    Im not using aliexpress, i dont like their shipping times and shoddy customer service and quality.

    I picked a specific niche and im going to be adding roughly 20 products in the niche that are brand name aiming for about a 35%-45% profit margin per sale. Lets see if it can be done. I may need to lower my margins but im starting high.

    Based on the products im picking if i see 1 item a day at about $30 Profit that will be about a $1000 a month which is about what id make at a $12 an hour job working part time.

    If this is sucessfull i will be creating many more stores. Dont ask me any basic questions like how to promote, or how do i make a shopify store, Do your own research. I am willing to help though with other topics though.

    I have a instagram account in the car niche, the shopify store isnt about cares at all but it is something guys like so im hoping my demographics do well.

    I will also be buying shoutouts in the future. IM currently working on my store still hope to have it up by tomorrow.

    My grand goal is to make $100 a day profit consistently for a whole month straight then flip the site between 6-12 times the monthly profit it is making on flippa.

    If i dont sell 1 product with paid shoutouts in 2 days i will reprice the margins and if that doesnt work i will give up on the shopify niche but not the thread.


    I will try to do daily updates.

    Why do you buy at Walmart instead of Target?

    Arent you afraid that when people see the amazon packaging they might go on amazon and see that the item is cheaper then ask for a refund?

    Yes, client may compare prices, and you need promotion costs, right?

    Not really that's not how business works, do you due diligence. Best Buy's prices vary from Walmart and amazons and targets and meijers.

    You can't just get a refund because of the price you can ask but more than likely they won't issue you a refund. Excuse of that.

    People are over thinking this too much. z what's easier to sell shitty unbranded products son aliexpress or brand name products that are easier to return if there is an issue with quick free shipping.


    I've tried the aliexpress experiment with 0 luck. It's so hard to sell a product hat has no brand name that has tons of competition prime example is the hoverbaords and fidget spinners.


    If you know how to look on Amazon some of the stuff is already damn near wholesale pricing.

    That's right on a certain extend, but you don't go to walmart and get something packaged by target at a higher price.

    You might encounter problems when people get their stuff on amazon boxes.

    When you buy an item it is because you want the product and you can afford the price.

    Now if someone buys a item from my store you really think they will raise hell when they receive the item they wanted and at the price they agreed with.

    Y'all are really overthinking this. So since my idea sucks what's yours? Where can I get brand name merchandise?

    Someone is really going to raise hell accorodng to you because of he box it came in.

    If someone really has a problem I will tell them Amazon fulfills my orders on my behalf.... problem solved this is why people aren't successful because people are to scared worrying about hypotheticals that may never occur.

    If people are bitching about service that means your business isn't successful because the only way people will bitch is if they are your customers and if you don't have customers you ain't making money.

    So the more complaints I get that just means more money I gotta be making.

    So let me just dropship generic cheap dollar store sunglasses from aliexpress and see how that goes I wouldn't even know how to market that.

    Props to people that are successful wih aliexpress, I've attempted it several times with several different niches and promotion methods and in the end really just broke even every time... it's not worth my time.

    Update #3

    Still waiting for my logo to be made. I did manage to build a Instagram and Facebook account. I'm following unfollowing to gain followers. Once my site is up and active I'm going to see how much traffic I can drive that's free.

    If I don't get substantial amount of visitors then I'm going pay for some shoutouts.

    Does anyone know how many visitors I can expect from a Instagram shoutout that gets about 5k likes?

    Update #4 There probable wont be too much action until i get my logo made and get a little bit of a presense on social media. I figure promoting it free for the first week or 2 then i will start buying shoutouts.
