Has anyone bought this?

It is has a high price tag on it for $2500, but claims to be a one stop shop for all your needs in drop shipping from aliexpress, ecom using shopify and broad audience facebook ads. It also claims to have software which can find the right products to sell.

Interested to find out if other people have got this and if it really can give you everything you need to make a successful ecom business.

cheers,

    That's a very high price to pay for a system that teaches you how to buy from one of the riskiest sites around and to enter into a risky business with low margins and potential problems with returns.

    Returns can be a big and costly headache. The traders on Aliexpress (a retail site) will require you to return the goods and depending on what country you are in the return postage cost will often exceed the value of the goods. You will also have the cost of return postage from your customer to you.

    Instead, yu need to factor in the cost of giving a free replacement to your customers who receive faulty goods.

    If you have $2,500 to invest in an eCommerce business, that is more than enough to buy small quantities of inventory direct from genuine manufacturers in China or other countries and enjoy margins 10 to 20 times what you can get by dropshipping.

    Safe sourcing and easy importing is a lot easier than many people think. Because there are so many myths and there is so much misinformation published on forums and blogs and in importing courses, I started my AMA.

      Thanks Walter,

      I fear I may be looking for the magic bullet for someone to tell me what to do!

      I've been at this for while and have a little project going, but running into problems. I need to create a thread and ask for advice given my story so far I think. As you can see from my post count I am brand new to the Warrior Forums. Is this considered a reputable site?

      thanks,
      George,

        Many people look at what appear to be low prices on Aliexpress, unaware that prices direct from the real manufacture will be much lower.

    Hi George,

    Yes Warrior Forum is a very reputable site, but not all the advice you get is reliable. Treat the advice with caution and do independent research as much as you can.

    Its funny how people want to cut costs everywhere, from product sourcing over marketing to even the monthly Shopify costs of only $29 - but then think of buying a $2,500 course. One of my student told me that he would love to get a personal coaching but his budget was very limited - next time I spoke to him I heard that he bought a ridiculous marketing course for almost $1,000 - teaching him basic YouTube info.

    The point is: invest that money in trial and error and teach it yourself. I won't deny that there are some good courses, but the vast majority is a quick buck generator for the creator. A tool for profitable products? Seriously? I guess it goes through Aliexpress "hot" section, puts on non-realistic profit margins and gives you a list of potential products.

      I have found the same thing. My 133 page book costs very little, but so many people won't spend anything and prefer to go in blind.

      One person who did buy my book wrote a few days later: "You have saved me $3,000."

      I used to sign off my posts with this quote: "If you think education is expensive, consider the cost of ignorance."

    Another interesting thing is that numerous people are facing import duty problems now. I've heard from dozens of people now having their product shipments delayed (on top of the long times you have on Aliexpress anyway). Be careful if you solely rely on them as a business model in a longterm way. Everytime you want to cut the needed efforts by buying from pre-listed suppliers on a platform without negotiating previously, you will face the risks of unexpected issues.

      A valuable and sound warning, but one that will probably be ignored by most of the extreme optimists who think that dropshipping from Aliexpress is the best thing since sliced bread.
