.

The only exception to this rule is that there are certain products that we can only ship to the US. For any international orders for these products, we will have to use a slower shipping method (35-45 days), so please plan your marketing campaigns accordingly. You will be notified via the Zendrop app when importing these products to your store.
