I came across the concept of dropshipping and am quite interested by it. However my question is, does it really work? Or at least, does it still work today? So many people claim they are making 5 digits per month and I am not sure if they are exaggerating or not.
I guess what I dont understand is this: What is stopping the customers/buyers from buying the items directly from aliexpress, etc? Why do they have to go through us? Wouldn't it be cheaper if the buyers went straight to aliexpress?
