    Is there a pretty standard percentage markup that is generally used when dropshipping or does it differ person to person ?

    Definitely variable depending on your supplier. We work on margins between 25 and 50%.

    This varies on many things, product type, supplier/purchase price, available outlets, competition, etc.

    Your best bet is to see the price you can get it for then look at the average selling price on your available sales channel(s).

    Normally with drop shipping, you only get minimum discounts (about 5-10%) as you're essentially purchasing single items at a time. Wholesale pricing works in volume buying - the more units you purchase, the more you save.

    Checkout this blog suggesting ways to make your drop shipping business a success: https://www.salehoo.com/how-to-r-drop-shipping-business-makes-big-money

    Hope this helps.

    Agree 5 to 10% wouldn't work for anyone. Costs would wipe that out. Typo?
