    Hello friends!

    I've just started getting into dropshipping and I am currently building my shopify store while also reading guides and just gathering as much information on the whole aspect as much as I can.

    Now one of the most popular methods I see, specifically on facebook advertising, is the whole "Product is FREE, just pay shipping!"

    This seems to work well, however I'm curious just how well.

    While I won't specifically say what my niche is, it's a range of popular $1-10 products and I'm really unsure whether I should go for this model of FREE items with shipping cost or just market them a certain amount above their price and do it as free shipping.

    (Using aliexpress also).

    Apart from that, I'm constantly trying to find new information that can help. If any of you know any specific guides, case notes, tips and tricks that can help, definitely let me know! :)

    Business is in development and my dropship sites although fully finished are a bit lower on my list to focus on as I got other priorities ATM :) still getting a couple sales though without any promotion :)

    Go for low cost fee with shipping included. People will not continue after checkout when they see that shipping is 20$...

    Dropshipping Best Practices ??

    i think start small, using marketplace (ebay + Bonanza + Etsy ), than use our own website, if have enough budget , use FB ads. Also, use WANELO, & PINTEREST. Reddit is also a good to get FREE traffic.

    so far, i prefer to start on marketplace first, so we can focus on product quality & customer service.
