Welcome to today’s GSD Daily. What we’re going to talk about today is how to sell online without inventory. How to sell physical products online without inventory. Lots of ways to sell things online without inventory, digital products, coaching, and consulting. Most of our channel is dedicated to all that stuff.
Today, we’re going to talk about specifically dropshipping. Dropshipping is, it’s kind of like what it sounds. You don’t accept inventory. Somebody buys something online and then it gets shipped from the manufacturer directly to your customer, bypassing you. You get to keep all of the excess profit.
We love dropshipping because it allows you to test multiple products without risking anything. You just get to throw them up on your store, and if they sell, then the supplier sends them directly, or some warehouse somewhere, sends them directly to your customer. If they don’t work, you can just delete them and move on. It is a beautiful setup.
One of the drawbacks is that because it is easy, you’ll pay a little more for the products. Somebody else is importing it, warehousing it, managing it, shipping it, and all of that stuff. You are going to pay extra than if you imported it, put a hundred of them on a shelf, and then packed and shipped them yourself. There is a cost to the ease of use, but at the end of the day, it’s still money that you’re not necessarily doing anything for other than having the e-com website and the advertising. Dropshipping is a great way to start a business without inventory, to start selling stuff online without inventory.
Now, I’m going to show you a couple of tools and plugins that you can use to start your dropshipping business like now, this afternoon.
The first one I want to talk about is a client of ours, DropShipMax. DropShipMax is the only, I don’t want to say only, other people do offer DoneForYou e-com stores. DropShipMax offers the best DoneForYou e-com stores that I’ve seen. They are in the UK and launching in the US in the next couple of months. Keep on the lookout for this. This is done for you as it gets. You call them up, you do business with them, and they build you a store, and the products are already curated for you. You don’t even have to do any of that stuff. They build it all for you.
We’re going to talk about a few WordPress plugins. The next one is WooDropship. WooDropship allows you to start and scale your AliExpress dropshipping business. AliExpress is, it’s Chinese version. You type into Google and AliExpress. It’s Chinese, so the products come from China. They were very cheap. It just takes longer to ship. This particular plugin ties right into the AliExpress API engine, so that your products get sourced from China. The shipping usually takes a little bit longer than, well, quite a bit longer than if you were to buy something from Amazon.
But the competitive pricing. It’s not that customers accept it, but they know that if they want something for super cheap, it’s going to take a little longer to get to them.
The next one is Dropship. me. Again, this is another WordPress plugin. They have over 50,000 best-selling dropshipping products that you’re able to start testing with. You log in, you install the plugin, and you’re able to pick from those 50,000 dropshipping products, and not have to worry about any sourcing hassle, inventory, or any of that other stuff. You can start selling them immediately.
Then we have an Amazon shop. It’s AmaderCode.com. You can see it on the screen, but basically, this is an Amazon shop. It will start allowing you to drop ship and be an affiliate for Amazon products. It also allows you to import Amazon products to your store pretty automatically.
Then we have a plug-in that I love, Zendrop. Zendrop is a Shopify integration, and also a WooCommerce WordPress integration too. This is probably one of the better-known Shopify dropshipping companies, and they have lots and lots and lots of products that you’re able to start using for Zendrop.
This is the one that I would start with if you’re new, either on WordPress or Shopify. For sure, I would begin with Zendrop. They have the largest selection of products, as well as the best dropshipping prices. When you start to move inventory, they can even customize stuff for you on one of their premium programs.
We have Printful, which is another Shopify integration, and it ties in so you can create custom merch. Over on the right-hand side here, this hoodie and the bag, you can actually put your logo on that stuff, sell it through your Shopify store, and then when an order comes in, then Printful will print it and ship it to you.
It’s an excellent service. We used to use it a little bit for the GSD stuff. Early on, there was one shirt that I had to send back three or four times because they just couldn’t get it right, not even send it back. They just sent me a new one. They kept printing stuff in weird places, but it is an excellent service and they do prints and canvas and bags and hoodies and all that stuff. The stuff is good. It’s pretty well-qualified. The screen printing is a little like bait, but now we do some screen printing, so it’s compared to what we can do manually. But Printful is a pretty cool service.
That’s going to get you started on dropship products, on being able to sell stuff online without having to purchase inventory.
