If you’re looking to start your own e-commerce store in 2019, I’ve got some good news for you – there are tons of unique
What Makes a Great Dropshipping Products?
Before we dive into our list, let’s quickly cover the criteria that I used to choose these products. When I was compiling this list, I looked at data from successful Oberlo merchants and used my own experience in e-commerce to validate the ideas.
In my opinion, a great dropshipping product is:
- Hard to find anywhere else online
- Hard to guess the price
- Interesting enough to entice buyers to click
- Purchased without much research
- Not too expensive
You’ll notice that many of the products from this article will touch on multiple points from this list. Other
1 – Moon Lamps
Moon lamps kick off our list of unique dropshipping products, and with good reason too. They’re sure to make your store stand out from the crowd. But, what’s so special about these products you ask?
In the homeware niche, there are plenty of established brands selling products which your customers are likely already familiar with. However, it’s unlikely that your customers have seen these products before, and that’s why they’re perfect for
If you’re selling products that are hard to find elsewhere, it’s going to be much easier to land a sale. After all, if you capture the interest of your audience, and they don’t know where else they can purchase the product, it’ll be your store which they turn to.
Right now, moon lamps are relatively unknown, but I forecast them to explode in popularity in the near future. Customers are going to be over the moon for this product -but really! Trendlines point to this being a bestseller in 2019. Get ahead of the pack by adding this product to your store now.
2- Gold Plated Flowers
Flowers are a classic romantic gift and a great way for customers to show their loved ones how much they care. However, real flowers will eventually wilt over time. For relationships that are built to last, I love these gold-plated flowers. That’s why I’ve included them on our list. These flowers are a heartfelt gift item with staying power.
The best part?
There are dozens of occasions throughout the year when buyers need to purchase flowers. Customers might buy gold-plated flowers because it’s Valentine’s Day, or because they forgot it was Valentine’s Day, or because it’s their anniversary, or they forget it was their anniversary.
Point is, you can rest assured that there is a market for these products, and there are lots of shopping holidays throughout the year which you can take advantage of to land more sales.
3- World Map Watches
In general, watches are great products for
These products are trendy, unisex, and they offer a modern twist on a classic product. It’s also unlikely that your audience will have seen these products before. Like I mentioned earlier, if your audience has only seen your store selling these products, it’ll be you who lands the sale.
All in all, these products will prove a valuable addition to any store selling fashion accessories. Just be careful not to price these products too high. Customers will be more likely to buy these products when they aren’t too expensive.
4- Dog Water Bottles
Dog water bottles are next up on our list. Pet owners who are passionate about their furry friends generally love to pamper them with new, interesting products, which makes pet owners a precious audience for e-commerce entrepreneurs.
These specialised water bottles are perfect for dog walkers year round. They function just like a normal water bottle, but they’ve got an additional compartment where you can pour water, making it easy for your dog to quench its thirst mid-walk. Dog water bottles are also light and compact, making them eligible for the ePacket delivery method so you can ensure that your customers will receive their products promptly.
Try selling dog water bottles if you’re looking to sell pet accessories. They’re a really unique point of entry into the market.
5- Animal Pillows
If you’re looking for products that are great for children, give these plush animal pillows a try. They’re perfect for playtime AND nap time. The target audience for these adorable products will be parents with some expendable income. This market can afford to treat their kids, and they will buy almost anything if it means their little one will stay down for a nap.
While it’s great for e-commerce entrepreneurs to have a clear target audience, the real draw for these products is the fact that they’re pretty cheap to source so you can make attractive margins from selling them. Test out the pricing for these products in your store, and adjust it to find out what your customers are willing to pay.
6- Multifunctional Water Bottles
Multifunctional water bottles definitely belong on this list because I’ve seen so many
These water bottles are unique because they have built-in compartments for pills and supplements, making them perfect for athletes, gym-goers, and everybody else who leads an active lifestyle. These products aren’t flying off the shelves, but the trend is warming. As temperatures rise, I expect more customers to shop for water bottles, so get them in your store before the competition.
7- Animal Rings
Much like watches, jewellery is a great niche for
Now, these rings are fairly cheap to source, and they’ll likely also have a low price point, so I do recommend trying out bundles with these products. Try selling 2, 3, or 5 of these rings at a time.
8- Puzzle Mugs
Up Next, we’ve got puzzled mugs. Just like the world map watches I mentioned earlier, these products are a niche alternative to a product your customers are already familiar with regular old mugs. These products are brand new to Oberlo Supply but they’re selling well.
Remember, it’s all about putting the right products in front of the right people, so I advise using Facebook advertising to promote these mugs. That’s because they just plain look cool! They stand out when somebody is scrolling through their Facebook feed. Also, because these products are such a niche, so you’ll be able to target the right customers with laser precision.
9- Choker Necklaces
Choker necklaces have been a hot product for
Chokers come in a wide range of styles, materials, and colours, so experiment –find a product that matches your brand’s style and is at a price point that makes your offer compelling.
Now, the popularity of chokers on Instagram is a little misleading. It means the product is popular, but it also indicates that Instagram is a crowded platform for advertising chokers. That’s why I recommend you try advertising chokers with Facebook campaigns. There will be less competition, and you can still promote your products to plenty of highly-engaged buyers.
10- Arrow Bracelets
Last up on our list are arrow bracelets. These sleek, stylish bracelets align with the minimalist style of products that I’ve already seen many dropshipping sells successfully. Arrow bracelets are a great product to sell year round, and I only see them becoming more popular thanks to the influx of beauty bloggers who have adopted arrow bracelets as their must-have accessory. Whether you’re just starting a new fashion store, or you’re looking to improve your existing inventory, these charming bracelets are a great addition.
