Now what is Dropshipping?
In simple term, dropshipping is when you list products from a bigger online store like Aliexpress on to a smaller online store like yours, add price for profit and make sales, when you sell, you accept the money and pay for the product on Aliexpress, then Aliexpress ships to the buyer.
You don’t need to pay for any product before hand, you accept the money, and then make the payment, the shipping address will be the address your customer entered, the product will be shipped to them from Aliexpress.
You will be able to add any amount to the original price for profit.
This is how it works, say you list a shoe that sells for $17 on Alipress for $27 on your website, and you sell 100 shoes a month.
That will be 100 x $10 = $1000 which will be ₦365000 as profit for that month, that’s good profit. And remember you will sell other products too.
