In this article, I’ll try and compare the two popular drop shipping tool for searching winning products – EcomHunt and Dropship Spy.
The internet has really leveled the business field these days! Gone are the days when starting a business use to take a fortune.
But these days you can practically start a global business with less than $100 and grow your income to thousands of dollars in less than few months. Thanks to the dropshipping model.
With the power of the internet, you can start your e-commerce business without investing in stock inventory, shipping or logistics and simply make your money.
All you simply need to do is sit by your house and hit some few buttons while you rake in lots of profits.
However, as simple as it sounds that still don’t guarantee how much you can really make. As dropshipping business outcome varies from business owners.
I’ve seen a dropshipping store on Shopify sold for 3million dollars and I have equally seen dropshipper close down his Shopify store because instead of making the intended profit he ended up paying recurring fees for Shopify.
Does that mean you can’t make it big in dropshipping? Capital NO! You can but you need plans and access to tools that can fast track your dropshipping business.
Dropshipping is yet to be saturated and hardly will it. So if you thinking of starting a dropshipping business you’re still on the right track to making a huge profit.
But like I said you need the right tool and accurate plans and budget.
Equally, to start making a quick dime you need tools like Ecomhunt and Dropship Spy but which one should you go for?
EcomHunt Vs DropShip Spy
Both of the tools are popular and equally easy to use. But in business every time and dollar counts. So if you really want to hit the ground running you’ll need to pick one or the other.
Hopefully, at the end of this article, you’ll understand what both tools bring to the table, what their shortcoming is and how you can utilize one to make your financial dream a reality.
Let’s dive in, Shall we?
EcomHunt Breakdown & Everything it has to Offer
EcomHunt like they said “a curation of the best new products, every day” is known for giving you hot and fast selling products.
They do the hard work then provides these products to their users on a daily basis. It’s actually not about the product but the product data which serve as a guide on how you can sell the product to the actual buyer that need them.
Ease of Use
EcomHunt is quite easy to use just like DropShip Spy. Every user will have access to the daily products and product data on their dashboard. However, free members will be limited. Inside the dashboard, you’ll see from the various products available and been release every day.
Once you see a product you like or your niche related product you’ll like to add to your store. Click on “show me the money” and it will bring out every related data pertaining to the product, from Facebook targeting to advert videos, links to suppliers and stores already selling the products etc.
EcomHunt basically has two plans the Free membership plan and the Pro plan. If you’re staying with the free membership plan, you will have access to 2 daily product with very limited data.
You won’t have access to the Facebook targeting, links to store already selling the products or suppliers. To get all product data, free members will have to upgrade to the Pro plan.
The Pro plan which of course is the second plan gives you access to everything Ecomhunt has to offer. From Facebook targeting to reviews, links, analytics etc.
The Pro Plan costs $29/month but you can get it for now at a discounted price of $20/month.
That’s all for EcomHunt but I believe Dropship Spy pricing is different from EcomHunt which will be highlighted subsequently.
Webinars & Tutorials
This is one of the cool features of EcomHunt and why it’s a bit different from Dropship Spy. They took time in putting their user through the whole processing by providing webinars and tutorials for them.
Since more and more people are trying to make more money and most of them have little or no knowledge about dropshipping. Having access to the EcomHunt tutorials and webinars will prove to be very helpful.
However, the downside to this is that most of the webinar and tutorial are only available for the pro members. Being a free member means your access to this will be limited.
But the value acquired is actually more, compared to the paid price. So it’s a win-win situation because it’s totally worth it.
AdHunter Chrome Extention
This tool by EcomHunt is far too amazing! The chrome extension is available for both free member and pro member.
What it does is that it allows you to find active competitive ads on Facebook while you can then use the template to re-run your Facebook ads. It shows you traffic amount, the targeted location of the ad and how long it has been running.
The chrome extension is absolutely free, but to use it, you need to be an active user of EcomHunt either pro or free member.
Additionally, besides the AdHunter extension, EcomHunt also provides Facebook ad information alongside their winning product every day.
This includes links to Facebook ads for the product, Facebook ad interest and targeting and few other information about the product.
Product Profits & Analytics
This feature will let you know how much you’ll be making on the product. It will show the profit margin how much you’ll be getting the product from AliExpress and the average price the product is being sold.
With the profit stats provided by EcomHunt, you will be able to plan your business, how much you should invest in Facebook ads and your potential return.
The product analytic on the other hand will let you know how well the product is doing generally. This in terms of social media and user experience.
In terms of social media you’ll be provided with the total numbers of shares, likes, comment the product is having.
Finally, as per user experience, you’ll be provided with reviews, ratings, votes, and total numbers of orders the product is having over the time.
Literary all the work is done. What users’ needs to do is pick the product of their choice and promote it.
Setbacks to EcomHunt
Like every other service, EcomHunt also has its shortcomings.
Free Membership: the free membership plan provides no values for the user to really gain access to their good stuff users need to upgrade to the Pro plan.
Generic Product: a vast majority of the products available on EcomHunt is generic which are not really in twined with niche store. Products available for niche store but they are limited in terms of numbers.Read Full Review
Breaking down DropShip Spy and what it has to offer
DropShip Spy just like EcomHunt is a tool for searching winning and hot products. It works by looking for products that are selling or getting much attention on social media.
These products are then made available to members or users of DropShip Spy on their account dashboard.
Ease of Use
When it comes to user experience and account interface, DropShip Spy has a cool design that makes everything easy and straightforward to use.
Upon login you’ll see from their various features which is hard to miss. From winning products to Facebook audience builder, instagram influencer research etc.
Even a newbie can easily move around the dashboard and understand everything Dropship Spy offers it members
Dropship Spy offers a free membership plan which is drastically limited. Other than the free membership plan their real plans includes, Basic, Premium and the Pro plan.
When it comes to Pricing Dropship Spy is actually costlier than EcomHunt. The pricing for Ecomhunt is just 2 plans the free and the Pro which cost $29/month but you can still get it at a discounted price of $20/month.
Dropship Spy is not just higher, this is because they really took their time providing many features to assist their members.
Take a look at the image below to see a comparison on all their plans.
The vast majority of their features is made available for the Pro plan which is going to cost you $35/month.
The return you’ll be going to get is totally going to worth it.
Facebook Audience Builder
This is one of the tools that attract me in DropShip Spy. It’s a tool for running a specific ad. Let’s say you are running a Facebook ad for a niche product and you have no idea of where to start from.
The Facebook Audience Builder tool will show you related interests to that particular product.
With tools like this, you need not worry even if you are just getting started with dropshipping and Facebook ads altogether. Inside the Audience builder, you will have access to the most recent Facebook targeting options. So you can easily choose your product niche.
Not alone will this save you cost of running untargeted Facebook ads that will end up wasting your money. It will also save time and allow you to do other things for your business.
Amazon Review Downloader
This tool allows you to download reviews of product from Amazon to your online store. With the review available your customer confident will increase toward the product and they might end up buying your products.
The essence of review cannot be overemphasized it’s very important for every online store. Using Dropship Spy, you can easily copy any product review link and download it for your online store.
Once the reviews are downloaded you can then upload them to your online store with just a click using the CSV file.
Product Profits and Analytics
On each of the product, you’ll be given the product description, the buy and sell price and of course the potential profits you will be making on the product.
Not just that, even the social media engagement of the product.
This will let you know how well the product is doing on social media. This includes the views, comments, and the total number of shares.
On the supplier side, you will see the total numbers of the product order, the feedback score, no of review, product rating and few other stats.
From here you’ll also know if the product is a having the ePacket option, free shipping or any other shipping methods available etc.
Finally, you will be given links to store selling the product, which includes Amazon and eBay. This, in particular, will help you see what they are charging for the products.
Dropship Spy Drawbacks
On the other side of things, not all is sunshine and roses when it comes DropShip Spy.
Generic Products: You might find Dropship spy not really helpful. This is if your online store is a really specified niche store. That is, you only deal with a particular set of products. You might find some of the product helpful but the amount of product you can get will be limited.
Facebook Targeting: the targeting don’t always work accurately, but I believe with the interest provided user can easily modify to even convert more.
Free Membership: this feature is very limited as such it adds no value and I believe the prices for the real plan can still be brought down.
And the Right tools Is…
As you can see they are practically similar in functionality and also what they offer. But they come in a bit different features.
If you are trying to conserve money and at same have access to more then I’ll suggest you go with EcomHunt.
If you have any prior experience with either of the platform please share them in the comment box.
