3 Dropshipping Niches You Should Avoid at all Costs

By

Dropshipping can be a great way to make money from home, and one of the simplest ways to start an online business. However, too many people make the mistake of picking saturated niches or don’t understand how problematic some products can be. Finding a great niche is the hardest part of dropshipping, and without research, you might either end up overwhelmed or unable to make sales. Let’s take a look at some of the dropshipping niches you should avoid at all costs.

General Clothing

Clothing is one of the most common niches beginners decide to start with, but it is ironically one of the toughest ones for inexperienced sellers. For one, clothing is very personal and is thus much more prone to returns. You then have to deal with conflicting size charts. For instance, if you decide to buy from a supplier in Asia, chances are the clothes will run smaller, so there’s always a chance for mix-ups.

However, if you want to still be involved in fashion, a better option would be to go with accessories. There are much fewer chances of returns there since what you see is pretty much what you get. This is also a niche that would be perfect if you wanted to use a quality  e-commerce platform. Small orders might mean smaller profit per orders, but it also means less hassle with returns. Also, it’s not uncommon for people to buy multiple accessories at once.

Watches

Watches is another niche that beginners seem to flock to for some reason, but it’s not as profitable as many may think and the market is extremely saturated. It’s not uncommon for even successful stores to sell 1 or 2 watches per day.

One of the main issues with watches is the low quality of watches you’ll find on sites like Aliexpress. You can’t expect much from a $5 watch in terms of quality, and you’ll have trouble selling a no name watch for over a hundred dollars if you decide to go for more expensive items. However, if you’re going to be selling watches, then we suggest you go with quality. At least you’ll be able to get positive reviews and maybe some word of mouth publicity.

General Lifestyle Products

When we speak about general lifestyle products, we’re talking about things such as cleaning accessories or basic kitchen items. You want to find niches that stand out with eye-catching items. Most people would rather go out and buy these items than buy them online. The only exception is if you manage to find really original items like a cool salt and pepper shaker or condiment dispenser. However, we advise against basing your whole dropshipping business around that niche.

Dropshipping can be a great way to earn an extra or full-time income from home. However, it’s essential that you research niches first as you might not be aware of some of their pitfalls and have a completely false idea of demand.
