    I see people boast their earnings...one month earning not bad ..than towards just 2 , 3 months is amazing...so much sales.

    I wonder what niches they selling , Can't be just one shop?

    next how it work ....it seem a bit complicate like must find goods to sell?

    To build a successful Shopify business, you need to find a good products provider that does drop-shipping, add those products to your Shopify store, then promote it via FB Ads, Bing, Adwords. Choose products that target younger people, like gadgets and accessories and make sure you don't spend all your advertising budget in the first day. Test things first. Hope this helps!

    Cheers!

    That's actually a very good niche. Some big drop-shipping sites from China, have over 7500 products related to "fitness equipment".

    What don't you understand about dropshipping? When someone goes to your shopify site and buys something they will leave there name and address then you go to a supplier (eg Amazon/ebay/aliexpress) and buy them the item with there name and address, whilst making a profit on it obviously.

    You use your card details such as name and address to pay but you use your customers name and address for shipping.

    Did you also read the fail stories?

    There are more fail stories than success stories and even though there are many fail stories on BHW there are even more you will never hear from ever again.

    I can tell you right now, for most it is hard work!

    Those success stories rarely tell the problems they had to overcome to reach a point of success maybe 0,1% had the luck to find something to make it big but it's like the lottery, you need to have luck!

    Running a shopify shop is as hard and maybe even harder than a psychical shop. The big difference with a psychical shop is that you have a digital shop but you still need to work hard to be a success.

    You still need to deal with taxes, you still need to deal with customers, marketing, a strong brand name and logo, payment gateways, updating social media etc etc those are only a few things.

    For example: Did you know there is a chance that PayPal will freeze your funds for 21 days for the first 60 days if you can't provide proper tracking which is possible when you dropship from AE so that means you will need to have a CC and front the money.

    Also, if you are not dropshipping through Ebay, you will need to register a business because most payment gateways ask for a VAT number, when I installed a BC gateway that is supposed to be designed for privacy I still had to provide them a VAT number to release the restrictions.

    The advice I will give to you.

    Don't jump into something unprepared because you read a success story about anything. Everything in here is marketing, even some of the success stories. If you found a IM method you want to try so in your case dropshipping, don't be impulsive after a success story, I already did all those mistakes for you. :D

    There is plenty material about anything everywhere. Even on BHW alone there is much to read.

    If you thinking about AE, I shared a free video course about dropshipping through AE here https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/g...-course-be-fast-to-be-sure-you-get-it.926954/ and @MedKing his upload Shopify Domination https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/g...-course-be-fast-to-be-sure-you-get-it.926954/ will get you started.

    And there is much more, make notes, calculate how much money you need to start and make a start!

    I use a custom woocomerce template and buy like 150+ surface pro 3's on credit to get a 23%++ discount on price with free shipping (shipping was like 11% of additional savings in my case). This find cheap chinese accessory products is garbage. You need to find ways to get real trending products at margins where you can sell online, discount the price when you want to, then make money from it.

    Yes. I agreed with billy. The key to success is hard work and focus.

    There is a lot of ways to make money here.

    If you do something, just all out until you can make it run automatically. Then you can focus on next project.

    I do sell something on shopify. Its fun but i have problem getting payment. And i dont have enough money to pay supplier first before i can get the tracking. Until now still finding new solutions.

    Currently and this is my flaw, I am doing a dozen projects at the same time :D I blame mostly my ADD but this works for me as my brain works very fast and I can get bored very fast sometimes.

    I just finished my second dropship website that is working through AE, the first one I made 14 years ago when things were a LOT different!

    I'm testing and promoting several CPA offers all over the place.

    Designing a bunch of landing page for my niches.

    Between that I am in a constant learning state of mind, only recently started using vps and vps hosting and I like to do everything myself so as it's new have to learn all kinds of new things.

    SEO have evolved a lot since I was on the internet and never paid many attention to it as back in the days it was pretty easy to rank so SEO is my weakness and learning about it every day.

    While doing all that I'm also growing a dozen accounts on FB,TW,IG,PT and couple other websites.

    Ow yeah I forgot, I'm also a freelance web designer so also working on a couple projects for clients.

    So current status: No life and 18 hours a day on the internet :( but at least I'm free and doing what I enjoy best!

    Shopify domination is actually a pretty good course, use a couple of the Facebook Ad guides on here to drive traffic. Use a specific niche and put a twist on it, you will make good sales.

    I have to say if you want to invest in shopify, in my opinion you should buy a premium theme or create your own, cause I think the standart themes are not good for conversions.
    Personaly I use wordpress and woocommerce, because it is much more friendly for building and designing your own themes and plugins.

    I see a lot of people starting there dropshipping business, but they dont even care about the niche and the look of there shop.

    The design is the first impression a customer sees and thats a big point for your conversions.

    If you really want to start a project like this, it is possible and you can earn money from it maybe not 50000$ a month, but when you focuse on one specific niche you can earn even if its only about 300$ profit a month.

    Give it a try but research before.
    Good luck bro
