What is dropshipping?
Dropshipping is a business model that lets you sell your products to customers while the manufacturer/supplier packages and ships the products to your customers on your behalf. It is an excellent method to start selling online without a costly inventory overhead. You set the profit margins and have full control over your business and marketing. Your customer is happy to have found a quality product, your supplier profits from a high volume of sales from dropshippers like you, and you profit for your work bringing the product to a larger market
