    Like in all commerce, your supply chain is your most important business component. Your dropshipper is the supply chain, if they break, you break. So you gotta find a trustworthy partner with good reputation, or you may burn yourself badly.

    Like anything in the online world, you have to do your due diligence first if you want to be on the safe side.

    So yes, dropshipping is safe if done properly.

    You have to start with small orders just to test the reliability of the suppliers.

    find a supplier and test them out. Personally I don't like drop shipping that much, I prefer to send out the products my self.

    There is a dropshipping subforum here that might be better suited to answer your question. Plenty of good advice there.

    Dropshipping is safe, but you need to find really trusted suppliers which is the main problem.
