How to find the best niches for dropshipping (2020)

“How do I find the right Niche?” is a common question among drop shippers, and with good reason.  Choosing the right niche can mean the difference between a successful retail business and wasted effort. As such, it is a vital consideration. In this post, you’ll learn how to identify profitable niches for your dropshipping business that get you high margins and stable, year-round demand.

Get Ideas!

The first step to identifying profitable dropshipping niches is to find ideas, and it’s not something you can quickly do over a cup of coffee. You must set aside a considerable amount of time aside for best results.

To find ideas, study yourself and those around you. Record the items you have recently bought over the internet and consult friends and family so you can know what they have purchased. Doing so should give you some ideas for items you can dropship.

Besides that, here are a few other things you can do:

  • Ask yourself what do people like to do while they’re on vacation.
  • Study your friends’ and family’s hobbies?
  • What’s the priciest item closest to you?
  • How about your family and friends? What are the most expensive items they have in their houses?

Take note of everything, even if it appears absurd. Then take that list and do the following to ensure the niches you’ve identified are stable and profitable.

Study your competitors

Study other dropshipping brands to identify products on your list that are over-saturated.

  • You may use google search for your study.
  • Just type the product name and hit enter. The results page will show competitors who offer the same product. You may also perform an image search by using your product’s image to evaluate how many dropshipping stores provide the same product.
  • Look at the study the product’s demand on AliExpress. If it has more than 1000 orders, it is likely saturated.
  • Type the product name into Facebook search, then view the video results. If you get more than 10 videos with large view counts, the product may be saturated.

Evaluate customer loyalty

Avoid products or niches that are monopolized by national brand(s). National brands often enjoy considerable customer loyalty, and their customers will purchase their products regardless of convenience and price. In most cases, the customers are not interested in trying other brands, so they won’t provide reliable demand for your product.

Target expensive items

The higher the cost of your dropshipping products, the greater your profit margins. The traditional approach to dropshipping requires selling vast quantities of low-priced items, and it achieves low-profit margins. While it can be useful, it comes with several disadvantages. On the other hand, selling only a few items of considerable value will grant you a bigger advertising budget. Furthermore, since you’ll be shipping high-quality, you will achieve higher customer lifetime value.

Expensive items also have more significant profit margins. For instance, if you sell a camping net at USD 300 and your net margin is 25%, you’ll make USD 75 off each sale. In contrast, if you’re selling low priced items, like phone jackets at an average price of USD 15 and 30% profit margin, you’ll only get USD 4.5 from each sale.

Consider product Weight

You’ll want to dropship items that are both expensive and light-weight.  Heavy items cost more to ship, and this may affect your profits if you’re using shipping plans like flat rate shipping. Furthermore, even if you’re using a different technique, your shoppers need to have an accurate shipping cost estimate before they complete an order, and any inconsistencies at this point will cost you money.

Avoid Returns

Don’t dropship products with style and sizing preferences, as they have remarkably high return rates. Sizing and fit are one of the most common reasons customers return orders to e-commerce retailers.

Another problem with such items is the tendency for customers to “bracket their items.”

One of the strategies customers use to ensure they buy the right sizes for apparel is to purchase several sizes of the same item, try it on at home, keep what fits, and then return what doesn’t. In a recent study, nearly 50% of U.S. shoppers said they bracket their purchases. This is an increase from 2017 and 2018 when about 40% of consumers said they bracketed at least some of their online purchases.

Avoid seasonal products

Selling products with stable demand throughout the year helps ensure you have a steady sales volume.

Let’s take Bluetooth headphones, for example. The demand for this product will likely be constant throughout the year (with a probable peak in December due to the holidays). On the other hand, with items like air conditioners, likely, you won’t have any sales in the winter.

The idea is to avoid the types of products that don’t sell much at some points in the year. -the ideal product will ensure you attain stable turnover, which is crucial for anticipating stock changes.

The only seasonality you should accept is the peak sales that come with the end-of-year holiday period

Places to find in-demand products and profitable niches


eBay is one of the best tools you can use to check if items have sustainable demand. (just don’t copy eBay’s pricing plan -it’s too low).  It may not be as popular as it once was, with the emergence of Alibaba and Amazon, but it is still an excellent place to find profitable market segments.

  • On eBay, study products in niches you know are expensive.
  • As you explore the different categories on eBay, change your search results to display completed listings.
  • If a completed listing appears in red, the item did not sell. If its green, it means the item sold

Your focus should be on the products shown in green and look for completed listings only for that particular product.


Amazon is the world’s largest retailer, and they sell just about every product ever manufactured. This makes it one of the most ideal places to find in-demand products

Here’s how to find profitable niches using Amazon

  • Click the “all” tab to the left of the main search bar. It will display a list of niches or categories
  • Select a specific category, it could be a random choice or something that interests you
  • Leave the search box blank and select go
  • A fresh page will appear, and on the left, there will be a long list of subcategories or “sub-niches.”
  • Choose a subcategory, and it will take you deeper into a specific sub-niche
  • You have now found a specific sub-niche, but it’s still possible to go further if you wish.
  • Amazon is particularly useful for finding ultra-specific niches and products that have high demand.
  • An added benefit is that you can select the best sellers from the menu at the top of the page just below the search box to see which items are selling best.

With these strategies, you have all you need to find stable, profitable niches for your dropshipping brand. It may take some effort, but you’ll get there.

Five Great Tips for Selling Dropship Products on eBay

Growing entrepreneurs have been using eBay as a backbone to getting their businesses off the ground for quite some time although it is only recently become incredibly popular. The eBay site allows you to get a quick turnaround on your products, without having to set up your own website or do a lot of marketing and branding. In this article we will give you 5 simple tips which have proven to help tremendously in achieving great success on eBay.

Please read the simple tips described below. They are very simple and straight forward and will certainly help you gain a good status on eBay fairly quickly.

1) End Your Auction on Sunday Evening

The end of the weekend is the time for people to be at home relaxing before their busy work week starts. By ending your auction on Sunday night, you allow the people lounging at home to see your products and have a fair chance at buying them. Keep time zones in mind and set your close time to accommodate the whole country.

2) Use Up-Close Pictures that You Have Taken Yourself

When it comes to selling things online, a picture is definitely worth a thousand words (or dollars hopefully). Using stock photos or sample pictures from other websites can seem too retail. If you take a nice, clean picture of the actual product you are selling, buyers are more likely to bid on it. Providing more than just 1 product image will also make your auction stand out and show buyers that you have good intentions in selling your products.

Please make sure that you upload images that are very clear and of a minimum size of 500px either on the width or on the height. This will ensure that your images comply to the new eBay image policy. Non compliance of this policy may result in having your auction removed.

3) Keep it Friendly and Upbeat

Be approachable in your selling style. If you love what you do and have faith in your product, it shows! Your customers will keep coming back for more products if you treat them like genuine people instead of customers. Positive feedback from customers will attract new buyers as well so make it an absolute goal to achieve the highest positive feedback as possible.

4) Accept Returns

It might be a little bit of a pain to deal with returns and unsatisfied customers. But if you do it without argue, odds are the customer will try to buy from you again. If you make it hassle free and easy for the buyer, it should just be a small hiccup and future buying should not be an issue.

5) Have Fun

The whole concept of eBay selling is unique and it should not be taken too seriously. Yes, you are trying to run a business and sell your products but if customers think you are too professional and businesslike, it may turn them off from buying. Be social and make it known that you are there to establish relationships with buyers and introduce new products to them as often as you can.

When it comes to dropshipping, selling on eBay is certainly one of the best places to get started.

If you also need a great source of dropship products I urge you to go to You will find products from tons of dropshippers loaded into one single portal. It’s very convenient and you are guaranteed the lowest wholesale prices.

Wholesale2b Complies with eBay New Image Sizing Policy

No buyer wants to shop in the dark. One of the greatest online bidding sites, eBay understands customers want to see what they are buying online. The new polices for listing products on eBay calls for good quality pictures, which help the seller optimize sells through the site’s Best Match default sort order for search results. Wholesale2b is working with their suppliers to seize this opportunity for speedier sales success through eBay image policy compliance.

Best Match is designed to increase sales and build eBay’s reputation through better experiences for buyers. In order to comply with the new image policy all listings must have a picture of the item for sale. The compliance rules call for a picture to have 500 pixels on the longest side, borders and added text are no longer allowed with the exception of watermarks for attribution,  and stock photos aren’t allowed. Catalog images are still usable as long as these are not as the primary photo for a non-new item for sale. The exceptions to these rules are movies, music, books, and video games. Video game consoles must still follow the new rules.

As you know not all suppliers provide images greater than 500px however wholesale2b is working towards having this addressed one supplier at a time.  You will now see a new column on our USA SUPPLIER page that will indicate if the images meet the new eBay image policy.  Over time you will see more and more of our dropship product images converted to meet this new minimum size requirement.

If the new eBay image policy rules aren’t followed by the seller then they will be unable to upload the picture. This is also true for those revising or re-listing dropship products or items posted earlier. This will mean the item won’t be  in Best Match, and buyers aren’t likely to see it. A new eBay Photo Center that sellers can visit offers tips on taking pictures buyers are attracted to, and how best to showcase your item for sale.

Other criteria helpful to working with the Best Match system includes remembering to list the item description and to list item specifics such as product codes, the item’s brand, part numbers, and other information which will identify products uniquely.

Currently over 85% of Wholesale2B items and dropship products comply with the new rules, but naturally the goal is to convert all images for compliance. Through a complete compliance with eBay image policy it’s possible to reduce frustration on the part of the buyer and increase sales on dropship products or other items. As more suppliers discover the ease of reaching customers and buyers using eBay’s Best Match system the higher the rankings and visits on these posts will be, and the better the sales for everyone connected with Wholesale2B.
