How will the products be shipped to my customers?

Set up your shipping rates

When you use Importify to sell products, the product is delivered from a supplier directly to your customer. Since the Importify app does not automatically import the supplier's shipping methods to your product page, you need to set up your shipping rates.

Are we allowed to sell branded products?

Absolutely not, we do not recommend selling brand products in your store unless you have a license and permission to sell this brand. We give you the ability to import products to your online store. But, It is your responsibility to ensure you're not violating any copyright and trademark laws.

What should I consider when sourcing products from various websites through your platform?

Our platform allows users to import products from multiple websites, but it is crucial to be aware that not all of these sites are wholesale drop shippers. Some sources offer dropshipping programs or services, while others do not. Additionally, website policies may change frequently, so it's important to regularly review the policies of each platform you plan to source products from. By staying informed and adhering to their terms of service, you can help ensure compliance and minimize potential legal risks. Please note that using our platform does not exempt you from your responsibility to comply with the policies of the websites you source products from, and we cannot be held liable for any violations or disputes that may arise from your use of these platforms.
