What is Dropshipping?

Dropshipping is not a new term, it has been around for quite some time. But there are also misconceptions on what drop shipping really is. We know dropshipping and we understand it. We have been dealing with thousands of legitimate drop ship suppliers for years.

So, the question, what is drop shipping? 


Let's start with terminology. We hear many people state they want to dropship and become a drop ship business. This is wrong! They really mean that they want to be a retailer that uses drop ship suppliers.

Dropshipping is a service offered by (some, not all) Wholesalers. When you use a Wholesaler who offers Drop Shipping you don't have to worry about stocking or shipping products. Instead, when you get an order from a customer, you contact your wholesaler and they ship it to your customer for you. This means you, as a retailer, can sell a variety of products without ever having to stock any inventory whatsoever. This makes drop shipping very appealing for new, small, home-based online businesses. (SOURCE: worldwidebrands)
