I have also come across a good number of dropshipping websites in Nigeria, and having run their scam analysis, many are legit and safe to deal with.

This article will help you to successfully start a drop shipping business in Nigeria. Before we begin, we will run a little comparison of the drop shipping and the classic retail mode.
In these two models, you do not necessarily need a model or stock. You just act as the middleman, and may not even get to see the products. However, they require a little star-up capital, or upfront, for the purchases of the goods. This is unlike affiliate marketing, where all you do is generate sales and earn commissions. The drop shipping business is entirely different and we will see how to start it in Nigeria.

With so many suppliers in Nigeria and even much more in China, you should not have much issues with this. However, you need to be sure you are with someone legit before you get scammed.
Also make sure they supply genuine products to avoid ruining your career and you can do some background checks and researches before starting the business. Alibaba and ChinaBrands are among the biggest online suppliers for the dropshipping business.

- Choose a platform

This is also another very essential part of the dropshipping business. You will need to get a platform on which you will be marketing your products.
Some of the most popular platforms include:
Your website: You can purchase a hosting space and domain name from BlueHost or WhogoHost and create your website (or hire someone to do that). After you install the Woocommerce Wordpress theme, it was designed for e-commerce websites and then you install the Alidropship, a Wordpress plugin that functions just like Oberlo. 
E-commerce stores: There are so many e-commerce stores in Nigeria now, such as the Jumia.com and Konga.com on which you will post your businesses and wares to attract buyers. You can also create an e-shop on Shopify for marketing your products.
Facebook pages: Thanks to recent developments in the world largest social network, you can now create a Facebook page and use it as a marketing tool for your products.
