Automated Drop Shipping with SellerBot Our Full Review

One of the questions I am regularly asked is what is the best system to use for a dropship website?

There are a few different options available at the moment on the marketplace, one of the newer options I have recently come across is SellerBot (available at SellerBot.com).

I managed to get in touch with the owners so that I could review their product.

There is also a demo of the e-commerce system available that you can preview as well.

You can see this at:

Simple SellerBot.com stats

 

The SellerBot dashboard does give you a simple overview of how your store is performing at any given time.

 

Products area.

Your products.

The product page can be accessed easily by clicking products > your products.

This displays a list of all the products that are currently loaded to the store. A great feature is the in-line editing that is available on this page. You can simply click on a product name, model, price, quantity or its status – type a new text or information and then click the update button to instantly save your changes.

This would be a great times saver as you can easily modify a number of products at the same time.

Is also a in a button that you can click if you need to modify the product even further. This area lets you not only change all the information about the product images but also assigned categories, create sales and discounts and even select ‘related products’ that will help you cross sell your items.

This area does seem very in depth so may take a few minutes to get used to, however the extra control that you receive is very beneficial.
