I have a Siteground hosting account, so can easily throw up another site and install Wordpress on it, then point a domain at it. That side is no problem. I have many years of experience helping other people to sell online, but have never dabbled in dropshipping myself. So...
1. I am allergic to monthly fees just to experiment. Are there ecomm plugins or themes that, once purchased, are then free to use?
2. If so, just how good are they for bringing in products from Alibaba or Aliexpress? Can I easily edit the descriptions and photos, WITHOUT giving my copywriting to Shopify or whoever? That's one of the things that rules out Shopify for me BTW.
3. Any other options than Alibaba/express?
4. Am I too late to this party? Is such dropshipping on the ascent, steady or already a dying business model?
If I were to do this I would have a specific niche, if that helps.
Sez you, WF? Anyone?
