Today, I’ll be doing a Brandafy Review.
Having a Shopify store that converts visitors into customers is crucial for a dropshipping business.
If you’re new, building a Shopify store can take some time… never mind building one with a high conversion rate!
Brandafy claims to offer prebuilt Shopify stores that are designed to convert.
But… how good are their branded Shopify dropshipping stores?
Is Brandafy worth it?
Let’s find out in this Brandafy review!
What is Brandafy?
Brandafy offers “turnkey dropship websites that were designed by a team of experts.”
Brandafy will design a store for you, find winning products, and choose the top dropshipping suppliers.
They aim to take all of the hassle and stress away by helping you launch a dropshipping business in less than 24 hours.
Brandafy offers consultations, a dropshipping course called Ecom Upstart, and social media followers.
Let’s continue this Brandafy review by seeing how their service works.
How Does Brandafy Work?
Buying a custom store from Brandafy is quite simple. Once you get to the checkout, you’ll be asked a few things…
The first thing you need to decide on is the niche for your Shopify dropshipping store.
They offer pretty much every niche, with 14 niches total.
You also have an option to get a General Store if you’re still trying to find winning products.
If for some odd reason you want 14 eCommerce websites… you can buy them all and get 40% off.
After you decide on a niche, you’ll need to decide on a logo.
They offer a Standard Logo and Branded Logo. If you’re confused about the difference between the two, so am I.
But we’ll see what the standard logo looks like in a little…
You also need to choose the amount of best-selling products you want.
The default option is 20 best-selling products, or you can pay more money to get 40 or even 75 products.
It would be awesome if these are winning products we can sell in 2023… but we’ll see.
You can also get your store delivered in 24 hours instead of 72 hours by spending an extra $45.
Alright, let’s pull the trigger on one of these dropshipping stores.
Brandafy Review: Features
So… I bought a prebuilt dropshipping store from Brandafy (it got delivered in ~24 hours).
Besides being bombarded with affiliate and course offers… here’s what it was like.
Okay, now I know what they mean by Standard Logo.
This logo is OK, but there are no domains you can get for it (theoutlet.com and theoutletshop.com are unavailable).
The design of the store is fine. Nothing special, but it’s usable.
It also looks like they used a free Shopify theme.
Booster Theme is better, but this theme is good enough for a starter dropshipping store.
It looks like they added legal pages but did NOT add other pages required for a dropshipping store like Track Your Order or FAQ.
Not that adding legal pages is helpful… Shopify auto-generates them for you in 1 click.
What about those “Premium Apps” they said they would add to my store?
Thats the ONLY app they added…
I’ll talk more about this in a little, but let’s take a look at those “best-selling products”.
No joke, these products are awful.
It’s mostly jewelry, clothing, and basic furniture which is pretty much IMPOSSIBLE to sell… even for the most skilled marketers.
There also appears to be branded/trademarked products which is a big no-no for a dropshipping store.
Also, there is NO congruency for pricing…
Every single product on your dropshipping store should follow the same pricing scheme (everything ending in .95 or .99).
The descriptions and images they provide are pretty good, but this doesn’t matter as these products are unsellable.
One of the only products I could find on AliExpress was this pet dropshipping toy, which they priced at an absurd $65 lol.
Finding a winning product is the MOST important part for dropshipping stores.
If you’re a beginner, you might think 20 best-selling products are awesome, but…
Quality >>>>> Quantity
Remember, it only takes one product to change your life.
For each one of these “best selling products”, they provide a supplier for you.
If you were somehow able to get orders on this dropshipping store, fulfilling those orders would be pretty easy.
They recommend using Spocket as a supplier… but I disagree with this.
I’ve used many of the top dropshipping suppliers/fulfillment companies before, and Zendrop is the most reliable and trustworthy by far.
They also included some things for free like a quick start guide and a Facebook ads dropship blueprint.
The quick start guide is VERY short and basic… I think there are more affiliate offers here than tips.
The Facebook ads blueprint is a bit longer at 13 pages.
The info in here is quite basic as well, but it would probably be helpful for a complete beginner.
Unfortunately, there was nothing in here on TikTok ads.
They also include yet another offer for Cam Morale’s course Ecom Upstart.
There are many Brandafy alternatives, considering how many websites offer custom prebuilt Shopify dropshipping stores.
This list includes Dropship Launchpad, Adsellr, eComency, Ecommerceify, Dropbuild, AliDropship, eHustlr, StartStorez, Dropship Empire, and more… You can find the best prebuilt Shopify stores here if you’re interested.
Brandafy pricing is very straightforward.
For their Prebuilt Shopify store, it’s $17 for a new store or $37 if you use an existing store.

Brandafy Review: FAQ
Who is Cam Morales (Brandafy Founder)?
Cam Morales is the founder of Brandafy. According to his YouTube channel, Cam Morales has “been an entrepreneur since birth.” He dropped out of college and “currently earns seven figures online through affiliate marketing and e-commerce.” However, I have yet to see any actual proof of this.
How long does it take to get a prebuilt Shopify dropshipping store from Brandafy?
It will take 24 to 72 hours for you to receive your dropshipping store. If you want your custom store in 24 hours, you can pay an extra $45.
Do Brandafy’s turnkey dropship websites come with winning products?
Kind of. They populate your store with products, but the quality of these “winning products” is questionable at best. If you want actual winning products, you must use something else, like a spy tool.
Does Brandafy offer refunds?
No. They do not offer refunds for any purchase.
Does Brandafy have any positive reviews?
Yes. They have multiple reviews from customers who are happy with how their store looks. But that’s not important. What’s important is getting sales, which Brandafy shows no proof of…
Brandafy Review: Conclusion – Is It Worth It?
After being in the dropshipping trenches for 6+ years, it’s clear that only the best of the best should be used…
Overall, Brandafy’s prebuilt Shopify store was a HUGE disappointment.
I would be shocked if you could get a single sale with their stores.
It’s no surprise there are ZERO success stories on Brandafy’s website…
FINAL VERDICT: I do NOT recommend Brandafy.
