Dropshipping hidden costs.

Asked a year ago

Need some advice please. Can anyone point out any hidden costs that are involved in dropshipping? I'm aware of the basics such as marketing and order fees but I'd like someone with real world experience to point me in the right direction. Online retail and dropshipping is still quite new to me so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Some costs of dropshipping that'll come as a surprise to you when you choose the dropshipping model are:

  1. Paying the actual price of your products without discounts since you don't buy wholesale.
  2. Business expenses like obtaining a tax ID, local business license, and business credit cards.
  3. Listing or sales fees if you choose to sell on Amazon or eBay. If it's your own store you'll pay for hosting, domain name, themes, and add-ons.
