One of the amazing things about dropshipping is that you do not need a lot of money to get started.

Technically, the only fixed costs are your monthly web platform subscription - for example Shopify, which is $29/month. Plus the cost of your website domain, which is a one-time fee of less than $20. On a very minimal budget, you could start a store with $50.

However, there are many other costs that you could add to scale up your business if you have the budget to do so.

Variable costs may include: Ordering test products, purchasing a premium Shopify theme, running paid on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Google, and paid Shopify Apps.
