How Much Money Do You Need To Start DS Domination?
How much money do you need to start DS Domination is a question that a lot of people have been asking me recently so I thought I would put a post together to specially tackle it. First of all, to get access to the DSD PRO training system, it really does cost only $19.95 with no other hidden costs whatsoever. Unless of course, you also wanted to become an affiliate of the company which would cost an additional $10 per month.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that in no way are you required to become an affiliate in order to buy the products. The affiliate opportunity is optional. If you want to be able to earn commissions for introducing other to DS Domination then you can easily activate the affiliate side within your back office area but it’s not a mandatory thing.
In fact, most of my team mates are purely customers only and have not even activated the affiliate side. But for those of you who would like to take advantage of the very lucrative compensation plan, becoming an affiliate is a smart move. Furthermore, by joining the fast track team, you will get access to various different training, tools and resources to help you to learn how to market, advertise and promote the company as an affiliate.
The only other costs attached to starting your new drop shipping business is eBay and PayPal fees. eBay has two different types of seller fees; listing fees and final value fees. Listing fees are charged whenever you list an item for sale. However, the amount in which ebay charges for listing an item varies depending on which country you are from. The good news is that, by selling in the USA, you will be able to take advantage of 50 free buy it now listings each and every month to kick start your drop ship business. After the first 50 in any given month, it then costs around about 0.30c to list an item for sale.
That’s why some people (including myself) decided to go down the route of starting an eBay store as it comes with so many benefits. Including; the ability to list a set number of items for sale each month for completely free and also the ability to set your listings as ”good till cancelled” which means they run forever until either someone buys the item or you cancel the listing. You can open your own shop on eBay for a low monthly fee.
Final value fees and PayPal fees are only deducted AFTER you sell an item. You will receive training when you join DS Domination on how to calculate your profits minus the eBay final value fee and paypal processing fees before listing an item for sale. Therefore final value fees and PayPal fees are not something to worry about as by calculating the profit before listing an item, it ensures you will always make a profit when you sell an item.
In conclusion, to get access to the DS Domination training, at the PRO level, it really does only cost a measly $19.95 per month. There are no hidden fees whatsoever. The only other cost is the $10 per month to become an affiliate of DSD, which, as mentioned before, is optional.
The other costs you need to take into consideration are eBay listing fees. The good news is that by selling in the USA, you will be able to take advantage of those 50 free listings. Also keep in mind, you do not necessarily need to be in the USA to sell in the USA. The 50 free listings is a great opportunity for you to get your foot through the door and test out the system without stacking up a listing fee bill when still learning.
If you prefer to list items for sale in other countries, such as the UK, there is the option to open up a shop which will come with significant discounts and many other benefits as talked about before. However, Roger does advise against opening up a shop in the beginning. It’s best to list and sell some items first before making that commitment.
I hope this article has helped you to better understand the costs involved with DS Domination and starting your own drop shipping business.
