    So I'm creating this journey to hopefully motivate some of you to do this, aswell as keep me motivated and get suggestions from you guys.

    My goal is to hit 10k a day in sales with a product. To some it may sound crazy, but it's really not because it's not hard to scale on facebook ads. A family member of mine did 80k in 10 days with no experience, so it's very possible.

    I started about 2 months ago. In December I shared a Shopify site with that family member, and had sales. About $200 but wasn't converting well. I made my own store now so it's easier to calculate costs and as well as have my own pixel.

    January I didnt do much due to exams but now I'm ready.

    On this journey I will post sales, profit, fb results, what I did that day and other strategies I used. I will not be sharing my product, nor my store until I decide to give up on that product and move to the next. Then I maybe will share the product, ads, and targeting.

    What I have done so far on the new store:
    designed it (General store)
    made a logo and added some products
    tested a few products unsuccessfully
    and just launched a new product about 3 hours ago from now.

    my plan

    These are the results so far from the product I just started. So far it's looking good but it's too early to tell. 15 cents per click on that one adset is great, a lot of times clicks will cost 0.50 so 0.15 is good, this cost may go up because it's too early right now, but it could also go down in a few days after it optimizes. I'll be launching more ad sets tonight or tomorrow. Also I will try to launch a product a day until Monday as I don't have school or work until Monday.

    I'll try to keep this thread updated 2-5 times a week.

    I agree. It may take awhile to find the converting product. I may have to try 30 different products or even more. But I do think that once I find the converting product that it can be scaled to 10k a day within 1-2 weeks by increasing budget and trying different ad sets.

    I actually did the shopify+free item+charge shipping fee+facebook ads method 2 years ago. I made $$ the first day. Unfortunately, I have a premium credit card which means it has very strict security rules. I was not able to use it on the chinese dropshipping site. (triggerred the security alarm and locked every time.) :(. Besides, Shopify dosen't support currency exchange. (I sold in US dollar, but my bank is in CAD. They don't convert it automatically. :(). I gave up because I was minding other projects, and didn't want to go through all the fuss.

    I hope you will continue your journey no matter how bumpy it is, and make a living off it. :)

    I'm in Canada aswell. With rbc. You can open a us currency account but there is a conversion fee. And my family members card got locked up often aswell and he just had to give them a call. But what he learned after is that you can pay at the end of the day. So instead of having 200 orders on aliexpress in 1 day, you can order all of them and pay at the end of the day . I tried the free plus shipping. Got alot of atc but no sales. So I stopped f+s

    So you used entropay to open shopify right?

    You cant deposit through a cc I believe. I think you have to connect a bank account

    PayPal and shopify payments. But my guess is if eventually I do scale, after about 1-2 months, the customers that didn't recieve their products will dispute and my paypal will get limited.
