unpopular opinion:
A thing that suck about #dropshipping that you don't usually think about.

/A short thread
Dropshipping model feeds on people ignorance.

They could do the same as dropshippers do:
buy it straight from alibaba without paying the extra +30, 50, 100% or whatever margins.

But they don't know about it.

through ads and marketing the game is to fool them into paying a premium for a product.

your edge is their ignorance.

Of couse it can work well and make you tons of money.

But, is it ethical?

One may think: If I don't do it other people will do it.
many problems on the world starts from this thought.

Think deeper and besides your own pockets.

What are the impacts of our actions?

On the other hand: of course dropshippiers may be helping someone find something they need or were looking for.

They have all the time spent building the site and ads.

They're risking their own money and many times failing before they can make their businnes work.

This matters.

But still.

It's not based on a model that frees individuals.
that makes them think
and learn.

and become better.

It's mostly about keeping them sheeps.

That is the biggest thing I don't like about it.

But of course,
this is me.
I'll keep working for human freedoom of mind, body and spirit.

You do what you want.

I'm quite curious to know:
do you see anything wrong with this businness model?

Give me some light and change my mind!
I will love to hear your ideas! ;)

PS: I don't have skin in the game when it comes to dropshipping, my game is juggling (teaching/performing), making juggling videos on Youtube and #crypto investing.

(would love to know your thoughts on that @SCHM7DT @StartSellingSSS @kobegatsby )

Have a nice day!
