Dropshipping requires your marketing skills. Through your blog posts or social media platforms, you can sell different goods to people. But guess what? Your work ends when your client or buyer makes the payment for the goods. The whole delivery stress is not for you.
Steps to drop shipping
Through your good marketing skills, get a client to place an order for a particular product that you can access.
Get the order and money across to the manufacturer or whole seller whom you’re marketing for.
Once the order is taken and the product delivered, you get paid.
Sometimes, all it takes is to get a higher price from your client and pay lesser to the supplier. For instance, if a client ordered a pair of Crocs footwear at $15, but the wholesale price of the same footwear is $10, instantly, you’ve made a gain of $5.
It isn’t stressful
A client’s order has covered your starting capital.
You may be blamed for the mistakes of the supplier or manufacturing company via late delivery or not getting exactly what was ordered.
To make this business better, you have to liaise with well-trusted companies to avoid been scammed. There are many online shops such as Amazon, Jumia, Shopify, and other private shop owners you can work with.
You must also monitor your clients to avoid the trauma of “what I ordered vs what I got”.
