I've seen a lot of talk and research about Dropshipping lately. That's why I decided to write this kind of explanatory blog post for those who do not know and do research.
Dropshipping is a retail fulfillment method where a store doesn't keep the products it sells in stock. Instead, when a store sells a product, it purchases the item from a third party and has it shipped directly to the customer. As a result, the merchant never sees or handles the product.
