Metaphysics is often concerned with co-creating our lives with The Source, God, and the Universe. This co-creating process is sometimes called the Law of Attraction, or manifesting.
Metaphysical niches can also be called New Age, or spiritual. You may find one or more New Age/metaphysical stores depending on where you live.
There are many products that fall within the metaphysical category. These items are just a few of the many that fall under the metaphysical category. I will also discuss how you can make a profit by creating your own eCommerce store.
Defining Your Audience
I am a Law of Attraction practitioner and a frequent reader of metaphysical books, so I certainly fit this category.
This audience might also practice the Law of Attraction. They may visit psychics / clairvoyants, use healing crystals and read metaphysical books.
This niche might include people who consider themselves spiritual. People who are interested in metaphysics often experience spiritual growth.
After the release of The Secret, the film that sparked interest in metaphysics took root.
It was online that I first saw it and realized that although I knew about the Law of Attraction, I didn’t know it had a name. A few Oprah episodes featured a handful of Law of Attraction coaches and teachers. This made them famous.
These experts include:
- Michael Beckwith
- James Arthur Ray
- Lisa Nichols
- Jack Canfield
- Rhonda Byrne
Other metaphysical teachers are also popular, including Mike Dooley and John Assaraf. David Cameron Gikandi’s A Happy Pocket Full Of Money is one of my favorite metaphysical books.
Metaphysics plays an important role because the Law of Attraction deals with our thoughts becoming objects.
Simply put, your intention (thoughts about what you want), visualize it and meditate on it. It will manifest according to the LOA.
Faith and belief in the Source, God, Universe or any other higher power is essential for manifesting. Anything is possible, from a rubber ducky to your dream job.
There is a huge metaphysical niche. Many people are well-versed with the Law of Attraction, and other areas of metaphysics. They have made full-time incomes.
What kind of metaphysical products can you sell?
Because the metaphysical niche crosses into other areas, there are many products that fit this category.
Many people in this niche might also be interested in yoga. Cross-selling yoga related products is possible. Many people are interested in astrology, reiki and life coaching.
These areas offer you a wide range of products to sell. Here’s a list to help you choose the right items:
- Healing crystals
- Essential oils
- Chakra balancing jewelry
- Meditation pillows
- Singing bowls
- Wind chimes
- Salt lamps
- Beads, charms, bracelets, etc.
- Home decor
These physical goods can be sold together with other services such as energy healing, teaching meditation and numerology.
How to Start Selling Metaphysical Products Online
It is easy to set up your own metaphysical shop. It’s gone are the days when you had to hunt for wholesale suppliers and pay high-end shopping cart software.
The method I am going to share here does not require you to purchase inventory upfront. This is not a get-rich-quick scam.
This is an actual and legitimate online business model that people around the globe are using to make part-time or full-time incomes.
This online business model is called dropshipping and I will explain how it works and how you can open your own store quickly and easily with some of the best dropshipping software available.
How an eCommerce business works
A typical online store often involves buying inventory from a wholesale supplier and storing that inventory in a warehouse, storage facility, or even your own home.
You pack the product and send it to the customer after someone purchases it from your store. Selling online can be expensive.
Your cash is tied to products that you may or might not sell. You must pay for the products and freight, as well as storage fees, if inventory is not stored in your home.
Many people are prevented from opening an eCommerce store by this method. They cannot afford to buy a lot of inventory to resell.
How Dropshipping Works
Dropshipping has been around for many years, but it has gained popularity thanks to today’s software. Dropshippers can earn full-time incomes through their stores.
Dropshipping can be a cost-effective and risk-free way to get into eCommerce. Dropshipping doesn’t require that you purchase products, but the customer orders them directly from your store.
You first have to locate dropshipping suppliers (which I’ll explain where to find them below). Then, you place the products your suppliers sell into your store.
You place a customer’s order for a product in your store by placing it with your dropshipping provider. You enter the shipping information of your customer during checkout.
Dropshipping suppliers ship the item directly to you for your customer. Your profit is the difference between the price you charged your customer and the price the supplier charged.
The product is shipped to you without your involvement. Dropshipping suppliers handle all shipping and handling.
Locating Dropshipping Suppliers
As I said, no longer are you required to search the internet for dropshipping companies.
There are wholesale / dropshipping supplier directories that have done all of the research for you.
I also recommend sourcing products from AliExpress.
AliExpress, a major online retailer, has merchants primarily located in China. Merchants are also located in the United States and other countries.
AliExpress’s unique selling process allows you to sell any product immediately. AliExpress offers a majority of their products at very low prices. There are no registration fees or requirements and you can start selling them immediately.
These are just a few of the many great benefits to sourcing items through AliExpress.
- 200,000 exporters
- Some suppliers ship from the U.S.
- More than 100 million items
- There are no entry or participation fees
- Profit margins are unlimited
- There are no limits to the number of products that you can sell
- Worked with individuals and companies
- Most items eligible for free shipping
- Ships to more than 200 countries around the world
- Track your online shipping
- There are many shipping options available
- Buyer protection system that includes a full money-back guarantee
AliExpress offers a wide range of metaphysical products. You can search for healing crystals and incense as well as jewelry, singing bowls and singing bowls.
Many of these items are available at twice or triple the retail price.
Set up your automated dropshipping store
Now that you are better informed about dropshipping and how to source products easily, let’s talk about how to open your store.
We have already covered AliExpress sourcing products. I recommend dropshipping software, which automates the sourcing and sale of AliExpress products.
This software is called AliDropship. This plugin works with WooCommerce as well as WordPress dropshipping.
It turns a WordPress website into an AliExpress dropshipping company.
If you are already familiar with using WordPress and installing plugins, you can set up your store yourself using the AliDropship plugin.
If you are able to bundle AliDropship’s hosting, I recommend it. The hosting is already configured to support the plugin.
The plugin will work on most commercial web hosts. Make sure the ionCube loading is enabled with your web host. I’ve written about my experience with web hosting for the AliDropship plugin.
Dropshipping store custom made
You have two options: let AliDropship build your store or hire someone to do it for you.
They offer custom dropshipping store creation. Every package comes with a personal manager to take care of all details.
If you are looking to save time while having your store built by professionals who are experienced in dropshipping, this option is the best.
AliDropship has the best thing about it. There are no recurring fees, regardless of whether you create your store or have it built by AliDropship.
What happens after your store is built?
You will need to promote your shop and the products you sell, just like any other business.
Advertising your business can be done using both paid and free methods. Paid marketing is a popular method of promoting dropshippers.
Dropshipping success stories I have read most often involve advertising with Facebook ads, Instagram shoutouts (buying ad spaces from Instagram influencers) and Google shopping ads.
It is a good idea to create a marketing budget. I highly recommend reading the marketing tips section on the AliDropship blog.
You can get tons of actionable and free advice to promote your dropshipping business.
You can create accounts on any or all social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and others, for free.
If you choose to have your store built using AliDropship, you can use their Social Rabbit plugin to auto-run and auto-promote your store on the most popular social networks.
My Final Thoughts on Selling Metaphysical Products Online
The metaphysical niche has a large audience and is growing daily. You can find some Law of Attraction teachers online.
These videos often have thousands of subscribers, and they receive tons of comments from users.
