Dropshipping

Dropshipping, or “third-party business”, is a form of distribution in which a merchant no longer holds his own goods available, but stores them with a wholesaler and has them shipped via the latter. Since the advent of e-commerce, dropshipping has become increasingly popular as it allows retailers to minimize storage, packaging and shipping costs. In addition, important time is saved for the online trade, as the goods are sent directly from the wholesaler to the customer without any stopovers.

However, when it comes to dropshipping, traders have a lot of responsibility, which is why a reliable and trusting partner is a prerequisite for successful dropshipping.
