Is dropshipping business still alive?

I'm thinking to start drop shipping business – to open an online store with products from AliExpress. Now I'm choosing between Oberlo and AliDropship. But the more I'm reading about that type of business the more doubts I have. What do you think, is it worth trying in 2018?

Yes, the drop shipping business is still alive and will continue to grow.

If you are interested in starting a drop shipping business, here are a few things you need to know:

  1. Decide on who your target customers are and then look for products/items that will appeal to them. Products/items that might be a necessity for them, and products that are highly in demand and selling quite well.
  2. Create a presentable and functional e-commerce website for your store.
  3. Search for a reliable drop shipping supplier. This is important since they will be handling your products. You order the product from them and they ship it directly to your customer. Make sure you partner with the right supplier as this may cause your business to have a bad reputation.
  4. Marketing strategies are keys for you to acquire customers.
