These drop shipping companies add on high margins to every single part of the process. Which means you are paying them for all of this and that's why you end up with hardly any profit. The more money you give them, the less money you make. The less money you make, the less marketing you can do and the less successful you become.

This is why so many people fail within the t-shirt printing industry because they don't make any money

which leads to feeling like a failure and ultimately giving up. This is such a shame because it doesn't have to be that way.

And if you don’t ship in huge volumes within short time periods, you end up giving your profit away to all the people involved in the middle. The only answer is to give up on these empty promises that the drop shipping world are offering and accept the fact that there are no shortcuts when it comes to building a successful business that generates money.
