Dropshipping is already a low-cost online business model. However, depending on the eCommerce software that you use, fees can add up quickly.
Before you know it, you could be spending $200 and up per month to maintain your dropshipping business. That is quite a hefty expense for new dropshippers.
Fortunately, there is an inexpensive way to get started. I’ll share details on the cheapest way to start dropshipping that you can start today.
Why I Stopped Using Shopify and Oberlo
When I became interested in dropshipping, I turned to the Shopify platform and the Oberlo app as they were both quite popular options.
However, I knew that if I could find a WordPress alternative, I could save on monthly fees and still have all of the same features.
Both Shopify and Oberlo have monthly fees. The basic fee for Shopify is $29 per month. Oberlo has a free option but it is limited. Oberlo’s basic plan is $29.90 per month.
