5 reasons your dropshipping is not making money


The first reason people find a dropshipping site is not making money, is lack of traffic. Obviously, if your site isn’t getting traffic, no one is seeing your site. If they don’t see it, they can’t buy it. The most popular way that people use to get traffic when they are first starting out is to use paid advertising. While this can be effective it is by no means a guarantee. Often times visitors to your site will simply click through because they are curious. Is there anything to hold them there after they land on site after they click other than the product? See the interest section below

The Product

Another reason a dropshipping site is not making money could be the product itself.  If you are getting lots of traffic but no sales, then it could be the pricing, or the product itself. Depending on your traffic source, your site may have caught the interest of a visitor, but the product didn’t. With lots of traffic, but no sales, you may want to think of diversifying your monetization strategy and think about adding an alternative means  of making money such as affiliate links


If your shop is just an array of products it isn’t going to hold interest for long unless you have a popular unique product that someone cannot find anywhere else. Does your shop offer any information or something to hold a visitor’s attention or does it just scream “BUY FROM ME?”   Information will not only help keep visitors attention but it can help bring traffic to your site. If your site doesn’t hold interest then it could be why your dropshipping site is not making money.
