Magic mug case study?

Here is another great example of what sells well with drop shipping. Honestly I really liked this product and even purchased it for myself. As usual I am giving you great finds that I got on facebook, I am not affiliated with any of the products I show in examples

Here is their winning ad. It’s a video FB ad, they are using “as seen on tv” approach with a lot of great scarcity special symbols like FIRE and special discount:

People are reacting well, it collected over 442 shares and thousands of likes.

As you can see the MAGIC MUG is on sale for “just” $39.99 usd. (“used to” be 69 lol)

Nicely done shopify store with all the scrarcity apps you can think of.

Now using the Sells Like Hot Cases best seller finder or other tools you can see the sourcing price on aliexpress for dropshipping is $12.65 with shipping from CHINA.

That is 39.99 – 12.65 = $27.4 profit!

So dropshipping profit is 27.4 usd (very good). Deduct the cost of the fb ads and you still get a great winner.

Obviously they can maximize profits by going FBA model using Alibaba.

The NET profit becomes closer to $35 usd but you have to order more units of course plus combine it manually with gloves etc.

What’s also interesting that you could be dropshipping this also from Amazon, almost for the same price with no need to ship from China: 12.99

Anyways it’s a great example that system works great regardless if you use the dropshipping method or the FBA method, there are plenty of successful products and it’s never “too late”.

Professional for sure! Get LLC State Registration to protect yourself legally. Important: To Sell In USA you don’t have to live there or have USA company/Bank acc! Plus you get all the features of PPC, Lightning deals etc.
Cons? Small monthly amazon fee.

You can say the product is out of stock due to "high demand", "custom printing", "warehouse relocation". And then instead use Pre-order now and get special early bird discount price...

DHL Express for all international shipments. IT's 20% more expensive than USPS but it will provide international tracking and it's much faster as well. For example $30 for 16 ounces (500 gram) in DHL to Australia.. (discounted rate) get account with them!

Call them to confirm or better via email because if he still try to ask for chargeback you have prove. They could be resellers, distributing.. google map the location is real, ship to billing address .. use paypal protection also..

Do you know number 1 reason most people fail in ecommerce?

It's because they never get themselves a chance, they never get started, always procrastinating and delaying the start.

I get questions and complains like "I don't have time for this", "How much time do I need?" Well if you can't even find time to learn how are you supposed to build your passive income?

The beautify of Amazon and Shopify business is that once it is set, you are set "for life" with a strong passive income.

The problem? Most people don't realize it and never start!

"I'm too busy working" (the old way)

So the hashtag for the day - TAKE ACTION!

Start implementing what you learned and you will become successful, I believe in you!

How current is the information on the FBA fees and top sellers/total sales? I have another product that I am using and there is a big varience between the numbers.

 Mike says at 16:31 et
Its auto updating Clay. It will be alwayas a varience as there is no right or wrong way to calculate it, the real numbers only Amazon know.. What we or Jungle scout do is just approximation based on BSR to get an educated guess on sales

Hello All,

I am launching a wellness and health niche on shopify. We have our private labeled products and also connected to aliexpress. How can I selectively charge shipping on our private labelled products and not charge on aliexpress products? Thank you

 Chris says at 05:24 et
Uma, two ways...
1. set the shipping zones in shipping settings
2. add shipping cost in price for your private label products and make shipping appear free.

I have watched a lot of videos and I understand what they are telling me to do. However, I can't memorize an all the instructions. Is there a written text instruction that I can reread the instructions as I am filling out the forms? I have been putting everything on my reading list but don't know if that is enough.
