How does being a dropshipper work?
My friend referred me to Shopify and I am curious how to start an online business by selling products. Do you specifically have to make the products itself?
Thank you for your inquiry. You do not have to make the products yourself when dropshipping. A drop shipping business is a sales model where sellers accept orders via websites and other sales channels, but don’t carry inventory and ship products themselves. Instead, drop ship sellers use suppliers that ship products directly to customers on their behalf. Thus, drop shippers have no upfront or ongoing inventory, storage, or warehouse staffing costs.
