When I was creating my first dropshipping store, I kept asking myself, “When can I finally open my dropshipping store? When do I have enough products in my store to start selling and start making money?” I will give you a short answer below, then dive deep into what you need to know before you open your dropshipping store!
When you’re just beginning, I would suggest you import 5-20 products in your dropshipping store, but only really focus on 1-3 products. These products are going to be the first products that you’re going to start advertising with. The rest of the products are there to make your store look alive and real!
How many products are enough to open your dropshipping store?
As I said above, I suggest importing between 5-20 products in your dropshipping store when you’re just starting out, but you don’t have to follow this number.
It all depends on what kind of dropshipping store you’re building. Or maybe you have already built it!
Are you building a niche store or a general store?
