Dropshipping Phillippines setup

Dropshipping + Online Store + Tiktok Shop

One of the most promising and lucrative avenues within e-commerce is DROPSHIPPING, a business model that allows entrepreneurs to sell products without holding inventory.

In this blog post, we will explore how to leverage the power of dropshipping in the Philippines using Dropify and an e-commerce store, and how to effectively advertise your products on platforms like Facebook and TikTok.


What is Dropshipping?

Dropshipping eliminates the need for inventory management and upfront investments in stock of products. Instead, when a customer places an order on your online store, the product is shipped directly from the supplier to the customer.

This model significantly reduces overhead costs and logistical complexities, making it an attractive option for aspiring Pinoy entrepreneurs. This is not possible in the early times of online selling, now, there is a dropshipping company that ships the products CASH ON DELIVERY. Because the Filipinos are used to buy products in LAZADA or SHOPPEE, Cash on Delivery.

When I first try Dropshipping, I used to use Shopify + Aliexpress + Oberlo then dropship the items from China to US and Canada. Because they use creditcard payments. The major expense is the advertisement in US and Canada is so expensive and use US Dollar as payment.

To Dropship here in the Philippines, all we have to do is find the product that we want to dropship, mark-up the price ussually 60-150% profit margin. Find the customers on social media or blogging or in YouTube, if the customer orders, Dropify will process the order, pack the order, ship the order to the customer.

Dropify is a leading dropshipping platform that simplifies the process of finding and sourcing products to sell. It provides access to a vast catalog of products from trusted suppliers, along with features for order management, inventory tracking, and automated fulfillment. To get started with Dropify, sign up for an account and explore their catalog to find products that align with your niche and target audience.

In this discussion we will integrate Dropify with our online store and with Tiktok shop.

The good thing about Tiktok is that users don’t have to go out of Tiktok to buy. Customers can buy on our online store with Tiktok.

Here is my conversation with the Dropify representative.

Setting Up Your E-commerce Store

The intelligent thing to do is not to set-up Dropify with Tiktok shop. From the conversation above, we can setup a blank online shop, then Dropify representative will upload the products. After products are uploaded, now we can integrate our Tiktok shop with our online store. The advantage of this is we have the control over the online store, we can retarget using advertisements, we can see the orders on our online store and automatically forwarded to Dropify.

If we only have the Tiktok shop with Dropify, we have to manually forward the orders to Dropify, while if we have the online store we can manage the orders bulk and automatically ordered to Dropify.

Once you’ve chosen your products/category, it’s time to set up your e-commerce store.

Platforms like Shopify or WordPress + WooCommerce offer user-friendly interfaces for building and customizing your online store. Shopify cost $19 per month or P1,045 per month while WordPress website cost 109 pesos per month and we can make up to 100 websites.

I recommend using WordPress + WooCommerce instead of Shopify specially in the long run. Shopify is expensive and not that customizable. If you are into this in the long run and serious about earning money online you should have your own WordPress website.

Generating Traffic to your Online store

TikTok has emerged as a dominant force in social media marketing, especially among younger demographics. Leverage TikTok’s creative features to showcase your products in entertaining and engaging ways. Collaborate with influencers or create your own viral content or advertise using Tiktok Ads to increase brand awareness and drive sales on your e-commerce store.

Advertising on Facebook: Facebook is a powerful advertising platform that allows you to target specific demographics, interests, and behaviors. Create eye-catching ads that highlight your products’ unique selling points and use engaging copy to entice viewers to click through to your website. Utilize Facebook Pixel to track conversions and optimize your ad campaigns for maximum ROI.

Blogging – a blog is more than just a platform for personal expression—it’s a powerful tool for building an online presence, establishing authority, and driving traffic to your online store. You can review your own product and put a link to your online store so they can buy it.

YouTube has emerged as a powerhouse platform for businesses to connect with audiences, showcase products, and drive traffic to their online stores. Many people review the products in video then attach their affiliate link. We can earn more than affiliate link if we dropship the products.

Dropshipping presents a lucrative opportunity for entrepreneurs in the Philippines to build successful online businesses with minimal upfront investment. By leveraging platforms like Dropify and e-commerce stores, and effectively advertising on social media platforms like Facebook and TikTok, you can reach your target audience, drive sales, and achieve sustainable income.
