Is there any one who doesn’t dream of working home based? Perhaps none. There is nothing as fulfilling as earning from a home based work. Luckily there is a great way to start earning online from a home based business. Called as Drop Shipping, it is a perfect online home business that won’t require you to invest on a large amount of money.
All you will need is a telephone and an Internet, particularly Broadband connection. A small room in your house can serve as your office area so there wouldn’t be no disruptions for you when you take calls for work. A room solely for the business is preferred since it wouldn’t give you and your business a good impression if there are background noises of children yelling and crying while you’re transacting business over the phone.
Aside from a telephone, room, and an Internet connection, the only thing you will need is a reliable drop shipper. The drop shipping company will be responsible for stocking and delivery of items ordered. Go online and you will see lists of wholesalers and drop shippers like SaleHoo who would be more than willing to help you start your business. But of course, because there are a number of them, you should be careful of whom you will transact with. Double check the credibility and reliability of your chosen wholesaler or drop shipper.
Once you have settled agreement with the wholesaler, they will provide you with a list of the items they have on stock and the equivalent prices and photos. Learn how to add profit margin to the wholesaler price. After that, you can now start posting them in Online Market sites such as eBay.
Drop shipping works when somebody places an order. Collect the order and payment of the customer and send it to the drop shipper so they can deliver the item. Here, you do not have to buy all of the drop shipper’s items and stock it in your place. Your responsibility is mainly to sell the product and collect payment. Give the order list and pay the wholesale price to the dropshipping company and they will be responsible for delivery.
This process may look that easy but this actually requires effort and attention too. In order for you to get a good feedback as a seller, you still need to ensure that the items purchased were delivered complete and in perfect condition. This means that you have to be in touch with your wholesaler. This is the most delicate part as the buyer only recognizes you and not your dropshipper. Keep in mind that your reputation as a seller is at risk so you have to be always online and able to communicate with your shipper.
