Discover the mistakes to be avoided in a dropshipping business

Dropshipping is one of the best ways to start a successful online business today.

This type of activity makes it possible to start a business with only a computer, an internet connection and a small investment.

Ok, it all sounds easy… but you know, everyone makes mistakes and dropshippers are no exception.

But if you learn from other people’s mistakes and are prepared, you can reduce them and have a nice advantage over your competitors.

Here are the main mistakes you can make in your dropshipping business:

  1. Having too many dropshipping suppliers
  2. Relying on the wrong dropshipping suppliers
  3. Not setting prices correctly
  4. Not indicating clearly shipping times and costs
  5. Underestimating the after-sales services
  6. Ignoring product reviews
  7. Not having a return policy
  1. Having too many dropshipping suppliers

Relying on different dropshipping suppliers might seem logical, in order to have more products or more quantities of the same product available, but this actually means having contacts with too many people, wasting time and not being able to establish a true collaboration with any of them.

  1. Relying on the wrong dropshipping suppliers

If you already are a fashion dropshipper or you want to start dropshipping, of course you will need to find trustworthy dropshipping suppliers, able to find the products that are right for you and your business.

  1. Not setting prices correctly

It is necessary to set up adequate prices in order to have margins on the sale of dropshipping products and earn, making your ecommerce dropshipping business sustainable.

  1. Not indicating clearly shipping times and costs

Be clear about shipping times and costs. Always try to be transparent with your customers on these aspects, so that they have all the necessary information and that does not lead to negative reviews.

Be clear about shipping times and costs. In the case of dropshipping you will not be managing this part directly, it is therefore important to find all the necessary information from your dropshipping supplier and try to always be transparent with your customers on these aspects, so that they have all the necessary information and that does not lead to negative reviews.

  1. Underestimating the after-sales services

After-sales services are key to getting customers who have already bought from you to come back to your dropshipping store and buy your products again!

For example, you could provide them with tracking information or contact them to get a review of your product. If you want to know how to interact effectively with your customers, read here!

  1. Ignoring product reviews

It is important to know what users think of a particular service or product. So gather some information and read the reviews. This way you can also know what your customers think about your products and improve yourself accordingly.

  1. Not having a return policy

Set up a return policy, with clear terms and conditions. Establish in advance the time limits, the costs of return shipments, who will be charged for them and if you foresee the possibility of exchanging goods.
