We will keep posting the newest method of dropshipping secret. Make sure to follow us.

Here are some questions answered.

I am 17 and want to invest my money. I am thinking of doing drop shipping. Can anyone help me?

Hi, I have been working as a dropshipper for years. If I were you would start with social media marketing. I mean posting reels, tiktok videos, shorts, studying keywords and hashtags, writing articles, etc, to make yourself ready. To start dropshipping is not hard, but making sales are always tough.

If you have a pet, create your pet's social media account, and keep posting and engaging with others. If you are a girl or buy, share your experience in school years or unboxing high school supplies etc. When you are ready to open a Paypal and credit card accounts can start your business right away. I am pretty sure you can be successful selling any product if you know the marketing.

What are the pros and cons of starting an ecommerce store for dropshipping?

Let me get straight to the point.


  • No inventory needed
  • No product testing time and money needed
  • There are so many software can build a website, import products
  • You can travel anywhere
  • You are the boss


  • Not easy to promote
  • Takes time and effort for a beginner
  • If you run the ads without knowing what you are doing will lose money a lot
  • Not much of a profit margin per product

Why am I doing the dropshipping business?

  1. I do drop ship to find the products that sell well on the market.
  2. Once I find the products, I run the ads to explode the search volume on Google and Social Media
  3. I use Alibaba to buy a bulk
  4. Post them on Amazon and Walmart (Main)
  5. This one is not dropshipping but much further. I make my brand and send products to their warehouses to sell

I am not doing the dropshipping for only selling all kinds of stuff; I do the product research myself.

What are the best dropshipping websites or suppliers?

Most products you see on Amazon are from China. I tried to import other products from other countries, but the price couldn't be beaten.

I use AliExpress for dropshipping because

  1. Lots of data (AliExpress poartals)
  2. Large product selections
  3. Chinese agents shorten my shipping time and check the quality

AliExpress is the best for selling on the website, not on platforms such as Amazon, eBay, and Walmart.

It was possible and easy to dropship from

  • Walmart, Costco, and others to Amazon
  • Amazon to eBay
  • etc.

But, this can't be a long-term business because these platforms will ban you as soon as they find you are doing the drop shipping.

If I restart my drop shipping besiness, I will do

  1. Get a simple and fast website (Not building myself)
  2. While preparing my business, I will look for a Chinese agent
  3. Find the products from AliExpress
  4. Import by using the software

You will find some Chinese suppliers in the USA, but they are very limited.

Some suppliers that sell and offer fast shipping for AliExpress products use Chinese agents. You will save more money if you have your own Chinese agent partner.

What are the best dropshipping suppliers for good quality/trendy clothing?

You can manually find the suppliers by looking at the seller's feedback and product reviews.

Here is a free way (slow and manual)

  • Google Trends
  • AliExpress portals

Here is a paid way (quicker)

  • Use software

Once you find the product and suppliers, make sure to get at least 1~2 products to check their shipping duration and quality for your business and promote your products.

How do I make money by drop shipping?

Well, this could be the hardest part of the business.

You can do two things

  1. Open social media accounts and post videos, images, and articles daily
  2. Running ads

You need to work on both organic traffic and paid traffic. This will take some time but will get sales for sure.

Here is an article about the dropshipping

How do I start a dropshipping business?

Let me be simple.

  1. Visit Amazon
  2. Find the best niche or products you want to sell
  3. Of course, check honest product reviews
  4. Visit AliExpress
  5. Find the similar or same product or niche
  6. Use software to create your website and import that product


Don't waste time creating your website. There are tons of dropshipping software that does everything for you. Keep your energy and money for promoting your website and products because that's the hardest part.

To create and find the products are only 30%,

Promoting and bringing the traffic is 70% important and harder.

There are no MUST-SOLD PRODUCTS. I tested so many products on the market; some sold well, and some are not.

If you sell the brand (Copywrited) products, patent products without their permission, illegal. You will end up getting sued. This is a BIG NONO.

I have sold only private label products for over 10 years all over the platform. I have my own brand name and company.

If you do it correctly, you will become a good business owner.

Is drop shipping worth the time and effort? Is it really profitable?

Yes and yes.

Here is what I do for my business

The easiest part: Find the niche and import

  • Use the dropshipping software
  • Find the best products for me to sell
  • Use the software to import products to my website
  • Order at least 1 product for testing

The hardest part: Promotion

  • Open all of the social media accounts
  • Use vidoes, images, and articles to promote your product
  • Keep doing it

For images, I use Canva

For videos, I use Camtasia and Premiere Pro

For articles, I work with a freelancer and full-time and part-time copywriters.

I am not a good writer, so I use AI content writing software lightly. Don't use it heavily since Google won't like the robot writing.

I use my own website for a better margin. Using Amazon, eBay, and Walmart are not easy to get lots of margin because

  • You may need to run the ads
  • You need to compete with other sellers

But, I use these platforms because it brings traffic much more than a brand new website.

Yes, Drop shipping is worth the time and effort.

Yes, it is profitable. So I have been doing this business for more than 10 years.

What is the AliExpress dropshipping center?

This could vary.

AliExpress itself is a Dropshipping center. You find the product and send the seller a note that you are doing the dropshipping. They will not include their company information and invoice in the package.

I use one of the dropshipping software.

It helps to find the best AliExpress dropshipping products, one click to import to your website or their platform, and sell.

Or, a Chinese agent.

I contact one of the agents in China. They

  • buy product
  • get the product
  • and ship to my customer

It's easy and faster, but they charge a fee per product.
