Dropshipping is a word you don’t come across often so let me explain what it is in this article and further explain what the current model of FaceBook and Shopify Dropshipping actually entails.
Dropshipping is made up of two main parties.
The seller: Usually owns a store and displays products that can be bought just like any other store. The customer or visitor cannot tell the store is a dropshipper as the front is the same.
The supplier/manufacturer: Fulfils the order. When the seller gets an order, he/she will contact the supplier, pay for the cost of the goods and give the customers address. The supplier will go ahead and ship the product to the customers address, completing the full process of the order.
Setting things up can be a bit of a hassle. There’s so many variables and you definitely want to be getting things right at the start.
I’m going to answer these questions based on what your goals are because they differ depending on what you want to do with your store.
I had made dropshipping tutorial videos before but they’ve been exclusive for my ecomuniverse forum members.
Since the forum went through a complete redesign I lost all my previous video article pages and instead of just re-uploading the old ones I thought I’d make a brand new fresh set incorporating all the changes FB and other platforms have made. Watch this page for the rest of the videos.
I’ve heard of Amazon FBA for years now and although I had a bit of an idea of what it is, I didn’t really think much of it. Mostly because I was doing just fine with FaceBook and Teespring/Drop Shipping.
