There are literally thousands of ordinary people, many like you, who have started earning an income on the Internet. These people did not invent any great new invention, nor do they make their own products. In fact, they don’t even stock the products they sell! How is this possible? It is easy to do with a drop shipping business.
So how does one get into the drop shipping business? It’s actually very easy – you can do it with your own web site, or even without a web site by using services like eBay or Squidoo. Set up a PayPal account, put your products out there, and you are in business. But where do the products come from?
The technique of drop shipping has been around for years – even before the advent of the Internet. The way it works is simple – you advertise and sell the products- and your drop ship supplier ships the orders to your customers – with your company name on the paperwork. The customer does not know or care that the product did not ship from you directly.
The advantages of the technique are obvious – no inventory overhead, so warehouse, no shipping headaches. You need to use a reliable source to find your suppliers, however. Avoid web sites that want to sell you products directly, only buy direct from the company that actually sells or distributes the products normally. You will be surprised how many product makers will agree to dropship their products.
