Drop Ship It: How to Start Your Drop Ship Business?

If you are looking for an easy way to profit online, you must have considered drop shipping. This way to sell online has gained unparalleled popularity over several years and doesn’t seem to yield. Why so? Let’s see.

What is drop shipping?

Drop shipping is an online-business model according to which retailer doesn’t stock all the inventory. In fact, you only display the goods on your store and send orders to your suppliers. And they send the purchased goods directly to your customers.

What will you get of it?

  • You can start your online business without any previous investments. No need to buy hundreds of bags if you want to begin selling them
  • You don’t have to bother about shipping of products to the customers. The supplier will see to it
  • You won’t have to deal with heaps of never-sold shampoos or umbrellas, you don’t even get to touch the products you sell
  • You get a good profit from the price difference, all for just placing products on your website and promoting it
  • If you sell your own goods, it’s a risk-free way to expand your product catalogue and offer your customers something new
  • You can spend more time on the promotion and management of your store thus engaging much more customers

Drop shipping is like sharing duties. While you carry out marketing and sales, your suppliers take on their shoulders production and timely shipping to the end user.

How to start drop shipping on your own?

Ok, I get it, everything sounds quite nice, but how can I start my own drop shipping business?
Well, it’s not difficult:

  1. Think what you wish to sell and set up your web store. You don’t need to be a programming genius to do that. There are loads of free and paid open source and hosted shopping platforms that make building a store as easy as 1, 2, 3.
  2. Choose your supplier. If you don’t know where to find one that is not a scam, try some of the numerous drop shipping services. They will provide you access to thousands of verified legitimate wholesalers and manufacturers. Such drop shipping services work in different ways. Some of these are directories that just give you access to their verified list of suppliers. Others are a catalogue of goods which you can import to your store. You choose what you wish to sell and place these products on your store. The rest: communication with the suppliers, orders, shipping and other stuff is covered by the drop shipping service. You just regularly get product feeds, send orders and receive profit.
    Take your time to compare different suppliers, pay attention to the wholesale prices it offers, shipping methods and fees. Double and triple check your supplier company, require a return policy and shipping tracking, provide shipping details to your customers. This really matters and will save you from the complaints and problems with damaged products.
  3. Populate your store with products from your supplier. Keep in mind that you will receive product feeds with the updates regularly, so a perfect solution out would be to find a way to automate this process. You can set up File2Cart Scheduled Import and the product feeds will be automatically transferred on the days and time you specify.
  4. Get orders from your customers and send them to your supplier. You will receive a tracking number for each of them to follow the shipping process. Don’t forget to send these details to your customers.

Finally, here comes the most interesting and pleasant part - selling and getting profit from your online store.
This is it. Have a profitable and enjoyable business!
