      I have participated and tried to share how I lose money but no one is interested.
      Their gain.

      But seriously, anyone can make money but the most important thing is to have a beat on liquidations and very good deals.
      You make money buying it not selling.

        Well first and foremost you need to find a product that will sell. Someone oncensaid to sell stuff people want, not need. Everyone seems to be selling random chinese stuff already. How are you not making money?

          I've got too big an operation and a lot of loose ends.
          I've made big money in the past 20 years online, but the last two I've been tightening things up and transitioning a lot.

          >product that will sell
          Damn near everything will sell. You need to be buying it cheap as frick or you are going nowhere.

      the threads tend to turn into bragging which leads to begging, so I don't blame the jannies for killing them. Let's have a positive conversation here instead. Would anybody be comfortable sharing their favorite fulfillment processors?

    Suggest me a product(s) that requires least amount of investment to put in my web store?
    My college friend started a "flower" delivery business in India. Hindus put flowers in their Hindu god's idol at home, everyday. Her business is booming as more and more people are just subscribing to delivery of flower everyday.

        moron. India is biggest market of ecommerce right now. Indian government has mandated (kind of) use of online payment. Now even tea seller won't take cash.

          Developing market does not equal current largest market of buyers.

          I deal with Indian buying groups who source internationally for their jeet version of Amazon/Walmart

    I don’t use Shopify but I do have an e-commerce store selling woman’s used panties. I run it as if I’m a cute 20 year old girl that wears and sells the panties. I’m actually a 37 year old man, and the girl is AI generated. I do actually wear the panties for a day though so they smell used when customers get them. Rough in 50k last year and already on track to do better this year.

        used panties? set up a company and have immigrant workers mix egg yolk into panties and ship them out of sweden. You can make millions sending them to india.

    It's difficult.
    I don't recommend doing anything with ecommerce unless you're good at sales and have a shitload of money to run ads, or have a massive social media following.

    You'll lose otherwise. Most people think they can just make a website and people will come in and buy from them. It doesn't work this way. You could invent the cure for cancer and sell it on a website and not sell a single cure for a dollar forever. The Internet is a black hole and clawing your way out to be in front of eyes is extremely difficult.

    Start with Ebay/Amazon/Facebook, then attempt to divert these customers to your website.

      I would also recommend Etsy as well. All of these market places give your products without further advertising (you can add more exposure within those websites to have better ranking by paying more fees)

      Affiliate deals with influencers to shill your product/website

      Paid advertising through Facebook/Twitter/Google
      (This is difficult but also the most profitable if you learn) Much higher risk though the money can be lost and no sales gained

    I was making roughly $80 a month from my online store after I got it up and running. Shopify I think was charging $50 so net gain of $30 after I paid them. The business fell apart after I moved and didn't keep my attention on it but it's entirely possible to make money using a Shopify store. The majority of my business came from word of mouth and my background is in sales and management so that probably helped.

    No. Amazon FBA is absurd beyond anything. I can sell 200 items on Amazon and 1 of the same thing for half the price on e-Bay. A website would be even worse. You have to have the buy box though.

    There was organized shilling/demoralization tactics in legit e-commerce threads where people who have had success gave direct actionable steps on how to begin and tips in general. Of course they won't give their product up to prevent competition but that is fair.

    At first it was hard to believe there would be campaigns on here to deter and distract from fruitful discussion but once people in the threads collectively decided to no longer reply to them the threads got deleted. I was kind of shocked. I get it happens on /misc/ with certain things but there is an effort to keep people on IQfy from attempting to free themselves with their own business.

    They were called Entrepreneur General

    There was maybe 4 or 5 of them but two were started by people who solid cash flow coming in.

    I may have to make a thread about it. It wasn't just e-commerce but all types of discussion about online business and ideas.

    E-comm seemed to be the most relevant and discussed aspect.

    I'll have to check archives and get a thread going. I have some experience on the topic.

    E-comm and dropshipping is legit because its really more of a time cost than anything. Marketing aspect aside you can start an online business selling good with legit like $500. Test products, find one that shows proof of concept, then start funding the marketing side.

    There are also affiliate programs to give influencers a portion of profits so you don't have to pay them upfront albeit its less exposure and profitable than Adsense as an example.

    There are tons of routes to go depending on your risk tolerance, level of understanding, and budget.

    Also do you want to have a collection of products surrounding a niche or try a simple one product website etc. Lots of things to consider.

    g-shock is one of my favourite e-commerce stores. I love their watches tbh.

    For everyone that is saying e-commerce is over-saturated-- you actually have to sell a product that people want.
