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.
