NEW video added: Visiting Coffee Factory Insights & Tips

Today we are in Guangzhou, an industrial city in China and visiting a

Coffee Maker Factory that is producing coffee makers for the top

European brands. We will see the production, show you real life

insights on how Chinese factories look and work, what questions you

should be asking when visiting your supplier and what quality control

is in place. Great insights from the real Chinese factory!

As a bonus we are sharing great tips for Amazon FBA sellers.

Visiting China is not required but will put you ahead of competition

if you really go extra mile and visit your suppliers and establish

personal level of trust with them. It’s much harder for supplier to

scam you and provide poor quality if he knows that you can just hop on

the plane and visit their factory in person next day to check the

quality! Trust me, it works!

P.S. Holiday season is starting soon and December is the BEST month for Amazon and Shopify sales, don’t miss out! Make sure to check seasonal trends with SellsLikeHotCakes best seller finder tool to see which products sell best during holiday. Hint: funny mugs, funny stickers, card etc.

Great idea George.. The best thing is shopify is not just for dropshipping! You can sell your own products and even fullfill by amazon for your shopify sales. Check ByteStand and several other apps for AMAZON integration into shopify

On shopify you can increase your profits margins by increasing your prices, as your visitors cant compare your offer to competitor offers like on Amazon and pick cheapest.
Moreover you can build your list and drive your own traffic from facebook (you would not do it to amazon, as you cant build your list from amazon)... Cons? Well, you won't get easy organic sales like on Amazon just from having shopify store. So still you need to drive some traffic to get it going! but it works, I know many people sell their own products on shopoify not just dropshippers!

My question is.. What is the best time to start selling summer products?
 
Claudia says at 07:40 et
Thank you Sandra.. Please check the TRENDS and SEASONS tool we have for your product.. Usually April-May is a good time to start selling summer products. Sales peak in June-July.

Is it still ok to give away discounted coupons?
 
Claudia says at 19:40 et
Yes as long as you don't ask for reviews in exchange. It will still increase your sales velocity and ranks.. However maybe it makes more sense to run PPC instead of giving away your product too cheap 50-75% OFF instead of PPC? Depends on the niche..

OMG!! today i see ... part of my inventory seems missing? what to do?

Claudia says at 21:23 et
Go to Inventory > Manage FBA Shipments and check if they were received correctly by warehouse? if not, file a report and amazon will research and investigate and credit you for missing or lost units. Finally, check to see if there have been any recent inventory adjustments by using the Inventory Adjustments Report and check to see if there are any ongoing warehouse transfers using the Inventory Event Detail Report.

Use a 3rd party inspection company. Check out www.chinaqualitycheck.com or guidedimports.com

Btw great idea for you: customized license plate... build shopify store, then source from sites like buildasign.com Then promote via Facebook ads. Like PUGS licence plate for pug owners etc

HOW DO I manage customer returns?
 
3
Claudia says at 04:49 et
Ricardo, in case of FBA then Amazon will handle everything (returns, refunds). In case of drop shipping, I suggest to buy a virtual forwarding address in USA where customers can send returns and it forwards it to you later.

Thanks Claudia! , I am starting with dropshipping aliexpress and shopify. My store is about Rock Music (t-shirts and accesories) I have a fan page with +3 Million fans (fb.com/elrockescultura.org) but they are almost everyone from MEXICO, so epacket here it does not work so well, I tested posting one product, (without ads, pixel, autoresponder, analytics, chatbots, retargeting, etc) and we sold 20 items in 3 days, but 15 from Mexico. So what idea do you know around how can I will manage returns?? thank you!

Tshirts you can ship using tspring or t-launch app for shopify or even Merch if you use amazon. you dont need to ship tshirts from china.
I suggest to post your store for critics and we all can post more suggestions. It's hard to suggest blindly.

Mexico is a great market, most people dont sell there and always target USA only.

If you use the apps such as OBERLO to link alixpress to shopify then you can set auto update of the prices in the settings of oberlo!

Hi, Claudia and Friends...
Just brainstorming a bit! Is it possible to monetize a Shopify store solely or in part by customer's purchases?
