1What is Drop Shipping?
Drop shipping is a retail fulfillment method in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock but instead directly transfers End Customer orders and shipment details to the Supplier, who then ships the goods directly to the End Customer. The Vendors make their profit on the difference between the Supplier and Sale price paid by the Supplier to the Vendor.
2How to start drop shipping business?
Drop shipping is an extremely popular business model for new entrepreneurs, especially Gen Xers and Millennials, due to internet marketing skills far outweighing financial capacity. Since you don’t need to stock or handle the items you are selling, it’s possible to start a drop shipping business with limited funds. An e-commerce website that operates a drop shipping model purchases the items it sells from a third-party supplier or manufacturer, who then fulfills the order. This not only cuts operational costs, but it also frees up your time to focus all of your efforts on customer acquisition. If you are ready to start a business that can compete with retail giants, and do so on a limited budget, then follow the six steps below.

Next step, they will put them a more advanced inspection, they will open the carton and inspect them one by one.

    22Why Do You Put a Lower Value on a Package?
    Some customers are complaining about the price we wrote on the ePacket package lately, so we clarify this behavior right here to eliminate the misunderstanding. First of all, everything ships from one country to another country have to declare the value. That is the government policy. Frankly speaking, it is custom policy. And every country has different taxing standard, for instance, Secondly, every country has a different taxing standard, and the price we usually write on the package is lower than the real price. For example, the price on the Customs Declaration showed above is $2.10, but it is far lower than the actual price. That is because if we write it in a lower price, the customers will not pay the Tax. And this is very important, each parcel and each vendor have to do this. So, to declare the lower value can avoid the tax effectively.
