Dropshipping – A Quick Background

Dropshipping is a fulfillment business model where the retailer (that’s you) doesn’t actually own the inventory you are selling. Instead, you are acting as an intermediary that is selling the products on Amazon, eBay, Shopify, or your own website. When you receive an order (usually automatically), you pass that order to the dropshipping company for them to take, pack and fulfill (ship) the order. Your profit is the difference between what you charge your customers on your website and what the drop shipping company charges you.

eBay financial release

Gross Merchandise Volume of $20.5 billion – Twenty billion US dollars of transactions passed through eBay in just three months. This is an amazing amount of online sales from people of all walks of life, and a large number of sellers take smart advantage of dropshipping.

eBay sample seller

4865+ sold – Professional eBay sellers don’t carry inventory. They have someone else package and ship the products to the buyers. These online entrepreneurs just manage the listings. This is the same with online stores (e.g. Shopify), or selling in local magazine ads.

The first place we started looking was locally. By simply doing a Google search for various terms like “dropshipping tea toronto”, “wholesale tea supplier toronto” and “wholesale tea toronto” – we came across a few results:

Poor Results – Searching for a Dropshipper Using Just Google

We emailed some of the first results to see if they’d be interested in working with us — unfortunately, we hit a bit of a roadblock.

The local suppliers were aiming more towards working with a reseller who’d stock their teas at a tea shop, or cafe. That’s not what we wanted.
