SELL WITHOUT STOCK
Dropshipping is for you the opportunity to sell without stock management. The products you choose are actually available on your online shop but the stock is always by your supplier…
1st Advantage : Cash
Since the stock stay by your supplier, you do not have to advance cash as long as you have not sold…You do not have to make any investment, you buy only once you have sold, there is no risk for you !
2nd Advantage : Stock Management
No inventory management, room spare, the stock is managed by your supplier…
3rd Advantage : Delivery
No parcel, you do not have to take care of shipments…You place an order by your supplier who will directly send to our customer the products he has previously ordered…Your customer will not notice anything! Your supplier becomes your logistic partner.
4th Advantage: Size of the offer
Since they do not have to manage any stock, resellers can publish much more products in comparison with the situation if they had to store their products.
For the reseller,
Dropshipping = Security
One has to publish a product on the web and place an order by one’s supplier…Not more…
