For those of you that are interested in dropshipping, I would like to give you 8 pros of dropshipping. With dropshipping, you are selling items that you do not have – your dropshippin company has them and will ship them out for you when someone buys it from you. Basically, you hike the price up there higher than what the dropshipper is charging and that is how you make profit.
8. No Need for Storage
I like how there is no need for storage when you are dropshipping. This means you do not have to keep a warehouse and you do not have to give up a room in your house.
7. No Packaging Required
With dropshipping, there will be no need to package anything. This saves from the hassle of having to go to the post office each time someone purchase something. The dropshipping company will be sending the package to your customer. Don’t worry, the dropshipping company does not put the price you paid on the box, so your customer won’t even know.
6. Add New Products to Your Listings Quickly
Within no time, you will be able to add new products to your listings quickly. As soon as you come across something you wish to sale, you can add it to your page. This is much better than having to wait for the inventory to come to you.
5. You Make Money
You should remember what you are in it for – the money. Don’t go selling your items at an extremely cheap price. This will cause people to think something is wrong with the items. Of course, you don’t want to put a high price on it either. Make sure you do your research and come up with a fair price.
4. Don’t Have to Worry about Being Left with Unsold Items
With dropshipping, you do not have to worry about being left with those unsold items. This goes in with number 8. If you sell items on eBay, you probably have to have an additional room to store your stuff in. When items do not sell and stick around for awhile, it’s no good.
3. Don’t Have to Worry about Managing Inventory
Of course, you do not have to worry about keeping up with your inventory. This is all done by the dropshipping company. You don’t even have inventory really, until you sell something.
2. Offer a Wide Variety of Products
Needless to say, with dropshipping, you will be able to offer a wide variety of products. This is one of the reasons why I like it so much.
1. Make a Business
For number one, I am going to say a pro to it is that you can make a business out of dropshipping. There are many people that are doing this and I can’t wait to start.
Those are my 8 pros of dropshipping. Of course, I know there are some cons on this, but today, I wanted to focus on the positive and not the negative of things. There is a negative to everything. So, have any of you tried this before?
