Before we look at the program and how it works, let’s talk a bit more about dropshipping so that you know exactly what you are getting into.
Dropshipping is a legitimate ecommerce business that has seen tremendous growth over the last decade. It is one of the best online business to start.
In fact, if you look at the largest online retailer today, Amazon, you might see similarities of their business model with dropshipping.
Here’s how it works:
A customer comes to your website (can be built on Wix, Squarespace, WordPress etc, or anywhere they can view a product, so it can be Facebook or Instagram or some other platform), and purchases an item. As a dropshipper, this order goes straight to your supplier and they dispatch and deliver the item to the customer.
For you, you never have to keep any inventory of the goods. Essentially, you are simply a middleman, a bridge that connects customers and suppliers.
In order to do so, many people turn to Shopify, a software platform that provides dropshippers with almost all the tools you need in order to begin operations and start making money. Also, they would turn to Oberlo, which is an online marketplace to source for suppliers.
