Why You Should NOT Start With Shopify Dropshipping

⚠️ Important: Facebook Marketplace Dropshipping is currently optimized for the U.S. residents only at the time of this video. That is because Facebook Marketplace will require a U.S. Bank Account and a Social Security Number (SSN) for identity verification purposes once you hit $599+ in sales for the calendar year and in order to set up the Shipping option on Facebook Marketplace.



It does seem to me that everyone and their uncle on YouTube is stuck on repeat and keeps advising beginner dropshippers to start with the hardest possible thing which is Shopify.

But why waste time building a website from scratch and spend your and hard-earned money on ad dollars on uncertain product testing, when instead, you can start with Facebook Marketplace. A platform that is vastly overlooked and is a must to be considered for both beginner and expert dropshipper alike.

Let me tell you why you should definitely consider starting with Facebook Marketplace if you are in the U.S. and are first starting out:

✅ Reason 1: There is no entry barrier and a monthly subscription. Anyone in the U.S. with a U.S. bank account and a U.S. Social Security Number (SSN) can start.

✅ Reason 2: Facebook Marketplace provides a lot of FREE organic traffic, no ad spend is needed, unlike on Shopify. You can often start getting orders within the first hour of launching a listing on Facebook Marketplace.

✅ Reason 3: Listing on Facebook Marketplace is free, takes minutes, and no advanced web design skills are needed, unlike on Shopify where you have to build a website from scratch in hopes that someone will buy from it (Hint: most likely they will not as you are not yet experienced.)

✅ Reason 4: Facebook Marketplace has the lowest seller fee of 5% on each sale. Moreover, Commerce Manager Shops have NO seller fees until June of 2022. Pure profits, baby!

✅ Reason 5: If you are a diehard Shopify fan, you are able to connect your Shopify store to Facebook's Commerce Manager and enjoy free organic traffic to your website and/or manage orders via Shopify UI.
