Who are we ?
Have you ever thought about running your own online business?

Our ambition is to turn your passion into a profitable online store – regardless whether you consider to run it as neat side gig or if you want to go all in. And best of all – no prior e-commerce experienced is needed. We’ve got you covered.

We will illustrate a step-by step tutorial on how to search products on Taobao (Chinese marketplace), how to "import" products from 3rd party marketplaces such as Taobao, 1688, and Tmall to your online store, how to estimate shipping fee, picking the most suitable shipping line, etc. Bring a laptop if you want to learn them along the way - signing up for an account on BuckyDrop is free:)

We’ve designed our platform and services to make it easy, straightforward, affordable and even fun to run your e-commerce business. If you have a Shopify or Woocommerce store, simply install our plug-in and you are ready to buy and sell Chinese products in a few clicks - everything fully automated.

So what is drop shipping?

In the standard retail model (even online) the store needs to keep inventory of the products it is selling, which is both more costly and more risky, as you tie up capital in products you don’t know if or when you will sell. Drop shipping on the other hand allows the store to skip the warehousing issue — when you sell a product, it is directly purchased from a third party manufacturer and shipped directly to the end customer (the actual consumer). As a result, you as a store or brand owner never have to handle or deal with any inventory. You have nothing to lose and everything to win!
