I've always associated dropshipping with scams and get rich quick schemes but these days most of the top retailers do it. For example, I recently bought a 32GB card for my camera from Argos along with several other items. The other items were delivered the same day but the memory card took four days to be delivered. This is because Argos don't stock that particular card, they dropship it. The same thing happened when I bought a bed from Tesco last year.
I was checking out the company where my card was coming from and found a link to an interesting article about dropshipping. The article is at https://www.shopify.com/guides/dropshipping
if anyone is interested in reading it.
Has anyone here ever dropshipped before? Did it work for you?
