  1. Lower your head and stop looking down your nose… I can see your boogers.

  2. Hi oberlo i have a question, If someone buy something from me and refunding the money even if everything went perfect how ebay will protect me from that? how can I prove that he got the item and it was perfectly shape. And how can I refund my own money from the people I make the order with if the buyer refund from me.

  3. Is there an Oberlo or dropshipping chat room?

  4. Thank you. I'm a neophyte with e-commerce though I've had a website since 1997. Great advice regardingthe amount of time one can realistically expect to put in for a successful business. None of this hype that you can set it up and walk away and make hundreds of thousands of dollars.

  5. How can we understand u when u speak so very fast.🤷‍♀️?

  6. Very good and informative videos guys, really appreciate it for keeping it tight, visually great and to the point!

  7. Is Twitter good to advertise your items

  8. Looking at some of these comments you realize some people will complain about anything. Helpful information. Thanks!

  9. Great video! Very informative. Definitely applying these tips.

  10. Great video, great editing

  11. How to have minimum shipping days ? what could be the minimum no of shipping days from the day of order ?

  12. Why should customers use someone drops hopping store rather then let's say amazon? That's what's stuck in my head

  13. I understand how dropshipping works, but I don't understand why customers would wait for shipping from China.

  14. I have started dropshipping for two years still couldn't sale anything yet it.

  15. There are certain skills that are essential for you to truly comprehend before you tell people you’re an internet marketer. You need to know the following, inside-out, backwards and forwards. It must become second nature otherwise you will not be ready to win big.

    1.SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).
    Search engine results are the foundations for at least 70% of all online behaviour. Being able to know what moves a site up and down in the rankings is obviously a good trade to have, so learn the tricks of having a good SEO and your website will be working just how you need it to be.

    2. Pay per click marketing.
    Nothing forces money out of a marketing budget faster than an out of control PPC marketing. When caring about your clients, you need to know a lot about PPC. You need to identify and comprehend concepts like negative keywords, quality scoring, dynamic keywords and content networks.

    Analysis/analytics is the practice of turning data into action steps and conclusions like “Wow, our ROI on this keyword is great. We need to build a landing page.”

    4.Complete sentences.
    Write every day. Everyday. You need to be able to write a post like this in 30-40 minutes, and it needs to be readable. Viewers don’t like things to be hard work, so write an easy reading piece and your followers will stick around.

    5.Blogging and social media.
    Write at least one blog. See ‘Complete Sentences’, above. And know what people mean when they say ‘social media’. They really mean media. Recognise what makes it all tick, and how you can help someone co-operate with their audience in a meaningful way.

    6.E-mail marketing.
    Learn to build a house e-mail list. Know what makes an e-mail work or fail.

    7.Statistics 101.
    You need to be on top of figures like a hawk. Like point number 2, Nothing forces money out of a marketing budget faster than an out of control PPC marketing. As with every click of your link in some paying ads, it will cost you money. You’ll need to understand whether this cost is stretching out sufficiently against customers physically buying into your business. Spreadsheets are ideal for keeping on top of the vast amount of figures you’ll have to work with so save yourself the stress and get organised with spreadsheets.

    8.Content marketing.
    This involves the creation and sharing of online material such as videos, blogs, and social media posts, that does not explicitly promote a brand but is intended to stimulate interest in its products or services. The stronger this skill is, the more interest you’ll get.

    9. video marketing.
    This is simply another form of advertising in which business create 2-5 minute short videos about specific topics using content from articles and other text sources. The videos are then uploaded to various video sharing websites like YouTube for distribution and exposure. This is a successful and helpful skill used by some of the top leading businesses.

    10.Voice search.
    This enables users to search by speaking on a mobile phone or computer. This may mean that sites with the sort of content that answers common questions accurately and concisely are more likely to be the ones providing the answers to those questions. So making resources directly for customer use and searches will need to be provided bearing in mind of the latest form of search trend.

    Success in e-commerce is never an overnight job, even for the best of people. Continuing to improve your e-commerce will continue to improve your overall results in business.

  23. Very informative video. Thanks
    I am a bit confused. Many suppliers has e-packet for US, but not for Canada and other countries, so let's say someone buys a product from Canada that doesn't have e-packet option (how do I deal with that?) If I have to make sure the product I need in my store has e-packet for all the countries, then I will have a very short list of products.

  24. Hi Oberlo, if I am from philippines what will I choose for shipping? Is e packet still good?
