But What is Dropshipping?
The Dropshipping is a business model based on the sale through the Internet of products that are not held in stock, through agreements and negotiations with the manufacturer or wholesaler, so that this is the one that sends them directly to the final customer.
In this way, without having to invest in buying your own stock, you can also sell different items or products that you do not physically own.
In practice, for example, if you are the one who decides to set up this type of business, you would be responsible for an eCommerce of Dropshipping, where you would sell products of a third party, which is called: “Dropshipper”.
How does Dropshipping work exactly?
If you already have an eCommerce or are about to start one, through the creation of agreements and negotiations with a manufacturer or wholesaler, you can sell items or products that you do not really have in stock in your online store.
And, the moment a person buys these products in your business, your provider would also receive a notification, so that it is he who sent those customers those products.
In short, the retailer takes an intermediary role in said sale. But, the items purchased in your store, would be sent to customers with their own brand (or even without any identifying sign).
What is the benefit for each of the parties?
The business for the owner of eCommerce, is that you can sell products without stock and earn a commission on the price of the manufacturer or wholesaler.
The benefit to the Dropshipper, is that you can sell more products on the internet without having to worry about positioning and / or managing an online store.
