drop shipping

Drop shipping is a way for businesses to sell their goods without having to store them in a physical location like a warehouse. Instead, when a customer orders something, the business will order it from a different company and have it sent directly to the customer. This way, the business doesn't have to pay to store the goods. They also don't have to worry about packing and shipping the goods. It's a convenient way for businesses to sell goods without having to worry about the logistics.
