DropShipping is the name given to a form of online retail where the retailer sells products which are shipped direct from the distributor upon receipt of order.
AKA Distributor Shipped
This is also sometimes known as “distributor shipped”.
Paid after sale
Dropshippers often do not need to pay for the goods until they have already been purchased by their customer, making this an effective mechanism to grow an online store.
Fully branded dropshipping
A lot of major companies dropship some or all of their online products, in many cases silently, with the distributor using their packaging and inserts to maintain a “fully branded” experience.
