    So I'm getting into drop shipping. More specifically I want to drop ship from Ali express through Shopify and then onto facebook etc. Shopify offers a 9 dollar option where you setup your storefront on facebook and then, of course, they offer their first tier option at 29 bucks a month. I'm wondering is it even worth considering the 9 dollar a month option? If I'm just drop shipping 2-3 items (maybe adding more to flesh out the site's credibility) does it matter if my storefront is directly on facebook or would it just simply be better to have a full store built with Shopify?

    Obviously, the full shop front option is much better when I want to expand but I can always add it later by adding a channel to my Shopify account. (I get the feeling though that If I have my storefront through facebook at first I am stacking the deck against me credibility wise and I obviously won't have nearly the amount of customization that a full Shopify store offers.)

    Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks.

    It depends, what kind of stuff do you want to sell? Normally I always recommend a full shop. If you don't have the 29 a month you will be having hard times sustaining a business anyway.

    haven't decided on the niche yet. Yeah, think I'm just going to get the full shop up front. Makes it easier to earn the customer's trust.
