How much can I expect to make and Can you give me an example of how I make money from a Dropshipping website? ?
The amount of money that you make from your business, depends on you. Like any business ‘you get back what you put in’.
For Example . 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…Alternatively if you are stocking a product, you can negotiate bulk discount prices with the suppliers. The main advantage of stocking inventory is you can ship it the same day and this results in happy customers. Drop shipped items can take several days to get to the customers. There are pros and cons of each business model. Chat with us to discuss one that would suit your requirements.
You can also browse examples of suppliers product prices, and recommended retail prices on our website, and can see the huge mark ups available! We have some very (very) successful store owners! Some store owners have added to their portfolio’s and now operate more than one website! We have store owners that have gone on to open retail stores and others that now have their own clothing label, product or brand. They now import directly from our manufacturers, having their own products made, their own clothing designed and/or their own clothing label.We have one store owner who supplies Barber shops with his own branded products. The limits are endless!
Every business is unique, and another store owners earnings cannot be used to estimate the profits that you will make yourself.
Our online businesses are not structured like a franchise where every business is “exactly the same”, all selling “exactly the same products”, with “exactly the same suppliers”, using “exactly the same marketing and advertising” etc.

You could also choose to sell your business. You would be selling it as ‘an established business’ with customers and a trading history, which would be valued at a much higher price than the purchase cost of your website. We can assist you with an exit strategy should you need it.

Beware of websites that are sold ‘pre-loaded’ with products as this would suggest an affiliate arrangement, where you are paid only a small commission for sales, or that the business selling you the website is being paid as an affiliate. Beware of websites being sold ‘pre-loaded’ with products, as this would also suggest the same websites being sold with exactly the same products loaded, over and over again. This is not a profitable business model.
