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”.

With the new Amazon policies, Amazon does not allow incentivized reviews tied to free or discounted products. However they still allow discounts coupons and people can leave the reviews as long as you never ASK THEM TO or promise discount in return for a review.. See new video we posted about AMAZON launch and getting reviews legally with Followup series and social media!

Moreover discount sales will boost your amazon ranks a lot. It's still a great idea combining with Lightning Deals and PPC.

Check Fetcher, CashCowPro and tools like that! Hope it helps! They connect directly to your amazon seller-central to fetch data and build a nice stats&charts&fees page.

Im new to dropshipping... If you do dropshipping and sell more than one item on the same order, it can happen that the items are from different suppliers, how do you handle the shipping issue of 2 packages with your customers?

Not a problem.. tell they are shipped from different warehouses.. Even amazon does that.. The customer does not care.
Or the forwarder can receive goods and consolidate orders..

You can get direct support through seller support.. Use the contact seller support link at the bottom of the page and request response by call back, they will call you if it is an issue which can be dealt with on the phone. Also I found following Amazon.com 866-216-1072
877-251-0696 206-266-2992 Cust. service Seller support

Business registration in an EU country or company in EU, VAT registration in every country where your inventory is held, (usually its UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, and the Czech Republic) Also need CE certification. then you do in future also Annual income tax filings in your EU registered country, Monthly VAT filings in your registered countries, Annual, quarterly, or monthly filings of your activities with Interstat (the frequency depends on your sales volumes), A continuous customs bond for Schengen countries.
Continuous customs bonds for non-Schengen countries (basically the UK). There are companys that handle all that paperwork like FBA-Hero, check resources sections..

Check with your supplier to see if they have product liability in placement for you first as a customer, as most do.

He means product liablity probably... If you have a professional account you have to have insurance. Under ATO all Pro accounts must have $1 mill liability insurance. Its pretty straight forward. Also If you sell $10k for 3 consecutive months on your "Individual account" you have to provide insurance. Check Amazon TOS!

My advice for people who are not successful with dropshipping/shopify - remember its not just about the product but the ads strategy!without building REAL community cold traffic ads just don't work to the cold traffic. I see others who are successful with dropshipping among my partners do a serious community and devote great effort into building it (like baby / moms community) or funny products community.
paying just for clicks to cold traffic with no community just does not work, no matter how hard you work or how much you test! So my advice is first build a facebook community before paying for facebook ads. there is some great video about it in the sells like hot cakes course in the end of the shopify mastery.
