This listing is for a dropshipping business created in March 2017 in the apparel & accessories niche. The Shopify site features a particular low-cost men’s accessory, primarily using the ‘Free + Shipping’ method. The site sells products for $0.00, and only charges customers the shipping fees, which are inflated for profit. All products are dropshipped directly from the supplier. Traffic is primarily gained through Facebook ads, and the site has a conversion rate around 5% which is higher than the industry standard.
The business requires few hours to maintain. VAs take care of almost everything from processing orders to answering emails. Every now and then, the Seller will look for items to add to the store. About once a week, the Seller will take care of Paypal claims and answer messages there (using canned responses most of the time). The VAs have been trained to take over these tasks and general management of the store if the Buyer wants to be fully hands off. The Seller also recently hired a new team to take care of the Facebook ads and is already running new tests.
The store is in Euros and though many customers are from Germany and Europe in general, the entire site and all communication are in English. The store currently has 29 products, though the Seller often adds or removes products. Although the Facebook page only has around 3k followers, Facebook is very important to the business since the business runs marketing on Facebook and Instagram through the ad manager.
The business uses an app that automatically sends out emails to people who abandoned items in their cart, but the business has no active marketing campaigns. The app has collected just under 20k messenger subscribers and over 35k emails. The store itself has collected almost 50k emails. This is an opportunity for the Buyer to grow and utilize.
