Our most successful entrepreneurs of 2018: dropshipping store owners
Yan from France: from 0 to $1358.41 in 52 days
Yan is a medical student with quite a long history of eCommerce efforts.
To get extra money to pay for his studies, he tried blogging, creating an online course, and launching other types of profit-oriented websites. But, these ventures were time-consuming and demanded an expert knowledge, so he had to give them up.
Luckily, at some point, he got himself familiar with the dropshipping business model. He quickly understood he can run it even without any background experience.
It took Yan 2 weeks to assemble the store himself with the help of AliDropship plugin and set it up. Right after the launch of his first Instagram promotion, he got his first sale!
In about 3 weeks from the start of his marketing activities, he already made $442.55 in revenue. And, in the first 1,5 months of his store operation, Yan made $1358.41. It motivated him to think about making one more store, so he bought another plugin license.
As Yan says, even though it’s not a super high profit, he’s happy to have made some money from his very first month in dropshipping. In his own words, in his first 45 days of dropshipping, he made more than in 2 years of blogging, and his life has changed completely.
Pirn from Estonia: $10,000 monthly revenue with a 0 experience
Pirn is a passionate traveller who hates 9-to-5 jobs.
He always knew that online business is the future, so he had plans to open his own eCommerce store.
He even knew what niche to choose: he wanted to launch an adult online shop, but he couldn’t deal with the common stock issues because of a lack of money.
That’s why he was thrilled to learn about the opportunity of getting a WooCommerce dropshipping store. And, when he started using AliDropship Woo for this purpose, he felt a huge difference immediately. As he explains it, this solution let him fulfil the orders and add new products quickly and easily.
Now, Pirn runs 2 dropshipping stores with more than $10,000$ in revenue for one store.
Thanks to the smart solutions he uses, the business management only takes him about 2 hours per day. As he puts it, the store has opened the doors to do anything he want. Pirn wants to seize this opportunity to make his dream come true: to get ‘retired’ by the age of 25.
Asif from India: $52k revenue store with $2,000+ monthly profit
Asif is a very positive-minded person who believes that each man is the architect of his own fate.
Since 2003, he’s been exploring the ways to make money online. He started with affiliate marketing, and then tried monetizing websites and blogs through AdSense and Clickbank. Still, the most exciting idea for him was to sell items without the troubles of keeping stock.
So, surely, he got very happy when he found Yaros’ dropshipping journey on forum. Asif got really inspired, and bought AliDropship plugin to follow in Yaros’ footsteps.
To prepare for this business road, he subscribed to our newsletter and tailored our recommendations to his store specifics. And, just in 3 days after launching the store, Asif got his first sale thanks to an Instagram shoutout!
Now, he manages 4 dropshipping stores that bring a regular profit.
As Asif says, they account for more than 60% of his income sources, and this, surely, is a blessing.

Alan from China: monthly profit over $17,000

He used to work as a Managing Director in a large-scale real estate agency in Singapore. After having been in this position for 13 years, he got tired of this business and decided to pursue his dream in eCommerce.

After one month of running this store, he got his first sale. Up to this day, Alan remembers this happy and satisfying feeling of a hard work finally paying off.
In July, 2018, the monthly income of his store was $17,080.04.
And, Alan says that apart from the money, dropshipping business gives him more time to spend with his family – the luxury he didn’t have in the past.
