As I browsed on websites selling new technology products, I learned a new trend in online shopping. There is this thing they call Dropship which pertains to a retailing practice of sending items from a manufacturer directly to the customer or small time retailer.
Dropship getting very popular nowadays because it gives an edge to small time entrepreneurs. Although drop shipping a product may cost more, this is offset by the retailer not having to pay the cost of maintaining stocks. Usually maintaining a stock level means you have to rent a warehouse or building to protect your products from the environment. Then there is the supply for water, electricity, and cooling or whatever facility you need to maintain your products functioning until such time you can sell them.
Needless to say, I found a site to buy something very similar for almost half the price. I am glad that online shopping provides alternative experience and we customers get a better deal!
