Selling stuff online

Selling things online can be done in two ways.

Direct selling

You must have something to sell on the internet. Here you have to make a website or use an existing platform to sell a product. Then you should add your products with images and fair prices. When the buyer found your website or profile, they will put an order. Obviously you will have to do marketing to bring your products to the buyers.

Here you have to bear all costs such as production cost/buying cost, packaging cost, shipping cost, document costs, and other costs. That case gets different when it comes to drop-shipping.


Here you don’t need to have products on your own. What you do is find a top seller and promote their products on your website or your profile. Once the customer sees your website or profile, he/she will buy the relevant products from you. But the real case is, the product is no yours. Even the customer buys from you, and the original seller has to sell the product to the customer by bearing all the costs I have mentioned above.

How to we get paid from drop-shipping.

When a customer purchased a product, we will receive a commission from the particular order.
