    hey bhw,

    ok so i have launched my first shopify account and have opened a store with a profitable niche and i have a twitter page with plenty of people who want to buy products from me, but i want to sell them products i see on amazon, like a dropshipping method. what im trying to figure out is, is there a way i can directly link my shopify account to amazon to where i can post amazon products in my shop and everytime someone purchases a product amazon gets notified and ships it to them directly? thanks for any help in advance.

    Why don't you use aliexpress to dropship. Most likely the product you see on Amazon can be purchased of aliexpress for cheaper. You can even get 10-15 days shipping for a few dollars. It's called epacket. Not all aliexpress listings have epacket shipping. You can download Chrome extension oberlo (free) to show which products have epacket. I have just started my shopify. I'm getting 5% ctr. And 8 cents a click. Good luck wih It your journey!

    i might use aliexpress for some things, but what i wanted to sell i saw it was cheaper on amazon than it was on aliexpress. so i need to find a way to automate orders with amazon.

    Just a tip. Find multiple suppliers. I had started my ads. In the meantime my supplier either ran out of stock or stopped selling. So make sure to find multiple ones

    Hey, thanks for your input on shopify+fb ads stuff. I am about to launch a FB ads for my newly made shopify site too. I was wondering how long you are doing it and if you are seeing any good profits now.

    Thanks.

    I started a few days ago. I had a five percent conversion rate. I wasnt targeting right people so I changed it up a bit and got around 2%. I had 2 simular ads. Problem is people are clicking but aren't buying. I believe I chose a bad product. The product looks really cool and attractive but it's not too practicle. So I'm going to test out 2 more ads. If It doesn't work I will switch to new product. I've only spent around $10 so far on ads. My product costs 10$. I'm selling for $40.
