4 Reasons to avoid repackaging items yourself


Tempted to try your hand at customising your own packaging? Here are 4 common stumbling blocks that you might want to consider.

1. Minimum Order Quantities (MOQs)
MOQs often make purchasing custom packaging cost-prohibitive for dropshippers. The significant upfront cost of new packaging alongside various equipment requirements can be a risk for small businesses.


2. Its a hands on task
Dropshipping and custom packaging can seem like mutually exclusive concepts. As a dropshipper you enjoy the advantages of operating your business remotely. In order to create custom packaging, you need to be on site to handle their packing process.
 
3. Significant added expense
There are multiple aspects of creating custom packaging that will incur additional costs:

  • Upfront costs and MOQs on your packaging
  • Extra equipment - printers, tape, protective packing, boxes etc…
  • Additional shipping costs
  • Insurance requirements

4. Space
Purchasing custom packaging in bulk leads to further storage issues. Not only do you have to store your own products, but the materials and equipment required for your custom packaging too. You will also need a designated area for the repackaging process. Taking on the task of re-packaging your products will require extra organisation, time, space and maintenance.
