Drop-Ship

Drop-Shipping is a form of retail in which the retailer has no physical contact with the sold goods. He transfers his customer’s orders to a wholesaler or manufacturer who then ships directly to the customer.

Advantages for the retailer include:

  • no need to manage stock
  • positive cash flow as the wholesaler is only being paid after the customer has paid

The model is often used in online marketplaces.
