Hey, This is my attempt to open an E-Commerce store and make money online after reading and researching about Shopify + AliExpress. I've decided to follow Adrian Morrison's method of Just Pay Shipping, i.e. Free + $9.99 shipping fee (I don't know if this method was started by Adrian first, but I definitely learned it from him). For this thing to work I've created or used the following: * Shopify store * Oberlo app * AliExpress account * Facebook ads In order to setup my Shopify store, I read the article "How to Launch an Online Store with No Cash Investment" by Shopify. Also, I installed an FB page view and conversion pixels code in my Shopify store, after watching a YouTube video about this. Also, I bought a .net domain (because the .com domain was taken) and it has the same name as my shopify name. For example, if my Shopify name is "5dollargifts.shopify.com", then my domain name is "5dollargifts.net" (note that this is an example and not the actual name of my shop). For my niches, I searched for "Just Pay Shipping" ads in Facebook, and then spied on their shopify stores. Basically, you can append the following text to any Shopify store URL to see their best selling products (I learned about this after watching a YouTube video): HTML: /collections/all?sort_by=best-selling&page=1 Obviously the products that I choose has to be less than $5, preferably below $2, so that the shipping fee can cover all the cost associated with the product. Also, I look for high orders for each product. When selecting suppliers, I look for good feedback and ratings, I will message the supplier when ordering with "This is a gift (dropshipping). Please do not include your invoice." Most suppliers are happy to oblige. Also, I make sure that my suppliers have "ePacket" shipping for USA as I intend to sell to USA. As I heard about good and bad things about suppliers on AliExpress, I decided to order several products on my store to test each of my suppliers. I was on Facebook today, and I met someone, who had bought Adrian's Ecom Success Academy course and is reselling it to 50 people at a fraction of the original price. As it was a great value, I decided to purchase the product from him. (Note: I received my first product from AliExpress today and I will update about it in my next post).
