How to dig best selling product in Shopify store

86deal-admin No Comments

I believe how to dig the best selling product in Shopify store is the most frequently asked question by Shopify sellers. There are some suggestions for you as a reference if you are new to Shopify dropshipping business.

How to define best selling product in your shopify store?

So far, I have not totally understood the definition of what is the best selling product? What kind of product can be called the best selling product? But in the last few years Shopify experience, my friends shared with me their understanding of the best selling product or exploding product.

If the price of a product in the Shopify store is about 20~30 dollars, the daily order of this product is 25~30 pcs, and the product monthly sales are around 15000 usd. This product can be called the explosion product or best selling product. I think this criteria should be reasonable. It is also a quantitative standard for the explosion product. Otherwise, everyone is saying that every day, how do I suddenly have a single best selling product? How to create the best selling product in Shopify store? First of all, to clarify this concept of the best selling product.

Things that are not quantified are relatively imaginary and relatively floating. One of my friends sell mobile phone case around one hundred orders a day. Is this called an explosion product? Of course it is. In fact, there has another meaning of the best selling product: ultimate marketing on this product with a certain profit margin. Everyone has different understandings of the explosion product. The above is for reference only. Otherwise, if you look at the sales data in your shopify store there is no one product meet this criteria.

In fact, you can refer to the above data, simply to optimize. For example, if you think that the customer price is about 15 usd, and the product has 10 orders or so per day, this is called explosion product. A Shopify store must be launched first, and if you need certain profit margin, I think it is necessary to dig the best selling product in your store. In fact, the best selling product such as cheap mobile phone cases, data lines, etc., these are called traffic products, the concept is not the same as the explosion product. The traffic product is only responsible for attracting the customer, and it does not matter to make money with the traffic product. This is called traffic thinking.

In fact, everyone has different definitions of explosion products. Some people say that the explosion product does not have to make money. Some people say that the explosion must make money. The Shopify seller relies on this profit for the dropshipping business. My understanding on the best selling product is that it should be high exposure, high traffics and high orders, to have the “three high” characteristics, as for earning money, it really varies from person to person. Therefore, there is no profit problem involved here. As long as it meets the three high characteristics, it is called explosion product. You said that the sale of low-priced products don’t make money, or even lose money. In a certain angle, you are taking the explosion product for traffics, the traffic is also very valuable in the eCommerce age.

how to dig the best selling product in Shopify store

Actually from the three high characteristics of the explosion product, let’s talk about how to dig the best selling product? What are the tricks?

Start from the product perspective

In 2017, the most popular products for cross-border e-commerce are the Fingertip gyro. Here, we will list the characteristics of the explosions represented by this gadget, which can be targeted for reference. In fact, a simple review of the past years of explosion products, such as the balance car in 2016(believe that the average small seller can not afford, do not make reference), artifact selfie stick in 2015 , electronic cigarettes in 2014…. .. there is a simple summary:

Feature 1. Simple function

Fingertip gyro is a toy, I have also played some different kinds, to tell the truth, I don’t like it, but from the consumer point of view, it is so hot in overseas countries, I feel that foreign children do not have this thing they will be embarrassed to go out. It is because the function is simple, as long as it is a child who can walk who can play well, of course, adults can also play, relying on the tools of relaxation and decompression.

Feature 2. Relatively high quality

One of the characteristics that must be specific to the best selling product is that quality does not require you to be particularly good, but relatively high quality. For example, the fingertip gyro, if you play it, it will not break, especially pure copper or iron one, the broken possibility is even smaller. The selfie sticks and e-cigarettes listed above all belong to the products with relatively good quality. Of course, the biggest problem of the balance car is that the accidental accident caused Amazon to completely remove the balance car.

Feature 3. Fast stylish and light weight

This must be the most important feature. In addition to its simple function and good quality, the next step is that this product is preferably small and relatively fashionable. When I promote selfie stick online I was hesitate for 2 weeks, but it sells around 100,000 monthly after promoted. Therefore, it is possible to find a small and fast fashion product for Shopify dropshipping.

Start from market perspective

Starting from the buyer side, grab a hot search product
keyword, so that it is very convenient to understand the market demand and know which products are popular on the market.

Trick 1. B2C Platform keyword search

The data on the B2C platform is the most important, but often many sellers want to know the data in many platforms. For example, the data of the AliExpress background is enough for everyone to refer to the product selection, of course you are familiar with the Aliexpress data, it is also very good to find product data on other platforms for your Shopify dropshipping.

Trick 2. Best selling product on other platforms

Once one product exploded on one platform, the other platforms will be also hot soon. This is the trend of cross-border e-commerce. So if any product is hot sale on a platform, I suggest you hurry up to sell on your Shopify store.

The 28 law on Shopify store

In the final summary, a Shopify store actually needs some explosion produts and traffic products. This involves the product layout of the Shopify store, and the best selling product is in line with the 28 law. That is to say, 20% of the products in a store actually contribute 80% of the sales. In any case, everyone must work hard to dig the best selling products in the Shopify store. It is the last word to put the performance up and profit.

China 1688 Pick and Pack Order Fulfillment Procedure for Shopify Dropshipping

86deal-admin 32 comments

In order to provide better user experience as well as improve order fulfillment efficiency and lower down order fulfillment cost, more and more Shopify sellers outsource the order processing works to Chinese pick and pack fulfillment company to pack and ship orders from China to clients directly. Let’s explain the procedure of the pick and pack fulfillment service and its advantages for the Shopify dropshipping business.

Pick and Pack fulfillment procedure

Shopify integration

Once Shopify seller choose 86Deal pick and pack fulfillment service, the seller need to invite us create an admin account to authorize us login Shopify dashboard to check the orders integrate Shopify with our warehousing system to update Shopify orders day by day for order fulfillment.

The integration is very simple and it doesnt need to modify anything on the dashboard, it is very safe, we just need the authorization to install an Shopify ERP app to update the daily orders to prepare order fulfillment.

Shopify orders

The shopify orders here indicate that orders paid by clients, due to Shopify has some interface issue on certain payment gateway, some clients paid orders still showing suspending status or unpaid status will be not shown in our warehouse system, thus we also need the shopify seller to check daily paid orders and update us manually those paid order but shown as suspending or unpaid in case we delayed the order fulfillment.

Sourcing

In addition to the suppliers provided by shopify seller, we also provide sourcing service to new products at high quality with affordable price. Once we started sourcing, we will help Shopify seller confirm the supplier credits, product price, stock, color and size as well as other product details, and source 3 to 4 alternative suppliers with similar price to compare, and give suggestions to help Shopify sellers make decision.

Sample/Purchasing

When the Shopify store list new product on Facebook ads, we usually inquire different suppliers and if the suppliers are located in Guangzhou or near Guangzhou, such as Foshan or Dongguan city, we usually contact the supplier and make an appointment to visit the factory then confirm the goods wholesale price with supplier and confirm stock as well as goods delivery time before order them.

If the suppliers are far away from us or we do not know the supplier well, we will suggest Shopify seller to make sample at the beginning, once the product arrived our warehouse we will take photos and videos on each part of the products to confirm with Shopify seller. After that we will order products in bulk based on the Shopify store orders.

Quality inspect

86Deal warehouse receive many packages from different suppliers in China, the warehouse people will match the tracking with each Shopify store order then check the goods quality such as product packaging, damages, flaws, stain, color, size, quantity etc. Sometimes we will need to measure the clothes size match EU or USA size or not.

In the quality inspect step we will also need to help Shopify sellers to remove labels, remove Chinese words and supplier advertising booklet, replace packaging if necessary. After that 86Deal warehouse will repack the products.

However, Quality inspect doesnt equal test service, for example, some Shopify sellers sale earphone, Bluetooth speaker as well as other 3C digit goods, once they arrived our warehouse, we can only check the packaging and its surface, thus we do not know if all of them work normally or not.

The quality inspect is very important for shopify dropshipping business, many shopify sellers chose order fulfillment service instead of Aliexpress due to it could greatly improve customer experience and lower down the after sale argument due to the quality issue and branding purpose.

Return exchange

If the products we received has any brokens, flaws, stains we cannot remove, or in wrong color size we will notice the Shopify seller and contact the supplier with photos or videos to show them the spot to negotiate the return or exchange procedure, get the product returning information and pack the goods to ship to the suppliers and upload tracking to 1688 Taobao platform. Although the goods returning procedure usually takes more than 1 week, it saves trouble after clients received them.

Warehousing

Once the warehouse staff checked the goods if they are in good quality condition, they will repack them (use branding or blank packaging) and stick labels to put them on the shelf ready to ship.

Currently 86Deal warehouse offers 180 days free warehousing service, we will show Shopify seller the product ID and stock in our warehouse, after 180 days we will notice them, if shopify seller do not need them anymore we will help them donate or destroy the abandoned products.

Order printing

After warehouse staff upload the products on the shelf and scan the product label, the related product quantity size and color will be uploaded to warehouse system as product stock, then warehouse people in charge of the order printing will check orders and stock respectively and print the orders for shipping.

Pick and Pack

Warehouse staff pick up the products on the shelf base on the printing orders, after the product label being scanned, the product stock will be deducted automatically.

The next step is consolidate packing. One of the biggest advantage to apply an order fulfillment agent is the consolidate services for orders from different suppliers, if you dropship from aliexpress you can hardly launch the cross promotion in the Shopify store as people need to receive many packages in one order, which will not only waste time and shipping but also affect the user experience.

86Deal consolidate packing service allows Shopify sellers launch cross promotion during holidays to increase store sales, the warehouse will pick up different products from different suppliers and pack them in one package(packaging and label also can be customized) to ship to the clients.

International shipping

Currently mostly dropshipping business use ePacket shipping from China to overseas countries. However, ePacket only supports 37 countries and regions shipping from China, it mainly covers Southeast Asia, Middle East, EU and North America countries.

You can check ePacket shipping rates and its restrictions. In order to facilitate dropshippers overseas, 86Deal also cooperated with native courier companies for general goods small packages shipping from China directly to USA, UK, Germany as well as other countries, we can also help Shopify sellers dropship cosmetics, built-in battery, cream products from China, please inquire if you are interested.

Tracking upload

After our warehouse printed orders, each order will be assign a China post ePacket tracking number, once the warehouse finished packing, we will click shipping and upload the tracking to Shopify store, then the orders will be marked as fulfilled. Usually the second day the package can be tracked.

The Shopify order fulfillment ended here, but did 86Deal after sale service end here? Of course no, we will need to continually track the package status if the clients haven’t receive in long time. Meanwhile, we also help Shopify sellers handle the package return works.

Package return

Since Shopify usually do not need clients fill in phone number and ePacket usually leave phone as an optional option, thus most orders do not have phone contact, during the package delivery the courier may not reach the clients on time, thus they will return the package to our warehouse.

Another situation is the clients do not satisfy the products they ordered, they want to return them and refund. In this case Shopify seller could tell them 86Deal warehouse address in English format and ask them to mail back, please be sure

not to declare the goods actual value as they may have tax in China customs, for example, a client ordered $100 product and he wants to return and refund, be sure to confirm with him the declare value should be under $30,else we may receive tax bill from China customs and we maybe forced to abandon the packages;

not to forget to ship all the items in the order. Some people ask for refund all money while they only ship part of them, so Shopify seller need to confirm what item they want to refund and negotiate with them for the best result for both of them.

After we received the package returned from clients, we will recheck the product and pack to upload to shelf for shipping.

That’s 86Deal dropshipping order fulfillment procedure for shopify sellers, in addition to the services mentioned above, we also provide some add on services to help Shopify sellers improve the order fulfillment efficiency and
focus on store marketing.

How to select and test products for Shopify dropshipping

86deal-admin No Comments

Often we will see some Shopify sellers introducing their products on Facebook with lots of comments. After listening to a lot of people, they will think that this is a “good product” for Shopify dropshipping. In such a specific space, with their own interest tags, it is easy to have such a feeling. There are indeed a lot of such scenes, and it is normal because of this situation, some Shopify sellers have fallen into the pits. how should we measure whether a product is a good or not for Shopify dropshipping? In cross-border dropshipping business, we often say 70% rely on product selection, 30% on marketing operation, and in social e-commerce, the product is also hardcore, so choosing a good product is also crucial. How to select product for Shopify dropshipping? The following are 5 tips for Shopify product selection.

How big potential market the product might have for dropshipping

Is there a big potential target market, and whether the future is growing? It is like how many healthcare products have been done in the past few years. Besides everyone’s life, healthier and more authentic green products are being demanded. There is also a great boost in the support of the country policy. In addition, for example, like the current pet products, it has gradually become an important part of everyone’s family. We have seen that IKEA is also developing pet-based household products, which can be said to be very good in the future.

What is the profit margin of the product

It is in common sense that the product must be sold to make profit, of course except the public welfare. In the current e-commerce environment, high traffic costs, high operating costs, not enough profit margins, and ultimately to the demise, and in social e-commerce, there should be more profit space for the dropshipping business.

What kind of competitors available

The best thing about e-commerce products is that the price is transparent. If you search online, you can know the sales price. There is a chance to compare. This is the original sin of price war. Of course, we can do some differentiated products for dropshipping, but This is not something that every Shopify seller can make, so in a similar product, we can analyze the advantages we have, and then differentiate by advantage. There are lots of ways to analyze the competitors you may face.

What product resources do you have

Every Shopify seller has its own product advantages, especially those who are in the industry. Although the advantages of this industry have been broken by social networks, the time difference is also cost, so what is in your circle of friends? Resources, this also directly affects whether you can find good products.

I went to a lot of factories last year. When many factory owners were chatting with me, I asked them how they developed new products and how they were introduced to the market. Many of them would say that they would give samples to big shopify clients in cooperation, and then promote based on the feedback, that is, their friends in the circle will take priority over other people to learn about new products, which is the advantage of resources.

Product patent property and policy risks

The products are very good for selling and it has very big market, like a big blue sea with big prospects, however, no sellers can sell, you can put on sale, but the biggest problem is the patent issue, this problem is obvious in cross-border e-commerce, or I sold it a lot before I was demolished, but I might messing up my entire store eventually. There are also some products that are policy supervision products, that is, there are certain application scopes, regional restrictions, etc. These products are not a good product if they are not authorized.

Does it mean you can make profits once you found some good products for shopify dropshipping? Of course no, you should do the prouct test in your Shopify store. How to test hot sale product in Shopify store via Facebook ads?

Select test product

Firstly, select 9 products to be tested from your Shopify store (if it is not enough products, at least select 4), meet the following conditions:

Different products, but must belong to the same niche, e.g. sneakers;

Although the products belong to the same niche, they must have obvious differences. For example, the same color of the same paragraph will not work, there is no essential difference;

Create campaign with convention as the goal

Create campaign target at conversion to optimize shopping events or add-on events based on your Pixels intensity (if Pixels are mature, you can ad directly).

Choose a broad audience to create 3 ad groups

One of the conditions for testing “hot sale goods” is that a large number of people are interested in the product, and of course, a certain population base must be guaranteed during the test. The more detailed and smaller the audience, the more likely it is to be biased when testing products. Because the first is not the more restrictive conditions, the more accurate the audience is, the second product has not been selected, it is difficult to conduct targeted analysis, and there is no need to spend too much time doing nothing. So the best way to do this is to use niche-related interest words to define a relatively large audience (1-50M), which not only ensures that the audience has a certain interest in the product, but also collects a large number of people’s “feedback” and finds The real “hot sale” products. Create 3 ad groups, all using the same audience. (If the budget allows, add a few more ad groups).

Why use the same ad groups?

Because the Facebook audience is the audience pockets, even if it is the same audience positioning, it may touch different traffic pools, which is completely different people. If only one ad group is used, the assigned traffic pool is limited and the results of the test will be affected.

Exclude low value traffic

If there are no special restrictions on your sales market, select the world directly in the selected region, then exclude some low-value groups, such as Africa, Asia, Central America, or only the first world countries / Nordic and English countries. Because people in low-value areas often have a high probability of clicking on the ad, but the purchase conversion is very poor, so the test can also be appropriate to delete some countries.

Set budget

Set a budget of 10-20 USD for each ad group. For such a large audience, this is already a small test budget, and will not exceed 60 usd per day.

Assign ads

Product testing definitely needs to make a single product ad. If you choose 9 products according to the recommendation, it is 9 ads. In the 3 ad groups you just created, these 9 ads are assigned in each ad group. This is also to ensure that the variables are unique and that each ad group is assigned the same product.

Find hot sale products

After advertising for a period of time, you can find the best-selling products based on ROAS and the cost of a single purchase. For example, product 3 and product 5 are in good condition. Next, you can select product 3 and product 5 separately to create a new campaign, and then use these two products to test other variables – audience, interest words, materials. and many more. Finally you will find the hot sale product in your Shopify store.

When the new Shopify store has just been launched, or when a large number of new products have just been launched in the new quarter, we have to choose several goods to test the market. In fact, even if the budget is tight, you can fully conduct effective product testing to help you quickly find the best-selling products in the Shopify store.

Everything you have to know about Shopify dropshipping

86deal-admin No Comments

Along with the popularity of shopify, many people who want to start a business quickly will choose the following set of modes to start dropshipping:

Shopify+Aliexpress+Oberlo+Facebook

Among them, Shopify used to quickly build a dropshipping store, you can buy plugins and themes to install a store instantly. Aliexpress is the platform to buy and sell goods to earn the profit margin, Oberlo is the plugin to import goods info from Aliexpress to Shopify store, Facebook used to get traffic quickly. In this process, the important thing is not the problem of building a store. As long as the product is selected, there has enough profit margin of the product, and the marketing cost is deducted, then the rest is yours.

What is Dropshipping?

There are actually three different roles in a transaction :

Supplier

Retailer

Customer

The mode is very simple. The retailer gets the goods from the suppliers and sells them to the customers through certain channels. This is our very common selling mode. Whether you are have store on eBay, Amazon, or AliExpress, you follow this pattern. Dropshipping actually follows this pattern, but this process is more easy, the retailers

Don’t need to get goods personally

No stock at the beginning

There is not a large amount of capital investment (main cost is the traffic cost)

No customer representives

Do not need to pack and ship goods personally

You may wonder what are the procedures of Shopify dropshipping?

Firstly, the retailer will put the product information provided by suppliers supporting dropshipping service on its website;

Secondly, the buyer goes to the retailer’s website to place an order, and the retailer sends the buyer’s order information, as well as the ordering cost and shipping cost to the supplier supporting dropshipping service.

Thirdly, The retailer earns the price difference after the buyer’s payment – the supplier’s payment – shipping.

You can see in the first phrase, Retailers often use Shopify to build a store to put their products online, (you can of course use other websites to sell them, we will talk about this later) In the second phrase, The retailer sends the buyer’s order information to the supplier. This is the model of buying and selling (usually using oblero), in the third phrase, what the retailer earns is the difference price between the product price he bought and sold. The following picture is a good explanation of the entire process of dropshipping.

What’s the advantages of dropshipping compared to traditional business?

If you start a traditonal business you may need start investment for the goods, for example, you need invest $5000 to start a store, and $2000 of them for goods import from Alibaba or Aliexpress, you also need to pay the store rent and human salary etc. There’s no much more money on store promotion. Moreover, you can not sell all the goods in short time, if you selected wrong products, they may unsalable, then it will became your stock and you will fill the pressure soon.

While dropshipping doesn’t have this problem, in the Dropshipping business model, the seller successfully transferred the inventory risk to the supplier, and also outsourced the packaged delivery of the order to the supplier, and only needs to focus on the operation and promotion of the Shopify store. In this way there is no inventory, you don’t handle shipping, packaging, you just need to put time on marketing, get more traffic, or you can have more time to test the product. In this process, it means that more budget can be invested in advertising. The same startup cost can be promoted by at least 80% in the Dropshipping mode.

So from this point of view, the advantages of dropshipping are obvious! When we promote a certain product, if you do not issue a single order for a week or a small number of orders, you will directly change the product. If you have a lot of stock, it’s not that easy.

What’s oberlo?

First of all, oblero is a plugin, and must be linked with Shopify and AliExpress to take effect. In other words, oberlo can only be used in shopify, other channels, such as wordpress, magento, and so on, are not used. With oberlo, you can import the products you want directly from AliExpress. You don’t need to edit the picture manually, you don’t need to write a title, description, etc. You only need to install the plugin in shopify, and then import the products from AliExpress into your shopify shop with one click, which is very convenient.

When you start Shopify dropshipping, you can

Install the Oberlo plugin in the background of your Shopify store;
At the same time, you can install the Oberlo plugin on the Chrome browser.
Open the AliExpress product page and add the required products to Oberlo;
Set price rules in Oberlo, modify product information, and import them into Shopify in batches;

The Shopify product import procedure is very easy with Oberlo plugin. So what function does obrero have?

1> Easily import products;

With Oberlo you don’t need to upload products one by one in the Shopify background. You only need to install the Oberlo plugin in Chrome, then open Aliexpress, and you can get AliExpress from a few clicks or directly from Oberlo Supply, a quality supplier product library certified by Oberlo. Your Shopify website imports thousands of products that support dropshipping.

2> Automatic order delivery

After promoting your website through Facebook Ads, etc. Then you get the order, just click on Order Product in the Oberlo background and confirm that Oberlo will automatically send the order information to the corresponding supplier of Oberlo Supply, or directly to the corresponding supplier of AliExpress. Place an order there and let Oberlo Supply or AliExpress send the goods directly to the customer.

3> Automatic product inventory and price updates

The Oberlo system automatically tracks inventory information and product price information from suppliers on Oberlo Supply and AliExpress, and pricing the products you sell at Shopify based on the pricing rules you set in the Oberlo back office. If the supplier inventory is 0, your website products will be automatically removed;

When the supplier adjusts the price, Oberlo automatically adjusts the sales price of the corresponding product on your website according to the rules you set. For example, if the supplier sells for $5, you set the price of the sales price of your own website product to be three times the supplier price, and force the addition of two decimal places to .97. Then, your product is priced at $15.97. When the supplier adjusts the price to $8, the price of the corresponding product on your website is automatically adjusted to $24.97.

In addition to the above three functions, Oberlo can also:

Freely edit the information of your imported products, product titles, product descriptions, product images, make it more attractive to users and increase conversion rate;

Order transportation status tracking, real-time understanding of your order shipping delivery status;

 Support setting sub-accounts, team-based division of labor to operate Dropshipping business;

 Count your sales and expenses, and clearly understand the profitability;

 It can filter and screen AliExpress products according to whether it supports E-mail shipment, improve the selection and product introduction efficiency;

 Support the wish list function, add the favorite products to the Wish list, and then publish to Shopify later;

 Support the shipment of products from Oberlo to AliExpress or Oberlo Supply;

 Support the same product to switch to different suppliers.

But if you need it, you can use Oberlo’s most advanced Pro version, which can cost up to 30,000 products per month for $79.9.

Can I do dropshipping without oblero?

Of course you can! Oblero is just a tool that can easily let you import products from AliExpress, track information, logistics, etc. You can do it without oblero, but the information, you have to track it yourself.

Can I get goods from 1688 to do dropshipping?

of course you can! Please remember, don’t always think about the oblero tool. If you compare it, think that the price of AliExpress is more expensive than 1688. If you want to get the goods from 1688 to do dropshipping, then you should not entangle this oblero tool. In addition, I have to tell you that oblero and AliExpress are the perfect combination, but if you have a better source of supply, you do not have to be limited to this area. To put it bluntly, what you are doing is to buy and sell the goods. Have you discovered that when you are really doing shopify dropshipping, you are actually doing a non-distribution model. Many people have been entangled in the tool of oblero. They like this tool too much. Except for shopify, other platforms cannot be used.

But I said, the vast majority of people, what they are doing is not the mode of distribution, you want to do better, in fact, you are doing vertical products. Then the vertical product is not the distribution mode, so from this point of view, it does not matter that you do not use the tool of oberlo. Because you are doing refined products, all your considerations are how to make the biggest profit in buying and selling, not for a tool. This is a lot of new dropshipping startups often encountered.

Oberlo’s Starter Plan is free to use and does not charge any fees. If you use Oberlo to process more than 50 orders a month, you will need to upgrade to Basic Plan, which costs $29.9 a month.

Why many people use Facebook to attract traffics for Shopify store?

In fact, it should be specifically using facbeook ads to get traffics, you can use shopify to quickly build a store, use AliExpress to make product prices (general profit is 15% to 50%), and then use facebook ads to quickly test products. So in the first two stages, you don’t have to spend too much time, so the effect of testing products directly with ads is faster, so you are less likely to hear people who do dropshipping rely on seo to get traffic. You are more likely to use the ads of facebook to get traffics.

The dropshipping principle is quickly test the product, quickly find the profit point for the product, this is a charm point of dropshipping! So, I think in the dropshipping model, the most important thing is your ability to choose product and your ability to get traffic. These two points are the most important!

How to use Facebook ads promote Shopify store

86deal-admin No Comments

In the current Internet society, traffic is really lacking for eCommerce business. So no matter how good our shopify store design is, how good the product is, we don’t promote it, and people can’t see us, therefore, active marketing becomes necessary. If you are doing Shopify cross-border e-commerce, Facebook is a hurdle that can’t be circumvented. Here we will share some tips how to use Facebook ads to promote Shopify store.

Follow Facebook advertising rules

You must follow FB’s advertising rules. Facebook launched page rating function. If your page rating is very low, then you can not pass to ads check. Therefore, it has been found that low page rating Shopify stores are difficult to survive on FB in the future.

All Facebook advertising content is being checked before published. Don’t waste time and money on content that people won’t accept. Generally speaking, the review time is 24 hours, but in many cases it will not be 24 hours…

Here are some ads that Facebook won’t accept:

Before xx, after xx pictures

For example, I am selling diet pills. I send some photos of customers before losing weight and after losing weight. This is not allowed.

Ads contains financial information

Ads contains time restriction information

For example, I want to maintain the heat of my own post for a while, so I deliberately create a suspense, and then say, after a few days, check my label to see the answer, this will not pass the ads check.

Drugs


Tobacco


Typo, too many grammatical errors

Adult supplies/services

Weapons, arms and explosive things


Sensitive or misleading information

If a user complains about your ad, even if it is in the early stages of the ad, it will be re-examined or even removed. I suggest that you carefully review their advertising policies before doing Facebook ads.

Use Facebook ads to tell a story

Even a short ad can tell a little story. Everyone loves to listen to stories regardless of their age, and the story can help us remember things. So, telling a story around a product can deepen people’s impression of this product.

One of the best stories to tell how to overcome a variety of difficulties in order to succeed. Many movies and TV shows are actually such subjects, but people who watch them are happy. Therefore, Facebook advertising can also be used in this way. If a product is promoted, it can be said that the hero is successful in relying on this product.

Of course, advertising will have exaggerated elements, but don’t be too exaggerated. Let’s take a look at the excellent representative of shopify in our industry, phonebibi Address: https://phonebibi.com/

Maybe after you open the address, you will be shocked by the price above, how can the goods price be so high? The important point here is that many of the descriptions on this website really seem to be writing stories. I like it a lot. Through the story, it is very sensational, so users are easily attracted. And this kind of story is really in line with many scenes that users usually encounter. So telling a story is really necessary.

Facebook ads content should be attractive

Many people do Facebook ads very simply, put the product in a background, take a video, or take a photo, but the result is that the advertising costs have been spent, but did not attract much attention . To draw more attention, it is necessary to create drama.

Provide coupon on Facebook ads

Yes, if you offer discount for clients to save money. The user will not likely to miss it. If your product is better, and there are discounts, others will stop to see your ads, and even the chances of entering your store will increase greatly.

Establish authority via Facebook ads

Facebook prefers reviews and interaction rates, and in fact the comment area is a great place to build authority and credibility. If a user asks a question, answer it. Remember, to be professional, after all, is our own product, must be authoritative. When we interact with these users, we are also building our own brand image.

Of course, negative comments are certainly there, and negative comments are not necessarily bad. Just like when we are visiting Amazon, if you see a store, all the reviews are praises and no bad reviews, or even a middle review, I always feel less credible. Because it is really impossible, what products are good for everyone? There must be people who have opinions. Of course, the bad reviews we want to leave are more pertinent, but like those without brains, the direct delete them.

Try Facebook video ads

The Facebook algorithm is actually friendly to the video content, relative to the text content. And not only is the Facebook platform more like video, but Facebook users also like it.

The data shows that more than half of the users watch videos on Facebook every day. So the chances that they will stop watching the video will be correspondingly larger.

Create a Facebook page to post ads

To create a Facebook fan community, we’ll take the time to create a Facebook page and post.

And the content doesn’t have to be long, we can share something that others have written, and in short, what you think your audience might like. In addition to the article, we can also share some videos, meme, photos and so on.

Ad Facebook contest

On Facebook, it’s still necessary to engage in activities.

Whether it is our store or a specific product, it is a good idea to start a competition. We can set a game to win, you can give a free product, which can stimulate user participation. We offer them free prizes, they give me free exposure, no matter which social platform, Facebook or Instagram, this is a very good marketing method.

Facebook ads should maintain relevance

We distribute Facebook to be relevant to our audience. because:

If the ad is relevant to the audience, the return on investment will be relatively higher.

Advertisements will receive fewer complaints

Can be approved (Facebook advertising policy: all content contained in the ad, including text, images, or other media, must be relevant to the audience)

Landing page is consistent with Facebook ads

The landing page we link to must be consistent with the content of the ad. In fact, this is not just this. I have said it in many places before. In any case, the landing page must be related to the previous content.

But this point, really many people have not noticed, thinking that to be a Facebook ad, just do the material well, I do not know the current fb will also review your ad landing page.

For example, if your advertisement sells women’s clothes, but the landing page of your link becomes a real estate page, that’s totally waste money.

User reviews can be facebook ads

If your shopify store has a lot of praise, you can fully display the praise of these users as the text information of the advertisement.

If there is really no comment, then make a fake comment (LOL)

Everyone likes to see the feelings and recommendations of other users, not just how good a business is when you say your product.

But what if you are promoting new products? What if there is no comment? We can send other people’s products and let others evaluate them. That is to measure, many brands are doing this now, whether it is a big brand or a small brand.

Share content other than sales

Not all ads are always saying “Come on! Come to buy!”

That’s why we are going to vomit when heard some advertisement now.

But now in this society, such advertisements with too much purpose are really tired. Therefore, we can occasionally send content that is not so strong in advertising. Can promote an event, or share some brand stories and so on.

From short ads to long ads remarketing

Facebook generally does not lengthen ads, only short ads. Most of the ads are within 15-30 seconds. Therefore, if there is too much text information in a picture, the review will not pass. Although Facebook can’t directly advertise, but you can put a link, we can put a long advertisement link from Facebook to the ad page.

We just send a short ad on Facebook, then add a “See more” at the end to learn more links.

This page, everyone is best not to make a hard and wide, made soft and wide. Then add a call-to-action button, so as long as the user believes us, you can click on the purchase. So, if the product you are doing needs to be explained, or if you need to provide more information, but this information can not be fully put into Facebook ads, you can choose this method. Moreover, the landing page of this link does not have to be text information, but can also be presented in video form.

Interruption ads

It’s the same as the advertisement when we watched TV. We watched TV well and suddenly there was an advertisement. This is an interrupted advertisement.

This is also the way Facebook ads use it. That is, it is possible that a user is watching his friend’s post, but our ad will suddenly appear in front of him. It was to interrupt him and to attract him under the premise of interrupting him. But this kind of interruption without warning requires us to guide him step by step by our products, so it is very important to guide him to visit our store.

In other words, in this case, our advertising is not to be a shopping guide, our advertising needs to be more affable and more convincing. The best way to do this is to provide a solution to the problem. For example, “I always forget to bring a key?…”

If an ad doesn’t have a call-to-action button, it doesn’t matter how good the content is. This call-to-action button can be either “Learn more” or “shop now”. In short, the simpler the road that the user buys, the simpler the steps that can be simplified. Because every step of the step, the possibility of losing customers is a little bigger.

If the call-to-action button for our ads is for users to go to Google for our store, there will be some users who choose to give up, yes, it’s so lazy. So these call-to-action buttons are to get straight to the point and go directly to our advertising page or our website.

Design a muting ad video

Many users are actually muted when using Facebook, such as me. So our video should let them understand the content even when it is muted, and even add subtitles.

For example, in our video, two people stood in a clear dialogue, no other scenes, and no subtitles. What if the other person is muted? (Do not design such a boring video) Sound and dialogue can really add a lot to the video, but even without sound, our video is good. Data shows that 85% of Facebook users are silent to watch videos.

Ads track users who have visited our site

Many people doing Facebook ads may directly track some new users, people who have not covered them before. This is really important, you are doing it right. However, it is more efficient to track directly those users who have been in contact with us before, because they have already had an impression of our brand, and even many of them have already seen our products, so they are likely to buy them.

So how do we set this up?

Step 1. Enter the Facebook Advertising Management Center

Step 2. Select settings, Pixels

Step 3, select Create Custom Audience

Step 4, Select All website visitors

Record Facebook ads data

Advertising must not only be done with the eyes closed, we have to monitor these data regularly. The monitoring data is in the Facebook Advertising Management Center I just talked above.

Step 1, Select create custom conversions

Step 2, Choose what you want to track in the category

There are many types here, as well as drop-downs, including entering payment information in our store, or adding a shopping cart, adding a wishlist, etc. can be recorded. This part is the function of Facebook remarketing. This function will play a particularly important role in the conversion of our website if we can use it.

You have to build a funnel in the re-marketing stage, sometimes don’t make money from a product. This kind of play is done by many people, directly introduced to the landing page, and then the user enters the LP, or Buy page etc.

This style of Facebook ads is still very basic. You have to build a funnel and sell it with other products. No matter whether the user clicks to buy or not sell, no matter what button he clicks (except for exit), you can benefit from it.

The above are some tips about how to use Facebook ads promote Shopify store, you will be succeeded in Shopify dropshipping business once you know how to take advantage of Facebook ads to attract target customers.

5 ways to select hot sale products for Shopify dropshipping

86deal-admin No Comments

I believe that Shopify seller the first time to do cross-border dropshipping will ask the same question: how to choose hot sale products for my Shopify store? No matter which platform, the product selection is a very critical issue. If you choose the right product, you have the opportunity to make money. If you choose the wrong product, losing money is inevitable. Everyone wants to choose the right product, then how can we know which products are popular and which are not? Today, we will share 5 ways to select hot sale products for Shopify dropshipping.

How to use Google Trends select products for Shopify dropshipping

When we select products for shopify store We can take advantage of Google Trends to understand the overall data of an industry or a product, including historical data and real-time data. When a product is hot, the search-related problems associated with it will increase accordingly.

Firstly, open Google Trends https://trends.google.com/trends/;

Secondly, enter the product keywords in the search bar;

Thirdly, check product keywords search results;

Enter the product keywords and you can see a graph of the various aspects of that product. Including its search volume, the region where the audience is located, the amount of related queries and the keywords related to it. Using these detailed data information provided by Google Trends, we can more easily find our target products for Shopify dropshipping business.

How to find the best-selling Print on demand products for Shopify dropshipping

Print on demand means that the seller cooperates with the supplier, the seller chooses the product (T-shirt, hat, cup) and designs the pattern by himself, and the supplier provides customized service for the seller. In other words, whether you are a painter, a writer, a designer, etc., you can make money with your creativity in this way.

Customization is also a good Shopify dropshipping method. Even if it is customized, you don’t need to purchase it yourself. After receiving the order, contact the supplier to customize it and then ship it. This method has low cost and large profit margin.

There are good vendor platforms for you: Custom cat, Print full and teespring.

These platforms are independent stations for suppliers of Print On Demand, and they will provide our dropshipper with product templates, which are solid color products.

Of course, we do not need to purchase. All we have to do is send the pattern design to the supplier after receiving the order, they will be responsible for printing and shipping.

Before deciding what to do, we can also take a look at these sites to see which niche, custom products are more popular. After made your decision, please ask the designer to design the product for the specific niche. For example, if you like wolf, you can ask a designer, or you can design some wolf totem T-shirts and put them in your shopify store.

How to use Facebook select products for Shopify dropshipping

If we are looking for products that are already sold and sold well on Shopify, then Facebook is the best platform. The product selection on Facebook is actually very simple, we just need to enter the product keywords we are looking for in the search bar of the Facebook page.

Step 1, login facebook;

Step 2, enter the women t-shirt keywords in the search bar and click on the post tab, as shown below:

Step 3, check facebook post;

After searching out, we found that someone is already selling. We can pay attention to the interaction rate of these products, including the praise, comments and share quantities. After reading this, we can go back to the store’s homepage to see the credibility of their homepage, the number of praises, and the creation time of the homepage.

I have shown that there is only one product, but there are definitely more than one women t shirts selling on Facebook, there should be hundreds of them, and most of them are doing Shopify dropshipping. These products are easy to find on AliExpress and 1688, and will also have a relatively large profit margin.

Some people may want to ask: Why do we want to sell products that others are already selling and selling well? In fact, the reason is very simple, just like we buy clothes ourselves, we will definitely buy the styles that are already popular now, instead of choosing clothes that we think will be popular in the future.

How to use eBay select products for Shopify dropshipping

Many dropshippers choose to open stores on eBay, but now the competition on eBay is getting more and more intense. Therefore, we can’t rely on the feelings of the product selection. We can first check the market in watchcount.

Watchcount is a website that serves eBay. On watchcount, we can see the real-time views of products on eBay, which means we can find out which eBay’s most popular products are currently.

Search product keywords on Watchcount include a lot of information, such as product categories, related categories, related products, related keywords, prices, sales, color, style information and so on. Let’s take the example of women top.

Step 1, go to the watchcount homepage;

Step 2, input product keywords in search bar;

Step 3, check product viewers;

This is the result of the search in watchcount, we can clearly see which styles and price of the women top is more popular. If we have no goals at the beginning, after reading this information, it is much easier.

How to use Aliexpress select products for Shopify dropshipping

At present, AliExpress is arguably the best dropshipping platform in the world. Almost all dropshippers are selling products with AliExpress and earning a fairly high profit. And on AliExpress, basically all the products we can find.

There are millions of suppliers on AliExpress, but not all these suppliers are qualified. When selecting products, we should pay attention to the product reviews, as well as the credibility of the suppliers and the overall evaluation of their stores. We must find a reliable supplier that can guarantee the quality of the product, and also pay attention to the supplier whether supports ePacket or not, ePacket makes it easier and cheaper to do Shopify dropshipping. Now let’s see the steps of the AliExpress product selection for Shopify dropshipping.

Step 1, login Aliexpress, please register an Aliexpress account if necessary;

Step 2, View the category menu on the left side of the home page, which contains all the products on AliExpress. Here we still take women’s clothing as an example. We can see that there are more small categories under the women’s clothing category, such as tops, bottoms, and accessories.

Our target products are entirely dependent on the research we have done before and our target market. Therefore, in the case of this large selection range, our target niche must be very specific;

Step 3, Select specific subcategories, we now choose shirts as a sample;

Step 4. Sort by sales;

This way we can see which products are popular and high sales volume in short time.Here we can not only look at sales and other information, we can also set our target products more specific, and narrow the scope of choice.

Here we can also choose the material of the clothes, such as cotton, silk, nylon, etc.; also have long sleeves, sleeves, short sleeves, sleeveless and so on.

In fact, just like we usually visit Amazon, it takes a few minutes to understand which models of the target products are relatively hot. Be sure to pay attention to the sales of a product, as well as the number of comments from users. You can view this product in different aspects. But you must also pay attention to this. If there are too many such products on AliExpress, you want to do this product later, remember that you must go to see facbeook and see posts, videos about these products.

If the product post, or video on facebook are very long and numerous, then you probably won’t be able to sell this product again, because these points means the product is very likely to be sold on the market by too many sellers, when you advertise, users don’t feel anything special, and they probably won’t buy.

The above are the 5 ways to select hot sale products for Shopify dropshipping, the product selection is an art, you can only learn after a lot of experimentation. The product selection needs to be carefully considered. After researching the selected products, you must first test to see which products are sold well, and then promote them.

Why 99% Shopify sellers failed on cross border dropshipping?

86deal-admin No Comments

There are various discussions about How to become rich with Shopify dropshipping. However, the reality is that 99% of Shopify sellers have failed to make big money with the cross border dropshipping business, which is quite inconsistent with the promotion of many Shopify masters. So how do you avoid repeating the mistakes of 99% shopify sellers and join the 1% successful people? There are some suggestions for the Shopify sellers.

Choose a distinctive Niche

The No.1 principle of Shopify dropshipping is the goods Niche, no matter Shopify, Amazon or any other eCommerce business you must first consider what kind of market segment you want to choose. In short, you have to choose the products to be sold.

Social media marketing also follows the principle that 20% of work determines 80% of results. 99% of the people’s mistakes are in follow-up. The Niche conclusions obtained by various analytical methods are products that are sold in countless stores.

For a specific example, like a dog collar. People or most people don’t buy generic products from Shopify stores or Facebook ads, just as you don’t buy toilet paper from Facebook ads. What you should do is to use the search engine’s auto-fill term feature to find inspiration when searching for Niche. For example, add a space a after the generic product dog collar, and choose one of the following automatically generated entries to be Niche.

Like the dog collar army, you can test your army-style dog collars with Facebook ads, including dog collars inspired by some of the most famous generals. They are all very good Niche.

For another example, like earrings, don’t choose the general product earrings, but use the method we mentioned above to find inspiration from the terms that the search engine automatically fills. For example, the earrings animal search for animal-shaped earrings is a good Niche. Imagine if a Facebook user has an upcoming birthday, her husband might want to buy such a pair of earrings to send her as a birthday present. On the contrary, if you choose a universal product such as dog collars and earrings, it is unlikely that someone will buy these products from Facebook ads.

Before you start the Shopify dropshipping business, you need to think about how to accurately target your audience and find the target customer base. So your Niche should never choose some general merchandise.

Shopify stores also need operation

99% of people have the wrong idea that Shopify stores can make people rich overnight. These people think that they can realize their e-commerce business from one day or one week without knowing anything about Shopify. What they don’t know is that successful e-commerce companies test hundreds of products every day, change the various settings of the store, and summarize which products are successful and which are unsuccessful; like all business activities, Creating a successful e-commerce company also requires a lot of time investment, a lot of work and a certain amount of capital investment.

Don’t think that just using Oberlo to import merchandise to your Shopify store, you can wait for the successful Dropshipping to become the next richest millionaire. You need to do a lot of tangible work, such as creating mailing lists, building good relationships with your customers, relocating customers, sending coupons to old customers, and more.

Gave up once failed

Many people put a total of less than 10 items in the Shopify store, created an ad group for each item, the result is no one sold successfully, and then abandoned the Shopify store. Regardless of online and offline, the key to determining the success of an entrepreneur is how strong his willingness to succeed.

Many people may spend 100 dollars, 200 dollars, or 500 dollars to create a Shopify store and place Facebook ads, but they don’t work, so they give up. Maybe you only need a successful goods. And you don’t know that the e-commerce industry has the snowball effect. Once you have a breakthrough, you will soon face the dilemma of out-of-stocks. 99% of people gave up before they successfully sold their first item.

Workload gold distribution ratio

Our 20% activity determines 80% of our results. For Shopify stores, which are the focus of our work? Below I will analyze how the workload should be allocated from the three main tasks of the Shopify store:

20% of the workload is spent creating stores; (in my own case, I am familiar with the creation of the Shopify store, I am familiar with the placement of Facebook ads, and have a wealth of e-commerce sales experience. I usually spend a day creating a Shopify shop.)

30% of the workload is used to select Niche and merchandise;

51% of the workload is used for marketing (I deliberately emphasize more than half of the workload);

What about the order fulfillment? Just find a professional order fulfillment agent to outsource the jobs which could make your dropshipping business more effective. 86Deal is a reliable Chinese order fulfillment agent who provides one stop order fulfillment services including sourcing, purchasing, warehousing, QC, label and packaging customization, order printing, consolidation packing, shipping and tracking upload etc.

Separate the primary and secondary jobs, spend time on productive things

Before you create a Shopify store, make sure you have your Niche and merchandise. Otherwise you may have spent a lot of time and money creating a Shopify store without any sales. You have to spend your time testing product and ad targeting, both of which are about store profitability, rather than spending a lot of time creating attractive Twitter or Pinterest accounts.

The above points are the analysis of the 5 reasons why 99% of people failed on Shopify dropshipping business. I hope that the suggestions I have given above will help you join the 1% success list as soon as possible!

Top 16 free and paid apps for Shopify dropshipping 2019

86deal-admin No Comments

We know that using shopify to open a store is now a very straightforward process especially for dropshipping business. However, the shopify store itself has limited functionality, so we sometimes need to add some plugins or apps for more features to facilitate the store marketing purpose to increase sales. Here we list the Top 16 free and paid apps for Shopify dropshipping in 2019 to help you increase customer experience and sales, all of them can be easily found at the Shopify apps store.

Bundle Upsell

$47/month, one week free trial period. (a little expensive)

Bundle Upsell is mainly to recommend some products related to the products in the customer’s shopping cart. For example, if you have a pair of running shoes in your shopping cart, I will recommend sportswear for you, recommend sports headphones and so on. In this way, customers are encouraged to spend more at one time.

Beeketing Checkout Boost

$20 per month, 15 days free trial period. This plugin can add some buttons for social sharing on the billing page, as well as some gifts, discounts, and a countdown to make the customer settle.

It could help you increase free traffics in long terms.

Sumo List Builder

This plugin is mainly to help us collect the user’s mailbox information. I have said before that the importance of email marketing is no longer repeated. The app could help you capture the visitor emails in the most delightful way and increase order value with discounts or coupons.

Yotpo Reviews

Yotpo allows us to show more user-generated content, which is the user reviews. If a product in the store has a lot of reviews, it can directly increase the trustworthiness of this product; if these evaluations are better, you can even increase sales directly. Let’s take a look at the features of this plugin:

Show reviews in a small section

Fully autonomously controllable

A praise can increase sales by 10%.

Therefore, this plugin I recommend everyone to use when designing the store.

MacAfee Secure

Free, paid versions are available. This plugin is mainly used to protect our customer information. After installing this plugin, a safely certified banner will appear on our website, increasing the trust of our customers in our store. Of course, this is definitely not just for good looks, the role is also real, MacAfee Secure can check our website for viruses, to ensure the security of the site.

Product Recommendations

$9.99 a month, one week trial period. It is true that a store with product recommendation is much better than a store without any recommendations. Because there are product recommendations, customers will stay longer in the store and browse more products, so they are more likely to buy. And my favorite thing about this plugin is that it’s very flexible. We can choose to recommend products by type, or you can choose to recommend them by hot sale. The products that users have recently viewed, new products, or similar products are similar to the products they are looking at. In short, everyone chooses the most useful for themselves.

Persistent Cart

$3.99 a month, with a one-month trial period. I don’t know if you have those kind of shopping experience. When you shopping for a longer time and all the shopping carts in front are gone. That’s really annoyed and it will definitely lose a lot of orders. This plugin is to allow our store to avoid this situation. It automatically associates the customer’s shopping cart with his account to prevent customers losing their shopping cart, so there is no chance that the shopping cart will disappear.

One Click Social Login

$4.99 a month, half-month trial period. With this plugin, users can log in to our website directly with a social account without having to re-register, completely simplifying the user registration process. Social accounts that can be logged in include:

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Amazon, Google+, Instagram, Meetup.com, Outlook and Yahoo.

This is not only convenient for users to register, but also convenient for us to record user information.

Audience Push to Facebook

Facebook ad redirects, especially tracking those users who have visited our store but eventually abandoned the purchase. The benefit of this plugin is that it can be used to redirect ads to customers who have visited our store for a long time, thus establishing a long-term relationship with customers. We can also choose which objects to send ads to, including those who have registered for our website, have entered the checkout interface, shopped once or more times.

Edit Order by Cleverific

$19 a month, 14-day trial period. When we usually shopping online, did you find that you have filled in the wrong address just after placing an order, or the color is wrong, and you have chosen one more and so many wrong mistakes? So in order not to let our own customers encounter such things, it is necessary to modify the order. This plugin, as long as it has not been shipped, can be modified directly through this plugin. This is for the user experience, but also can reduce the return rate.

WishList Plus

It has both free and paid version. Two-week free trial period. Many users sometimes come to browse our stores, but just look at it and don’t really want to buy it. Maybe it’s because there is no money, or there is no need. But if I like it, I still want it. So this plugin is to allow this type of customer to add a wish list, and users can even add a wish list without even logging in, so we know which products are more popular. And we can also sync this wish list to different devices, and even give these users occasionally emails to remind them that they have not bought anything they like.

Easyship

Cross-border dropshipping have one of the biggest concerns, and sometimes the biggest trouble – logistics. Sometimes the freight is too high, which will cause the customer to abandon the purchase or directly cause us to lose profits. Easyship is a plug-in for shipping that I personally like, which gives us discounts on shipping rates for over 100 logistics companies (including FedEx and UPS). And he even calculated the tariffs along with other fees to be charged, so there would be no expenses that we didn’t know, and it would cause losses. There are a lot of automatic functions, we can set the rules ourselves, such as UPS with less than one kilogram of goods, or choose the lowest price every time.

Pre-Order Now

$14.99 a month, two weeks free trial period. Sometimes when a hot item being sold out, but there are still many customers who want it, and the result is the item can’t be bought, so they will choose other brands and we will lose some customers. In this situation, the customers are lost, and this part of the customer will basically not come back. So how to avoid this embarrassing situation? With Pre-Order Now, you can directly pre-sell the product, even if it is not available yet, or is currently sold out, no stock, you can directly pre-sale.

Tidio Live Chat

Both free and paid versions are available. In general online shopping, the real time customer service will increase user experience, and any problems can be solved immediately. This plugin is an automatic customer service plugin I like very much, and it has many useful features:

See who is browsing our website, you can go straight to say hello;

The problem will be automatically answered within 10 seconds;

Support mobile terminal;

Support for multiple languages.

Product Compare

$5/month, one week free trial period. Sometimes you encounter two products are very similar and don’t know which one to choose. The role of this plugin comes. You can compare two products together to help customers make decisions. The clients could share the compare list to friends and ask for help before ordering.

Ok, the above are the Top 16 free and paid apps for Shopify dropshipping 2019,Here I would like to remind everyone don’t put all the plugins installed, pick the ones that you think are useful for your dropshipping business. You can uninstall the apps without any practical meaning. Installing so many plugins will definitely affect the speed of the website.
