“Dropshipping” is a business model where the retailer doesn’t actually keep the inventory in his or her possession nor process the orders. All orders are fulfilled and shipped directly from a wholesaler. This allows the retailer to focus on the marketing side of the business. From our years of experience, an online retailer that adopts this model looks identical to its conventional e-commerce competitors. Since customers only care about the product, the price and the reputation of the store, rather than how the products are sourced and who fulfill the shipments, dropshipping can be a well-kept secret in the e-commerce world. （order fulfillment）
If you have a dropshipping fulfillment partner, you don’t have to worry about sourcing for large quantities of each item. With a turn-key e-commerce storefront like Shopify and a dropshipping app like Oberlo, the whole process is streamlined considerably. The retailer can choose to contact the wholesalers by e-mail to notify them that their products are now being carried at the store. The rest of the process, such as importing product photos, changing prices and order tracking, can be easily done from the User Center dashboard. ChinaDivision has a well-developed User Center where you can handle your orders, sourcing, shipping information etc.
While the dropshipping model provides small startups with limited resources the opportunity to confidently compete with medium and large-sized online retailers, thus making the e-commerce world an equal playground for all. This being said, expect to see more e-commerce stores adopting this model in the future.
