    Hey guys been on this forum for a while but haven't really posted at all. I've been trying eCommerce, Dropshipping, Web Dev, Website Flipping since last year (I'm still at high school so most of this was during holidays and weekends stuff) I have learnt a lot from forums especially BHW honestly the best out there!!! Saved so much money with free plugins downloads here :) . So next month I'm going to start a fully proper eCommerce store again with a $100 budget for marketing (I already have hosting, website, suppliers, and domain). Any tips or ideas I should try out as a experiment?

    Well to start I wish you well for your project. Look at the marketplace on here for social media, lots of good services run by experts.
    What are you going to use, WooCommerce or Shopify?

    Ali express for stock/dropshipping = Adwords (shopping) for sales

    Well I have been using WooCommerce for a few smaller try it out projects. It seems fairly easy to use and been trying out the AliDropShip plugin for a while and its really easy to import products in a few minutes. I looked at shopify and it seems much more expensive at about $80 a month whereas I only pay about $80 for a whole year for wordpress. Which one do u think is better?

    Yea Aliexpress is really good and I have used it before only downside I think is high shipping times usually a down point in getting customers. Also haven't tried Adwords so will definetly look at this! Thanks!

    Definitely WordPress, more versatile and a lot cheaper. Shopify can be expensive, think of you profit margin. No need for more costs eating away at your profit

    Best to do it in the journey section, this is really for introducing yourself. Good luck, not that you'll need it as you seem pretty clued up
