What Is Dropshipping and Why Should You Dropship?

best dropshipping products to sell in Summer 2017Dropshipping is a business model which is ideal for ecommerce entrepreneurs, no matter how experienced you are. The dropshipping business model involves entrepreneurs shipping their products directly from their suppliers warehouses to their customers doors. This means that you’ll never need to worry about managing your store’s inventory, or spending valuable funds on storage space for your products when you’re running a dropshipping store.

For first-time entrepreneurs and ecommerce veterans alike, dropshipping is a great way to run a business. You’ll find that a dropshipping business is straightforward to manage, as you can ship your products to your customers with just a few clicks, and you can manage your store no matter where you are in the world.

You’ll also find that there’s little upfront investment when you’re setting up your own dropshipping store. You’ll never be tied down to the products that you choose to sell when you open your store, like you would if you were running a traditional ecommerce business. In fact, with a dropshipping business you’ll be able to switch products in a matter of minutes, which means you’ll be free to experiment with your inventory until you find products which your customers love.

  • Ovegho Okome

    That’s Andy there for his consistency in going extra mile to surprise his Oberlo subscribers. Well done for looking far!

  • Denz Balr

    The best feeling to have is when you have a plan in mind and someone like andrew recommends you to do that.

  • Great article! I think I will add a few of these items to my store. I like to read short and quick straight to the point articles! 🙂

  • Stephanie Rose

    What are some businesses who use Oberlo and/or Aliexpress to drop ship products? I would like to see their webpage and how they list products.

  • nadia2664

    i have a problem with aliexpress, I have done business before with them and their products are cheap and a lot of people demand a refund, if you find anything else than aliexpress let me know please. Thanks

  • Ruta Ganusauskaite

    Hi there Nadia!

    Ruta here from Oberlo 😉

    You can also import products from Oberlo Supply Marketplace. The suppliers in this system are carefully selected, therefore you shouldn’t encounter problems when ordering from them.

    Check it out: https://app.oberlo.com/verified-suppliers

  • nadia2664

    It not ordering them it is the cheapness of the products, the products break easily, people want refunds, alibaba express isn’t a very good wholesaler, I don’t know why people still buy this

  • Samiah Davis

    I have been selling peel off mask for so long??‍♀️

  • Stephanie Rose

    Who do you use as your supplier(s)?

  • Joseph Rajendran

    Hey guys, if someone could advice me about the process involved in shipping the product to the buyer. I understand the shipping is done directly by the supplier once the order is placed in the store. we have to enter some sort of contract with the supplier? Is the entire process automated, could someone give me clarity involved in shipping process. TIA.

  • Hi Joseph.

    not sure if you got answer from someone. if you was using Oberlo to add product to your store, after you have a sale or more you can go to Oberlo app on your store and clock on order. you will see the high lighted tab to place oder with Aliexpress. just click that and it will take you to Aliexpress website and all your customer shipping details will be there automatically. better you just double check and make sure before place the order. and simply pay and place your order.
    you can transfer your tracking details to your store backward after you see shipping details on Aliexpress.
    hope this information helpful

    thanks.

  • Joseph

    Thank you, your information was very helpful.

  • Oliver Sim

    How’s your sale potential going?

  • Ruta Ganusauskaite

    If the product is of a bad quality, the users will leave a bad review. Or the product won’t have any reviews at all.

    So you should always check the feedback of people who have already bought the product. There’s loads of good quality products on AliExpress and dropshippers are making a fortune selling them.

    If you don’t go for the lowest price and the product has positive reviews, there’s a big chance you’ll like the product too 🙂 Give it a try!

  • nadia2664

    ok thank, also I wanted to know anything better than alibaba express

  • nadia2664

    ok thanks I will try them out when I have a product in mind, I have two friends that have instagram and they have over both have over 10,000 followers, right now I just need a kick in the butt to start a store and I don’t have a product yet

  • nadia2664

    I wouldn’t buy peel off masks over oberlo, need to be someone professional in cosmetics, I know some people that but masks over wish store, and got burned badly

  • Stacey

    This is an okay idea, but the margins aren’t there, which leads me to believe Oberlo has introduced themselves as a middle man there. I’m not going to sell a camera case, for example that is listed on the verifed store for 20 bucks, when I see the same product selling for 10 on aliexpress directly, and try to resell it for $30, when I would have sold it for $20 just like the listing. Or maybe it’s just me?

  • Margarita

    I have a question about selling specific products. I’ve done some research on what products sell well on Amazon and have looked up any other competitors on Amazon that sell the same product that im looking at on Aliexpress. If I sell the same product as someone else on Amazon what would that mean for me?

  • Roger

    What about pricing? Do I just pick a price and add it to my item? How do I know what kind of mark-up there is to the consumer?

  • Lala

    Has anyone got any great drop shipping suppliers they would like to share, other than the ones that have been mentioned?? I’m on the lookout, I want to luanch in time for Christmas.

  • Lala

    Roger, Did anyone answer your question?
