Dropshipping is a retail method in which the store does not keep the products it sells in stock. Instead, when the store sells a product, it purchases the item from a third party and has it shipped directly to the customer. Thus, the store owner can run their business without having to invest in inventory, handle storage, or manage the shipment of products. Dropshipping is attractive for new entrepreneurs as it requires less initial capital, less risk, and offers an easier path to starting an online business. Additionally, it provides businesses with the flexibility to offer a wide array of products to their customers.
