I recently opened a Shopify store and am looking to add some payment processors. The only thing is the payment processors are asking for real company details. I only want to do some dropshipping, which I do no think needs a real company.
If you’ve done this before without a company please shed some light on this. thanks.
You just summarized my entire experience when I tried drop-shipping. I saw @Mimi Huwa Namwaga Ndanii talking about it here. That night I learned how to make a shopify store, made one, imported products from aliexpress using oberlo. The next day I made some ads on FB after reading about pixels and by evening I was live. Long story short, I made meagre sales before realizing that almost all Chinese manufacturers were on Ebay and Amazon too targeting the same customers at prices I couldn’t beat. Marketing costs were too high and I closed the store.
I should have taken some time and done more product research, but I don’t think the outcome would have been different. When Chinese manufacturers began listing items on Amazon and Aliexpress at the same price, they effectively cut out the middleman (dropshipper).
