Drop-shipping

Drop-shipping is a type of retail business where a merchant orders and sells products to consumers without physically owning or stocking them in their stores. What happens is that the merchant purchases inventory from a wholesaler or manufacturer and have them shipped straight to the consumer.

This means that the merchant does not physically come into contact with the products they sell. All they have to do is make arrangements with the manufacturer to ship the products to the consumer without the merchant’s involvement.
