    Not sure if this is the right place to ask but,

    thinking about starting an Ecommerce site using DHgate's cheaper items/potential dropshipping however I'm not sure what type of site is most viable.

    Option 1: Niche specific site - Site that has one specific need with various products fulfilling that need.
    Ex: https://www.elementiumlighter.com/

    Option 2: Generalized site - Site that has various products fulfilling more than one need.
    Ex: https://shop.coolmaterial.com/

    Obviously, each has their own pros and cons however I'd like to hear other peoples opinion on what would work, especially as a new site.

    Is it even still viable to compete/create an ecommerce site using DHGate, Aliexpress, Alibaba etc?
