SMC is a safe way to learn the dropshipping business. The only drawback is that they carry mainly knicknack items and there are a LOT of people that sell SMC stuff. Many people sell these items at flea markets, home parties, kiosks, work, out of the trunk of their car etc. and many make a living as middlemen selling it in quantities to other resellers.
I am not promoting SMC other than they are good at fuflilling their obligations and beginners can't LOSE any money getting their feet wet this way!
