Drop Shipping In Nigeria- Experience, Advice And How To by raypex(m): 11:48am On May 23, 2016
Hello Nairalanders.
Drop shipping which basically involves selling products directly from manufacturers / wholesalers without you handling any inventories and physical goods is known to be a profitable business worldwide, and has made many, hundreds of thousands and even millions (Am speaking dollars).

The question is, what are tje current realities for starting this business in Nigeria? Is the problem of international shipping still an issue, or have time frames for free shipping improved? how long does it take on average?
Do the customers get discouraged by the shipping time?

Also I would like those of us interested in this biz to know some reliable sites or partners that drop ship to Nigeria.
Also could there be any existing Nigerian whosalers / manufactures that drop ship?

Whatever knowledge you have about drop shipping will be welcomed, pls share.

Re: Drop Shipping In Nigeria- Experience, Advice And How To by kushb: 1:32pm On May 23, 2016
Let me also add that I am very much interested in this,if ur in Lagos,we can hook up and see if we can initiate the startup
Re: Drop Shipping In Nigeria- Experience, Advice And How To by raypex(m): 2:57am On May 24, 2016
Sounds like a nice idea. I am glad there are like minds here. But I am in Ph, not lagos.
Anyways we can always communicate here on nairaland as we get to understand how (and if) it can be successfully carried out in Nigeria.
Perhaps someone with experience /info about this potential profit maker, would drop a comment soon.
Cheers! #TheHustle

In my opinion, the only thing that has changed is our Forex rate. So customers now have to pay more and it's not because the manufacturer increased the prices for anything. Our FOREX rate simply changed. Again, express shipping is usually costlier. Apart from Chinese manufacturers and sellers, i don't know any other dealers that use FOB shipping. Even at that, how many customers can wait for 3 weeks to get their order?

in all, drop-shipping is a lucrative business.

Built thi for my wife.Purely dropshipping and its been profitable.But seriously guys ..marketing...marketing..marketing that's the key.
Re: Drop Shipping In Nigeria- Experience, Advice And How To by mchenzy: 5:25pm On Dec 16, 2016
Is very easy to start dropshipping. Just built mine yesterday with just $4 BitCoin... awkward? Yea it is.... only one person here in Nairaland knows about my dropshipping.

The way I see it is this, don't share anything till it has grown. That's the hard lesson I have learnt.

Edit: Ask me questions and I will answer them but when it goes too much to big secrets I won't answer them...fair enough.

Dude, each to his own field. You quote you have seen, have you made your so called $100,000 in 2 weeks? Maybe you buy/download those WSO shits. Have you really seen? If you have, why not say how? The truth is this nobody tells you his/her total secret of how he/she makes his/her money. You know Josh MacDonald? 19 year kid who made $100,000 in few weeks just developing software, when he was interviewed by Forbes he said I can't tell you how exactly I made my money but I can tell you how you can make yours. Why? Nobody likes being out of business when there are many in line to take over.

$100,000 in 2 weeks is damn reality Gee in Dropshipping but where are you from and what marketing avenues have you? To be included in this range of earnings, you must combine heavy off page SEO and On page SEO in a Dropshipping business profitable to your location which was built up with time.

Yes local Dropshipping will earn you that much if your resources are right.

Since when have you had these vidz? If you can see from my first post on this thread I said I will answer what I can but when it comes to tech I can't. And nobody has asked questions since then. I can't just start thrashing out issues when people ain't interested.

For how long have you had these vidz?

I don't hate you Gee, my take with you is this. You started by giving out figures and vivid testimony that you have seen experts in such calibre. I asked you, if so what have you done, do you have a Dropshipping biz and have you started? You just shared vidz which will even make matters worse.

Tell me. Chris offered to give people in watch the vidz a 30days trial on Shopify which will force you to go for 2nd plan after expiry. I have 65 days trial which can give you options on Shopify plans. Does Nigerian Debt/Credit cards work on Shopify this days? How will a Nigerian solve that?

Did Chris address accepting payments on Shopify store for a Nigerian? Getting approved by eCommerce gateways as a Nigerian? Cos if you falsify these, on the long run you will be banned and forced to make refunds while your finds are seized. Chris addressed how to recover your funds when seized as a merchant but did he address the Nigerian scene?

I can go on and on to mention how those vidz won't work well for a beginner. You thought you were sharing but you didn't know you were complicating issues.

eCom, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, Shopify....all have the same problem as Nigerian. My point is this 88% of this pdf and video we read and watch is never tailored for the Nigerian man. People (Nigerian Info Marketers) study them and digest to feed Nigerians in a manner that will ease their trouble. So, to give information of such, you must make it edible for a Nigerian.

I opened my shop last week or so but have made few sales without FB but with Pinterest and Quora help. Why am I not using FB? Simple, my niche sells low doing Christmas but after that. Is simple strategy to build up now in targetted traffic and bank enough backlink before venturing into FB as to help having good serp in Google when I need it. This I did figure out not on my own but from combination of different ideas.
