    It is a good money maker, trust me. Rad some articles from AliDropship blog (many step-by-step guides and real-life expirience) and see how it works: https://alidropship.com/aliexpress-dropshipping-story-alex-zero-6000-four-months/. When I was hesitating about everything, I started to read a lot and I found this source very good.

    I am currently working as a VA for a client who is dropshipping and he is making $2000 every day. So, I can tell you that yes you can definitely make money out of this business.
    However, it will never be as easy as following few steps.
    It needs a lot of research while selecting a product, then managing customer queries and then making sure that you are targeting right set of people on Facebook Ads. This list does not end here and there are many more to dos in it.
    Read Read and Read, try to push in some money and play around with it. You will definitely get there eventually.

    Hello,

    Drop shipping can be a good way to make money, but you have to realize you are counting on someone else to do things correctly! Is the shipment the right item, is it addressed correctly, is it packaged properly, is it in good shape, etc.! The best thing to do is run a trial. Buy the item and have it shipped to a friend, neighbor or relative, so you can check these essentials yourself! Believe me, it will save you a lot of grief in the long run.

    Good luck!

    WSL

    There's alot of money to be made in dropshipping however it's not going to be easy. But you wouldn't know unless you try it. Just go for it and learn by doing.

    One thing I DONT like on this forum is when a person is seeking knowledge and the FEW who choose to actually help and give accurate advice get somewhat overshadowed by the pessimistic sore some users have become, after they have achieved passive income. Remember that one day you were once in his position! Seeking Knowledge
    If you don't have anything good to contribute to a thread DON'T comment.

    That should be an official rule IMO.

    I would say 'It depends on u'. Because you should understand that it is way of doing your business. You can make a good profit or can fail. But I know many people who succeed in dropshipping. I think you should read some reviews or success stories (you can find some at alidropship.com - section 'success stories').

    Dropshipping is kinda hard, let's be honest. You need to come up with a product, that is popular, yet there is a space for you to make a profit on it. Once you found something, you can start making money.

    Absolitely agree. Dropshipping like any other business takes time and money. You should be passionate about it (or product you dropship). You should know many things - how to create a webstore (but that's not a big deal actually, you can buy custom store), or you need to know how to promote your store (and invest in that).

    That's true indeed. But probably the most important part is to find a good source of free products, without the source the whole business would not work.

    IMO, since so many people want to copy you if you find the right product, it's just as important nowadays to have some sort of barrier to entry.
