Here are the answers to our most common questions:
How does DropShop Work?
DropShop builds its customers a personalized website stocked with winning products related to your store theme that are picked by our hand-built algorithm within 24 hours of signing-up.
Depending on which package you choose upon sign-up, you will be given a custom-made website designed personally for you, along with products that are selected based on seasonal trends and consumer product ratings to boost your store’s performance. Worried about seasonal trends and demand shifts? Fear not, DropShop will automatically update your store with the most popular products on the market through its uniquely built algorithms.
While DropShop stores are built to automate the transaction and shipping process between you and the customer to make your experience as easy as possible, you can choose to manually add your own products and edit your pre-built website. We highly recommend that our clients run their own advertisements, as it is the main factor that will drive customers and thus sales to your DropShop. If this is too time-intensive for you, we encourage you to use DropShop Advertising; simply provide us with a marketing budget, and we’ll create, run, and manage your ads.
Can I Use Product Pictures from My Supplier?
Yes. Many dropshippers use their supplier’s product pictures in their own stores. However, if you choose to manually source some of your own products, we highly advise that you remove any branded names, watermarks, or logos from their product images. This is to avoid your store customers from seeing any unprofessional images that could associate your store with a low-quality product. It also doesn’t hurt to reach out to the supplier and ask.
How Long Does It Take to Make the First Sale?
The time frame is truly dependent on you. We have given you all the tools aside from marketing, so with a little bit of time invested in creating an ad and running it on social media platforms, you can start generating cash flow in days.
What is the shipping timeframe after a product is sold on my site?
The items will be shipped directly from the suppliers to your client. We highly recommend that you list your shipping policy and communicate it clearly in your online store. Furthermore, we recommend offering free shipping, which will act as a marketable advantage and the customer will likely be more flexible with delivery times.
How Can I Change Currency in My Store?
There is a plug-in already established for you to change the currency in your store.
How should I price my products?
It varies, but we highly recommend pricing the products at least 50% more than the cost. When a customer sees a higher priced item, they will associate that product with better quality and will be more willing to buy it.

How much money do I need to start my dropshipping site?
All you need to start is the cost of subscription. That will provide you with a customized store, preloaded products, and DropShop service to run your site and manage your orders. Just a quick heads up: Before dropshipping, make sure that you have the capital for “overhead” which could be the result if your client returns an item and the suppliers have a no return policy.
How long does it take to receive my store from DropShop?
We guarantee that you will receive your store within 24 hours. Maybe even sooner. We want to see all of our customers succeed, and that starts with building you a high-quality store as quickly as possible. Currently, our main marketing strategy is word of mouth and limited social media marketing; we hope that if you enjoy using our service that you will share it with others. It’s a win-win relationship between us and our clients!
Why would DropShop go through all of the trouble of creating and curating stores for other people just for a small cut when they could create stores and make more money themselves?
We feel our time is best allocated to helping people building dropshipping stores with us acting as their facilitators. We find creating and managing stores at scale to be more effective and time-efficient for both us and our customers than simply building our own store. In essence, we are diversifying our efforts to a number of businesses, which allows us to decrease our risk and simultaneously increase customer profits. Our mindset is: if our customers do well, we do well. Thus, we want the best for them and work hard to build unique, logistically automated stores for them to market.
