    Hello together,

    I am relativly new here, just read till now. I want to start with Dropshipping via Aliexpress and Shopify and I have some questions.

    I live in Germany and it's propably hard to find only german customers. Further the german policies are much harder than in the US (or even not in europe). So I think I have to start an english shop for my products. What have or can I write in the imprint?
    Another advantage is the payment option. In germany it's only possible to pay via paypal (?).

    Related to my niche I want to setup a shop with 4 Categories with 7-8 products. Important is the theme. I have no Banners or a camera/models to make great banners. How do you deal with it?

    To get clicks and sales I want to start marketing via Instagram/Facebook/Ads.
    I have got 4 Instagram Accounts which are growing daily using FollowLiker. Two of them are relevant to my niche.
    In facebook I want to join groups relating to my niche and post there my website with an bonus code or something like this.
    Further I want to start Facebook Ads. How much do you think I have to spent for the first time?
    Google Ads and Linkbuilding. Same Question. How much and how often? For the linkbuilding issue: I have generated threads in forum which can be edited with links to my shop.

    In principle I have enough money to start but I don't want to through away the money. If I have made the first successful sales I would spent more.

    Thank you for answering my questions. Looking forward to start business.

    Best Regards.

    You'd need roughly 500 unique visitors to get your first sale.

    In order to get a consistent supply of 500 hits a month an amount of 15,000 followers is necessary.

    Why can you only use PayPal? I've found that having a credit card option increases conversions. Check out stripe if you can't use the cc processor on shopify.
