This is not realistic OP ,first of all you are way too young and being broke is not the way to start dropshipping,free traffic sources are shit and you need to invest in paid ads.
I suggest you first start with aff marketing since even young people can be succesfull with that.

I have very bad experience with drop shopping though I have done it throughout Facebook ads. But still who ever doing it successfully they're making good profit. So good luck mate! I hope you'll find good strategy to work on it :)

In fact, in 2021, very few make a profit with dropshipping.

I observe my 'competitors' in FB Ads, the vast majority are scammers 'selling' $300 products for $29.99 and delivering $0.45 Chinese earrings to get a tracking code...there is a flood of scammers among the biggest FB ads, CPMs are sky high and consequently ROAS is very low.

I also heard that some European countries are adding taxes of up to +20% on purchases on sites like AliExpress and this will make things even more expensive.

For those who are more professional and have other traffic sources + private agents, maybe they are exceptions...but most who still depend on FB Ads are in trouble

it's not different than before, the market is always limited and fair.

The money you can take from it depends on your business and the value provided.

More people than ever purchase online. More people than ever have a website and run ads also.

At the end nothing is saturated if you build a real brand around it. But of course 90% of businesses fail after 5 years, it was like that before and will continue like that in future.

Forget about dropshipping. Don't listen to gurus or wannabe Youtubers. Instead learn some real skills like SEO or web or mobile app development.

I assume you are between 20 and 25 years old (young). If you are broke, then for now do not think of internet marketing income. First get a full-time job and along with that full-time job, do a real (brick & mortar) side hustle. Yes, that means you will be working 14 to 16 hours a day .... but, wait .... While you are doing your full-time job and side hustle, SAVE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN for a few months, then after that stop your side hustle, but continue your full-time job and with the money saved while you are in your full-time job, try internet marketing, if you find success, scale it up and finally quit your full-time job and go full-time into internet marketing. Yes, sounds good in theory, right .... But, MANY people have done it and so can you. All the best.

You need money to make money, first of all. Second - money is attracted to those who know how to manage it properly. Just like a girl, money is attracted to men who can take a good care of her.

Judging by the fact that you don't have money and want to start a real business, your financial decisions must be at a very low level, you don't have any type of money management system in your daily life, and you don't have a job because you're most likely too lazy to do a good search in order to find one.

But if you've got any questions not related to "how can I start a business without money", feel free to ask them here publicly, I'll answer.

If you're quite young (under 17) and can't legally have a job yet. Focus on learning things and educating yourself. There are so many resources online you can use to learn so much, so when you do have some money available to start a business or do something else, you'll be ready to start immediately and you might have a lot more success than those who didn't read as much as you did. Also don't forget to have fun and just be a kid, you still have so much time to think about businesses when you grow up.

You'd need money to dropship thats just it. If you don't have the money yet. You can use this time to learn and research about dropshipping. You could even take a free dropshipping course on vivibosslink.com website.

Find large marketplaces to sell on where you get paid immediately. Meaning you sign up as a seller on the site and list products. Once someone buys one of your products and pays, you also get paid minus their fees, immediately. Look for marketplaces where customers are required to pay with Paypal or you are at least paid very quickly regardless of whatever payment system they use.

Getting paid quickly is important when you're broke because you have to use their money to buy the products to send to the buyer. But if they don't pay you quickly, your shipping will be too slow and you'll get kicked off the site.

I respectfully disagree about wasting your time reading or learning anything without a specific goal or purpose. Reading and learning for business purposes is good but without a goal is mostly useless. For example, if you have a business idea that requires deep technical knowledge, then study and master that topic WHILE running the business because it doesn't take that long to learn almost anything.

You're 17, you're not a kid anymore. Our grandparents were getting married and having children when they were 13 and the majority of them probably achieve more in their lifetimes than the current generation will. There are lots of people in their 20's and 30's who still live with their parents for various reasons mostly associated with parents who are too supportive.

I believe young people would benefit from imitating the lives of older generations because younger people these days have too many choices which creates all kinds of problems. I don't think being a student with a lot of free time to think is particularly beneficial. I think it's better to start a business and then all of your reading, learning and thinking can be purpose driven.

Money is made by doing, not reading or learning unless you're going to make a living as a professional. Doctor, engineer, lawyer, fireman, teacher, EMT, etc.

I might be overly sensitive to this because I come from a family filled with over educated relatives who attended the top schools but have zero ambition, even though they have amazingly loving parents with strong work ethic and every reason to work hard even if it's just to make your mother worry less about your future.
