What is Dropshipping?
The concept of drop shipping is not new, in fact it is widely regarded as one of the most popular ways to start a successful online business. When you partner with us, you’ll have access to thousands of products without the hassle of storing any physical stock or having to ship a single order. Instead, when you sell a product, you simply purchase the product from our website at a discounted price and have it shipped directly to your customer, 100% hassle free! As a result, you’ll never see or handle a single product.
How to Start a Dropshipping Business?
If you’ve been considering starting your own dropshipping business, you’ll be glad to hear that we’ve made it incredibly simple. In fact, we’ve already written a wealth of information to help you get started. First you’ll need to set up your own eBay, Amazon, Shopify (or any other) marketplace account if you haven’t already got one, since you’ll need a place to sell the products. Once you’ve done that, simply pick products from our website and add them to your own Store, and that’s it! And, if you’re not yet sure what type of products to sell, dive into our storefront and starting browsing through the massive selection of products that will become available to you as soon as you join!
Do I Need to Register as a Business to Dropship?
You’ll need to register your business once you start to make sales, but there’s no immediate rush to do so until you start making sales consistently.
Is this Dropshipping Program Free?
Yes! 100% Free. There is currently no cost to register for our Dropshipping Program (aka The Official Merchant Programme).
Is this Dropshipping Program Available in My Country?
Yes! You can sell with our Dropshipping Program from any country in the world. When you’re running a drop shipping business, your geographical location is irrelevant since you won’t need to worry about holding any physical stock.
Can I Sell Products through My Own Website?
Yes! You can add and sell our products via your own website regardless of what platform you use.
How Much Money Do I Need to Start Dropshipping with this Dropshipping Program?
One of the best things about starting a dropshipping business with us is that it requires virtually no funding whatsoever. However, it’s important that you take into consideration all the expenses which may incur when you start making sales such as eBay, Amazon and/or other marketplace listing and/or selling fees. For more information on fees, simply refer to the help and information section of your preferred marketplace. It’s worth however noting that it’s considerably less expensive to start a dropshipping business than it is to start a conventional online business. This is because you won’t need to source products, ever, or worry about shipping them, which is why dropshipping is one of the best ways to run your own online business.
What Profit Margins Can I Expect?
The answer to this question simply depends on the types of products you sell. If you’re selling cheaper products, you may find success by marking them up as much as 4-5 times the price they’ll cost you to buy from us. However, we don’t recommend this for the more expensive products since it’ll make them more difficult to sell, unless you know what you’re doing already of course. Of course, we recommend that you set your prices at least twice the price that you expect to pay for the product itself as this will help you to generate a profit whilst covering your selling expenses. Another tip is to check the prices that your competitors have set for similar products. You can use this as your benchmark.
How Many Products Should I Add to My Store?
We recommend that you add at least 100 Products (at the very minimum) to your store to begin with. However, you’re free to add as many (or as few) products as you so wish!
Can I Use Product Pictures from the Website?
Yes! As an registered partner with our Dropshipping Program you’ll have exclusive access to use our product imagery with full permission, also meaning that, any Non-partner Seller or Business cannot use our product imagery without our prior permission at anytime. We encourage you to notify us if you believe somebody is using our product images without our permission.
How Long Does it take to Make the First Sale?
The length of time it takes to make your first sale mostly depends on you. You can get your first sale on your first day, after a month, or after a year. It mostly boils down to your clever product selection, pricing and ultimately the amount of effort you put in into adding products to your store. It’s a numbers game in this business which means the more products you add, the more you’ll sell.
Can I Use My Address on the Shipped Packages?
Unfortunately, due to customs regulations we have to add our own returns address onto every package that we ship.
How Long Does it take for My Customers Order to Arrive?
This varies of course depending on the geographical location of your customer and the shipping method selected by you at checkout. All orders are shipped by us directly from within the UK. We aim to deliver every order within 1-3 Business Days (within United Kingdom), and 7-21 Business Days Worldwide.
If a Customer Orders More than One Product, Will they arrive Separately?
Absolutely not! Unlike most dropshipping business and programs, we stock every single product you see on our website and all orders are shipped by us directly from within the UK. Because of this, we can offer combined shipping discounts any guarantee that any multiple item orders are always sent within the same package.
Why Would Somebody Buy from My Store instead of Buying from You Directly?
It’s Simple and proven, they just do! There are no rules surrounding how, where or for what price you can list your items for sale. You are free to list products anywhere online. There are no minimum or maximum prices to follow and we will not compete with you. We will not change our business model based on anything that you do.
