Lots of people use affiliate marketing for that reason. Affiliate seems less of a headache than dropshipping really.Even better if you use dropshipping to deeply learn the needs of your target audience and then DESIGN a new product now that you have that insider knowledge.
Yes all the dropshipping talk made me think of POD. Which can be a good way to go when you're starting out.But...if you find the products and fulfil them from the same country - it's VERY lucrative. I know POD sellers making millions and they never touch the product.
Ugh I'm in a woodworking group on FB. Some members there ordered from another member, and the group figured out they were dropshipping from Ali. The admin locked the thread before it got ugly.Who is this MJ guy? Must of went broke dropshipping alixpress products
I saw a video on youtube with a guy infront of a lamborghini outside a mansion saying dropshipping made him millions...
?You already answered your own question. no control, low entry.Do you guys reckon that an imported product from China sold on Amazon FBA is as bad as dropshipping? Im currently importing (and soon selling) a product, consisting of a combination of two generic products to form a "set", with my own logo.
But I feel this model may be a "just a bit better than dropshipping" as barrier to entry is low and control is minimal. And therefore may not be something to be in for the long haul.
The best way seems to create an own patented product, if one is to go the physical product route.
What do you guys think?
Btw, I now realize this post may come off as me trying to hijack the thread in a self centered way. It's not my intention, I mainly posted the message because I thought the FBA business model is very similar to dropshipping.
