    Hi
    I know Shopify is great but i don't have savings to test dropshipping.I have Instagram page to bring visitors,So I am looking for free alternatives.
    I researched and found
    1. Wix
    2. Big Cartle
    Are they good to start my online store ? If anyone using them please let me know or if you have any informations.
    Thanks

    These websites arn't free to use for ecommerce, I know you can get a free wix but with a shitty URL on .wix.com or wixsite.com and advert everywhere on the site.

    The cheapest alternative you can get is by using wordpress + woocommerce plugin. You just have to pay for the domain name and the hosting.

    Also shopify offer a month or something for free to test, but IMO the monthly price is too high after the trial..

    Good luck on your dropshipping test !

    Nothing better than Shopify for dropshipping, if you want free then i would say wp.

    I've never tried, maybe someone else could say if it's a good choice. Anyway with the free version you cannot have a custom domain and some limitations, if your traffic method do not need to have a clean domain it's ok I guess.

    The best you can do is to try it, shopify also have 14 days free https://www.shopify.com/free-trial so you can check if your method work and if you can make some money .

    FYI, your visitor will need to enter a password when they visit your store in the trial period :)
