So you want to start your own dropshipping business. However, you face a dilemma ‒ what types of products will you be selling?
The fact is, there are so many products out there in the market and the competition is fierce. A promising product can give you a great start, but what if you choose a bad one?

But before we go to that ‒
Quick intro about dropshipping
So how does drop shipping works? Dropshipping is a modern-day retail fulfillment method wherein a store doesn’t keep the products that it sells in stock. Instead, it fulfills a customer’s order from a third-party who ships the products directly to the customer.
A lot of businesses resort to this method because it solves most of their problems, one of which is to keep an inventory.
However, with it, comes several challenges as well, like ensuring that there would be enough stocks available to cater to the customer. Also, the prioritization of the third-party seller of the company’s clients over other drop shippers.
2. What Makes a Good Dropshipping Product?
All excellent dropshipping products share something in common. When you’re doing your research on potential dropshipping products, note the following criteria:
- The product must be compelling, unique and stands out.
- The product is difficult to find and buy elsewhere.
- The cost of the product allows for a healthy markup.
- Consumers find it hard to determine how much it costed you to buy the product.
- Consumers are more than happy to buy the product even with little research.
