    I'm NOT new to dropshipping. I have dropshipped from aliexpress to ebay before. But I have ZERO experience in facebook advertising o_O

    Facebook advertising plays a major role in the Shopify method. Therefore I'm a little nervous since I have never tried fb ads.

    Do you think $500 will be enough to give it a go? For everything including testing fb ads, Shopify fees, App fees etc?

    Or should I save some more? :confused:

    Thanks in advance :)

    That really depends, fb split testing could burn through 1k$ and not find a good combo or you could get lucky and find it fast.

    google shopify 60days trial, it will save some for u
    watch some videos about dropshipping and FB ADS targeting.. it will helps u a lot
    and about 500$, it depends on how much time and money u spend in order to find ur winning product, maybe u will find urs after spending 10$ or 50$ or even 1000$, it depends bro
    anyway, good luck

    I got started with $25 for adwords, plus $100 free credits. Guess I got lucky, cause fir time I set it up I got a few campaigns/keywords with 6%+ CR. It's doable if you start small and choose your targets carefully. FB wasn't so nice to me though.

    I would think that would be an ok starting budget, depending on the niche of course.

    Paid Advertising is where Aliexpress and "dropshipping" ideas end. First, All the "idiots" who would fall for cheap China knockoffs have bought, period. Now that more people have done it, the news about the items "quality" has floated around, so thus tese noobs went to sell on eBay / Amazon. Since that is now saturated there is no "money" to be made copying others. I sell custom made eBikes from parts bought online to local noobs looking for a great deal. I suggest you get creative or you will lose your money, and your shirt too.

    Good find! It's too bad that the 60 day one is gone but this is the best trial link right now!

    Use $100 to set your operation and the remaining $400 to advertise and experiment.

    You need to set as much moneya s possible towards testing, because as you said, this is the area where you need to learn.
