How to Make a WordPress Dropshipping Website with WooCommerce & AliDropship – 2019! NEW!


In 2018 more than 3,800 retail stores will close down in the US why? People are buying online and many people are taking advantage of that by creating their own e-commerce Dropshipping store with Shopify, but the problem with that is you can get really expensive and for one year. It’s gonna cost $350 or $29 a month and it can easily get up to $1,000 a year with some paid apps But there’s a much cheaper alternative and it might be even better So in this video, I’m gonna show you how to build a dropshipping store with wordpress step-by-step So this is the website that I’ll be showing you how to create from scratch. You don’t need any tech skills It’s fully customizable with a drag-and-drop builder. It’s also mobile responsive and e-commerce ready? So basically you’ll be ready to start selling today. So let me explain a little bit about how dropshipping works before we actually get started Basically, we’ll be importing products from a Chinese website called Aliexpress onto our wordpress store using a plugin called Elite dropship. So let’s say for example, this cat necklace is five dollars from the supplier We can list that same products on our website for $15 with free shipping and then we promote that product or the store through social media and other marketing tactics the customer will buy and pay you and Only then you place an order with the supplier and they will ship it directly to your customer So basically you will make the difference on that sale So, for example, you’re selling it for 15 minus 5 equals 10 dollars profit minus your marketing expenses So it’s really great for beginners because you don’t have to deal with that inventory Shipping and you don’t need to invest thousands of dollars to actually get started. So without much further ado. Let’s get started Okay, so what do we actually need to get started? the first thing you’ll need is a domain name and basically that is your website address for example your shop comm and That cost us around five dollars ninety nine per year and then we’ll need hosting So hosting is where you store all your website files So people can access that all around the world 24/7 and that’s gonna cost us around ten dollars a month all a dropship is the plugin that helps us automate the process of importing the products directly from Aliexpress and also semi automate the process of fulfilling that order and you can also Import the reviews which is going to help a lot with the social proof and help us sell a lot more stuff There’s also another plugin called weird dropship but that one has a free trial 7-day free trial I think and It costs $14 after that and they also limit the amount that you can actually sell which is I think 50 orders then they charge you $29 a month so it can get quite expensive and you don’t have that option of importing reviews So hourly dropship is the best option in my opinion and that cost $89 for a one-time fee So WordPress and also the theme that is free. The theme is included in the description, which you can download And basically you can get started for around $100 today. So open up a browser and we’re gonna go to Hostgator so H OS t g 8000 calm and then click on enter So this is where we’re gonna get our domain name and hosting we’re gonna click on web hosting on the top left So this is the most basic plan recommended for most beginners I personally recommend the baby plan because you can host unlimited domains Basically, you can have your friends domain your clients domain and your domain all hosted under one plan So the business plan is a little bit more expensive. So that is why we’re gonna go with the baby plan So click on sign up now So this is where you enter your domain name so for example My one might be called Your store 23 and click on the outside here if it’s actually available. It will come up with a tick if not it’ll come up with a cross and you might need to select a different one or Change your name if you own a domain name already then click on this tab up here Let’s scroll down here and you’ve got the domain privacy protection That basically protects your identity Alliance. So people can’t actually search up your website and you know find out your personal contact information So that depends on what you prefer. I’m just gonna leave it ticked for now So we’re gonna scroll down for the package type select, baby for the billing cycle the longer you select the more that you’re going to save so I might select 12 months and Let’s enter in a username Okay a security pin Scrolling down, so I’m going to quickly fill in all my billing information. I’m gonna blur everything out and then enter in a critical detail Okay, so you can also pay by paypal as well so once you fill that in scroll down and You want to uncheck all of these because I have videos on how to set all these things up for free on my youtube channel You do want to select a SSL certificate So basically that will give you the HTTPS right here and you’ll say that your website is secure so you do want to get this right now because it’s probably going to be the cheapest you can ever get it out and Also, I think Google starting from July 2018 they’ll require you guys to get a HTTPS. Otherwise, they’ll say non-secure Okay, so it’s really important they get that one for the coupon code. You can type in Hogan sure and click on validate So that will basically help you save a lot more money. So if you actually scroll back up here Then you’ll see that the discount has increased. Okay, so I’m gonna choose Just one month because this is just a demo tutorial and I’m not going to be using this website. So we’re gonna scroll down and Then we’re gonna click on your read and agreed to the Hostgator terms and service and then click on checkout now Okay, so once you’ve actually paid for that Then I’ll say Auto completed and you’ll also get an email which looks something like this your account information click into that and basically you’ll need to click into the URL here which takes you to the control panel login and What you’ll need to do is put in your username. So copy that username and put it into there and also copy over your password and Paste it in and then click on login Okay, so this is the Hostgator cPanel and what you want to do is click on build a new WordPress website And Then what you want to do is click on select a domain Leave this pot empty click on next So for the blog title I’m just gonna type in store dimmer so you can change that later on for the admin username put that in put in your first name last name and Also your admin URL Okay, and then click on you’ve accepted the terms in service and then click on install now So that might take a few minutes install. Ok. So once you’ve actually seen the installation has complete so what you want to do first is copy over the password to your clipboard and then you can open up a new tab and Then you can type in your domain URL. So for this one is your store 23 Com and then you want do forward slash WP dash admin and then click on enter Ok, so as you can see, it says the website cannot be reached yet And what that basically means is Hostgator is basically setting up your website on the back end and sometimes it might take Fifteen to twenty minutes for them to actually set it up So you might need to take a break and then come back later on. So it’s been about 25 minutes And basically we’re going to try and log back in. So type in /w P dash admin, and that should take you to the WordPress dashboard login panel So what you need to do is put in your user name that you’ve selected If you forgot that then they should also send you an email which has installation as completed So click into that and they’ll also have the password and also the login URL there, okay So what you’ll need to do is just paste that in and then click on login so once you’ve logged in a lot of stuff pops up, so I’m just gonna Click on close for all of these things for now. So let’s clean it up a little bit Okay So the first thing that you probably want to do is change the password so Hover over users and then you can click on all users So basically this tab you’re able to add in new users so for example You might have a virtual assistant to help you fulfill the orders or the orders or anything like that Then you can add them in so we’re gonna click on edit for our own one and then we wanna scroll down to the bottom and Then we want to click on generate password and then I’m gonna generate my password, which I actually remember Confirm that and then update profile The next thing that you want to do is you want to go to Settings and then you want to click on permalinks So we want to change the permalink structure from the default, which is this one here to the post name structure The reason for that is because for your pages you want that? title in the actual URL itself Okay, scroll down Save Changes. Now. The next thing that you want to do is click on plugins. So plugins are basically like applications but for your WordPress website So it comes pre-installed with a lot of different plugins What I’m gonna do is just deactivate them all first. So we try to get everyone on the same page and Then I’m just gonna delete them So I want to select all and then we want to delete and then apply Okay, so the next thing that we want to do is below this video click on the description and there should be a link to download the theme so download that onto your computer and Basically, it should look something like themify – shop zip Sometimes it might automatically unzip into a folder What you want to do is right click that folder and compress that back into the zip file like that Alright, so you want to go back to our website here and you want to go to appearance and click on themes?

We’re gonna be doing is configuring the menu So if you actually go and right click and open link in a new tab, you’ll see your home page Okay, so this is the menu up here and as you can see title you see your pages So we need to actually set that in So we need to hover over appearance and click on menus and we want to create a new top navigation menu to Do that we need to set in a menu name we’re going to name a top nav and then create menu Okay, select the pages that you want to appear on the top navigation up here so I’m gonna select let’s say about contacts and Also shop click on add to menu So I’m not going to add the homepage because people know that when you click the logo, it’ll take them to the homepage So we want to rearrange it just by dragging and dropping Just like that and then you can click Save menu and It will also actually need to click on main navigation so it actually displays there right and you can also set it up So whenever you add a new page, it will automatically add it to this menu top navigation menu So let’s just save to menu first and we’re gonna refresh our homepage Okay, so the pages are up here and that’s pretty good So we’re gonna do now is also set in a footer. So to do that what we need to do is we need to Click on create a new menu and Then we want to set in let’s say footer nav and then create menu and Then we want to display Terms of Service privacy returns shipping and I think that’s pretty much it. So let’s click on add to menu and then you can rearrange it if you need to so I might put shipping and Returns there and then select the footer navigation safety menu Okay. So before we go anywhere I do want to show you how to create a drop-down So sometimes you might want to have a drop-down because you might have several categories To do that. Let’s say you go back to the top nav and select that and What you need to do is click it and select it and basically drag it inside. So it’s called something called indenting so what happens is when you hover over about shop will pop out click on save menu and Then give this page here refresh hover over about shop comes out. Ok, and also your footer menu is displaying right there So let’s go back here What we want to do is add in the social media links So you can click on ‘theme if I shop here and click on themify settings. I Do is click on the social links tab here and Then basically all you need to do is copy in your profile URL and paste it into here So for example, I don’t have Twitter.

So let’s go back here to our themify shop and themify settings and What you can actually do is click on ‘theme settings So if you scroll down here to the theme appearance, you can change the header design to any one that you want But I like this one, so I’m just going to keep it as this and you can configure Basically the display settings as well. So for example, you don’t want that tagline to appear then you can exclude that Ok, so if you don’t want the search icon thing to appear Then you can exclude it and then basically save it. So for the footer design, I’m gonna keep it as defaults I want to exclude the site logo, and I also want to scroll down to footer text section Okay. So basically if you actually look here I want to remove this. This is actually for the text 1 and To remove that just click on hide Ok, so if you want to add your own so your store 2008 copyright or something like that then you can click on save Ok and then click on refresh and Then basically you have your own thing down there So what we’re going to do now is configure the homepage.

So we’re going to do now is click on back and Then what we’re gonna do is click on the home page settings we’re gonna set a static page and we’re gonna set it to a home page and Then click on publish Close that and Basically, what I gonna do is for our home page, it’s gonna take us to our just main URL. Ok and What we’re gonna do now is set in the default layout for our pages And before we do that, actually I need to put back my shop. All right in the header navigation So you can actually go to Menus here just by hovering over here And let’s drag that back up. So top now select and Then put that back ok save the menu Now we want to go to theme if I shop themify settings and Then what we can do is go to default layouts For this you want to scroll right down to the bottom to default page layout and I’m gonna open the website again So I’m gonna explain what I’m doing So for the page sidebar option, we want to select none and we want to hide the title on all pages So for example here, this is the title. This is a sidebar I wanna hide it and hide this as well and I also want to disable page comments. Click on save and then you can actually fresh that page so Right now we’ve got a blank canvas to work on and I’m gonna show you how to add in a hero image and Show you the basic features of the Builder Let’s open up a new tab, and we’re going to go to unsplash.com So this is where we’re going to get out images You can basically use all the images here for free whether it’s for commercial or personal without any crediting. Ok So let’s say for example, we’re creating a bag drop shipping store. We’re gonna search out men’s fashion and click on search So when you’re looking for an image look for an image where you can actually add text So for example this image here you can add text here This image here is not very good because if you add text, you know, it covers his face, right? So this image here is not too bad. We can put the text there and we can put a button there So if you actually choose a sort of portrait style image, it’s not really good because our website is in landscape mode So let’s take this one. For example, cuz he’s got the bag there and it looks pretty good. So we’re gonna click on download and Basically download that onto your computer. I already save that file So save it in there and what we need to do is edit the picture before we actually upload it so we’re gonna go to photo so f OT o are calm and Then what we’re gonna do is click on edit So you want to edit your images before you upload it? Because the file size will be too big So we’re gonna click on open and click on computer and we’re gonna find the file. So this is the original click on open and We’re gonna skip all tutorials What we’re gonna do first is resize the image. So click on resize as you can see, it’s quite large. We’re gonna set it to 1,800 and Then we’re gonna click on apply So what we’re gonna do now is scroll up and then click on crop okay set this one to 1,800 again and Then for the height set it to 1000 Okay, sort of rearrange it to where you want it to be So for example, I want that bag to show up and I don’t really want to crop out his head so I want to leave it about there click on apply and once you’ve done that click on save and You can save it as normal if you want to save it as high you need to log in to your Facebook So let’s click on download and download that onto your computer name it hero image already done that here click on save so once you’ve done that then you can pretty much just cancel that and Close that and come back to our website here So what I like to do is refresh the page before I begin So the Builder works properly and it refreshes every time you sort of update it So we’re going to turn on the Builder and we’re going to add the hero image in So you want to click on that little pencil icon there? Which is the options and for the row width you want it to be full with content? Ok So it goes all the way across as you can see For the row height, if you select that then basically the image will stretch the entire window size Okay We’re gonna leave that as defaults click on styling and for the background image click on that So you can set any gradients or a video for a video I recommend a YouTube video because then the video will load on YouTube servers. So we’re going to do for the background image We’re gonna click on browse library instead of upload Otherwise, it’s gonna upload and also crop that image so we’ll be really blurry so click on browse library click on select files and Upload the hero image that you have Downloaded from photo open once that is done insert file URL and For the background mode. I like to set it as full cover So just keep everything as is and what gonna do is click on padding So what we’re gonna do is stretch image out little bit so we can actually see that image so you want to deselect apply to all padding and Then what you want to do is type in 17.5% to the top 17.5% to the bottom as well So once we add the text and the button there We’ll stretch out the image further and you’ll be able to see the whole image. So we’re gonna leave that as is and Then we’re gonna click on done Alright, so once you’ve actually done that you can see this little spacing up here we want to remove that so to do that you can click on back end and That will take you to the back end of the website and what you want to do is scroll down to the themify custom panel section and click on page options and For the content width you want to set it as full width All right, and then click on update? Once that is done, then it’ll say it’s been updated and then you can click on View page So as you can see it’s removed the spacing All we need to do is turn the Builder again and I’ll show you how to add in text So the green icon here you can hover over it and it’ll pop out all the different modules So what you can do is actually click on the lock icon and it’ll basically lock this section in there So we’re gonna do is we’re gonna drop in a text module So this is a text module so click it and drag it and drop it in So for the content here, I’ve actually typed it up already. So what I’m gonna do is just copy that and then paste that in so quality bags for traveling and what I’m gonna do is set it to heading 1 So as you can see It’s changed the font for heading 1 I’ll show you where you can actually edit the heading 1 in a few seconds Okay. So what we’re gonna do is click on styling and as you can see, it’s black I sort of want to change the text to white so I clicked on styling tab and we’re gonna click on font So for the font color, I’m gonna change it to white All right, so it’s not very visible at the moment But I’m also going to add a sort of a gradient overlay color on top of that image So that white text will pop out a little bit more Sometimes you might have an image for example a darker sort of background image and now black might pop already So don’t really need to but I’ll show you how to do it. Anyway, so if you actually want to change the h1 Text you can actually go to click on a heading here heading one fonts for the font family You can change it. So open sans which is a very popular and very modern type of fonts which a lot of people use and I highly recommend so what you can actually do is go to Hogan shoe calm and I’ve actually got some resources for design, so you can look through the web design guide and I’ve also got basically The recommended google fonts and things like that here as well so what we’re gonna do is I’m actually going to just leave it as that font there and Then click on done. So let’s say you want to add a sub-headline so what you can do is just drop in another text module and then for the sub headline I’m going to put in this so I’m just gonna copy that and Paste that into there So it works very similar to any word editor You can just select that and click on styling and for the font, you can just change it to white again Click on done and what we’re gonna do is add a button So when people click on that button, it will direct them to our shop page so let’s look for a button and Just drop that below the text there Okay, so you can change the size of the button. I’m just gonna leave it as normal for the background Style, I’m gonna select square. Okay, so it gives us sort of a modern look and For the button text, I’m gonna type in SHOP NOW and For the color. I’m just gonna select black alright so you can also edit the Styling and click on button link to sort of have some more advanced options if you’re sort of like a designer or something like that, you can change the color and Everything like that. What gonna do is set in the link? So what we want to do is link it to our shop page so to do that I just copy in my Ural up here and Paste it into here and type in shop Okay, so when people click on that button it will take them to your shop page You can also set an icon and you can also set it to open a new tab as well. So it’s gone done now we’re gonna do is I’m gonna close that there and I’m gonna set in a Overlay color so click on the row options again, which is the pencil icon click on styling and Click on the overlay color so we’re gonna set in an overlay color, which is maybe a black and you want to change the opacity down to let’s say 0.2 which is about 20 percent and Then for the overlay hover when people actually hover over that section then it will change the specific color and then I change it to black again and I’m gonna change to 0.25 So it’s a little bit darker click on done save it and Close it So you can see that text pops out a little bit more and when people hover over it It becomes a little bit darker creates a really nice and professional subtle effect So as you can see the text is too close to the edges. I’m going to show you how to Move the text so you can turn on the Builder and What we’re gonna do is add some spacing on the left hand side So to do that you can do that in two ways. You can actually click on the text styling and Click on padding deselect that and let’s say you want to add some space on the left of that text So let’s say you want to add 5% and it moves that in okay So if that’s for the individual sort of module you can edit that for the individual But what we actually want to do is edit it for all these three modules So we can go to the pencil icon, which is the row options Click on styling and then click on padding and let’s say we want to add some space to the left. So we’re gonna add 5% To the left and that will move everything inside. So that looks pretty good. And click on save and What I might want to do is maybe change that text here maybe I might make it a little bit bigger so you can go to styling font and let’s say let’s change it to about maybe 18 or 20 I think 20 is not too bad 20 pixels and then click on save and then Close that and then You’re pretty much good to go So before showing you how to import the Aliexpress products I want to show you a little bit more about the builder because it’s really cool So what I like to do is generally set it to 50% if I have a lot of things to rearrange so it’s easier to rearrange and you can also use the undo function and This is the mobile responsive styling options here so for example If you click on mobile You can set in the specific font or the style of the font and the colors specific for each device, which is really cool And you can also export and import layout so for example, if you create another website, then you can import from file so you don’t have to recreate this layout again and If it’s on the same website then you can also save as layout and there are also lots of pre creative layouts which can use so click on that and These are all pre-designed layouts which you can basically click and then import onto your page and it saves a lot of time But it’s important that I show you some of the features and how to actually use it though So what you can actually do is you can also click on the down arrow here save as revision so let’s say you want to save that section because you’ve finished the hero section click on OK and If you make a mistake, then you can click down and load revision again alright, so what we’re gonna do now is we’re gonna go to Aliexpress, so let’s head back to our dashboard and we need to activate our Ali dropship plug-in first so scroll down to the bottom ala dropship blue and What you need to do is go back to email and copy the license key to your clipboard And then come to your license key here. Okay, paste it into here and then click on activate so it should say it’s valid and once you’ve done that you can click on refresh and Then what you want to do is click on import products Okay, so to import products we can go to use direct import So click on the red button and by clicking on that then you should get this red Sort of toolbar thing pop out in a few seconds Okay, and if you don’t then you can actually go to here click on the flag icon which is the ally dropship plug-in click on login and Hopefully you’ll actually connect that to the extension ok authorize that and Let’s go back here and try again. So go to ally dropship blue And Let’s go find a back. So so we’re gonna search for bags here women’s luggage bags men’s backpacks So when you’re looking for products? So make sure you have actually had the ally Dropship we plug in for the Chrome installed and you can see that it has a packet so when you’re looking for products make sure it has a packet otherwise shipping times are really slow and When I actually looking for products I click into the product and look at all the reviews So you want to make sure and check? the reviews and also see if the product has some really good images because these images can be Repurposed for social media contents and whatnot So if you scroll down here You can click on feedback and you can check out all the reviews so 90% That’s really really good Right and what we actually going to do later is actually import the reviews with the pictures So have a look at the product and click on product details Sometimes they have a video which you can download and then you can add to your store as well So this is all that information here So there are a lot of products research videos on YouTube so you can watch those ones as well But generally I like to pick products which I personally like to use and then that way I know how to sort of Target them right so I know where there they are You know what pages they follow an Instagram and I know what interest they’re in for Facebook targeting So if you actually scroll back up here and if we actually go back here, then you can actually sort by orders as well so you can see which are the top-selling products okay, what is there and for example if you’re in the United States and you only want to ship to the United States you can Actually select United States here So it ships from the United States and that way it’s gonna ship a lot quicker if you actually let’s say we click on let’s say this backpack here and You select ships from China you want to make sure that you have the e packet so normally for beginners I recommend Just selling to the United States only because sometimes if you sell to like say United Kingdom It’s like 20 to 40 days plus the processing which is like three to five days and that’s over a month So sometimes the customers might not be happy. So I highly recommend just starting off the United States first so once you’ve actually picked the product that you want to select then we can go back here and Let’s go find that backpack. I wanna get so click on men’s bag We’ve gotten backpacks here and I want to select the best match Okay, so let’s say I want to import this product. So let’s click into this product here You can also click here to check if it’s cheaper on other sellers. So to import that products you want to click on edits So the plug-in actually just downloads all that images and all the information automatically Ok in about a second this thing pops up here and what we want to do is change the title first So obviously that is quite long I’m just gonna name it. Let’s just say multifunction Travel backpack Just like that, okay, and I’m gonna copy the title and I’m gonna click on this icon here and I want to make sure To just have a just a short permalink as well. Click on so we’re gonna add a new category click on that and we’re gonna type in bag and Then click on add category Make sure that’s selected So you can look through the images that you want to include. So for example, this is not really related to the products we’re selling We’re going to delete some of the images I might delete that one as well. That one is really good really good. I Might delete. Let’s see. I Might keep that one Okay, so they have a lot of really really high-quality images, right So some of these maybe I might delete because I don’t want people to scroll down so much on that page I might delete that one Okay, so this is the cool part. Let’s say they have a logo here So you can easily remove the logo really easily. You can click on the pencil icon and you can click on brush and what you need to do is you need to just click here and it’ll basically Select the color. Okay, I forgot to press the the eyedropper tool. So click that and select here This will give you the color code of this gray area and what you want to do is you want to select the size and make it sort of thicker and Just rub it and like that. Okay So it just takes off the logo and then you can click on save Okay, so as you can see that’s removed and you can do that for each of these images. So let’s just do this one really quickly, I Drop a tool select the color change the size and color that in Click on save and then We’re pretty much ready to go. So we’re gonna also scroll down and Here, it applies the pricing formula. I’m gonna show you how to set the pricing formula in the actual plugin here Later, so, let’s go back to the tab Okay, so you can also click on apply to all variations and you can set in the price manually So the current price is 40 bucks. I’m gonna set it as maybe 69 Okay, the product price let’s set it as 89 Also, delete the variations which you don’t want to sell. I’m gonna leave that as is surfer ships from I’m actually going to lead that because the customers don’t need to know that so I’m going to select the cross and For the size. There’s only one size so I might delete that one as well So what we’re going to do now is we’re also going to delete the brand name and you can go through this and see What is relevant and what is not and then you can delete it or you can add an item, right? So once you’ve looked through everything here Everything is good to go Then what you want to do is click to add to import list Alright, so you’re gonna add that to the list rather than publishing it straight away because we still want to edit it a little bit So that’s gonna take a few maybe a minute or so so once that is done, you can go back to your website and then you can click on main and Then you can scroll to the products. Okay, so click on products here and then it should be a import list thing here and they can click on that and Basically, this is the list of product which is yet to be published so you can actually click on edit and you want to scroll Down look at all the information Everything looks pretty good and Then we’re gonna go to The settings here so for the product data It is a simple product because there is no different sort of variation for the product You can also click on the inventory and you can also change the stock quantity So for example two thousand might be a little bit too much so you might change it to like twenty-nine left Alright, and then you can click on shipping. It includes the dimensions and everything that you need for the linked products basically If you have more products Then when you actually search for a product here As an upsell on this product page the product that you select here will appear on the bottom of this product. Okay so for cross sells is if you have maybe like an accessory that goes This bag for example a laptop bag that you actually want to offer in the carts Then you would search for the product and apply it here So if this product is in the cart, then the laptop bag will also be suggested as a recommended Item to buy ok. So click on attributes. So all these informations have been downloaded by the plugin, which is really cool Advanced you can enable reviews Supplier information is pretty much just for your reference and also it helps in fulfilling the order So it can click on reviews and we can actually upload the reviews from the website here so we’re going to do is maybe we’re gonna select maybe four stars or higher and we might select up to 20 and Then we won’t click on this one so it will be sent to draft the problem in publishing it straight away because you sort of want to edit it some times and also, I want to translate reviews into my language and We also want to import reviews that the images only what we going to do is import now So as you can see it’s done now Before we go there and fix the reviews What we’re gonna do is we’re gonna go to here and I’m actually gonna copy some short description so make sure to write a good short description and Put it into here. Alright. So once you’ve done that then you can also add some product tags and then you can click on publish So, let’s take a quick look at that product so you can click on View product and Then you can see the product and it looks amazing So the quality of images is really good people can you know browse the images like that? You’ve got the long description here and Then you’ve also got the additional information which has all been uploaded. The reviews have been yet to be published so let’s go and publish those reviews click on the dashboard section and What you want to do is you want to go to comments? Okay, so some of the reviews are actually in different languages So if you actually go to the web here and you can click on feedback all of the reviews might be people from Russia or You know different countries as you can see then it tries to translate it into English. Sometimes it’s not very good quality so you want to edit it and Delete it as you see fit. So for example, I’m going to delete these ones. Delete this one This one is okay. So you can actually click on edits and Here you can see the images that have been uploaded as well so this image is not too bad So I’m going to leave that in there and I’m gonna click on update Okay, so what we’re gonna do is quickly sort of clean it up This one is not too bad. I might delete that text there. So click on edits High quality Something like that and you’ve also got the image there I might delete that one Okay, and then you can click on update or you can approve it directly here So once you’ve cleaned up all the reviews, so for example, if you want to approve it, you can select it just like that here and Here, okay Perfect and then what we’re going to do is click on the bulk actions click on approve and apply and Then what we can do is go to your store visit store and then you can check your products so click that products and As you can see you’ve got the eight customer reviews 5 stars And if you scroll down you’ve got the reviews and also the images there, which is really good for social proof Alright, so what we’re gonna do is I’m actually going to quickly add in three more products if you do want to rewind the video And watch that part again then please do so, so I’m going to quickly add them in Okay. So I’ve basically added in three products now, I’m gonna show you how to sit in the pricing formula so let’s go back to our dashboard section and scroll down to Allied dropship blue and click on that then you can click on these settings the pricing section and Then what I generally recommend you guys do is just click on add recommend it So that’s going to give you all the recommended pricing markup formulas for you know specific costs, right? So for example, let’s say the product costs $5, so that would be between here Okay, so five times two the price on your website will be $10 Okay, you can also add in a new formula so click on add new formula and then you can set in specific prices for example between the range of let’s say 50 to $75 you can multiply it by two So for example, it’s $50 in multiply by two that means on your website. It will be a hundred bucks so we’re gonna cancel that and Basically, the price rounding is you can actually set it in to be like, you know $69.99 so you can click on rounding and let’s say you want it to be $0.99 and then what you can do is click on update and Then what you need to do is click on start so sometimes you might need to click it once or twice and It might take a little while if you have quite a lot of products Okay, so that should be done and what we’re gonna do is we’re going to try and close and check our products So we’re gonna go to our store and check our products. Sometimes it hasn’t been updated But this time here, it’s all been updated and it’s all working Well, so what we’re going to do now is we’re going to add the products to our home page So we’re gonna click on the home page Logo thing there. So we’re going to do is turn on the Builder and then hover over the green icon scroll down and We’re gonna drag this WooCommerce module down here so you can drag that in Put that there and basically you can select by categories You can also filter by on sale top rated and featured products So I’ll show you how to set in the featured products in a sec and you can select specific Categories and you can scroll down and basically edit the display settings. So I want to limit it to maybe only three and You can also change the layouts here and all the little details you can play around with that and then you can click on done Alright, so what we’re going to do is also add a little bit of text on top so we’re gonna drag in maybe let’s say a fancy heading and Then we’re gonna type in maybe Featured products and then the heading on top maybe Our favorites Or something like that Okay and then click on done and what we also need to do is To add some spacing on the top and add some spacing on the bottom So if we actually don’t do that, then it’s going to be too close to the hero image So we’re gonna click on the row options for this row click on styling padding deselect apply to all I want to set about a 5% to the top and Maybe I’m gonna set a 5% to the bottom Okay Click on done and save And then you can close it and you can view how your website looks Alright, so everything looks pretty good at the moment. What I’m gonna show you how to do now is to configure your shop page and Basically add in a product filter. So what we’re going to do is we’re going to go to the dashboard section and You want to make sure you have the product filter plugin activate it as well. So click in the product filters and Click on add new and Then what you want to do is maybe just type in the shop page You can leave all these as defaults. So these are all the Widget things that you can drop in so let’s drag the product title there for the field title. We want to type in search The next one we might put maybe a price filter So you can select a slide or arrange and then we’re gonna select a category and drop it down there I’m just gonna leave it maybe as Defaults except for let’s say that radio Okay, so click on the radio and then you can also add in maybe on sale So just drag it down to the bottom and I think that’s pretty much all I want to add. So we’re gonna click on save So that’s been updated then you can actually close that and that will generate a shortcode so you can paste this shortcode in to a Sidebar so copy that shortcode onto your clipboard then what you want to do is hover over appearance and click on widgets and Then you want to see the shop sidebar section there. So what we’re going to do is look for a text widget. So T Click on it and let’s drag it into the shop sidebar Okay paste in that shortcode there and then click on save So what we’re going to do is I’m gonna open up the store page now on another page and Then what we also need to do is go to the themify shop themify settings We want to go to shop settings So the shop settings will basically configure everything on Your shop page and also in the product page as well. So for example, we want to add a Product filter here. So we need to add a sidebar. So go back to your settings and What we need to look for is at the product archive. We want to set a shop page sidebar on the left hand side So right now it was no sidebar one select it on the left and also for the product layout I only want to select three products in one sort of row and then I also want to disable masonary layout and You can play around with all the display settings here So what we’re going to do now is just click on save and I’ll give you that a little preview Okay, so that’s really awesome and let’s say for example, you try the filter What you can do is let’s say click on leather bags then only you’ll of the bags will show up or you can click on all and Then you can also use the pricing filter as well so you can try that So it works really well and let’s say we click into the product page So you can also edit Display things here as well. So for example, you might not want the SKU showing up Then you can go back here scroll down to the single product page You can also change the product page layouts. So I want to hide the product SKU so what I recommend you do is to open up a window and basically just play around with the settings and Let’s click on save Refresh that and then that should be disappeared ok What I want to do is go back here scroll down. I am gonna change the wishlist settings Well, you do need to do full of the wishlist, which is basically like a favorite thing is create a wishlist Page and set that in. So right now I’m just going to delete disable it and This spark animation thing is basically let’s say when you click, you know, Add to Cart That’s the spark and you can disable it or change the color as well. So let’s click on save so let’s go to pages and What we’re gonna do is we’re going to edit out about page first. So click on edit Now when you actually put in text here you won’t be able to use the front-end builder so we want to click on to the page and Go to the front-end and then turn on the Builder So what we’re going to do is we’re going to separate the columns into two So one side we’re going to put an image. So we’re going to hover over here we’re gonna grab an image module drop that in and We’re gonna close that and we’re gonna browse library upload files select files and I’ve already cropped an image on photo already This about us in May click on open So the image size that I’ve copped it as is about 800 x 553 so anywhere around that size is sufficient. You don’t want it to be that big. Otherwise, it’s gonna take too long so insert file URL and That is pretty much all you need to do so you can click on done Alright, the next thing we’re going to do is we’re gonna drop in a fancy heading So we’re gonna do maybe about us As you can see and then we say maybe our story Click on done. Now. The next thing we’re going to add in is a text module so let’s drop in a text module there and I’ve already written some text. So I’m gonna copy that straight from my word document and Then just paste that in ok, so that’s really really simple to do click on done and let’s say you want to link your text to another page so you can double click on the text module and let’s say for example you want to say Contact us or something like that, right? Contact us if you have any questions and you want to link the contact us to another page you can select that text click on insert link and then you can click on link options and What you can do is search for your contact page here, or you can paste an external URL Click on add link and that’s how you hyperlink things and then click on done Right, so it’s really simple What I also like to do is hover over the top left here this icon here and do a column alignment to the middle So that image aligns up with the other side here Alright and then click on save so another really cool thing is if you click on the plus icon here you can click on the rows and If you ever want to, you know speed up the process you can actually use all these pre created rows so let’s say for example this call-to-action thing here you can drag it and then you can basically just drop it under there and That will add a call to action section like that onto your website in seconds and basically double-click it and then you can add some text like that and then you can click on the button and You can link it to whatever page that you want. Okay, so it’s really simple what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna click on delete for this one and Click on save so the next page that we want to work on is We want to work on Our contact page. So let’s click on contact and I’ll show you how to add a really simple contact form to your website click on turn on build up and What we’re gonna do is we’re gonna separate it to this column thing here okay, so this middle section there and I want to sort of expand it a little bit to maybe let’s say 15 percent on one side and maybe say 15 percent on the other side. I Think that’s pretty decent then what we’re gonna do is I’m gonna drop in another fancy heading sir contact Us and Maybe on the top. We’d love to hear from you Click on done and then we’re gonna do is we’re gonna drop in a contact form module so drop that in there so you should have installed the Plug-in earlier and if you have then you’ll be able to easily do it so all you really need to do is for this Center you need to put in the email that You want the message sent to so for example, I want to send it to 91 tutorials Gmail.com that’s what I’ll do and you can also change the layout here. You can play around with the display settings as well For example, let’s align the button into the middle Into the center, you can click on styling and you can edit each of the different sections there But that looks pretty nice and I’m just gonna leave it as is. Alright, so click on save And close now The next page we’re going to be working on is the shipping page So click on shipping down here now. I want to show you something really cool as well, which is the accordion module So turn on the Builder and let’s separate the columns into that again and Let’s move it to maybe let’s say sixteen sixteen percent over there So basically why I do that is because I don’t want the text going from one side to the other So it’s kind of hard to read if the eye has to move from here to here That is why most blog posts and they’re sort of width is about this size or less So what we’re going to do is we’re going to drop in another fancy heading so let’s drop in Shipping and then for the heading maybe Our shipping and then click on done so click over here again, and you can drop a accordion module So what this basically is is when people click on it, it will expand. So we’re gonna go back to my word document here and then let’s copy over this text and put that in as a title so you can see that there and Then for the content, I’ve got the content here So what you can do is you can come to my website you’ll store 23 and copy in the content Alright, so click on add new row Next one will be how I mean when will I receive my order? Paste it in. Let’s grab the text here Paste that in we’re gonna add two more really quickly Okay, so that is done now what you can do is for the accordion color You can set it to transparent which I like You can also play around with the appearance here and also cut a starling as well. So let’s click on done and Let’s click on save and let’s close it So when people click on it then it’s going to expand So basically if you have let’s say, you know, ten different questions and answers It’s gonna take up the whole page and it’s just not going to be very user friendly So when you do this people can click on what they want to See and then close it up like that Now the next thing we’re going to do is go to returns and we’ve got the returns policy Written out here. Basically, all you need to do is you copy it and then you can change your email address so we’re gonna do is change that to this one again change it to about 16% Okay, and then what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna drop in maybe this time just a plain text module and Then we’re gonna do just paste in the text match style Just something like that and then returns policy Okay, and then I’m gonna change it to heading one Something like that Looks okay. So for example, I’ve actually included email address Where you actually should put your email address, okay, so You can change it to your email address and pretty much you’ll be good to go and you can edit it to what you need All right. So I think that is pretty much it for the email address. You may want to check it I’m gonna try and format it properly quickly Okay, then click on done right click on save Now the next part I’m going to show you is the privacy policy so for the privacy policy can click on the privacy page and What you can actually do for the privacy policy is you can go to a website which is called free privacy policy comm so Open a new tab and type in free privacy policy comm and you can actually generate a privacy policy specific for your ecommerce store within five minutes and then we can do is basically copy that and Paste it into here. Okay. So what I’m gonna do is just paste in the URL that you can actually go to Okay, so you can go to this website here Done to generate your privacy policy for your privacy page now for the Terms of Service We’re gonna go and copy that as well. So go to there and basically I have The terms of service here ready and I’m just going to paste it in so this is the Shopify one And basically I have just taken their one For demo purposes.

Let’s expand this area again Okay, and let’s drop in a text module Set in the title Terms of Service Change it to heading one click on done save and Pretty much we are ready to go So what we’re gonna do now is we’re going to go and set in the WooCommerce settings. So let’s go to our dashboard section and What we want to do is go to WooCommerce here and click on that So basically, this is where you manage orders. We’re going to be clicking on settings So make sure your address is correct and generally I’ll leave everything as defaults so what we’re going to do is you can actually click on products and all these different tabs here to manage the WooCommerce settings So basically, I normally just keep it as default as well for taxes here. I’ve actually enabled the automated taxes So you’ll need to basically log in and connect it to jetpack for that to happen So that’s gonna save you a lot of time for shipping. I generally set it as free shipping So if you go here and then you can actually select the zone So if you want to just send to the United States Then basically you can manage the shipping options for locations not covered and you can just turn that off and then Save Changes Ok. So basically you only ship to the United States because a packaged shipping will be really quick for United States so the next thing that you want to make sure to do is for your payment’s you want to make sure to put in your paypal email so here is your paypal you want to take that to enable it and You also want to click on setup to make sure you put in your paypal email.

This is where you select the terms and conditions page ok, so here you want to select the Terms of Service and make sure these ones are correct and Then pretty much you can just click on Save Changes So if you want to create coupons for maybe your influences then you can select coupons here So click on coupons and click on create your first coupon So for example if the influencers name is let’s say Jake and You’re giving his it audience maybe 20% off. So Jake 20 and Then what you do is set in a discount type for example, maybe a percentage discount for 20% I think and You can also allow free shipping So for example, sometimes you might have a threshold for free shipping and if people use it Then it doesn’t matter if you know, they they reach that threshold or not. It will give them free shipping Ok, so I’m gonna select that and you might want to select a coupon expiry and You can also set the usage Restrictions here as well as the limits. Okay, so you can click on publish and That is pretty much just how you set up the coupons So what I’m going to show you next is adding in your Facebook pixel. So adding in the Facebook pixels is important because You’re able to retarget the people who actually go to your website and also create look-alike audiences so you can target similar audiences which you know have bought from your website and That is really where the money is and then I’m also going to be showing you how to add in Google Analytics So you can actually track what your visitors are doing on your website so you can figure out you know how to actually improve it okay, so to install your Facebook pixel, what I recommend is going to business facebook.com/ and Signing up and creating a business account. Okay. So once you have a business account, then you want to log in and click on log in so that will take you to your business manager and What you want to do is create a new add account So for example, what you can do is you can click on the three things here and then you can click on business settings and Then for example, what I do is go to add accounts and then click on add and then you can create a new add account here and let’s say this one is called your Store 23. I’ll set in my payment method and then create a add account Okay, so we’re gonna select me as the person who runs it and then Save Changes and then click on close So now what you want to do is you want to click on here again? Click on all tools and click on pixels here events under events manager. Ok So what you can do is you can select your add accounts. So the new one is your store I’m going to click on that one and Then what you want to do is create pixel Okay, I’m just gonna leave it as is and then click on create So automatically creates a pixel for you And what we need to do is basically get the code and paste it into our website so what we’re gonna do is click on manually install the coder yourself and It tells you to locate the header code for your website which I’ll show you in a second so you can copy this just click it and you’ll copy your pixel code and then you can go back to your website here go to themify shop themify settings and Then what you can do is scroll to header code, so this is under general tab and You can just paste that in there. Okay, so that use your Facebook pixel code and then click on save So once that is saved you probably want to check it out and see if it’s actually sort of on your website. So Go back to your home page. And what you can do is try to right click and then You can do maybe a page source and Then we can do is do ctrl or command F and then just do a pixel search and then as you can see Here it is. Okay, so that’s installed onto our website So the next thing that you probably want to do is install the Google Analytics so what I recommend you do is just go to type in Google Analytics and Then click on the first result here and you’ll need to create a new account. So I’m gonna create a new account Hopefully that works Okay, sign up for analytics at the code, so we’re gonna click on sign up Alright, so your new account. So for the website name, I’m just gonna call it your store 23 and I’m gonna keep the website name the same here and your URL so you can just grab your URL directly from here Come back paste it in here. You do need to delete the front part because it’s included they already delete that and change it to HTTPS Industry we’re gonna select maybe Let’s say fashion, maybe or something like that Shopping reporting timezone Australia We’re gonna select Melbourne, okay, and then click on get tracking ID. We’re gonna look for Australia here Except that’s Okay, not sure why it’s so hard to scroll down so I’m just gonna try and zoom out of the browser just like that and then we’re gonna click on accept and Then it shoot load up We’re gonna zoom back in to my browser Okay, so that is all connected what I want to do for this tracking ID is also Enable the e-commerce sort of tracking as well. So what we’re gonna do is look for that. I think that is in property settings Scroll down Okay, it’s not in here let’s click on user management Okay, so once that is popped up then you can click on your all website data here scroll down to ecommerce settings and then you can enable e-commerce and I’m just going to click on save here. Alright, so we’re going to do is go back to our website Go back to dashboard and we’re gonna Inc install a plugin So click on plugins Add new and We’re gonna search for let’s say Google Analytics dashboard Hopefully it pops up so this is the one we want to install by exact metrics install now Activate We want to scroll down and click on Google Analytics And we want to connect it. So make sure you’re logged in to Google Analytics account and then authorize plug-in and Click on get access code Choose your account Allow Copy that to your clipboard Come back here and paste it in Save it So as you can see, it should be selected If you have multiple accounts, then select the website that you want to track and then lock selection click on Save Changes and what I want to do as well is I want to go to the tracking code here and Then I want to click on you can click on each tab and you can see what you want to track and stuff like that but what I want to do is exclude tracking for admin so basically If you’re viewing the website or whatever Then it’s not going to actually count as a view or something like that and you can also play around with these ones as well Advanced Settings, okay integration here, I want to enable the e-commerce plugin tracking Save Changes and Then what you can do is click on dashboard and then you should be able to actually view the Google Analytics dashboard somewhere Okay, so here it is and you can see the real-time and things like that as well and you can see all the basic stats If you want a more advanced view then what I recommend is going to your Google Analytics account. So in click on home and Here you’ve got all the different reports that you can actually have a look at okay, so that’s pretty much it Now what I’m going to go through now is how to find the best Instagram influences to promote your products and also show you something in facebook ads So let’s go through the 10th tips on Instagram promotion The first thing that you want to do is build out your profile. So you want to add as much social proof as possible So when people go to your page, then they say like oh, this is actually a real product a real brand They’ve got real people behind it. So you also want to add real value to people’s feeds You don’t want to just repost all the Express images because that just looks really scammy You want to do some editing by yourself on photo com or if you have photoshop skills then use that to your advantage And you can also use unsplash for a lot of free images And I also know that a lot of people actually buy accounts like for example They buy an account for two or three hundred dollars which has 10 to 15 K followers that means you get the swipe up option and Also, it shows that your account has been followed by a lot of people So obviously that’s probably against instagrams Terms of Service, but that is what some people actually doing The second thing is make sure to look how big brands are actually doing it So the best advice is to actually study and reverse-engineer successful companies rather than focusing on successful drop shipping companies So what successful? Companies do they actually send their products to people who might actually like that product and then they ask them to do a shout out Or something like that And it’s really easy for people to actually trust their own friends And then they’re more likely to buy from real friends recommending them their product rather than just a random fanpage, right? So the third thing is to sell something they believe in So not only selling a great quality product will help you decrease returns and stuff like that it’s gonna be really embarrassing if you actually send a influencer a bad product and what I recommend you do is to make sure to check out the reviews and pictures on Aliexpress website and try to buy that product for yourself and then you can create custom videos with your own sort of problem and Solution that product actually solves it just sets you apart from all the other competition that you have Number four you can reuse the content so reuse the content from the influences that promote your products so you can use it in your stories post and also in your highlights as Testimonials. So again that adds social proof to your Instagram feed The fifth thing is find pages without emails in the bio So what I notice is a lot of pages with emails in the bio do heaps of promotions They do like several promotions every day So what I recommend is to actually follow them and check what they actually promote Because you don’t really want pages that promote every single day you want pages that don’t promote as much But actually provide a lot of value to that audience, right? It’s going to be a much more effective if you have a page which promotes less but the audience trusts and more right? So the sixth thing is does the page owner engage in? Conversations if they do it means that the followers are much more likely to listen to what they have to promote right? So there are a lot of pages which have generic comments like awesome cool. I generally stay away from those ones the 7 thing is you can use tags to sort of browse and find your Influences so you can start off for example, if you’re selling bags then You know men’s leather bags then I will look at maybe car pages right So I might type in hashtag Porsche and then I’ll slowly look into the categories and then I will click on the blue down arrow to look at all the related pages and then I normally go deep and try to Find the really good ones The 8th thing is you can put their name into the Instagram calculator so you can go to influence our marketing hubs website Which I’ll put up right now and you can check out their engagement rates, right? The 8th thing is to use deep social. So this is a really cool app that gives you 5 free credits So what it actually does is you put in their Instagram handle and then you’ll show you a detail demographic of that page so for example If you just want to target us people then you don’t want to a page which has majority of the people from like Indonesia Thailand or India or something like that? And also if you’re promoting to men then you want a page which has mostly men, right? Otherwise, it’s gonna be less effective. The tenth thing is stacking. So not many people talk about it, but Remember like the last time you bought something from Instagram, right? Normally, you don’t get that stuff the first time you see that brand right then why would someone else buy that right? So what I like to do is to target similar pages that the same people would follow So what I mean by that is so let’s say someone likes Kylie Jenner, right? So it’s very likely that if they like Kylie Jenner then they’re following, you know, the whole Kardashian family, right? So if the Kardashian family sort of promotes this product over and over again People are gonna see it on Let’s say Kylie Jenner’s page and then they see it on Kim Kardashian’s page Then they see it on you know The other Kardashian’s pages and then like the first time they’re gonna buy it when I see it second time They’re gonna be like, oh, what’s this third time? They might check out your page Fourth time is maybe like they’re about to buy it But they didn’t buy then the fifth and sixth time then they’re really likely to buy from you Right. So on a smaller scale, right if you’re talking in car pages and what I’ll do is target Let’s say super cause of California then I’ll look for all the supercar pages within that same area Because it’s really likely that you know people within the same area are following the same types of pages and then I’ll set it up to be like You know day one to day seven so each influencer promotes on a separate day So let’s say my brand is called piece right then they’ll see you know It’s advertised on this page and then next day is on this page Then it makes the product seem sort of trendy and that it is like hot, you know what I mean? So that is pretty much it. What I’m gonna do now is show you a simple trick in Facebook Ads Okay. So the first thing I highly recommend you do is check out Kevin David’s Facebook video I’ll put a link down in the description so that’s like a 60 minute video on setting out Facebook Ads step-by-step, but one thing he didn’t actually cover was Actually setting up a conversion ad by using a existing ad So basically when you actually first set up a Facebook ad the first thing that you want to do is set up a post engagement ad the reason for that is because you want social proof and You want it to get it really cheaply so you target third-world countries with that, right? So once you actually done that then what you need to do is you need to grab that post ID so I’m basically going to show you how and where to grab that post idea and Basically how to set up the conversion ad for it So basically, let’s say in my campaign here a website video engagement campaign, then I’ll click on the fourth column ads so let’s say this one got the most engagement and basically, I’m gonna click on edit here and That will take me to the ad so you’re gonna click on links and manage Facebook comments and that will take you to the ad that you created and it will basically have like 1.3 K views and it has a lot of social proof. Okay so you want to copy the ID here which is at the end and then once you’ve done that then you can actually go back to here and Click on campaigns and then click on create a new campaign So once you’ve actually set up the engagement campaign, the second step is setting up a conversion campaign. So click on continue and You’ve also got some guidance here on left hand side So for example right now what I’m going to do is set everything up here like for my Audiences and stuff like that and then I’ll show you where it’s actually add in the existing post and then I click on continue Okay, then you want to click on here use existing post and then here what you want to do is enter post ID and then basically you can just paste that in click on submit and I’m gonna turn off my adblock and I might do it refresh Okay, so that’s going to show up with the engagement there so when you actually run a conversion ad Then it’s going to be a lot cheaper because people are going to see that you know It has social proof then they’re more likely to click into that. Okay, so that’s basically how you do it What I recommend again is to watch Kevin David’s video So basically right now I’m actually going to show you how people are actually going to order From your drop shipping store and actually how to actually fulfill that order So once a customer arrives on your website, let’s say for example, they click on shop now Then that’s going to direct them to a shop page and they might use the filter for example socks So as you can see I’ve added in socks because I actually want to buy it for myself and it’s actually really really cold Right now so that’s why I’m gonna just buy it for myself. I’m gonna click into that and Let’s say for example, they click this one here. They add that one to cart and as you can see it pops up here they can click on view cart and If they have a coupon, they can apply a coupon the taxes are automatically calculated and that’s zero and then they click on proceed to checkout and then basically I’m actually just going to fill in my actual information because it’s gonna actually automatically load up into the Aliexpress website so we’re gonna put in my address here and stuff like that. I’m also going to put in a phone number and then we’ve got the email address scroll down free shipping total $4.99 that Will select this and they’ll proceed to PayPal. So if they don’t have a PayPal account, they can also pay with their credit card by Using PayPal as well. So basically that is logging me in Okay, and then I’m gonna click on Pay Now Alright once that is completed I’m gonna click on not now. Alright so once that is completed then you can return or they can return to the cells website and basically, you’ll receive a confirmation as a customer and also you will also receive a basically order email if your seller okay, and then basically what you do is go to the dashboard and then you would go to WooCommerce and then click on orders and There should be your order. Right? So basically the order is here and then you just click into it okay, and then what you do is place order automatically and Basically the Ahly dropship plug-in will add that to the cart. Okay, so that took about 15-20 seconds Now that’s gonna automatically help you fill in the customers detail right now Okay, so you do want to check the order make sure the address is correct Okay, so there should be a forward slash there and make sure to select the city Okay, so make sure to double check that shipping address and also double check the phone number as well so we’re gonna save and ship to this address and then scroll down and Basically that has all been selected. Okay, so I’m actually going to change The number of pairs so I’m gonna actually order let’s say three pairs. Okay, because this is just for myself and For example, you can leave a message here saying that this is a drop shipping order. Okay, we are drop shipping Please do not include any invoices in the package All right so then we’re going to scroll down and you’ll basically pay by your Visa credit card or the other payment methods if you actually pay by paypal I think they charge a fee on that as well. And then you will basically click on confirm and pay So once that is done Then you should receive a notification from Aliexpress within the next three days to say that left ship the order so you can also come here and click on my orders and that will basically Be able to view all the orders that you have actually placed Right, then you can go back to the website and there you go It’s been completed close that and then you can also change the status to let’s say processing Okay, and then you can click on update or anything like that? and that is pretty much it so besides that what I do want to show you is I want to go to the website and I’m going to show you where you can add your logo so you can click on customize and Then you go to themify options here click on site logo and tagline site logo So here you can change your site title. So for example, I’m just gonna call it your store 23 Or you can add a logo image here. Basically, you need to click on this and upload a PNG file So what I recommend is checking out fiber because you can get logos for five dollars It’s much easier than creating your own or just use a simple site title And let’s say you can just you know change your font like that and then change the font weight Just like that which looks pretty good. And then you can also change the color as well. So for example to Okay, so that looks pretty good publish. And also I’ll show you where to add in your fab icon So when you’re actually getting a logo from Fiverr, you can also request a fab icon as well so you can close that and Then you can go to your dashboard section and then go to themify shop themify settings and Then you can upload your favicon here. So the size of the favicon should be 32 times 32 Pixels and it should also be a PNG file so it should be it should appear somewhere here once you’ve saved it so I’m also going to make a video on how to Customize the look of your website and I’ll include that link to that video or that resource page down below So basically if you liked this video, make sure to give it a thumbs up subscribe and turn on that notification bell So I’ll be uploading a lot more videos within the coming weeks Cute and see you guys in the next tutorial

  1. Hogan! Thanks again for a great video. Your approach to teaching is very candid and transparent, and of course, extremely educational and inspiring.
    Always looking forward to your next video, thanks again!!!

  2. Hi Hogan, thank you so much for the tutorial, I got the themify download but on WordPress it’s saying an update is available for contact forms but am unable to get it as it’s asking for themify login details…are the updates important? Do I need to get themify from the website? Thanks again!

  3. Always got a lot of useful knowledge from your video, one thing turn me a bit sad is I watched your video after I brought the Ali drop ship plugin which I have no chance to use your coupon code?

  4. Hey Hogan, I went through a few YT vids and decided your tutorial suited me best. I did almost everything to the T and feel quite empowered by the knowledge in your video. Gives a very strong basis to dig around more specific areas if and when I want to. Thanks so much for sharing ?

    On another note you reference another tutorial @ 31:46 and say you'll link it in the description, which I couldn't find. If you can include that reference I'd love to go through that tutorial as well.

  5. woocommerce change order status automatically to Processing not like the you show in your video . When you order it becomes a status On hold – Can anyone help me how to turn off automatic processing status

    I want to change as it appears in the video manually???

  6. Dear Hogan, i purchased Themify from your Affiliate Link today but i can;t see the Woo-commerce Module 1:01:26 please your support from where i can find it, Thanks & appreciate your support.

  7. Hogan, you are wonderful presenter. I just finished watching your video and created an amazing eCommerce website, it is 4.15am. Sleepless night ! Thank you.

  8. Great video mate – I was looking for a good way to semi-automate shipping and it seems alidropship is the way to go. I do have one question – not related to the content but what was the track name of the music at the end of the video? 🙂

  9. Hi.. what is ur comment on if more that 500 products woocommerce start to hang ?it is stated in alidropship portal. Can u test it how is it on ur webshosting ? Thanks..

  10. Hi Hogan
    Thanks for this awesome tutorial!
    I have a quick question….I have a Personal Plan with WordPress and it comes with a domain. I've tried to follow your guide, however, WordPress wants me to upgrade to a Business Plan in order to download plug ins and themes. Is there a way to get around this without having to pay for an upgraded plan? Or would it be easier to restart and use Hostgator? My WordPress plan just renewed and I am still in the cancellation window period.

  11. hey how can i get the licsense key of the theme ..? bcz there is an update in theme and for doing that i need licsense key

  12. Hogan! how can i enable the variation of the product? if i will turn it in to variable products it will appear out of stocks.

  13. Try Fulfillman Dropshipping service they handle all my shopify business and really help me to grow up easy! thanks Angela and all the team for your help!!

  14. Hi Hogan. A question. Do we need to speak to suppliers before hand or we can just select & add products to our website and just submit order to supplier mentioning its a dropshipping order.
    The only challenge i think is if we have 100s of items do we need to speak to every supplier before hand?

  15. Hello. When he tries to send a message via the contact form, he shows the error: "There was an error. Please try again" Please help me!!!!

  16. Excuse my you tube name its a long story haha, but let's say I'd want to drop ship a pair of Nike's shoes from Ali express, would that be Ok for me to sell them from Ali express into my woo commerce store without any issues? For the benefit of it being authentic etc.

  17. Hey would you mind doing a video covering other plugins that would be best to insert into this ecommerce website to make it more beneficial?

  18. I have a lot of experience within selling online, but a question I have is when opening a shopify or Woo commerce store, do you launch your store if its for a specific niche or product such as for instance the coffee market. Or would i be able to open ONE store for a variety of products and wouldn't be limited to one specific category, for example my store would contain not only coffee related products, but shoes, accessories, clothing etc. Or should i open multiple stores for multiple categorized products? Im kind of confused on that.

  19. Thanks for all this. How does one set up a collection as opposed to a category? I need to have both in my store.
    Thanks

  20. Hi Hogan, for a beginner would you recommend someone living in Australia to drop ship to the US only or worldwide?

  21. Many Thanks Hogan Chua

    I watched approx 6 top videos about WooCommerce & AliDropship,

    Very Helpful

  22. Hi Hogan. First of all, thank you so much for this tutorial it's really good. I have followed you step by step and its been amazing however for whatever reason, my aliwoo format look nothing like yours. Yours look way more streamlined and easy whereas I cant get anything remote close to look like yours. the Aliwoo dropship pluggin is not featuring this (52:33/1:43:59) at all. Im using the basic themify builder you have in the link. Could it be that? im a bit freaked because I dont feel like i would be able to do this on my end but if it looked like yours it might have been attainable. Please Help! thanks in advance. Any chance I could What'sapp call?

  23. Hey Hogan, how does one add faqs, terms of conditions, contact forms, does this have to be one manually or is there some sort of pre-set up? thanks!

  24. So if you were to dropship lets say from aliexpress, would people be willing to wait for their purchases to arrive since it is an ePacket service?

  25. May I know how come when I want to publish the comments as shown in your video at min 58:20, I received this message : An appropriate representation of the requested resource could not be found on this server. This error was generated by Mod_Security. How come like this? Please advise. Thanks.

  26. wow!!! I thought I was watching a movie. A whole bunch of REAL stuff here…
    Am taking ACTION!!!
    But is this same as creating an aliexpress affiliate store???

  27. Very good content and right to the point ! I appreciate .
    I subscribed to your channel

  28. I have actually downloaded this video to serve as a reference. Im a newbie on dropshipping and on the process of building one at the moment. This video helped me a lot.

  29. You are saying ali express deliver directly to customer. So the package will contain aliexpress adress and all. Is there any option to deliver in our own store address from ali express?

  30. One thing confused me about everything.

    When the process of customer buying a product will the full sum of the customer purchase go into my account and then withdraw the fee I have towards AliExpress or will it just split up the purchase and send me my part and send rest into AliExpress? Think that's a need to know, so I don't wake up one day with 0$ in my bank and gotta wait for PayPal to pay up while eating crumbles.

  31. Hi there Hogan.
    just a small problem, I'm having trouble updating the themify themes and builders can you please provide the latestest versions of all the plugins you used from themify in a download link. thanks

  32. Hi, Your video is fantastic and very easy to understand! I have one question if you don't live in USA, when we setting the woocommerce do we have to put any usa address? if we put it any usa address how about pay , actually not live in usa

  33. That great man, you know I was thinking of getting someone to make a webside for me because I was clue less but now I know. Thanks a lot

  34. Can I use this to do dropshipping from other dropshipping besides Aliexpress or sell my own products ?

  35. Hello Hogan I am following you and things are going great but I am stuck at the section where you add feature products on home page. I click the frontend builder and hovered over the green X but i do not have any woocommerce module

  36. Hello Hogan! May I know where is the link to the video on how to get those additional services at 4:57 for free? Thank you!

  37. Thanks!!,I have a questions: If I buy a hosting for 1 month then its expired. I want to know that an alidropship plugin which i bought the last time can use together with my new hosting or not? Or i should buy a new one?

  38. I’m just wondering if the customer order different products, will the AliExpress suppliers shipped them separately one by one to the Customer?

    Thanks

  39. I like the way you explain things but I am stuck at on themify download. Can you please help me with that.

  40. I am at the part where i have installed dropship woo and changed the php version (in my case to 7.1) the woo app does not appear on my left tool bar as it does on your video and i have no error is there a solution?

  41. What was the font of the header before you changed it to Open Sans (City Bags For Travelling)? I want to change mine back to the original, but I have no idea what it was.

  44. Hi Hogan, thanks a lot for this tutorial, Im doing everything at the moment. I have a problem with "really simple SSL" with the follow: Detected possible certificate issues
    Really Simple SSL failed to detect a valid SSL certificate. If you do have an SSL certificate, try to reload this page over https by clicking this button:

    Reload over https

    The built-in certificate check will run once daily, to force a new certificate check visit the SSL settings page. Really Simple SSL requires a valid SSL certificate. You can check your certificate on Qualys SSL Labs.

  45. Is there any way to automate the order from aliexpress process? Do you need to also do the same thing through shopify?

  46. Hello Hogan,

    08/13/2019

    I have just arrived in this world of dropshiping and I see you are very generous and thank you for all of us.

    I listened to your training video with the utmost care and followed your instructions.
    Hosting, domain, SSL, install WordPress, buy the Alidropship plugin, install Woocommerce and theme (themify-shoppe)
    All works fine, except that my products only stay three days displayed and disappears.
    I do not see them anymore on the online store, but they are good in products on wordpress admin.

    Does that tell you something?
    What can I do ?
    Thank you so much.
