In this blog post, I will guide you through every step of the process, from setting up your products to pricing, finding sourcing agents for fast shipping, and even designing your website to make it look attractive and user-friendly.

This is the exact same setup that Sebastian used to go from zero to 5K within his first week of launching his store by following the exact steps that I'm about to show you.
Step 1 : Setting Up Your Shopify Store
The first thing you need to do is to make sure you have a product in your store. If you haven't already, open a Shopify website, and watch the previous video where I explain you how to do this. If you missed it, don't worry! You can get a Shopify free trial for 30 days for only one dollar for the first three months. This will save you a lot of money, so take advantage of it.
Once you have your store set up, the next step is to add your products. It's best to start with just one product to keep things simple. For our example, l have used a Thera cup, which is a suction cup used for massage therapy. This product has many benefits and a large market, especially among athletes and the elderly. To showcase your product, add high-quality images to your store. Use atleast three images, which you can drag into the media section before proceeding. This will give your customers a clear understanding of your product.

Step 2 : Setting Your Prices
Another important step is to set your prices. Research your product's market and see what other stores are charging. You want to price your product competitively but still make a profit. A common formula for drop shippers is to charge three times the cost of the product. Don't forget to factor in any shipping costs as well.
Step 3 : Finding a Sourcing Agent
To get fast shipping for your products, it's a good idea to find a sourcing agent. Look for agents that specialize in your product's category, and who have experience working with drop shippers. A sourcing agent will help you find high-quality products at a reasonable cost, and can also arrange for fast shipping to your customers.
I recommend using CJ Drop Shipping, as I’ve had a great experience working with them. To get started with CJ Drop Shipping, create an account by clicking on (this link). Once your account is set up, follow these steps :
- Connect your store to CJ, go to "My CJ” and click on "Store Authorization," select "Shopify," and authorize the app.
- Next, post a sourcing request by clicking on "Sourcing," and select "Post Sourcing Request," and choose the product and category.
- Select "accept similar products" for more options or "no" for an exact match.
- Wait for a response from CJ and sync the product to your store by going to "Products," clicking on "Connection," adding an automatic connection, and choosing the variant you want to link to your website.
In this way, you can source products quickly and easily with CJ Drop Shipping
Step 4 : Making Your Website Look Great
Finally, make sure your website looks nice and is easy to navigate. Choose a theme that is professional, attractive, and reflects your brand's personality. The theme that I like to use on Shopify is a mix of paid themes and free themes. If I'm just testing out a store and I want to get it launched, I like to use a free one because it gets you up and going fast at a low cost. But once you start making sales, you want to advance to some paid themes. You can definitely make sales with free themes, trust me, and my suggested free theme would be “Refresh”.
I’ve shown the exact steps on how I customize my shopify website, use the themes, add product description, featured products and customer reviews and so much more in my video below. Trust me you don’t have to be a professional web designer to do this!
To conclude, starting a successful Shopify Drop Shipping Store requires the right setup and With the right combination of design, product selection, and marketing strategy, you can build a successful e-commerce business that generates consistent sales and helps you achieve your financial goals.
