Disadvantages of Dropshipping
There’s also the other side. Dropshipping doesn’t have to be all glamorous.
These are the things you should keep in mind and what to do if they happen.
Lower profit margins
Yes, you save inventory costs. You also earn a profit on every order that you pass to the supplier from the customer. This margin isn’t very impressive as the majority of income goes to suppliers.
If a customer pays Rs 300 and you receive Rs 250 from your supplier for the product, your margin is only 50. It’s not bad, though. To get a high profit margin and a large number of orders, you will need to be aggressive. Dropshippers who specialize in niches that are competitive may find it difficult to do this. If you are unable to offer it, the customer will go to another dropshipper who can.
Reduplication of Exposure
Dropshipping has a significantly lower brand visibility than opening an online store and managing the show. Customers will think of dropshipping as a platform rather than a brand, unless they are very wealthy. This could pose a challenge if you are trying to grow and evolve your brand.
Wrath & Furious: The Customer Edition
Wrath & Furious- I to II… It could go on like Dominic Toretto’s team. The customer will only turn to you for support and clarifications, even if the supplier makes a mistake. You are the one at the receiving end. You might come across poor suppliers. You could get bad reviews that can quickly ruin your reputation and credibility.
Most likely, dropshippers will have other suppliers who offer the same products as you. You could run out of products on certain days and lose potential customers. It could also be difficult to keep an eye on available products and their quantities, and provide that information to customers.
We thought this was a good warning sign, even though it is not common. Remember how we advised to cherry-pick suppliers? It’s more than just about the product quality. You could also be held responsible if your supplier engages in illegal activities as part of your business. Although the risk is not always present, it still exists. I don’t need to reiterate the inconveniences of lawsuits.
Let’s now take a look at the most popular dropshipping platforms. You can read more about them in our upcoming blogs.
