Dropshipping: advantages, disadvantages Dropshipping is the sale of goods that are already in the United States and can be resold at a higher price through Amazon. The sales process looks like this: the seller finds the product from the manufacturer and lists it on Amazon, making his own markup; the buyer orders the product; the seller receives money and confirmation is sent to the client, after which the seller buys the product from the manufacturer, giving the shipping address specified by the buyer; the manufacturer sends the product to the buyer. Thus, the buyer gets the desired product, the manufacturer gets his price, and you get a margin. ⠀ Benefits of dropshipping: ▪️Low start-up capital. To start sales, $100 will be enough for you. ▪️The goods do not need to be purchased in advance and stored in the warehouse. ⠀ Disadvantages of dropshipping: ▪️Low markup. Only with a low margin will you be able to compete. ▪️You cannot assess the quality of the products you sell blindly. It is also impossible to control delivery times. ▪️Violation of the stated conditions will result in negative reviews that will pour into your account. A damaged reputation is hard to overcome and will keep you from adding clients. ▪️The strategy involves laying out a huge range of products at the same time - thousands of items to make money. Selling successfully requires thousands of unique product descriptions with photographs. ▪️You must conduct all negotiations on a daily basis (customer-seller, seller-manufacturer), which will require knowledge of English. ▪️Difficult to delegate business. ▪️Manufactures do not want to be a link in the chain, when they can supply this product directly to the retail buyer. ▪️The risk is great.
