Today you’re going to learn exactly how to start your drop shipping business in 4 steps.

In fact:

Top 20 successful drop shippers from our competition use the same process.


So in this post we’ll show the precise plan of starting drop shipping business even for complete dummies.

Let’s get started.

Step #1. Choose a successful niche and earn from $6k+ per month

Your first step is to find a niche.

We have recently published a post about 60 best dropshipping niches (in 2019) in our blog.

Fantastic, but all successful drop shipping stores from our competition use absolutely the same niches!


For example:

John made $7k at “wireless devices” niche in one of his stores.


For another example:

Kate archived $6k per month at “smartwatch” niche.


So, they take the niches from our list and launch the profitable store.

Therefore, to start your drop shipping business you don’t have to create a business plan and make a complex niche research.

Just take your favorite niche idea from our list.

Step #2. Find the reliable suppliers on AliExpress

Now that you choose a niche, it’s time to find a supplier.

According to industry research, 84% of online sellers find that establishing a dropship supplier or wholesaler relationship is the #1 roadblock to starting a dropshipping business.

We surveyed the top 20 of our customers about their suppliers.

How much suppliers do the successful dropshipper need?

Maybe 10 or 50?


Only 2-3 providers.

So just follow the same strategy and choose 2-3 suppliers on AliExpress with good feedbacks.

And that’s it!
