Drop shipping is the method in which products are delivered to a customer through a retailer who doesn’t actually carry the products in stock. The seller accepts payment for the order, but the customer receives the products directly from the manufacturer or warehouse. In drop shipping, the seller is the middleman between the manufacturer and the customer. The seller’s profit is made from the difference between the wholesale and retail price of the products sold. Drop shipping is a convenient way to run a home based business and can also prevent cash from being ‘tied up’ in stock that might not possibly sell, reducing the financial risk.
