startTime durationTime text
00:00:00 00:00:04 so today i'm going to teach you how to
00:00:01 00:00:06 drop ship on etsy okay and etsy is a
00:00:04 00:00:08 great opportunity for drop shippers both
00:00:06 00:00:10 if you're currently obviously
00:00:08 00:00:11 banned on facebook marketplace or if
00:00:10 00:00:12 you're just looking for another place to
00:00:11 00:00:14 diversify
00:00:12 00:00:15 and you know dropship on another
00:00:14 00:00:16 platform right so it's a great
00:00:15 00:00:18 opportunity because
00:00:16 00:00:20 there are some challenges presented with
00:00:18 00:00:22 drop shipping on etsy that you don't see
00:00:20 00:00:24 on other platforms specifically
00:00:22 00:00:26 but that's a good thing in a lot of ways
00:00:24 00:00:28 because it means that the sales velocity
00:00:26 00:00:30 on etsy is relatively high
00:00:28 00:00:32 but the competition and the other people
00:00:30 00:00:33 drop shipping on the platform that you
00:00:32 00:00:35 will be competing against
00:00:33 00:00:37 is not really there to meet the sales
00:00:35 00:00:39 velocity right
00:00:37 00:00:42 so for example like but on amazon okay
00:00:39 00:00:43 on amazon or ebay for example right like
00:00:42 00:00:45 you have a great number of sales
00:00:43 00:00:46 velocity and sales potential there
00:00:45 00:00:48 don't get me wrong it's been phenomenal
00:00:46 00:00:50 uh and i plan on creating an amazon
00:00:48 00:00:53 dropshipping tutorial relatively soon
00:00:50 00:00:54 but with that with that that sales
00:00:53 00:00:55 velocity comes a lot of competition with
00:00:54 00:00:57 it right well
00:00:55 00:00:59 on etsy there's a lot of sales velocity
00:00:57 00:01:01 not necessarily obviously like to match
00:00:59 00:01:03 like a facebook marketplace or an ebay
00:01:01 00:01:04 or an amazon or anything like that but
00:01:03 00:01:05 there is a good number of sales there
00:01:04 00:01:06 but
00:01:05 00:01:08 the competition for drop shippers and
00:01:06 00:01:09 the types of products that you're going
00:01:08 00:01:11 to be drop shipping
00:01:09 00:01:12 is not really there okay so we're going
00:01:11 00:01:14 to tok about some of those challenges
00:01:12 00:01:16 here when i show you the tutorial here
00:01:14 00:01:18 and we jump into my computer here
00:01:16 00:01:20 in a second but really the the only
00:01:18 00:01:21 there's only two extensions that i use
00:01:20 00:01:23 to drop ship using
00:01:21 00:01:24 etsy and first and foremost is going to
00:01:23 00:01:27 be the same one that i've covered
00:01:24 00:01:28 in the poshmark drop shipping tutorial
00:01:27 00:01:29 the same one i've covered in the offer
00:01:28 00:01:30 up dropshipping
00:01:29 00:01:32 sorry that's not the offer up shop
00:01:30 00:01:33 shipping tutorial the facebook
00:01:32 00:01:35 marketplace drop shipping tutorial and
00:01:33 00:01:37 that is z drop okay if you guys want z
00:01:35 00:01:38 drop it'll be linked in the description
00:01:37 00:01:40 it is an affiliate link but you can save
00:01:38 00:01:42 i think a dollar off every single month
00:01:40 00:01:42 going forward if you plan on stiking
00:01:42 00:01:44 with it which
00:01:42 00:01:46 i still use it it's phenomenal i have
00:01:44 00:01:48 yet to see a better option out there
00:01:46 00:01:50 not only does it morph your listings
00:01:48 00:01:50 over like that which you'll see here in
00:01:50 00:01:52 a second
00:01:50 00:01:54 but it also allows you to copy paste
00:01:52 00:01:56 addresses which in and of itself
00:01:54 00:01:58 is way way i mean they're both obviously
00:01:56 00:01:59 worth a hundred bucks a month in my
00:01:58 00:02:00 opinion
00:01:59 00:02:02 but because they come together and then
00:02:00 00:02:03 you you're literally paying nine dollars
00:02:02 00:02:05 a month for the software
00:02:03 00:02:07 it's a no-brainer in my opinion check it
00:02:05 00:02:09 out the second one is list perfectly
00:02:07 00:02:11 which basically lets you cross post from
00:02:09 00:02:12 other marketplaces or from etsy to other
00:02:11 00:02:15 marketplaces right
00:02:12 00:02:17 so i think i think list perfectly lets
00:02:15 00:02:18 you cross post to like 12 to 15
00:02:17 00:02:20 different marketplaces
00:02:18 00:02:22 i only really use about like eight to
00:02:20 00:02:24 ten of them i want to say
00:02:22 00:02:25 but real real like if you have for
00:02:24 00:02:27 example like already
00:02:25 00:02:28 a bunch of listings on facebook
00:02:27 00:02:30 marketplace or already a bunch of
00:02:28 00:02:32 listings on like ebay for example
00:02:30 00:02:33 well you don't really need to go find or
00:02:32 00:02:34 source more you can go to your
00:02:33 00:02:36 best-selling listings
00:02:34 00:02:39 use lists perfectly and cross post them
00:02:36 00:02:40 again to etsy or to wherever else okay
00:02:39 00:02:41 so we're going to cover all that here
00:02:40 00:02:43 and more but i did want to touch on the
00:02:41 00:02:44 fact that while there are challenges
00:02:43 00:02:45 with etsy
00:02:44 00:02:47 and it's definitely not the platform i'd
00:02:45 00:02:49 recommend like you should focus
00:02:47 00:02:50 all your attention on it's definitely a
00:02:49 00:02:52 great place to diversify if you're
00:02:50 00:02:53 looking for other marketplaces to sell
00:02:52 00:02:55 and drop ship on
00:02:53 00:02:57 and because the competition on there is
00:02:55 00:02:58 relatively low
00:02:57 00:03:00 because it's not as easy to like just
00:02:58 00:03:02 post over to facebook marketplace
00:03:00 00:03:04 it's still pretty easy don't get me
00:03:02 00:03:05 wrong but because there are a
00:03:04 00:03:07 little bit of hurdles like you wouldn't
00:03:05 00:03:09 see on an ebay or a facebook marketplace
00:03:07 00:03:11 the competition there is next to
00:03:09 00:03:12 non-existent for drop shippers okay so
00:03:11 00:03:13 with that being said let's hop into my
00:03:12 00:03:15 computer
00:03:13 00:03:16 and i'll show you how to drop ship on
00:03:15 00:03:18 etsy so
00:03:16 00:03:20 etsy is another marketplace that you can
00:03:18 00:03:20 drop ship with and one of the benefits
00:03:20 00:03:23 of
00:03:20 00:03:25 etsy is it works with z drop obviously
00:03:23 00:03:27 so a lot of amazon listings
00:03:25 00:03:29 a lot of walmart listings you can
00:03:27 00:03:31 obviously copy to etsy okay
00:03:29 00:03:32 so we're gonna cover all the nuances of
00:03:31 00:03:34 it here in a second another benefit of
00:03:32 00:03:36 it is when you're using again the
00:03:34 00:03:37 software like list perfectly which is a
00:03:36 00:03:39 cross posting software
00:03:37 00:03:41 it also cross posts to etsy right so you
00:03:39 00:03:43 can post things to etsy and then also
00:03:41 00:03:45 post them to facebook to poshmark
00:03:43 00:03:46 to uh other ones like depop or you know
00:03:45 00:03:48 whatever it is that you want to do in
00:03:46 00:03:50 recaro right or vice versa like if you
00:03:48 00:03:51 have mercari listings that you think
00:03:50 00:03:53 work well on etsy
00:03:51 00:03:55 you can cross-post in the etsy facebook
00:03:53 00:03:56 marketplace etsy you get the picture
00:03:55 00:03:58 right so it works with both softwares
00:03:56 00:03:59 that's why it's a marketplace that i
00:03:58 00:04:01 recommend
00:03:59 00:04:03 full disclosure i don't really do this a
00:04:01 00:04:05 lot yet i have tested some listings on
00:04:03 00:04:06 here and some of them have sold right
00:04:05 00:04:08 there's a couple issues with etsy first
00:04:06 00:04:09 and foremost you can only okay so i want
00:04:08 00:04:13 to hit this home
00:04:09 00:04:15 you can only list vintage or handmade
00:04:13 00:04:17 products on etsy okay
00:04:15 00:04:19 so vintage is like older older clothes
00:04:17 00:04:19 and vintage like goods and stuff like
00:04:19 00:04:21 that
00:04:19 00:04:22 handmade is anything that's made by hand
00:04:21 00:04:23 okay that's what they want on their
00:04:22 00:04:25 marketplace so something like this you
00:04:23 00:04:26 couldn't drop ship onto etsy right
00:04:25 00:04:28 something like you know you would
00:04:26 00:04:29 normally drop ship on facebook that's
00:04:28 00:04:31 like an amazon product you probably
00:04:29 00:04:33 can't drop ship onto etsy okay
00:04:31 00:04:34 so that's the first thing is you need to
00:04:33 00:04:36 find handmade or vintage goods to be
00:04:34 00:04:38 able to drop shipping
00:04:36 00:04:40 on etsy okay the second thing is they
00:04:38 00:04:42 charge you 20 cents a listing to even
00:04:40 00:04:43 list something okay so anybody that's
00:04:42 00:04:45 you know
00:04:43 00:04:46 not well versed in drop shipping yet i
00:04:45 00:04:48 wouldn't recommend that you start here
00:04:46 00:04:48 but eventually once you get good at it
00:04:48 00:04:50 and you kind of
00:04:48 00:04:52 not max out on other platforms but you
00:04:50 00:04:54 start to get success on other platforms
00:04:52 00:04:55 that's when i recommend that you branch
00:04:54 00:04:57 out to etsy because it's another
00:04:55 00:04:59 marketplace with high sales velocity
00:04:57 00:05:00 where there aren't really a lot of drop
00:04:59 00:05:02 shippers because of the two things that
00:05:00 00:05:03 i just outlined you can only do vintage
00:05:02 00:05:05 or handmade
00:05:03 00:05:07 and they charge you 20 cents a listing
00:05:05 00:05:08 at that point it might be smart to
00:05:07 00:05:09 branch out to etsy but i will cover it
00:05:08 00:05:11 in this lecture in case you want to
00:05:09 00:05:13 start it it's something i plan to get on
00:05:11 00:05:14 into heavily in the future because i
00:05:13 00:05:16 think there's a lot of promise i think
00:05:14 00:05:18 that a lot of dropshippers avoid it for
00:05:16 00:05:20 the specific reasons i just outlined
00:05:18 00:05:22 and so i think there's there's a lot of
00:05:20 00:05:23 drop shipping opportunity there
00:05:22 00:05:25 if you can do it correctly because the
00:05:23 00:05:26 competition isn't there but the sales
00:05:25 00:05:28 velocity
00:05:26 00:05:30 is right a lot of potential sales uh on
00:05:28 00:05:30 that platform potentially for drop
00:05:30 00:05:32 shippers
00:05:30 00:05:34 i think i just said potentially like 100
00:05:32 00:05:36 times uh and a lot of obviously
00:05:34 00:05:39 i was trying to avoid potential but a
00:05:36 00:05:41 lot of potential profit for you as well
00:05:39 00:05:42 so there's a couple ways you could
00:05:41 00:05:43 approach this a couple ways that i have
00:05:42 00:05:44 approached this but again i don't really
00:05:43 00:05:46 do this that much
00:05:44 00:05:47 yet i just want to outline it for you
00:05:46 00:05:47 and it's something i plan to do in the
00:05:47 00:05:49 future
00:05:47 00:05:51 so if you go to like amazon right or
00:05:49 00:05:53 let's just go to like amazon
00:05:51 00:05:55 sellers and i don't recommend that you
00:05:53 00:05:56 do this i know a lot of tutorials i show
00:05:55 00:05:58 like bestsellers are going into walmart
00:05:56 00:06:00 again i also recommend that you
00:05:58 00:06:02 differentiate your suppliers go to other
00:06:00 00:06:04 suppliers that aren't amazon walmart
00:06:02 00:06:06 home depot etc because everybody starts
00:06:04 00:06:07 there and everybody uses the best
00:06:06 00:06:09 sellers okay
00:06:07 00:06:10 but just to kind of show you if you came
00:06:09 00:06:12 down to here there's a handmade section
00:06:10 00:06:14 so like handmade products
00:06:12 00:06:15 a lot of these you can list on etsy
00:06:14 00:06:17 because they're all handmade okay
00:06:15 00:06:19 the issue with some of these listings
00:06:17 00:06:21 though is it's got the handling time
00:06:19 00:06:23 because they're handmade
00:06:21 00:06:24 it might be an issue okay so if they're
00:06:23 00:06:26 the
00:06:24 00:06:27 handling time is like five days or like
00:06:26 00:06:28 three days or seven days
00:06:27 00:06:30 it's gonna be an issue because you're
00:06:28 00:06:32 gonna struggle to get the tracking
00:06:30 00:06:34 number to give to your customer okay
00:06:32 00:06:35 so make sure that when you're actually
00:06:34 00:06:37 looking at these things it's not
00:06:35 00:06:39 something that's like personalized with
00:06:37 00:06:40 like a name you want to avoid those
00:06:39 00:06:41 types of listings
00:06:40 00:06:42 but like something like this potentially
00:06:41 00:06:44 where it's like a baby well that's a
00:06:42 00:06:46 baby name too so let's avoid that
00:06:44 00:06:48 so let's find one that you can actually
00:06:46 00:06:50 drop ship onto etsy that's not too
00:06:48 00:06:52 customizable that obviously you could
00:06:50 00:06:54 just list and then potentially fulfill
00:06:52 00:06:56 again you want to avoid customizable you
00:06:54 00:06:57 want to avoid uh you know things with
00:06:56 00:06:58 long handling times and stuff like that
00:06:57 00:07:00 but this is something that you could
00:06:58 00:07:02 again just list the etsy as handmade
00:07:00 00:07:03 the only issue is when you list the etsy
00:07:02 00:07:05 you want to do the same thing you just
00:07:03 00:07:06 want to copy it to etsy using z drop or
00:07:05 00:07:07 you can cross post it from somewhere
00:07:06 00:07:10 else
00:07:07 00:07:11 using list perfectly right um and so you
00:07:10 00:07:13 just want to listen to etsy there's a
00:07:11 00:07:14 bunch of other little categories that
00:07:13 00:07:15 you're going to need to fill in
00:07:14 00:07:16 etsy and you'll get the hang of it very
00:07:15 00:07:17 very easily just like you would anything
00:07:16 00:07:18 else
00:07:17 00:07:20 but that's one way that you could
00:07:18 00:07:22 approach it listing like handmade or
00:07:20 00:07:24 vintage from actual amazon bestsellers
00:07:22 00:07:25 handmade or just searching like handmade
00:07:24 00:07:27 on amazon right
00:07:25 00:07:29 and seeing what pops up and list from
00:07:27 00:07:30 there that's one way to approach it but
00:07:29 00:07:31 again you can only list handmade in
00:07:30 00:07:34 vintage and
00:07:31 00:07:36 you do get charged 20 cents per listing
00:07:34 00:07:37 so you can't really play the volume game
00:07:36 00:07:38 too much where you're listing like
00:07:37 00:07:40 hundreds and thousands of listings
00:07:38 00:07:41 because you're going to be paying 20
00:07:40 00:07:42 cents for every listing that you
00:07:41 00:07:43 obviously list
00:07:42 00:07:45 right so you want to kind of go after
00:07:43 00:07:46 best sellers you want to kind of go
00:07:45 00:07:48 after things that are proven on other
00:07:46 00:07:50 platforms that you can potentially list
00:07:48 00:07:52 so you can even use like facebook or
00:07:50 00:07:53 makari or other things like that to test
00:07:52 00:07:55 products
00:07:53 00:07:57 and then once you have a winner that's
00:07:55 00:07:59 handmade or vintage then list it to etsy
00:07:57 00:08:01 and also sell it there right
00:07:59 00:08:02 another thing that you can do is you can
00:08:01 00:08:04 go to like obscure suppliers i know a
00:08:02 00:08:06 lot of people dropship on etsy like this
00:08:04 00:08:08 so you can just search for like vintage
00:08:06 00:08:10 products or like vintage
00:08:08 00:08:12 um vintage hoodies right or like
00:08:10 00:08:13 something like that right

00:08:25 00:08:28 and then list from that specific
00:08:26 00:08:29 supplier on the etsy the issue with that
00:08:28 00:08:30 though
00:08:29 00:08:32 is you won't be able to use um you know
00:08:30 00:08:34 z drop because it won't integrate with
00:08:32 00:08:35 that website but you can use something
00:08:34 00:08:36 like an e-commerce image downloader
00:08:35 00:08:39 which
00:08:36 00:08:40 i don't have up right now but if you use
00:08:39 00:08:41 e-commerce image downloader what it's
00:08:40 00:08:43 going to do
00:08:41 00:08:45 is on a lot of different things it
00:08:43 00:08:46 should just download the pictures on the
00:08:45 00:08:48 actual thing right here
00:08:46 00:08:50 on the actual page and so you'll see
00:08:48 00:08:52 this pop up right here with the inc
00:08:50 00:08:53 ecommerce image downloader you hit
00:08:52 00:08:55 download all directly
00:08:53 00:08:57 and it just should just download all the
00:08:55 00:08:58 images on right here
00:08:57 00:09:00 so it downloaded all three of those
00:08:58 00:09:02 images to my to my uh downloads and
00:09:00 00:09:03 you'll see them pop up right there and
00:09:02 00:09:05 then i can just list them a lot easier
00:09:03 00:09:07 all i have to do is then copy and paste
00:09:05 00:09:09 the description in the title
00:09:07 00:09:11 and paste it into etsy it's very very
00:09:09 00:09:13 easy okay if e-commerce image downloader
00:09:11 00:09:15 is something you can't find because
00:09:13 00:09:16 they've changed their name twice now um
00:09:15 00:09:18 if they might change their name again
00:09:16 00:09:19 uh or you know maybe it's not working
00:09:18 00:09:20 with the integrated site that you're
00:09:19 00:09:22 working
00:09:20 00:09:24 with you can download there's a number
00:09:22 00:09:26 of uh e-commerce plugins that you know
00:09:24 00:09:26 are google chrome related just suit the
00:09:26 00:09:28 search
00:09:26 00:09:29 the chrome store i can't tok today
00:09:28 00:09:31 apparently search
00:09:29 00:09:33 the chrome store and you will be able to
00:09:31 00:09:34 find one that just downloads the
00:09:33 00:09:36 pictures on the actual
00:09:34 00:09:38 you know whatever page okay so that's
00:09:36 00:09:39 how you approach etsy again i'm not too
00:09:38 00:09:41 seasoned in this but i wanted to cover
00:09:39 00:09:42 it for you because i think it's a
00:09:41 00:09:43 promising up and coming drop shipping
00:09:42 00:09:45 platform
00:09:43 00:09:46 where you can take advantage of make
00:09:45 00:09:48 more money make more profit
00:09:46 00:09:50 that really nobody's doing right now
00:09:48 00:09:51 because of the issues that i outlined so
00:09:50 00:09:52 it's something i see on the horizon for
00:09:51 00:09:54 me
00:09:52 00:09:55 maybe you tackle it maybe you you know
00:09:54 00:09:57 maybe you hop in before there's a lot of
00:09:55 00:09:59 competition there and you really kind of
00:09:57 00:10:00 master it yourself there's a it's it's
00:09:59 00:10:01 not really high risk because they're
00:10:00 00:10:02 really
00:10:01 00:10:04 you know 20 cents listing isn't high
00:10:02 00:10:06 risk but it's more high risk because you
00:10:04 00:10:07 have to pay for your listings
00:10:06 00:10:09 as opposed to somewhere like facebook
00:10:07 00:10:10 and recarri but there's a lot more
00:10:09 00:10:12 reward potential there
00:10:10 00:10:15 because nobody else is doing it so
00:10:12 00:10:15 that's etsy hope it helped
