    This is why it has to me automated- it simply drive up the sales.

    Worth adding that drop shipping can refer to digital products as well. For example, if you sell digital games, we can speak of digital dropshipping.

    This is the idea we’ve been promoting for a while.

    How does it look like in practice?

    Once the customer has placed an order for a given game in your store, it’s purchased on and then automatically passed on to your customer.

    Some of the benefits include:
    • Higher profit margins imposed on digital products
    • Lowered risk of drop shipper's error on your business
    • Ordering and delivery processes are automated, thereby less time-consuming

    Maybe it is not a best solution but for someone who want to try dropshipping there is an Amazon, you can easily integrate a website with Amazon and sell their products, I dont mean displaying banners etc, but all the Amazon's products like in their e-store or any other e-commerce site, they take care of delivery, payments etc. integration tooks 1 day of work at most and you can sell.

    259 We don’t intend to question your opinion about Amazon - what you say is obviously true. Our aim was to present you with a viable alternative for selling digital products (mainly game activation keys) without excessive upfront costs. In short, you don't have to keep stock to make money ;)

    Drop shipping is absolutely a viable business model, and can be a great option if you're looking to get started as an online seller and have limited funds to invest in stock. It can also help you ship goods to customers in countries that you may otherwise not have considered trading with or thought impossible to trade with.

    We are in the process of setting up Europe's first ever branded sportswear only drop ship website. It is due to launch in August this year.

    To find out more you are welcome to book a 15 minute live appointment with us. You can schedule a time to suit you. Here's the link to our booking form >>

    No mention of the upfront capital you'd require on hand to first purchase the stock you are dropping? To make $100k a year would require you to have something like $900k cash (or loans, god help you) lying around to cover stock purchases and seasonal (Xmas) cash flow concerns Bluestacks TextNow VPN

    If you started out with an initial $3k injection, and could manage seasonal cash flow, it would take around 20 years to grow to 6 figure profits. Plus E-commerce margins are being eroded by giants like Amazon...
