    Completely different fulfilment model Amazon should be more profitable but you need to invest in the right stock, drop shipping, no stock.

    Have you ever used FBA? We use it and I wouldn't call it a big operation by any means. It's also far more profitable than dropshipping.

    Does this only work for orders that are placed through Amazon then? Do I need to keep some of my products in case someone orders from me personally?

    You don't have to keep separate inventory for the outside-of-Amazon buyers. Amazon will take care of those buyer, you just need to submit a fulfillment request to Amazon.:)

    Er.... I think these are a little different, so you have to compare drop shipping and FBA.

    FBA is a way for sellers to let Amazon do all the hard work for them…at least this is how I see it. Somewhat similar is the case with Dropshipping. It is a mode of supply chain management wherein the retailer doesn’t handle fulfillment, but rather forwards customer orders to the manufacturer or warehouse, who then picks and ships the goods ordered, to the customer.
