You are therefore a full-fledged salesperson or merchant, avoiding enormous constraints.

What is the difference between a "traditional" sale and a drop shipping?
Normally, a trader must buy products to have a stock and be able to sell it.
So you have to move cash to create your stock, take the risk that the product is never sold, outdated, broken, etc ... and you must have the space to store it.
The drop-shipping will therefore allow you to achieve sales without having to have advanced cash and therefore greatly limit your risks. So anyone can open an online store in dropshipping

Who does that between the supplier, the customer and me?
As a DropShipper, after selecting your or your provider in dropshipping, you are going to have to put up for sale products from your wholesaler. Once a customer has ordered from your online store, you will place your order with your supplier. So your supplier will deliver your customer directly.
