How to Start a Drop-Shipping Business with Shopify and Oberlo

Drop-shipping is one of the best business model ever introduced. For most suppliers, millions of products are sold basically through the drop-shipping method.

In definition, drop-shipping is a retail fulfillment method where a store doesn’t keep the products it sells in stock. Instead, when a store sells a product, it purchases the item from a third party and has it shipped directly to the customer. As a result, the merchant never sees or handles the product.

The biggest difference between drop-shipping and the standard retail model is that the selling merchant doesn’t stock or own inventory. Instead, the merchant purchases inventory as needed from a third party – usually a wholesaler or manufacturer – to fulfill orders.
