Drop Shipping



The term "Dropshipping" has become widely known and has become one of the most important business types on the Internet, and many have achieved great success with it.
Drop Shipping is an online business, where the online store does not keep its stock, but has no stock. Once the buyer has placed an order with one of the products displayed in the online store, the store will issue another and the third party (wholesaler or other department store or factory) will ship the product directly to the buyer.
  The profits, therefore, represent the difference between the selling price and the purchase price.
Here is a picture of dropshipping in a simplified way:


Main features of direct shipping

ü  You do not need an online store to start.
ü  Many marketers are using popular online stores as an alternative platform for displaying products, for example, you can use the eBay store as a platform to display AliExpress products so that the eBay visitor does not see your product and place a purchase order.
ü  Bring the product to the address of the buyer:
ü  You can also use social networking sites as a platform to present the products.

                            


Note:
ü  In shopping itineraries, your store does not play a major role in the business process, but just an intermediary.
ü  The main pillars of trade are: the factory that manufactures the product, the wholesaler who buys plants to sell to the retailer and the retailer that sells directly to the consumer.

ü  Your business in the routes of your purchases is simply a channel that connects the consumer to the reseller or manufacturer who provides the route service.
ü  Formatting itineraries does not require a lot of capital.
ü  As a merchant, you will make a purchase from the wholesaler after receiving the purchase order from the consumer (you do not have to keep a stock, it will not take a lot of capital to start, but that does not mean that the creation of an online store entails fees and marketing expenses that you should consider.
ü  Shipping routes represent a completely hidden process for the buyer.
ü  Your own store is the interface that the buyer will deal with, and the product is meant to reach the buyer and cover the name and logo of your store. The buyer in the routing routes will know nothing of the wholesaler of the product, the sale for him comes from your store, which knows no other, and if he is confronted with any problem, he will have resort to you to solve it.
ü  You do not have to rely on a source of products
ü  In shipping routes, you can display thousands of products from completely different sources, which is very important: the diversity of products will attract more buyers and help you sell more.
ü  On the other hand, the diversity of the sources of products may be a source of inconvenience to the buyer (for example, if the buyer has bought two products at the same time, but from two different sources, he will be reasonably entitled to wait for them. arrival at the same time, probably because they come directly from your store). As a trader, you must anticipate and prepare for it.
ü  Formatting paths make the e-commerce process very simple and fast.
ü  The simple idea behind Drop Shipping offers anyone with simple skills the opportunity to enter the world of e-commerce. This is an advantage for you, but also for all your competitors, which leads to a high level of competition on the routes. This will inevitably result in a lower profit margin for good sales.
