Dropshipping is not a new term, it has been around for quite some time. But there are also misconceptions on what dropshipping really is. We know dropshipping and we understand it.

Let’s start with terminology. We hear many people state they want to dropship and become a dropship business. This is wrong! They really mean that they want to be a retailer that uses a dropship supplier – like Empire Distribution. Dropshipping is also known by: drop-shipping, drop shipping, drop shipment, drop ship and so on…

A dropshipping account with Empire Distribution means you don’t have to worry about stocking or shipping products. Instead, when you get an order from a customer, you place the order with us and we ship it to your customer for you. This means you, as a retailer, can sell a variety of products without ever having to stock any inventory whatsoever. This makes dropshipping very appealing for new, small, home-based online businesses.

How Dropshipping Works:

No matter where you plan to sell products online (eBay, Amazon or even your own online store) if you are starting a business selling products from home then you probably don’t want to carry much, if any, inventory. Most people who are starting their first online business via auctions or online stores don’t have a lot of money to buy a bunch of products or the space to warehouse and store the products they want to sell online. This is where working with Empire Distribution will save you money and time.
