okay. Do you have any plan to do a tutorial on this from A-z on this thread or it will just be a question and answer thingy?

I'm honestly too busy to post a tutorial on this... There are lots of posts about that on the internet already... Question and Answer seems less stressful to me.

I'd like it to be a question and Answer session, and anyone who has anything to chip in, can freely do so in the comments..
Also, all relevant questions will be duly answered in the comments to my best of knowledge

Bro what do you think of FBA


Amazon account


ordering my stuff on AliExpress and selling it off on Amazon


I want to gather enough capital before going into ur kinda thing fully

If you wanna do that, I'd advise you source from a different site with faster shipping times...E.g. Homedepot...

Or dropship on ebay from Amazon

Aliexpress delivery times are too long for successful and sustainable Amazon DS business.. Your seller account will get shut down and banned.

If this posts gets lots of engagement, I may decide to open a new thread and post a concrete tutorial on this from activation of Payment Gateway, Product research, FB ads, Removing limitations from PayPal.. to withdrawing your money to your bank account....

Hi, can we connect on WhatsApp 08151097447. Want to ask specific questions on cpms and ad budgets.

We are also Dropshipping from Nigeria, targeting epacket countries. Everything is set up but sales not yet consistent (due to low budget for Facebook ads).

Also we need just 1 or 2 person interested in partnership to run our dropshipping store. Note we will only require funding for Adverts till we break even and start reinvesting.
There's money for order fulfillment, just the advertising aspect. Product research, advertisement strategy,growth model already in place. The shop is all up and running with a few sales.

If interested, chat me up here 08151097447 and we will address any questions you may have concerning our store.
Please not for people that want to learn to dropshipping, just partnership. Thanks

How long did it take you to start making profit from the business?.

When did you start?.

How do you handle the logistics involved?.

How much did it cost you to set up the business?.

And your Ads?... How much do you spend on Ads?.

How do you price your products?... And what platforms do you source from?.

I understand your are a busy person and I sincerely apologize if my questions seem too many. But most people say dropshipping is impossible from Nigeria, so meeting a fairly successful person in the business might be a once in a life time something. grin

Thanks.
Re: Anyone Dropshipping Successfully From Nigeria? by yizzyweezy: 9:03am On Jun 04, 2019
How long did it take you to start making profit from the business?.

About 3-4 Weeks

When did you start?.

2 years ago

How do you handle the logistics involved?.

I ship with epacket..My supplier handles all that...I don't have to stock the product. I have a good rapport with my suppliers on Aliexpress and they ship all my orders worldwide, quickly and it gets delivered within 10-15 days

How much did it cost you to set up the business?.

$700+

And your Ads?... How much do you spend on Ads?.

$3-4k Monthly

How do you price your products?... And what platforms do you source from?.

I source from Aliexpress (sometimes, banggoods for faster shipping and specific products)

I price my products such that I make at least $25 profit per sale, due to the rising cost of FB ads, as I average $10- $20 cost per sale

Thank you.

It sounds like you are spending a lot on Ads. Did you start spending that much from the beginning?.

Started with $400 on ads, I spent $150 testing 6 different products on Day 1...two were promising, so i doubled down on those with $250 spend (over 3-4 days) and then I made some profit, so I just reinvested the profit till i got to spending $100-120 daily ..

That was a very smart business strategy. Thanks for that golden nugget.
I am going to stick to your thread, hopeful that you'd find time from your schedule for a tutorial.


What about the name of your website/shop?... Is it something generic like 'classic jewelry collections' or something centered around a brand like 'Jumia'?.
Re: Anyone Dropshipping Successfully From Nigeria? by colyx1(m): 9:37am On Jun 04, 2019
Dropshipping biz as I have researched is quite promising. But you have to put alot of time and money to achieve maximum result. I decided to venture into dropshipping this year, although still working on it. I used paystack as the payment platform, will integrate Paypal soon. The site is up already but fb ads and some little issues is limiting me (funds). I need mentorship from the house as regards reliable logistics company(shipping from China to Nigeria). Shubreel(dot)com is the site. I will appreciate review.

Your website looks quite professional. It looks like you spent a lot building it.

Your pricing displays in Naira, are you exclusively targeting the Nigerian market?.

Why Amazon btw? Amazon FBA means fulfillment by Amazon...Meaning you'd have to ship your product to Amazon's warehouse and they do the fulfillment..

You, dropshipping unto Amazon isn't Amazon FBA, to do that all you need is an Amazon seller account..

I don't do Amazon dropshipping due to the little margins and stringent policies and the fact that you don't have access to the emails or contacts of people who buy from you.

My advise will be to save up enough cash and follow some pretty good individuals in the field. The likes of Rito (Flying start online), Franklin Hatchett, Gabriel St-Germain, Chris Waller(King Comm), Nick peroni.

Dropshipping is an awesome way to earn passive income online, but the one that has made me more money is affiliate marketing in Nigeria

On Ebay there are two modes of Payment, you as a seller can offer.

1. PayPal
2. Ebays checkout merchant (Not eligible for everyone)
With EBay's checkout merchant, Ebay handles all the payment activities and transfers the money to either your PayPal, Apple Pay, etc account..

Not all accounts are eligible for the EBay's checkout merchant... therefore, PayPal becomes mandatory..

It's no news that dropshipping is getting really really popular in Nigeria, with the likes of Degenius and the rest actively promoting it.

I know every one successfully involved in Dropshipping wouldn't be active on this platform, definitely. I'm doing good in dropshipping and hardly am I here on Nairaland... I only come when I need to exchange my funds.

I remember when I used to scout Nairaland for chicken change, lol...I feel I can help give back to the community and my fellow hustlers..

I'd like to know how many of you are GENUINELY successful with dropshipping, and maybe we can share one or two ideas that could help those planning on venturing into this business model.
