What is Drop Shipping?

Drop shipping is an order fulfillment method in which products are sold to end consumers and sourced directly from suppliers. The lucrative model allows anyone to start or expand an eBay, Amazon or e-commerce business without investing a single cent on stock. Never before has it been so easy for anyone to instantly start selling products for profit without having to invest huge amounts of upfront cash. With drop shipping, you focus on driving sales while everything else (including postage and packaging) is done for you. It’s the ultimate business model, particularly for newbies to the world of e-commerce.

How Does the Drop Ship Model Work?

The way drop shipping works is simple. Find a supplier using a directory like Wholesale Frog and list their products for sale on eBay, Amazon or your own website for a marked up price. When a sale comes in, purchase the item directly from the supplier for the lower price. The supplier will then ship the product directly to your customer and you keep the profit in-between. It’s a win/win for all parties involved. Learn more.

List Products

List the suppliers products for sale on eBay, Amazon or your own website for a higher price.

Process Orders

When a customer places an order, purchase the item from the supplier for the lower price.

Item is Shipped

The supplier ships the item directly to your customer in plain packaging with no paperwork.

You Earn a Profit!

You keep the profit in-between e.g. sell the item for £30 and buy it for £20 – earn £10 profit.

The Benefits of Drop Shipping

Drop shipping has an endless list of benefits. Unlike the traditional method of running an e-commerce business you won’t have to purchase stock upfront. Furthermore, the supplier handles the order fulfillment side of the business which gives you more time to focus on driving sales, dealing with customers and building your business. Learn more about the benefits of drop shipping.

No buying stock upfront

You won’t ever need to spend a single cent on stock. Products are only purchased after they’ve been sold to an end customer.

Postage is done for you

All of the postage and packaging is done for you, giving you more time to focus on what matters most – generating sales.

No holding any stock

You can grow your business at a rapid rate without having to worry about storage space or being stuck with unsold items.

Run the business from anywhere

You can run your business from anywhere in the world. You could be sitting on a beach in Hawaii and your business will still tick over like clock-work.

Minimal start-up costs

Starting a drop shipping business requires minimal investment, you won’t need to empty your bank account or seek a loan to get things off the ground.

Returns are easy to deal with

Returns are much less of a hassle to deal with when you’re drop shipping. In fact, usually the item can be sent directly back to the supplier.
