    Winters come around and you've found yourself with too much free time (again). Well worry no more, because there's an exciting and not so new way to entertain yourselves during the cold season while also (hopefully) earning a profit. So put on some pants, turn off the pay-per-view and join the wonderful world of drop shipping.

    What is dropshipping? Drop shipping is basically selling a product that you don’t have, and purchasing it once you sell it. Now, I’m sure there are thousands of sites where you can buy products and flip them for a profit, but due to time constraints we’re going to focus on one site in particular; AliExpress. This site is a great place to get started because it provides very unique products at a fraction of their retail prices.

    So, how can you turn a profit from buying goods through AliExpress and selling them somewhere else? There are many different ways, but instead of listing them all here is the most common way:

    You place orders as you receive the orders

    -Note: In my opinion, this option works the best and the benefit is that it requires little to no investment to start

    a.) Find your products and create an online store to sell the products (An example of can be seen here – worldmarketmovement.com).

    b.) Advertise EVERYWHERE. Take advantage of every advertising opportunity you encounter; whether it be on social media, email, newspapers, etc.

    c.) Prepare to start receiving online orders from customers

    d.) Once an order is received, go to AliExpress and purchase the product and have it shipped to the customer

    e.) If you keep your store updated and running smoothly then you will be sure to see profits.

    If you've had or currently own a dropshipping business, feel free to share your story! Best of luck to everyone!

    Right, because we've never heard of dropshipping before!

    You can sell your own designer t-shirts and get them drop shipped to your customers now. QikInk.com offers some interesting range of T-Shirts. We usually need to do some value addition to the product that we buy and sell to earn more profits right, but how can that be possible with drop shipping? Thats the beauty of digital printing. Once you receive an order, Qikink prints your design and send them to your customers. Check it out yourself. Cheers!

    I agree with you. Drop-shipping is a good way of making money. The best part is that you have no need to invest a lot. You can start your business with $200. You will get small profit from selling product. For new comers this group is a great place to learn about drop-shipping. https://web.facebook.com/groups/305749696491797/?ref=bookmarks&_rdr
