    A little about myself: I am currently a sophomore in high school living in California. I started doing basic freelance web-building work when I was twelve, and than moved on to more social media work and entrepreneurial stuff when I was around fourteen.

    Now I am currently getting around 1k sales every day, resulting in give or take $600 profit. I am running a store using Shopify and drop shipping, will probably be looking into SEO for a future career.

    Trying to manage my job along with school is quite a challenge. I use Oberlo to place the orders, but I don't have any time to go back into the program to do the updates to provide the email letting the customer know that their item has shipped. Been looking for a VA, just don't know if I can trust them with these tasks. If only there was a way to auto send out an email to customers when their order has shipped it would reduce a ton of time. Another main complaint I receive is that orders take way to long to arrive even if I use ePacket, with a low percentage of customers returning. Been looking into warehouses in the US that could stock and ship inventory to reduce the shipping timeframe, but they all have a big fee from what I can find.

    All I can say is to stay motivated and test the market. Try products, people will only look in the past at the products that have failed and give up. Change your mindset and adjust your approach, cause you will find a method that is successful.

    Cheers

    I'm not familiar with your system, what is it that notifies you that their order has shipped out? you could pretty easily write something in python that will then link into the API of something free like MailChimp.

    Basically, if this is really your biggest hurdle/time-waste right now, you should definitely automate it!

    Yep.

    Thank you!

    Yea, I always thought about automating this process. Unfortunately, I don't know python very well, but I could probably get a script and run it within my VPS.

    Lol, when a senior bully comes to you, you show them your earnings, and they'll shit their pants running in despair.

    How sustainable is this? It's easy to have a killer day and post a thread up about it. It's different to have these numbers put up consistently. How long have you been attaining this level, and is this something that you can honestly see continuing at this pace for an extended period of time.

    I've had days where my monthly ORM retainers all come in at once. I don't call that a $15,000 day. I call that a $15,000 month.

    I wish I was doing numbers like that while I was 16 and in school full time.

    Congratulations on your achievements at such a young age. Please tell us more...?

    Products, traffic source, etc?

    You're sure you're 16? I have a feeling that you got more hair on your balls than me.
