The best goods are those that aren’t often returned, are mid to low in price, and are small enough to ship quickly and cheaply.
Stay away from it.
Clothes, as they were often returned.
Furniture is costly, difficult to ship, and vulnerable to damage during shipping and assembly. (I bet you “it came damaged” if a buyer damages it when building it.)
Designer products are too easy to forge, and you shut down as soon as you suspect you’re selling knockoffs.
Cheap jewellery is just pence, and there is no value in it. Scammers target both buyers and sellers of expensive jewellery.
But, with the right supplier, you can sell almost everything.
Now for the unvarnished facts about dropshipping.
It’s difficult, very difficult. It’s not for you if you think you should just sit there and upload some things, push a few buttons, and watch the money roll in.
You’ll have to master a whole new set of skills. I spent over two years perfecting it.
It must be combined with SEO. Recognize the processes and promote your brand. It goes on and on about graphic design, website creation, and csv files.
It’s peak hour, and you’ll be dealing with irate customers at all hours of the day and night.
It’s not fair; you’re the go-between, the bridge between your client and your supplier.
It’s a great way to make money, and it works most of the time, but like any company, there are times when something goes wrong, and you have to drop everything and spend hours or days repairing everything.

First, I’ll list a few niches that you should probably avoid.
Large and heavy goods
Returning to the topic of determining the best product or niche to sell, the key concept to remember is that you may have the best product in the world, but if you don’t know how to market it, you won’t make any money.
It’s akin to making the worst product. You will make the most money if you know how to sell it.
However, if you succeed at both finding a decent niche and possessing excellent marketing skills, you’ll be a money machine.
I suggest that you look over the list of resources available here.
It’s not only about the product, but it’s about the business skills that will decide your success.
Tips for conducting product research:
1. If you’re doing a niche, it has to be something you’re passionate about.
2. The product must solve a problem or elicit an emotional response from the consumer, or it must have the WOW factor. Is the item in high demand?
3. Choose a product before it becomes famous, using Google Trends to do so.
4. Don’t want items that can be found at Walmart.
5. Choose a product that will make you money.
6. Choose a product with excellent images and videos, or one that can produce excellent video and photos.
7. Choose a commodity based on a reliable supplier.
8. Determine the perceived value of the product and how much it is worth to solve the problem.
