Dropshipping enables online stores the ability to offer products without having them in inventory. The way it works is, an online store makes a deal with a product supplier where the store sells the products and the supplier sends it out. The online store merchant never has to touch the products themselves. Dropshipping is a retail fulfillment method where a store doesn’t keep the products it sells in stock. Instead, when a store sells a product, it purchases the item from a third party and has it shipped directly to the customer. As a result, the merchant never sees or handles the product.
