If you like selling real products on marketplaces like Trade Me, but want to scale this into something more than just earning a few dollars a month then you probably need to consider using drop shipping.
What’s the advantage of dropshipping?
- You don’t need to invest a lot of money: Dropshipping makes it amazingly easy to get started selling products online. You don’t need to invest heavily in products / inventory to sell, yet you can still offer thousands of items to your customers.
- Lower risk: Many retailers including those that sell online need to buy in the products that they plan to sell, and even with the best research and planning you can get stuck with products that just don’t sell, or you get undercut on price by someone else selling the same or a similar product. Check our the wholesalers that people will often access product from and see what those products are selling for locally and sometimes it’s hard to see how you can make money unless you can buy in volume which most of us can’t.
- Convenience and efficiency: Successfully launching and growing an eCommerce business takes a lot of work, especially if you have limited resources. Not having to worry about fulfillment is incredibly convenient and frees up your time to concentrate on your marketing plan, customer service, and operations.
- Mobility: There are systems available that have automated the physical fulfillment / product delivery. The wholesaler will deliver directly to your customer so everything can be handled within the management system meaning you’re free to operate your business anywhere you can get an internet connection.
If you plan to just use Trade Me then you can rely on EasyWholesale as a source of products and you can make some money operating a New Zealand drop shipping business. This is a really good way to start as most Kiwis understand how Trade Me operates.
When you are ready to take things a bit more seriously you can start dropshipping within the larger global markets and this is where having access to a better and more comprehensive system really helps you scale the business. You can go from selling a few products a week to selling a few products a day and it’s easy to start making a real income from your time spent online.
