The world is changing really fast.

Thanks to the hard work of scientists and researchers all over the globe, technologies and manufacturing processes are getting more and more advanced. Therefore, it gets cheaper and more convenient to produce various types of items. That’s how they become more accessible on different markets worldwide.

At the same time, influencers and bloggers invent and introduce new ‘hot’ lifestyle habits almost daily! A huge audience observes them through social media, and drives the demand for ‘must-have’ items of the season.

What does it mean for you as a dropshipping store owner?

Basically, if you want to stay at the top of your game, you need to be aware of the latest market movements – and re-evaluate them regularly.

That’s why we never stop making trending product selections. Indeed, a niche recommendation article written over a year ago might be quite outdated by now – and needs to be replaced with a more relevant one.

So, let’s dive in, and look what are the general eCommerce expectations from this year!

bluetooth trending

As you can see from Google Trends, last year, the Bluetooth technology has seen some impressive innovations. Thanks to them, Bluetooth devices now provide an unmatched customer experience, and support a much higher quality of life.

In fact, speakers, headphones, earphones, chargers, trackers, smart home devices, sports and health wearables are the Bluetooth gadgets that are expected to change the face of wireless technology really soon.

If a high-tech future excites you, why not turn your passion into a money-making niche for an online business? Just a quick look at the number of orders of the following AliExpress items is enough to see a huge potential of this niche.

Foldable earphones

Custom coloured headset

Portable speaker

trending magnetic charger

Definitely, the power of magnets is used in various devices and gadgets quite commonly. Most likely, you own such an accessory yourself: magnetic chargers with various adapters are highly popular among smartphone users.  

Much like any other technology, magnetic devices are evolving rapidly, and it certainly attracts the audience’s attention.

For example, a magnetic car mount that enables wireless iPhone charging is featured in a list of the most interesting mobile accessories shown on CES. It’s an impressive achievement:  CES, which is the annual Consumer Electronics Show, is the biggest and the most ambitious tech show in the world.

So, if this technology can really make a great impact on customers’ lives, maybe, it’s a good idea to include it in your store offering? It’s up to you to decide, of course – but these numbers of orders certainly speak for themselves.

Apple watch charger

dropship phone accessories

Price – US $1.59-4.99, rating – 4.9*, number of orders – 14756

Magnetic phone holder

dropship auto accessories

Price – US $3.99-4.99, rating – 4.9*, number of orders – 24929

dropship pillows

So, if you want to dream big, it’s vital to dream well.

Earlier, we’ve already discussed the importance and potential of handy sleep accessories. Still, it seems that in 2020, the so-called ‘sleep optimisation’ will be more important than ever.

Workers, students, parents – millions of people around the globe suffer from a low sleep quality. Surely, not all of them can afford branded memory foam and gel pillows, but does it mean they don’t deserve a proper sleep care?

Actually, the following sample selection of AliExpress items shows a wide variety of options you can offer your clients. Sometimes, a great change to a person’s life starts with a usual, routine thing. Don’t you want to be this little change to the world?

U-shape pillow

resell pillows

Price – US $21.83, rating – 4.7*, number of orders – 2063

Bamboo fiber pillow

trending pillows to resell

Price – US $8.99-19.99, rating – 4.8*, number of orders – 1500

Memory foam pillow

trending products 2019 to dropship

Price – US $8.76, rating – 4.8*, number of orders – 2609

trending planners

Since we’ve started talking about the quality of daily customers’ life, it’s a great moment to mention planners and their role in our personal development.

According to the LinkedIn 2018 Workplace Learning Report, last year, surprisingly, technical competency wasn’t the most important skill for employees to master. Instead, the surveyed managers and executives said that so-called ‘soft skills’ have a paramount importance.

That’s why the habit of planning and taking notes is thought to be one of the 3 most important skills to perfect in 2020. And, with these cute supporting aids, it will be easy and pleasant for your buyers to start documenting and improving their lives!

dropship backpacks

As analysts report, the demand for a healthy lifestyle and fitness-related types of products is growing rapidly. The reason for it is quite simple: the amount of middle class buyers is increasing steadily across the globe. It means that more and more people can afford costly yet beneficial hobbies like gym training, hiking, and other sports & outdoors activities.

Naturally, these hobbies require some high-quality gear – and durable, practical, good-looking sports/travel bags definitely are the essentials.

Even the fashion industry reports that one of the first trends to emerge this year is a huge, ‘human-sized’ backpack with a 180L capacity.

And, while it’s not really necessary to go to such extremes in your store product ideas, it might be great to consider different types of fitness, travel and hiking bags and backpacks. In this case, you can try targeting several customer segments at once, and appeal to both gym-goers and outdoor fans.

40L waterproof backpack

trending backpacks

Price – US $21.29-22.66, rating – 4.8*, number of orders – 981

PU workout handbag

trending handbags

Price – US $39.96, rating – 5.0*, number of orders – 80

Large canvas bag

trending bags 2019

Price – US $27.58-32.69, rating – 4.9*, number of orders – 706

trending clothes to dropship

In fact, floral prints and striped fabrics are once again thriving on runways. 

So, if you’re dropshipping clothes and accessories in your ecommerce store, opt for bold colors and contrasting patterns! Your buyers will be happy to see the cutting-edge fashion in your product offering.

Let’s see what are the matching items we can find on AliExpress!

Geometric pattern dress


Price – US $11.91, rating – 4.9*, number of orders – 940

trending products 2019

In practice, the last year trend of sparkling jewelry and glittering accessories continues to thrive this season.

Now, everyone is crazy for shimmery fabrics, and fashionistas are hunting for lovely metallic textures of silk and satin.

Certainly, AliExpress sellers offer the widest range of apparel and accessories that meet the new public demand!

dropshipping to nigeria is any problem

Lanu Bennett March 4, 2019 11:19:42

You can own a drop-shipping website in Nigeria, but you don’t have to serve Nigeria. You can target any other A1 countries where postal services is more sincere and better. I agree that logistics to drop ship to Nigeria might be tough and not worth it,

AKIN November 20, 2019 1:51:44

Owning Dropshipping in Nigeria is a problem. Because of payment issue.
No paypal access.

Ulrich Archie-Bong January 9, 2019 21:09:11

Hi Olga, compliment of the seasons!

I’ve been on your email list for awhile now and I must confess that you’re an expert in DROPSHIP business. I say this because of the quality articles you post on you’ve made me to be highly interested in DROPSHIP business. A business model I really don’t know much about but before I place order for either the plugin or custom store I’ll like to know if this business will yield good dividence for my investment here in Nigeria.

Please furnish me with information about how I can start and succeed in this business here in Nigeria.

You may be surprised to know that online business people can’t get paid via paypal. We can only use PayPal to buy, we can’t sell online using paypal. I wouldn’t know if there is any other payment processor that is as popular as paypal that is opened to Nigerian online businessperson. I say this because that’s one of the major challenge I’m facing doing business online.

Please respond quickly. If your response is positive, I intend placing order on or before the end of March, 2019.

Thanking you in advance for your prompt and favourable response.

Ulrich Archie-Bong.

Hi Olga,
Thank you for the interesting article.

I have bought the alidropship plugin but I have not started building my store yet as I am stuck which niche direction to go.

May be you can help me to move forward by answering some of the questions I have right now.

1) Do you recommend general store or niche store for a beginner?
2) Some marketers suggested to build our business based on what we are passionate about. Does this idea applicable to dropship business?
3) I heard there are products that we should avoid promoting, do you have a list of these products?

Thanks in advance.

I would recommend you using a narrow niche, not a general one with multiple product categories of different topics. Always consider ‘niching down’ to small subsets of the overlying niche in your store. Sell something that isn’t readily available locally. Pick something your customer can’t find down the street. And make sure your product appeals to impulse buyers, something nice, cool and unique.

Hello, first your customer pays you for a product, then you go to AliExpress and pay your supplier for this product. The supplier ships the product to your client. I recommend that you check this article to learn more about how dropshipping model works.
