When starting a dropshipping business, many store owners don’t want to disclose to their customers that they’re dropshipping. Although it’s a 100% legit business model, many people still hold opinions against it. And admitting dropshipping might hurt the store’s reputation.
Because of that, we conduct a quick research on some of the most popular dropshipping stores and see how they tackle this problem. Do they lie to their customers, or do they just admit it?
Surprisingly, there’re many creative ways you can tell your customers you’re dropshipping without explicitly mentioning it. Below are some of them.
1. “We work around the clock to partner with product manufacturers” – Inspire Uplift
First, let’s see how one of the best dropshipping stores go about dropshipping.
Inspire Uplift says that “It’s crystal-clear – we want to bring you products that you will love. We fulfill that vision by working around the clock to partner with product manufacturers offering the most interesting products available.”
When dropshipping, you essentially work with product manufacturers or other sellers to fulfill your customers’ orders. Therefore, this is a very clever and honest way to say you’re dropshipping without explicitly saying it.
2. “We got you covered with highly professional suppliers and production houses that we keep in close contact with” – Smart Saker
A very successful but less well-known dropshipping store is Smart Saker.
Similarly, the store states that “Since we know you want all sorts of high-value products, we got you covered with highly professional suppliers and production houses that we keep in close contact with and vet daily so that they fulfill our intense selection process.”
Smart Saker also throws in some stuff like “highly professional” and “intense selection process” to make it look more trustworthy.
3. “We aim to deliver the best selection of deals on innovative, unique, and quality products at the lowest possible price” – Until Gone
Until Gone talks about dropshipping a little bit different than the above two stores. They see themselves as a deal portal where customers can find the best products at the lowest possible price.
“UntilGone.com is a tailored-to-fit-you shopping experience. We aim to deliver the best selection of deals on innovative, unique, and quality products at the lowest possible price while providing a helpful, efficient, and personal approach to our customer experience.”
They also add a little touch of their customer service to the statement. Many dropshippers often neglect the importance of customer service and fail to see that it plays an enormous role in the long-term success of dropshipping success. So, this is an important thing to learn from.
4. “We ship directly from the top factories on the planet and pass the savings on to you.” – Warmly Decor
Warmly’s dropshipping niche is home decor. All of their products look very modern and professional.
Regarding how they talk about dropshipping without explicitly saying it to their customers, they state that “We ship directly from the top factories on the planet and pass the savings on to you.“
On top of that, they’re extremely honest about long shipping times and quickly back it up by talking about the benefits customers can gain from buying their products. “The downside: you have to wait longer for shipping (usually between 15-25 days). The upside: incredible savings and incredible, quality-assured items backed by our famous 100% money-back guarantee.”
5. “We are your one-stop destination to all your daily needs – spreading positivity and creativity with our unique finds.” – CommonLee
CommonLee sells products in almost every category, ranging from clothing, jewelry, home decor, pets to electronic accessories.
They see themselves as ” We are your one-stop destination to all your daily needs – spreading positivity and creativity with our unique finds. We started in 2017, and it is our mission to only list the BEST and most AFFORDABLE items on this website.”
Similarly, using words such as “Unique,” “Best,” and “Affordable” can make your claim more impressive.
6. “Our goal is to provide new and refreshingly fun interactive cat toys that are not available in stores.” – Amazingly Cat
Amazingly Cat is a well-known cat dropshipping store with an impressive social media presence.
On the about page, they focus on the element “not available in stores” – a smart way to implicitly talk about dropshipping and also a reason why customers should buy products from their online store. “AmazinglyCat.com was founded in September 2016 with the goal to provide new and refreshingly fun interactive cat toys that are not available in stores.“
7. “Our team works tirelessly to fill the store with everything you need” – ThePiHut
ThePiHut claims that “Our team works tirelessly to fill the store with everything you need – whether it’s with a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, micro: bit, or any other board. We also keep prices LOW to help make learning to code accessible to as many people as possible.”
Focusing on the effort you take to find good products for your customers is a fair justification for doing dropshipping.
8. “Our mission is to track down all of our most beloved stationery items, make them easily available on our store, and ship them free to stationery addicts over the planet!” – NotebookTherapy
Finally, we have NotebookTherapy – a niche dropshipping store selling cute East-Asia stationery.
Their statement is, “We decided right then to make it our mission to track down all of our most beloved stationery items, make them easily available on our store, and ship them free to stationery addicts over the planet!”
Again, you can be extremely honest with your customers about how you get your products without explicitly saying your store is dropshipping.
