It could not sound like a popular idea today but I believe we will see a major shift in dropshipping. It becomes harder and harder to find and compete in new niches. It becomes more and more challenging to do dropshipping business.
I'm thinking about a pretty radical idea to shift competition towards better service for buyers. The service one gets from AliExpress is really low level. So maybe it makes sense to compete on the service level. This is something we already see on marketplaces like Amazon (different sellers charging differently for same items). But if some marketplace would have much more transparent and more reliable ratings/review system it should be possible to compete on the service level that buyers appreciate a lot.
Or am I wrong (again)?
