Dropshipping is an online business model. With dropshipping, you don’t store product inventory, you purchase products from third-party suppliers as your customers place orders on your online store. Then the supplier ships your products directly to your customer.

Like every business model dropshipping has its own benefits and disadvantages: it’s easy to start and doesn’t require a large initial budget, but lacks control over products and orders.
