Hi, all hope you are well :)

I am very new in dropshipping. I work as a Web designer and I wish to start out. I wanted to start on women's clothing and fashion, but I honestly got overwhelmed. I went over 17 pages in the supplier search page and didn't find one that I did not like. I'm thinking of broadening my category and going into another niche if it isn't women's clothing and fashion,

In your own experience, what do you recommend the best and safest niche to start in where you do not end up bankrupt or rarely fails? I want to thank you all for this and keep on being awesome!

Hi @garyborg, here are a few ideas for possible niches/items you could look at and the pros and cons of each one.

There are also some suppliers listed for each niche (requires SaleHoo membership to access these):

BE CAREFUL! When deciding what to sell everyone should take into account the information you are looking at is also being seen by 1000's of others. You need to be creative, either find a niche everyone else is NOT likely to do, or do some type of Overstock/Closeout type of products, because they are usually temporary offers and very profitable. We've wholesaled/liquidated products to many businesses/individuals over the years, but we've also seen so much failure because people forget if they do the same thing as everyone else does, they will get the same result which is usually failure.
