If it’s traffic you want, it’s traffic you’ll get with an Amazon webstore.<br><br>You might be wondering which would be better if you are just starting out in ecommerce with a home dropship business: Amazon or your own website.<br><br>The truth is that in almost all instances, an ecommerce newbie would be well advised to steer away from starting up their own website and opt instead for selling on a huge venue such as Amazon. Why? Because you could not possibly hope to attract the huge volume of traffic that Amazon gets and without traffic, you won’t make sales. It’s just that simple. <br><br>After you have been in business a while and built up a good, strong repeat customer base and have learned the ropes of marketing, social media, SEO and all the other things that go into having a profitable ecommerce business---you can consider your own website if you feel so inclined. But initially, Amazon Webstores will suit your purposes admirably.<br><br><strong>About Amazon Web stores &amp; Dropshippers</strong><br><br>So, what exactly is an Amazon Webstore and how do you go about opening one for dropshippers?<br><br>Well, for starters, a webstore for drop shippers is opened and run no differently than any other webstore, unless you use Fulfillment by Amazon; which you won’t be.

If you try to fly solo right off the bat with your own website, you will be incurring a ton of work and cannot hope to get the sort of massive global traffic that flows through Amazon 24/7. <br><br>This is not to say that having your own website for a dropshipping business would never be a good idea, but for most beginning ecommerce entrepreneurs, it is more than a little overwhelming. <br><br>When you dropship with Amazon, you get the benefit of the millions of visitors through the site, plus the fame of the Amazon name. The fact is that most people in the civilized world have at least heard of Amazon. When you dropship with Amazon, you get the benefit of the site’s popularity and as an added bonus, acquire the trust that online shoppers associate with this giant marketplace.<br><br>Trust is a crucial issue with ecommerce. One of the biggest obstacles you will face with dropshipping or nay kind of online sales is overcoming the doubt and lack of trust many shoppers feel in buying from a merchant online. But, when you dropship with Amazon, a site well known for putting customer satisfaction first, the trust people feel for the site will rub off on you simply because you are a part of it.<br><br>Here are some things you will need to do in order to dropship with Amazon and start a profitable home business.<br><br></p> <ul> <li>Set up a seller’s account. You can have an Individual Seller Account or a Professional Account. You would probably be happier with the Professional Account because you will be hopefully be making lots of sales. With the Individual Account, you will pay $0.99 per item sold, plus other selling fees. With a Professional Account, you pay $39.99 a month plus other selling fees. You can see where it would probably benefit you to go for the Professional Account.</li> </ul> <p><br>This is what you will need to set up the seller’s account:<br><br></p> <ul> <li>Your business name, address, and contact information</li> <li>An internationally-chargeable credit card with valid billing address</li> <li>A phone number where you can be reached during this registration process</li> <li>Your tax identity information</li> </ul> <p><br>You can sell in more than 20 categories for an Individual Account or 10 more with approval from Amazon with a Professional Account. Before choosing a niche or product to dropship, be sure it is included in one of the categories Amazon will accept! <br><br>The other fees you will pay are based on the category you are selling in, which is something else you may want to take into consideration before deciding on a niche.</p> <p><br>Once you have done all the above and found a reputable wholesale dropship product source, you’re ready to <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/82154/Home-Business-Idea-How-to-Dropship-with-Amazon" title="dropship with Amazon" target="_blank">dropship with Amazon</a> and have your very own home business!<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/99971/How-to-Dropship-with-Amazon-for-a-Profitable-Home-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeMon, 12 Aug 2013 23:16:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:99971http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98802/3-Ways-to-Boost-the-Conversion-Rate-in-Your-Home-Dropship-Business#Comments03 Ways to Boost the Conversion Rate in Your Home Dropship Businesshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98802/3-Ways-to-Boost-the-Conversion-Rate-in-Your-Home-Dropship-Business<br><img id="img-1373031282442" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/funnel-resized-600.png" alt="dropship business conversion rate" class="alignRight" style="float: right;" border="0">Would you like to know 3 great ways to boost the conversion rate in your home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship " target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong> </a>business?<br><br>Sure you would!<br><br>After all, the higher your conversion rate, the higher your income. So, anything you can do to increase conversion and make more sales means more money in your pocket. <br><br>First of all, what exactly is a conversion rate?<br><br>You may be new to ecommerce and have heard the term “conversion rate” bandied about but be vague as to what it means. Here is a brief but accurate definition of a conversion rate, straight from trusty Wikipedia:<br><br>“In internet marketing, the conversion rate is the proportion of visitors to a website who take action to go beyond a casual content view or website visit, as a result of subtle or direct requests from marketers, advertisers, and content creators.”<br><br>In other words, in terms of your dropshipping sales, your conversion rate would mean how many visitors or click throughs to your site or listing on eBay, Amazon or wherever actually went on to make a purchase. For example, if you had ten visitors to your dropship website and 5 of them completed a purchase, you would have a conversion rate of 50%. If you are an eBay dropshipper, your conversion rate would apply to your listings. If ten shoppers clicked through to view your item and 4 of them made a purchase, then your conversion rate would be 40%.<br><br>Obviously, a high conversion rate is to be strived for at all times. There are other considerations when it comes to improving your dropship business conversion rates, as well. Having a high conversion rate will net you a higher ranking in search engine results pages because Google and the other major search engines reward good conversion rates as they are an indication that your site or your content is valuable to others.<br><br>This also applies to your dropship listings on eBay, particularly since the advent of the new Cassini search engine. You will score brownie points with Cassini and get ranked higher in search results if your listings convert to sales reasonably often.<br><br>So, without further ado, 3 ways to increase your conversion rate for a home dropship business:<br><br>1. Provide excellent descriptions and images. Always keep in mind that online shoppers are at a disadvantage in that they are unable to see and touch your products in real time. They must rely on reading your descriptions and looking at your images. Therefore, the descriptions need to be as detailed as possible, while romancing the benefits to the shopper of your product. The images must be large enough to see well, with clear, true colors, and preferably include several views. Having great descriptions and images of your dropship products will go a long way toward increasing your conversion rate.<br><br>2. Streamline and simplify checkout. The checkout process is one place that many an ecommerce entrepreneur comes to grief as far as a conversion rate, because this is the spot in the sales funnel where many shoppers bail without completing a purchase. The faster and easier you can make this step---the better off you will be. If you are an eBay or Amazon dropshipper, you don’t have to worry about it much as checkout is basically built-in. But, if you have your own website, this is a crucial step and to improve conversion….it must be quick and painless for the shopper. Don’t ask for info you don’t need to complete the sale. Don’t make the customer jump through hoops to checkout. Do have a progress bar that shows shoppers exactly where they are in the checkout process. <br><br>3. One of the biggest hurdles an ecommerce business person must overcome in order to make a sale is fear and shoppers being uneasy about getting ripped off. To overcome this and increase your conversion rate in a home dropship business, display your trust and security signs and symbols prominently. Make sure that visitors to your site know that it is safe and secure. This will help immensely in increasing your conversions.<br><br>Use these 3 tips to increase the conversion rate for your home dropship business!<p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98802/3-Ways-to-Boost-the-Conversion-Rate-in-Your-Home-Dropship-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeFri, 05 Jul 2013 16:01:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:98802http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98617/How-to-Become-a-Top-Amazon-Seller-with-Dropshipping#Comments0How to Become a Top Amazon Seller with Dropshippinghttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98617/How-to-Become-a-Top-Amazon-Seller-with-Dropshipping<br><img id="img-1373424922871" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/amazon-logo-resized-600.jpeg" alt="dropshipping Amazon" class="alignCenter" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" border="0">Anyone interested in starting and maintaining a thriving, profitable ecommerce business with <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping" target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong></a> would do well to consider becoming a seller on Amazon.<br><br>What is so great about Amazon?<br><br>Well, of starters, there are millions and millions of visitors flowing through the site every day from all over the world. Then there is the not insignificant matter of Amazon’s popularity and fame. Think about it. How many people in the civilized world have not at least heard of Amazon?<br><br>Right.<br><br>This fame works to your advantage if you want to become a <em><strong>dropshipping</strong></em> seller on Amazon because quite honestly, there is simply no way you could possibly hope to replicate that kind of brand buzz and traffic all by your lonesome on your own website. So, by setting up to sell on Amazon, you can ride the coat tails of this massive online marketplace and reap some of its rewards.<br><br>Here are some helpful hints that you might find beneficial about <em><strong>dropshipping</strong></em> on Amazon:<br><br>If you are planning to sell more than 40 items a month on Amazon, you would be well advised to choose the Pro Account. With the free service for sellers, Amazon charges a flat rate closing fee of $0.99 per item sold. So, do the math and you can see why you would come out way ahead if you sell more than 40 items a month.<br><br>If you haven’t yet selected a niche for your <em><strong>dropship</strong></em> sales, take a look at Amazon’s Best Seller lists to get some ideas about what is hot and what is not. For instance, if you are looking in the Amazon category of Sporting Goods, you can click al link that will show you the bestselling products within that particular category. This can be quite helpful in choosing a niche because you get an idea of what people are buying.<br><br>One good tip for choosing a niche on Amazon is to stick with <em><strong>dropshipping</strong></em> items that have consistently good reviews. You might be surprised at how many shoppers will not buy anything without first scoping out its reviews and will back off from a purchase if the widget has a lot of bad reviews from users.<br><br>Consider <em><strong>dropshipping</strong></em> in a niche with a low referral fee on Amazon. For example, computers have a 6% referral fee, unlocked cell phones, video game consoles and some other electronics have a 7% referral fee, while other categories can be significantly higher. Remember, the lower your fees paid to Amazon, the higher your profits and the amount of money that goes in your own pocket. <br><br>Be realistic and upfront with customers regarding an estimated delivery date. You don’t have to divulge that you are using a <em><strong>dropshipper</strong></em> and that their item will be shipped by a third party; but do be truthful about the time frame when they can reasonably expect delivery. In general, people don’t tend to get irate if they know in advance it will take a week or longer for their item to arrive, but if you lead them to believe it will be at their door in a couple of days--brace yourself. They will probably be angry or at least upset.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <br><br>Check out <span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09" id="hs-cta-908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span> for the best kept secrets on the subject!<br><br>Use these tips to be successful in <em><strong>dropshipping</strong></em> on Amazon!&nbsp;&nbsp; <span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc" id="hs-cta-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/98617/How-to-Become-a-Top-Amazon-Seller-with-Dropshipping&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleySat, 29 Jun 2013 01:21:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:98617http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97639/Dropship-Home-Business-eBay-Amazon-or-Your-Own-Website#Comments0Dropship Home Business: eBay, Amazon or Your Own Website?http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97639/Dropship-Home-Business-eBay-Amazon-or-Your-Own-Website<br><p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/puzzled.jpg" alt="dropship eBay Amazon" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Do you want to start a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> home business and are unsure about which venue is best---eBay, Amazon or your own website?<br><br>This is a very common question about newbies to the world of ecommerce and it has a multifaceted answer.

Policies are extremely rigid and almost unrealistic in some cases.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>You are discouraged (to put it mildly) from having any communication at all with your buyers, making it almost impossible to forge a connection that would lead to repeat purchases.</li> </ul> <h2>Your Own Dropship Website</h2> <br><strong>The Pros:</strong><br><br> <ul> <li>You can personalize and customize your website to suit yourself.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>You aren’t bound by someone else’s rules and policies and don’t have to worry about unfair or undeserved feedback trashing your business or getting you shut down and banned from selling as you do on eBay or to some extent, Amazon.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>You can make a more personal connection with your buyers and encourage repeat business.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>No fees.</li> </ul> <br><strong>The Cons:</strong><br><br> <ul> <li>You cannot reasonably expect to get the amount of traffic generated on Amazon or eBay.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>You will have to be much more aggressive about marketing, SEO, website maintenance and more.</li> </ul> <br>So, as you can see, each venue has something top recommend it and some points not really in its favor. When you start your home dropship business, weight each of the pros and cons about eBay, Amazon and your own website; then choose which seems best for your purposes. <br><br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-4cdd8ee0-caa0-44ff-99c2-cd048a2dbcc6"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-4cdd8ee0-caa0-44ff-99c2-cd048a2dbcc6" id="hs-cta-4cdd8ee0-caa0-44ff-99c2-cd048a2dbcc6"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/4cdd8ee0-caa0-44ff-99c2-cd048a2dbcc6" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-4cdd8ee0-caa0-44ff-99c2-cd048a2dbcc6" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/4cdd8ee0-caa0-44ff-99c2-cd048a2dbcc6.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-4cdd8ee0-caa0-44ff-99c2-cd048a2dbcc6"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=4cdd8ee0-caa0-44ff-99c2-cd048a2dbcc6&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97639/Dropship-Home-Business-eBay-Amazon-or-Your-Own-Website&bvt=rss">Greg ScottWed, 29 May 2013 17:04:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:97639http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97638/Home-Business-Ideas-Can-You-Dropship-on-Amazon#Comments0Home Business Ideas: Can You Dropship on Amazon?http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97638/Home-Business-Ideas-Can-You-Dropship-on-Amazon<br><p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/amazon pic.jpeg" alt="dropship Amazon" class="alignCenter" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" border="0">If you would like nothing better than to escape the drudgery and low pay of your present 9-5 job in favor of being your own boss with a home business, you might be wondering if you can <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> on Amazon.<br><br>The answer is short and sweet: Yes.</p> <p>Yes, you can. In fact, many dropship sellers are enjoying tremendous success on this giant marketplace and you can, too!<br><br>First of all, if you are considering Amazon as your dropshipping venue, you’ve already taken a step in the right direction. This amazing online marketplace gets a huge volume of global traffic 24/7. In fact, the site gets an estimated 20 million visitors (global) on any given day, with about 132 million visitors a month from the United States alone.<br><br>Wow! That is a LOT of traffic and if you dropship on Amazon, you can count on getting much more exposure than on a smaller website, or your own website.<br><br>You will have to pay fees to dropship on Amazon, as well as adhere to their strict policies and rules for sellers. But, these policies are really nothing except good customer service and being an honest, reputable seller---something you should strive for anyway. If you are a good seller and run a service oriented dropship home business, you will have no reason to chafe at Amazon’s rules.<br><br>You may have heard that dropshipping was forbidden on Amazon because the seller had to have actual physical possession of the goods being sold. Listen up! This is no longer the case.<br><br>It is perfectly permissible nowadays to dropship on Amazon as the site no longer insists on a seller having possession of the products sold. <br><br>Unless you plan to sell in very large volume, the basic pricing plan should be sufficient to your needs. Here are the steps you will need to take in order to dropship on Amazon.<br><br></p> <ul> <li>Set up a seller account. You will need: Your business name, address, and contact information. An internationally-chargeable credit card with valid billing address. A phone number where you can be reached during the registration process. Your tax identity information. Choose your plan, the $39.99 a month plan is what many dropship sellers choose.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Once this registration process is complete, list your products. Be sure to use excellent descriptions and good, clear images.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Your next step is pricing. Stay competitive, but don’t try to undercut all of your competitors since this is a poor business practice. Amazon has some rules about pricing, but as long as you don’t vary drastically from the fair market retail price of your products, you won’t have anything to worry about.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Once you have priced your products, register to collect online payments from your buyers.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ul> <li>Select a shipping method. For dropshipping, this will be the method used by your wholesale product source to ship the products you sell. If you are within the U.S. and select the Domestic Standard shipping time, your U.S. buyers should expect to receive their items in 4 to 14 business days from the time payment is made. There are various other shipping methods with associated expected delivery times.</li> </ul> <p><br>You have some big advantages if you dropship on Amazon, namely that customers all over the world know the site and trust it.<br><br>If you are looking for a great home business idea, consider getting set up to dropship on Amazon today for great profits!<br><br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc" id="hs-cta-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/97638/Home-Business-Ideas-Can-You-Dropship-on-Amazon&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 29 May 2013 16:41:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:97638http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96526/Amazon-Dropship-Central-a-Great-Ecommerce-Marketplace#Comments0Amazon: Dropship Central & a Great Ecommerce Marketplacehttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/96526/Amazon-Dropship-Central-a-Great-Ecommerce-Marketplace<br><p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/amazonlogo-resized-600.jpg" alt="Amazon dropship" class="alignCenter" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" border="0"></p> <p>If you want to earn a comfortable living working from home and being your own boss, you may want to consider Amazon: <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="Dropship" target="_blank"><strong>Dropship</strong></a> Central and a fantastic ecommerce marketplace!<br><br>If you’re even to the point of seriously considering working from home, you’re already on the right track to personal and financial freedom! Too many people spend their working lives making money for somebody else but never enough for themselves. With a home business in dropshipping, you can change your life for the better.<br><br>One of the most crucial aspects of success with ecommerce is traffic. Driving traffic to your website or dropship product listings is vitally important because without that traffic, you will not have potential customers and won’t make enough sales to make your dropshipping business viable.<br><br>If there is one thing you can count on with Amazon as your online dropship marketplace, it’s that there will definitely be plenty of traffic.<br><br>In fact, an estimated 188 million global visitors flow through the site on a daily basis and this provides a humongous opportunity for you to sell your dropship items.<br><br>Here is how selling on Amazon works, directly from the website:<br><br><strong>“Upload your Inventory</strong> <br><br>With Selling on Amazon, it's easy to upload your inventory. Once you've registered, use tools in Seller Central to get up and running fast. <br><br><strong>Customers view and purchase your products on Amazon.com</strong> <br><br>Your products will appear on Amazon.com. With features like 1-Click and a brand millions of consumers trust, we help customers make quick, easy, worry-free purchases. <br><br><strong>You Ship Products to Customers</strong> <br><br>Amazon notifies you by email when an order has been placed. You simply pack and ship your item to the customer (Or you can sign up for Fulfillment by Amazon and let Amazon do the shipping for you). <br><br><strong>Amazon Transfers Payments to You</strong> <br><br>Amazon deposits payment into your bank account at regular intervals and sends an email notifying you that your payment has been sent.”<br><br>Of course, if you are a dropship seller, you can skip the part about packing and shipping the products you sell on Amazon, because your wholesale product supplier will take care of that for you.<br><br>Here is a look at the fee structure for Amazon sellers:<br><br>“<strong>Selling Fees Per-item fees</strong><br><br><strong>Professional Selling Plan</strong>: no per-item fee Individual Selling Plan: $0.99 fee for each item sold<br><br>When your item sells, Amazon collects the amount paid by the buyer (including the item price and any shipping, gift wrap, or other charges). Amazon platform shipping rates apply to media products (books, music, video, DVD, software, and video games) sold by Professional Sellers, and to all products sold by Individual Sellers. <br><br>See Shipping Credits by Category for a table of Amazon platform shipping rates. Shipping Fees (Fulfilling Orders) <br><br>When you fulfill orders yourself, Amazon platform shipping rates apply to media products (books, music, video, DVD, software, and video games) sold by Professional Sellers, and to all products sold by Individual Sellers. We charge these shipping rates based on the product category and shipping service selected by the buyer, and then pass the amount on to you.<br><br>For products that Amazon fulfills for you, in addition to the Selling on Amazon fees, you will be charged fees for order fulfillment, storage and optional services. <br><br><strong>Fees for Media Products</strong> <br><br><strong>Referral Fees</strong></p> <p>Sellers pay a referral fee on each media item sold. For media products (Books, Music, Video, DVD, Software, and Video Games), Amazon deducts as a referral fee a percentage of the item price, excluding any taxes collected through Amazon tax collection services. <br><br><strong>Variable Closing Fees</strong></p> <p>For each media item that is sold, sellers also pay a variable closing fee.<br><br>The referral fee percentages and variable closing fees for media products are shown in the table <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/seller-account/mm-product-page.html?topic=200274770&amp;ld=AZSOAUSCSNav" title="here" target="_blank">here</a>.” <br><br>If you plan on dropshipping more than 40 items a month on Amazon, there is a $39.99 plan that should serve very nicely and be sufficient for your needs. <br><br>As far as categories, there are some things you can’t sell on Amazon.

Bear in mind that this is global traffic, meaning that you have exposure to potential customers from all around this big blue marble. What a big advantage this is over a traditional retail brick and mortar store that must basically rely on very limited, local traffic only for its sales.<br><br>When you use Amazon Webstores for your home dropship business venue, you will reap the benefits of its incredible stream of global traffic, as well as its brand recognition as a marketplace. You can bet that in most civilized parts of the world where people are shopping online, almost all of the people have heard of Amazon and most of them have bought from it.<br><br>This, in and of itself, is an enormous help to you with dropship sales.<br><br>Why? Simply because one of the biggest obstacles to be overcome when dealing with online shoppers is their natural hesitation and doubt about buying online. This is understandable because we all hear horror stories of internet consumers being scammed or having their sensitive data hacked. When someone shops with you on Amazon Webstores, though, you have the cachet of being associated with a business known and trusted internationally. <br><br>Needless to say, this will help tip the scales in your favor when someone is debating whether or not to pull the trigger in a purchase from you.<br><br>Although Amazon has several pricing plans for its Webstores, you would probably be better served by the one designed for Small Businesses. It is extremely user friendly! Here are some of the features of the Amazon Webstores Small Business Solutions that would be a safe bet for a dropship business:<br><br> <ul> <li>Exposure to some of the 188 million people who shop on Amazon</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Easy payments with no other gateways required.

Here are just a few of the various types of products available to sell online:<br><br> <ul> <li>Spelling</li> <li>Reading</li> <li>Math</li> <li>English</li> <li>Science</li> <li>And More</li> </ul> <br>Plus, there are all kinds of kids educational software out there to dropship for all ages---toddlers through high school.<br><br>Sales of educational software for kids is booming as more and more emphasis is put on early learning and the importance of children getting excellent grades in school.<br><br>The students who get the best grades and score highest on tests are the ones who get the plum scholarships and most financial help with college. In view of the fact that many colleges around the USA have increased their tuition costs by as much as 50% recently, higher education is becoming almost out of reach for the average kid in America, without some help from scholarships and/or grants.<br><br> <h3><span style="color: #3366ff;"><strong>Where to Dropship Kids Educational Software</strong></span></h3> <br>The sky is basically the limit as far as a venue if you want to dropship kids educational software.<br><br>Amazon, eBay, Bonanza, Overstock, your own website….you can more or less pick and choose. If you perform a search on Amazon for “educational software” you get an astounding 21,853 results!<br><br>Looking them over, these results seem to be right on target and provide you with a good idea of what a hot niche this is. In case you’re thinking that there would be too much competition, look at it this way: do you want to try and dropship something nobody wants?<br><br>eBay, on the other hand, returned a mere 1,208 listings and under Related Searches showed “Whiskey Stones.”<br><br>Really, eBay?<br><br>Whiskey stones are related to educational software?<br><br>Sheesh. Yet another classic example of the train wreck eBay calls a search engine. You may want to consider this when it comes time to choose a marketplace to dropship kids educational software.<br><br>This is a niche that will have a nice, steady stream of traffic. That being said, it will probably pick up around the time for schools to start around the world. Still, you can almost certainly count on enough of a year round demand to keep you in sales aplenty.<br><br>Dropship kids educational software for a profitable ecommerce home business niche with a steady, year round demand!<br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/93079/Home-Business-Idea-Dropship-Kids-Educational-Software&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeFri, 11 Jan 2013 00:25:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:93079http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/93063/Looking-for-a-Dropship-eBay-Alternative#Comments0Looking for a Dropship eBay Alternative?http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/93063/Looking-for-a-Dropship-eBay-Alternative<br><p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/amazon1-resized-600.jpg" alt="amazon ebay dropship alternative" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Are you tired of the exorbitant fees, seller unfriendly policies, totally dysfunctional search engine and all the rest of the current CEO’s “disruptive innovations” and looking for a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> eBay alternative?</p> <p><br>If so, take heart! There is life after eBay, as many sellers who have already jumped ship can testify.<br><br>True, eBay does still get a lot of traffic and according to some news tidbits you red; the site has pulled out of its slump and is growing. But, try telling that to sellers.<br><br>Well, we’ll rephrase that: try telling that to smallish sellers. The huge corporations eBay has wooed strenuously for the past several years are going great guns. They love eBay and why shouldn’t they? Most of them aren’t required to pay the outrageous fees imposed on smaller sellers.<br><br>So, if you happen to be one of those smaller sellers, there is a good possibility that you’re paying more and selling less. <br><br></p> <h3><span style="color: #339966;"><strong>A Dropship eBay Alternative</strong></span></h3> <p><br>If you’re disenchanted with FeeBay and actively scouting around for a viable dropship eBay alternative, you do have some options:<br><br>Amazon: Amazon has about the same fee structure and seller policies as eBay, but their site actually works, which is a huge plus. Amazon’s search engine kicks booty and shoppers on the site are able to enter a word or phrase into the search box and---wonder of wonders if you’re used to eBay---find it!<br><br>The thing about search is that if someone can’t find your dropship listings when they search for products you are selling, it’s a lead pipe cinch you aren’t going to sell many.<br><br>eBay has worked arduously to pattern its business model after Amazon but for some reason, hasn’t been able to implement a search algorithm that does what it is supposed to do. This is a source of frustration for buyers and sellers alike. Buyers because they can’t find what they’re looking for and sellers because they can’t sell their stuff.<br><br></p> <h3><span style="color: #339966;"><strong>Advantage: Amazon</strong></span></h3> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Amazon is the hands down winner over eBay in the search department, which will be enormously helpful to you in dropshipping sales.<br><br>Another benefit of Amazon as a dropship eBay alternative is the amount of global traffic. Any way you care to slice, dice, chop or cut it---more traffic means more potential customers which means more money in your pocket. This is a good thing. We like money.<br><br>According to an article from <a href="http://blog.compete.com/2012/11/19/searching-for-amazon-success/" title="Compete Pulse" target="_blank">Compete Pulse</a>:<br><br>“1 in 2 consumers who visit Amazon in a month conduct an onsite search and are exposed to a search results page according to new Compete research. &nbsp;At first glance, you would expect the number to be higher. However, Amazon has done an increasingly effective job of bringing searchers directly to products or category landing pages based on keywords. There are also those consumers that are conducting external searches that direct them to a product.”<br><em>Source: Compete Pulse</em><br><br>See how important a working search function is on a website? This is, as noted above, definitely an area where Amazon has a clear advantage over eBay.

Of course, they are also terribly handy for business use, as well.<br><br>This means that you have a broad target market of potential customers if you decide to dropship fun products such as iPads and their accessories.<br><br> <h3><span style="color: #800080;"><strong>iPad Accessories</strong></span></h3> <br>What are iPad accessories?<br><br>There are quite a few accessories available for iPads. That being said, the most widely used are these:<br><br> <ul> <li>Cases</li> <li>Docks</li> <li>Ear Phones</li> <li>Stands</li> <li>Portfolios</li> <li>Screen Protectors</li> <li>Display Cases</li> </ul> <br><br>Bear in mind that the above are only the most used, there are plenty of others you might want to offer in your online dropshipping store or in your eBay or Amazon listings.<br><br> <h3><span style="color: #800080;"><strong>Benefits of Accessories</strong></span></h3> <br>There are some hefty benefits to offering iPad accessories if you are going to be dropshipping iPads. Think about it. If someone is buying an iPad, there is a very good possibility that this customer will also be in the market for a case, stand or other accessory---maybe several accessories.<br><br>So, this gives you, an eager beaver ecommerce entrepreneur, a golden opportunity to boost sales by such techniques as:<br><br> <ul> <li>Bundling</li> <li>Cross Selling</li> <li>Up Selling</li> </ul> <br>When you sell someone an iPad and then show them a bundle with desirable accessories at a lower cost than purchasing each item separately, you are likely to close the deal and end up with more sales and profits because you sold multiple items.<br><br>Yay!<br><br> <h3><span style="color: #800080;"><strong>Sales Stats for iPads</strong></span></h3> <br>If you are wondering about how well dropship fun products such as iPads and iPad accessories would perform for you, you’ll probably be interested (and encouraged) by some of these sales stats and info from Apple and <a href="http://techcrunch.com/2012/03/20/ipad-sales-may-reach-66-million-in-2012/" title="Techcrunch.com" target="_blank">Techcrunch.com</a>: <br><br> <ul> <li>Last March, Apple announced sales of 3 million iPads in just 3 days.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray said last year that the firm was forecasting as many as 66 million sales of the new device in 2012, up from the earlier prediction of 60 million.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Munster also forecast that Apple will ship 12 million iPads this quarter alone to reach 66 million by year-end. By 2015, that number will reach 176 million, he says.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Apple CEO Tim Cook noted during the launch of the iPad&nbsp;that&nbsp;Apple sold more iPads in Q4 than any single manufacturer sold in Pcs.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Gartner Research showed that PC shipments were on track to grow just 4.4% in 2012 to 368 million units, as consumers would&nbsp;prioritize&nbsp;buying smartphones and tablets over desktops and laptops.</li> </ul> <br>So…..we can safely assume that you will have a red hot niche if you decide to dropship fun products like iPads and their accessories!<br><br> <h3><span style="color: #800080;"><strong>Where to Sell iPads and Accessories</strong></span></h3> <br>Where do you want to sell them?<br><br>You can dropship iPads and accessories on eBay.

Many eBay drop shippers and plain old garden variety sellers are voting with their feet and leaving the site in search of greener pastures and friendlier skies.<br><br>So, if you’re fed up with eBay, what are the alternatives? Are there any viable alternatives to eBay for dropship sales?<br><br>Yes!<br><br>There are some alternatives to eBay if you simply do not wish to start your New Year off there. Amazon is a very attractive dropship eBay alternative. Let’s take a look at some of the features to be found for dropship sellers on Amazon:<br><br>Amazon---Amazon is HUGE. Absolutely humongous and still growing. In fact, Amazon has been eating eBay’s lunch for several years now. No surprise to seasoned eBay sellers, Amazon started leaving eBay in the dust shortly after the current CEO took the helm at the Bay with his disastrous “disruptive change” policy.<br><br>Now, if you want to leave eBay strictly for smaller fees, you’re out of luck at Amazon because the fee structure is about the same. That being said, there is more traffic than eBay and wonder of wonders---Amazon’s search engine actually works! This is a boon indeed to beleaguered eBay dropship sellers whose sales are down because shoppers are unable to find the products they have listed due to a woefully dysfunctional search feature.<br><br>Amazon has a ton of categories and will accommodate almost any dropship niche. As it will be much faster and easier to tell you which categories you can’t list under rather than the ones you can; here are some of the categories that are off limits on Amazon:<br><br> <ul> <li>Alcohol</li> <li>Gambling and Lottery</li> <li>Animals</li> <li>Human Parts</li> <li>Burial Artifacts</li> <li>Postage Meters and Stamps</li> <li>Tobacco and Tobacco Related Products</li> <li>Hazardous and Dangerous Items</li> <li>Drugs and Drug Paraphernalia</li> <li>Currency, Coin, Cash Equivalents</li> <li>And More</li> </ul> <br>Actually, not many more. If you are in doubt as to whether or not your dropship product is on the restricted list, you can contact Amazon and make inquiries.<br><br>If you are listing less than 40 items per month, you pay $0.99 per sale plus other selling fees. For more than 40 listings per month, you move up to the Professional rank and pay $39.99 per month plus other selling fees.<br><br>To add items to Amazon, here are your options:<br><br> <ul> <li>Use the Add a Product feature on Seller Central to create one product at a time</li> <li>Use the Seller Desktop, which is a free, easy-to-use desktop application that can be used to manage and upload inventory one product at a time or in bulk.</li> <li>Use inventory files to create multiple products simultaneously.</li> </ul> <br>You can download a free guide to getting started selling on Amazon <a href="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/AmznServices/en_US/files/Getting_Started_Guide1._V181643274_.pdf?ld=AZFSSOA" title="here" target="_blank">here</a>. <br><br>You should be aware that customers may leave feedback on Amazon although it doesn’t seem to be the big deal it is on eBay. Amazon gives you a performance rating, same as eBay. In fact, eBay has attempted to pattern itself after Amazon without quite managing to do it well.<br><br>Here's a Great article that you need to read that will help you get started: &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; <span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09" id="hs-cta-908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=908d2fd0-a039-401c-9d11-a78ee4079b09&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><br>Amazon is a great dropship eBay alternative, so check it out today!<br><br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc" id="hs-cta-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=ecea40ff-cbe8-47ab-aa52-de0f26fd60bc&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/92794/Are-You-Looking-for-a-Dropship-eBay-Alternative-Try-Amazon&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeMon, 31 Dec 2012 22:01:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:92794http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/92181/Dropship-News-The-Shape-of-Things-to-Come-for-Ecommerce#Comments0Dropship News: The Shape of Things to Come for Ecommercehttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/92181/Dropship-News-The-Shape-of-Things-to-Come-for-Ecommerce<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/crystalball.jpg" alt="dropship trends 2013" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">2012 has been a fairly tough year for retailers in traditional brick and mortar stores, but e-tail stores and ecommerce endeavors such as a home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> business have experienced growth.<br><br>Ecommerce analysts have studied the situation and made certain predictions for success in online business in 2013. If you want your online dropship business to keep abreast of the pack, or better yet, pull ahead of your competitors, here are a few suggestions:<br><br> <ul> <li>During the next year, you can reasonably expect to see more and more shoppers accessing the internet to browse and buy via mobile devices. It is therefore vitally important to the health of your ecommerce home business that you make sure your website is mobile friendly and accessible to devices such as iPhones and iPads. This is very much a case of you snooze, you lose; because road warrior shoppers will drop you like a hot potato and head for a site that is compatible with their mobiles if you don’t get with the program.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Back in the day, many people would take a friend along when they went shopping in order to get the benefit of a second opinion. Nowadays, though, instead of inviting a friend or two to tag along, people shopping online can take their entire social network along for lots of other opinions. Sites such as Pinterest have become real popular real quick and many people are “pinning’ favorites and making lists online that guide others within their spheres of influence to a buying decision. You should definitely make sure you are on board with this!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Social media marketing is huge. Make no mistake about it---it’s here for the duration. But, here’s the thing: in the coming year, you should be putting more emphasis on engagement with fans and followers and less on the number of fans and followers you accrue. Internet researchers all agree that in today’s society, shoppers want to interact, so give them what they want and engage with them (and their friends) to drive traffic to your dropship website and make sales. This works equally well if you sell on eBay or Amazon or another venue.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>2013 is expected to see a significant increase in video usage. Now that more internet users have faster speeds and dial up is basically a dinosaur for the majority of the online global population, videos slowing your site down is no longer a concern or problem. People generally react very well to videos, so be sure to use them wisely to boost dropship sales for your home business.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Not only is the way we shop online changing, but so is the way we pay for the things we buy online. Payment options will be more important than ever in 2013. Naturally, you will want to continue to accept all major credit cards, but you should also consider Google Checkout and if you don’t offer Paypal as a payment option---you’re losing sales!

You pay $0.99 per sale, plus other selling fees.<br><br> <h3><span style="color: #339966;"><strong>Uploading Your Products to Amazon</strong></span></h3> <br>It’s fast and easy to upload your dropship products to Amazon.

If you sell on eBay, Amazon, your own website or any other online venue, try to use some virtual decorating with cheerful holiday colors and images that will help put shoppers in a festive, buying mood. Don’t use flash images, though, as those tend to be annoying, as well as distracting. You don’t want to distract your shoppers from shopping; you merely want to brighten things up with a holiday theme that will help remind them that Jolly Old Saint Nick is due to make his run very soon, so they need to get those gifts bought.<br><br>2. It’s time to start with holiday promotions. You can have shipping freebies or discounts, contests and giveaways, deals and steals---anything that will help drive traffic to your dropship products. Use email marketing, along with social media marketing and other types of advertising and marketing strategies.<br><br>3. Don’t forget Black Friday. This particular shopping day, along with Cyber Monday, is BIG. There will be a tremendous influx of internet shoppers on both these days so be sure to have great deals and promotions ready for them. These shopping days are perfect for loss leaders, so decide what you can use as a loss leader and get your dropship ducks in a row accordingly.<br><br>4. Make sure that your dropship products are accessible by a mobile device. The number of shoppers who are using mobile devices and apps to shop is rising at a phenomenal rate and if you snooze, you lose. If you doubt the veracity of this, check out this graph:</p> <p><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/Smartphone-PC-And-Tablet-Usage-resized-600.png" alt="dropship business holidays" class="alignCenter" style="display: block; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" border="0"><br><br>5. Check your website for errors, speed and efficiency. Internet shoppers are notoriously unforgiving about things like error messages and slow, clunky check out processes, so you need to be sure everything is up to speed and working correctly before you get hammered with all that extra traffic your good marketing and advertising techniques have gotten you. Recent research has shown that as little as 3 second page load times can cause 40% of online customers to abandon their shopping carts and leave your site, and 79% of shoppers who aren’t happy with the performance of a site are less likely to buy from that site again.&nbsp; Ouch!<br><br>Here’s a few factoids that might motivate you to put the above tips to good use:<br><br></p> <ul> <li>According to the National Retail Federation, online sales are predicted to increase by 12% compared to last year.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>That growth rate could boost internet holiday sales to as much as $96 billion.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Online retailers are guess-timated to accrue almost one-third of their business in the fourth quarter, driven mostly by holiday sales.</li> </ul> <br>Get your dropship business holiday ready and scoop up all those tasty sales and profits!<br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/90735/5-Timely-Tips-to-Get-Your-Dropship-Business-Holiday-Ready&bvt=rss">J.

Now, many have speculated exactly what purpose the CEO thought that all this “disruptive innovation” would serve and the only theory that seems viable is that he simply wanted to be seen to do something to earn his probably ridiculously inflated pay.<br><br>If what he did in the process was to basically dismantle the old, working eBay and replace it with a new, non-working eBay….oh well.<br><br>The crippling fees and ludicrous seller unfriendly policies have driven many good sellers from eBay. <br><br>But, have those sellers found decent alternatives?<br><br><span style="color: #003366;"><strong>Dropship eBay Alternatives: Amazon</strong></span><br><br>It depends a lot on the niche. For example, if you are a dropshipper, you can certainly find another good marketplace such as Amazon. Someone submitted a comment to a recent article here on the Drop Ship Access blog recently about Amazon and dropshipping.<br><br>Their comment was that dropshipping is not allowed on Amazon. People, this is not true. Don’t know where the poster came by their information but it is incorrect.<br><br>You most certainly use the dropshipping business model on Amazon. What you can’t do is dropship and use Amazon Prime.<br><br>Big difference.<br><br>So, it’s safe to say that Amazon is, indeed, a great eBay alternative. Their rules for sellers are stringent, too, but their site isn’t constantly under renovation with the result that it’s a case of one long, ongoing glitch after another. <br><br><span style="color: #003366;"><strong>Other Dropship eBay Alternatives</strong></span><br><br>There are other dropship eBay alternatives. Bonanza, for instance, has no problem with dropshipping. Bonanza started out as Bonanzle and then was able to snag the Bonanza website name, which was better and makes more sense. Besides, it’s easier to remember. <br><br>Bonanza is big and continues to grow. The set-up is different than eBay in that you have booths for your merchandise instead of listing each item separately. <br><br>But, here’s the thing about Bonanza. Recently, they announced that sellers who want to pay higher fees can get Bonanza’s assistance with Google and eBay as far as selling items.<br><br>Honestly, it seems really murky as to how this works. Apparently, you pay Bonanza a higher fee to list your eBay listings in a 30 day Fixed Priced format. Then, you would owe both the eBay fees plus the extra fees to Bonanza. <br><br>This doesn’t seem like a good idea, does it?<br><br>If you’re going to list on eBay, why go through Bonanza and have a double dip situation going on in which you pay more money because you’re using both eBay and Bonanza?<br><br>Along with this change is that Bonanza is paying Google Shopping for Pay Per Clicks for its members. Here is what it says about this deal in the FAQs:<br><br>“"This is indeed the major difference between Bonanza and every other advertising platform that we know of.&nbsp; We have built systems that understand the selling potential of a given item, so we can have our software automatically adjust the cost per click such that the risk is sufficiently low for Bonanza.&nbsp; That said, there will be many times where we pay for clicks to your items, your items don't sell, and we lose money.&nbsp; We accept that as a cost of doing business to help us reach our "big hairy audacious goal" (see above).<br><br>Those potential losses are justified to us, because we don't think that you want to learn how to calculate the optimal CPC cost for your items, so we're doing away with the complicated stuff and focusing on what matters to you - what percentage of your profits are going to be spent on getting this item sold?"<br><br>It occurs to one that these changes indicate a knowledge that Bonanza, by itself, isn’t working.<br><br>So, you might want to think twice about putting your dropship eggs in Bonanza’s basket.<br><br>You can’t dropship on Etsy as no new items are allowed, plus they just flat don’t allow dropshipping.

However, for the purposes of this article, we’ll simply refer to your dropship products---wherever they may be listed---as your store.<br><br>Holidays bring a huge influx of shoppers to the World Wide Web!<br><br>In fact, more and more people are choosing to shop online due to the ease and convenience. Really, can we blame them? Just look at the benefits of shopping online:<br><br> <ul> <li>No elbowing your way through a milling crowd in a brick and mortar store. If you doubt that this is a big plus, cast your mind back to that poor Walmart employee who was literally trampled to death by a herd of shoppers a couple of years ago.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>No burning up fuel driving from store to store and mall to mall. With prices at the pump high enough to cause most of us a mild case of sticker shock; this is a considerable benefit.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>No wasting time going from store to store when you can shop online and let your fingers do the walking. Unless you have a mighty slow internet connection, no way will you be able to get from Point A to Point B as fast as you can hop from site to site online.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Better prices, more promotions. Although this is not always the case, you can usually find lower prices and better deals online than in brick and mortar stores. Why? Simply because it costs a small fortune to maintain a brick and mortar store what with utilities, the building itself, insurance, displays, storage, employees, etc. Somebody has to pay for all these things and guess who it is? That’s right---you.</li> </ul> <br>There are other advantages, of course, but you get the idea. More folks are shopping online and this trend is a boon for an ecommerce entrepreneur!<br><br>Now, let’s look at 3 ways you can divert some of that massive stream of holiday traffic to your own dropship store during the winter holidays:<br><br>1. Work out some great promotions, tasty enough to attract shoppers. You might use loss leaders, which means offering a product at a very low price for the sole purpose of using it as bait to catch bigger fish when shoppers come to your store. You can certainly have some free shipping deals. Ditto for coupon codes.<br><br>2. Market those promotions! Get the word out. Use social media marketing and post all of your promotions on your Facebook page, tweet them, etc. Definitely have a fantastic email marketing campaign for the holidays and pump up your efforts to solicit referrals, as well as people to sign up on your opt-in email subscription list. Having killer promotions won’t do any good if nobody knows about them.<br><br>3. Beef up your SEO and keywords. True, Google has made some changes with its Panda and Penguin updates. But SEO is still what it’s all about as far as getting traffic to your dropship store, so don’t fall down on using your keywords to best advantage. This will help you get picked up by the search engine spiders and the result is a higher placement in the SERPs , or Search Engine Result Pages.<br><br>These tips will help you get your fair share of the very rich holiday shopping pie if you use them correctly, so get started now to increase traffic to your dropship store! <br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/90609/3-Tips-to-Increase-Traffic-to-Your-Ecommerce-Dropship-Store&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 17 Oct 2012 16:02:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:90609http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/90547/Want-to-Dropship-Sell-Now-Buy-Later#Comments0Want to Dropship?

This is not to disparage Herman Miller office furniture, but really---a simple chair will run you around 3 grand or more. If you have that kind of money starting up a small home business, you probably don’t even need to work.</li> </ul> <br>These are the main things, the biggies.

You also supply your dropship supplier with the name and shipping info for your customer. <br><br>You have already collected the payment for the widget from your buyer, so now you pay your wholesale dropship product supplier.<br><br>So, what has happened?<br><br>You sold first and actually bought the product second. Sell now. Buy later.<br><br>Could it get any easier or more economical to start your own home business? Don’t think so!<br><br>This is a beautiful set-up because not only are you not out a king’s ransom buying inventory to sell, but you also don’t have to spend money on storage space to house that inventory, hassle with loading, unloading and warehousing it, or even packaging and shipping.<br><br>Your dropship product supplier does all of that!<br><br>So, if you want to drop out of the Rat Race and let the rats win, you can earn a great living from the comfort of your own home.

If they don’t have the necessary amount of traffic, you can list on there until the cows come home and still won’t come up with enough money to make your home dropship business viable.<br><br>Therefore, if you see obscure, more or less unknown dropshipping websites that might even offer you free listings or no fees….don’t bite.<br><br>You can do the math on this yourself to understand why you need to avoid these unknown or little used dropshipping websites. Paying a small fee such as 5% for a final value fee sounds tasty, especially when you compare it to eBay’s average of 15%.<br><br>But here’s the kicker: 5% of nothing is how much? Right! Nothing. <br><br>If you don’t make any sales because there is little traffic to the smaller dropshipping websites, what good will low fees do you in terms of having money to pay your bills and buy food for your family?<br><br>These things are necessities. Most of us do have bills and as for buying food, it’s expensive but the majority of people won’t eat anything else. <br><br>These expenses require money, which you probably won’t get if you try listing your products on unknown dropshipping websites.<br><br>Instead, when it comes to dropshipping websites, resign yourself to the fact that it’s a case of getting what you pay for. Yes, the fees are higher on eBay and Amazon, but the amount of global traffic running through these two giant marketplaces 24/7 and the sheer volume of prospective customers makes those fees seem negligible.<br><br>If you don’t agree, try having a brick and mortar store that only costs you 15% or so of your profits.<br><br>Here are a few dropshipping websites to consider:<br><br> <ul> <li>eBay</li> <li>Amazon</li> <li>Overstock</li> <li>Bonanza</li> </ul> <br>Etsy is really building a solid base with lots of items, but you can only sell handmade or vintage items on there and no dropshipping is allowed. <br><br>When looking around at dropshipping websites for your home business, go with an established leader with international brand recognition for the most sales and profits!<br><br>If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <div class="CMSConfigureBox BlogEditBox"></div> <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/52716/Your-Home-Dropship-Business-Don-t-Worry-Be-Happy" title="Your Home Dropship Business: Don’t Worry Be Happy!" target="_blank"><strong>Your Home Dropship Business: Don’t Worry Be Happy!</strong></a><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/89623/Wondering-Which-Are-the-Best-Dropshipping-Websites&bvt=rss">Greg ScottTue, 18 Sep 2012 19:55:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:89623http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/89530/Work-From-Home-Tips-3-Top-Dropshipping-Sites#Comments0Work From Home Tips: 3 Top Dropshipping Siteshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/89530/Work-From-Home-Tips-3-Top-Dropshipping-Sites<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/blueribbon.jpg" alt="dropshipping sites" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">If you want to turn your back on a dead end job and start your own ecommerce business so that you can work from home and be your own boss, you may be interested in a little info about 3 top <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping " target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong> </a>sites.<br><br><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/2-ecommerce-marketing-strategies-to-grow-your-business" title="Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!</strong></a><br><br>First of all, if you’re considering building a home business around dropshipping, you’re already one step ahead of the game. <br><br>Why?<br><br>Because a home dropship business is undoubtedly the fastest, easiest and least costly of all home businesses to start up.

When you factor in the fact that it is also one of the only businesses around where you can have money coming in literally immediately, you will probably agree that it&rsquo;s a good bet for an ecommerce wannabe who is sick and tired of trudging off to a miserable, low paying job day after day.<br /><br />Now that we&rsquo;ve established that much, let&rsquo;s look at the 10 tips for getting started in dropshipping so that you can hurry and get your own home business started:<br /><br />1. First, be brutally honest with yourself and determine whether or not you have what it takes to be your own boss and work from home. Are you a self starter? Or do you need someone standing over you with a virtual whip to keep you working? If the latter, don&rsquo;t quit your day job, you won&rsquo;t make it working from home in dropshipping or any other business. <br /><br />2. Choose a niche. You can do this in a variety of ways online. Choose a niche that has a great enough demand to supply you with plenty of potential customers who are looking to buy what you have to sell.<br /><br />3. Find a good wholesale product source. You want one with a good Better Business Bureau rating and lots of high quality products to choose from.<br /><br />4. Decide which products to sell. This is different than choosing a niche, which you have already done. Now you decide which of these niche items you want to dropship.<br /><br />5. List your dropship items on the marketplace or venue of your choice. It may be eBay, Amazon, Bonanza, Overstock or your own website. Just get the products up there and that&rsquo;s it. you&rsquo;re in business.<br /><br />Could getting started in dropshipping get any easier?<br /><br />Visit Drop Ship Access now and check out the 1.7 million wholesale products that will help you with getting started in dropshipping!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/33908/5-Steps-to-Successful-Dropship-Sales-Social-Media-Marketing" title="5 Steps to Successful Dropship Sales Social Media Marketing" target="_blank"><strong>5 Steps to Successful Dropship Sales Social Media Marketing</strong><br /><br /></a><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/87795/5-Terrific-Tips-for-Getting-Started-in-Dropshipping&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleyWed, 25 Jul 2012 01:34:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:87795
