Let's start this list with a banger!

Pillow Slides is one of the best-looking dropshipping stores we have ever seen.

You can learn so much by looking at this store; we could write an entire article about it!

Pillow Slides is a one-product store selling 'Pillow Slippers' for men, women, and the youth.

Perhaps, the most remarkable thing about is store is that they took these 'boring' pair of slippers:

And suddenly, Pillow Slides made these slippers much more interesting with a genuinely amazing branded store design:

Guess what? It became a big success!

Note: If you’re worried about the trademark symbol in a product name, we found that it has no legal meaning. So, you can use it in your product names without getting into legal issues.

Just listen to Jake, the founder of Pillow Slides, who claims he's making $10M+ with this store:

Here are some other inspiring things about Pillow Slides:

However, as you can see in their current shipping policy, the 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 US supplier or are buying in bulk:

Let's continue with More Than A Backpack. Quite clear that they focus on backpacks, right? Or is there more than just a backpack? 😉

Well, yes, there is! That's because this dropshipping store also sells handbags, bags for cameras, and various accessories.

So, why do we think this awesome-looking store is dropshipping?

There are several reasons. For example, they state the following in their footer:

We source our backpacks from all over the globe to offer you something you won't find close to home.

That's definitely a friendly way of saying the following, right?

We buy our products from Chinese suppliers, so you don't have to.

Continuing our research, we tried to find their Mochilas School Backpack on AliExpress:

  • Create a blog/journal. Starting a blog or journal is a great thing to do when growing your dropshipping store. It shows your visitors that you have knowledge of your niche, so it helps to build trust! Not to mention, you may get some free traffic to your store from your articles!

However, there are still a lot of things you can learn from this store:

  • High-quality images. In a world where people are constantly bombarded with images, it's important to ensure that the images you use on your website are high quality and engaging. Great images can help your store stand out from the crowd and give customers a positive impression of your brand:

  • A 'Reviews' page. Eiken has a 'Reviews' page published 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 can rank on search engines (like Google) when people search for “your store name” + reviews. Just take a look at the image below:
