I am curious if anyone has had any luck with Canadian Print on Demand drop shippers for t-shirts and hoodies? I've been working with teelaunch and it has been an abmissmal experience. There is so much basic information lacking on the app that the majority of products I have created will have to be redone or will be automatically fullfilled and shippied through the USA (with absolutely NO warning), something I did NOT want. Their response...basically oops...smh
I am incredibly frustrated right now...
Hi, guys, recently I have read many posts on Facebook and see many are hiding or ending their listings from China. Some of say dropshipping business will be down due to the China New Year. How do you guys think of it and how to make sales during this time?
Nick here from Shopify.
Really good question. To add more context and information to you I spoke to the Oberlo team about this for you. They mentioned that many of the CN factories stop working from the beginning of January and come back to work at the end of February (~ 2 months). Many of Oberlo's CN Suppliers will have Spring Festival from the beginning of February until the middle of February (Feb 4 - Feb 10) and will not be working at all during these days. Additionally, the suppliers should get more stock for best selling products before the factories go on hiatus. All of the above reasons will affect order fulfillment, order delivery, dispute and direct message response times in Oberlo Marketplace. This only applies to Chinese suppliers. Western suppliers should not be affected.
Somebody asked about this in the Oberlo community forum before where the Oberlo team directly discussed it further with them which you can see here. A third party article within one of the responses of that forum has lots of good information also which I want to highlight here.
I hope this helps and sheds some more light on this for you. Please don't hesitate to ask should you have any other questions.
All the best, Nick
P.S. I will move your post to the Wholesale and Dropshipping topic rather than Build a Business which it is currently in. It will be better seen by other store owners who might have experienced this previously and can offer advice on that aspect of it.
The Chinese traditional new year is 4th Feb 2019. So people in the factory starting to go home since 20th Jan 2019 and they will come back around 15th Feb 2019. But there are many goods may not have stock until the end of Feb. Not only the workers, the courier service also will pause around 10 days. Thus if you are dropshipping from China you should plan in advance.
We helped a few fashion clothes sellers fulfill the orders from China to EU and USA, the fashion worker come home from Januaray and come back at the end of Feb, based on this case we already suggested the sellers to order some more stock for hotsale goods in advance, then shut off the facebook and instagram ads from 20th Jan to 10th Feb. After 10th Feb, the international and domestic courier service will start to work and we can help them fulfill the orders that have stock in our warehouse, once the workers come back to the factory the dropshipping business will work normally again.
So if you are dropshipping from China, you need to confirm with the vacation time with the suppliers in advance, then take a break during the Chinese Spring Festival, at the end of Feb everything will be work normally.
I am having problem with my CSV file. From my wholesale i got CSV, this file have about 16k. products, but I will use just 2000 products. CSV feed is online. Which way is the most easiest upload it in shopify platform? Which program can help me do it? Maybe some company or specialist working with it and looking new job?
First row of my CSV file starts:
Link,SKU,Title,Category,Image 1,Image 2,Image 3,Image 4,Image 5,Image 6,Image 7,Image 8,Image 9,Image 10,Image 11,Properties,Description,Color,Weight,Image 12,Product_title,Stock,B2B price,EAN,Parcel_or_pallet,Number_of_packages,HTML_description,Gender,Diameter,Size,Brand,RRP,Shipping_time
Is that any chance you can email us the details? So we can look into it further.
You can refer Appfreaker Supply, Appfreaker supply is US based supplier. And It provides different product categories too.
There are a few smaller stores who are interested in carrying out product, but would need us to lower our wholesale pricing to do so.
We’ll probably go ahead and meet the lower price, because we’re interested in testing wholesale more, but I was curious if there was anything else we could negotiate in exchange. I was thinking something along the lines of product reviews, but I’m not sure how that would work exactly.
I'm Lizzy, one of the Gurus on the support team at Shopify.
First of all I think this is a fantastic idea. Asking for non-monetary value to compensate for a discount is a great way to get your product in front of a wider customer base while developing new business relationships. Depending on your business type and product, there are a few different ways you could use this to your advantage. What sort of marketing tactics are you using so far, that you could boost with these arrangements?
Your idea of reviews is a good place to start. You can create stickers or additions to your packaging that displays your website and invites customers to review the product after they've purchased. The stores could also display your website and business information on any noticeboards or displays around your product that they have. The store owners themselves can contribute reviews to your site too.
Would you say your product displays well visually? If so, encourage these businesses to send you photos of your product on display at their locations and use these on social media. This would then work as cross promotion for you and them. It looks good on your social media to show your product growing and appearing in new locations, while sharing their business too.
You can also request that they share features of your product on any social media they have. This would encourage sales and increase awareness of your product to their audience. Instagram stories is a really effective tool for this. They could create hype in the days leading up to when your product will be at their stores. Once they have the product they can showcase some of the top features. Of course you can discuss with them what is best to showcase. Again, you can use this content on your own channels as well.
The last thing I would look into is the business themselves. Do they host events at their location? Are they involved with other business in their communities? Would they allow you to host a pop-up shop at their location instead of reselling your product? What sort of unique advantages do they have, that you could use to promote or distribute your product further?
I hope these suggestions help you to come up with a strategy that best suits your business. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions about what I've said.
I help to run an ecommerce site where we sell our products using Shopify.
However, we have several challenges I need to address better integrate Shopify into how we work some of them as follows:
Trade customers currently order by email or phone, we want to change this to Shopify, but they have different pricing schemes and they can sometimes cause inventory issues to us due to the size of some of the orders.
Is it possible to open a seperate Shopify portal that allows access to their prices and is still linked to our inventory?
How should I go about setting up the portal for these type of customers?
We also provide a 'drop shipping' facility to some of these clients, we have faced challenges splitting the invoice between our customer and their customer. Is it better to have the seperate portal or use an App like receiptify to add onto our existing site?
Accounting, we currently duplicate every invoice and customer detail into quickbooks causing wasted valuable resource time. How can we use Shopify to help reduce this by using it to hold all of our transactions required to produce accounting records considering the different customers we have and different methods they use to buy: web, phone, email, trade shows / retail / cash?
For the first issue you can look into https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/sell-online/wholesale/channel
This may solve your problem by opening a new chanel/portal. The inventory is synck with the store and you can set different pricing rules.
This is for Plus customers, has some limitations but can be the right tool for you.
Hope it helps
We see this as a pretty common issue for those that want to sell B2B dropship and use Shopify as their Order Management System. As mentioned by Mircea, Shopify Plus helps accomplish this a bit better but for standard Shopify users it is a challenge.
We have solved this for many of our suppliers in our dropship network by setting up what we call "Shopify as a Supplier" in which we add a B2B layer/channel on top of Shopify to automate the inventory sync and ordering for their drophsip partners... while keeping Shopify as their main OMS and B2C management needs.
Let me know if you'd like to hop on a demo or discuss. Drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you Travis and Mircea,
I appreciate both of your feedback.
Travis I will take you up on your offer!
My first sale included an Oberlo item I sold for $16.95 that cost me $8.02. My customer's shipping label from the supplier in China list value in USD as $6.00. The customer was not happy to see the margin. Is this common for Oberlo shipments?
Hi Folks, I run a coffee store and we're looking to design some merchandise. Any recommendations for a drop shipper of mugs, tees etc?
