If you have ever bought a product online to give to someone who is far away and decided to have the shipment sent directly to that someone's address, you have most likely used the DropShipping method. We tell you everything you need to know to take advantage of this method and grow your business.

What is Dropshipping?

Dropshipping. It is a different form of ecommerce or electronic commerce where you are in charge of attracting and serving the customer, closing the sale and invoicing it and the wholesaler or supplier (or DropShipper) is in charge of storing, packaging and shipping the products directly to your customer! That is, you sell, get paid and the supplier or DropShipper, packs and ships the merchandise for you.

DropShipping is a logistics method. The term comes from the English drop, which means “little by little, in drops” and “shipping,” which means shipping.

This can be done online or not because technology has nothing to do with DropShipping, which is pure logistics. But in general, websites take advantage of DropShipping to offer products without having to invest in merchandise (just like you do with your catalog business), or in packaging and shipping the products.

Take Advantage of DropShipping and Grow Your Business

How much time and money do you invest in receiving the merchandise, reviewing it, repackaging it and resending it? What if I told you that you can save one of the two shipping costs, you don't have to designate a space for the merchandise in your home or business, you avoid dealing with packaging, labels, taking things to the mail or to your client's house? The solution is DropShipping.

Growing your business with DropShipping today is a simple and very ecological task. With this form of commerce, you will be able to grow your business saving time and money without any risk and you will avoid dealing with the problem of shipping logistics.

How DropShipping works

DropShipping is very simple. You sell, the customer purchases your products and once you receive their payment (and as in catalog sales), you place your order but specify that the shipment(s) be made directly to your customer(s). The wholesale supplier is the one who must make the corresponding shipment to your client. Therefore, you transfer the responsibility of this task to DropShipper.

In order to take advantage of the DropShipping method, you will need to work with wholesale suppliers who offer it. Companies like Intima.

How to Grow your Business on the Internet with DropShipping

If you want to sell online or if you already sell online, but you don't have space to temporarily store the merchandise, or you simply don't have the time to deal with shipping, consider using the DropShipping method.

These are the steps to follow:

  1. Define the platform where you sell or where you will sell online. It can be your own website, your Facebook page, or even a store on Amazon or Etsy.
  2. Find out who DropShipping the products you want to sell (We'll give you a hint: Intima!) ;)
  3. Find out how to be your representative and sell your products using DropShipping.
  4. Sign up to be an independent representative and sell your products.
  5. Once your application is approved, set up your online shop (if you don't already have it), upload the products to it, with photos, descriptions (we advise you to create your own descriptions so that they are more personal) and their prices.
  6. Now promote your online store and let's sell!

If you are thinking about using this DropShipping method, we bring you some additional recommendations to keep in mind.

- Find out what the shipping times are.

- Investigate the purchase conditions, mainly if there are minimum quantities and the payment method(s).

Your job will then be reduced to offering the products, promoting your business, receiving and collecting orders, placing your purchase orders with your supplier and checking with your customers to make sure they have received them and are happy with their purchase. Simple, right? What are you waiting for to grow your business even more with DropShipping?
