The proliferation of e-commerce in the 21st century has pushed the concept of e-commerce dropshipping to the forefront. In this system, sellers partner with suppliers to focus more on selling without worrying about stock keeping. However, sellers often struggle with the e-commerce model owing to their lack of time and knowledge.
Ali Sher Shahid is an e-commerce automation expert who builds and manages e-commerce stores for business owners. He also takes this opportunity to equip business owners with the benefits of e-commerce dropshipping so that they can reap the best out of this business model.
Ali Sher Shahid had started eyeing growth opportunities in the e-commerce sector while he was still very young. However, it was only after gaining considerable experience in the marketplace that he realised the passive income potential of e-commerce dropshipping on popular e-commerce platforms. With the dropshipping business model, sellers do not have to keep items in stock which, very naturally, eliminates the inventory cost, as well as reduces the cost of setting up a store. Due to the low investment nature, the dropshipping business model has a lower business risk.
Shahid began by experimenting with some personal projects to explore the realm of dropshipping. He launched a store for dropshipping daily use items which generated profit in three months. Gradually, he began to assist business owners to migrate to e-commerce platforms to save their struggling physical stores and sell their products at a higher profit margin. Today, he offers end-to-end automation services to a number of clients who are earning six-figure monthly revenues with their digital stores.
Besides his consulting services and automation services, Shahid also provides coaching and mentorship to youngsters who are looking for growth opportunities using the e-commerce dropshipping business model. His goal is to educate budding businessmen about the advantages of dropshipping. so that they can utilise the full potential of this unique business model.
“E-commerce giants like Amazon and Walmart are still dominating the global e-commerce space. It becomes impossible for a domestic business to compete with these giants with their own website. So, I promote the concept of dropshipping on marketplaces to empower them in the e-commerce game,” says Shahid.
From buying to stocking to shipping, dropshipping takes away all responsibilities from business owners. Therefore, they do not have to invest a significant amount of time and resources to run their businesses at a profitable margin.
Shahid currently runs a tight team of trained professionals across multiple geographies who manage automation services for his clients. As the entire world is witnessing an e-commerce boom in the post-pandemic reality, Shahid aims to continue creating passive income opportunities for individuals through e-commerce dropshipping.
