How to Easily Start a Dropshipping Store

Setting up a dropshipping store is a great option for many product domain names. It is also much easier to do than you may think. When you are first starting an online store, the last thing you want to worry about is carrying inventory and shipping products. Trust me, my room in high school looked more like a warehouse than a bedroom. You should be able to focus on building traffic, while letting others handle the risk of carrying inventory and details of shipping products.

There are many dropshipping suppliers online, but I have found that for small stores there is an easier solution. For some of my stores, I have contacted individual eBay and Amazon sellers and set up agreements with them. Most of the time they are fine just shipping their products normally without invoices and may even be able to include an invoice with your logo.

To Set Up My Stores I Use

  • WordPress
  • Woo commerce
  • a Woocommerce compatible theme
  • Paypal

From Experience I’ve Learned 

  • Use high quality content and images
  • Order the items to test and review them yourself
  • Send free samples to related blogs to build links
  • Try to build social media outlets, it builds trust
  • Respond to questions quickly
  • Add a phone number

Let me know if you have any questions about building a dropshipping store on your domains.

      I do when I can, or they go to voicemail and I’ll email or call them back later in the day.

    Thanks brian, i have been toying around with the idea of developing some of my domains for drop shipping.
    I think i may actually take the plunge and see how it turns out, must be better than sitting on the domains and waiting for sales đŸ™‚
