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”.

Claudia says at 21:16 et
"Free On Board" is a term in international commercial law specifying at what point respective obligations, costs, and risk involved in the delivery of goods shift from the seller to the buyer. Indicating "FOB port" means that the seller pays for transportation of the goods to the port of shipment, plus loading costs. The buyer pays cost of marine freight transport, insurance, unloading, and transportation from the arrival port to the final destination. The passing of risks occurs when the goods are loaded on board at the port of shipment.

I had over eight merchant providers turn me down. For example, when you think hemp--you think...marijuana. Providers said no,no,no....Hemp is illegal, which it is not! And search Aliexpress for hemp clothing and what do you get, marijuana paraphernalia--not 100% hemp products! Hemp is just another tag for broadcloth. What I do not get is I have seen things like marijuana seed sites with a shopify or Paypal logo on their site? But.. I was denied by both of them for trying to sell anything that could be misconstrued as for marijuana..like vaporizers listed under Aromatherapy. Are not marijuana seeds sold for the purpose of growing an illegal plant in most states/provinces? Why the hypocrisy with merchant providers?

You see, every provider wants to stay safe. If you are new and coming with a first product and start with something on the "edge" like marijuana-related stuff you might have trouble for sure. Start with safer products, get approved easily, then get some volume going and only when you are a trusted seller add more edgy products. Hope this helps

This is a video showing why and how you can buy and sell the ecommerce businesses (small or big)

2. Fullproof tips how to avoid paying huge long term storage fees on Amazon FBA
THis is great to show you how to avoid pitfalls with storage fees and get rid of slow selling product!

3. Using Crowdsourcing Campaign to boost your sales and jump start your product (Case study)
I dont always win and this is a fun video showing how i failed in crowdsourcing on kickstarter but still made $10k along the way and what you can learn from my mistakes! I hope my story will give you great ideas on how to boost your sales with crowdfunding!

By the way if you enjoy our course, please let me know, I really appreciate your reviews and your comments and questions!

You joined the course on the insane low price for first early-bird 500 betatesters (you know similar courses usually charge $150-190 or more for way less content) so your early feedback is really important to me!

Hi guys!

I just returned back from China trip, that was such an amazing and eye opening experience to see REAL China, to break stereotypes, to meet my chinese partners, sourcing agents.

I had a great opportunity to get in depth insights into Chinese whitelabelling business, I even visited and FILMED several factories for you! So you will see my journey and hopefully follow and take action as well, starting your own successful business in China!

We also had a chance to visit Canton fair, the biggest industrial fair in the world with over 45000 factories showing their newest products to potential FBA sellers from all over the world! We filmed it too to give you real life insights on how we choose the product and what questions we ask!

It will take me couple of months to cut all material and prepare the videos, but once ready, you will be first to receive them! Stay tuned and enjoy our course! Remember I do it in my spare time from selling, as doing course does not really bring me any money with such a low price, so my main profit only comes from selling itself, that's why I'm little slow on cutting the videos so bear with me :)

Thank you again for leaving your reviews for the course, it really helps me a lot spread the word and inspire me keep going and share this exciting material with you to help you succeed on Amazon and shopify!

Mike

What was your most meaningful review (so far) like? What impact did it have on you? What would you want your dream review to say if your student could only use one sentence?

The fact that someone took action and started his own ecommerce business is the best review for me. I know many people only learn but never take action or find excuses like "i dont have time for this", so I really appreciate when people take action and do what they learn!

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.
