Dropshippers Are Liars: Why They Lie & How?

By Eugene S.


We are sure you have seen all dropshipping bloggers all over the internet claiming to have secret key to dropshipping success. Of course, they are successful, and most probably they know what they’re talking about…But many of them seem to forget certain facts because they gotta sell a beautiful picture to their followers.

In this article we’ll see why dropshipping bloggers outwardly lie to their viewers, what is the most common lies so that you can be confident. Then, we’ll show you some real truth and tips.


Why do dropshippers lie?

First, it’s their own safety. Yes, it’s unsafe to even say what business you have because when it comes to online businesses, dropshippers don’t have a team of software pros working on the website, ensuring it is always secure and protected from attacks and thieves.

Big businesses have engineering teams, but dropshippers with maximum 5 people working for them can’t afford a full-time engineer. That’s why you often don’t see bloggers add links to their stores to avoid unnecessary risk. If someone hacks a their website, it can be stolen without a chance to get it back. Stealing all the money from the store’s account? Easy. 

Second reason is basic – it’s just business. Why would they tell you something nice for free if they sell it on their course? All dropshippers charge money for their wisdom. No one wants to share what they learned with hard work for free.

What do dropshippers lie about?

First, dropshippers lie about the products they sell. They don’t want you to know the best products to sell since you’d be their competition. If they know that winning, hot product and they spent days and weeks finding it, they’re not going to tell you what it is exactly. Not for free, at least.

Also, they push the idea that paid ads are a must. No. You can promote their store for free. There are many tools that make it work. Paid ads obviously can bring a somewhat quicker result, but it’s not magic. You have to have some experience in running paid ads or have someone guide you in it. Just because you have a high bid in ads doesn’t guarantee you anything. There are many hidden details that you must understand.

With that being said, dropshippers make you think that paid ads are the only possible way…because they want you to buy their guide, course, or mentorship.

Last (but definitely not the least) lie we talk about today is that you need experience in dropshipping. Every business person has their own path to success. Comparing yourself to others is never effective. All trees grow differently! Many of our successful partners prove that there is nothing impossible in dropshipping AND there’s no need for crazy amount experience.
