There are so many online retailers selling inexpensive clothes and I’m curious where they buy their inventory. When I try to research clothes, I’m being pointed to Alibaba and I know that’s not where. Not just fashionova but Venus etc. Any ideas? submitted by /u/daisyv83 [link] [comments
Quick Question about FB Ads Learning Phase
by /u/westfallrogue on September 14, 2019 at 5:39 am
So what is the Learning Phase? Well I know what it is supposed to be, but none of my ads ever go into this phase. I've seen it a lot in a lot of the tutorial videos on YouTube when people are showing their ad manager. My ads simply go into review and then into active, I am worried I'm missing out on a crucial component of FB advertising? I use video ads only. Can someone share some insight into this? Thanks! submitted by /u/westfallrogue [link] [comments
Facebook Business Account Page disabled - need to reach Facebook!!
by /u/BigLimpin on September 14, 2019 at 5:36 am
Hi all. I just started an IG and Shopify combo where I intend to get a following and eventually as a source of traffic. It's crucial that I have the ability to tap a photo and link an item for sale. In order for me to do ANYTHING related to that I need a Facebook Business page. So I opened up a page. They wanted to verify my email and identity. Fine. Took a pic of my id and sent it. I tried a day or two later, and it said that my account was disabled for violating policies! Which policies? I hadn't even put info in about the company or of our products! I tried to open it another account and the same thing happened. Verification and disabling. There was an option for "if you think you were wrongly disabled let us know" but I haven't heard from them at all. I tried to find any number or email address for support but can't get a hold of anyone. Well I found the general number but they said you gotta do it online. I'm just a dude that's trying to open up a business, can anyone lend any advice? submitted by /u/BigLimpin [link] [comments
Canada shop, Canadian customer. Request for international invoice?
by /u/john1deere on September 13, 2019 at 10:47 pm
Kinda confused how to proceed. My shop is in Canada, I only sell to Canada. The guy bought something from me in Canada shipped in Canada. Now he's asking for a commercial invoice for an American company with USA address. Is there any value to a custom invoice on my side? Is this some kind of scam im not aware of? submitted by /u/john1deere [link] [comments

Shopify Inventory Management App?
by /u/rygh_pipes on September 13, 2019 at 6:19 pm
Hey there everyone, I'm looking for an inventory management app for Shopify that allows me to also keep track of my raw materials. I make handmade tobacco pipes for a living, and it's quite a pain having to keep track of 100s of different acrylic stems and 30 variants of wood blocks in my workshop. For Example: It would be nice to load my "raw materials inventory" and then whenever I make a new "Large pipe with Blue Swirl Stem", the app subtracts 1 Large wood block and 1 blue swirl stem from my Raw materials count, and then adds 1 Large Pipe with Blue Swirl Stem to my Shopify inventory. Also, if the app could send an alert when I'm running low on something, that would be a bonus, but not a necessity. I hope that was a detailed enough description of what I'm needing. Please reach out if clarification is needed 🙂 (I'm going to post this in a couple of related subs because sometimes posts that aren't "how to make $50k a day" can get buried, so if you see it pop up around Reddit, please know I'm not spamming. Have an awesome day!) submitted by /u/rygh_pipes [link] [comments

I am looking for a fulfillment centre for one of my brands.

Ideally they would be able to manage the sales from one shopify store. Thanks! EDIT: THE REASON I NEED CANADIAN WAREHOUSING AND FULFILLMENT, SOME ITEMS ARE UNDER 2cm AND COST $1.80 TO SHIP CANADA WIDE!! submitted by /u/jlifer [link] [comments

Customs when shipping US to Canada
by /u/401kLover on September 12, 2019 at 11:11 pm
Can anyone explain how customs works when shipping to Canada? I ran some ads in Canada for a bit and was seeing a solid conversion rate, but then I had a few customers get charged outrageous customs fees. This only occurred through UPS, and the fees were so outrageous because UPS "customs brokering" fees were nearly twice as much as the actual customs import fee. However, I've noticed that none of my customers have actually been charged any customs fees when I ship through USPS. Everything I've read says they should get charged, however I've verified with several customers that the package was just delivered without any customs related issues. My packages are generally between $100-$200 and I'm shipping them from the US. Can anyone provide me with any insight in terms of USPS and Canadian customs? submitted by /u/401kLover [link] [comments
