Are dropshipping courses worth the money in 2024?

Let me start off by saying that most paid dropshipping courses out there are expensive, like $500+.

You will learn below that there are so many ways to learn dropshipping for free.

That's awesome, right?

7 Awesome free YouTube dropshipping courses

Some great information about dropshipping is on YouTube for free.

Just be careful with most of those so-called "gurus."

As I said before, their only goal is to sell you something (like a course).

I suggest watching these videos below, but if you don't like what you see or you already know it, just skip a bit.

Don't forget to take everything from these "gurus" with a grain of salt, and only apply what you like.

Don't think like, "Oh, but he made millions with that super-secret tactic - I need to do exactly that, and I will be rich tomorrow!"

No, you will not.

It takes time and hard work before you succeed; I'm sorry if that crushed your dreams, but you need to treat your dropshipping store like a real business in order to succeed!

Also, most of these "gurus" use Shopify - we cover a lot about Shopify as well - but you can use any ecommerce platform that you like. (You can find Shopify alternatives here)
