Is Dropshipping really profitable?
 

 
I'm thinking of starting a dropshipping site. I need to find me a side hustle. My regular job is fine but I want to step up and eventually buy a house. You need big bread for that.

I've been looking around the internet trying to find out whether you can really make decent money through dropshipping. Some people say yes but don't quit your day job. Others claim they're making 20 racks in a day. Others say don't bother the market is oversaturated. Further still others claim just find the right niche and you'll make bank.

Give it to me straight. Can I be successful in dropshipping without spending too much money(only want to spend a few hundred in ads)?

What are your experiences with dropshipping?

It’s subjective. Most people that I know that have done it or are doing it are just barely making a profit. However if you find something that sells good that’s what you focus on and expand. You just gotta work it and find what works for you.

For the most part, dropshipping is bullsh*t. You can get lucky with some items here and there but it's pretty random.

Here are my issues with dropshipping:

1. If you were the only one to have a specific item, you could make a k*lling. But if you're using a dropshipper that other people know about, they'll just sell the same items and now you got a competitor that will undercut you. If you want to sell on eBay for example, people are constantly looking at other sellers and trying to find out where they get their items.

2. Very tough to keep track of inventory. If you're knowledgeable in programming (or willing to learn how to automate some stuff), you can create something that gives you live inventory from your supplier. But even your supplier's numbers can be off. So if you sell an item that you can't get, your customers will be pissed when you tell them you have to cancel.

3. All of those people on Youtube that claim they have the secrets to dropshipping don't even make money on dropshipping themselves. They sell courses/books/videos convincing you that they know the secrets, and the gullible people will pay them for it. They also get paid by the views on Youtube. Honestly, MOST of the big Youtubers put out bullsh*t content knowing they'll get good ad Revenue.

it can be if you play at a high level of custom or hard to get products but for most people its not because they're dropshipping from aliexpress or something that anyone can do. so the market get saturated with bullsh*t.

as a general rule, the easier it is the harder it is to make money.
