Is Lazada A Scam?
It is very important to know the basic operating system on the platform that you are going to invest in . Lazada has come a long way from a normal online selling platform into the biggest online selling platform in Asia .
Beside that , recently Alibaba is investing $1 billion into Lazada to increase its share in the e-commerce player from 51 percent to 83 percent , and this will bring Alibaba’s total investments into Lazada to over $2 billion. Alibaba said it will buy stakes of certain Lazada shareholders at an implied valuation of $3.15 billion –CNBC .
I have personally buy and sell stuff on Lazada , from both normal and overseas seller .
They are actually do not have much different between both seller , the only different is the time of goods receiving . Overseas seller are selling their products at Lazada ,but their stocks are kept at their country’s warehouse , therefore you might need to wait couple of weeks in order to receive your products . In the other hand , you could receive your goods in a matter of days if your seller is a local seller .

2. Dropship Seller
Another seller in Lazada will be dropshipper .Dropshipping is a retail fulfillment method where your store doesn’t keep the products. Instead, when someone buy a product from you, he/she purchases the item from a third party and has it shipped directly to your customer,without noticing your customer. As a result, a dropshipper never sees or handles the product.
If you are looking for the lowest risk/cost of starting up a business , this is the best business model . In order to dropship using Lazada you need below tools :
