Shopify side hustle could make you $50K before the holidays

This Yuletide side hustle will reportedly make Christmas come early for one’s wallet.

Tired of blowing through money during the holiday season? Not to fear, an enterprising TikToker has reportedly discovered an ingenious way to make $50,000 between now and Christmas — by reselling items on Shopify, as seen in this TikTok clip with over 45,000 views.

“Here’s how to make $50,000 before Christmas,” teases life hack coach Alice Liu who reportedly became a six-figure entrepreneur as a 20-year-old college student via various side hustles. She now regularly posts alleged money-making short-cuts to her over 540,000 TikTok followers.

This latest hack banks on the fact that “tons of people are looking for gifts to buy their” significant others, opening the door for online entrepreneurs to “sell these romantic and cute items.” “The catch is you have to start now,” the serial side hustler explains.

To cash in on Christmas’ giving spirit, per the clip, start by going to the Auto-DS website, a tool that claims to have assisted in more than $200 million in sales annually.

They specialize in dropshipping, “an order fulfillment method where a business doesn’t keep the products it sells in stock,” per E-commerce site Shopify.com.

“Instead, the seller purchases inventory as needed from a third party—usually a wholesaler or manufacturer—to fulfill orders,” they write. “The biggest difference between dropshipping and the standard retail model is that the selling merchant doesn’t stock or own inventory—they act as the middleman.”

For just $1, prospective hawkers can sign up for Auto-DS two-week trial, where upon they should start adding products to their Shopify store as soon as possible. Ideal items — which can be found by searching #tiktokmademebuyit, per Liu — sell for around three times what they bought them for.

For example, Liu bought Enchanted Galaxy Rose for $19, which she then resold for $59 on Shopify.

This can result in major windfalls if items are bought in bulk. “If you sell over 5,000 of these items, you can easily profit over $50,000 before Christmas,” declared Liu.

Sellers can enhance their sales by advertising the items on TikTok, making sure to appeal to audiences in a particular niche — similar to how Liu markets side hustles on her platform. She also recommends “running ads” and even “retargeting people through email/SMSmarketing.”

As with all get-rich-quick schemes, there are a few caveats. For one, users have to pay a monthly fee to use the service, entailing $29 for basic, $79 for Shopify and $299 for advanced. They also charge a fee of between 2 and 3% per transaction for each product sold depending on the plan.

Despite the hurdles, Liu advises followers not to shy away from the Shopify side hustle. “Ninety-nine percent of people only consume content and don’t take action, so make sure you take action if you’re the one percent,” the influencer urged.

Finding a lucrative side hustle has been essential for many in light of the current inflation crisis, which saw consumer prices jump by a wallet-sapping 8.2% year-over-year last month.

In another ingenious Xmas life hack, TikTokers have been raking up to $30,000 per month by uploading virtual fireplaces to YouTube for families who don’t have the real thing.
