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”.

Hey fellow Shopifyers and Amazoners ! I would be very grateful for some input! I am setting up a blog for my site. I am not looking for the native shopify blog vs. wordpress pros and cons?

Shopify has built in blog functionality - that's all you really need.. why would you separate blog from the store, it makes no sense these days.

Paypal accounts for about 45% of our sales. I'd say 20% of conversations are coming from Amazon. Also add Stripe and they'll have a much more straightforward guest checkout with credit card.

Try Shipwire to ship to US customers and across Canada, shipwizmo.com, maybe even Fulfilled by Amazon? Also ZhenHub they have fulfillment centers around the world - China, USA, UK, Germany, Australia.

Jeff, have you watched the videos? The price is decided by your supplier. It can go as high as $150 per sample. Usually it's $30-60 WITH delivery!

little_tiger means FBA model and price for sample if you go wholesale from Alibaba... Of course if you do dropshipping on Aliexpress, you just get 1 copy for yourself super cheap to test the quality

Use the best selling products of your website of course. You can also do the seasonal offers there (like Halloween, Christmas etc)

Thank you Ted. I feel silly asking newbie questions, but it's the only way I'll get over the hump of launching my first store.

Hi,
I have finished watching the video about "incorporation and taxes" but I'm lost. If I understood correctly the suggested way to open a seller central account is as a professional.
-What do I need to open a professional account?
-Do I need a LLC? bank account? address??
Can someone explain ---> my situation will be "Rest of the world selling in the US"
Thank you!

You need an LLC, Bank account and a credit card. Yes your company does not have to be from USA even if you plan to sell in USA
