boss am interested in starting but dnt know if 20k could get me started?

Bro this won't get you anywhere oo.. If you have a mentor, you can start with roughly $500. But if you are new and have no mentor, those tops guys usually recommend around $1000- $2000 to get things started since you're going to be testing products to know which works and which doesn't - so obviously you're going to be spending some money upfront for such . Dropshipping is real business!

$600-800 for a start

Thing is you're gonnna lose $150-200 initially, as you'd be testing the waters and diff products as well as adset to find out what works... It's advised to spend $25-50 testing a product... You may end up testing 4-6 before finding a solid winner...

You'd start making your $150 loss back, when you scale on your already found winner...And can make your loss back in one day, 3 days or lesser depending on how fast you scale..

So don't think the whole $700 is gonna be invested... PayPal may hold your funds for 21 days(as a new seller), stripe will take 7 Business days to send the money to your account, so within that period, you'd have to use your personal cash to fulfill orders while awaiting the payment from your payment providers

Exactly! Thanks for letting everyone on this. Dropshipping isn't a kid business. Bro, how can I reach you? Let's connect. I have some wonderful ideas to share with you.

Well, I hardly go to WhatsApp.. And I want everyone to gain some knowledge from this thread... We've hidden information too much... If I do decide to make a guide concerning this, then I'd create a WhatsApp group specifically for showing individuals how to create a PayPal acct and how to withdraw their funds..

In fact, I'm planning on doing a 30-Day challenge where I create a new stripe acct, new PayPal and take a new store to 8-10k in 30 days and will document every single step on here and on YouTube...

Please do this brother... Most of us don't mind following you bumber to bumper. I'm happy to know you have experience in this already. We all are going to ride on your experience. This way, we're not going to be making alot of mistakes in the journey.

Yeah
But since you’re into it already I can leverage on ya experience. I don’t mind paying something... mentoring kind of ...

Information overload too plenty for yt

Honestly speaking, I don't think I will have the time to do that(Mentoring or Store Creation). If at all I'd have to do that, then I may get a little bit pricey, as it means I'd have to sacrifice 3-8hours from my time to create you a fully functional store which involves a shopify store and working payment processors..

I may have to create another thread on Nairaland concerning that, when I'm chanced so everyone can benefit from that...



I'm thinking of starting a new shopify store from scratch and taking it to $3k in a month, while detailing all the processes here on Nairaland, and you guys just have to follow suite. I'd record a video when it gets to store creation, if there's enough time..

I think this will help a lot of people on here

Hey Bro thanks for sharing info about this dropshipping of a thing.

My friend and I have planned to set up a shopify store at the end of this month. We've budgeted to spend around $150 for ads in our first month, and also we are also looking on dropshipping women's accessories.

Please what advice can you give to us?

Thanks a million.

Bro. I'm not saying you're not going to make sales selling women accessories but it's going to be limited. That niche and industry is somehow. There are better niches you can explore and sell products there.. We have the baby niche, kitchen tools niche, outdoor /camping niche, security niche and lots more. Basically you want to sell a product that solves a problem OR offers convenience. People will buy products like this without thinking twice if your creative and store is well set up.

That's a solid niche to be honest with you. Women spend the most amount of cash online...And I've had more success in the female niche, especially the beauty niche, than any other niche..They buy virtually anything...lolz.

$150 for ads seems really tight for this business model. I advise you save up more. Cause that alone will be the Budget you'd use for Testing products, to find what the market wants.

mimilogistics:
LLC = Limited Liability Company under US company, allied laws. If you register this, you will now have the legal right to run a legal business in the US, and with it, you can contact US Federal Inland Revenue Service to issue you EIN (Employer Identification Number) which can replace SSN or TIN.

With all that, you can now legally register an Amazon US seller account and operate as a US business....and also register with stripe legally and even PayPal to send and receive money.
can you do the llc from Nigeria?

Bro thanks for these insights. How about if we scale our budget for ads to about $300?

Also there's the issue of the payments, I already have a verified Lesotho PayPal account (daily limit has been lifted) but we are considering using a friends US PayPal account (this friend resides in the US). Reasons is that since I do not leave in Lesotho I don't want PayPal wahala when we start earning from our store.

What's your say on this?

BTW can I also hit you up on whatsapp too?

Thanks

Bro thanks for your input. We've decided to go with ladies niche. Ladies have the tendency of making impulse buys than we guys, so we're looking to capitalize on that.
BTW I think the camping niche is a great niche to explore too. These whites love camping ehnn smiley

The screenshot above is from the camping niche :-) I started a new store in the camping niche.

Yes, $300 is fair, but you'd need to be stringent with your product research method and spend less on testing. I'd be going over all that

This is totally correct. These guys you mentioned are doing great in the dropshipping business. I follow them - some other successful dropshippers I follow include Jordan Welch, Gabriel Beltran, arie scherson. Arie and Jordan free course on YouTube can get anyone started in the journey... They also have paid courses too, but I can tell anyone that if you're serious and follow their free content on YouTube.. You're going to get started on something and making sales. If anyone needs their paid courses, I have them. You can reach out

BTW, Op. Thanks for the push again! What has been stopping me is the payment processor. Can I have a guide on how you opened a verified stripe account and also the PayPal account you use.? If I can get these solved, I don't think I have any issues as regards starting the business anymore.

Side note! Dropshipping requires alot of time! At the end, it is very profitable.

can beep u as regards the courses... Interested.

Sure! Send me a message on WhatsApp so I can forward them to you bro. But I'd advice you just pick and download just one and flow with that. You don't need to jumble your brain with information overload.
