A Beginner's Guide to Drop Shipping
By: Interloper, Inc
According to N.K. Babar, a spokesperson for BloggerKhan, "The biggest benefit is obvious, that you do not have to keep any inventory yourself. You free up both your time and resources, have a wide selection of products, you are not limited by the location of your business and your customers will receive their orders on time. It also promotes scalability which is a huge perk." " On the flip side, your margins are a little slimmer as the drop shipper charges for his services. " Babar further adds.
Babar elaborates, "In addition to scalability, reduced risk is another major advantage of drop shipping. In a conventional model, you buy in bulk, store the inventory and then sell over time. If you make a bad decision and the market changes on you, you can be stuck with unsold inventory. That can be devastating. Drop shipping helps you lower your risk and to pay for that reduced risk, you have reduced profit margins. "
