Shopify & Dropshipping Training

Participants will learn to create an ecommerce website using the Shopify platform. This ecommerce training will also introduce you to dropshipping and learn how to integrate Oberlo and AliExpress to your Shopify store.

What is Shopify

Shopify is an ecommerce platform that allows you to set up an online store to sell your products.


What is Dropshipping

Dropshipping is a business model where you run a store without holding any product inventory. With dropshipping, you don’t buy products up-front to keep an inventory while you wait for sales to come in. Instead, you only buy products when you make sales. You also don’t have to worry about product shipping, storing or packaging. When a store owner receives an order from a customer, they contact the supplier, who will then ship the products directly to the customer’s door.

What is AliExpress

AliExpress is an online retail service based in China, where customers can buy products directly from Chinese wholesalers and manufacturers. Participants will learn to source products from this platform to sell on Shopify.

What is Oberlo

Oberlo is a platform that gives you access to various suppliers on AliExpress. Participants will learn to use Oberlo to source products and add it to Shopify online store easily.
