The product we’re going to look at in this review is called Drop Ship Lifestyle by Anton Kraly, which claims to give you all of the training and information necessary to run a drop shipping business online.

I am not an affiliate for Drop Ship Lifestyle. To keep this review as honest as possible even if you decide to purchase this product, we aren’t going to make a commission. Telling you the truth about what you’re spending your money on is what’s important to us.

So drop shipping is a way for you to sell tangible products that you don’t need to 1) purchase up front and 2) you don’t need to store.

Here are the broad strokes on how drop shipping works:

  1. A customer makes a purchase from your eCommerce store.
  2. You purchase that product from the supplier.
  3. The supplier ships that product to the customer.

Sounds pretty sweet doesn’t it?

We’ve already done reviews of similar products like DS Domination and Elite Dropshippers which are complete scams, so what makes this product any different?

Lots Of Video Guides And Walkthroughs

In Drop Ship Lifestyle, Anton Kraly goes through how to set up your eCommerce store, whether or not there’s a profitable market in your niche and how to get in contact with the suppliers.

drop ship lifestyle video training resources

Click to zoom

In every section of Drop Ship Lifestyle there are videos of Anton walking you through the topic and why it’s important. He uses a mixture of talking directly to you explaining why it’s important and slideshows where he elaborates on the slightly more complex topics.

Some of these videos are very long and you may get overwhelmed with some of the information so I would have liked to see shorter videos even if that meant there are more to watch. It would make some of the topics easier to digest but hey, you can’t please everyone.

With 7 modules to work through in the members’ area, it’s really nice that there are videos and not just pages of text to teach you the information Anton goes through.

The videos aren’t professionally done which is something that could be improved on in the future but it doesn’t distract from the information being given. Having said that, some continuity in the quality of the videos would have been nice considering the price of the product, but now I’m just being picky.

Very Nice Presentation Sir!

Once you log into the members area everything is very neatly laid out making it easy for you to navigate through the course.

You can see in the above image that all the modules are clearly marked. You can also see the 2 bonus modules you’ll receive along with a list of resources to help run your store.

Getting lost in the members’ area shouldn’t be an issue. The navigation menu for each of the modules is clearly located on the left-hand side of the screen and each of the sub-sections are found of at the bottom of each relevant module.

Also within each modules are some sub-sections as well. Anton has split up the video training in a couple bite size folders where you’ll get the text versions of what he goes through. So if you find it easier going through the material in a text format instead of video, you’re also catered to.

No Legal Battles in Your Imminent Future

Now we get to the good part with Drop Ship Lifestyle in comparison to DS Domination and Elite Dropshippers which we’ve previously reviewed.

The Drop Ship Lifestyle course DOESN’T violate Amazon’s terms! You’re not dealing with Amazon at all.

Drop ship lifestyle module 4 - finding suppliers

Click to zoom

DS Domination teaches you to purchase products off Amazon and sell them on places like eBay.

What? Purchasing a product for full retail price and reselling it? That’s not how drop shipping works.

In module 4, Anton goes through how you find suppliers for products in your niche, what you need to know before you try contact them and also how to contact them properly. This way you purchase products at cost price and sell them for whatever you want.

Note: Some suppliers have something called MRP, Minimal Resale Price, in their terms and conditions. This means you can’t sell the product any cheaper than that. So if you get involved in drop shipping, just keep your eyes peeled for terms like this.

The course also goes through how you’ll pay the supplier for their products once a customer has purchased something in your store and how they’ll ship the product to the customer. Everything is covered.

What’s the Price Tag for Drop Ship Lifestyle?

This is the biggest downfall I can see for this product.

Drop ship lifestyle price

Click to zoom

This is a very short course and for that price I would be expecting a bit more. For what you get, I personally would have priced this between $197 and $297.

This is the same price as the other products within this niche so I suppose it’s comparable, except Drop Ship Lifestyle isn’t a complete scam. Maybe to some people $497 for a legitimate product is good especially if it works, but I’d like to see this at a lower price given how short the course was overall.

Final Rating: C

I was ready to slam Drop Ship Lifestyle when I first started going through it after reviewing DS Domination and Elite Dropshippers but I was pleasantly surprised.

If you’re interested in setting up an eCommerce store then Drop Ship Lifestyle is a good option. Getting in contact with suppliers and setting up a store is a complicated and daunting task if it’s your first time. Anton goes though how to do all of this nicely.

To receive a better rating I would have liked to seen better quality videos and more importantly, a cheaper price (or more information).

I like this ds lifestyle co but not wealthy affiliate.
I can tell by You being here You are just promoting wealthy affiliate to get monthly income, wealthy affiliate is not for everyone and the edu in there is mostly from some other affiliates.
ds domination is scam and so is other.

This is the best course for the subject and concentrated too
previous students are earning over 5 fiqures a month, no joke

    Hey Wally, thanks for the comment. I don’t think Wealthy Affiliate is for everyone either, and I’m the first person to voice the product’s shortcomings for anyone reaching out to me considering it. DS Lifestyle is BY FAR the best drop shipping product we’ve reviewed, but it’s also much, much more expensive than most visitors to my site are looking for and can afford (hence why WA is recommended). It’s not a perfect program, but it’s far from a scam.

    Thanks again for stopping by, and best of luck with your drop shipping business!

Hey just read this post after watching a seminar given by Antwon. I figured it would be worth checking into before investing. I think it’s a great way to get started if you don’t know anything about drop shipping, but for anyone who has done it before it isn’t really necessary. I do like the theme, app and forum they have going on, but he is now asking around $1k-$2k for the membership fee and it’s way out too high for me to think about. If it was around 200-300 like you said it would be just right. I’ll still think about it, but for now I’m going to take his advice and try to figure it out on my own. I’ll probably check out one of your free courses while I’m here. Thanks for the great write-up. Take care!

    Yeah, Anton raised the price, but there is a reason for that, before, there used to be much less content, and Anton added much more to it, which is why Ian P. should make a review on the new Drop Ship Lifestyle. Anton also said in yesterday night’s live webinar, that he was in the process of building DropShip Lifestyle 4.0, a new version of it, with even more content. He also gave us an offer to get the course at a discount, instead of paying 1497$ for pro, you can get to pay 1297$ if you add “/go” after the normal website url, the discount will be there until monday (in Chiang Mai time I think, if you live in Eastern Time (New York or Montreal for example), you add 12 hours to get Chiang Mai time. Before I used to be skeptic about if Anton’s course is real or if it is a scam, but I found out by searching a lot and I found proof, that what Anton sells is real, he doesn’t rip you off. The price is not too high it is just as it should be, because the value of all that the website offers goes up to 9997$ and he makes us pay only 1497$. Like Anton said, back in the day, when he was learning stuff with online courses, he used to spend tons of cash on courses, and a lot of them didn’t have as much info as Anton provides. And this is the reason why, I will try to save up the money and work part time and buy Anton’s course this summer. During July and August, I will spend a lot of my days creating my first website and making money, and then, I will join Johnny F.D. and Anton Kraly at Chiang Mai at Punspace, it is going to be amazing.

      Trevor September 11, 2016

      Olivier, thanks for updating this comment thread with the new pricing. It’s been a while since I took the course and I’m writing a review of it myself now. I was going to link to this article when I remembered that I had commented on it a while back before I took the course. After hearing something good about the course from a member of the mastermind group I was a part of for 4-5 months, I went ahead and signed up. I’m really glad I did. I wasn’t making much money on my e-com store at the time because I was trying to be a superstore, selling everything under the sun, using drop ship sourcing companies that take a cut as my supplier like inventory source, and I wasn’t making any money with it. My goal was to create an automated e-com store, but instead, it was just an unprofitable business. After I took the course, I shut that store down and starting doing niche research. Using the methods of research Anton teaches, I found a few different profitable niches. I got involved in a few of them and one of them took off. The others make me a couple hundred a month on average, but one of the stores that sells $1000 + items is making me a few K every month now. I’m really happy with the way things have gone and want to let the author and anyone who reads this know that the course teaches you how to start, run and grow a REAL online business. It’s not like some courses that teach you how to use price arbitrage online. It teaches you how to use the drop ship business model to start your own online store instead of selling on ebay or amazon, get suppliers, post content, run ads, convert prospects, deliver the goods, and build the business to eventually have a 5 or 6 figure exit after a few years if you want to.

      5 stars from me! I hope this comment provides some value to the stopping scams community. The price tag on this product happens to be worth it. Not everything with a high price tag is worth it, but this one actually works, as long as you follow the steps and don’t skip anything out of laziness.

      Take care guys! -Trev

        I wanted to follow up on how things worked out. After going on a public podcast and spilling the beans about my high-ticket drop shipping store, I found about 10 new competitors after 30-60 days had thrown up crappy little websites, copy/pasted my product descriptions and blog posts, and called my suppliers, then started running ads. It was ridiculous. I tracked down most of them because they put who they were on their about page, and they were all part of the dsl facebook group. It just goes to show that Anton’s community is full of unethical internet entrepreneurs who have no creativity. even though this happened, i invested more in myself by paying coaches (not anton) to teach me what anton doesn’t in the course (yes, he doesn’t cover a lot of advanced topics, its sad!) and i was able to gain a big foothold in my niche industry the rest of that year. we did around 500k sales that year. i sold the site the following year and started a new one which is doing amazing now. i was so upset with Anton’s lack of advanced training and his crap community that i set out to create my own course as well at ecommerceparadise.com and i’m building an actual case study store through the making of the course and documenting the whole process. its something i had to do because anton only shows you fake demo sites that dont do real sales. so he talks a big game but then shows you fake results? who can trust someone like that. besides his basic training, he has OTHER people teach you in his course, and the google ads course sucks. i had to learn from the guys at easy ecommerce wins how to do google shopping ads right. i even hired the guy anton has teach the google ads course in dsl and they ruined my google ads. it was crazy… needless to say i wouldn’t recommend anyone sign up for his overpriced course… if you want a real-world case study documentary-style course, with super in-depth lessons not just overview fluff, check out my course instead. cheers -Trevor

      Hi Olivier, did you sign up for Anton’s course? I have watched quite a few of his YouTube videos an have been on a couple of his webinars. I really like what he teaches.

      I am also researching selling on Amazon. This is my first time looking at online businesses. I want to make a decision before the end of March.

      I would so appreciate your input if you have started with Anton.

      Thank you so much.

        Hi Jennifer! My husband and I have been selling on Amazon for about 4 years now….I can say pretty confidently that you can be up and running with Amazon fairly quickly and also making money much quicker. The downside is, first, you will have to manage inventory and shipments to Amazon as an FBA Seller which means you will need to either be out doing a lot of shopping (retail arbitrage) or wholesale orders that get delivered to your door in several boxes or sometimes even pallets. Second, Amazon is super strict with their rules and guidelines, you will be expected to learn and know a lot fairly quickly, but thankfully there are a lot of FB Groups that are super helpful. We have to plan ahead to be gone on vacations or out of town if we have orders being delivered for processing to Amazon. Third, there are a lot of gated categories in Amazon and they can be tricky to get ungated. Amazon has allowed me to quit my corporate job after the first 2 years of having an FBA business part time in the evenings. Now on another note regarding DSL, I have bought Anton’s course and paid $497 for the upgrade to 5.0, but I know just from watching and reading the 4.0 content that this is a much better way to make *MORE money… I know it won’t be overnight and it’s going to be a lot of hard work, but I like a challenge. Plus if anything happens with Amazon, we will have a backup plan. I am getting tired of having to deal with products and shipments, but maybe I’m just spoiled. Good luck : )

I was just enrolled in a 10 Module course that is free and you can pay $47 to get all 10 videos immediately and access to his drop ship directory, or you have to wait and get one video a day. After emailing Anton, he now has courses that are $1k-1300, so I was surprised at the numbers in this article. It’s pricey and the elements in the big package I don’t need so I asked him if he sells individual section to choose from or if he has installments. We’ll see…

I heard a successful marketer say something that’s very profound…

“It doesn’t matter what YOU are willing to pay for a product, but what the MASSES are willing to pay for it!”

Thus, in your world, the ‘value’ you associate with Anton’s product is only between $197 & $297, whereas the ‘masses’ are willing to pay higher!

Anyone looking to start a business online needs to understand you should have several streams of income so you don’t wake-up to find you’ve no business left because the one you gave up your 9-5 job for is now dissolved and you are S.O.L.

I started with several and have one that is the flagship of my business portfolio. This business is FREE, you never have to spend to earn, and teaches people how to start an online e-commerce business using nothing but the Internet and a device to conduct your business on the Internet. They have been in business for 18 years and have been in the BBB since January of 2000. Currently they are rated “A” on the A+ to F scale. They also are in more than 190 countries worldwide. This is the anchor and around it I also work other businesses.

All of this to say, my Dad told me you should never have to pay someone for a job. If you have to buy things to do the job that is not the same as paying someone for a job. Everything I saw concerning your post tells me this is not paying for a job but rather paying for training to do the job the best way possible. That is something I would recommend to anyone who has tried and failed for sure.

Great stuff, thank you for your post and you willingness to hear from others about the subject matter.

To you success! 🙂

Cheers,

Todd L. Garner MDiv

I am in the process of starting to sell on line. I agree the process of setting up the first time for Amazon is daunting. I have heard Anton’s course recommended over and over again here in Thailand. I’ve never heard anyone even imply that he is a scammer. He is generally held as a trusted expert around here. The only issue most people have with his course is the price. I would have like to have taken it, but it is out of my price range. He does have a free short course and there is a lot of good information in that.

Thanks for the review. It is nice to see an unbiased review that agrees with all the accolades I’ve been hearing abut his course.

I fell for the Drop Ship Lifestyle advertisements and upsell features for the 4.0 version. I think your grade of C is right on…if not a little generous…

1. The video courses, research methods and basic principles are very helpful but over priced. GRADE: B

2. The coaching package is worthless- the “coaches” rarely have anything helpful to say and you can get the same help from Google Adwords specialists or by trusting your own research. In fact I think the help from these people hurt me more than benefited my store. GRADE: F

3. The Shopify theme and “apps” are very basic or still in beta and have been that way since April 2016 with no delivery date in sight. In fact the theme lacks alot in style which may hurt you when developing relationships with new suppliers. DSL APPS are duplicates of free Shopify apps and felt like a rip off once I learned more about the Shopify world. GRADE: F (plus I’m ticked about this)

I would not pay for anything above and beyond the basic package again- also if you are not comfortable lying to your customers and suppliers then the course is not for you.

Dear Luke,

I so much appreciate what your doing here for all of us !! I am desperate, now leaving my General Contracting business of 24 years because of a serious disease call Morgellians. I am not able to walk, run and climb or hammer as i could just a year ago. My Son Is 15 years old and Had planned on leaving him a awesome business in construction. How ever I do feel that I can tech him this at his age and leave him something to give back to the FOOD FOR THE POOR, which I believe strongly upon.
I have been hoping to find the right man or women that can teach this business to me without any time waisted. Because time is something I do not have much of anymore. I have got from benching hundreds of pounds to now can not even do one pushup. All within 3 years !
I do not know if I will hear back from you but thought it was worth the try? Please, If you know of a better trainer I can get my hands on besides ANTON, could you shoot me a name of someone with maybe more compassion for the beginner. If you already feel this is who you would go with then so be it… if not bring them on please.
I hope and pray I hear back from you. I will be investing my last savings if I purchase his course. This is honestly my last hope for income. I am broke for the first time since before I went into the Marine Corps in 1977. Making money has never been a hard deal for me since in grade school. I have always been a hard worker. It truly is humbling to be in this position.

My Very Best Regards to You Luke

Thank you for your review of Dropship Lifestyle. I have looked at some of their videos on YouTube. I have also watched a webinar by Anik Singal, endorsed by Robert Kiyosaki, and his email marketing program. I have watched Austin Hilton & Jeremy Sandow’s webinar on Amazon selling. Oh, yes. I have also listened and watched Jim Cockrum’s Proven Amazon Course. I like something in all of them. My checklist would include a Money Back Guarantee, endorsed by BBB would be bonus, and reading reviews. I will have to find out if there are more charges after you sign up. Of course, training program would have to resonate with me. Wish me luck !!!!

Would love to hear input you may have on these businesses.
