How to drop ship online

How to make a direct shipment.

First, let’s explain what dropshipping is. Basically, retail arbitrage is the method of buying low and selling high. You can sell items on selling platforms like eBay, Amazon, or Bonanza. These are online retail platforms that allow sellers to list an item for sale on their platform (website) for a portion of the sale. Each online retailer has a different percentage that they take from each sale.

So now we have these different online retailers that we can sell products to. So what it means to drop ship is that you find hot sale items in an online store that is popular. Then go to whatever selling platform you’re using (Amazon, eBay, Bonanza, etc.) and list that item for sale at a higher price than your source. Then, you create a listing and title that targets online customers who are searching for your item. Once your item is sold on the selling platform you are using, go to your source where you found the item, purchase the item, and ship it directly to the customer who purchased the item from you. So the difference between how much you charged the customer and how much you had to spend to buy the item goes right into your pocket.

The best part is that you didn’t buy anything until someone else bought it for you, and you didn’t have to touch the item. No inventory. It sounds pretty crazy, but third-party sellers account for an incredible amount of sales on these selling platforms. With the number of online shoppers continuing to increase, the need for third-party sellers (drop shippers) will increase. You have to be very professional if you are going to be a dropshipper. You have to be organized and disciplined. The concept is very easy to take the idea and put it into action. The amount of money you can earn depends on how much work you are willing to put in. If you work hard and post a ton of listings, the more items you have available for customers to buy, in return, the more money you can make. More listings = more money.

Once you get into dropshipping, it will take you into a world of different opportunities that you never would have thought of. The world of e-commerce is so big.
