In today’s relentless eCommerce markets, it has become common practice for retailers to use drop shipping services when sending their products. As drop shipping costs are usually low, retailers are able to keep their prices competitive and consumers happy.
How Does Drop Shipping Work?
Drop shipping is a simple concept. Essentially, it involves retailers who don’t keep an inventory of goods on hands. Instead, they work with wholesalers that fulfill orders and ship directly to customers when an order is placed.
The general timeline of the process looks like this:
Customer places an order with the retailer -> The order is forwarded to drop-shippers -> Order is prepared and shipped -> Customer receives their order
