How To Add Dropship Products To Shopify
Last modified: March 19, 2023
When you start a dropshipping business on Shopify, you have to add products to your store. There are various ways of doing this. Here’s a quick run down of all the options for you to create dropshipping products on your Shopify Store with their pros and cons.
1. Manually Enter Them Into Your Website
The first option is to manually enter the products into your store. This is a great option if you have a dropshipping store that has a partner that doesn’t have a Shopify integration and there are few products to upload. It allows (forces) you to customize all the products from scratch so there are no Google penalties and at the same time, can help you make the products look much more unique on your store.
The problem with manually entering the products into the store is that it takes a long time. This could be better spent. It also has a higher chance of mistakes being made and you have to find a manual way for your products to be ordered when a customer makes an order with you.
2. Bulk Uploading Products From CSV file
Another option to manually add products to your store is to use a csv file to upload products in bulk to your store. You can use an app, like Bulk Product Editor & Sync, which can allow you to import, export and bulk edit products. It is a great option that allows you to save time. Your dropshipper should also be able to provide you with a csv file with all the products.
If they don’t then you will need to create this yourself. The problem with this option is that making changes either needs to be done one at a time on the csv file or through the Shopify dashboard. But it is a much more effective, accurate and time efficient way of adding products to your website.
3. Using An App
If you want to dropship products from stores like AliExpress, then you can forgo the previous options and use apps like Oberlo to automatically import products to your store. The advantage of this option is that it allows you to add images, products, prices and more to your store with a click of a few buttons. In addition, you can make changes to the products either through the Oberlo interface or when the products have been uploaded to your store.
This method can also provide you with an automatic way to create orders with your dropshipping partners, allowing you to make more of your time. This time could be spent better on your website, marketing or fulfilling customer service responsibilities.
