Learn all about Dropshiping
¿How does dropshiping work?
Very simple, with a brief explanation, clear and concise we will see how we grasp this term much faster than we think.
Whether we are the owners of an online store or e-commerce, like if we are thinking of setting up one, we always have to take into account the previous negotiations that we have to carry out.
It will always be necessary to close some type of agreement with a manufacturer or wholesaler that has the product that we want to sell.
The advantages here are several, since we will be able to publish on our online site all the products that we are going to sell. That is, you will not have products in stock, but it will be the wholesaler who sells them through you. Your e-commerce will be, as it were, a mere online space for customers, where they can check both the products and their prices and features.
When someone wants to buy something from your online store, the manufacturer with whom you have agreed will be notified of the purchase.It will be in charge of sending and delivering to the customer the product that he has previously chosen.
You would be the retailer, who acts as an intermediary between the end customer and the supplier or manufacturer.
I cannot tell you the level of earnings, it will depend on many factors that you will have to discover. I live in Argentina I have tried to work with wholesalers in the USA, unfortunately distance complicates the business for me.
I have no doubt that I would advance with dropshiping in more developed countries. For us as sellers making a good agreement, we would surely earn very good money.
Like other members I advise you to seriously investigate the issue, covering all aspects, regulation, local laws, etc. I hope I have given you good ideas.
Dropshipping has been around for a long time. I remember there was a guy back in the 80's who was selling a course on how to do dropshipping. And back then you would have to do copywriting to put ads in newspapers and magazines.
The concept is still the same today. Back then the cost of learning was very steep if you were inexperienced in copywriting. So, lot of it was trial and error, In this day and age with the advent of the internet, I believe that the cost of advertising went down significantly and it's more controlled.
