How to create a Dropship listing in Chip

First of all, you need to know these important details to create a listing and start selling dropship products:

  • You must have a Chip custom domain. If you don't have one yet, just go to Domains in your Chip dashboard and choose your domain name to start the short and easy process. Learn more about How to Create a Custom Domain.
  • You can create multiple listings for a single product; however, the information in each listing will be the same. 
  • Chip follows a standard protocol for choosing the best shipping option to ensure we have a tracking code for every item we process:
    1. Our first choice is AliExpress standard shipping.
    2. If that’s not available, then we choose the most affordable option with a tracking code.
    3. If that’s not available, then we simply go with the most affordable option.

As you add more products to your catalog, you’ll see them listed on the main Dropship page in the dashboard.

Now, you’re ready to list your newly added products in your own custom domain. Follow these five simple steps to see your listings live on your store:

  1. Add a listing. On the Product details page, click on Add Listing located on the right side of the screen.
  2. Choose the custom domain you want to add the listing to
  3. Add the product page URL
  4. Choose a storefront to add this listing 
  5. Click on Apply

And that’s it! To view your listing, click on the URL that appears under Listings.

How to activate/deactivate variants and listings

Sometimes, you need to deactivate a variant —a version of a product— or the whole listing because of several reasons, the most common being that it is temporarily out of stock. Here’s how to do it:

  • To deactivate or reactivate a variant:
    • Scroll down on the Product Details page to see the Variants section.
    • Click on the toggle next to the variant you want to activate or deactivate. Blue means it is active, gray means it’s inactive.
    • Use the bulk editor to edit several variants at once. 
    • You can review your changes by selecting and viewing one of your active listings.  
  • To deactivate or reactivate a listing: 
    • Click on the toggle that shows below the Listing URL. To deactivate a listing, keep it gray; to activate it, toggle to blue. 
    • You can check your listing by clicking on the URL of the listing you updated; it should show a “Page not found” sign when deactivated. 
    • Keep in mind that if a listing is active with all variants deactivated, the user will be able to see the product, but they won’t be able to purchase it.  

Now that you know all the basics, it’s time to maximize your profit by adding some cool dropship products to your store!
