What is Dropshipping?

If you have never heard of dropshipping, then the best way to explain this would probably be to remember any large goods you have purchased for your home. Chances are, that you went to the store, placed the order, and the products were shipped to you a week or so later. The store will have used a third-party to store, and ship the goods to your home.

This is basically known as dropshipping

Many companies have been using dropshipping as their business model for decades; it is nothing new, but with the popularity of the internet, the dropship availability, as a business creation concept has opened wide open.

These days, if you wanted to get involved in dropshipping, you could do so just by purchasing an off the shelf website, or by starting a membership with a dropshipper.

How can dropshipping help me?

If you have a desire to start a business, but have no where to hold, or store any stock, then using a dropship company is a great concept. The main reason being, that once you have signed up to a dropshipper, you will then be granted access to a whole inventory of stock to promote. And the great thing is, you never have to see it.

Can you give me an example?

A perfect example of the dropshipping business in operation, would be eBay. Many sellers on eBay use the dropship model to great benefit. It means they can list thousands of products for sale, without even having seen them. Then, when they make a sale on eBay, all the seller has to do, is log into their dropshipper account, and place the order to be shipped directly to their customers.

No hassle, no stock, easy?

Nothing is easy, let's not kid ourselves that it is, but dropshipping is most definitely a valid business model, and one which thousands of people all over the world use to generate a part-time, or full-time income.
