Hi guys,
Any training material you guys recommend for newbie starting out drop shipping. I had some old training video back in 2016 about drop shipping in Ebay, not sure how the game had changed now. Mainly I want to start of with maybe some $10-20 udemy courses. Is the Jim's PAC still a good and relevant now-a-day? $299 seems is the lowest i found for it.

    The are a lot of free courses on dropshipping. The problem is, most of them are about the same AliExpress/Shopify/Facebook method that has become so saturated, it is very hard to compete unless you really know what you are doing or stumble on the right product. I'm not saying that method cannot work, I'm just saying that it is not as easy as it used to be.

    Try to find courses that don't depend on AliExpress or Shopify, which will give you far more options for what you can sell (and less competition).

  • The game has changed in the sense that it has become much more competitive. The barriers to entry are very low so its easy for anyone to jump on the platform and drop ship products. What kind of dropshipping do you want to do? In my opinion, the easiest way to get started is by doing retail arbitrage. Basically, using large retailers like Amazon or Wal-Mart to source the product you will drop ship. You don't have to pay for a course right away. you can find plenty of helpful videos on youtube for free. I would first try to get as many of your questions answered for free before investing in a course. Do not pay 299 dollars for a course believe me you can find most of the answers you are looking for free.

    if you need more help, let me know.

      Should not take anyone 2 days to do these steps or they are wasting time.

    Shopify is the best one in my opinion. Try to use it.
