Shopify Dropshipping has been a big trend in the past 2 years now, especially for those who want to be their own CEOs.

Here are some generalizations that we can incur from looking at the top shopify dropshipping stores based on traffic:
- General stores are effective in generating traffic and revenue, since you’ll be able to test out trending products without being limited to your niche
- Niche stores are more about creating a brand that targets a more specific audience, which increases the perceived value of the products
- The design of the store plays a part to some extent – but basic and minimal design can still be effective if you can bring in the targeted traffic
- The main traffic source that works right now for ecommerce is through Facebook
- The next step from dropshipping is private labeling products or creating derivatives of products that you have already proven as winners
There are still a lot of Shopify dropshipping stores that are successful even if they are not bringing in the similar amount of traffic but its a good measure on the effort that the business puts into driving targeted traffic into the store to generate a substantial amount of revenue. This just proves that Shopify dropshipping still works and its a business model that should not be ignored.
