I picked up this product and I am currently in the process of going through the course (more updates as I get further into it), but for now I am writing a general overview of what drop shipping is and what this training course has inside.
What is Drop Shipping?
Drop shipping is a pretty new supply chain technique where the last link of the cycle, the retailer, is not forced to retain stock for the merchandise he is marketing. Instead, the goods ship directly from the manufacturer to the end user, the customer. As a result of this new style of commerce, several drop shipping tutorials and software have entered the online scene.
It is indeed easier to sustain a successful online drop shipping business when you receive valuable advice from an experienced player. Anton Louis Kraly is one of those experienced players. His eCommerce business from $0 to over $1.8 Million by the age of 24. Since then, he has created multiple 7 figure businesses by leveraging the power of drop shipping. I would say this qualifies him as an expert. In this review I will show you what you find on the inside of his course “Drop Shipping Lifestyle” and give my opinion on its Pros and Cons.
DROP SHIP LIFESTYLE OVERVIEW
Anton Kraly has schooled over 3,000 students in the last 24 months through his unique web-based training. It is probably one of the largest and most complete of the bunch, offering extensive training and ease of use for the novice online businessman. His website stands out as packed full of information and it is probably one of the most informative sites in the drop shipping space.
The training has friendly structure and a very easy to use navigation. This online training course goes beyond expectations when it comes to training materials. It looks and feels excellent for the beginners who want to take the first steps on the path to having their own online successful business without having to risk too much capital, as they would running a regular retail business.
Having seen a few drop shipping courses, this one is by far the most detailed, well thought out and easy to use that I have seen. It is, however, pricier than other packages offering the same services, but I do believe you get what you pay for in this instance. Whether it is worth it or not, I will let you decide.
DROP SHIP LIFESTYLE FEATURES
Under its Core Modules menu tab, DROP SHIP LIFESTYLE offers a spot-on approach for both a beginner entrepreneur and an experienced businessman. The most important essential aspects of drop shipping are tackled here in a very organized manner with little room for misunderstandings.
The training videos offered through the members area of the site, except being very informative, could be shorter in order for the viewers not to lose attention. In its well structured menu you will find everything you need to succeed in this or any other retail business, from the appropriate mindset to tips offered grace to the owner’s extended experience. The forum is very active and has lots of interaction, it has many experienced members. It is a useful resource for those going through the course and people that have already completed and implemented the courses instructions.
DROP SHIP LIFESTYLE – SETTING UP YOUR STORE
Although, nowadays, there are several web ecommerce software providers, offering full support and server implementation, Drop Ship Lifestyle chose to go with SHOPIFY, one very easy to use ecommerce software. Under the Shopify tab of the menu you can find everything you need to know in order to successfully run your web based store. This menu option starts with a training material designed to serve as an information directory in case you get stuck building you first online store using this provider. Here, the video trainings come indeed very handy, as a visual understanding of your ecommerce provider is much more valuable and useful for a beginner than a theoretical one.
The Retreat tab also plays a big role in helping you make the most of your online retailer experience. Besides the slides and videos from the presenters at the first Drop Ship Lifestyle retreat that took place in Chiang Mai, Thailand in October of 2014, you can also find a lot of tips and tricks on maximizing the number of visitors and customers of your virtual store, increasing online visibility, promotions and other useful stuff. You should definitely visit these pages, as the pricy membership is kind of justified by being offered assistance in a complete understanding of the online retail market and the necessary tools you need to be one of its players.
This niche, born of the new retail business concept of “drop shipping”, already has its players with well established places, merits and disadvantages. Among some of the most notorious drop shipping training providers are:
ELITE DROP SHIPPERS
I decided to purchase Drop Ship Lifestyle rather than those, simply because I have heard about it from many high profile online players. I trust them, so I put my trust in products they recommend or take time to talk about on their podcasts. I haven’t heard anything about the other products, and some of them are the same price after you upgrade to their premium programs or install/purchase the software they recommend.
PROS & CONS
- Friendly interface
- Very informative
- Customer oriented
- Complete approach
- Quality web based trainings

In my view, the most difficult part about running a successful drop shipping ecommerce business consists of finding the right product in the beginning and then running a clever marketing campaign in the end.
DROP SHIP LIFESTYLE makes sure that both, the easy part and the hard part, are tackled with great attention to detail and a very comprehensive approach.
I would recommend it!
If you have purchased any of the other products about drop shipping, I would love to hear your feedback on them. This course will take a while to go through and implement, but I am hoping to have a store to share soon. I will give updates as I go.
