Drop shipping is a business setup where an entrepreneur is enabled to run their own store without any prior investment. A drop shipper sells products on their store or any marketplace, once the item gets sold, they will buy it from the supplier, who will ship that product directly to the customer.
Let’s take a real-life example to help you understand the whole procedure in detail. Let us assume that our product is a Faucet.
As a seller, you sell a Faucet on your website or any other platform for Rs. 1000 + Rs. 150 for shipping and handling charges. Your buyer places the order and pays you a total of Rs. 1150.
You would then log in to your account on our Dropship site and place the order for the same faucet for Rs. 750. You keep your profit margin in between the sales and purchase price for the faucet. In this case, the profit is Rs. 250.
Once the order is placed we ship the faucet to your customer with your given details and provide you with a tracking number. The item gets delivered to your customer and the transaction is completed. It is as simple as it sounds.
With this, you save yourself from the hassle of sourcing, managing physical inventory, packaging, shipping, setting up a warehouse and other miscellaneous issues and start your online business in no time.
When a seller sells the products on various platform and the product is shipped directly by the supplier without the seller coming in direct contact with the physical product, this process is known as Drop shipping and the seller is called Drop Shipper.
