Selling PeriPage™ Printer + AliDropShip plugin (DROPSHIPPING STORE)

    Any sales?

    Yup, got 4 sales in the past 10 days after running few campaigns and a shoutout, total revenue $297.80. All sales came from the United States.

    Why this product?

    I'm living from dropshipping for the past 2 years, so I already have my own criteria for a winning product. I found this printer by seeing it on my competitor's facebook completely by random. I started checking it and noticed that this product is extremely fresh on the market. Not too many sales on aliexpress yet, and not too many dropshippers noticed it yet. However, there are many awesome and real reviews about it on aliexpress, and the printer is actually working perfectly + doesn't feel like a trash like most of the other products dropshippers sell. Price margin is awesome as well, cause people have no idea such cool electronic gadget might only be worth $30 + Customers will always come back to buy additional paper for it. Another thing worth mentioning is that the supplier used FedEx (and yet free) delivery method for my USA orders, so delivery time is only 10 business days maximum and it's awesome.

    Why are you selling this site?

    I just finished building this store 2 weeks ago, and I'm already selling it without even scaling the ads properly. It's because I launched a local business in my country, and, to my extreme surprise, it is showing unexpected results since day one. I'm currently all-in in it and I could barely find time for this store now at my current routine as it is getting worse. I also have another profitable dropshipping store that I'm still making living from, and that requires a lot of my time as well. At this point, It would be useless to just let this website sit, so I thought I might sell it and get at least some of my expenses back.

    How is it monetized?

    It's a dropshipping store, made with Wordpress platform. Site uses paid alidropship.com plugin (lifetime license cost 89$), which makes whole dropshipping process easy, because you can import products from aliexpress with just a few clicks including photos, options, descriptions and etc. It also synchronize stock and options with aliexpress automatically, has automatic order fulfillment option, emailing and so on. You can contact alidropship support and change the license to another domain in the future if needed.

    Does this site come with any social media accounts?

    Yup, there's facebook and Instagram accounts. Last week I legally brought 1,351 likes on facebook page, by using "Page likes" campaign on ad manager, and targeting worldwide. these likes costed me around $10, and they won't generate sales. These are only for social proof so it looks like a reputable store already. :)

    You will find social media links in the website (footer).

    How much time does this site take to run?

    Takes nothing if you don't get sales and just let it sit, and it can take hours if you're willing to do the right marketing and actually advertise it.

    What challenges are there with running this site?

    Not much. In my beliefs it just needs some good marketing to blow up.

    What are all the expenses necessary to keep the store running?

    Compared to Shopify there's not much, because you don't need to pay $30 monthly. This is wordpress platform and alidropship plugin license is already there for a lifetime. You only need to pay $5/year for a domain, and get a hosting. You can find some cheap hosting plans for as low as $4 / month and they will do fine for a start.

    Would you help with a transfer?

    Yes, I can take a full care of domain and website transfer to your hosting in case you are not that experienced.

    What is included in the sale?
    • Complete store with a lifetime AliDropship license and all it's future updates.
    • Good looking FB, IG pages with some real likes and followers.
    • Nice domain name
    • Logos and other edit files that I made.
    • I also ordered 2 gigs from fiverr to make me a ad videos for this printer + a story video and a logo animation. I paid $35 for those and they are great for future ad campaigns. I will add those as well.
    • Some technical support from my side.
    My other personal thoughts

    1. I made the store without a thought of selling at first so the amount of effort I brought into this store is enormous (I'm kinda self-critical perfectionist so if I do something for my own good - I do it best I can). After all, I really love how this store came out.

    Sales came from Instagram shoutout and few fb campaigns. FB likes campaign was only to get some cheap and quick likes so the page looks more authentic.

    I'm still unable to contact you. Seems like you need to make some updates on your DigitalPoint account settings. Check if you allow messages from other members on settings --> Contact details. Also check settings --> Privacy settings.
