Overview of Meowgicians

The first dropshipping store example is called Meowgicians, and it's operating in the pet niche!

The best thing about this dropshipping store is that it has such a refreshing and playful design.

It doesn't look like most other pet stores!

Meowgicians uses the DSers dropshipping app, which allows them to sell pet products like the 'Little penguin' cat sleeping bed, which we also found on AliExpress:

MaxPush is a great example of a one-product store that is taken to the next level in terms of product and design.

This online store from Newark, US sells quite a popular dropshipping product, the workout board, but they've private labeled it and designed an entire store around it!

Let's discuss why this store is great to look at for inspiration (especially if you're also building a one-product store):

  • They're focused on what's working now. Advertising on TikTok is the main marketing strategy for many successful stores right now.

    Besides making videos themselves, many other creators are showcasing the product. The keyword 'max pushup board' alone has over 44 million views!

  • Lots (Yes, LOTS) of social proof. We could've listed a number of other things, but one thing that really stands out on this store is the amount of social proof they show.

    There's some kind of social proof on every section of their homepage, from Facebook testimonials to a 'Featured on' section!

Overview of The Peaky Hat

The following US dropshipping store example is called The Peaky Hat.

Any guesses on what products they sell?

That's right, the caps you see in the popular series 'The Peaky Blinders!'

It's quite a fun and unique niche, right?

Here are the same products sold on AliExpress:

Product nameThe Peaky Dudley Cap

$17.41

Profit margin56.4%

Let's check out some things you can learn from this store:

  • Niche selection. We think this is (at least, it was) a great niche for a dropshipping store. The interest in the Peaky Blinders series peaked in March 2022, so this store could probably profit quite a bit from it!
Interest in peaky blinders on Google Trends
  • Product images could be better. Overall, the design of The Peaky Hat looks great, and it definitely fits with the 'old-fashioned' style of the products.

    However, we think it could look much better if the white background of the product images were removed:

This is going to be an interesting one.

Do you know why?

Sage & Sill doesn't look like a typical dropshipping store. But in reality, it is one!

Again, let's check out one of their products. In this case, this little human ceramic planter:

  • Great profit margins. Since the products sold on Novus Decor have a high perceived value, they can sell them for quite a high price compared to what it costs to buy them through AliExpress!
  • A fitting theme. Novus Decor uses the Prestige theme. Prestige is a theme designed to give your store a high-end and prestigious look, and it perfectly fits Novus Decor's products and style!

Strate Fuel is another special example!

When looking at this store, you wouldn't think they're dropshipping, right?

After all, they're selling supplements and have their own private-labeled package.

Well, it's still a dropshipping store!

So, how do they do it?

Strate Fuel uses a private label dropshipping supplier called Supliful (check out our review of Supliful here).

In Supliful's catalog, you will find 50+ high-quality, FDA-compliant supplements with scientifically proven health benefits.

The founder of Strate Fuel has Supliful installed on their Shopify store and even left a review for it:

So, what makes this store so successful? Let's check out some interesting things about it:

  • Focused on benefits. It's always great to focus on the benefits when writing your product description (instead of the features). Those are the real reasons why people are buying your product!

  • Knowledge center. This is something we don't see often on dropshipping stores, but it can be great if you have the knowledge and it fits with your store; selling digital products.

    The founder of Strate Fuel developed four Strate Knowledge documents, in which he put all his cycling knowledge others can learn from:

Here are two things that this store excels at:

  • The store design fits with the product. Especially the dark background! Think about it, when would you use a sunset lamp? In the dark, right?

    That's why it's great that Vivyd Lights uses a dark background, so the sunset projection images look even better:

  • Bundle upselling. Vivyd Lights offers a discounted bundle set for people who want to purchase multiple lamps. It's a great strategy to increase your average order value!

As you can see, the difference between product cost and selling price is over $700, which is an amazing benefit that comes with running a high-ticket dropshipping store.

Here are some other things you can learn from this store:

  • YouTube product review. ACTbikes adds a YouTube video on their product page that reviews their e-bike. It helps visitors get a better feel for the bike's appearance, which is great (especially for a high-ticket product).

  • Keep your customers happy. While ACTbikes can be inspiring design- and product-wise, their customer service seems bad. We always advise putting your customers first; you can learn more about providing excellent customer service in this article!

Disclaimer: Cultured West likely buys this basket close to the source from Bangladesh artisans. They mention this on their product page.

Besides Spocket, Cultured West was also using the supplier DropCommerce at one point, but we couldn't verify if it's still installed on their Shopify store.

So, let's move to the learning points!

  • Donations to charity. For every sale, Cultured West donates $1.00 to support the artisan and maker economy:

  • A phone number is available for support. If you can, adding a phone number is always great to offer your customers that little bit of extra support!
