Finding new winning products can be tricky. 

Most people turn on their ads, hoping and praying for sales to come in. 

Without verified data and spy tools to predictably find hot-selling products, it can be darn near impossible to find profitable products and run a successful dropshipping business. 

Fortunately, Trending Products software scours the internet for all eCommerce stores and finds trending data on what’s currently selling in the market.

The Bluetooth sleeping mask offers noise-canceling earphones to eliminate distractions, which helps people get a good night of sleep. 

It works by connecting the device to your smartphone device. The eye mask is made from soft velvet and breathable polyester for comfort. 

Why we like this product: 

Roughly 50 to 70 million Americans have some form of sleep disorder. People of all ages and socioeconomic statuses have varying severity of sleep problems. 

Spending $20 to $35 on a sleeping product that may completely improve their ability to fall and stay asleep is an easy impulse buy for consumers. 

Since it only costs $6.8 to buy from Aliexpress, it has a high-perceived value due to the added Bluetooth functionality. This allows you to sell the product for above $30 easily.

The beauty of the sleeping mask is that there are so many niches you can target. That makes the product more difficult to reach saturation since you can branch off to different groups of people. 

Here are some interest-targeting ideas you can use for Facebook and Instagram: 

  • Parents with toddlers or preschoolers 
  • Employers working in industries such as Legal Services, Veterans, Military, Business and Finance, Healthcare and Medical Services, etc. 
  • Motherhood, family, fatherhood, and parenting
  • Fitness and Wellness

We recommend bundling the sleep mask with other sleeping accessories, such as a cooling pillow or mattress pad, to help people fall asleep. 

This store bundles the Bluetooth mask with an orthopedic latex magnetic pillow and a bedside storage sleeve.

The LED Magnetic Sensor Night Light has a built-in magnet to stick onto any surface area without using screws or bolts. 

Its motion detection feature automatically turns on and off when it senses movement. 

Furthermore, it can last over five hours under the Always On Mode before it needs to recharge. 

Why We Like This Product: 

While consumers can buy lights from any store, finding a motion sensor magnetic light is unique. 

You can place it anywhere, like your kitchen, closet, bathroom, or wherever you see fit.

Characteristing a Trend

Most dropship store owners don’t know how to sort out between the good and the bad products to sell online. Most people simply look at best sellers, copy what others are selling, or even worst, listen to their friends. 

While those strategies can work, it’s likely to fail. A battery strategy is to find characteristics of products based on the criteria we’ve listed below. That way, you know products that have the potential to sell online, and you can spot opportunities in the marketplace that others won’t see.

Attention-Catching and Unique

Unlike selling on Amazon or eBay, people won’t find your store or products through organic search. Dropshippers typically need to advertise through interruption marketing. 

Catching buyers’ attention as they scroll through their social media feeds is the key to capturing eyeballs for the advertisement. 

As a result, the ad creative and product must be eye-catching and unique. Dropshipping products shouldn’t be easily found in your local retail stores. They should be one-of-a-kind, making the product more desirable. If the product can be found at a box retailer, there’s a good chance they’ll choose a more trustworthy company to buy it from. 

Passion and Problems

Have you heard of the saying, “the riches are in the niches?” Passionate niche products serve a singular group of people with a shared interest. 

People who are extremely passionate about a hobby will do anything to continue to grow their passion and uphold their affinity towards it. For example, people who love fishing want to buy all the gear needed to help them catch trophy fish.

In addition, products that solve a specific problem can feed into the impulse of buyers. A person with back pain wants to do everything they can to alleviate the issue. That’s why the back brace protectors have performed so well and continually perform well. 

Offers Healthy Margins

While getting sales is a crucial aspect of dropshipping, many dropshippers choose products with low-profit margins.

The key is to find products with a high-perceived value or a product that many would have trouble guessing the price of. 

Once you’ve found high-perceived products, you’ll want to try to price your products two to three times the supplier-listed price. 

Here’s an example of a pricing strategy you can follow: 

Cost of Item from SupplierThe Price to Sell it At
$.01 to $2$9.95
$2.01 – $4.99$14.95
$5 to $30At least two to three times the costs
$30 or greater 1.5 to 3 times the costs

You can account for advertising expenses, operating expenses, and payment provider fees by selling your product for at least twice the supplier cost. 

Let’s say a product costs $15, and you sell for $30. 

  • $30 sale minus $15 in product cost
  • $15 minus $3 in payment transaction fee 
  • $12 left to spend on advertising to break even on the product. 

Once you know the break-even costs, you can slowly increase the price until the sales taper off.

Weight and Size

The rule of thumb for finding worthwhile dropshipping products is that they should fit inside a shoe box. Any larger will raise the shipping cost, making selling the items less practical. 

If you intend on using ePacket, a delivery service that enables you to ship quickly from China to the United States and over 30 countries, you’ll need to be mindful of the weight and size. For ePacket, there are the minimum and maximum size requirements. The weight limit is also 4.4 lbs or 2kg.

When deciding on products to dropship, look for lightweight and small items to ensure you won’t run into shipping problems. 

Low Turnover

You want your dropship product to remain in production for long periods. Your investment in quality sales copy, photos, and ad creative will reap long-term benefits. While seasonal items are great, building your store around them isn’t a good idea. Products with high turnovers, meaning they are changed or discontinued, aren’t great choices since you’ll have to update your product listings continually. 

Retail Price

Retail price is the amount you can sell a product for. We advise selecting products that sell between $15 and $200. While it may sound like a wide gap, this is typically the sweet spot for eCommerce products to dropship. 

Here are several reasons why the best dropshipping products retail between $15 and $200: 

  • Having affordable products usually translates to selling higher volumes. 
  • Selling high volumes provides more opportunities to receive customer feedback, which builds trust and credibility. 
  • Selling products for under $15 makes it difficult to make profits and requires you to acquire many customers. 
  • Products that retail for over $200 aren’t affordable and won’t be considered impulse buys, meaning customers need more information to decide. 
  • Selling products for over $200 can mean that refunds can set your business back.

Few Moving Parts

Good dropshipping products shouldn’t be fragile or fiddly since they could easily break during transit. This will only lead to returns and negative feedback, leading to a poor reputation for your store. Of course, a poor reputation can cause ad accounts to shut down, payment providers to withhold money, or eCommerce platforms to withdraw their business from you. 

Electronics can fall into this category, especially if you’re sourcing from suppliers you’re not familiar with. 

It’s best to stick with reliable products that can withstand the rigors of international travel. 

Quality Supplier

Choosing the right dropshipping product is only half the battle. You’ll also need to ensure you only pick quality suppliers. This is incredibly important for dropshipping since you rely on the supplier to manufacture the product, have enough stock, and ship it to your customers on time. 

Potential Repeat Business

Many dropshippers fail to realize that some of the best products can generate repeat business. While it’s not always necessary, it’s very helpful, especially since many products come and go. 

Recently, subscription services have become increasingly popular, and businesses can offer subscriptions to customers. For example, men’s shavers, curated socks, and many other products can warrant customers to pay monthly. This helps to guarantee sellers a more predictable income. 

If you’re able to convert a customer once, you may secure repeat business by offering a product that is renewable, disposable, or offered as a subscription service. 

Common Mistakes

You will inevitably make mistakes in your dropshipping business. 

However, you can learn from the mistakes of other dropshipping. Here are several common mistakes people make when selecting their product to dropship. 

Mistake #1

Choosing a Branded or Designer Product

Many assume that selling big-name brands can make boatloads of money online since they’re in demand, well-known, and expensive. However, the truth is that designer products have low-profit margins and are expensive to source, making them a poor choice for product selection.Ā 

Unless you have the buying power for a retail store, it’s best to avoid big-name brands. Instead, stick with generic products or consider transitioning to private labeling once you’ve found successful winners. 

Mistake #2

Choosing a Competitive Product

Many beginners dropshipping believe they’ve found a great product to sell if it’s on the all-time top-selling and hot products list. Or if they see it all over social media, it must be a good product to sell, right?Ā 

Nope! You shouldn’t sell products that are hyper-competitive. If you have 20 other sellers advertising the same product, you’ll have to compete for market share. Also, you’ll need to drop your prices, which you want to avoid. 

Mistake #3

Selecting Knockoff Products

It’s tempting to sell imitation or knockoff products since it’s cheaper than the real thing. However, you should stay clear from selling counterfeit products. Doing so leads to serious legal trouble and jeopardizes your business.Ā 

If your suppliers offer you branded products at prices that sound too good to be true, there’s a good chance they’re knockoff versions. 

Wrapping It Up

Product research can make or break your business. 

You’re constantly competing against other dropshippers; any advantage you have to succeed should be taken. 

That’s why we’ve done the hard work by giving you the trending products that are working right now.
