Selecting products is one of the main steps in dropshipping. Have you ever heard of “evergreen products”? It might be lots of dropshippers’ dream products. Once you list it to your store and run your advertising, then you are good to go. Orders will continuously flow in like snowflakes while you are just chilling at home, relaxing.
However, finding an “evergreen product” isn’t easy. It takes a lot of effects on data analysis and research. In this article, we summarized CJ’s data in the past three years and selected five categories in a total of eight evergreen products.
Clothing for Men and Women
Clothing is a big niche. Ages, genders, categories, styles, occasions, and seasonality are the strong factors that will affect clothing sales. All these factors increased the difficulty of selecting winning products under this category. Based on CJ’s past three years of sales, we select two products, one is a body tummy shaper for men, and another one is high waist shapewear for women.
1. Body tummy shaper
Body tummy shaper for men smoothes and shapes the abdomen to hide the pot belly and muffin top instantly. There are firming panels under the shirt that helps trim and tighten back and stomach parts. It has black and white two colors available in six sizes, stocked in China and USA warehouses. The monthly sales volume of this product is relatively stable at around five hundred.
Last year September and March of this year, both peak sales were exceeding 1k. This body tummy shaper is a lightweight vest, which means it can be sold throughout the whole year without seasonal restrictions. If you are running a general store or a clothing niche store, this product can be your essential product that provides a steady income stream.
2. High waist shapewear
High waist shapewear is the must-have lingerie for women, features shaping zones that target the stomach, and is designed with comfy fabric that provides all-over support. Based on historical data, this product is trending from November to February.
From November 2018 to February 2019, the average monthly sales volume was 50k; in the same period from 2019 to 2020, the average monthly sales record was still over 20k. From the attached picture, this product in CJ already has 365 lists.
Lots of people know well about this product, and the market is quite competitive. Since there aren’t any new products for shapewear in the market, this product will still make a decent sales record this year. Offering customers sets of shapewear like 2pcs or 3pcs can increase some incidental sales.
We all know fitness is the trending niche this year due to COVID-19, but not only this year. Normally fitness products are trending every year in the summertime.
When summer comes, people spend more time on keep in shape. It is well shown in the sales data of this electrical muscle training device. It had an average of one to two hundred sales in summertime 2019 and an average of four to five hundred sales per month in Q2 this year.

Home, Garden & Furniture
1. Chef knife
Home, garden & furniture is one of the big niches in dropshipping. There are two surprising products under this category-chef knives and high-pressure power wash. Let’s check out this chef knife. It’s a 7CR17 stainless steel knife with a wood handle, razor-sharp, and has graceful wavy stripes.

Q4 is the golden season for dropshipping knives. Cold weather plus the holiday season make people spend more time at home with families. And this year’s sales peak period was advanced to Q2 was affected by COVID-19, people were trapped at home to avoid the virus from spreading.

It had a stable monthly sales of about 100 in the rest of the months, almost no sales during the wintertime. Q2 is the golden time to market it, remember to avoid Q4.
Health, Beauty, and Personal Care
Statistics show that 72% of women shop online, and health, beauty, and personal care are the most significant expenditure category. Here are the two selected “evergreen” products.
1. Herb-based essential oil
It is a herb-based essential oil that helps visibly remove dark spots and hyper-pigmentation, boosts cell regeneration, and brightens to reveal natural skin tone. 10ml and 30ml in two sizes and multiple pack sets are available. Let’s compare it with Aliexpress. The same 10ml essential oil with one-month ePacket shipping costs 6.05$.
However, it only takes 4.5$ including shipping in CJ. It had a monthly 1.5k sales in Q4 2018 and Q1 2019. Last year October and November, monthly sales reached 13k and 10k. Since then, monthly sales have stabilized at 1-2k. It will still be promising this year and next year.
2. Correction belt of sitting posture
This physical posture correction can play a good role in correcting sitting posture by simply wearing it during work hours or school time. It can maintain the body’s gravity balance, reduce the burden on the muscles, and relieve sore necks and fatigue caused by wrong postures. There is no limit to age or gender, suitable for young kids to the elderly, men to women.
White, beige, and black three colors are available in a total of seven sizes in CJ. Let’s check how was the sales. The average monthly sales were 1.3k from March to June in 2019, an average of monthly sales from April to June this year was 900 units. The remaining months were stable at one to two hundred sales.
Strongly recommend promoting this product in Q2 since it performed well in the last two years.
Jewelry and Watches
Jewelry and watches are the categories you can’t ignore. June and July are the off-season for dropshipping, and many dropshippers will choose to go on vacation.
If you are still running ads during the off-season, this product will be a great choice. It is a classic style alignment necklace with a 65cm long chain and 5cm pendant, available in silver and gold two colors. Simple and classic styles won’t go beyond the trend.
It is stocked in both China and USA warehouses, and only costs 2.72$ shipped out from the USA with 3-6 days of local shipping. Let’s check how it performed in the past. It had a stable 200 monthly sales volume in June and July this year and last year. This doesn’t seem like much, but it’s better than nothing during the off-season.
There still are many winning products selling like crazy out there in CJ, their sales volumes can reach 20k units, 30k units, or even 50k units monthly.
Such a massive sales volume is only a flash in the pan. You can’t replicate this success in the next quarter or next year. Unlike the short-lived hot selling products, evergreen products’ hot selling patterns are regular and predictable.
