Are there any additional conditions for dropshipping platforms due to the coronavirus?

Yes, there are.

Due to the coronavirus, many shipments stemming from Asia are either delayed or unable to be sent. At Mollie, we are noticing that a good deal of consumers do not understand how the coronavirus affects the shipping times of their products. If companies aren’t informed about the consequences, this can result in a rise in complaints and cause credit card chargebacks. Hence, this not only entails financial risk but reputational damage as well.  

In order to minimise the risk for both consumers and companies, we have taken the following measure: 

  • We ask you to clearly state on your website that shipping can be delayed due to the coronavirus. This notification should appear before the consumer has ordered.
