Let’s talk about drop-shipping pros and cons, and then we can discuss the company SaleHoo.
Pros of Drop Shipping
When it comes to managing and handling stock, all responsibility is usually assumed by the drop ship suppliers. Also, postage and packaging is handled for you, and you do not have to store any stock on site.
You don’t maintain any stock, because it is only what you sell that you will pay for. This means you can never be stuck holding any items that don’t sell. Another plus is that there are no minimum orders to be met.
Sellers have the chance to earn money on items that are essentially in low demand.
One disadvantage occurs when a drop shipper sells out of products, and you still have orders to fill.
Still another con can be paying more money per item. And lack of inventory control means you are not able to offer customers unique photos of those things you are offering for sale.
Should drop shippers make any errors, you will be who is blamed for any mistakes. Keep in mind that drop-shippers are not perfect, and it is possible your customer’s orders might be mishandled.
All in all, drop shipping is truly a great idea.
