We use Shopify for the simple fact that it is the best platform at our disposal. What makes Shopify the best is that you don’t need to be able to code to use it! You can get a store up and running with no previous experience or design skills. This makes it very easy to set up your first drop shipping store and start earning online.
Sounds good, right? If so, you’re in luck! In this article, we’ll take you step by step through the whole thing!
Activate Your Store and Choose a Plan
Though you will find a lot of different plans to choose from, our recommendation is the $79 one. This way, you get advanced reporting options and cheaper transaction fees. It’s a great option to get all these features at once. You can choose your plan by going to the ACCOUNT tab in Shopify.
Don’t have that much? Don’t worry! Shopify gives you a free trial of 14 days. Your plan only kicks in after the trial ends, so you can see for yourself whether the service is for you. If you’re still uncertain, you can always go with the $29 option. You won’t get the advanced features this way, however.
But why would you need to pay? If you don’t, and you start making big bucks, your account will be deactivated by Shopify. The idea is to go about starting your shop in a legitimate way. You will achieve success, and once the dollars start rushing in, you will be glad that you invested.
Understand How Drop Shipping Works
This is the important bit. If you want to be successful, you need to know how drop shipping works like the back of your hand. The first thing you should know is that drop shipping involved selling products we do not have. That’s right, we hold no products!
Instead of buying stock, we only buy the products the customers ordered through our shop and send these directly to them. We spend absolutely no money on buying products upfront this way. We buy products with the money we get from the customers who have already placed an order. This is perfect for people who have a small budget.
We use a website called Aliexpress (more on this later) to find out about products. There are tons and tons of others, sure, but Aliexpress is the best among the lot.
Importing Products with Oberlo
When adding products to our sites and placing orders on Aliexpress, we use an app called Oberlo. This makes things a whole lot easier and automates everything for easy convenience.
Want a rundown on how this Shopify App works? We have you covered. The first step is to go to Oberlo and download the app. It’s free, which is always good. The next step is to make sure you download the chrome extension! This is going to make everything a whole lot easier for you.
While searching on Aliexpress, you can add products straight to your Shopify store using the Oberlo app. Just find a product and click “Add To Import List”. This will add the product to your Shopify store.
Once you have imported a product, you will find it in your Oberlo import list. What you need to do now is go to your apps in Shopify and click “Oberlo”. Then go to your import list to customize the product and add it to your store.
Once in the Import list, you can edit the product. You can edit things like the product description, as you can see in the image above. Once you have done this, all you need to do is click “Push to Shop,” and it’s then added to your store.
Now, the next step is to know how to fill orders when you get them. Don’t worry, though. This is really easy. When you get an order, go into the Oberlo app again and click orders from the left side panel. All of your latest orders will show up, and you can simply place the orders, and it will do everything for you… any we do mean everything.
Oberlo will go to Aliexpress and do everything for you, like put in the customer details and place the order. That’s all there is to it! Oberlo is super easy to use and will make everything automatically happen when it comes to placing orders.
Getting Traffic to Your Shopify Store
Now that you have an awesome store all set up and ready to do business, it’s time to get some traffic. Most business people use Facebook adverts and Instagram shoutouts to get their traffic. What you have to do with Facebook is target people you think will be interested in your products. You will then need to start a Facebook ad campaign that will cost you a few dollars a day to run. Once you land a winning advert, you have to scale that advert up to make more profits.
With Instagram, the approach is a bit different. You need to contact influencers with lots of followers and pay them to promote your products. This is also a great way to get really targeted traffic to your product.
