As a seller we often find ourselves seeking around for different ways to grow our online businesses? But that does not mean that we are a naïve or a newbie. Either way, you need to find a way to sell more products and then ship them to your customers. Have you come across the term Drop Shipping? The following post explains the overall concept of drop shipping.

Drop Shipping is a method that requires setting up your eCommerce shop and have a bunch of reliable suppliers who won’t just take your orders and fulfill them by shipping the products directly to your end customers. And that’s why this business model turns out to be different from default eCommerce fulfillment. Apart from this, here as a retailer, you won’t be owing the inventory which you will be selling to your customers through your eCommerce web store. But what you actually require doing is act like a medium between customer and suppliers, who passes the order received on your store to the suppliers for packing and shipping the order.

How does this work?

The process of drop shipping can be explained in three simple steps:

  • A customer visits your online Magento based store and buys a product
  • Once you have received the order, you forward it to your drop shipper (wholesaler, retailer, manufacturer, etc) whether manually or automatically.
  • Last but certainly not the least, the drop shipper packages the order and ship that to your customer
