Sell Products Online Without Inventory

July 13th, 2012

Starting a business online is easier than ever, but there are still aspects of running a business that can bog down a business … and even bring it down without proper management.

One in particular is shipping — it’s not uncommon for businesses to attract negative reviews due to their performance actually delivering goods their customers purchased online. In addition to poor reviews and overall customer experience, the cost is often what prevents people from really expanding because it’s so risk intensive.

This is where dropshipping comes in.  Dropshipping means not having any inventory and relying on your wholesale supplier to ship the products out for you. This helps your business because you:

1. do not have to buy in bulk and have room to hold your inventory
2. do not have to worry about packing and shipping the products
3. do not have to hire staff to help you out with your inventory

Having warehouse space means more money spent. Packing and shipping the products yourself means more money spent. Also, as your business grows and more customers are buying from you, you will not have to hire staff to pack and ship items which means more money spent.

Dropshipping saves time and saves money!

We here at WorldwideBrands.com maintain a list of over 8,000 wholesale suppliers that dropship and sell in bulk. We certify the legitimacy of all of the wholesale suppliers that we list and make sure that they are willing to work with new online businesses. We add new wholesale suppliers, manufacturers products and/or brands every business day for our members.

  3. Hi,

    There are many places to sell products online. eBay, Amazon or your own website. There are also physical ways to sell products, such as at flea markets, swap meets, classified ads and etc. So there is always an outlet for selling products. With our Directory, all of our suppliers are vetted for online sales, but since they are all also legitimate wholesalers, they will ship in bulk for retailers that sell in a brick and mortar locations or other physical locations or even if you just want to sell online and store the inventory yourself. We have a great free eBook that you can read to help you get started. It’s called Starting Your Internet Business Right and you can find it here; http://www.worldwidebrands.com/wwb/kh_freeebookHOME.asp

  4. Hi I’m thinking about launching an online pet store.Do these dropshippers require a percent of what you sell ? Also , are reviews necessary for a successful site, you know, like the rating system Amazon uses? Let me know your thoughts.Thank yoy.

  5. Hi Roland,

    It’s not an affiliate relationship with the suppliers, it’s a wholesale relationship. You have a set wholesale price that you pay to the wholesale suppliers after you collect the funds from the customer for your advertised retail price. The suppliers would not expect anything other than their wholesale cost for the product.

    People love reviews. It’s not completely necessary for a successful site, but it does help on several levels:
    1. Customers like to see what others experiences are with the product – the more favorable the reviews, the more likely they are to purchase
    2. Reviews keep fresh content coming into your site. The search engines love refreshed and new content, and it helps with SEO. Most people that review, will mention the product name or unknowingly put SEO keywords in their reviews which will help your site in the search engines. This is why most large companies allow reviews.
    3. The reviews can help you determine if you want to continue to try to sell that product. If a product gets nothing but negative reviews, then you immediately know it’s not a favorite and you can cease trying to sell it and replace it with another product that may be of more interest.

    I have been to A LOT of online store websites, wholesale websites and etc. I find some really great looking sites without reviews, and others with. I also see sites that have a review section, but no one has left reviews yet.

    You can always try with or without and see what happens.

    Another thing to try is to email your customer a few days after they received the product, email them and ask them to email you a review, or have the capability turned on, that will send them a link, but it doesn’t publish their review until you check it. This will keep the “review” section turned off on your site, but you can still gather reviews to see if you WANT to publish them.
