May I ask what products you are interested in selling so we can look for a good dropshipper for you? That's one disadvantage of dropshipping aside from the fact that the profit margin is not as good as when you buy wholesale. If you find a good niche market, then, I believe that it is possible to succeed with dropshipping.
I'd suggest selling stuff from around the house to start. This is a good way of finding a good niche market. By selling stuff from home, you will know what products sell well and quick and with a high end bid (if you're selling on eBay). Not to mention the experience that you will get is priceless.
If you're selling on eBay, you can use eBayâ€™s completed listings to find products with high success rates.
When youâ€™ve found a product that sells well, you need to note the average selling price. This is important as the wholesale price needs to be at least 20% lower than the retail price in order for you to make money.
