Basically, dropshipping refers to fulfilling orders without actually having the products stocked in your store. Instead, products are bought from a third-party supplier, and shipped directly to the customer from there.
Essentially, businesses that sell via dropshipping don’t actually see their products or ship them to customers – they are acting as a middleman the supplier and the customer. Dropshipping has become increasingly popular in recent years, because it’s (relatively) easy to get up and running, and logistically simpler than a traditional store with products that you have to source, store, and ship.
You can also test different business ideas relatively quickly, and without investing your life savings into each one. All you really need is some basic research, a business idea, a good internet connection, and you’re ready to start dropshipping.
