What is Drop Shipping?
Drop shipping is a business model that allows retailers to sell hair products without keeping inventory of virgin hair extensions. And it’s something we offer with our *Hair Biz in a Box* program. With drop shipping, instead of having goods in stock, the retailer forwards the order to us, we then ship the merchandise to the customer on your behalf. In drop shipping, the retailer never sees the actual product.
How Does Drop Shipping Work?
- The customer places an order for a product on your online store.
- You, the retailer/owner of the site that received the order, automatically or manually forward the order and shipping details to White Label Extensions – your drop ship partner.
- White Label Extensions then packs the products and ships the order directly to the customer on your behalf.
Drop shipping is extremely attractive to online retailers as it eliminates the need for a brick and mortar store. All you need is a computer connected to the Internet and you’re good to go. Even businesses that own physical stores drop ship some of their goods to free up valuable space.
Benefits of Drop Shipping
Minimal capital required
With drop shipping, you can launch your own private label without having to invest thousands of dollars in inventory. You don’t even have to pay for a product until after the sale is completed.
Easy set up
Starting an online store has never been this easy. With drop shipping, you only need three steps – set up your website, find a drop ship supplier (US!), and start selling virgin hair extensions!
You can run your business from a café, the beach, or anywhere in the world! As long as you can communicate with suppliers and customers via the Internet, you can manage your business with no office or employees.
With drop shipping you don’t have to worry about:
- Managing a warehouse
- Tracking inventory
- Packing and shipping orders
- Handling product returns
Drop shipping eliminates the need to purchase inventory, rent a warehouse, and pay for overhead expenses such as electricity and phone bills. All you have to pay for is the cost of running an online store such as apps, website hosting, etc.
Extensive range of styles and colors
Because you don’t have to pre-purchase the items you sell, there is no limit to the product choices you can offer. As soon as a supplier stocks an item, you can add that to your website at no additional cost.
Easy to scale
Peak season means more work for traditional businesses. With drop shipping, most of the work to process additional orders is handled by the drop ship supplier. Just send them more orders and they will do everything else while you earn.
The risk is significantly lower in a drop shipping business model. There is no pressure to sell your inventory so even if your business does not receive orders you do not lose anything.
Drop shipping is a stress-free way to start your hair extensions business.
