Dropshipping is the act of selling goods that you don’t own. You only serve as a retailer. You pick a product from a third party website(Aliexpress) placed it on your website/store and when a customer comes to your store and purchase that product, you use that customer money to then go and buy the product from the whole seller and then make the manufacturer to ship the product to your customer. In the end, you don’t see or even touch the product.
There are many platforms through which you can get your dropshipping website up and running within some few hours. You can use Shopify or WooCommerce to create an E-commerce website for nothing or close to nothing. You don’t need to invest a huge amount of money before starting an eCommerce store today.
