    Would fidget spinners be a good niche, I know a lot of people use them now. So if I dropship them could that be profitable?

    So, if kids are using it often, its a good niche. So fidget spinners would be an excellent choice.

    My guess would be that fidget spinners are going to be a short lived fad. I mean, there isn't much you can do with them so in about 12 months time lots of people will have one in the back of a drawer that they don't even remember buying.

    how would I fix it?
    But till then, I could dropship them, then once they become out of the fad, just wait till the next fad and keep on going like that.

    Agreed, makes perfect sense. My point is you need to be prepared to diversify.

    Honestly, no theyre not.

    I tried it before and its a no go. I had an instagram account and all that I got was a load of annoying kids hounding me for free shit.

    The demand is there, but not one of them have CCs.

    They will give you every excuse and reason under the sun as to why they should get a free one.

    Personally I would say avoid.

    I mean. You could build out the drop shipping infrastructure to promote a product for a short span of time... or you could spend your time building up an authority drop shipping business that will sustain you.

    Think about this: WHY would people buy a fidget spinner at yours if they can buy it anywhere? It's a market with enough competitors now... why would you do it? My opinion is to find a green niche. Put your energy in the long term and you will make much more profit than this little hype.

    They are being sold here for as little as 1.50.

    You have missed the boat!

    Good rule of thumb for something inexpensive like that is maybe buy 10 of them since they are cheap and do facebook ads, make them free with $9.99 shipping. Test it and see if you can sell them. If not, no big loss. In fact try and find maybe ten different low cost items and buy small quantities to test.

    I think you're a bit too late mate and just as I was curious what the fuzz was all about I bought one yesterday in a store in my town, I really dont get what the hype is? I fidget a lot but this thing isn't giving me any satisfaction, don't think it will reach the end of the year populair wise.

    Yeah you're too late. They're everywhere now.

    Crazy admin ladies on our local facebook buy and sell groups are already banning them from sale because didn't you know their snowflake child is the one true heir to the fidget spinner destiny.

    So next thing to start trending, start selling.
    I was thinking of buying in stock, and selling on ebay, a site that has people with money.

    So, trends are not a good thing to dropshop? And, normal items are better?


    I have actually never seen a fidget spinner being sold at a retail location. Would rc planes work?

    I can buy them 1.50 here and sell them for more on ebay plausibly.

    RC PLANES
    I was planning on using ebay as my platform, not my own website.
    Ads aint cheap

    They were selling like fire.
    Ive seen them on cruise ships. My local buy and sell group has this one person selling them 10 dollars each
