    Hey Sarah thanks so much for your advice. You have been so helpful. Would you mind taking a look at my store and telling me what you think?

    Great video. I'm so tired of hearing literally everything is saturated. That's like saying starting ANY business is saturated and just give it all to Amazon. People just want an easy formula to make money.

    It's taken me longer than expected to really learn WordPress and get my sites going but it's part of the journey.

    Always love your words Sarah! People need to wake up and stop trying to do what's easy! This takes work, real hard work. If you're not willing to put in the time and effort into this then you may as well not even try. Sacrifices must be made!

    Tell you the truth I have been buying stuff from local sellers with exact same product a cheap Chinese ones, with markup, because I could held him liable for it. So yeah you find them on ebay, but you go buy now if the description makes sense.

    Best Advice!!! People need to stop focusing on the negative and focus on bettering yourself and your business!! The same time they take to post a negative comment can be time spent on upscaling their marketing tactics, website and product selection!! โ™ฅ๏ธ Great video!!

    Sarah, you can't imagine how right you're about people asking you "how long it'll take to earn money" and "how much minimum is enough to invest" . I get that question all the time unfortunately from my wife, which really isn't helping. These people have 0 knowledge of what a business is(just generally) and what it actually requires of you. The business isn't some separate entity. If the business fails, YOU FAIL. The business will progress the same way YOU PROGRESS. The business IS YOU!
    They thing business is like a 9-5 where you go in to work your 8 hours and you get the money at the end of the month.
    Some people are just clueless…

    As always, thank you so much Sarah! I'm super impressed with the level of research behind this video, especially related to the UPU. Three days ago (12/3/19), Shopify reported sales of $2.9 billion for BFCM 2019 across all their merchants. This is insane considering 2018 sales were $1.8 billion. That is a MASSIVE increase year-over-year. Yes Amazon is a beast but Shopify (and dropshipping) is very much alive and well!

    Thank you Sarah crispy! Iโ€™ve been following you for the past 3 years. You always have great content. I watch a lot of YouTube videos about Dropshipping. You are definitely my first choice. Your subjects are far different and more relevant than other channels. All I have to say is more, more more. Loved your video on how you got started with video games. I had my whole family watch it. The all really liked it. Keep doing what your doing. Started my first store off your course April 2019. I then hooked up with Adrian Morrison off of one of your webinars. I get all my usable information from you 2. Thank you many times in a row.

    The reason people claim a higher priced store is a rip off is because they themselves lack moral integrity.

    Just because you found the same product at a lower price somewhere else does not mean you got ripped off. Sure, you may feel like you got ripped off, but contrary to popular belief: Feelings do not equal factual truth! You can feel that 2 + 2 = 5 all you want but 2 + 2 will always and forever equal 4!

    You saw a product you either wanted and or needed and chose to pay the price posted for that product. No one held a gun to your head and forced to to buy the product. No one stood next to you and your computer or cell phone, and pressured you into making the purchase.

    The only person pressuring you to click the buy button was you. Therefore, if you in fact were ripped off, it was you that ripped you off. Accusing someone else for ripping off you when you in fact did the ripping off, is both morally and legally wrong. If you filed such a charge and it was found out, you are the only one that will be charged with a crime. The crime of filing a false police report. However, a smart alec district attorney might decide to charge you for ripping off you, just for the sake of adding to your reality check lesson.

    Hey Sarah I think itโ€™s rather daunting for us that just wanna learn something valuable from you to keep hearing about the nasty comments on your videos. Itโ€™s no fun and it only encourages persons that have made up their mind that โ€œdrop shipping is badโ€ to continue making terrible comments.

    Dear Sarah, I feel dumber than a box of rocks for this question, but I have watched many of your videos, I know this can work, I used to sell stuff on Ebay, (100% rated), I am reading your ebook..BUT: every time I type in Shopify.com to see peoples stuff for sale, like Amazon.com, or search for something, like Amazon, all I get is Shopify.com โ€˜how to set up the store linkโ€. I canโ€™t find the stores….what am I missing? Also, if I type in your camera lens mug, all I get are sellers on Amazon. I donโ€™t want to set up an Amazon store, I want to do exactly what you are doing. What am I misunderstanding about this whole thing? Is it some wierd link because I live in the USA? Thanks ahead and sorry to be so dumb. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I recently bought your dropshipping course, definitely lots of value for a newbie like me! I'm officially launching my store the 12th of january; I'll be doing all sorts of experiments on the meantime! I made the decision to make it work, so I have the definitive determination to do so no matter what ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sarah, thank you so much for the real talk and the inspiration. There's been a few times in the course of learning about dropshipping, building the store, making the ads, and learning the platforms that I simply thought about giving it up and calling it quits. This video came just in time. Thanks again.

    How many of you have tried drop shipping? Did you make any money? I've tried it many times but never even broke even. I know some are successful but whatever their secret to success, it's not being shared. Some magical secret that she can't even put into words.

    Thank you, Sarah for yet another great video. I've noticed the AliExpress Standard shipping method too but I've no idea how to pass the tracking information to my customer if I use this method, since you'll have to log into AliExpress to track. Do you have any advice on this, please?

    You are really resonating with me. I've been doing everything you're recommending.. jumped in and started a store knowing that I'd probably fail but happy to do so if it means that I'll get a step closer to success. I bought a course on dropshipping in the middle of November, I implemented a store and have 9 sales from the last 3 days totaling $176 and I'm learning more about Facebook ads every day. People want it easy… thankfully it's not easy, or else everyone would have it. I want it, and I'll get it no matter how hard it is because I'm determined!

    I don't think a lot of people understand that just about all stores order wholesale products and mark them up to make a profit. This includes convenient stores, hardware stores, liquor stores, clothing stores, grocery stores, gas stations etc. Dropshipping is pretty much the same thing except that the store is online and the wholesaler/manufacturer is willing to send single items directly to the customer on the store owner's behalf – instead of the store owner buying and holding inventory.

    Doesn't AliExpress Standard Shipping use ePacket to the US? Whenever I ordered something via AliExpress Srandard Shipping it would always come in the envelope that said "ePacket" on it, and it had the ePacket tracking number too.

    "Why would customers buy from your business when they can go to some other place and buy it?"

    That same question can be applied to every kind of business. For example, coffee! Why would someone go to Starbucks when they can make their own coffee? Why would other startups try to run their own coffee shop when customers can just go to Starbucks? The competition does not matter. It's all about how the product is sold. Impulse buys are a strong selling feature, but there are other factors to consider, too. Things like convenience, quality, price, and so on. Sure you can make your own coffee and save money, but Starbucks is fast and in a convenient location. Sure you could go to Starbucks, but maybe the local coffee shop has your favorite coffee that Starbucks doesn't have. Competition is always there, but that doesn't mean you can't make your own success despite selling the same thing other business are selling.

    if an ad has a person's face on facebook ads, will it get banned? I've been taking photos of models a lot lately and then read a comment about facebook not allowing faces on the ad. How do you get around that? Crop it?
