The whole online business and dropshipping business, in particular, are showing an incredible growth. But some people think different. Why? What fears do they really have?
1) COMPETITION. Do you really think that there is still any magical kind of business with no competition? The truth is that you can always find your own competitive niche and make a real profit from your dropshipping store by testing and using your own marketing strategies.
2) WHY DON’T PEOPLE BUY DIRECTLY ON ALIEXPRESS? Well, some of them simply don’t know about AliExpress or Amazon, others don’t trust these platforms or don’t have time to search for what they really want. Offer them their desired items and they will buy!
3) POOR QUALITY. 50 or even 80% of the items you have are made in China. The quality of products may differ from supplier to supplier, but you should carefully choose what to sell in your store. Check the feedback, pictures in the comments or even order some products for testing to make sure you offer good quality items in your dropshipping store.
4) SHIPPING TIME. Long delivery isn’t a problem for them if you have the right products in your store. They are ready to wait to get something special. You can always choose the ePacket shipping option on AliExpress for faster delivery to US or Canada.
People have been predicting the death of dropshipping since 2016. But we can see another tendency.
