Drop shipping is a retail fulfillment model that allows you to purchase products individually from a wholesaler and ship them directly to your customer. Instead of purchasing a large number of products, you simply go into partnership with a drop shipping supplier and list their merchandise for sale. Then, once you get a buyer/receive an order, you forward it to the supplier for fulfillment. The supplier will ship the product directly from their warehouse to your customer, and charge you only for the price of the shipped item (product). The drop shipping model has some number of advantages. Apart from being easy to start with low capital and low risks, locational flexibility coupled with wide range of product selection are also some of the reasons why drop shipping is a great business. However, one must be cautious of some factors to ensure a successful drop shipping business. Dealing with many customer and supplier errors which may affect delivery should be properly tackled. This book contains detailed information that can help you successfully run an e-commerce business. It will also teach you all you need to know about the drop shipping model, which will also help you run a successful e-commerce business. So take your time to read all the information in this book and try to use it as a guideline, most especially when you are new in the e-commerce world.
eBay, Amazon, Etsy, & Fiverr So many choices How do you decide? Which site is right for your online business? Many books promise to share the secrets to getting wealthy selling online. They tell you to sell this or that product, or to try this top secret listing method, or to sign up for this course. But, that's all they are - promises. Sell It Online is different. It's written by a real eBay Power Seller and Top Rated Seller. One who's been selling on eBay and Amazon for over fifteen years. Most importantly, Sell It Online doesn't make any crazy promises that you'll make a million dollars overnight selling on any of these sites. It's not going to happen. It also doesn't tell you that you can make three thousand dollars a month following my method, because those kinds of promises don't make sense. Anyone can make money selling online. But, you aren't going to make a fortune following someone else's plan.
