The competition is getting harder though.
Quite a few is using AliExpress, but eBay (and similar) is flooded with those products and the profit margin is low.
Not worth the problems if you ask me, unless you import a niche product and have a market for it.

Maybe not people are doing successfully is because they get wholesale price from the middlemen which they claim themselves as a drop shipper. So the reseller set their retail price higher than it should be. So, I believe ready products such as baby product, electrical appliances and etc are very competitive in pricing. So, reseller can mark up the price only very small. Which means cannot make profit a lot. Why don't you try customized products that is if you are interested. A reseller can mark up the price as high as 50%. I'm not joking here.
Ebay is one of the best place to make a research to make a research on pricing.

The dropshipper needs to be professional though, and not go crazy with the percentages they are adding to the product ranges. It needs to be a partnership between the reseller, and the dropshipper. That is the only relationship that can work with dropshipping.
There are also many success stories about dropshipping, so it definitely works, when the effort is applied.

I agree with the things you said about dropshipping.
Also, if you know how to conduct your dropshipping, you will succeed.
moreover it's very important to know your suppliers and choose them correctly.
Good luck to all of us!

If you believe you can spend a higher amount of money, maybe you can upgrade to AliBaba ( AliExpress parent company ) but be aware they don't talk in few thousands, these are companies that sells in hundreds of thousands, the minimum order you may want to place would be 10K and up.
I suggest to start with AliExpress , build a good relationship with these companies at first.
AliExpress is not the only company there are others like BuySKU, or ahappydeal.com , or bestofferbuy.com, .... there are hundreds of wholesale stores.
Another advice, you may want to consider using coupons or rebates when you buy from these stores, you will be shocked how much you can get back from these companies that close the deal between you and the seller.
I used to do wholesale, and even considered dropping, but I only had chance to work with AliExpress, most of other wholesale companies, I got chance to partner with in order to help droppshippers and wholesales buyers save more on their orders.
