Complete Dropshipping Guide

Dropshipping Complete Guide

Definition : Dropshipping  or drop shipment is a popular way to sell online in which the store does not need to have your product in stock. When a store sells a product, buy a third person and this sends it directly to the customer. With this method, the shop owner never sees the product and much less comes in contact with him. Only it serves as an intermediary.

This is an excerpt from Chapter 1 of our ebook “Complete Guide Dropshipping”.
This guide consists of 8 chapters and a glossary of related terms. Every day from today, we will put at your disposal a chapter for you to be an expert in this technique retail end.


Let ‘s
begin …



The term “dropshipping” generates a variety of reactions.
Some think it is an excellent way to get started in e – commerce. Others dismiss it immediately, having heard too many stories of scams and dropshipping products that promise the moon. With so many rumors and so much misinformation going around, it ‘s hard to know what to believe, and that’s why we wrote this guide.


This is the most detailed and comprehensive guide to dropshipping you will
find. There are no scams or commercial speeches, only the truth, written by people who have used dropshipping to create large and successful e – commerce businesses. I will not say what we think might be able to run, we’ll tell you what we know works based on real – world experiences.


This guide will teach you
everything you need to know to launch your own dropshipping business avoiding costly mistakes that can end the enterprises of this kind. We will cover all topics, from the basics of dropshipping to how to run a business of dropshipping and how to deal with some of the problems that may arise.


To manage your products you can use the
app Oberlo on Shopify.

Create an online store from scratch with this free step by step guide.

 

Dropshipping is a method of sending and delivery of retail orders which do not need to be store products sold in the store. But when the store sells a product, buy it from a third party and does send directly to the customer. As a result, the merchant never sees or handles the product.

The biggest difference between dropshipping and retail standard model is that the seller need not possess or store their own inventory.
Instead, the trader buys inventory as needed from a third party (usually a wholesaler or manufacturer) to complete orders.


This unique model has certain benefits and certain disadvantages:

REQUIRE LESS CAPITAL: The biggest advantage of dropshipping is probably that you can launch an e – commerce store without investing thousands of dollars in inventory in advance. Traditionally, retailers have had to commit large amounts of capital to purchase inventory.  

With dropshipping model, you do not have to buy a product unless you’ve already sold and received payment from the customer.
Without large investments in inventory beforehand, you can start a successful dropshipping business with very little money.

EASY START: Running a business e – commerce is much easier when you have to deal with physical products. With dropshipping, you need not worry about the following:
little overhead: You no longer have to deal with the purchase of inventory and warehouse management, fixed costs are quite low. In fact, many successful dropshipping businesses are operated from a home office with a laptop for less than $ 100 a month. As they grow, these costs are likely to increase, but still be low compared with those of a traditional business.  
FLEXIBLE LOCATION: A dropshipping business can be operated from almost anywhere there is an Internet connection. As long as you can communicate with suppliers and customers, you can handle and manage your business.
BROAD PRODUCT SELECTION: As you do not need to buy in advance the items to sell, you can offer a wide range of products to your potential customers. If providers have it available, you can include it in your list of sales on your site at no additional cost.
Easily scalable: With a traditional business, if you get three times more orders than normal usually have to make triple the work. By having dropshipping providers, most of the processing work for additional orders will be made by suppliers, allowing expandirte with lower costs and less work. The sales growth will always involve additional work, especially with regard to customer service, but businesses using dropshipping are easily scalable in relation to traditional e – commerce business.  

All these benefits make dropshipping is a very attractive model for both beginners and traders established.
Unfortunately, all that glitters is not gold dropshipping. All this convenience and flexibility have a price.

LOW MARGINS:Low margins are the major drawback of operating in a highly competitive niche dropshipping. Because it is so easy to get started and fixed costs are minimal, many traders set up shop and sell their items at rock bottom prices in a bid to increase their income. They have so little invested in opening your business that can withstand operate by tiny margins.  

It is true that these traders usually have websites of poor quality and very unsatisfying attention to customer (if they do).
But that will not prevent customers compare their prices with yours. This increase in cutthroat competition will quickly destroy the profit margin in a niche. Fortunately, there ‘s plenty you can do to mitigate the problem by selecting a niche that is right for dropshipping. We will discuss this in more detail in Chapter 4.

ISSUES INVENTORY: If have in stock all the products we sell, is relatively easy to control what items are available and what are over. But when you are taking products from multiple stores, which in turn also complete orders for other traders, inventory changes daily. Although there are ways to better synchronize inventory of your store with your suppliers, these solutions do not always work perfectly, and providers do not always have the necessary technology.  
Complexities SHIPMENTS: If you work with multiple vendors, as most of dropshippers, products on your site come from various dropshippers. This complicates your shipping costs.

Say your customer places an order three items, all are available but from different vendors.
You ‘ll have to pay three separate costs for each item send customer shipment, but it is not advisable to pass this charge to the customer, because they believe they’re charging outrageous for shipping. And even if you wanted to pass this cost on to the customer, automatically calculate it can be difficult.

ERRORS PROVIDER: Have you ever been blamed for something you did not do but you should take responsibility for the error anyway?

Even the best make mistakes dropshipping providers to complete orders;
mistakes for which you’ll need to take responsibility and apologize. And the mediocre and bad providers will cause countless headaches losing items, ruin shipments and use poor quality packages, which can damage a company’s reputation.    


As we warned you initially, dropshipping service is not perfect and stress free way to build a successful business.
The model has some indisputable advantages but comes with certain complexities and problems that need to know including handle.  


We examine these problems and how best to solve them
in future chapters. The good news is that with planning and detailed consideration, most of these problems can be solved and should not prevent your dropshipping business grow and be profitable.

Hello everyone!!!
We are wholesalers of clothing for girls, The Princess Closet are a Mexican brand, we design, produce and we enter Dropshipping, what advantages we can offer them immediate shipment 1. 2. Excellent profit margins, I invite you to our website https: //www.facebook.com/Shoptheprincesscloset if you like contact us and we talked we can do for you. vanessa@theprincessclosetshop.com


I’ll tell you
something that happened to me four months ago.


Like many of you, I wanted to
start my own shop and I heard about dropshipping, oblivious to the world and unfortunately fell into the hands of a company called dropshippingimportpresta.com, now called importadordropshippingpresta.com


This company claimed to
be Partner or partner and sells Prestashop dropshipping related modules, in our case we also sold modules developed by Prestashop, seeing on its website that it was a company associated with Ptrestashop, I bought the modules without hesitation.


The stick came later, as our experience was disastrous, not only to find that it was not really Partner of Prestashop, also to check that the services they offered us were nonexistent, the modules without warranties and service a real nightmare.


We were sold a wine shop, and a handful of modules for the activity.
Recommended themselves their own shop called drop shipping evinum.es from where we were swindled 3800 euros, allegedly themselves, I say allegedly because I have to say that a judge since we have denounced. Among the false orders, shop and modules we have allegedly defrauded more than 4,600 euros.


There are plenty of forums where they
talk about the company and how it operates, Here I leave one of the links:


Here you last forum: My experience is very similar


https://www.prestashop.com/forums/topic/598859- dropshippingimportprestacom-con /


https://www.prestashop.com/forums/topic/632102-cuidado-con-algunas-empresas-de-dropshipping-fuera-de-la-tienda-de-prestashop/


say that none of the the forum that I put the link say they
have recovered their money, even though as you will see the owner intervened on several occasions to redeem his guilt and say that refund all amounts.


I know there are more than 5 complaints, so
far we can only speak of “alleged fraud”, but I am convinced that very soon we will remove the alleged.


The reason for this post is none other than to alert the community and you see not surprised by this company.


Always buy on sites that have been verified and tested.


I also put screenshots of dropshippingimportpresta company which claimed to
be partners Prestashop. Indeed the latter company closed the overnight and now operate from the other importadordropshippingpresta.com


Also I leave an email, if you want to feel identified and a group of collective complaint: estafaevinumdropshipping@gmail.com


hello a Super doubt, I’m from mexico, if I want to
do this I have to get him inside my tax movements ?, ie pay taxes, give bills, etc?


that relationship has the dropshipping with Shopify?
I can put my online shop without the need to make it through the PAG Shopify?
