What is dropshipping?

Dropshipping is a way for you to sell products without storing the inventory or shipping the products yourself. Dropshipping is easy to set up and start your first online business.

If you run a dropshipping business, then your products come from suppliers who ship products to your customers on your behalf. Theses suppliers could be manufacturers, warehouses, or even family members who make products from their home. With Shopify, it's easy to find suppliers through print-on-demand apps and dropshipping apps.

Before you try dropshipping, make sure you understand how it works, its features and drawbacks, and the process that orders and products go through.
