What is dropshipping?

Dropshipping is an ecommerce business model that allows you to sell goods online without keeping or handling the stock yourself. When a customer makes an order it is packed and shipped straight from the supplier's warehouse.

Why is dropshipping popular?

There are many benefits to dropshipping that make it an attractive business idea for entrepreneurs.

Low start-up costs

Setting up a dropshipping business only requires a laptop, the internet, and a subscription to a dropshipping programme. As the supplier takes care of your customer orders, dropshipping allows you to focus on the marketing, branding, and advertising aspects.

No warehouse needed

One of the biggest expenses associated with ecommerce is renting and managing warehouse space. With dropshipping, however, you don't need to worry about paying for the storage of your inventory or paying someone to pack orders.


Decide which niche market you want to target, which products you want to sell, and how many hours you want to dedicate to your dropshipping business. You can be a beginner or an expert in marketing and ecommerce - dropshipping is suitable for anyone with an interest in online retail.
