But before we do that, guys, I'm ready to jump into today's video. Are you ready? Here we go. All right. Let's show you how to add a dropshipper in Wix.

Adding A Dropshipper to Wix

So you've got your Wix website right here. What you can do is maybe you've already added a product maybe, or maybe you've already added your shop. Maybe you haven't whatever the case may be. You have to add your actual online store here in Wix. You can see right here, you can simply go over this, my store on the left, or you can go to add, and you can add Wix Stores through the add apps they also have online store templates if you didn't already, but what you need is you need the actual base, which is the online store.

Once you have that, we have to go ahead and add our dropshipping service, right? So you have Wix Stores, Wix Stores is the actual storefront, but the dropshipping service is what happens on the backend. So when someone places an order on Wix Stores, the dropshipping service will get notified of that, and they will process the purchase. They will create the shirt, the mug, whatever the product is, and they will fulfill the shipping.

So basically your goal as a dropshipper owner is to get traffic to your website and turn those traffic leads into sales, right? You're trying to turn your traffic into sales because after that, you don't touch the rest. The rest is hands off on your end. Printful will take care of the rest. They'll take care of the printing of the product. They'll take care of the shipping of the product and the fulfillment of the product. So it's pretty hands off after purchase.

Other than the fact that you're going to want to make sure that you have a customer service team available or yourself customer service, and you want to make sure they have a good order and a checkout experience through store. All that's gotta be covered by you. You've got to build the infrastructure, but once that sale takes place, Printful does the rest.

So what has to happen first is you have to go to Add Apps and you've got to go to Printful. You'll click that. This is the brand new integration. It's beautiful to even see this right now. You'll then click add. And then what has to happen is you have to give a Printful the ability to actually read the data that comes through. So you'll click allow and install, and then you arrive at this beautiful thing. So if you haven't already, what you're going to want to do first and foremost, before anything is to create an account in Printful.

Now I've got a link right down in the description advice. Yes, this is an affiliate link. It costs you nothing more, but if you enjoy my content here on the channel, I would love if you can use my link down below to sign up to Printful, it'd be much appreciated. And literally there's no difference between using my link or going straight to Printful. Other than the fact that you're supporting here, me and the channel by using my link. So if you want to go ahead and use that link is in the description below, and you have to create your account for Printful.

So once you do create your account for Printful and I'm just going to go ahead and sign in, you then have to confirm your connection. So you'll press connect store to wixmywebsite. And then what we're going to do here is our product. Data is being synchronized, right? So what's going to happen is it's going to pull the product data that's currently in your which store you can see my Wix Store is now linked.

There's five products. Would you look at that? These are the same products that are right here. We've got same products right here, right? So what we see here is we see five products. These are not synced currently. So what you can do is, you can click on them and you can unselect them. You can come into here, you can edit them and you can choose the product. And then you can choose what type of product it is. You're going to have to sync it.

So you can see there was no sunk products currently. And there's a reason for that. It's because we have to add products, which means we have to come in here. Let's say we want to build a t-shirt, we'll get a t-shirt, and then you'll want to design the, t-shirt go through it, go through, add the pricing, and then it'll have you sync.

So now when you come into Wix Stores we go to settings we could come in here. Obviously you guys know the whole shebang. You can edit the design and everything within your store, but you're going to want to manage, and you're going to want to go to manage store.

So now that you have a successful Printful connection, you can go ahead and you can actually add products straight from in here. If you go to store products, you'll see our products right here. You can click on it and then you can see, you can add all of your product information in here, inventory, shipping, all that good stuff. And you can add your products right here in Wix Stores, but what you need to do is you need to actually add products via Printful so they can sync over and go straight to Wix Store. So that way, when the data comes over, and by the way, you can refresh your data here. So when you add products, you can go ahead and refresh it and it'll re sync the data. You can also change the settings in here, but that is how you link your store with Wix Stores. That is how you start that drop shipping service here in Wix.


I will do a more in depth video on the second part of this with adding the products and actually syncing the products, creating the products, doing that whole shebang, because it's really cool. And I'll do that as a second part video, but for right now, that is part one.

So if this video helped you out, drop a like down below, also again, you're going to need a Printful account to do this. So if you don't already have one, it would be awesome. If you can use my link down in the description below, it's just a way to support me in the channel. But if you're like "Hey, screw this guy. I don't want to use this link", no hard feelings. It's all good, but I would appreciate it.
