    I'm doing rebills and that obv causes payment processors to get scared, so I'm wondering what are some low risk businesses or how I can "find" and define one. :)

    DUDE! That's too low risk no payment processor will accept it! :D

    I was thinking of something like dropshipping shitty earrings or crap like that, or even selling own bulk shirts or whatever.

    Anyone else? :p

    Any brick and mortar business that has online presence. Anything that sells on a physical store that can be sold online, where you have a deal with the physical store locally. Shirts, watches, shoes, groceries, electronics and so on as long as it's local and you have a local address.

    Selling tee shirts. Even better if you have design friends that want to road trip around festivals. Even better if you have a local printing company that doesn't want you to use an online company... the more physical you get the better the ROI. If you're going high quantity over ROI, obv stay digital.

    i think you mean "low investment" when you say "low risk" ... in that case, affiliate marketing.

    there's also selling books on amazon.

    Not really, by low-risk I mean businesses or categories where chargebacks are low. Usually rebills are considered high risk.

    So what @Sherbert Hoover said seems to be the lowest risk business "category". Though, I wouldn't mind trying what @bartosimpsonio said :D

    Shopify + facebooks ads is a big one.

    Any kind of dropshipping really with ebay/amz/aliexpress.

    A local business in my town has started buying clothes in bulk (£7 per 1kg) and selling them on spock/depop style apps. Makes a fair bit.
