How dropshipping works

Find an online supplier who has the products you want to sell
Show the supplier’s products with marked up prices on your website and advertise them
Receive direct payment from the customers who buy from your website
Redirect the orders to your suppliers and pay them their original price. Keep the profits to yourself!
Do nothing: the supplier will ship the order directly to your clients
Repeat! Find more products and suppliers if you like, and enjoy greater earnings!
