1- What Is A Niche Store:
Niche means category, which is a group of people interested in one specific thing, like example: jewelry, clothing, fishing, hunting, tennis, football, pets and so on.
Some niches are broad like Pets, while other are small like Shark Lovers.
A niche store, is a store build around one niche, (ex: pet store, jewelry store...).
- Products Number: Some niches has many products, while other has very few products to promote.
- Products Update: Some niches has daily new products (ex: jewelry) while others need weeks even months to see new products.
- Buying Online: Some niche audiences love to shop online, while others prefer shopping from physical stores (ex: buy used cars)
- Dropship Friendly: Some niches woks best for dropshipping, while others are not so good.
2- what is a general store:
A General store is a store that does not focus on one specific niche, but it target a broad niche (ex: healthy care) or even every niche like amazon.
In dropshipping, you may rarely see a store like amazon, but u can see a general dropshipping store that target the broad categories like "health care + sport + outdoor + home Improvement + Clothing..."
3- Niche VS General Store:
There is no right or wrong answer here, some people start with general store , and test different niches and products, and once they found a good niche, they build a store around it, some people even build a one product store around that good product from one specific niche.
While others know what they want (past experience in life) and choose a specific niche from the beginning.
Even without past experience, you can pick a niche from my list bellow, they are niches that prove to work very well with dropshipping, also they meet all the niche characteristic we mention above.
