    The paypal statement is misleading. The "freeze" is proof of stock. I.e your suppliers information it's some EU government shit you can sell tons of items and never get it but if you sell the same item again and again expect to be hit. Also if your a new seller selling on ebay you will have your funds frozen this is ebays rulling not paypal.

    In regards to same item sales all you need to do is provide your suppliers information and a few personal documents and you won't get the freeze. I had it on my main account went through it fine was sorted in under 7 days took a few calls though to chase them up. Then I opened another to upsell shop bought items not a good idea through paypal as they don't see shop bought receipts as evidence. Well they didn't in my case. I just kept selling had money to fall back on. Treated it as a savings account.... just waited for the large payout at the end.

    Just remember whenever you go into a business adventure to have funds to fall back on. Dealing with disputes etc especially when buying in bulk. Oh an always double check your stock if you can't because it's drop shipping try to order a sample. Trust me it will save you in the long run.

    Hah that's hilarious. Either the Canadian government hates the US or they want to extort companies because they know full well they need to send mail to and from the states. Imagine the cost of sending standard confirmation mail to your customers I wonder if they get a bulk discount. It would be cheaper to hire someone in the States to ship it out for you. Probably why people outsource all the time. I do the same with sending to the States. I drop ship it's quite expensive to send mail from the UK to America not to mention the time scale, that is the bug bare all customers whine about.

    Another tip about RETARGETING.

    Retarget abandoned checkout on mobile and target them when on Desktop.

    People sometimes don't buy on their phones.

    @Lunaaa Are you using a specific plugin to add products from Aliexpress to your Shopify store?

    Yes, he is using shopifiedapp and @Nave I know you haven't read the thread at all, since it's just couple of pages away where he has mentioned that very thing.

    BTW, for the question which is the best? It depends, since the opinion of everyone is different and see, I'm completely out of shopify and using WP for my sites.

    You mentioned that your #1 product is of x niche.

    Why is that? Isn't that too big of a niche already with lots of competitors?
    How do you decide on which niche and products to go after?

    Within Shopify it's the most used and easiest, You can use it free up to a few orders a month, after that you need to upgrade to a subscription.

    I played around with it a bit and it is very easy, it will import everything very fast and it's easy to customize but in the end I switched to WP and Woocommerce because I don't like all the subs that shopify has.

    That being said, shopify has an awesome customer support.

    Sounds like an ambitious plan, and I'm on the same boat traveling there. Just read up on @nihalsad guide. Feel free to contact me as I would greatly appreciate bouncing ideas back and forth, plus nothing like a little friendly competition :D. May the odds be ever in our favor.

    Update: so my fb account was banned a few days ago. Probably because of the product. Fuck! I made. 1k of it though. But it probably wasn't worth it. I would have rather kept my ad account.

    Anyways, I still have my personal ad account that's not banned. It has the same payment method as my banned ad account, so when they charge me I'll see if they will notice and ban my account. Anyway I'm running ads on it for a new product.

    Also I made a new fb account on a new ip and I'm warming it up by doing some activity on it. I'll be ordering a credit card tommorow morning so in 7-10 days I'll get it. Then ill make a ad account on the new fb Acc.

    What I'll be doing:
    In a few days I'll reach my threshold on my unbanned account. If it gets banned after billing, then I won't be able to run ads until I get the new card.

    I also got access to some very long course on FB ads, so I'll be watching it in the mean time aswell as research more products, get ads ready, get my targeting ready. So if my unbanned account gets banned, when my new card gets in, I'll be able to launch lots of products and lots of ads right away

    Worse case scenario I use the money I made from that product to buy an ad account

    Hey Maki Stoi!

    i believe when you started this journey, you said that once any of your product run out of business and you move on to a new product, you will share that old product here. So let us [followers] see what was the first product that did make you money? I won't ask for the second one that you moved onto, but feel free to share that with us, if your 'rules' allow you. Ofcourse, i wont (yet) ask about your current product out of due respect.
