Let's discuss something every online shopper (and seller!) deeply cares about: delivery times.
Have you ever been super excited about a purchase, only to find out it'll take what feels like years to reach you?
Yup, we've all been there.
Long delivery times can be a real excitement killer.
But here's the good news for anyone using Spocket: On average, the delivery time is just around seven days.
It's not ‘next-day delivery' fast, but it's also not ‘wait for a month' slow.
However, compared to most dropshippers who use a Chinese supplier and have delivery times between 12-60 days, you can consider Spocket's delivery time fast!
Ultimately, faster delivery can lead to better reviews, repeat business, and positive word of mouth.

A 5.4% growth in the last three months.

With dropshipping, the location of your supplier is crucial.
It's not just about having a winning product; it's about quickly getting that product to the customer.
With most suppliers based in the US and Europe, Spocket offers that delivery time advantage that many dropshippers lack.

11. 33.5% of Shopify stores that use Spocket are in the apparel niche, followed by beauty & fitness (17.7%) and home & garden (16.5%)
When looking at the distribution of niches of Spocket stores, we find that a significant 33.5% of Shopify stores using Spocket are selling apparel.
That's right! Once again, it shows that apparel is the most common dropshipping niche.
Next up, we've got the beauty & fitness stores, representing a strong 17.7%.
If you've been anywhere near social media, you'd know that beauty tutorials, skincare regimes, and home workouts are incredibly popular.

12. 76.8% of Shopify stores that use Spocket are based in the US, followed by Canada (5.7%) and the UK (5.5%)
An astounding 76.8% of Shopify stores using Spocket are based in the US!
With Spocket's strong supplier network in the region (remember that 80% supplier stat?), it's no wonder that so many American Shopify stores use the platform.
Canada takes the second spot, accounting for 5.7% of Spocket stores. And the UK takes the third spot, representing 5.5% of the pie.
13. Most Spocket users (24.6%) sell between 25 and 49 products
If you've ever wondered how many products you should offer on your dropshipping store, Spocket's users might have a hint for you.
24.6% of Spocket users have 25 to 49 products on their online stores.

14. Spocket is the 4th most popular Shopify dropshipping app
Between the many dropshipping apps, Spocket takes 4th place in the ‘Most installed' category!
But which apps is it competing against?
DSers takes the top spot; it's a favorite for many and known for its AliExpress integration:
Next up is CJdropshipping, which offers global suppliers and a tremendous product catalog.
In third place is Zendrop, which offers a streamlined dropshipping experience focusing on fast shipping.
Now, you might wonder, ‘If Spocket is so great, why is it fourth?'
Well, first of all, the competition is fierce! If you look at the names on this list, being among the top four is a great achievement.
Plus, with its emphasis on US and European suppliers, Spocket may be a bit more ‘niche' than some of its competitors.
And let's not forget the disadvantages of using Spocket compared to Chinese-supplier-based apps like DSers or CJdropshipping.
Generally, the product prices on Spocket are higher, and the number of products to choose from is lower!
That's the price you pay for using local dropshipping suppliers.
15. Spocket is the 113th most popular Shopify app
When looking at the bigger picture, Spocket is currently the 113th most popular Shopify app.
Considering there are over 8,000 apps in the Shopify App Store, this is also a big achievement!
16. The typical response time from Spocket's support team is three minutes
Let's face it: even the best tools can leave you needing a bit of a hand-holding every now and then.
And when that happens, the time it takes to get a response can feel like an eternity.
Well, according to Spocket, their support team is available 24/7 and typically replies in under three minutes!
Of course, we decided to take that claim to the test ourselves.
Unfortunately, at 11:12 am, all of Spocket's agents were engaged:
After waiting for 32 minutes, we finally got a reply:
Now, that's 32 minutes, not three.
So, during the day, we opened a new live chat three more times, and luckily, someone replied within three minutes every single time!
All in all, we do believe that you will typically receive a reply within three minutes, but be aware that it can also take longer if there's a lot of demand!

Diving into the metrics, let's talk about traffic.

On average, Shopify stores that have installed Spocket have 2,330 estimated visits each month.
That's roughly 77 visitors per day.
Now, while 2,330 might not be in the ‘going viral' territory, it's a solid, steady, and impactful number, especially for beginning stores.
