Dropshipping is a money-saving shipping method that does not require the salesperson to keep goods in stock.
When a consumer purchases an order, the salesperson orders the goods directly from a wholesaler. The customer

low-risk shipping and business tactic because the salesperson has no need to spend large amounts of money on
inventory. It is a highly desirable method for new entrepreneurs because of the high success rate at basically no

and running. Finally, the workload is light due to the wholesaler doing the shipping. A dropshipping method is good
for new entrepreneurs because they can learn as they go without too much risk.
