Drop shipping is one of the major ecommerce solutions and it has gained popularity since mid 90s. This “supply chain management technique” enables both website owners and online merchants to receive order online and pass it on directly to the manufacturers or even the wholesalers. The customers then receive the ordered goods directly from the wholesaler or manufacturer. As a website owner you can collect the money on the delivery of the order. You can expect good profit since you don’t need to invest for shipping and inventory.
Drop shipping is a good way of earning money especially for people with little capital. It is basically a process where you take care of product promotion and order supply, and the manufacturers or the wholesalers take care of the shipping. Your profit is the difference between the retail price and the wholesale. Many online businesses are opting for multi-channel drop shipping as it helps to reach your potential customers through various channels which in result increases your annual sale.
