Dropshipping is a relatively new way to sell online. Basically you are acting as a middle man. You list someone else's stock, add a markup and make it available for sale on your website. When you sell an item, you simply place an order with the distributor who then sends it directly to your customer.
This lets you sell physical products on the internet that you never have to see, store, package, ship, or even pay for in advance. Dropshipping frees up your money and time so you can concentrate on what really matters, generating sales.
However, generally setting up a dropship business takes either thousands of hours of your own time or costs thousands for a developer to create
