Now buy a domain for your store. This should be something representative of your brand. For instance, if you’re looking to sell clothing through dropshipping then it could be something online-clothing.com or it could be party-dress-US.com.
Choose your domain with care. It is hard to move the domain once you’ve got it.
Step 3 – Build your Website
Now you need to build your website. There are lots of dropshipping themes that you can use on Shopify. Choose your theme with care. There are many things to consider, like whether or not the theme matches your branding or it has the features you need to be a success.
Step 4 – Customize your Website
Now you need to customize your website’s theme. This should include you changing the text, images, colors, videos and more on the website. This can take several days to do.
There might also be the need to add apps to your website to make it more functional. Be sure to include the apps that you really need as many apps to cost. One app you should really include is Oberlo, this is a great, free Dropshipping app that you can connect to your website.
Step 5 – Choose Products
Now you can choose the products that you want to have on your website. Look at Oberlo and the products available through the AliExpress website. You want to choose products that offer you a good profit margin, sell well and have a good reputation. If customers have ranked a product between 4.2 and 4.5, then it is an ideal product. Customers trust this rating more so than those lower or higher.
Once you’ve chosen your products, you can bulk upload them to your website. This takes moments to do when you’re using one of the dropshipping apps that are available.
When a customer makes an order, the apps should be able to place the orders with the merchants for you. All you need to do is click a button to authorize the process. This can be done once a day and all the orders can be sent off at the same time.
Step 6 – Market
Now you can market your new store. Without marketing, no one will discover your store. Try to have good SEO on your website. The better your website’s SEO, the more traffic that you will get. And this will lead to more sales.
