Selling online is all the craze these days, be it dropshipping, selling through custom eCommerce store or online marketplaces like Amazon and eBay. A large number of Aussie sellers are already running successful online businesses and in this blog post we will cover up basics of selling on eBay as well as few strategies for achieving success while doing so.
The traditional method of selling and commerce involves buying a large amount of stock from wholesalers and manufacturers, which is kept in warehouses and sold in stores. A customer comes in to store, select the product and buys it.
With the rise of eCommerce and subsequent reduction in shipping times, streamlined fulfillment and hassle-free payment solutions, a new model arose named as dropshipping. Dropshipping is a fulfillment method where a seller doesn’t keep the stock of products it sells. Instead, when a product is sold, the seller 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. All this is possible because of ease of carrying out transactions online and a fully track-able shipment solution.
