I have been seeing people asking which is a better online business dropshipping or affiliate marketing, how does drop shipping compare with affiliate marketing? So let’s take a look.
What is dropshipping. According to Wikipedia hthttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drop_shipping, Dropshipping is a supply chain management method in which the retailer does not keep goods in stock but instead transfers its customer’s orders and shipment details to either the manufacturer, another retailer, or a wholesaler, who then ships the goods directly to the customer. As in retail business, the majority of retailers make their profit on the difference between the wholesale and retail price, but some retailers earn an agreed percentage of the sales in commission, paid by the wholesaler to the retailer
