/dsg/ - DROPSHIP GENERAL

How do you guys search for suppliers? Aliexpress is out of the question due to shipping costs and times. Are the paid directories any good or viable at the very least?

Wait, I just checked out the guide, so this is basically just making people order from chinkshit sites, through your own site with added mark-up?

Yea man, and the sites in the guide make it SO easy

while this look like a nice way to earn some extra cash, doesn't this get overflown by every guy on biz and his mom? I mean this looks like shilling shopify.
Also don't you have to deal with customer feedback, complaints, returns or does this get forwarded to the original seller?

Lunatick
Lunatick

Aight let me try to explain
1) yeah but a lot of people dont do it right
2) use woocommerce and WordPress for all I care, its free
3)complaints = "too bad"
Returns = p.o box they pay,shipping

, doesn't this get overflown by every guy on biz and his mom?
I think like affiliate marketing the idea is if you do your marketing even slightly better you can make money.

of course there's more risk incurred because you're dealing with consumers.

Also don't you have to deal with customer feedback, complaints, returns or does this get forwarded to the original seller?
You have to put in SOME effort to running a business, and even on a micro scale, it is a business. But I'm right with you there, I'm not too keen on the idea of just ordering chinkshit and selling it through... you never know if it will come through or if they'll replace your order with a shitter one.

The guide really sets it out well, thanks to whoever made it.

Ideas I have :
Tools- specifically for electrical work as its what Im familiar with
Pets- Beds, collars, leads, toys
Clothing- mainly for teenage girls
Thoughts?

What are you guys selling?

hairygrape

Forget about the clothes, that's a real tough market to crack. I know another user who was doing kids clothes which was a bit easier, but teenage girls are the hardest market.

Think more like Video Game nerds, or even better faux-nerds who wear ragecomic t-shirts with the troll face

Fuzzy_Logic
Fuzzy_Logic

no problemo

also as said,
avoid clothes. Pets could work well.
I wouldn't do tools as most would prefer a brand that they know is high quality.

I'm working on a tourism site for my city since I'm in the industry and can make commission off shilling tours, hotels, etc. I already have connections with.

I want to include some shit to buy on my site as well, budget travellers items and items that would be great to have while you're here. Already have some dropshipping experience.

I have a couple rain protection ideas since it pours here, but I was wondering if anyone had ideas of items that I can tie into tourism that someone could be easily convinced to buy before they travel?

I was comparing prices from the stuff i buy from aliexpress and with the shipping and paying the fee for an agent, it would cost me more of less the same I would be saving only like $3-$4 usd

Even after making my websites look very good and professional, spending time to make good ads, and running social media accounts, I just wasted money and made zero sales across 3 stores.

I'm not sure if I can keep up with this... First buyer still hasn't received it yet either.

TurtleCat

You're getting those items from AliExpress, right? That's a bit risky for Etsy as people there expect vintage/handmade items and know how to spot fake from real, and a $1 item from a genuine expensive one.

I'm still jelly though

tfw you become semi-successful at using a marketing niche within a few days on instagram
tfw you get your tagging privileges removed

*SIGH*

Can someone tell me how tagging works with the @<insert username>? I thought you were supposed to give credit for other people's images. I also read the rules, and I can't find any that I broke. I only tag 3 people a day atm.

It has to do with things that weebs are obsessed about, although my target isn't anime. It's just things in general.

I plan on getting a lot of followers, and eventually will post links to products they can buy. I've been able to get some followers that perfectly fit into what I'm targeting.

For some reason instagram doesn't allow me to tag anyone.

So I don't give a shit about building a brand and all that crap, how does using the default .shopify sub domain affect your conversion? Most of my traffic will be through ads btw

Isn't it more economical to build up a brand though? Social media is basically free marketing, might as well take advantage of it.

No building a brand is a dumb idea it's better to try multiple products fast until you find a good one.

I'm basically gonna be doing a shotgun method to see what works, but a domain for everything would be expensive, I just want to know if having a shopify sub domain would turn people off

live in commie europe
decide to read guide on dropshipping in my country
turns out you need a company or an entrepreneur license for that
decide to read guide on how to get entrepreneur license and how to make a personal business
mfw getting a license costs $50
mfw you're legally required to pay $50 a month to an accountant to do your finances for you unless you're a licensed accountant as well
mfw you're legally required to give yourself a salary of $350 a month and pay $350 in taxes and social security a month

WHO THE FUCK INVENTED THIS SHIT, WHY DOES EVERYTHING HAVE TO BE REGULATED AND TAXED TO THE POINT WHERE YOU CAN'T EVEN OPEN A FUCKING ONLINE STORE BECAUSE YOU'D NEED TO SELL $400 WORTH OF SHIT EVERY MONTH JUST TO BREAK EVEN
