If you are serious about starting a Drop Shipping online business then there are a few things that you will need - we like to call them resources.
Below will find a few of the resources that we recommend you take advantage of when building your drop shipping website as you learn how to build a successful Drop Shipping Store.
If you want to start your own online drop shipping business, The first thing that You will need is your own website domain name.
There are a few tools that you can use to search for the availability of a website domain name, And we're going to take a look at a few of these right now.
There are literally thousands of different domain name registrars out there. The company that you choose to use to register your domain name is entirely your choice.
One of the most popular and well-known is of course Go Daddy and can be found at: www.Godaddy.com
For any online business, It is absolutely critical to ensure that you choose the right website hosting for your e-commerce or drop shipping website.
Choosing the web host can lead to a painfully slow loading website, angry customers and even lost sales.
There is only one website hosting company that we personally use and so would actually recommend to our customers: Siteground.
We noticed a 60% increase in our website loading speed once we moved our website to site ground. Their customer service both before and after becoming a customer is excellent, and their reputation within the industry of web hosting is 2nd to none.
If you want a fast loading website with excellent support should you run into any issues, then I would strongly recommend being just like us and becoming a site ground customer.
Our ultimate platform of choice ( And also the main one that we use on our Drop Shipping How to training course) would have to be the Wordpress platform.
Although ordpress was originally set up as a blogging platform, thanks to the possibility of using add-ons / plug ins such as 'Woocommerce', we are able to extend the functionality of WordPress and turn it into a fully fledged e-commerce platform that has all the features you could possibly need from an E-commerce Website.
Another It is actually 100% free to download and use, unlike the likes of Shopify that will incur a recurring lifetime monthly fee
The last important element for any online business is of course suppliers
We have all heard the horror stories and possibly even experienced first-hand a supplier that has taken the money paid and then run off into the sunset never to be seen again.
Having this experience happened to you could leave you thousands of dollars out of pocket - and could even cripple your attempt at running an online business.
The best suppliers out there will have a rating system similar to that of eBay - where you are able to leave feedback for the suppliers and inform others about your experience and also warn others if need be.
The suppliers found below all offer this feedback system, and even have betting systems in place where staff actually visit the premises of the company to verify that their details are correct.
