It’s likely that you’ll be running your ecommerce business on your own, at least at the beginning, so your motivation will be the key to your store’s success.

Be critical with yourself, and think about why you actually want to start an ecommerce business.

Are you fed up with your current job and looking for something new? Do you want to be in control of your work schedule, and be able to work from home? Has the idea of running your own business always appealed to you? Whatever your reason is for wanting to start an ecommerce business, it’ll be the catalyst for your success.

    I shy away from making phone calls. I really prefer to use my email. Can I easily start an on-line drop shipping business without making calls several times a week, or more?

    Also, I am quit ignorant when it comes to getting around on the computer. I can send emails (attach and open files), create a very simple power point slide and use word to type up papers but when it comes to animation, or designing and building a website I am completely ignorant. Is it really possible for me to run an on-line drop shipping business without this knowledge?

    Hello Daniel,I am a seller from China,my name is Awen.You like me,I also shy to make phone calls,I also prefer to use email or whatsapp or skype.
    Igorant is not a problem,you just need to make sure what you want to sell,get the products information,upload to your shop,maybe do some ads,then wait for your orders.
    When you have orders,you can use Oberlo to make orders on Aliexpress,it’s not hard to try.If you have suppliers not on Aliexpress,you can download the order information then send to your suppliers,they will help you ship the order,the only things you need to do is pay for your suppliers,get the tracking nunbers,wirte on your orders.
    You can have a try,everything is easy except the starting.
