Do you know the best way to get inspiration for your dropshipping store in 2024?

Yes! Looking at awesome dropshipping store examples. This way, you will find a lot of "that looks great" or "I want something like that!"

This could be anything from design, products, or even their pricing. Just don't copy everything.

Awesome Shopify Dropshipping Store Examples

Let's begin!

What is dropshipping, and why do people do it?

Let’s start by understanding what starting a dropshipping business means.

If you already understand it, then you can click here to scroll down to the first dropshipping store example!

If not, I will explain it really simply to you:

  1. You've got an online store where you sell products, but you don’t have any of these products in storage or in your house.
  2. When someone places an order on your dropshipping store, you place that same order directly with your supplier. Don’t worry. There are a lot of apps out there that help you with automating this. For example, DSers, or these 14 DSers alternatives.
  3. Then, your dropshipping supplier will handle the rest. Think about preparing the package and sending the order straight to your customer.
  4. Now your customer will receive the package straight from your dropshipping supplier, and you never touched the product in between!

To make it even more clear, here is an infographic of ours that does a great job of explaining the concept of dropshipping:

The dropship model - Infographic

The most common question people have now is: won’t my customer know that the package didn’t come from me?

No.

For example, aren’t there any advertisements or recipes from the supplier in the package?

You just need to make sure that your supplier accepts dropshipping and blind dropshipping.

DSers custom note

You can learn more about blind dropshipping by reading this article here.

Alright, but why are people interested in dropshipping? And why do people want to dropship?

Most people that are researching dropshipping and want to start/are running a dropshipping store do this for one or more of these reasons:

  • Earning more money. If done right, dropshipping could earn you a lot. Just take a look at these success stories.
  • Being their own boss. Some people don’t like to work for a boss, so they search for other income sources.
  • Location-independent work. A dropshipping store can be run from just about anywhere with an internet connection. As long as you can communicate with suppliers and customers easily, you can run and manage your business. This is also called being a Digital Nomad.

If you’re interested in learning more about dropshipping, then I suggest reading this article written by me:

Dropshipping for Beginners: What Is It & How to Start Today?

Why is looking at dropshipping store examples important?

learn why looking at dropshipping store examples is important

One word? Inspiration!

This is great if you're just starting and have no idea how your dropshipping store is supposed to look.

You can learn a lot from dropshipping stores that are getting a lot of traffic. Definitely from those that are still advertising at this moment.

Do you know why?

Well, would anyone still advertise their store that's been up for a while if they are not profitable?

Exactly... No!

Also, if you are interested in learning how to create a unique dropshipping store, then I suggest reading this article here!

The list of 23 Shopify dropshipping store examples

So, are you ready for some dropshipping store examples?

Below you will find a whole list of examples! But don't worry, I won't just post a few links to some stores and call it a day.

We'll give you some things to look at for every dropshipping store on the list.

You will surely get a lot of inspiration for your dropshipping store.

Important reminder: These examples are intended to inspire creativity and innovation in building your own brand.

While it can be helpful to learn from successful businesses, it is essential to avoid simply copying their strategies and ideas. Instead, strive to create a unique brand that sets your business apart and resonates with your target audience.

Let's go!

1. Inspire Uplift

Niche: General

Shopify dropshipping store examples: Inspire Uplift

Inspire Uplift Update: Inspire Uplift switched from Shopify to Magento, but they are still a great dropshipping store to get inspiration from!

Inspire Uplift is a great example of a general dropshipping store. They have been in business for a long time! Plus, they are getting a ton of traffic each month.

Just take a look at this screenshot from SimilarWeb:

Traffic from Inspire Uplift

Some things you can look at here:

  • Social Media. Just look at their social media profiles and see how much of a following they have there. You can surely learn something here.
  • Their Help Center. Do you see how easily you can find the answer to a question you might have?
  • Their YouTube channel. They are currently working on their YouTube channel (they also use some of these videos on their product pages). Just take a look at this screenshot below:

2. Warmly

Niche: Home decor

Shopify dropshipping store example: Warmly - Screenshot of their homepage

Let's continue this list with the awesome store from Warmly.

As you can see in the screenshot of their homepage above, these are not your typical dropshipping products. They are mainly selling lighting products and home accessories.

Have you ever seen a dropshipping store in this niche? I don't think so.

Well, before you think this is a niche that won't get any traffic, here is a screenshot from SimilarWeb:

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Their niche. As I said above, have you ever thought about this niche to dropship products in? I don't think so. This is why it's great to think outside the box! Don't just think about pets, fitness, gadgets, and so on.
  • Their Pinterest account. The same as with the dropshipping store above, their main traffic source is Pinterest. (Click here to see their Pinterest profile.) Just take a look at the screenshots below:
You can find their Pinterest page here

3. Fresh Juice Blender

Niche: Home & Garden

Homepage of Fresh Juice Blender

Next up is a store that is using CJdropshipping for its products! (Check out our review here)

Fresh Juice Blender started around June 2021 and became a company in the UK on 26 August 2022 — meaning: something is going right!

They have had the CJdropshipping app installed since 11 December 2021 — making it a 95% chance that they are using their service and don't just have the app installed without using it.

Fresh Juice Blender using the CJdrosphipping app

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Their design and theme. Just look at their homepage; does that look like a dropshipping store or a professional brand that is here for the long term?
  • They are focussing on SEO. If you look at the screenshot below (via Ahrefs), you will see that they are dominating their main keyword, 'fresh juice blender,' on Google:
Fresh Juice Blender stats via Ahrefs
They are even making a few recipes!

4. Meowingtons

Niche: Cats

Shopify dropshipping store examples: Meowingtons

Next up is the cat store called Meowingtons. This is an excellent example of a branded dropshipping niche store.

I suggest watching the video below to learn why Meowingtons is such a great example:

5. Notebook Therapy

Niche: Notebooks/Stationary

Screenshot of the homepage from Notebook Therapy

Let's continue this example list with the dropshipping store called Notebook Therapy.

I’m not going to lie, this store looks so good that I’m still second-guessing if they are dropshipping or not.

Their design is so different than the usual dropshipping stores out there, but like most dropshipping stores, their shipping policy tells me that they are dropshipping:

Source

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Design. Well, I guess this one is obvious! Just go to their site and click around. Take a look at everything, from their menu bar to their color design. Looks awesome, right?
  • Social Media. Take a look at their Social Media profiles. For example, their Instagram page has got one million followers! Plus, they've currently got 2.5 million monthly views on Pinterest. (Click here to see their Pinterest profile.)

  • Influencers. Take a look at this page here to get some inspiration on how to create a page that says that you want to work together with influencers.

6. Sage & Sill

Niche: Home decor

Sage & Sill AliExpress dropshipping store homepage

Sage & Sill. That's what the next dropshipping store is called!

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! Just take a look at their shipping policy:

Sage & Sill shipping policy

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Color scheme. When going through their website, you can see that Sage & Sill uses a dark green color throughout their website. This gives the store a branded and 'uniform' feel. Even most of their products are green!
Sage & Sill Our Mission page
  • Use ‘Frequently Bought Together’ offers. They do a great job of using a ‘Frequently Bought Together’ section on their product page to increase their average order value.

    In other words, they offer accompanying products that customers can buy together for a discount. Check it out below:
Sage & Sill Frequently Bought Together offer

7. Turned Yellow

Niche: Personalized products/Drop servicing

Turned Yellow store homepage

Turned Yellow started with artists with the incredible talent of recreating the Simpsons' beloved and familiar style and has found a way to create unique art for their customers.

They also run stores like Turned Wizard and Make Me Jedi with the same business model called drop servicing — here's a bit more information:

Twitter thread about Turned Yellow
Check out this Twitter thread here

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Have an interactive ordering system for custom orders. Turned Yellow has an excellent way of displaying its settings for an order. You can easily toggle what you want.

    They design in a way that fits their visual brand nicely and is something you can keep in mind to create a similar experience for your customers.

8. Bicycle Booth

Niche: Cycling/POD

Homepage of Bicycle Booth

Let's not forget any print on demand stores! Here's a POD store called Bicycle Booth.

This company was a bit hard to figure out if they were using POD, but as you can see below, they have had both Printful and Printify installed for a while:

POD apps from Bicycle Booth

Plus, we found someone that worked at Bicycle Booth clarifying that they indeed use print on demand:

Proof that Bicycle Booth is using POD

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Great 'happy customers' page. They created a page called 'Happy Cyclists', which you can find here.
  • They are using Google Ads. Since you don't see many dropshipping stores using Google Ads, I thought it was worth the highlight — take a look at their overview of paid keywords below:
Paid keywords from Bicycle Booth

Tip: Want to see more print on demand store examples? Check out our list of the best examples here!

9. Palo

Niche: General

Palo AliExpress dropshipping store homepage

The following example on this list is called Palo.

This is a great example of a general dropshipping store!

Here are some things that you can look at:

Palo product selection
  • Product names. Let’s take a look at their products’ names. You will be able to see some of them in the images above.

    Palo wants visitors to believe that its products are branded. Thus, they have given their products branded names like 'Kraken - The Octopus Ring' and 'The Original Camera Lens Coffee Mug.' We really like naming your products like this.

    And if you're worried about the trademark symbol, we found that it has no legal meaning. So, you can use it in your product names without getting into legal issues.
  • Sticky add to cart. Palo created a ‘sticky add to cart bar’ that follows you as you scroll down the product page. This is a great way to ensure that your visitors can always find your product’s add-to-cart button!
Palo sticky add to cart bar

10. For My Doggy

Niche: Dogs

For My Doggy AliExpress dropshipping store homepage

The next dropshipping store example on this list is called For My Doggy.

This one is an AliExpress dropshipping store in the pet niche!

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • 'Free + Shipping' offers are still working. For My Doggy uses a 'Free + Shipping' offer. In other words, they try to lure customers in with what seems like a great deal, a free item! They just have to pay for the shipping costs.

    However, when customers proceed to check out, they will see that the shipping cost is relatively high — and that's because it includes some profit for the dropshipping store:
For My Doggy checkout for Free+Shipping offer
  • Product reviews. My Doggy puts product reviews on its product pages for increased social proof.

    The great thing about these reviews is that they also include an image, which makes them more trustworthy and also gives the customer a better opportunity to see how the product will look in real life!

    Likely, these reviews are simply imported from an AliExpress product page. The great thing is that they have filtered out all elements revealing that the reviews come from AliExpress, like the terms ‘seller’ and ‘fast shipping’:
For My Doggy product reviews

11. Bohemians Mart

Niche: Fashion/Bohemian

Homepage of Bohemians Mart

Next up is a fashion store called Bohemians Mart.

This store started with Oberlo (AliExpress dropshipping) as its main dropshipping app but has now switched to Spocket after trying out DSers and Eprolo when the Oberlo shutdown happened.

But looking at their shipping policy, they are probably using AliScraper — not Spocket's suppliers.

It's always good to double-check if they are dropshipping, and after researching, I found an old Flippa listing confirming that they were using Oberlo:

Flippa listing of Bohemians Mart

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Niche-focused. As you can see when going to their website, they are fully focused on the Bohemian niche — they don't sell any other random items.
  • Free traffic. Another great thing to learn about from them is their focus on free traffic — just take a look at their Flippa listing:
Bohemians Mart listing talking about their organic traffic

12. The Kawaii Shoppu

Niche: Kawaii

Homepage of  The Kawaii Shoppu

Let's continue this list with a dropshipping store called The Kawaii Shoppu.

This store started around 15 November 2019 and installed the Oberlo app almost directly (meaning: they are dropshipping via AliExpress).

Proof that The Kawaii Shoppu is using AliExpresss

After the Oberlo shutdown, they installed the DSers app and didn't uninstall it yet — they even wrote a review on the Shopify App Store for the DSers app:

Review for DSers from The Kawaii Shoppu

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Their design. Take a look at their site. Do you see how well their design fits with their target audience? Much better than a few random colors, right?
  • Their Instagram account. They currently have more than 135k followers! Check out their account here to get some inspiration.

13. Pawsitive Vibes

Niche: Pets

Pawsitive Vibes homepage

Pawsitive Vibes is a Spocket store for the pet-loving community.

The store primarily focuses on unique gifts for dogs, cats, and owners.

You'll find products like custom dog bandanas, cat collars, and pet-themed home goods.

We know that they're using Spocket since they left a review for the app recently:

Pawsitive Vibes Spocket review

What sets Pawsitive Vibes apart is its commitment to more than just selling products.

A portion of their sales goes towards helping animals, so they're definitely making a positive impact:

Pawsitive Vibes About Us

Here are some other things to learn from this store:

  • Blog. They have a blog section with articles like "How to Choose the Perfect Dog Bandana" and "Spoil Your Pup with a Homemade Dog Cake for Birthday." This kind of content can keep visitors engaged and coming back for more.
  • Catchy tone. Pawsitive Vibes is filled with catchy messages like 'Drama Free Returns' and 'You Shop, We Give.'
  • Pet Matcher Quiz. Pawsitive Vibes offers a fun Pet Matcher Quiz. This is a brilliant strategy because quizzes can keep visitors engaged longer on the site. Plus, based on quiz results, they can offer personalized product recommendations:
Pawsitive Vibes Pet Matcher Quiz
  • Free dog birthday cake recipe. This free recipe is a fantastic example of how stores can offer value to their audience while building up their email list:

14. MiracleSofa

Niche: Home & Garden

Homepage of MiracleSofa

Let's continue this list with a store called MiracleSofa.

This is another dropshipping store that is currently using CJdropshippoing to fulfill their orders.

It was a bit hard to confirm if they were dropshipping for sure, but seeing their Flippa listing makes it more clear:

Proof that MiracleSofa is dropshipping

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Google Ads. As you can see in the screenshot above, their primary traffic comes from Google Ads! Here's an overview via Semrush:
Google Ads from MiracleSofa
  • Blog. Look at their blog. This is a great idea when you have a niche store. You will have a great chance to get free traffic (via SEO) and keep your visitors on your dropshipping store.
  • GIFs in product descriptions. Look at their product descriptions. Do you see how every product has its own GIF explaining the product? (Here's an example)

15. SaberMasters

Niche: Lightsabers

Homepage of SaberMasters

Next up is a dropshipping store with products that you probably don't see much being dropshipped!

They are called SaberMasters and sell lightsabers from AliExpress (with DSers).

Looking at the LinkedIn profile of someone that worked for them, it looks like they are getting a lot of orders:

LinkedIn of someone that worked at SaberMasters
I mean, if you're getting 120+ unique messages per day, something is going well!

SaberMasters started around 18 September 2020 and installed the DSers app almost instantly. After that, they never removed the app, making it almost certain they were dropshipping.

Furthermore, besides looking at their shipping policy, other people online pointed out as well that they are most likely dropshipping.

For example, see this Reddit post here and check out this Instagram post:

Proof that SaberMasters is dropshipping

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Social proof. They have 'As Seen On' logos on the homepage and product pages (via Loox), a review video on the homepage, social media 'love' on their product pages — and they have reviews everywhere (even a 'Happy Customers' page).
  • Their product page. Take a look at their product here and tell me if it looks great! Of course, you can create a different kind of page, but it shows you that much more is possible than just placing a description there. (Here are ten more product page examples)

16. Pillow Slides

Niche: Home & Garden/Footwear

Homepage of Pillow Slides

I think this is an amazing example! It's a store that only sells 'pillow slides' — and they are called Pillow Slides!

They started with Oberlo as their dropshipping app (dropshipping from China), which we can confirm by looking at their shipping policy via the Wayback Machine:

Old shipping policy from Pillow Slides

As you can see in their current shipping policy, their US shipping time has changed a lot; this most likely means that their main target audience is in the US and that they found a local supplier or are buying in bulk:

New shipping policy from Pillow Slides

Looking at the data, it looks like they have Zendrop installed now:

Pillow Slides using a dropshipping app

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Listen to their founder. The main thing to learn from this store - besides looking at how well they branded their store - is to look at this interview with Jake, the founder of Pillow Slides:
How This 23 Year Old Makes $10M+ Selling Slippers

17. Neck Recliner

Niche: Health/Physical Therapy

Homepage of Neck Recliner

Let's continue this list with a dropshipping store mainly focused on one product. They are called Neck Recliner!

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Their Facebook Ads. After visiting their website, I was directly retargeted with this Ad with around six million views:
Facebook Ad from Neck Recliner
  • Their brand. If you didn't know they were dropshipping (check their shipping policy for their shipping times), would you think this is their branded product with the way they designed their homepage and product page?

18. How Do I Buy This

Niche: General

Homepage of How Do I Buy This

Next up is another general dropshipping called How Do I Buy This.

They started around 12 June 2020 with the Oberlo app but have recently switched to DSers and have CJdropshipping installed as well!

I thought this store was a great mention—just check out their description:

Stop searching and start living your best life, with access to all viral product.

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Product Reviews. Look how they have product reviews and pictures on their product pages. Looks much better than just written reviews or no reviews at all, right?
Product reviews on their product page
  • Frequently bought together. A great way to boost your average order value is by showing products usually bought together in the hopes that your visitors purchase more than the product they advertised to. (You might recognize that from Amazon: ‘Customers who viewed this item also viewed.’)

    Here’s an example of how they are doing this:
An example of them using frequently bought together

19. Shadow Meow

Niche: Gothic clothing + pets

Shadow Meow homepage

Shadow Meow is a Spocket store in a unique niche.

They target those who love the dark world of gothic fashion and the playfulness of cats.

It's not every day you come across a store like this.

Their motto, 'Gothic Clothing + Cats: A Purrfect Combination,' perfectly tells us the essence of their brand:

Shadow Meow goth cat clothing

They're using a combination of Gelato (print on demand) and Spocket to fulfill orders.

For instance, we found the cat skeleton necklace you see above from a US-based supplier on Spocket:

Spocket cat skeleton necklace

However, their clothing items are most likely sold through Gelato.

Here are some things to learn:

  • Niche. Shadow Meow's niche shows that you can be really creative when finding your niche. Their unique niche of goth + cats sets them apart and creates a memorable brand.
  • Clear product categories. The store is well-organized with clear categories like Shirts & Tops, Pants & Leggings, and Bags & Backpacks, making it easy for customers to find what they're looking for.
  • Customer-centric approach. Shadow Meow places its customers first by offering free US shipping and ensuring products are made with love:
Shadow Meow benefits

20. Epic Loot Shop

Niche: Apparel

Homepage of Epic Loot Shop

Here's another uniquely branded dropshipping store! They are called Epic Loot Shop.

They started around 18 September 2020 and are still growing:

Traffic increase of Epic Loot Shop
Source: Smilarweb

It was a bit hard to double-check if they were dropshipping (besides their long shipping times), but here's them confirming that they are using DSers — and that they have used Oberlo in the past:

Proof that they are using DSers

Here are some things that you can look at:

Valknut Sword Necklace
  • Product descriptions. Again, here is some inspiration for making your product descriptions different from the rest. Like that you don't need to have a white background if it doesn't fit with your branding!
  • Size guide pages. They created a ring size guide page and a bracelet size guide page! Because as you might know, ordering the wrong size is one of the most common return requests.
  • Phone number. Do you see that they added their customer service phone number to their menus? As you can see in this list of examples, you don't see many dropshipping stores with a phone number — but it's great to have.

21. iLoveMy Pet

Niche: Pets

Homepage of ILoveMy Pet

Let's continue this list with another pet dropshipping store called iLoveMy Pet.

According to their founders, they have done around $75k in sales since they started around August 2019:

Earnings of ILoveMy Pet

Since then, they are still holding strong, ranking for keywords like 'french bulldog merchandise':

Keywords that ILoveMy Pet is ranking for

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Review page. They have a review page available on their store. A review page shows all the reviews of your store. (Click here to learn how to create one.) Do you know the great thing about having a page like this (besides building more trust)?

    It has a chance to rank on search engines (like Google) when people search for “your store name” + reviews. Just take a look at the image below:
Their review page ranking in Google
  • Category pages. Take a look at their focus on the category pages. They even added links to them in their footer menu.
Category page example

22. GripXT

Niche: Fitness

GripXT AliExpress dropshipping store homepage

The next dropshipping store example on this list is called GripXT.

This store focuses on selling one main product, its grip strengtheners. However, they offer complementary products, too, to increase their average order value!

Here are some things that you can look at:

  • Using GIFs in the product description. With a product like these grip strengtheners, people may not fully understand how it works and how it can benefit them. Using GIFs, GripXT can show visitors their product in an engaging and easy-to-understand way:
GripXT product description GIFs
  • Use affiliate marketing. GripXT does a great job of using affiliate marketing to increase its sales.

    Basically, an influencer can join GripXT’s affiliate program to promote their products. And if someone purchases a product through them, they will get up to 10% of the revenue:
GripXT affiliate program

23. Nimalist

Niche: Apparel

Homepage of Nimalist

Let's continue this list with Nimalist.

Nimalist started around 11 December 2020 and installed the DSers app two days later.

They are still holding strong, even though they are doing many things wrong (more about that below).

It's a store that I thought was worth a mention—not because of the many things they were doing right, but by the many things they are doing wrong.

For example, here's what someone wrote about them on Reddit:

I'm suspicious of the site because the prices are too low, there is no given company address, and the phone number is associated with other suspicious looking websites.

Another great resource I found about this dropshipping store is this in-depth article discussing whether they are a scam.

Review of Nimalist

    I have saved as a favorite for later!

      Hi, thanks for your comment!

      Yes, that’s correct! That’s why I added ‘Updated’ before I started talking about Shopolis. I also explained there why I still kept it on the list for now.

      Plus, their Facebook page (here) is still there, which you can still get some inspiration from.

      Good luck with everything, and let me know if you ever have any questions!

  4. I like the Lifebooster website for its simple layout and optimzed and fast mobile design. I couldn’t tell which theme it uses. Can you tell with your experience? Thanks.

  5. I must say, This is a very informative blog and helps me to get new ideas and inspiration from these great looking sites that he mentioned in this blog for building new ecommerce brands on Shopify

    Thanks

    • I just want to know, why do these never include the business wayfare? They earn billions

      • Do Dropshipping - Author Logo

        Hi Noah,

        Thank you for your comment! That’s a great point; the main reason Wayfair is not on this list is that this list mainly contains Shopify stores, and Wayfair doesn’t use Shopify as far as I know.

        However, since what you said sounds like a great way to show that dropshipping isn’t only used by small Shopify stores (I mean, small in comparison to stores like Wayfair), we plan on creating a new article where we will cover bigger ecommerce stores that use dropshipping or have used dropshipping in the past (for example, Gymshark started with dropshipping).

        I wish you the best with everything!
        – Richard

  6. The fact that many of these “most successful” dropshipping stores are either closed or broken is a testament of the current state of affairs in dropshipping.

    • Do Dropshipping - Author Logo

      Hi,

      Thank you for your comment! I don’t get that many comments from people who are negative about dropshipping, but it’s always great to hear different opinions!

      Alright, so regarding your comment, I counted them again and currently only 3 out of the 21 store examples are offline, which is around 14%. I kept them there because there are still a few things to be learned from them (for example, how not to treat your customers).

      But for you this means dropshipping is not good anymore? Or what is your point here?

      I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

  7. Hi Richard. I wasn’t trying to be negative, only realistic. You mention offline stores but have you seen “dude gadgets”? It’s totally broken surely abandoned. You can’t even browse their products anymore.

    I don’t think dropshipping in good or bad terms. I’m starting a site myself. I just think many drop shippers are really struggling. Probably some were deluded thinking that pushing random products to their sites will make them money. Others might have done everything right but the economy doesn’t help.

    Dropshipping is a sound business and can work, but it seems to me the are more failures than success stories.

    I think you are doing everyone a great service with your suggestions and guides, but personally i would add that people should really do what they are passionate about. Selling dentistry equipment just because you think it will sell its a recipe for failure.

      Hi,

      Great point about Dude Gadgets! You got me there, I forgot about them. The thing that you do need to understand here is that I keep updating this article (I think it started with only 12 examples). Plus, I’m sure that there are more dropshipping stores out there that I don’t know about yet.

      I definitely understand your opinion, that’s why I created this blog. This blog is all about trying to change people’s mindset from “I’m going to get rich fast” to “Wow, this is a real business!” Did you check out the about page already?

      Also, you can take a look at this article here and you will see what I mean.

      I would love to chat further if you want, you know where to contact me 😊

      I wish you the best with everything man!

    Great work Richard and his team. Providing us knowledge seekers with Free and great content which the Gurus continue to sell to us.

    I helped my wife start a Shopify store but its a long term thing and potentially branding. W decided on purchasing and holding stock as the challenge on shipping times were not favourable. We hopefully go live in a few weeks once all our stock arrives. These are products she knows a lot about and passionate about to do with children.

    I am here because I want to dropship exclusively on my next store and I found your content very useful. Particularly the part about local supplier. I see alot of these Youtube ads with people selling 3k courses to teach you how to dropship using local suppliers here in the UK.

    Glad I found your stuff. I have a product I want to dropship and the hardest part is logistics. I am yet to find a good supplier with decent shipping times for UK.

    ‘In order for the human race to evolve we must help each other’ – Sadly only a few have cracked the code.

    Thank you for the great work! – Keep it up.

  13. Hi – great article. One thing that strikes me about a lot of these sites is that even though they look great, some get some terrible reviews with customers talking about the inferior quality and the really long shipping times.

    Is this just something that comes with dropshipping? surely all these poor reviews would put these companies out of business?

    PS really enjoying all the info you have provided.

      Hi,

      Thank you for your comment!

      Dropshipping can be a great way to get started in ecommerce, but it certainly isn’t without its challenges. The fact is that with dropshipping businesses, a lot of the control over the product quality and shipping times resides with the supplier. That makes it difficult to guarantee customer satisfaction at times. (We go more in-depth about this in this article here)

      However, by doing your due diligence beforehand and partnering with reputable suppliers, you can minimize the chances of getting bad reviews. It’s also important to be proactive about resolving customer issues in order to maintain a positive reputation and keep customers satisfied! (Here’s an article going over how to choose the best dropshipping supplier)

      For the companies mentioned in this article, I can’t comment on what exactly they are doing to keep their customers happy – but after updating this article a few times with new examples, the ones with bad reviews usually go down one way or another (if they don’t improve anything).

      One example of a dropshipping store mentioned in this article at first is Shopolis; check out their Trustpilot profile here. (A lot of negative reviews)

      Let me know if you have any other questions, and good luck with everything!

  14. Hi! My name is Waqas. I’m very much impressed by your efforts of dropshipping business. Definitely! Someone may get benefits from your article/blog as well. I’m also very interested in starting a dropshipping business after reading the article.

    I’m a bit confused after reading the details of some of the dropshipping businesses mentioned above in the list ( Miracle Sofa, Bohemians Mart). They have a lot of traffic in their websites and earn much more money then why do they list their business at Flippa?

    Why do they have the intention to sell out the running dropshipping business? So they have become a market leader and also have many customers and social media followers? Then what is the need to sell out the running dropshipping business?
    Ref: is listed above in the case of Miracle Sofa and Bohemians Mart.

    Could you pls brief about this?

    Regards:

      Hi Wagas,

      Thank you for your comment! It’s great to hear that you like our blog 😊

      That’s a great question; the owners of Miracle Sofa and Bohemians Mart may have listed their businesses at Flippa for various reasons. (Here’s a great list of reasons)

      It could be that they want to pursue other business opportunities, or they just need extra capital – whatever the reason is, selling a successful business via Flippa is one way to do it. Ultimately, it’s up to the individual business owner to decide what’s best for them in terms of selling or keeping their business!

      Good luck with everything!
