What is dropshipping?
This is a quick way to answer this question since the etymology of the word brings a close relation to the way we use the Internet today. Dropshipping simply means ‘from without’ which is very much related to how people communicate with each other over the web. Dropshipping is simply a streamlined version of the traditional retail industry where the retailer takes orders from the customer and does not keep products on display in stock. Instead, the retailer delivers the purchased item directly to the customer from the supplier who then marks up the price according to the wholesale or retail rate plus sales tax.
