Dropshipping involves selling products that are sent directly to the customer from the manufacturer, distributor or supplier. The reseller who sells via dropshipping has therefore no stock nor purchased products in advance to resell. Instead, customer orders are sent to the supplier for delivery. The seller earns money from the difference between the product’s selling price and the wholesale price, less any fees.

A great online opportunity with high margins
Dropshipping attracts many companies and entrepreneurs because the idea of not having to worry about stock and deliveries is very tempting. A very small start-up capital is usually required because you do not have to invest in stocks or products, therefore many new entrepreneurs see this e-commerce method as a great opportunity. Many online business professionals see dropshipping as a better online method compared with affiliate marketing in some senses because it offer higher margins and is less time consuming.
The idea behind the questions is to investigate how to easily sell products in a newly started e-commerce company using the dropshipping method. The business plan partly responds to the question of whether dropshipping is the e-commerce of the future and if it is smart to have a centrally located warehouse for niche e-retailers. Is it best to let another company handle warehousing, packing and logistics? Generally speaking, time is saved and the environmental impact is less due to fewer deliveries.
