What is dropshipping?
Assume that you are well versed in a product and want to sell it online. You have found the wholesaler with whom you could collaborate and thinking about creating your own online store. Everything seems to be established, and suddenly you are confronted with the problem of lack of required amount for the purchase of goods. But it still must be stored somewhere, and pay the salaries of people who will be engaged in the packing and shipping of product to customers. Still need to hire an accountant, pay taxes, and many other complications.
All this can be avoided with the help of dropshipping. In this business you will also act as a mediator between the supplier and buyer of goods, as in the classic scheme. But to pay for your order from the supplier you will be only after receive advance payment from the client. In this case, all the costs of packaging and dispatch of the goods, the supplier will take. Thus, you save time and money on packaging and shipping, and earn on the difference in price.
How it works

The next step will be the placement of the product in your online store. The price you set yourself, but it is higher than the supplier. As a rule, the average price is taken from all the proposals that are on the Internet. Pictures for the item you can take from a search engine or on the official website of the manufacturer. Description is taken there, and it is possible to write (if you think you can make quality selling text).
How vividly you describe your goods and advertise your online store. will directly depend on the number of sales. In the example that you see used such a good move, as the promotional price (“price” crossed out). It will help to attract to the product as much as possible potential buyers.

The key to dropshipping – ask the provider does not specify in the parcel cost of the item and shipping address. As a rule, those who cooperates with intermediaries understand the essence of the business and is willing to comply with this requirement.

It can be passed to the customer, if he have any delivery questions. In any case, to avoid possible misunderstandings, it is better to work with sellers with good reputation and high ratings.
Some sites offer Dropshippers additional bonuses for cooperation. For example, loyalty points of the total order, which can then be used to pay for future purchases.
