    I ran my store two days again and spent about $40 on ads so far.
    My page is at 120 likes and my ad is getting likes as well (27)
    But I have not gotten a single sale.
    I realize my website is not the best, I would like tips to help me get started.

    I put in my checkout: "I acknowledge that I need to allow 2-3 weeks for my item(s) to arrive"
    because I am dropshipping from ali.
    Two of my products are from eBay though.

    anything would be helpful at this point.
    I am using shopify and my own website
    you can take a look here

    Those 40$ were poorly invested.

    Your website looks amateurish and poor. There is no way in hell you're gonna get a conversion with that and it's not something fixable with 1 or 2 tips. You need to take a look at actual stores and try to build something that resembles them the best you can. There are wordpress themes and plugins out there which can easily give your store a professional look.

    Ask yourself this question: Would I buy from this website? I would close the browser as soon as I landed on that page. Spend some time on redesigning the site and you'll get sales for sure!

    Should I use fiverr and let someone design it?
    I am new at website related stuff, so I don't have much experience.

    In all honesty buddy, there is nothing about your website that makes me want to buy from it. Your website is extremely thin as there is no content on it whatsoever or even a logo. You also only have 5 products and your website doesn't look like it belongs to a real business. It looks like it has been set up in a couple of hours to make a few quick bucks. Not to be harsh on you, but, if you want some criticism you need to change and add a lot of things.

    You say that you don't have much experience in website related stuff but you do seem to have some sort of a budget available at your disposal. Invest in some articles to beef up your website and add some more products so that it looks like a legitimate business. Look at competitors websites in your niche for examples of what you should aim for. Pokemon Go is hot shit at the moment so if you make the right changes you may make some money.

    Fiverr designs are just re-hashed templates.

    Get a professional web development team/designer to make a website. It isn't cheap, but it's worth it.

    Like the others have said, this looks more like a shitty web 2.0 than a proper eCommerce site.

    You're going to want branding (of some kind, so a logo, typography, template etc.), you need more content, etc.

    To be honest, there's a lot of problems with your store. I'd recommend doing what others have recommended, and look at some successful stores to see how they do it. Then emulate.

    Fresh up that site, create some emotion, add more products, add crosselling, and drive traffic. A ton of traffic and then double the traffic.
    I know enough stores that have a conversion rate around 3%. So it's all about the numbers and looking trustfull.

    20$ shipping wtf. Your most expensive item is 20$ for a shirt, and you're asking the same for shipping.
    For the 3 other items it's the double of the price. At least for international shipping.

    US seems free, maybe you wana check your traffic comes from the US.
