    is this easy to do? I just saw a shop on Instagram and this guy is selling stuff for like 60 bucks and I found it on eBay for like 20 he also has 2 dollar items listed at 10

    Is there a limit on how many items you can have on your Shopify? Any good tips like should I list a lot of stuff or just a few items? Can you do this without paying for advertising?

    Should i try out the same items as him? I want a very similar type of store to his and I have a lot of ideas on what to put up and everything correleates so I think people will buy more than 1 thing if they like it and I found a seller on eBay that ships cheap and fast as fuck too and I asked an eBay seller about stuff I wanna sell and they gave me permission to sell their shirts.

    Also some of the stuff I want to sell I have already bought for myself so I can gurantee it'll come plus I have an hd camera on my phone so I can take really amazing pictures and videos too.

    Hi. What I've understood on everything I've read is that it's NOT EASY but possible. I'd like to try it myself as well but I'm kinda confused.

    Also what I've understood you can't have items on your spotify. :D Shopify might be different thing.

    It seems simple but its really not. You gotta put a lot of time and effort, but once you do its very rewarding.

    As You've Mentioned This U Supposedly Answered Your Own Question.
    Selling Overpriced Things Is NOT Easy When The Customer Also Has Access To The Same Product When Its Cheap.
    The Way You Market , The Type Of Traffic , How Your Website Looks , How You Persuade Someone To Buy It All Matters.
    The Idea Is Simple But Implementation Is Difficult & Now Takes A Lot Of Effort Or A Bit More Starting Budget Than U Would Invest In Other Methods.
    But If You Get To The Sweet Spot After Working Hard , Its Gonna Be Easy To Make More Stores Repeating What You Did With The Previous One :)

    If you also want to dropship from Ebay then it may be difficult. Some users will check prices online. Only if item look costlier then you can make easy sales.

    Is surely not easy. You will face lots of challenges but with experience you will get better. I started private label e-commerce in 2011 with a partner/investor and now I do dropshipping as overhead costs are low and I can do it alone (keeping all profits with myself)

    Someone else, I'm kinda bad in creating courses beside my dropshipping thread which I already have edited before through the help of a mod and still not completely happy but then again I'm never happy :p https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/d...bly-long-ass-read.939866/page-9#post-10674049

    I am contemplating a dropshipping service to help people as I get tons of PM's that I don't have always time to reply but we'll see how the future goes :)

    Here is one though.

    Don't Type Sentences Like This, I Know You Made A Habit Of It But Not Necessary On The Forum :) You Only Use This Kind Of Typing When You Have A Short Sentence In A Add Or An Add Title. :)

    Thanks for this... since the first block of mixed capitalized text hit my eyes I've popped 3 aspirin and drank half a glass of water.

    ** MOD: sorry for double post, I tried to multi-quote and not sure why it's not working **

    I would suggest reading @Billy_Batts 's thread he has linked.

    Lots of great information to make you aware from the start that you will most likely fail and should expect to do so.

    Determination, perseverance, hard work, and not giving up will help in the long run.

    ... that and tracking everything you do in an excel sheet to make educated decisions on what works, and what does not.
