What is Dropshipping?

Dropshipping is an online store fulfillment strategy in which merchants buy things from third-party suppliers when customers place orders, rather than storing inventory. After that, the items are delivered to the customer directly. This eliminates the seller’s direct involvement with the goods.

When it comes to shipping and order fulfillment, the retail shop manager has very little involvement. The merchant is not required to keep goods on hand, place large orders or physically fulfill orders in any way. Instead, the merchant’s items will be shipped by a third-party provider.

Dropshipping is advantageous to businesses since it requires less operating capital than the typical retail model. You won’t have to open stores, hire personnel, maintain the power, pay overhead, or keep track of inventory. Instead, you establish an internet business and purchase wholesale from suppliers who already have inventory and storage space.
