Did you know that in 2018, eCommerce in North America grew by 16% to over $500 Billion*? That’s with a “B” – Billion dollars!! Think about it… How often do you buy things online? Not just clothes, but groceries, take out, parking spots, coffee… the list goes on and on. As a whole our society is getting better and better at buying products online. Are you ready to start getting a piece of that “Billion” dollar industry?
“Yes,” you say! But, wait… you don’t have anything to sell. Hmm.
Well, that is where the beauty of Dropshipping comes into play. You no longer need to worry about making a product to begin selling products online.
“Wait, what?” you think.
Dropshipping allows you to partner with suppliers that already have a product inventory. What’s more, these suppliers are more than willing to create, package, and ship their products for you.
“Ok, how does that work?” you might ask.
Essentially, you market and promote these products on your website for the full retail value. Customers come onto your website and purchase the products, of which you get all that money. Then, you turn around and buy that same item from the supplier at a wholesale price (that means it’s less than what the customer bought it for). So, you keep the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price.
When you buy from the supplier, you provide your customer’s shipping address. The supplier processes the order and ships the product to your customer. You don’t ever need to see or handle the product; the supplier takes care of all that for you.
“So, there must be a catch, right? I mean, this sounds way too easy,” you bemuse.
Well, it is that easy. Dropshipping is awesome because there is little risk. You don’t need to worry about purchasing a large product inventory, and then try to sell it off (think of brick and mortar shops or Mary Kay…) That also means that you can get started with your very own online shop with very little money investment.
“No money down, and very little risk! There has to be a downside?” you wonder.
Not really. All you need to focus on is marketing the products and finding customers.
“I can do that!” you think. “How do I get started?”
The first thing you will need to do is build or buy a website. Then, you need to partner with suppliers that are willing to dropship their products for you. And if you plan to do this on your own, it might take you several days or weeks to find the right website, find the suppliers, figure out how to access their feed, how to integrate the products onto your website, how to order the products from the suppliers once a sale goes through, etc etc.
Or, you can sign up with SellStream, and we will do all this hard work for you.
Other companies will build you a website, but then you have to sign up for an account with their Dropshipping integration, and then sign up for an account with the suppliers. And then you have to integrate Dropshipping products into your website, which can be very confusing. If you are like most of the world, you don’t have hours and hours to figure out all these processes. You have a life to live.
