For one thing, the amount of profit that you can make dropshipping will be much higher than if you are just an affiliate. With an online store, you get to set your own prices unlike affiliate marketing, where all commissions are fixed. Whenever you make a sale as an affiliate, it's a one off transaction.

Both are good sources of income. However, I suggest you read each of the platform's advantages and disadvantages and see if which one suits you more.

With affiliate marketing, for me this platform is cheaper than dropshipping because all you need to spend money on is the domain and hosting and you can easily start your business once you have created your website.

In dropshipping, aside from website and domain, you may need to also pay some dropshipping fees for your products. Also, you will need time to manage your inventory to see which products are still available or not.
