Ahh… not necessarily. I mean, yes, you can if you do aliexpress but real dropshipping is beyond get order and place it on ali. You need to find companies that provide a dropshipping scheme, which means, you need to sign up(for free, no real wholeseller charges you to buy their product) sign an agreement with them and get their products at a discounted(dropship) price. When you do Ali, you just take advantage of the fact that the China can offer low prices, whereas if you sign up with a dropshipping scheme, you get the same product that you can find on ebay, at a very low price, hence you can resell it.
Does ali not work? Of course it does, you just need to decide what model you want to follow, as everything in life, the secret is hard f*cking work, be beat up, stand up and continue walking with a James Bond smille
I got into Dropshipping after quitting IG + CPA and life couldn’t be any better. I got into IG+CPA specifically to make money for future ventures. I started fresh this January and the results have been real good. If you’re someone with $200-300 lying around and want to get into something new then Dropshipping is the way to go for sure.
I had a lot of problems along the way mostly due to the Chinese New Year holiday week(2 weeks long) which caused a delay in my suppliers shipping out orders late and then PayPal. Had to go through 3 PayPal accounts and lots of verification procedures. In the month of February I had to stop my Ads for 2 weeks( I was making $1-1.5K/day) as PayPal limited all my accounts and began holding all my money. I’m pretty sure I could’ve crossed the $50K mark sooner if not for that.
@Cryogenesis I would love to pick your brain a bit if that’s ok. I am really interested in starting dropshipping but have no idea how to go about doing it. I’ve gone through tons of tutorials and read endless forums but I really could use some 1on1 guidance.
Great that you jsut barreled through the problems you had and didn’t give it up
Without giving the game away with your niche e.t.c - in general is your store like a storefront with a plugin (shopify or something) linked to items from aliexpress? Or are you using a specific other dropshipper? Are you doing a lot of items of just a few select?
