What is dropshipping?

Dropshipping is a business scheme in which the seller (dropshipper) creates a showcase for online trading and accepts orders from buyers. After payment of the order dropshipper buys the goods from the supplier or manufacturer at a price lower than stated for the buyer. The difference in value is the income of the dropshipper. Sending the goods to the customer in this case is made by the store.
