Dropshipping is a word you don’t come across often so let me explain what it is in this article and further explain what the current model of FaceBook and Shopify Dropshipping actually entails.
What is Dropshipping?
Dropshipping is made up of two main parties.
The seller: Usually owns a store and displays products that can be bought just like any other store. The customer or visitor cannot tell the store is a dropshipper as the front is the same.
The supplier/manufacturer: Fulfils the order. When the seller gets an order, he/she will contact the supplier, pay for the cost of the goods and give the customers address. The supplier will go ahead and ship the product to the customers address, completing the full process of the order.
