During the past years, Dropshipping has emerged as one of the most profitable businesses. It is defined as a technique in supply chain management in which the retailer or any other person, does not keep products and goods in his shop as the stock. Instead, the dropshipper keeps sample products or list of catalogues of products in which he is dealing in. When customer orders product to UK Dropshippers, he transfers customer’s order to wholesaler, distributor or manufacturer, who delivers the product to customer direct from their inventory. Some time earlier Dropshippers were mainly retailers but now-a-days many other people have also started Dropshipping business.

Dropshipping is very easy business as anyone can do it as long as he has good understanding of supply chain management and general know how of market trends. Dropshipping is a home based business and can be operated from any part of the world; the dropshipper only needs a computer, internet and a website to operate this business. UK Dropshippers is now considered one of the most profit generating home based businesses which can reap high profits easily without any investment.

Three kinds of Dropshipping are widely known. “Blind Shipping”, in which no return mailing address is sent to customer, so that customer cannot contact wholesaler. The second type is “Private Label Shipping”, in which product is delivered through wholesaler but return address of dropshipper is also sent. The last type is “Customized Packing Slip” in which dropshipper’s name, company logo and contact information is sent as a return address.

The greatest benefit of Dropshipping is the inventory reduction. The capital money of dropshipper is saved and in case if dropshipper has to pack up the business then he will have nothing to lose. This business has no start-up costs; means that the dropshipper has to pay nothing from his pocket. Loss prevention is another big benefit of this business as the risk of loss is negligible and there is no need to spend costs on preventing it. Chances of broken, damaged or loss inventory are totally zero because dropshipper has no inventory in hand.

There are also no chances of frauds or delayed payments as whenever the customer orders the product; first the money is transferred in to drop shipper’s account then he forwards the order and money to his Wholesale Electronics. The only thing to consider while doing Dropshipping business is to remain up to date with your wholesale supplier and his inventory.
