New to digital business or trying your hands online with your small or medium business, “Dropshipping” is the thing for you!
What is Dropshipping?
Dropshipping is a retail fulfilment process in which a store doesn’t have to keep the products in stock. Instead, the seller acquires inventory as needed from a third party wholesaler or manufacturer to fulfil orders.
Benefits of Dropshipping
Dropshipping is a great business model for aspiring entrepreneurs to start with because it’s low cost and accessible. Here are a few other reasons why dropshipping is a successful and popular model.
- Less Investment: With the dropshipping model, you don’t have to purchase a product unless you’ve already made the sale and have been paid by the customer.
- Easy Kickstart: Running an e-commerce business is much convenient when you don’t have to deal with physical products. Dropshipping allows you to be worry-free about:
- Managing a warehouse
- Packing and shipping
- Tracking inventory
- Handling returns
- Managing stock
3. Business from Anywhere, Anytime: A dropshipping business can be run from anywhere with an internet connection. As long as you can communicate with suppliers and customers with ease, you can run and manage your business.
4. Easier Testing – The ability to list and potentially sell products before committing to buying a large amount of inventory.
