Drop shipping is one work from home business that you can do anywhere. You can even do this if you live in a small space and have no room for inventory.
With drop shipping you don’t have to hold any inventory to send out to your customers.
When you’re working with a drop shipper you list the product, sell the product then once it’s sold you pay the drop shipper their price, they will send the product to your customer. It may only take you a few hours a week to run your business while the amount of money that you can make is high.
So what are the good things about a drop shipping business?
You Have No inventory
If you look around a store you will see that they have thousands of items that you can choose from. While with drop shipping you have none on hand, but you still have thousands of products that you can sell. Everything that you sell will be done through catalogs or photos or even online. You won’t have to worry about storing items, and what to do with items that haven’t sold. All the inventory is at the drop shippers warehouses just waiting for you to tell them who to ship it to. It’s a business that you can be as active as you want to be.
You won’t have to Worry about Shipping
Yes that is correct there is no packing or shipping on your part, the drop shipper will handle this for you. Some drop shippers may be able to even use your business name as a return mailing label. Sometimes your customer will not even know that you are using drop shipping when they receive the package. They think it is shipped directly from your business.
All the Information that You Need For the Products is Supplied for You.
When you are selling a product online, whether at a website, or at an online auction the drop shipper will usually give you several photos, and several different very detailed descriptions that you can use for your advertising of the products. You can use the same description for each listing or use different descriptions.
You Make your Own Prices when Selling
The drop shipper will tell you how much you will have to pay for the products, so you know before listing the item what your profit will be.
You can then charge whatever you feel people will pay. You have no markup rules that you have to go by.
There are many great benefits to having a drop shipping business. You should research it more to see if that is the business for you.
