How dropshipping works?

1. The retailer “stocks” products on their website or marketplace
2. The retailer doesn’t actually hold these products, they are held by the supplier or wholesaler (who could be anywhere in the world). These products may cost £1 per unit from the supplier, while the dropshipper lists them at £3 each (making a profit of £2 from the sale).
3. When a customer orders a product from the dropshipper’s website, the merchant receives a notification. The merchant then forwards that order to the supplier, either manually or automatically.
4. The supplier fulfils the order and ships it directly to the customer under the dropshipper’s name.

Selling products that are currently popular is one option. In fact, you don’t need to know a huge amount about the product or your audience, just the the product is hot right now. 


Amazon and eBay both have a lot of product data available, you just need to effectively mine it to identify which products are in demand. The best place to start is with the search bar, as this will suggest items that are currently getting lots of searches.
