Dropshipping has many benefits
These are some of the reasons you’ll love being a dropshipper.
Dropshipping is easy to start
After you have found high quality products, it takes only a few hours to launch your first dropshipping shop. The process is very simple with Shopify. While you will need to improve your store as you observe how visitors interact with it, it is very simple to get started.
You don’t need to purchase inventory in advance. This allows you to quickly test new product ideas.
To start selling, you don’t have to make huge investments
Dropshipping means that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to open your online shop. Dropshipping doesn’t require that you purchase products upfront. You don’t even need to rent space or invest in inventory to store your products. Dropshipping eliminates many of those costs traditional retailers have to pay.
Dropshipping can be started with just $290. Read our article on the costs of starting a dropshipping business to see how to be smart with a small initial investment in 2021.
Shipping is taken care of by someone else
Dropshipping offers a great alternative to traditional retail business models. You don’t need to worry about shipping and storing your inventory. Dropshipping allows you to be a retailer without having to touch the products you sell. The order is taken care of by your third-party supplier from the moment the customer purchases a product.
Despite this, we recommend that you still check the quality of any product you plan to sell and to order product samples.
Dropshipping is easy and affordable.
- Send your products packed and shipped
- Let a warehouse be yours
- Manage your inventory
- Handle all returns
You can now spend your time polishing your shop and bringing in customers with all that extra time! Speaking of which, here are some tips on how to drive traffic to your Shopify store.
Dropshipping is easy to scale
It’s an easy business to run. You don’t need to worry about being a salesperson. While your business may grow, you might want to spend more on marketing in order to increase sales. However, the nature of your daily tasks will not change.
Sell anywhere you want
Your location will not matter once you start e-commerce. Dropshipping allows you to sell your products wherever you are located as long as shipping costs are reasonable. Read our guide on setting up an international store to learn the best practices of going global.
