Hey everyone! So, I'm very new to drop shipping - I've really just gotten into it in the past few days - but, I am already well on my way towards opening my first store, give or take a few aspects that I'm still fairly lost on.
And that's really what I wan't to ask you all about, those lingering questions...
Okay so here goes. First of all, is it common practice to contact a potential drop shipper as soon as my store front is complete design-wise, payment-wise, all that sort of thing, or are there still further steps to take before I should reach out? To put that a little simpler, my website looks done apart from the products - which are all empty. This won't scare off a potential supplier?
Which leads me to number two, which is, once I do contact a supplier and get that all worked out, how will the connection between my store front and their supply be made? I guess I'm just sort of unsure as to where the actual birdge lies, you know? Will they just provide me with a link, or will the invoice just get sent to them!?
Any help would be fantastic, thanks everyone!
Edit: I should add, I'm using shopify as my online store front.
Edit2: Another thing came to mind as I searched the settings - should I buy a domain prior to contacting a supplier?? I've still got the whole .myshopify thing in there...
