You can make your life a lot easier on yourself if you choose the right dropshipping products to sell and reduce customer complaints and returns substantially while doing this kind of business.
These products are easily found on Aliexpress
1️⃣ Rhinestone Emoji
We’re going to jump right into the first dropshipping products on this list.
It’s a rhinestone emoji pendant and it has 100 emoji on it.
There’s nothing wrong with this kind of product on the face of it but where we have concerns is actually in the reviews.
When filtering the negative review on Aliexpress, there are various complain not only low quality but not receive at all.
You have to remember that you don’t hold any inventory when doing dropshipping. Therefore, if your customer makes a sale, you order from your supplier and then you just trust that your supplier ships that product to your customer.
The vast majority of times it works without any problems and when it doesn’t work usually, people on Aliexpress are very quick to point that out.
Obviously, other customers don’t fall into the same trap. You don’t want to be caught in the middle of customers who feel like you’re scamming them.
That’s why when doing product research, you should look at star reviews to make sure you’re selling a product that is in the clear.
2️⃣ Cycling Helmet
The next dropshipping product that we suggest you do not sell is a cycling helmet.
Of course, we’re not saying that you shouldn’t wear cycling helmets. However, we wouldn’t sell and here our opinion.
When you’re selling a product that’s meant to protect somebody’s life and especially their head and spine.
What if that product doesn’t work?
You surely get in trouble.
You only sell safety equipment unless you could be held liable.
But we don’t mean that cycling is not a good niche. In fact, there are a lot of successful drop shippers since cycling is not cheap.
You can consider cycling glasses, for example.
To sum up, cycling YES but cycling safety equipment NO.
3️⃣ Bag Phone Cover
You would be really tempted to sell this waterproof pouch for your mobile phone.
On Aliexpress, it has over 2,500 orders and an average review rating of 4.8. It seems to sound great!
However, this kind of dropshipping products is similar to the one with the helmet that we just talked about.
It promises to protect something really valuable which means that if this product doesn’t work, you’re gonna be on the line for damaging someone’s cell phone.
You should explore the cell phone accessories niche but just be careful that you’re not promising certain cell phone accessories that will protect the cell phone, especially if you’re dunking it in water.
We feel like this product would make someone reckless and want to test it.
If they didn’t like the results, they would come complaining to you.
4️⃣ The Fidgets Burner The Ab Stimulator
We still don’t really know what this dropshipping product is.
We are supposed that it promises to help you burn ad fat with electronic pulses or something like that.
This product may get sales, however, we recommend that you stay away from it, especially if you’re a beginner.
If you’re starting to drop ship what you really want to do is learn a lot about Facebook ads because once you get Facebook ads precisely, you can scale them easily and start to make money in your sleep.
As a result, we’re in this right the tempting thing to do if you’re advertising this product, you should show a before and after photo when using it.
Here’s the problem!
Facebook doesn’t let you publish before and after photos in ads.
Plus, you can’t guarantee that someone will lose weight if they use this product. Once again, you could get in trouble if someone consumed something or attaches something to their body.
Now drones are trending products for sure. We’ll be sure a lot of people will get drones over the holidays so that they can take those glamorous aerial shots of their vacation.
The problem is that selling this type of dropshipping products is complicated and a lot of things go wrong.
You can price them high and make a lot of margins. Nevertheless, it requires time and energy in customer relations.
You’re going to need to be in your inbox every day answering customer questions, responding to customers’ problem and dealing with returns.
There is no big deal when you’re selling products that are between 10 and 25 dollars. But it will be a big problem if you’re selling an expensive product.
We suggest that you stay away from complicated electronic equipment like drones.
A bonus tip for you is that instead of selling drones, you can sell drone accessories in case you know a lot about drones.
6️⃣ Diet Tea
The next dropshipping product to avoid selling in your store is Diet Tea
We know this is another popular product. In the New Year, people are going to flock to deities but whether you’re a beginner drop shipper or pro one.
We would avoid any product that people ingest. If someone has an allergic reaction and you don’t want that on your conscience.
If you know a lot of people are going to be drinking diet teas, don’t sell them deities but tea accessories, for example, mug warmers.
The tea accessories would be the perfect thing to target people who like diet tea brands while safety.
You have to make sure that every product you sell is totally harmless.
7️⃣ Marvel Hoodie
You can’t sell this product legally because of copyright.
Some strict online retail platform like Shopify or Amazon, they even shut down your store. At worst, you could be facing big fines for selling this kind of product.
How to solve this issue?
You may notice some home brands in other words things that look branded but they aren’t brands.
You recognize usually those brands that are owned by the supplier themselves. It means that it’s totally fine if you drop ship those products.
