New category mapping feature added to our BigCommerce Dropship plan

Today we added a new feature to our BigCommerce dropship App to help store owners MAP their own categories to products offered by their chosen dropship suppliers.

As you know each supplier will provide their own category names which most often don’t match the category names that you have decided to use in your store. With this new category mapping feature, you will be able to rename the supplier’s categories to match yours so when items from your list are pushed to your BigCommerce store, your own categories will be used instead of the ones provided by each drop shipper.

To access this new category mapping feature, just login to your wholesale2b.com account and click on the top green button BigCommerce Plan and then click on the link “category mapping” located at the top of your list.

dropship category mapping for BigCommerce

On the next page you will find the list of supplier category names with a box next to each category titled “BigCommerce Categories”. In this box you can enter your own category name to replace the supplier category.

The category path will be separated by the sign “>”. For example if the supplier category name is “frgx men>Gucci” then this means that the parent category is “frgx men” and the sub-category is “Gucci”. Now if your store category on BigCommerce is name “Perfumes” instead, then simply enter “Perfumes>Cuggi” in the box and click SAVE.

The next time your list is imported to your store, the new category will be used and all related items will be moved under your store category.

3 Reasons Drop Shippers Prefer Wholesale2B

In order to run a profitable and successful drop shipping website, you must partner with reliable drop ship partners. In the early days of dropshipping, this meant that sellers had to build (or pay handsomely for) connections and relationships with vendors, suppliers, and wholesalers. While this method worked, it limited sellers to a smaller range of products—and the time consuming process of securing and maintaining partnerships. This often led to at least a few bad partnerships with suppliers who didn’t keep their inventories and pricing up to date, were slow to ship, or simply didn’t prioritize their smaller sellers. Wholesale2B built our system for success around eradicating these roadblocks, which is why both tenured and new drop shippers continue to sing our praises.

Reason #1 We Identify Reputable Wholesalers For You

The amount of time it takes to identify quality and reliable vendors often comes as a surprise to most new ecommerce owners. Then comes the stress and worry if your small or single item shipments will really be of priority. It’s a hit and miss way of conducting business, that can lead to unhappy customers. However, at Wholesale2B, we source, test, and approve vendors before we add them to the mix—meaning that you can post your inventory with confidence.

Reason #2 Over 1.5 Million Products To Choose From

Going it alone, you may be able to successfully identify and build a working relationship with a handful of wholesalers—who may have a few hundred products you can sell. However, we have built partnerships with a long list of wholesalers allowing you direct access to no less than 1.5 million products—across hundreds of product niches. This includes seasonal products, trending products, and those hard to find products your shoppers are searching for.

Reason #3 Easy-Breezy Business Model For Drop Shippers

Wholesale2B does more than just partner with wholesalers, but provides drop shippers with an easy-breezy business model. Our platform and packages ensure that you have direct access to everything you need to launch your new business, or simplify your current ecommerce business. From building a new website, pushing products directly to feeds and sales platforms, one-click order processing—and same day business startup, with no lengthy payments or approval.
These are just a few of the reasons that drop shippers love Wholesale2B! Whether you are looking to sell on eBay, Amazon, dropship feeds, your own dropship website—or all of the above—we make dropshipping easy!

A good dropship affiliate program that pays good commissions

Affiliate programs are programs that will pay you a fee each time you refer someone to a business. This is a sort of a compensation program that will compensate you for sending new people to a company’s website and become a paying member.

There are 2 types of affiliate programs

One-time commission program
This type of affiliate program will pay you commissions only 1 time per new signups. For example, if a company offers a 30% commission and the buyer you referred to a site pays the company $100, then you will earn a $30 commission.

Recurring commission program
This type of affiliate program will pay you a commission each month for as long as the people you refer remain an active paying member with the company. Typically, those commissions are offered on membership based website, however please note that some companies still give a one-time commission even on membership bases sales.

Recurring commissions are always what you should be looking out for. Basically as an affiliate you should be trying to grow your monthly payouts as much as possible, but if you are getting only 1 payout for each member you refer then the workload required to increase your monthly payment will be great. On the other hand, if you work with recurring monthly commission payments, then by referring 100 people means that you will keep getting monthly commission payments on these 100 referrals for as long as they remain active.

For example, if you have 100 referrals that got a plan for $100, and your commission is set to 30%, then your commission every month will be $3,000. After one year your total earned commission payments will be $36,000. Again this is based on referring only 100 people.

Imagine how much money you can make if you refer 100 new signups every month!

At wholesale2b.com, we pay recurring monthly commissions for as long as the people you refer to remain active members.

Our commissions payout is a flat 30% commissions on the monthly fee. We have several monthly plans that a member can choose from their account so you have a high likelihood to get a high commission payout since there is potential for a member to add more plans to their account.

For example, if you refer someone to wholesale2b.com and that person activates our monthly website plan, then you will earn a 30% commission each month for as long as the member keeps the website plan active. Now if this same person later on decides to also start selling on eBay and Amazon, then those plans will also trigger another monthly commissions to you.

As you can see, by referring only a few people you can increase your monthly payout exceptionally over time.

All commissions are paid using Paypal so all you need is a normal Paypal account to receive your monthly payouts.

How much profit can i really make drop shipping?

This is a common question that I get almost every day. Drop shipping has been around for years and thousands of people are still making good profit from drop shipping even to this day.

The market is like a living organism. It changes and adapts all the time. There is no such thing as making money with a “set and forget” approach. If you want to be successful you must constantly review the trends and look for new products in demand.

I listed one example below, which is an item that i picked randomly from our inventory using some of the profit margin search tools that we offer to our private members.

SELL HIGH – PAY LOW – MAKE GOOD PROFITS

Example: Back to The 50′s Executive Antique Trumpet Horn Turntable/Phonograph with encode function

SKU: 12129-RB
Average seling price: $178.81
Your total cost: $120.74    FREE SHIPPING!

AUTOMATE YOUR SHOPIFY ORDER FULFILLMENT USING DROPSHIP SUPPLIERS

ad-728X90

If you aspire to be a successful at selling products from an online store, then Shopify is certainly a great choice for your shopping cart. They offer great templates and there are many cool Apps that you can download to your store to customise it in many ways.

Part of running your online business will involve fulfilling your orders. Whether you decide to work with dropship suppliers or not, the process of fulfilling your orders will involve manual generic steps which are outline below:

Confirm that you received the payment from your buyer

Find out which supplier the item comes from. As you know you can have products from various suppliers on your site.

Create a new order with the proper supplier by manually inputting the order details with your supplier account. This involves typing the item number, the quantity, the billing address and the shipping address and making your wholesale payment to the supplier.

Then wait until the supplier ships the items and manually input the tracking code into your order and send it to your buyer.

As you can see, if you are getting many orders every day, the process can become tedious and time consuming.

Thankfully there is a solution to this problem. With wholesale2b Shopify App, the order fulfilment can be almost fully automated.

Just one click, and your orders will be sent the proper supplier for you.

Can I run a dropship business from outside the USA?

The quick answer is YES. You don’t need to be physically located in the USA to run a dropship business and be successful.

At wholesale2b.com we get many requests from people from countries like Canada, Thailand, Greece, Australia and even Russia and more, wanting to start drop shipping in the USA but don’t know to get started.

The great news is that anyone can start an online business with drop shipping as long as you partner with the right people.

At wholesale2b, we have the team and the experience to help you run a successful drop shipping business from any country.

There are a few requirements needed to be able to sell in the USA, so if you are located outside the USA you should keep reading before getting started.

If you are selling on eBay, you must have a valid eBay account with no restrictions on selling to the USA. Normally eBay will apply limits on accounts that are not in the USA that may prevent you from creating auctions in the USA so you should contact eBay and request that they remove any restrictions from your eBay account. The main restrictions that should be removed are those that will prevent you from creating auctions in eBay USA and restrictions that will prevent you from using a third party listing tool. Please contact eBay and and request that such restrictions be removed from your account if they are applied.

If you are selling on Amazon, then you do need to have a Professional Amazon Seller account. This is required by our Amazon plan. The Amazon account needs to support the USA and Canadian marketplaces since you can choose one or the other as your main marketplace.

If you are selling products from your own e-commerce website, then you just need to make sure that you have a valid Paypal account since this is the easiest way to capture payments online and there is no monthly fees. I do recommend that you get your Paypal account VERIFIED and that you link it to your bank account and add a credit card. This will help you avoid having funds frozen in your account.

With wholesale2b.com you can start selling in the USA market very quickly as long as you have an active plan. I encourage you to signup for a free account at wholesale2b.com and review the products from our integrated dropship suppliers.
