Learning about Dropshipping

9 replies
Hi there!

I am new to this forum, so this is my first question.

I have been wanting to start an online store using dropshipping for some time now. However, I feel like I need to learn more about the subject before getting started.

So far, I have followed the free Dropshipping course in the Life Course app, which I definitely learned a lot from, including how to actually set up an online dropshipping store. What do you guys think of the quality of this course? Can you recommend other free resources, such as videos or articles, that can help me get started?

Thank you very much, I am looking forward to hearing from you!

    Hi there, I did dropshipping for about 15 years and also recently getting back into it. The one thing I can tell you from my experience would be to know your vendors and know them well. If you are dropshipping from wholesalers in your own country, even better. I got stung quite a few times particularly during holiday season when I learned that a few of the dropshipper/wholesale distributors I was using would also run e-commerce websites under pseudonyms.

    Yes, they had different companies with different names that were really all the same company and what they would do when inventory became low, they would prioritize their own e-tail customers over the dropshipping of wholesale customers like me. If you are online you can imagine what that would do to make a lot of unhappy customers and eventually bad ratings.

    Please be careful in the area of dropshipping and cover your a**. I recommend people (and I am doing the same these days) do NOT charge those cards until you have a tracking number. Just my two cents, take it for what it's worth.

    P.S. I have never heard of that course so I couldn't tell you either way.

    I have a video on my YouTube channel, DripRevenue, that talks about how AliExpress dropshipping is dangerous and dying out.

    You can try using YouTube videos for tutorials. You can try if Alison has courses on this one, too. But more importantly, check out the threads here on Warrior Forum that talk about dropshipping. -Micah

    I believe you have to learn paid advertising. Please don't listen these people on the internet who say $5 ads would make you a fortune. Paid advertising is a bit complicated and make sure you understand the waters before diving into it.

    Udemy has great courses on FB advertising
