But, why should you start your own dropshipping program?
Well, if you launch your own dropshipping program it actually means other retailers will sell your products in their online stores. This will let you focus more on making high-quality products or even finding new ways to improve your current range.
In other words, you will become a supplier for other retailers and this also means free advertising and customer support. How come? Well, your products will be sold by other store owners (we call them also dropshippers) and they will need to do ads for these products to attract customers to their store. They will also need to provide support whenever their customers have any questions or issues.
So, by starting a dropshipping program and becoming a supplier you let others sell my products with no extensive effort on my side, no infrastructure cost, no advertising cost, or no customer service extra cost.
What do you need to start a dropshipping program?
To start a dropshipping program you first need to find the following:
- A platform or software that can assist you throughout the entire dropshipping process, from product sync to auto-ordering. There is no better or more efficient way to dropship in 2023 than automate the entire process.
- Resellers or retailers that can dropship your items. If you can’t find resellers fast, you will lose a lot of time and energy in finding them and may even need to spend money on advertising for retailers to know about your dropshipping program.
Now, don’t lose hope, there are solutions for all of these, so read on.

- By using the Online Feeds tool to upload your products manually.

Now, once you get the email from us that you have been approved, your products will be added to our catalogue and over 40,000 store owners and retailers around the world will have access to them.
How will you get paid?
The final step when setting up your Supplier Account is to add your preferred payment method, and you can choose from Bank transfers (USD, EUR, GBP), Stripe transfers, Wise (formerly TransferWise), or Paypal. This is how you will get the money for your orders on AppScenic.
You will get the full amount for every order according to a predefined weekly schedule once that order is complete.
The order is complete after it has been shipped and the shipping days and return days have passed.
You can configure these Shipping Days and Return Days when you setup your AppScenic Account.
Now, here’s an example of how the payment date can be calculated:
Let’s say you shipped your order on August 10, and it takes 2 days for the order to arrive, and the customer can return it in 15 days.
Then the estimated payment date would be: 10 August + 2 days + 15 days = 27 August
If you want your payment sooner, then that can also be possible, but not in the beginning. We need some time to get to know you and make sure you can keep up with the high volume of orders, shipping times, and deliver only high-quality products.
