Another good way to create an Online Business!!!
Shopify is a platform where you create your online store. Here’s another good online business you can start! If you’re an artisan, easy to create your products and sell them on Shopify. And if your not an artisan you still can open a Shopify store with no inventory no product to prepare, no shipping organization, no just do it as dropshipping.
Shopify is a platform where you can create your e-commerce or affiliate links. Yes as an affiliate marketer you can promote Shopify. Like I say in my other posts of Wealthy affiliate; create your website and promoting products, you become an affiliate marketer. Well, that’s one good way to start your business online.
You can earn a staggering 200% per sale for every new customer you refer to them, which means that there is up to $2400 per new customer on offer.
Shopify is probably the biggest e-commerce solution provider on the internet. Their affiliate program pays commissions on all referred purchases of Shopify products and services. Although it is a standard affiliate program, Shopify refers to it as its “Partner Program.”
A Niche in the market is a specific area of marketing that has its own particular requirements, customers, and products. Small companies can do extremely well if they can fill a specific market niche. Ex.: shopify.com is a niche, kidsactivitiesforhome.com is a niche. Niche is a name you’ll write with your domain name(.com, .org, .net)
See Post What’s a Niche
When you register in Shopify, the platform offers you Oberlo. Oberlo is an app where you’ll click on and see all the products that you can sell on Your E-commerce. Oberlo has an inventory of different products for you to sell in your shop. Shopify handles everything from payments, to secure checkout and shipping. Don’t go on all crazy and add products that you would like to have. Take time to think about what you want to sell and what niche are you going to choose.
Oberlo is the app where you will find products to add to your Shopify store and ship them directly to your customers. No inventory, no risk. Let’s start at dropshipping!
Either you sell online, on social media, in-store, or out of the trunk of your car, Shopify has you covered. Start selling anywhere you are! You will need to find a name for your Store and start.
Add products in your store, choose a price ”Shopify suggest a price for you ” but you decide the prices you will sell to your customers. You just need to write the address of your customers and ship the product from Oberlo and it has done.
I suggest you, to follow customers for feedback and good services after purchase. This is the first and most the more important thing to do after a customer makes a purchase on your E-commerce, an email to thank them for the purchase, and if they have any questions you hear for them.
The same way I explain in my Etsy Shop Post
The way it works you need to register with the Shopify store on PrintFul and from PrintFul you’ll choose a product on this platform and personalize it with something you’ll write or draw embed a picture. They have a lot of different products to dropship all one color and your ad your personalized work.
How does it work?
It works from anywhere you are. Just need your Phone to login and start a free 14 days trial. Usually, it’s a 14-day trial but with the covid19 they offer a 90-day trial….(this 90 days trial will expire). This is a very good offer to start three (3) months free instead of 14 days. That’s about the time you’ll need to build your store and share some ads for your Shopify Store to your social media. This offer can change anytime. Du to the Covid19.
- 14 days trial
- Very responsive live chat, email, and voice (phone) customer service.
- A dedicated affiliate manager.
- High commission rates.
- Twice monthly payouts via PayPal (for balances over $25).
- Shopify has a very good brand reputation.
- Search Engine Optimized
- Sitemap automatically generated
- Offers gift cards
- Social media integrated
- Product reviews
- Email marketing (Mailchimp)
- Sell on Facebook
- Use and purchase your own domain name directly through Shopify
- You can work with a Shopify expert directly to fully customize your online store
- Full website builder, you can host your entire website on Shopify
- Full blogging platform
- Unpaid revenue under $25 will never be disbursed even if you close your account.
- Closing your affiliate account is a tedious and time-consuming procedure.
- Rather than niche products, it is only appealing to people who want to sell products online.
- No commissions paid for renewals.
- You have to wait two months after a user becomes a paying subscriber before receiving the commission for that sale.
- If you decide to leave Shopify all you will get is an exported CSV file of your product information, this makes moving over to another platform or your own self hosted store a hassle.
- It will take some time to learn how to use Shopify, so it won’t be set up in 5 minutes and at times the technical jargon can get a bit tricky.
- Pricing (possible pro and con explained under the costs below)
You will need to build yourself an audience. And a good way to do it, It’s to share ads on groups and on google ads. It’s two good ways to make yourself an audience.
Shopify has three different account types as well as standalone third-party products like themes and apps. Commissions are paid for sales on any of these products, including users who sign up for a 14-day free trial and then convert to a paid account. Shopify also has a wide range of blog posts, webinars, and video tutorials that can be linked to the standard commission paid on any sales that are generated.
Average Commission Rate
The average commission rate is $58 per the Shopify website. Shopify’s commissions are paid according to different metrics. For instance, if a referral signs up for the Shopify Plus enterprise plan (the highest tier), the payout is a flat $2,000.
Referrals who sign up for the standard plan earn a $598 commission. The payout for a Basic account is $58. Commissions are calculated as follows: you will earn two times the monthly rate but only two months after the user has been a paying customer.
Shopify also pays a 20% percent revenue share for referrals.
Note: The Partner Program (aka their affiliate program) also allows developers to create apps and pays a commission on all sales of your app.
Cookies expire after 30 days. If a referred visitor signs up for a free 14-day trial within that 30 days but then becomes a paying customer after the 30 days have expired, you will still earn the commission.
Who Is it for?
Shopify is probably the most popular e-commerce solutions provider out there, but because there are so many products and options, newcomers can easily get confused. If you believe your audience has products to sell and could benefit from Shopify’s products and are able to elucidate the benefits of signing up for Shopify, you can definitely earn some big money with their affiliate program.
The downside is that Shopify is only appealing to people who have physical or digital products to sell and have a need to set up a Shopify store, including site hosting, payment processing, and all the other services offered by Shopify.
This can significantly narrow the appeal for this affiliate program. But if you can distinguish yourself by educating people on how to use Shopify, how it can benefit their business, and/or make them money, you could potentially big money via the affiliate program. Add in the 2 x monthly fee commission rate, and landing just a few sales of their mid-tier and top-tier products can result in significant earnings.
The revenue sharing program requires you to be an active Shopify user and successfully have at least one referral to the Shopify development store, or one referral via an affiliate link, or have gotten an existing Shopify user to upgrade to Shopify Plus (the top-level tier) within the past 12 months.
All the best!
Heads up: My posts may contain affiliate links! If you buy something through one of those links, you won’t pay a penny more, but I will get a small commission, which helps keep the lights on. Thank you!
