After all the work and money spent on setting up the accounts and websites, if you open a shopify store, youre going toi find that the same manufacturers who are dropshipping for you are ALREADY selling direct to the public on ebay, Amazon, Etsy, etc. I had gotten a "hot product alert email from Amazon seller central about some girls apparel that was selling like hot cakes on their website.
I found those same dresses on the oberlo/shopify catalog, and I looked at my cost for the dress. The dress from the Chinese factory on amazon was $2.50/$2.00 shipping. The same dress on the wholesale oberlo/shopify catalog was $6.75 or something like that. (from the same manufacturer!) So, if I had listed that dress on amazon thru my shopify store, the retail price would have been like $25.00/$5.00 shipping!
That puts MY item at $25.50 higher than the competition!
I didn't even bother going on with it. I didn't even sell ONE item with my shopify store, and I did ALL KINDS of marketing on facebook and amazon.com..
