Where Can I Get Products to Sell on Shopify?

There are various places you can get products to sell on Shopify. You can purchase products from manufacturers, wholesalers, dropshippers, and online marketplaces such as eBay, Amazon, and Etsy.

You can also create your own products and add them to your store. Additionally, you can use Shopify dropshipping apps to import products.

It’s worthwhile pointing out that because you can, doesn't mean you should, right? If you opt to go down the dropshipping route to add products to Shopify, you’ll more than likely not bother with testing products. This is a big “No No”!

Don’t underestimate what it takes to build a profitable store. You can have an amazing Shopify theme, and killer marketing skills, but if there is no demand and the product is low in quality, your store will fail.

An alternative solution would be to stop looking for a product to sell, but rather try and solve a problem, or better still, sell something you are passionate about.

Before adding products think about:

  • Is this a quality product
  • Have I tested this product
  • Is it in demand
  • Can I create content around this product

The Takeaway

Never just assume you can sell a product without any prior knowledge of the product. It’s important to understand that most eCommerce owners understand their product in and out. Do your research, and plenty of it, but also test, test, and more testing.

Go above and beyond to what most of store owners do. Don’t be another pop-up store that fails within the first 6 months.
