Hi @Chill20

It's great that you're interested in starting an online business, and we absolutely want you to be successful too!

The first step is in deciding what it is you want to sell and why. If you don't already have a product, then you might want to consider dropshipping.

Dropshipping is a retail fulfillment method in which you pick the products you want to sell from suppliers who are available through a dedicated app that is integrated with your Shopify store (here is a full list of available dropshipping apps).

Those suppliers store the products for you, and whenever a customer places an order the app then informs the supplier(s) who ship the order directly to the customer. You can take a look at our ultimate guide to dropshipping. It will walk you through everything you need to know about starting off, finding suppliers, and maintaining your business.

When you're picking the products you want to sell, think about why you want to sell them. Do they mean something to you? Are you looking to share your excitement about something with others? Are you passionate about your products?

Have a look at our guide to How To Find a Product To Sell Online With 12 Strategies for ideas, as well as How To Source Products To Sell Online (2022).

Obviously, you need a store to sell your products. So you will need to sign up for a free 14-day trial, which is great because you can explore the platform to make sure it suits your needs. And if it does, then you can follow our step-by-step guide on how to set up your store for success.

I'm excited for you! If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to let me know. I'm happy to help.

Hello @Chill20 ,


Starting a online business is very easy but earning a money is hard. You can start business with low budget is the best way...

I suggest Dropshipping business, Its a low budget.

Beginning a successful business has never been free, that is as yet the case. The greatest advantage of outsourcing is that you don't have to front the expenses for the items you're selling.

There will be some startup costs, however you won't have to contribute thousands to begin your online business.
-> Select a supplier.
-> Choose your required products.
-> Design website to sell products.

Before you start doing anything, we suggest reading and researching this business model.

  1. First, choose the type of products you want to sell.

  3. Decide on a name for your online store.
  4. You also need to incorporate your company.
  5. Now you can also start to build your ecommerce store.
  6. At this point, is highly important that you find a dropshipping supplier from whom to source your products.

Hope this helped and happy dropshipping. 🙂
