I won a Costume Hire and sales store in Linden,Randburg, South Africa. I would like to ask you, is it possible to run a successful ecommerce store selling via other stores products without having to keep the stock on hand myself. There is such a HUGE demand for party dressup items/superheroes etc to buy but I do not have the capital to stock in a warehouse all the items myself. Any info you can offer would be most appreciated.February 7, 2018 at 9:18 pm #159788
Yes, that ecommerce model is called drop shipping and is very popular. The key to making it successful is having a drop shipping supplier that’s reliable. You’ll need to find one in your geographic area or one that ships there. Once you have your supplier or suppliers, you build your website and market your goods. When you make a sale, your dropship supplier ships the order for you. Here’s more about how the drop ship process works.
