Firstly I will say, I am not an expert in the slightest with drop-shipping! I am a beginner explaining to other beginners about an opportunity I believe many people, including myself can make use of!
I have heard various friends speaking about drop-shipping for years now but until the Coronavirus hit and I found myself in lockdown, I never had the headspace to explore it!
At the same time a company I already worked with within other investments launched an artificial intelligence program to be used for drop-shipping! I decided it was worth a go!
Remember I said I was a beginner? I launched my store 10 days ago!
Here are the facts I have found from my experience so far:
1. It took me 1-2 hours to set the business up.
2. After hours of launching I was receiving orders online.
3. It takes literally 1-2 minutes to manage an order (I timed it!)
4. The company I chose to do this with have a community worldwide so there is literally someone on hand to answer your questions 24/7 and they are so helpful!
5. The team are very experienced in this and constantly advise on the best steps to take forward to give you the most success, carefully! They help you not to run before you can walk.
6. The training from the company I work with is SO easy - they literally tell you when to click ’submit’.
7. Personally the route I chose costs £150 to start plus £47.99 in monthly fees - seems steep but not in comparison to 99% of start up companies.
8. After 8 days, I was in profit - not many businesses can say that!
9. I have sold 19 products in 10 days.
10. I'm in-line with the others progress to be make £2000 profit by month 3/4.
So I’m sure you are asking “what is Drop-shipping?”
Essentially it is where you find products for sale and then sell them on online yourself with a profit margin added, then when a customer purchases them you directly order from the wholesaler/company for delivery to your customer who has already paid you… sounds pretty straight forward right? I’m so pleased to say that it is.
You might be reading this and wondering it sounds to good to be true.. this is the same thought that took me years to start this, which is why Im telling you now!
If you have 2 hours free to set this up and 15-30 minutes per day to manage this, and you are looking for a way to make extra cash or a way to make money online, then this is definitely an option for you!
I will update my blog again in future with more progress about this but if you have any questions or would like information on the company I personally chose to do this with, please feel free to contact me! I'm always happy to help.
