Starting a dropshipping business is inexpensive to begin with, which is one of the reasons that so many new entrepreneurs get interested in it. Traditional businesses require a stock of inventory, display space, employees and high overhead costs.
A consumer makes a purchase from a dropshipping business and the warehouse and has the product shipped directly to the consumer. If there are any issues with shipping or the product arrival is problematic, typically the supplier will still be responsible for the basics and can handle any returns or replacements.
Obviously, the consumer has to find the products and have a way to purchase them. It’s true that a new dropshipping company can start out trying to make some money quickly without great expense.
