Is dropshipping a solution for small business?

Dropshipping is an order fulfillment method or an ecommerce business model that does not require a business to keep products in stock. Instead, the store sells the product, and passes on the sales order to a third-party supplier, who then ships the order to the customer.

it seems like easy money — you sell other people’s goods and take a cut for yourself — but when you factor in all the drawbacks, obstacles, and day-to-day management, it’s far from easy.

In addition, there is practically zero upfront cost to start a dropshipped online store because you don’t have to invest any money on inventory.

Theory of Change

The Paradoxical Theory of Change Arnold Beisser, M.D.

For nearly a half century, the major part of his professional life, Frederick Perls was in conflict with the psychiatric and psychological establishments.
