    I would not do that if i was you. Can you tell me the store url and daily traffic budget? I will take a look and give you my thoughts?

    Thanks for sharing. It's a good twist since interested people would always claim a "free product". Asking for a shipment fee would be reasonable since that's what free trial products also do.
    The difference that I see here is that, the item is offered FREE, just to hook them up on your email list. Trial products are also FREE but would automatically deduct on a monthly basis if the customer doesn't unsubscribe. But here, you're only getting their email.

    I think fb bot messenger would also be good on this one since most people are regularly checking fb than emails. Not sure.

    But for those customers who opted in and decide to claim and pay for the shipping fees, you could just send another message about a new free product or a related item at a discounted price(saying that it's "exclusively discounted" for them because they are a previous customer).

    My idea is to even show them two different links on that message: one, that indicates "this is your discounted link" with countdown time for validity - that routes to a discounted price item from your website. And the 2nd link which says, "you may also check the item here at its original price" which also routes to the website with the higher price. Or a custom promo code would also do this.

    Another funnel is to let that person know that if he can refer two other people to GET the 1st free product, he can "automatically get" the 2nd product for FREE(now on a much lesser price compared to the discounted one - saying that it's for shipping fees only).

    Anyways, I'm so interested in diving with dropshipping but tbh I haven't started yet. Ideas keeps popping out on my head with the help of these guides, but I'm not just that confident yet that my knowledge is enough to dip my toes in. I just really wanted to know the backbone and actual steps before starting, which I haven't found yet.

    Cheers @GringoMonkey and thank you for this guide.

    I tried free + shipping a while back. It didnt work for me but then again it was my first ever Shopify store and I knew literally nothing about ecom back then. This is a nice twist and Im sure its very profitable. Nice share OP.

    i would have gone full in with dropshipping if the delivery times were better. Some of those 2-3 week waits are insane(especially in the age where most delivery is 1-2 days). I know a guy who sold alot and then got alot of charge backs after their products weren't delivered in the following 2 weeks.

    I might jump back in it though.

    Ok cool but how would you target for a subniche like this? They like wolves and jewelry? I see how this can work but the targeting part of it for the facebook ad seems convoluted.

    There's really no easy way around this. It's a business. Whether you find a way or not. For this specific niche..I guess there are plenty of werewolf/vampire fantasy forums around :D Easy to sell to people who are crazy about something specific.

    Also, I would like to add that it's actually a great place to start.
    Begin by looking for forums where people are literally obsessed with something. Continue by finding products that might interest them etc.
