Why is it a great business idea to sell low-cost but demanded products?

Although high ticket dropshipping is also a promising business idea, we recommend that our clients focus on low-cost products. Why? Let’s find it out.

Firstly, the demand for lost-cost products is always higher. Since people from all over the world have absolutely different income rates, not all of them can afford to buy products that cost, for example, $2,000. Meanwhile, if you spend $5 on a useful device, you are highly unlikely to go bankrupt. That’s why, the order number of cheap products is a lot higher.

Secondly, you can always count on impulse purchases. The products you are going to sell will not cost a fortune, so it will be easier for you to convince a potential customer to make a purchase.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg! And now imagine that there will not be only trending products to sell, but also useful and unique electronics.

Best tech under 5 dollars: how to dropship?

So you are going to deal with electronics and accessories. But how to dropship them in the right way? What should a business owner have in order to dropship electronics?

What’s more, it is great if you have knowledge of electronics. It’s one more advantage if you know which products are going to be more useful and reliable for your customers.

Moreover, it’s important to understand which products are trending to sell, and which are ever-green.

In fact, it’s very easy to start dropshipping best tech under 5 dollars. Even in case of no skills in electronics, it will not take you much time and effort to put your own ecommerce business on autopilot.

    Ok May 27, 2020 10:25:47

    It’s ok

Edmund May 25, 2020 3:04:45

Under $5 but what about reselling them, will it still be under $5? Also, question mark on the numbers sold? Real or fake?

    Olga L. May 25, 2020 4:43:34

    Hi, thank you for your interest!
    1) No, when you resell these items in your dropshipping store, you are free to set any price you want. However, a low initial price gives your business the advantages we listed in the first chapter of this article.
    2) The screenshots showing the number of products sold, as you can see, are taken from AliExpress itself. AliExpress displays sellers’ track record transparently, which is why these numbers reflect the actual buyers’ demand and activity.

    Wow I find it very interesting thanks

Kanyapach Siritorsangsuk May 25, 2020 4:15:46

สำหรับราคา 299$ รวมDomain name หรือไม่?

    Olga L. May 25, 2020 4:28:39

    Hi, thank you for your interest!
    Yes, the cost of a .com domain is included into the price of a Basic Custom store.

Mchumane Gumede May 25, 2020 7:19:02

This is real insightful info thanks guys, Keep it up. Cheers!!!

Marc Parent May 25, 2020 7:25:44

Great article. So what is your recommended pricing strategy when ti comes to these low priced items? I hear 3X? You must have a recommendation based on experience?

    Olga L. May 25, 2020 7:59:08

    Hi, thank you for your interest!
    Our recommended markup formula for items that cost from $1 to $5 is price*2+$2 – so, a $5 product will cost $12 in this case. However, it’s always up to store owners to define the final price – we’re not limiting or controlling them in any way 🙂

      Marc Parent May 25, 2020 9:19:00

      okay interesting calculation, thank you

      Marc Parent May 25, 2020 10:08:33

      What about for products over $5?

      Stuart May 26, 2020 12:01:59

      Plus delivery?

Efe May 25, 2020 8:02:41

Hi I am a novice at ecommerce. I have a passion to sell. If I open my online store with you and I add a little profit margin. What is the criteria that the same product won’t be bought directly from your on line store for less?
With the lockdown in most countries how would you ship the products across?
When profits are calculated for example do you make the deduction from my e-wallet? Or how do I get paid?

    Artyom K. May 27, 2020 3:49:43

    Hello, thank you for the interest!
    1) AliDropship itself doesn’t sell anything but ready-to-launch and ready-made businesses and IT solutions for them. That’s why you don’t need to fight for customers against us.
    However, if you want to know why online shoppers often buy products in niche stores instead of large online platforms, feel free to read this article –
    2) We don’t ship anything since we don’t sell anything besides businesses, IT solution, and services. If you worry about the lockdown, we are glad to inform you that COVID-19 has started to retreat in many countries. Anyway, shipping companies work as usual, and there are no problems with delivery. So ask your suppliers whether they send packages as usual and that’s it.
    3) We don’t deal with your e-wallet. Your profit is the difference between your price and the one of your supplier. We don’t charge any commisions for using AliDropship Plugin. You’re supposed to make one-time payment only.

    A May 27, 2020 8:39:55

    For some products mentioned price is 5$ and shipping charges are extra 2$. For some products shipping is free.
    It gets confusing on how to set the pricing formula?

      Joseph June 5, 2020 17:32:46

      I guess this works for custom made store. What about ready made webstore?
      Do I also pay for adverts for ready made webstore? Or I just set the profit margin and everything runs on autopilot.
      Can I target customer s in different countries.

        Olga L. June 8, 2020 9:59:09

        Hi, thank you for your interest!
        Whatever type of store you have, you need to advertise it: otherwise, Internet users will have no opportunity to discover it. And of course, you are free to target customers in any destination you fancy.

مقال جيد جدا ويجعلك متحمس للغاية
سؤالي هل الشحن عندكم سريع إلى الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية فهذا هو المشكل الذي نواجهه في كثير من المنصات الاخرى

    Artyom K. May 27, 2020 3:14:45

    Hello, thank you for the interest!
    As a rule, we recommend that our clients use ePacket. It’s one of the most efficient ways to ensure fast shipping.
    However, at the moment, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, ePacket is not always able to provide you with fast shipping. So nowadays we believe it’s better to use regular shipping options. And when COVID-19 retreat, ePacket is supposed to meet your requirements again.

Olayinka May 25, 2020 15:59:55

How to get this stuff is my challenge

    Artyom K. May 26, 2020 10:18:57

    Hello, thank you for the interest!
    If you want to add these products to your online store, feel free to use AliDropship Plugin. You can use it to import the products you like into your store, meanwhile, it can help you customize and optimize your business and put it on autopilot.

Paul May 25, 2020 16:05:50

Hi. So,how does the delivery process looks like, am I done to do it or AliExpress?

    Artyom K. May 26, 2020 10:24:22

    Hello, thank you for the interest!
    If running a dropshipping store, you don’t have to worry about the delivery process. All you need is to find reliable suppliers, and it’s their duty to ensure the delivery.

Bree Aware May 25, 2020 17:01:57

To all the comments
Thank you

Stuart May 26, 2020 12:00:13

Thanks. This is interesting. Maybe it’s just me but I can’t understand why anyone would spend <$5 on a product and then wait for two to three weeks for delivery. Does this really happen as often as you suggest?

    Artyom K. May 27, 2020 3:06:38

    Hello, thank you for the interest!
    Since online shopping has been gaining momemtum, people will wait for their packages for two or three weeks. And it’s not only about <$5 items. If ordering products in online stores, people can buy them at a lot lower price than in offline stores.

      Stuart May 27, 2020 8:23:55

      Thanks Artayom. I can understand cost savings of $20 – $30 maybe making one wait but not if the saving is only $5 – $10. Anyway, you’re the expert. And maybe I’m just unusual that I wouldn’t shop this way for cheaper items.

    Michael June 7, 2020 7:00:46

    Interesting. I need to start this business with you. Just give me the easy step by step to start under 5 dollars.
