Dropshipping: Pros and Cons

Dropshipping is an affordable way to start your business. It is good because it gives you the opportunity to organize your business even with a limited budget. At the beginning you will only need to spend money on creating a quality online store website and promoting it. Of course, you can save money on the site by using free constructors for its creation. In this case, the work of the web-resource can leave much to be desired, which will negatively affect the attraction of buyers. In addition, a slow and uncomfortable site will be more difficult to promote, and this will bring unnecessary costs.

HLTS Co. Ltd. has selected for you the pros and cons of working in this business model.
A Tip
Do not sell items blindly. First, order at least one unit of the product you want to sell. At the same time, check the integrity of the supplier: how quickly the goods are shipped and delivered, how well they are packed. You need to know everything about the goods you sell.
Advantages of dropshipping
  • Does not require large upfront costs. You don't have to buy the first batch of goods because they are in the supplier's warehouse. This minimizes the chance of going bankrupt. When you get the money from the customer, you pay your partner.
  • Logistics and warehousing are not your headache. You don't have to store the goods in your warehouse. This is done by the supplier. He will also take care of the delivery of the order.
  • You don't need to hire employees. At least until you can no longer handle the volume of orders yourself.
  • You can quickly expand and change the assortment because you can work with a large number of suppliers.
  • Dropshipping does not depend on time and place. Modern technology makes it possible to automate the order transfer system. You can safely travel and even be busy with another job, but orders will still come in.
  • There is no need to worry about legal issues, accounting, etc. These are all handled by the supplier or manufacturer. Your job is to create interest in the product and sell it.
Disadvantages of dropshipping
  • Lack of flexibility. It is impossible to make some interesting offers, discounts, as the supplier or manufacturer is responsible for pricing.
  • More competition. This business model attracts many entrepreneurs because it does not require large start-up investments. However, high level of competition is characteristic not only for dropshipping, but for modern business in general, as many markets are overcrowded with goods, brands and manufacturers.
  • Sudden refusal of the customer from the order. You have to return the money and negotiate with the supplier to get your money back.
  • The supplier may disappoint you. If he fails to deliver the goods on time or the customer receives them damaged, all claims will fall on you. In addition, the supplier can steal your customer by using the contacts you are given when you order and communicate directly with him to offer his goods and services.
