    Of course they do. In my opinion dropshipping is a slowly dying market. There is too much competition and people think they can satisfy customers even though shipping times are 20 days+.

    Building an own brand for a specific niche and bringing constant value to the customer will be a more advanced business concept.

    Dropshipping is not dying just through the fact that there are to.many products on ebay. Besides if those chinese company who you dropship from.sell on ebay too and succesfully why shouldnt you? Sure less sales as them but enough to make more than working at the 7eleven.
    You got.same shipping times as all chinese shippers anyway...

    I don't because I buy products in bulk. So buyers get them 1-2 days after purchase from me.

    Look, this is what I meant:

    1. Dropshipping -> no investment needed, anyone can do it, very high competition, very long shipping times, very low possibilities to customize, usually bad packaging, customers tend to be mad in the end
    2. Bulk Selling -> higher investments needed, therefore sorts a lot of the competition out already, lower prices because of discounts and the possibility to ship by sea, customizing and branding options, a MUCH better overall buyer experience

    Buyer needs move to unique buying experiences and very specific niche stores. They can get basically anything they need from Amazon already. Don't get me wrong, I don't say dropshipping is bad in general, I've been doing it as well. But it is WAY harder to make good and long term profits with it then what is commonly claimed :)

    How you can compete with your supplier , they sell on the same price as in Aliexpress , it's just good to create your own store .
