***COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS***

Question: I can’t understand your accent. Are you speaking English? Where are you from?

Answer: Yes, I am speaking english! I am from New Zealand. Because my accent can be difficult to understand (and also because we want this video to be accessible to people that can only read English, and to be respectful to the deaf community) we include captions on our videos including this one. Simply click the CC button to have captions turned on so you can read along with the video.

Question: I can’t get Chrome! Can I not use Oberlo?

Answer: There is a work-around using the Oberlo app. Watch my last year’s video to see how else you can use it to add products to your store: https://youtu.be/IakKkA_DWdQ?t=12m15s

Question: Which version of Shopify should I purchase?

Answer: For most people, the normal $29/month plan (Shopify Basic) is great. The additional features of the more expensive $79/month plan (Shopify) are good once you start earning $5,000+ a month. You can upgrade to it later as your store makes money.

Question: Does this work if you live outside of the USA?

Answer: Yes, it does! As I said, I am from New Zealand. I understand that a lot of tutorials are designed around USA citizens and that can be frustrating. Don’t let the fact that you live outside the USA stop you from building a dropshipping business!

Inside our membership, The Dropship Club, we go deeper into some of the challenges that non-USA dropshippers face and give you practical, step-by-step solutions on how to overcome them.

Question: Will customers really wait this long (2-4 weeks) to receive their items?

Answer: Yes, they will – if you warn them in-advance. It is good to add it to your product description and bold it. In a real dropshipping store, this is what I would do. We have a video which explains this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBuiN-CVxE4

Question: Won’t customers go to Aliexpress/Amazon.com and purchase the items I’m selling and purchase from there since it is cheaper/faster?

Answer: This is where marketing is key. When creating your product page copy, make sure that it looks the potential customer immediately. That is also why it’s key to be careful about how you choose your Facebook targeting, and be careful about which Instagram influencers you choose to work with for your shoutouts. You want to make sure that you’re advertising to an audience that is super-targeted for the product you are selling, so that when they see it, they get so excited that the buy it then-and-there as an impulse purchase.

This is something that we also discuss in the video, Why Long Shipping Times Don’t Matter.

Question: Do you have any recommendations for marketing stores?

Answer: Yes. My preference is with Facebook ads. Some other great methods are Instagram Influencers & SEO. That is only the beginning though. There are plenty of other ways to advertise stores (including Google ads, building Facebook fan pages etc). I recommend picking one and focusing on it as a beginner.

    I’ve always wanted to make a lot of cash without occupying plenty of my own time so I gave several approaches a go. Luckily, my close friend told me about “Sοdοva dkv” (Google it). Try browsing it on Google. Every day, my normal earnings is 100 bucks. I strongly suggest it.. .

    I was wondering, if you add your (personal) paypal, will people see your name when they pay? Or would it be better to create a new paypal account?

    Brilliant, video! just wondering if you need to have a legal business entity i.e. a limited company set up before launching your dropshipping store? Does the debit/credit card you use need to be associated with that business entity?

    Or could you use a personal debit card and then switch over to a business card if your store took off and started being successful?

    Thanks for sharing this video. I can't pay monthly fees for shopify apps. I used Nopsbit shopify theme for my store. This theme includes all of the apps, providing a free service for apps. So, there is no need to pay monthly fees.

    Hi, I thought you don't need any money when you are dropshipping but your video says Aliexpress will charge you thought your credit card so you have to pay Aliexpress first and then you can dropship to your Shopify store .so in other words, you are buying but you don't know if you will sell. is this right?

    Wait… I’m confused 😐 are you supposed to have AliExpress installed in your Shopify store or do you just go to the Ali website and with the Oberlo Chrome extension it automatically adds the products ?

    Waoh! Woah! Waoh! Ted, I lack words to thank you enough for this video! Waoh you killed it. This video alone will take an absolute novice to a pro. Thank you so much for this lovely inspiration. Much appreciated. Most of the paid courses out there do not even worth half of this informative content. I am loving this!
