    Hey All!

    Here we go, Etsy has changed their terms some time ago to allow drop shipping.

    Last time I did this, it was when the Pokemon GO era was booming, Etsy didn't like this, however, people were buying lots and lots of jewellery and hats with the team logos on, I've got a decent amount of knowledge about dropshipping but any extra input if you can see that I'm not doing something quite right would be great :)

    So this is the plan -
    1. Find a niche that will be easily dominated by low prices
    2. Upload 10 products and see the demand.
    3. Start an Etsy PPC Campaign
    4. Find out if the Conversion Rate from PPC is worth it.
    5. Scale to 100 Products.
    6. If necessary, open a new shop in a new niche and repeat.
    So far I've found my niche and uploaded 6 products.
    In the last 7 Days, I've had 1300 Impressions, 8 Clicks & 0 Sales.

    I will be updating the thread weekly with Sales data and answers to questions if anyone has any (unless it's about the niche)

    If this still works I'll upload a guide on how I found this niche,

    Deathass01 :)

    Don't be afraid to sell more expensive stuff, the margins are usually bigger + the customers are more likely to buy: Someone browsing free trinkets may be too broke to afford anything, but someone looking to buy a custom chessboard....

    First time hearing of Etsy+dropship. Good luck. Also 1300 views to 8 clicks is a bad af metric (at least in my eyes)

    Yeah CTR of the images are actual Dog S**T xD
    I may need to look at switching up the feature images to get that improved eventually but just proving a concept to start :D

    How you manage to get unique images of the products. What are you filling on the product page, "Is it created by you" or "someone in your store option". I tried too once a few months back but they banned my account.

    What should I do ?

    Hey Yaaash, I use the created by someone else option so far. I'll keep everything updated, I've had the store open for about 2 weeks so far and no ban. Maybe there'll be one incoming once I start selling products, cheers.

    What about the images? How you post unique images (that are not available anywhere else). Do you stuff keyword everywhere possible ? They banned my account by saying that the products I am selling are not mine and are available by other sellers on various sites like Amazon, eBay (they sent me the link to the same products available on both sites.) Foolish me :(

    Remember this is a work in progress. He is experimenting and yes he has bee starting slowly. Maybe he is not sure what direction to go with and wants to see if the etsy marketplace will support what he is doing before he goes onto sites like Pinterest or spends money on paid advertising.

    Good luck on your Etsy journey. I look forward to reading your updates. Don't be afraid to play around with the price on the ads, you would be surprised at how many clicks you can get for the 3c and 4c range if it is a niche with lower competition.
