Then read the competition in your shortlisted niche, how entrenched it is in the market. Lastly, make sure that the niche you are going to choose gives you a profit margin of at least 40% after all the expenses and taxes have been paid.


Choose The Right Product

You can dropship literally everything and anything. However, the general rule of thumb is to choose a product which has a good sale demand on Amazon and eBay. Moreover, the chosen product should not be marketed by major brands to avoid heavy competition, it has to be small-sized and light in weight to support convenience of shipping, should retail between $15 to $200 so mass could afford it and last but not the least, it must not be a seasonal product so keep the demand stream non-fluctuating. These things are necessary to make the doing dropship business in Australia good at the profit end.


Business Idea Brainstorming

If by the end of this process, you have at least 1 product idea which satisfies the criteria then you are ready to roll it in the online e-commerce market in Australia or in case you have none then you can start the brainstorming process again.


Rely On The Market Research

There are third party research entities which could provide you valuable information like viable products across different categories, their demand over online selling touchpoints, number of the trusted supplier of that particular product, the intensity of competition, to name a few. This kind of information can help you greatly in starting the drop shipping .


Play Smart With The Competition

The process of successfully requires you to keep an eagle’s eye over the major competition of your chosen category. Then you should outsell and outsmart them by improvising on your own selling gimmicks and shenanigans.
