Dropshipping is a more and more popular eCommerce mode widely accepted by beginners as it does not require high startup funds, not need to prepare enough inventory in advance, not need to be packaged and shipped by itself, and is also very flexible and convenient to manage. It is also very popular among cross-border e-commerce sellers. For many new sellers, dropshipping is a very worthwhile attempt to try out the initial business strategy of cross-border e-commerce. In particular, the funds are relatively tight, and the time and energy are relatively limited. Dropshipping can reduce various risks of cross-border e-commerce to a certain extent. Lots of English sellers take advantage of Aliexpress for their dropshipping resource and focus on their eCommerce website marketing to get rich profits. Among all the dropshipping platforms, Shopify is the one of the most popular.

A seller from Ireland broadcasts via YouTube and use Shopify to make sales from 0 to 1000 dollars in 7 days, The seller has nothing but a credit card. The general process is like this: Step 1, goods selection, firstly find a more fashionable interest group in pinterest, many people like the lion, he chose the lion as the entry point, then source lion-related products on AliExpress and found many products. For example, lion bracelets, lion pendants, lion rings, lion pattern T-shirts, etc., after evaluating the performance of selected products and AliExpress stores, opened a store on Shopify, and registered a domain name to bind the store. Then he puts one of the Golden Lion Bracelets as a free gift to attract traffics, buyers can get it for free by paying the shipping fee only. Then Through a series of off-site marketing, facebook advertisements, mailing lists, etc., the website and store products were successfully promoted. After one week, they eventually earned more than 4,000 US dollars. Throughout the process, the seller did not participate in the package delivery, and did not touch the product in person, because all the orders generated were also processed by the AliExpress seller through Dropshipping.

This is a customary method of operating Shopify. The local purchase is not only costly, but also the freight is not cheap. If you package and ship the goods, the labor cost is very expensive, so take AliExpress as your own warehouse and use Dropshipping to deliver the goods.
