Dropshipping VS Dropservicing – Profitable in 2020?

Dropshipping VS Dropservicing is the question I think a lot of people are having & In this blog, we’ll answer that.

Dropshipping is sure as hell profitable in 2020 but I’m seeing a lot of claims that dropshipping is dead & drop servicing is far more profitable in 2020 than dropshipping.

Looking at the business model of dropservicing, I have actually done it myself many times unknowingly but let’s do a comparison of the pros & cons of both Dropshipping VS Dropservicing.

At the end of the blog, you’ll have a complete understanding of Dropshiping & Dropservicing plus which one of the both is more profitable.

Let’s dive in.

Dropshipping VS Dropservicing

I’ll start by explaining both dropshipping & dropservicing & then we’ll get into the pros & cons of both.

Dropshipping Explained

Well, I feel I don’t need to explain this but for the sake of the post, I’ll explain.

Drор shipping is a ѕuррlу сhаіn management mеthоd in whісh thе retailer dоеѕ nоt kеер gооdѕ in ѕtосk but іnѕtеаd trаnѕfеrѕ іtѕ сuѕtоmеr’ѕ оrdеrѕ аnd ѕhірmеnt details tо either thе mаnufасturеr, аnоthеr rеtаіlеr, оr a wholesaler, whо thеn ships the goods dіrесtlу tо the сuѕtоmеr. (Wikipedia)

Dropservicing Explained

Dropservicing is a business type where a seller does not have the required skills for completing a Job he/she undertakes but instead completes the Job with help of a freelancer & thus acting as a middle man between the service provider & customer.

Not sure if that explains it all but that’s pretty much it.

It’s as same as Dropshipping but instead of dropshipping products, you dropship services.

Pros of Dropshipping

Low-Cost Start
No Inventory Needed
Easily Switchable
Easily Scalable
No experience needed

Now, these are some of the pros that affect dropshipping business & I’m not sure I’ve added all of them so I’ll update if necessary.

Cons of Dropshipping

Not long term
The business works until it’s trending
No branding
Can stop anytime
Heavily depends on Manufacturer
Returns are high

These are some of the cons that affect dropshipping business heavily and are to be considered.

To see Dropshipping VS Dropservicing the above pros & cons play an important role, but aside from them a lot of things do affect each business model that can’t be explained via pros & cons & so let jump on to our next section.

Dropshipping VS Dropservicing

I recently wrote a blog about Drop Servicing: The Definitive Guide 2020

Check it out if it helps.

But let’s talk on Dropshipping VS Dropservicing. Which one is best? & Why? & What would I choose?

Well if you are familiar with drop shipping then drop servicing business model is almost 99% the same.

But a lot of people are in dropshipping business rather than dropservicing. You know why?

Dropshipping is quick, Changeable (If 1 store does not work, then open another one) & requires almost no work.

Whereas Dropservicing takes more than a year to build trust among clients, have to find clients, close them personally, show them your past projects, etc.

It’s clearly a lot of work for Dropservicing but my first dropservicing business was profitable & I put 3-4 months of work in it & my first dropshipping store was a Fail & I put 20 days in it.

See the pattern?

Even though I do not do dropservicing anymore, it’s profitable & long term as you build your brand with it.

But drop shipping is just riding the trend wave & starting all over again for a new product.

Now not saying that dropshipping is bad but it depends how much time you are ready to put in your business.

Drop Servicing Courses

So far I have only seen ads from this guy right here.

I can 100% tell it’s not worth your money. You can buy his course on Black hat websites for cheap as it’s worth.

He says he builds 6 figure businesses & still is selling courses on Youtube ads.

The one who makes money does not sell courses on how to make money. HAMMER THAT IN YOUR HEAD.

I don’t sell courses because I don’t need money. I write blogs because I need exposure & connections with big players & not someone’s money.

Don’t know what else to say about his ads so just please don’t buy & save your money.

Conclusion on Dropshipping VS Dropservicing

It totally depends on what kind of business you are looking for.

Dropshipping requires more money to start & Dropservicing requires more time to start.

It’s not really easy as any guru will tell you & definetly don’t buy courses from them.
