The 10 Best Dropshipping Suppliers for Your Business

Dropshipping is a business model where retailers use suppliers to ship products directly to the end customer rather than managing the stocking and shipping themselves. Unlike traditional retail, dropshipping retailers do not keep physical inventory and only pay for the product when a customer first places an order.

The primary benefit of dropshipping is it lets retailers sell products without committing the large amounts of working capital required to buy, stock, and ship wholesale products. This can be invaluable for new companies or those experimenting with a new product before they commit the resources to purchase large amounts of inventory.
