There are a few things that could be holding someone back from starting a Shopify dropshipping store. First and foremost, someone may not have the capital to start as Shopify can be pricey when you factor in things like hosting, paid Shopify themes, and apps. Additionally, someone may not have the time to invest in setting up and running a store as it can be quite time-consuming to source products, create product listings, and fulfill orders. Finally, someone may lack the knowledge or experience needed to get a store off the ground and be successful with dropshipping. While starting a Shopify store may seem daunting, there are plenty of resources (including the Shopify website itself) that can help someone get started.
