    Hey guys, I have a question. Can I put products from etsy on my shopify and dropship with their brands?

    For example:

    Etsy shop name: Aaa and product name is Bbb. In my site I will list product as Bbb from Aaa. Is it possible? And will I get any sales?

    The prices on Etsy are on the higher end in most cases anyway so you wont have much of a margin unless you can strike a deal. I would not try doing it without the Etsy shop owner knowing first because there is an app out there that helps etsy sellers see if their products are being sold elsewhere. They get all pissy if you do it without them knowing. It would be best anyway to get to know the supplier of the products and to try and get a discount anyway so it's best to reach out t them first.

    There is no reason why this would be any different to doing drop shipping with any other supplier.

    Why would people shop through you instead of going to etsy especially if you are stating its a product from that shop. You will have to give an incentive to them to shop there. Why would they trust your shopify site over a multi billion dollar marketplace. If you get sales or not is 100% down to how much effort you put in. You cant just slap up a few products to a store and expect to get sales.

    Thank you for the quick reply, do you recommend any stores like etsy? I'm talking about jewelry.

    Well, affiliate is not for me :p I'd like to open a shop instead

    They pay 4% so its hardly worth it. I have been promoting Etsy for a while using Pinterest which is showing some results now, but it has taken a long time for a lot of the pins to mature and generate any sort of commission. I would not recommend it for someone looking for fast cash.

    Well Etsy is a marketplace with lots of stores. So I'm not sure what you mean. If you want to sell peoples jewelry then the best bet you have is to work out some sort of wholesale deal on something and do it that way selling on your own site.
