This week we are having Paul J. Lipsky – He is a new york based expert drop shipper, attorney, instructor, and a YouTube influencer (his awesome channel has over 10k subscribers and counting!)
So Paul, How did you find yourself starting your drop shipping venture?
I always wanted to learn to make money online. I tried other methods in the past but nothing worked for me. Dropshipping seemed like a very simple way to get started!
Where & how did you started to learn the trade?
I took an online course about eBay dropshipping that was unfortunately very outdated. Through months of trial and error, I finally found a formula that works!
What are your favorite sources and why do you like to work with them?
I love dropshipping from HomeDepot.com. They have really great customer service and fast shipping.
One huge advantage is that anyone can get started with it. I tried classic dropshipping in the past and struggled with it because so many suppliers told me they were not taking on any new dropshippers. Drop shipping arbitrage also allows me to sell a huge variety of items!
First I make sure that my store always remains free of any defects. For my listings, I make sure that I have competitive prices and great titles.
It’s powerful because there is so much variety. There are so many different sources we can dropship from and so many different websites we can dropship onto!
If you had to start from the beginning, what would be the first thing you would do?
Find someone successful to teach me how to do it! I wasted so much time in the beginning trying to figure it all out on my own.
Dropshipping and youtube. Seriously dropshipping has consumed my life this past year which I am happy with because I love it so much. That’s why I share so much about it on my youtube channel.
When I am able to pull myself away from the computer though, I love spending time with my family, scuba diving and traveling.
Just get started!
