Meet the 15-year-old who made $1m using dropshipping

Engjell Berisha holds the title of being one of the most successful dropshippers in the world. What makes his story even more impressive is that he found success at just 15 years old. 

Growing up in Kosovo, there weren’t many resources on building an ecommerce business using dropshipping, so he was left to his own devices to learn the ins and outs of this selling strategy.

Fast forward 2 years later, he was a seasoned entrepreneur earning thousands of dollars every month. His newfound fortune allowed him to travel all over the world, including Paris, Los Angeles, Monaco, Las Vegas, Prague, and other cities he’d only ever dreamt of seeing in real life.

When it comes to dipping your toes into the world of dropshipping, there are pitfalls that some newbies may become victim to, such as using unreliable suppliers, selecting the wrong products or going too niche in your business approach. The 15-year-old quickly identified these hurdles and used his natural entrepreneurial abilities to identify what consumers were looking for.

Many who aren’t familiar with dropshipping may be sceptical of its lucrative results, but those who invest their time and passion are able to build an online business with little investment, without the need for holding stock and with incredible potential for scalability.

For those who haven’t read up on dropshipping, here’s how Engjell describes it:

“Dropshipping is a sales technique where you sell products that are in third-party inventory, such as a wholesaler or manufacturer. Vendors are not required to pay for the products until their customers pay for them first. It is one way for retailers to avoid investing cash for their inventory. This is mostly done with products from China and some sites that have manufacturers from China, where the product is obtained for a cheaper price and then sold at a higher price.”

With $1 million worth of sales, he has earnt over $100,000 in profit. His success has lit not only the entrepreneurial fire inside him, but ignited a passion for educating others on this technique for building a business online. 

Adding to his empire, Engjell has created professional ecommerce courses, a proven system for building your own online business. His mission is to pass his knowledge on to those who are new to ecommerce, or those who are scared to take the plunge into entrepreneurship.

His courses include live sessions, members groups, marketing strategies and the mistakes he made in the early days which you can avoid.

Gaining the knowledge required to build a dropship business is the first step, but what about the execution of your online store? Which platform will you use and how will you find reputable suppliers?
