Top 5 Best Product Types To Dropship 2019


Ecommerce is an unusual type of market. The methods used to profit off of it keep reinventing themselves. We’re now at the point that you no longer need to create or even own the products you ‘sell’. This sounds too good to be true but it is very much a reality in the form of ‘dropshipping‘. By signing up with dropshipping sites, you can sell their products yourself and keep a slice of the profits. By never having to deal with the actual production and storage of a product, the amount of time and money saved makes this an attractive option for any online seller. So what products should you concentrate on if you are interesting in involving yourself in dropshipping? Which are proven to sell the best? Continue reading and you can find out:

  1. Sports/Fitness Clothing
  2. iPhone Accessories
  3. Men’s Grooming
  4. Vaping Products
  5. Pet Accessories

Before we get into the specific products, there are a couple of ideal product features that need to be discussed. These are the features that determine the selling success of a dropshipping product. They will decide if you will become a dropshipper or a flopshipper.

For example, when it comes to pricing, you need to encourage people to buy as much of a product as possible. This is because it will add up to a decent profit for you as you make money off a percentage on each product sold. Therefore, the more products sold=more money in your pocket. In order to encourage multiple purchases, the price of each individual item should always be universally affordable. Only products of the very highest quality should be highly priced.

According to ecomdashthe weight of the product should also be taken into account. Although you are not responsible for the delivery process, the customer will be unaware of this. Any mistakes or delays in the delivery process will result in damage to your direct credibility, not the dropshipper. Therefore, to minimise the risk of an unsatisfactory delivery process, try and keep your products as small/light as possible. This will make the full process smoother as lighter products (therefore parcels) are easier for delivery agencies to handle and shift from location to location. However, if the product is too light and fragile, the same type of problem can occur. The product could potentially be broken in the delivery process. If this problem keeps recurring then it will result in damage to your credibility.
