Drop Shipping is when a website displays your product for sale, but does not buy and stock it in advance. They sell it “like” they have it in stock, but in reality, they send you the order and have you ship it.
Win Win for sure!
It’s awesome that other people are marketing and promoting your brand while you are doing other things that require your attention.
And you get the exposure to their mailing list!
Be sure you have done your due diligence in reference to the merchant – be sure you like their website, feel it is the right place for your product line to be sold, and I’d be sure to check out their marketing techniques and be sure you are satisfied with their business practices before you sign on the dotted line.
This relationship can work out nicely if you just offer to split the retail price 50/50 plus shipping costs.
The website retailer will usually email you an invoice to put in the box and then can Venmo or Paypal you the 50% plus the freight charges before you ship each day. If you prefer to keep their credit card on file, you can download the sample authorization form below.
If you use a fulfillment house you might want to charge the extra fees to the store to cover the pick and pack fees involved so it doesn’t eat into your margins.

Do you know how to set the right price for your product line? Lordy knows I sure didn’t when I first started my handbag line. But once I learned the correct way to do it, I never mispriced anything again! Now I want to share this method with you so you can be profitable and not wonder why you can’t pay yourself.
It took me years to figure out how to set the right price for my product line when I first started out, so I can imagine you might be in the same situation. If you are not sure if you are making any money, then there is a good chance you’re not pricing your products correctly.
Proper costing is the lifeline to your business and profitability. Taking into consideration and finding all the hidden costs, is the key. So many people forget little things that they add up and then BOOM, you are not making any money. Once you have the actual cost (cost of goods sold) then it is easy to figure out the wholesale and retail prices so you are always making money.
I’d love to share this formula with you. It totally saved my rear when I was in year 3….. Just thinking of all that lost money in the first 2 years…. I want to cry!
