Why you should add Etsy Products to Your Current Dropshipping Store
AliExpress Dropshipping is Getting Better, Which Means More Competition Enters the Market Daily

With low cost products, e-packet shipping and great Shopify apps like Oberlo, it is so incredibly easy to start an Aliexpress dropshipping business.
I believe the main reason that a lot of people first start with aliexpress dropshipping, is because how simple it is to get started. It is completely possible to wake up tomorrow, build a Shopify site with aliexpress products during the day, and sell your products with good Facebook Advertisements. This however is getting more and difficult as new shops open ever day to try and get a piece of the growing eCommerce space.
