Because of the recent events, everyone is struck with a worldwide problem. No one can tell for sure when things will go back to normal. While we wait for everything to return as it was, right now countless amounts of people are working from the comfort of their own home.

Olya, you are amazing.

Olagbemide taiwo February 2, 2019 11:09:34

Your content always inspired me. Good job done keep the great work up.

I want to start my own drop shipping store very soon and I will like to use facebook as a tool to promote it.
My question now are

1. Do I need to create another facebook account or to connect it to my existing facebook page.
2. Am from Nigeria due to our reputation online under the team section should I indicate my bio as the CEO of the store .

Please any useful tip I will be grateful
Thanks

saggat December 5, 2019 2:40:45

create a new facebook page very important
you do not need to indicate your bio on your page since you are dropshipping.
use banners as your facebook page identity.
stop procrastination! just do it and ask questions later.

Anna C April 4, 2019 16:50:35

This is great. I am inspired to sell reusable eco friendly products. I tried to run an ad about a reusable item that is eco friendly and good for the environment but my ad is not approved by Facebook for the reason that my page is not authorised to run ads related to politics or an issue of national importance, “environment” being the issue of national importance here. I have been advised by Facebook to authorise my page but to do that, I have to be USA citizen residing in USA, which I am not. So how do I go about this? Greatly appreciate your advise on this.

Olga L. April 5, 2019 9:22:19

Thank you for your feedback!

Try writing directly to the Facebook support, and explain them your situation. Generally, they are quite helpful, and can advise you a way out.

Also, try creating new types of ads that don’t mention the words “environment” or “eco-friendly” – try “green”, “nature-friendly” or “sustainable” instead.

Ann May 7, 2019 8:48:21

Fantastic news from Olga, you make things easier for us. I will join AliDropship business very soon.

Julius Mpundu May 15, 2019 17:07:47

I have been trying to learn and do business on my own but the problem which I am facing is shipping,I have account with AliExpress which I am a Gold member now, therefore if you buy something it will take almost a two month to reach your through post and to some sellers if you follow up some on your parcel there response is very bad.so how can I do my drop ship business with my situation?

Olga L. May 16, 2019 11:05:30

Hi, thank you for your question!

Try picking the items that have ePacket delivery option: on average, it takes 7-15 days. You can learn more details here: https://alidropship.com/best-and-cheapest-way-to-ship-internationally/#subtitle-2

As an alternative, if ePacket is not available in your country, you can try targeting the clients who live abroad. You are not limited by location, so you are free to work with buyers from any place that has good delivery terms.

Olga thanks for the content, I want to join AliDropship business but I want to know if I can run the business from Nigeria in West Africa because I’m based in Nigeria. Is it possible to run AliDropship from here? Thanks as I wait for your response

Olga L. August 20, 2019 10:42:49

Hi, thank you for your question!

Yes, you can run your business from any country, and you can target any foreign buyers with it if you want to. Please, read this article to learn more: https://alidropship.com/international-dropshipping-guide/

Your research is awesome and very helpful for all newbies. Can you please do same research for office furniture. Because i have a office and home furniture eCommerce store woodtechmobel.com . I want shift it on drop shipping. Thanks

Olga L. October 15, 2019 9:05:47

Hi, thank you for your feedback!

The issue with furniture is that it’s a large and heavy product type that is not really good for international shipping.
Instead, you might choose the niche of office stationery and supplies. These items are lightweight, easy to ship, catchy, and closely related to your current business.

Justin October 21, 2019 12:35:55

Very rich article here, hoping to join this business soon

Who is going to wait 40 days for an A4 folder?

Olga L. January 8, 2020 4:35:57

Hi, thank you for your comment!

People in different countries across the globe have varying levels of access even to basic goods. Therefore, for some of them, online shopping is the only way to source the items that aren’t readily available in local brick-and-mortar stores.
