“Dropshipping” is a perfect eCommerce model for first time entrepreneurs. “Dropshipping” is a fulfillment model where a store-owner doesn’t buy products in advance and never sees a product. Meaning after you have a buyer, you order from the supplier and then send it to the customer. Some things to keep in mind include not looking for the cheapest price, look for high rated suppliers, supplier responsiveness, Alibaba availability, and to order samples.
- Dropshipping is a low commitment way to make sales for your business.
- Dropshipping allows you to test an items appeal before you stock it in your inventory.
- Once you decide a new product is right for your business, you can stock it in your regular inventory for fast delivery.
