Profitable Drop Shipping Products LadyBossBlogger.comLaunching an e-commerce store supported by a money-making blog is a smart way for entrepreneurs who want to have greater control over their personal lives.

If you don’t want to make a big investment but still want to sell high-quality products and get the maximum amount of profit, drop shipping products to customers can be a great option.

With drop shipping, you don’t need to manage overhead costs of buying or maintaining a warehouse and the products are directly shipped to the customer – all you need is an online storefront to sell the manufacturer’s products.

We recommend using Shopify as your online store platform. 

In this article, we are going to discuss how to find drop shipping products that are popular across the globe.

5 Drop Shipping Products TO AVOID

After consulting dropshipping experts and helping countless merchants, we’ve put together 5 types of products you should not sell if you’re new to dropshipping.

1. Tight Jeans

You don’t want to sell products that:

  1. Will garner a lot of returns
  2. May not fit

Clothing is a GREAT thing to sell and is extremely popular, consider selling leggings or joggers instead or clothes with more wiggle room.

2. Trademarked Sneakers

If you don’t have a reseller license then you cannot legally sell trademarked sneakers. While these products sell REALLY WELL, if you’re operating without a license, you could get in deep legal trouble.

3. Black Bags

This may seem kind of random, but basically, these products are just TOO COMMON. Your products need to be unique and not something you can simply purchase anywhere.

4. Furniture

If you know what you’re doing then furniture can be EXTREMELY profitable, but if you’re just starting out it could be extremely costly. Selling furniture violates one of the most important rules for beginner dropshippers:

You should never dropship a product you can’t ship with ePacket shipping!

Consider selling lighter stuff such as accessories for furniture such as throw pillows or bedding.

5. Face Masks

You’re not allowed to advertise products that make health claims according to Facebook’s Advertising Policy. If you want to advertise your store effectively, you’re going to want to promote them on Facebook, so make sure the products you select play by Facebook’s rules.
