Hi There, First, You have to know what is drop shipping and why your products are not sales What is Drop Shipping? In drop shipping, the merchant doesn’t maintain any stock or inventory with themselves. Whenever the buyer orders the product from any of these drop shipping merchants, the merchant purchases the product from the third party and ships it directly to the customer. The merchant doesn’t handle or sees the product. Instead, he/she becomes the point of contact between the customer and the seller. One of the main focuses of The E-commerce business is the order fulfillment process and that too on time. If you are not a manufacturer of the product then you need to find suppliers who can agree to list their products on your website. This process would help to lower down your initial investments that may include warehouses and humans for maintaining stocks and inventory. This method would fetch you lower profits as the product you are displaying on your website is not unique. Here choosing a proper supplier is important as it can pull more profits into your pocket.

I can almost hear the frustration in your post.
It looks like you posted about a month ago, but if you haven't turned things around yet, I would be happy help.
I run an ecommerce agency focused exclusively on Shopify (we're also Shopify Partners) and I've seen this too many times: a store that "was doing well until i bought it".
The two most common reasons are 1) the store wasn't actually doing as well as the buyer was lead to believe, or 2) the seller was 'goosing' results to make it seem more attractive or sell for a higher price, most often by not being forthright about how they achieved their results e.g. spending money on ads to drive sales - perhaps ad campaigns that had a negative ROI, but if you don't take into account the ad spend, it looks like general, profitable sales.
I'm not saying this is the case, but the reality is that simply changing ownership shouldn't drastically reduce sales and traffic.
I would be happy to do an 'audit & analysis', something we do whenever we begin working with someone.
We look at the store itself, how well it is - or isn't - setup and optimized, where traffic is coming from, what opportunities or avenues would be most worthwhile to pursue, and some basic competitive analysis to get a sense of what others in similar niches are doing and what you can or should expect.
I'm willing to do this for you gratis - no cost, no obligation.
If you're interested, let me know - you can email me directly at "mike @ analogymarketing . com" (no spaces). At the very least you'll get an honest and realistic assessment of where you're at, and what to do to can make your investment pay off.

I think you should consider selling on marketplaces. I understand you want to brand your product backed by its benefits. If people will see it and be even a bit interested they will find your resources too. By restricting your channels you are killing your business. Let CEDCOMMERCE help you with it.
