Is drop shipping ethical? Someone asked me this question on my website and I decided to answer this question! I lot of people feel bad about business. They don’t like the idea that they buy something for cheap and resell it for a higher price. In this post I’m going to give you my view.

Is drop shipping a scam? A lot of people asked me this question in the past….A lot of people feel like it is not ethical because you are selling the product for much more than what you pay. If people went directly to Aliexpress to buy the product, they would have saved a lot of money.
Here is my view...When you go to the corner store, EVERY THING YOU SEE has been bought by the store owner for MUCH CHEAPER. When you buy a pack of gum at the store ( It is about $2 in Canada), you can be 100% sure that the store owner probably paid something like 50 cents at most. Why is he selling it to you for more? There are multiple answers to this question, but one of them is convenience. Even if you could go in the industrial district of your city and buy the pack of gum at 50 cents, you probably wouldn’t….Why? Because you don’t want to go there. You want your pack of gum NOW. You are willing to pay a premium for it…
Another reason why the seller at the corner store is selling the pack of gum for more money than he paid is he has knowledge that you don’t have. Knowledge is power. 99.9% of the people have NO IDEA that they can buy products from China directly on a website called Aliexpress. You now about it because you probably invested time into it, but they didn’t. Time is money and it is normal that you are paid for your special knowledge.
What I’m trying to say here is that you should not feel bad AT ALL about selling products at a higher price than you paid. LITERALLY EVERYTHING THAT YOU BUY had been bought for much cheaper….EVERYTHING. This is the nature of our society.
You have to become a producer, not a consumer. Making money is easy, it really is. One of the main reason why people are broke is because they have limiting beliefs when it comes to money. If you feel not comfortable doing drop shipping, chances are high that you have limiting beliefs when it comes to making money and you would not succeed with any other business model anyways!
When I do Facebook ads selling a product for $40 and I pay the same product for $4 on Aliexpress, I don’t feel bad AT ALL. First of all, they don’t even know about Aliexpress ( Too bad, remember, knowledge is power), and even if they did, most of them are too lazy to go look through all the products to find one that they like! I’m offering them simplicity…By clicking on one bottom they will receive the product at their home…They have nothing to think about, nothing to do. Also, even if they went on Aliexpress themselves, they probably would select the wrong shipping method and they would never receive the product anyways!
The bottom line is that drop shipping using Aliexpress is a legit business model and you can make a lot of money from it.
