The Best Facebook Marketplace Dropshipping Software

The Best Facebook Marketplace Dropshipping Software

if you drop ship on facebook marketplace
or facebook shops chances are you either
use fbm fox
or you use z drop or if you're new and
you're looking for the best listing
software or the best software to manage
your your drop shipping business on
marketplace or shops chances are you're
looking at one or two of these and
you're trying to figure out which one's
better and which one's better for you so
in today's video i'm gonna grade both z
drop and fbm fox on a number of
different parameters we're gonna grade
them on price
marketplace lister shops lister stok
pricing and monitoring and like stok
changing and price changing their
customer service and their auto ordering
and then on top of that we're going to
put all that together and i'm going to
give you my
opinion of which one is better and why
for beginners but also advanced people
alike so the first thing that we're
going to grade these two on is price so
z drops price currently is 16.99 a month
it also comes with a seven day free
trial so that you can try it out now
that is a very good price for everything
that it does it's only 17 a month pretty
much everyone can afford that and if you
can't afford 17 you know dollars a month
you shouldn't be starting a business let
alone you know a drop shipping business
where you have to spend money okay so
the price is very advantageous for z
drop now fbm fox also comes with a free
version of their lister but their lister
specifically only lets you list for the
free version specifically only lets you
list 50 products and then caps you have
50. so it's really not free it just kind
of lets you get your feet in the door to
test the software
and then once you obviously start
listing you hit that 50 cap you have to
pay for the software now that's not that
big of a deal because the pricing here
comes in at 29 a month for the bare
minimum plan now 29 a month only gives
you 200 products and this is really
where z drop comes in and crushes fbm
fox in my opinion the original version
of z drop where you're paying 17 a month
comes with literally everything there's
no up charges there's no you know hidden
fees for you know capping you out of
certain products whereas fbm fox yes
their base plan comes in you know free
obviously and then when you upgrade
their base plan comes in at 29 a month
but then as you add more products and if
you watch this channel or even if you
don't one of the biggest and best things
that i do to scale my business is list
products consistently every day on my
marketplace accounts i list a hundred
and forty products everything well my
va's list 140 products on each
marketplace account every single day so
we mix it quality products with quantity
as well and we take some shots in the
dark right it's literally like the same
analogy as like baseball if you have
more swings at the at the plate you
might as well take them why wouldn't you
and marketplace lets you list 150 per
day
per marketplace account right on shops
we list as many as possible after that's
done and i also have a va that does that
after their processing orders so for it
for the day so
really the quantity thing is massive and
that's why in my opinion z drop blows
them out of the water here because if
you start listing 500 a thousand 10 000
products it really gets up there really
fast so let's say hypothetikally you
wanted to list a thousand products
that's seventy dollars a month not that
big of a deal but still a lot more
expensive than than z drop right on my
one store i have upwards of twenty five
thousand uh products and honestly on on
my marketplace accounts i don't i don't
know how much it is because i can't
count but like if i counted i would
assume it's at least ten thousand maybe
closer to twenty thousand uh so let's
just take the one shop for example and
say that we are listening to that one
shop well over twenty five thousand
product would be seven hundred dollars a
month for this software okay now if you
go upwards of a hundred thousand
products it can run you three thousand
dollars a month okay whereas z drop just
charges you a base fee of seventeen
dollars and they don't ever up charge
you there's no hidden fees for you know
going up the pricing tiers like that so
in my opinion here z drop wins on price
hands down no questions asked now with
the marketplace lister they both do
pretty much the same thing listing wise
with facebook marketplace personal
accounts you can literally just use it
it's like a copy and paste software they
both both work very well in my opinion
and really nobody has the edge so for
the marketplace lister specifically both
z drop and fbm fox have a tie there they
both can get the job done you need to
keep in mind that if you're listing more
on fbm fox that even with the
marketplace lister like the more you
list the more the price is going to go
up okay so keep that in mind as well but
the functionality of the list are on
marketplace
they both tie okay now with the shops
lister fbm fox has a beautiful shops
lister okay you can literally just add
products to your fpm fox store and then
integrate that in the back end of your
shop so it automatikally updates with
those products you don't actually have
to add them in every single time it will
just automatikally do that i believe
it's like every hour you can set it up
it's very very good now the issue with
that even even though it's good the
issue with that just like the lister and
just like the pricing is add you as you
add more and more products what they
don't tell you obviously is that you're
gonna slowly you're gonna have to
upgrade to maintain that right so even
though you can add products super fast
and super easily you're gonna have to
pay for that privilege okay and so
whereas on z drop just like i said they
charge you that base 17 fee and yes that
might go up you know a dollar or two
here and there every couple months but
it's still very very minimal and it
doesn't go up like as you add more and
more products on z drop with the shops
lister you can add literally hundreds
and thousands of products a day just
export the spreadsheet on the actual uh
z drop like on zdrop.com on their
software and then upload it super fast
to your fbm shop or your to your
facebook shop i have an entire tutorial
on this even though fbm box has a better
integration with their shops lister
z drop does a beautiful job with it as
well and the price for the actual amount
of products that you're able to list
literally thousands is still that 17 a
month and you can do it just as fast in
my opinion
and it doesn't cost you an arm and a leg
literally you're not handicapping your
business by paying thousands of dollars
a month uh you know just for the
privilege okay
now shops uh the shops lister z drop
wins in my opinion there with the stok
monitoring and the stok changing and
the price monitoring the price changing
z drop doesn't do that fbn fox does and
while they do do the stok and the price
changing so they automatikally get the w
there because z drop doesn't even
compete with them there but that's
reflected in the price right because fbm
fox has to do the stok monitoring
changing of the stok and do the price
monitoring and changing the stok their
software requires a lot more i don't
even know what the actual like like term
is but but like a lot more bandwidth or
a lot more um
like server like space i guess right so
they have to pay for that and that's
reflected in the price because they're
managing so many products and monitoring
so many products and then actually
changing that with their software in the
back because of that yes they win
because z drop doesn't compete with them
there but that is reflected in the price
and that is reflected when you're
listening to shops when you're listening
to marketplace and just reflected in
your monthly price overall okay so keep
that in mind while i'm giving them the w
here
it really isn't all that advantageous
because in my opinion and i've created a
video on this in the past i'll drop it
at the bottom of the description if you
want to check it out you don't need to
monitor your stok and you don't need to
change your prices for
99.9999 percent of your items because
the honest reality is and this ties back
into the quantity listing that i was
toking about earlier like why you want
a listing quantity 95 to 98 if not more
of your listings will never get traction
and they will never sell so in this case
you're paying for you know
99.99 of your items that are never gonna
you're never going to need to worry
about the stok of and you're never
going to need to change the price up
okay so you're paying for all that
privilege but you're not really seeing
that reflected in the items that are
selling i prefer and this is exactly how
i run my business is i don't monitor the
stok and i don't monitor or change the
prices preemptively i only do that after
the fact if something potentially sells
that's out of stok i try to find it on
another website or i fake ship it which
is something else i've toked about in
the past
and then just refund the customer
or what i basically do is i'll mark it
out of stok and i'll just cancel the
order if i can afford it okay i also
don't monitor the price because chances
are the price isn't changing that much
or that drastikally so hypothetikally i
could either again market fake shipped
cancel the order or i could just take a
loss on that specific product and raise
it in the future and you might be
thinking like why would you do that but
the reality is if you're if you're
making like 100 sales a day across all
your shops for example and this is an
issue on like one of your your items
it's not that big of a deal because
you're still paying that 17 a month
you're not paying three grand a month to
monitor all these things and change all
the prices there you're really focusing
on the items that are working for you
and only focusing on them and it's not
that big of a deal because your metrics
are gonna cover you across all those
different factors there so you can
change the price or you can afford to
cancel an order again i've gone more in
depth in the video that i linked down in
the description and why i feel that way
i highly suggest i know this isn't a
popular opinion in the actual space but
i highly suggest that you watch that
video so you understand the thought
press process there i don't monitor my
stok and i don't monitor my prices or
change my prices with software i do that
manually if i need to because the
reality is only about one percent of
your items if not a little bit less will
ever get any traction or ever sell so
why are you paying for the other 99 to
monitor and change
when you don't need to okay so that's my
opinion there also i have not personally
used the stok monitoring system or the
price changing system on fbm fox so this
is just hearsay take this with a grain
of salt i haven't used it personally but
i have heard from other people that have
used it that it doesn't work all that
well all the time it works well on
certain things but some suppliers it
doesn't work really at all so keep that
in mind you might be paying for that
part of the software when you're not
actually getting the results there now
the next thing is the customer service
and hands down fbm fox takes the cake
with customer service they have a lot
better customer service z drops customer
service is hit or miss honestly you have
to kind of bug them on their facebook
page or reta reach out to their support
i have not uh keep in mind i also am in
their affiliate program so like i have i
can just message them really fast on
facebook and they respond to me it seems
well like a lot of people that i've
toked to do tend to have issues with
their customer service but again they're
only charging you 17 a month for all
these different things while fbm fox is
charging you thousands of dollars
potentially a month or hundreds of
dollars so they can obviously afford to
have that extra person there to do
customer service so keep that in mind
fbm fox wins the customer service battle
hands down
now the auto ordering battle here z drop
doesn't have an auto ordering function
and fbm fox's auto ordering function is
still very very new i believe it's not
currently in beta i think it's past that
but i have not personally tested it here
so i don't have any experience you know
with their auto ordering system so
basically for example let's say you used
fbm fox to
you know list a product from walmart
right and because fbm fox listed that
and you're using fbm fox they also know
where that supplier is in that actual
url so if you buy auto ordering credits
not only would you not need a va to list
it because fpm fox will do that not only
would you need a va to monitor the stok
and the price is there or change them
but you also hypothetikally if it works
well again i have not tested it myself
they'll just auto order that for you if
you use an auto order credit so it
pretty much streams a lot streamlines
the process like once you you list
something you can also have the the
stok and the price change uh for you
automatikally but you can also have it
auto ordered for you as well so that is
a very cool
promising feature that i definitely
think is very very cool in the future
and i would love to explore but i have a
va that processes orders i have va's
that do all these things already um and
for what i'm paying my va is a lot
potentially cheaper than you know three
thousand dollars a month or whatever the
price would be for however many products
they have so it's promising i'm willing
to explore it in the future it's
something that we should all keep our
eye on because it's something that is a
you know
a new frontier in the space but for the
time being i haven't really tested it so
keep that in mind i would recommend
testing it yourself if you're interested
it is a really cool feature but because
z-drop doesn't compete with them
obviously fbm fox wins the auto ordering
battle here again that's reflective in
the price of the software okay now a
little bonus here is the affiliate
program um this has no bearing on you
unless you're recommending this to your
you know subscribers or your followers
or other people that you know of but the
affiliate program like fbm fox wins
hands down now z drops affiliate program
was probably paying me like 2 300 bucks
a month in the beginning and then they
just like stopped paying me out
affiliate commissions for the past six
months and i've heard other people tok
about this as well and so that does kind
of rub me the wrong way i don't really
like it and again this goes back to
their customer service which isn't that
great but again that's reflected in the
price and so the whole point that i'm
saying here and the whole reason that i
that i added this in is because i could
literally make thousands of dollars
recommending fbm fox in youtube videos
in my courses and across the board i can
make recurring commissions of thousands
of dollars recommending fbm fox but i'm
not doing that even though z drop isn't
really paying me to recommend their
software anymore because their affiliate
program just like stopped for whatever
reason and yes i don't like that but
ultimately the main and most important
thing for me
is to recommend the best software that's
gonna do the best job at the best price
for you okay and even though z-drop
isn't paying me and even though i could
make thousands of dollars recommending
fbm fox i'm still recommending z drop
here i still think it's a better
software for all the reasons outlined
even though they're not paying me to say
that because ultimately for the price
that you're getting which again is 17 a
month the marketplace lister does just
as good as as good of a job the shops
lister is better the pricing is 1 000
times better and even though it doesn't
monitor or change prices or stok even
though their customer service is a
little bit shaky and even though they're
not introducing anything like auto
ordering anytime soon
what what you're paying for is the most
important things that you need to run
your jobs your drop shipping business
and actually get results right in my
opinion
first of all fbm fox needs to get a hold
of the pricing because it's way too high
in my opinion um
when fpm fox would make more sense for
you is
if you have maybe
a few dozen or a few hundred products
that are all winners and that's your
approach then maybe fbm fox makes more
sense for you because you're not paying
as much and you're getting like the
automated factor of all those those
products and you're not really you don't
really have that many products you're
not paying that much right but for me i
recommend what works for me which is a
mix of quality products that i've sniped
and done research on and also quantity
and taking shots in the dark and that's
how i've built literally multiple
personal marketplaces and multiple shops
to tens of thousands of dollars in sales
very very fast okay and i've done six
figures on both of those so i have
experience doing that so that's why i'm
recommending what works for me all right
so in my opinion overall for the price
and the functionality and what you need
it for
z drop wins and those are the reasons
why
you
