Are you wondering what a dropshipping FAQ page is? Or maybe you’re just here for the FAQ template. Either way, you’re in the right place! In this article, I will show you exactly what a Frequently Asked Questions page is and why it’s important for dropshipping stores. Spoiler? It can save you some time for your customer service!
A FAQ page, or Frequently Asked Questions page, is a page with a list of the most common questions that people have asked about your store or about a specific product. You will answer them one-by-one here. Having this page on your store will save you in customer support time because they can find the answers to their questions by themself.
But that’s not all; below, you will learn exactly what questions to include in the FAQ page of your dropshipping store.
What is a FAQ page?
Let’s begin by understanding what a FAQ or Frequently Asked Questions page means, because if you don’t understand this, then the rest of the article will be hard to understand.
If you do understand this already, then you can of course scroll down.
A FAQ page is usually a list of common questions people have asked about your store, for example, your delivery time, or about a specific product.
And yes, I know, most dropshipping stores don’t have these default pages. Here is your chance to beat them!
Think of a FAQ page as an automated customer support page or a simplified product manual. Your visitors can find their answers here all by themself without contacting your customer service.
Do you already see why websites add a page like this?
Why are FAQ pages important for dropshipping stores?
Look, here is the deal; many stores often get asked the same questions over and over again from potential customers and existing customers. For example, questions like “How long does shipping take?” or “Can I cancel my order?”
Now you (or someone that you hired) can either spend all your time answering all these general questions, or you can add a FAQ page to your store where they can find their answer by themself.
Plus, you can even link to your FAQ page from your contact page:
Think about how much time you can save from allowing customers to help themselves by using a FAQ page.
What questions to add on a FAQ page?
Now that you’re hopefully convinced to use a FAQ page let’s continue to the best part of this article; the dropshipping FAQ page template!
But before that, your goal is to gather all the common questions your customers have asked you or your customer support team before and add them to a document, so you got some questions specific to your business already. Awesome, right?
If you didn’t receive any questions yet or if you don’t have any customers yet, then no worries, keep reading below!
I will start with some common tips for creating your FAQ page:
- Update it constantly. Keep looking at all the questions that you get from your potential and current customers. Are there any common patterns? Can you include any of these questions to your FAQ page? Don’t forget to update old questions and answers as well.
- Keep it short. Write short and precise questions with answers. This way, it’s easier to read through it all. You can even categorize your questions to organize your questions related to specific topics. For example, “Shipping & Delivery”, “My Existing Order”, and so on.
- Add links to other pages. This is a great tip if you can’t make the answer or the question short. You can link to other pages in your store. For example, if you explained a lot about how your refunds work in your “Refund Policy”, then you can link to there.
I hope you got some inspiration now already, let’s continue with the template!
Dropshipping FAQ page template
- What methods of payment do you accept? For example, PayPal and all major credit cards. You could also type something about Gift cards. Maybe you only want to accept Gift cards that are issued by your dropshipping store?
- What if I need to modify my order? If you would like to add items to your existing order, please place an additional order. We do not store your payment information, so we cannot change the order.
- How do I cancel my order? You can answer this with “orders cannot be canceled after they are placed”, or you can give your customers a time window of like 24 hours that they can cancel their order.
- Do you provide tracking information? Yes, we will send you a tracking number via email once your order ships. If you haven’t received tracking info within 5 days, then please contact us.
- I ordered multiple items but only received one. Where is the rest of my order? We work with multiple global partners, so it can happen that your items are shipped separately; this is to speed up delivery. Don’t worry, you will get the items that you ordered.
And don’t forget to add something about customs duties or import duties.
Like this example from Inspire Uplift:
But what about the questions related to shipping?
You will also have to add something about shipping. You can either place all the shipping information on your FAQ page or you can create a Shipping Policy.
This will then contain all the information and questions regarding shipping.
Don’t forget to link some were in your FAQ page to your shipping policy, for example:
When will I receive my order? You can check out our Shipping Policy here for all the latest information regarding shipping.
