Hi @DeeKayy ,

It would be great to take consider the following: 

1. Decide on your niche

2. Find out your target market

3. Find out where you can source items/ find suppliers, manufacturers that can supply your chosen items

4. Identify where can you ship to

These are some factors that can help you in starting. 

As a beginner, it would really help if you could use an app that would allow an easier transition and navigation process so you can also proceed and take care of other aspects of the dropshipping business. Why not try Spocket?
