What is Drop Shipping
Here is the concept. The seller sells a product sold by a partner wholesaler. Once an order is made, the seller passes the order on to the manufacturer and the manufacturer sends the order directly to their customers. The biggest difference between drop shipping and the conventional retail model is that with drop shipping, the person marketing and selling the product doesn’t own the inventory. It allows you as a marketer, to focus on just advertising and selling and leave manufacturing to a company which focuses on just that.
Making money with drop shipping
You are probably asking but how exactly do I make money? The catch here is that because you are buying from a manufacturer and you have an agreement with them, you buy the product at wholesale pricing. You then charge the customer normal pricing and keep the profit. Making money for simply convincing someone to buy a product they already wanted
