Frequently Asked Questions
When I order my site, how long will it take to get delivered to me?
Up to 7 Days, Sometimes within 8hours.
Can you give me an example of how I make money from a Dropshipping website?
EG. You sell an item on this site for $25. You enter the customers details in your wholesale account (a regular customer account) and pay the cost of the item eg $5, then the wholesaler sends the item direct to your customer with free shipping and tracking provided. $20 profit. Packaging is sent direct to your customer contains no invoice, logo or pricing details. Margins vary from site to site, we have some high profit margin sites which will net you over $100 per sale…but these tend to be lower sales volume sites…
How do you process orders on the dropshipping sites?
All dropshipping links are provided for each product with the biggest dropshipping wholesaler worldwide, you are directed to the purchase page for each product you sell on your new site.
How long does it take for items to arrive once a customer’s order has been processed?
This has been trialled for some 12 months across several platforms and items arrive in the US, Europe and Australia around 10 days, sometimes just 5days, although the supplier specify much longer delivery times to cover themselves against complaints. Because tracking is provided you can provide this to your customer and put them at ease….so there are no significant issues if their package is late.
How much Work is required to run the site?
The only work on your side is to place the orders….about 30seconds per sale. If you do 10 sales per day that’s typically $100-200 profit for 5 minutes work. We have experimented with automated ordering plugins in the past and these have caused enormous problems with botched orders and incorrect details. It is still a simple process….. you enter your customer details, the supplier sends the item direct to your customer. You make most of the profit!
How about Payment Gateways, is PayPal the best?
Paypal is the only gateway we use on our sites. This is the most trusted payment gateway worldwide and customers feel most comfortable when checking out via PayPal. Other gateways can lose you customers particularly if they are entering credit card info….With the PayPal payment gateway the customer doesn’t even need a PayPal account to complete payment. They can pay via PayPal with any credit or debit card without any problems or anxiety about entering their details because PayPal is such a secure and trusted site.
Can I buy multiple sites at a reduced price?
Of course…it is good to get started with 3 sites in different niches and centralise your marketing efforts to see what is working and what is not…when you find what suits you in terms of social media marketing, you can duplicate, scale up and reap the benefits of a full time income with no real barriers to growth.
Can you make changes to the sites or add and remove products?
Your site is stocked with the best selling products by wholesale data so there is no need to add more. Best to concentrate on marketing your site to generate traffic and sales before you think about making any changes. That said, you can add new products manually by duplicating an existing product in wordpress and changing the photo and description then you can save the link to your supplier doc – the word doc with the supplier links on it. This is also an awesome chrome plugin for copying photos and product descriptions from the supplier https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/righttocopy/plmcimdddlobkphnofejmeidjblideca This is how to duplicate products and then you can change your photo and description from there.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFt7tO3W8Tk You can also delete products in wordpress if you don’t want to sell them anymore.. You can also use suppliers on fiverr.com to make cosmetic changes to your new site some providing multiple changes starting at $5. We do stress not to get caught up with how beautiful your site is. A simple layout works best and your time is best spent marketing to drive traffic and sales rather than anything else..we don’t even recommend adding or removing products… Driving traffic is paramount!
How do you deal with Customer Service issues and refunds?
Any rare issues… the wholesaler refunds you quickly without having to return the item because they don’t want the headache of receiving returns ect for relatively low value items. This enables you to give a full or partial refund to your customer through PayPal without them having returns either. The reputation of the wholesaler is exposed and they are willing to do anything to maintain their feedback rating. That said, customer service issues are rare.
How is it that you can offer free hosting permanently?
We have sold a lot of sites over the years and to be honest it is just an easier transfer process when we keep the site on our hosting. Also you have the added benefit of having no ongoing expenses..no other website vendors offer this..! All you need is a free godaddy account, you don’t need to register a domain, you don’t need hosting, you don’t need to pay godaddy anything… We just need your godaddy customer number and the email address associated with your godaddy account. This allows us to transfer the domain and site into your name so you own it! In addition to this we provide full cpanel access to the hosting for your site which will be with https://www.turnkeywebhosting.com/. Alternatively, if you have your own hosting cpanel we can migrate the site there free of charge, all we need is your login. Not a Problem!
How do I get my site generating traffic and sales?
We provide a social media marketing plan to help you get enough targeted traffic to convert to sales..you are targeting impulse customers and purchases so it is an easy sell once customers arrive to your site…The Facebook Marketing strategy allows you join 6,000 FB groups without using your own personal Facebook account…this is a good start.
