We have a so-called Shopify killer coming in the next couple of weeks or so.
The name - LaunchCart 2.0
I am excited about it and if you read this article you will understand why.
Keep in mind my FULL REVIEW of Launchcart will be out on the 23rd of August.
Before we start just a quick explanation...
Drop shipping is when you sell products that you don't buy in advance. Instead you list the product and when someone buys it you take their money and buy from your supplier.
It can work on Shopify, Ebay or Amazon.
Obviously this varies a lot and there is so much more into it, but that's the fastest way to explain it.

Today I want to share with you a not too long story. About me...and something else. Read until the end to find out what made me write this and why I am so excited while doing it.

But before we even start I want to say something :
If you are successful with Shopify and Drop Shipping or you are a "fan" of Shopify - This Post Is Not For You
Now that's out of the way let's proceed with the story itself.
This story is about how I got into drop shipping on Shopify.
A little known fact about me is that drop shipping is the first business model I tested.
About 3 years ago when I was getting started I met randomly a guy called James.
It's really funny the way that happened.
I was in the BUS. You know... the London Double Deckers.
So I was going to my not so great job at the time and had my earbuds on.
I was listening to George Strait (do you know him ?) - yep, American country.
I like country. 🙂
Anyway... so I was in the bus and I have noticed a guy sitting in front of me...checking his smartphone and I have noticed the Shopify logo.
I approached him and said: "Excuse me mate, I accidentally noticed that you are selling on Shopify and wanted to ask you a few question?"
At the time I haven't even started doing Shopify yet.
He looked at me and said :
"I have spent more than 6 months working on this store, countless hours and sleepless nights. I don't feel like talking about it with YOU. If you spend the same amount of time, effort, blood, sweat and tears you will PROBABLY succeed. Good Luck !"
That guy was very emotional about his store.
I was wandering why.
Anyway that is how my Shopify journey started.
BTW if you want to ready more about drop shipping and Shopify
At first it seemed quite easy. I couldn't believe that it's not only possible to sell stuff online outside the big platforms for selling stuff (Amazon Or Ebay).
So I've build my site and I was planning to sell Chinese jewellery. You know....that costs £1 and I was going to sell it for £10. Something like that.
I had ZERO experience and zero knowledge on how to make it work..
I probably don't need to say that but....
I Have Failed Big Time With My First Store
I didn't give up though.
I started a new one, from scratch but this time Print On Demand.
I was planning to sell t-shirts to VEGANS. Yep, Vegan stuff.
No, I am not a vegan but decided that it is a trending topic.
I created the new store and I said to myself :
" I wish there was a way that I could do AliExpress drop shipping and print on demand at the same time in the same store."
That can actually allow you to EXPAND MASSIVELY your catalogue of products and will actually allow you to test 2 different business models AT THE SAME TIME decreasing the time to find winner products!
I was thinking too far ahead AGAIN.
I still had no idea how to sell the products..
There is too much noise around it...FB Ads, Instagram, Snapchat and all of that.
I didn't know anything about marketing...
Anyway there was another MAJOR PROBLEM FOR ME.....
the whole business model felt a bit....not right. i Didn't want to sell Cheap chinese Products and Then customers will have to wait for ages for the product. i would never buy something that will need 3-4 weeks to arrive. i Couldn't understand how this can possibly work.
For me it felt a bit DODGY. I didn't want to do it with anyone because I had NO CONTROL over it. If the supplier was in the UK or US or a country like that I would feel way more secure.
I did not believe in this business model.
I knew that many people are successful but my self conciseness didn't let me do it.
Unfortunately after a few months a had to make a decision
I HAVE FAILED AND ACCEPTED DEFEAT
And that is how my journey in the world of drop shipping ended.
With a defeat.
Anyway it didn't cost me nothing (except the time and the effort)
There were so many other ways to make money online that I couldn't wait to try something else.
So I have quickly changed to something else and... it worked.
However I haven't finished with drop shipping.
I said to myself that I will be back when I am prepared better.
When I feel confident and ready....
Just a few years later and here we are....
I want to give it another shot.
I think that THIS TIME I am ready and I finally found something useful, something that can help me succeed.
If you are like me and you have failed in the past there might be millions of reasons for that.
Right now from my point of view I can clearly see a few issues with Shopify as a platform:
Now let me tell you something....
LaunchCart 2.0 is not available yet to the public..
There are NO REVIEWS for Launchcart YET.
It is in a late beta and will be available very very soon.
I can't give you any inside information about it however I will leave a link so you can get launch alerts.
That's why there are not pictures in the article as the product can't be shown yet.
I want you to know that I am very excited about LaunchCart 2.0 and that I am going to test it and all of that and write a PROPER REVIEW once the product launches.
But wait we are not done yet.
HERE IS SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF LAUNCHCART 2.0
From my point of view....this time we really have a Shopify Competitor and I don't know about you but I am really excited!
Well, first competition is a good thing. When LaunchCart 2.0 launches and Shopify see that they are now having a real competitor they will up their game.
So even people that don't switch to LaunchCart 2.0 will benefit from the product because it will force Shopify to up their game.
So What Exactly Is LaunchCart 2.0 ?
I'll keep this short - LaunchCart 2.0 is a cloud-based software The developers have been working on it for quite sometime and it soon will be ready to be released. E-commerce stores ready in seconds! That's what it is. Oh and it comes ready with all the tools and everything you might need.
I know you are as excited as I am but most importantly...
LaunchCart 2.0 can definitely change the e-commerce as we know it.
