Start using the Spocket app by installing it; once the app is installed, launch it and start navigating the app dashboard.

The navigation panel is located on the left side of the dashboard and their filtering options at the top of the page.
In the sidebar, we have:

Also, in the lower part of the sidebar, you can find the Help Center, a shortcut to your shop, and app settings. In case you need assistance from the Customer support, you can do that via live chat.
This app differs from the competitors with their supplier base. Most of the other apps intended for dropshipping are offering goods from Chinese suppliers, but with this app, you can sell goods from mostly US and EU suppliers. There are also a few suppliers from Australia and New Zealand if that is your target market.
Back to the filtering, you can find products by typing keywords in this field here, or you can filter all products by category, price, location, and supplier. Under this filter bar, you can find the suggested filter if you are out of ideas. Overall great and intuitive design.
Choose a category from the drop-down menu.
To filter from among the drop shoppers, click the "select by location" button to choose where you want to ship from. Next, put in the location you ship your product to.
In case you cannot find a supplier, you can just view all offers and choose from there.
You should note that you would have to take your own product images and create your own product description. However, you can find the product image and description on Spocket. You'll also see the product's shipping location, supplier's name, listing price, and retail price. Retail price is basically suggested a price; you can change it if you want.
Underpricing, you'll find the "add to import, Open Product variations, and Order Samples.
Having the ability to order Samples before actually adding the product to your shop is a great feature. Not only can you make quality control, but you can also take professional pictures before adding the product to your shop. You need to be at least on the Empire plan to see how it looks.
Finally, the last step is the shipping location, processing time is 1-2 business days, and if your customers are US based, they will need to wait for 1-3 business days, and they would pay 15$ for shipping this product and 10$ for every additional product in the same order, which may be confusing. Worldwide takes 15-30 business days, with the shipping cost a lot more expensive than the actual product. Once you found the product or products you want to sell in your store, just click on the green bar that says Add to import list. And when you're satisfied with your choice of products, you can import them to your Shopify store and start making money!
WHAT IS SPOCKET: EU & US DROPSHIPPING BY SPOCKET?Spocket offers dropshipping services with dropshipping suppliers from the US, EU, Canada, Australia, and even more. Shopify store owners enjoy access to dropshipping discounted products enjoying higher profits, real-time inventory update, and automated order processing using this app.
However, the suppliers' location in the Spocket app is limited as most of the suppliers are located in the US, and shipping outside the US is very pricey.
Spocket doesn't also include the costs of customs duties and taxes in the overall product cost as these costs vary across countries. This would have to be factored into your bottom line before selling the products.
