Surprisingly the top mobile shopping app isn’t the Amazon or eBay app. It’s Wish, an ecommerce store that was created in 2010 by Danny Zhang, a Google engineer and Peter Szulczewski, a Yahoo engineer.
Just four years after its creation Wish was listed as the top-selling ecommerce site by Google in 2014. Wish now has more than 200 million users worldwide.
Dropshipping with Wish has been and will remain a gold mine to dropshippers for many years. With its AI-powered product recommendations and smart user data mine Algorithms, Wish offers sellers a wealth opportunity to sell to an established market.
Wish suggests products to users, unlike other marketplaces that require users to search for specific products before they purchase. Wish uses legally mined data and previous purchases to recommend products. People are often not sure what they want to buy. People make a decision on what items to buy only after visiting a store and looking at the different products. Wish smart product recommendations have taken care of this consumer uncertainty by allowing them to easily browse through a small number of products that are well-placed for them to make a decision.
Wish also recommends products based upon customers’ Wishlists. Dropshippers, particularly new dropshippers, find this advantageous as it means your products will be displayed quickly and easily. Wish product recommendations are much more straightforward than Amazon. They don’t require you to do any promotions to get your products displayed to millions of buyers dashboard. Wish makes money only when your item is sold. Wish’s responsibility for product promotion lies entirely with it.

Many dropshippers make mistakes when they fail to adhere to even the most basic terms and conditions. Wish doesn’t want them making the same mistakes. Before you sign up for a Wish dropshipper account, make sure to check and confirm certain things.
* Competitive Pricing

Wish sells camera drones, which are often priced at around $1000+, for as low $30 as $30. Sometimes it is even less.
Since consumers have the low-price-expectations, it’s often a good idea to dropship only products that are portable and very cheap. You should also consider quality in order to decrease the number of returns and increase profit margins.

Wish requires that you get an authorization from the brand owners to dropship branded products. This policy is in place to protect product abuse and right infringement.
