There is a common misconception keeping some people away from online business that you cannot make a living with it – not to speak of making a fortune! But success stories of numerous online entrepreneurs prove otherwise: you can get as large drop shipping profit as you dare to have.
Of course, not all ecommerce options are equally profitable. For example, it’s hard to imagine that someone could earn millions with affiliate marketing only. Good old online retail looks more money-making option. But many ecommerce beginners are afraid that cost of inventory, storage, delivery, refunds and what not can reduce their income to nothing.
This is why dropshipping seems to be a perfect option. No inventory, no stocks. Delivery costs are included in your price. And occasional refunds should not disturb you as your profit margin covers such cases easily.
Drop shipping profit formula
Drop shipping profit much depends on what kind of products you are selling. It’s often a good idea to stick to low price with a high margin potential. Such products usually cost within a R15-R750 price range and these products generally can be priced at R25-R1050 or more. The most successful drop shipping websites have proved that such profit margin range is optimal.
We recommend having a profit margin of 33%-50%.
