As the last quarter of the year (Q4) is fast approaching, we need to prepare our dropshipping stores. With that said, Halloween is just around the corner, and we need to ‘spook up’ our products to increase sales.
If you are not already familiar with Halloween, it is a special holiday celebrated on the 31st of October every year. With high enthusiasm, kids and adults await Halloween events full of costume parties, carved pumpkins, and spooky decorations.
With that in mind, there is a huge demand for Halloween products one month before Halloween. Thus, we must fill our dropshipping listings with trending Halloween items. So, whether we’re just a beginner or an experienced dropshipper, this is an event we should take advantage of to optimize our profits.
Essentially, we can start Q4 with a bang by offering these products. As such, we’re going to cover the 15 best-selling Halloween dropshipping products in this article so that you can reap the rewards.
Why Should I Dropship Halloween Products?
Before we reveal the best-sellers, let’s discover why we should dropship Halloween products. Many people perceive Halloween as one of the best times to create fun memories with family and friends as well as bring out their inner creativity.
Therefore, there is a high demand for Halloween products every year, ranging from costumes, figurines, decorations, and more.
In 2021, Statista reported that consumers in the United States would spend a whopping ten billion U.S. dollars for the Halloween season. Although this is an all-time high record, sales in 2022 will reach even greater heights based on the upward trend in the market data.
Furthermore, as dropshippers, we must stay relevant and competitive in the market. And, the best way to do so is by updating our stores with the latest trends. Additionally, even if we have a niche store, we can still provide Halloween-themed products.
For instance, if we are a pet niche store, we can offer pet Halloween costumes. Similarly, if we have a home decor niche store, we can sell Halloween-themed decor.
Overall, we have an excellent opportunity to cater to this rising demand. Moreover, as long as we update our stores with trending products, we can continuously multiply our profits.

Additionally, with the recent publicity of the actor playing Jack Sparrow, the costume is in high demand this Halloween. Since the character is a pirate, his complete outfit includes a patterned red head scarf, brown coat, a blue vest, an ivory pirate shirt, and gray pants.
Plus, we can add other additions such as a sword belt, waist belts, and a brown pirate hat. Furthermore, with these movie-accurate pirate clothes, this costume will be popular to wear at parties and cosplays.

1.4 Pet Costume: Wizard
Dressing up pets is cute, but it’s on a different level for Halloween! What’s cuter than a dog or cat dressed in a Wizard costume, ready to take on the evil in Hogwarts? Generally, the pet wizard costume includes two items, the wizard cape and the wizard hat.
As such, it is easy to put on and store for future usage. Plus, some wizard costumes also feature a light-up collar which enhances the look of the costume. Besides that, we can add the wizard costumes in different colors and designs.
Moreover, most dropshippers will focus on adults’ and kids’ costumes for Halloween. That’s why pet wizard costumes are an ingenious idea that is not readily available everywhere. Thus, we can differentiate ourselves from the competition and gain huge profits this Halloween.
Beginner’s Tip: When we list the pet Wizard costume, ensure to include a size chart. To clarify, size charts help customers find the perfect costume size for their pets.
2. Scary Bats Wall Stickers
Up next on our list, we have Scary Bats Wall Stickers. These scary bats’ wall stickers are stickers cut out in the shape of flying bats that can be placed on walls. Since the stickers are not attached with solid adhesive, they are easy to apply, reposition, and remove.
Additionally, we can modify them into different designs by changing their wing angles. Also, the stickers are easy to apply on hard surfaces like ceilings, doors, and glass. With that in mind, these scary bats’ wall stickers are a fun addition to other Halloween decorations.
Beginner’s Tip: Look for scary bats wall stickers made of waterproof and eco-friendly materials. On top of that, try to find stickers made of sturdy and durable materials as they can be used for a longer period of time.
3. Inflatable Outdoor Ghost
If your customers are serious about Halloween decorations, the Inflatable Outdoor Ghost won’t disappoint them. In short, the Inflatable Outdoor Ghost is a blow-up doll that resembles a ghost.
Since this decoration is for the outdoors, it is made of waterproof and fade-resistant fabric. Additionally, they come in both smaller sizes and ones that reach 6-meters high. In any case, it is better to add multiple variations to increase our chances of sales conversions.
Furthermore, they come with color-changing LEDs to catch the attention of guests and neighbors. Therefore, this Halloween Inflatable Decoration is great for outdoor use as a garden or backyard decoration at Halloween parties.
4. Spider Webs & Fake Spiders
Do you know who doesn’t like spiders? Pretty much everyone. They make people jump and run for their lives. And because of that fear, the Spider Webs & Fake Spiders are perfect additions for creating a terrifying Halloween setting.
The tangle-like web can be attached to windows, doorways, and furniture. Similarly, it can be placed on walls, ceilings, and trees with its hook.
Once the spider webs are attached, some fake plastic spiders can make the decoration even more realistic. If spooky Halloween decor is on your list of things to dropship, you should add these creepy crawlers to your dropshipping stores.

Thus, they are a high potential product that can help us gain significant profits.
10. Foam Graveyard Tombstones
If the above Halloween products weren’t spooky enough, then the Foam Graveyard Tombstones can solve that problem. These high-quality foams shaped and designed as graveyard tombstones are a great product to dropship.
Although Foam Graveyard Tombstones portray a deadly experience, they are lightweight and easy to move. Moreover, the foam tombstones include several metal stakes to secure them in the ground.

Automate & Scale Your Halloween Dropshipping Store
Great, now we have the 15 best Halloween dropshipping products list. As such, the next step is to list these products in our online store. In other words, we need to import them, which can be done either manually or automatically.
To clarify, manually importing Halloween products can be tedious and time-consuming. That’s because we need to add product titles, images, and descriptions to our stores from the supplier’s website.
On the other hand, we can save this time and effort by using AutoDS’ automated product importing methods. With that in mind, here are the four product importing features of the AutoDS dropshipping software:
- One-click importer
- Single product uploader
- Multiple URL/IDs
- Bulk importer
Single Product Importer
To show how easy the product importing methods are, we will focus on the single product uploader as a demonstration. In a nutshell, the single product uploader lets us import a single product in just a few seconds. So, let’s see how to use it!
First, copy the Halloween product’s URL or ID from the supplier page. In this case, we are using an AliExpress product link.
Second, head to the AutoDS platform and click on ‘Add Products’ on the top left menu. From the dropdown options, select the ‘Single Product’ option. Upon selecting the option, a dialog box will appear. Next, paste the product’s URL and choose the ‘Edit Now (Quick)’ button.
After this step, the software will upload the item’s details on the draft page. To elaborate, the draft page is where we can optimize products before listing them in our stores.
When importing products, we should optimize them to stand out from our competitors. Also, when we optimize our products, they have a higher chance of ranking in the search engine results. As such, the optimization process includes editing the product’s description, tags, images, and more.
When you’re ready to import the product to your dropshipping store, click ‘Save and Import.’ Now, the items will be imported to the ‘Products’ page from the draft page.
Finally, the process is complete, and customers can buy the Animated Halloween Skull Bowl in our stores. As we can see, AutoDS’ Product Importing process makes adding products quickly to our stores much easier.
