Dropshipping is an order fulfillment method where a business doesn't keep the products it sells in stock. Instead, the seller purchases inventory as needed from a third party—usually a wholesaler or manufacturer—to fulfill orders.
Lower startup costs. Businesses that adopt a dropshipping strategy don't have to invest capital in acquiring inventory or establishing a location to store it.
Lower inventory management....

The biggest benefit of having a dropshipping ecommerce business is that you don’t have to store any products. This means you can sell books without the extra cost of inventory and shipping, which can be expensive given the size, weight, and delicateness of books.
Generating passive income through a dropshipping store comes with a ton of pros:
Growing market: despite the growth of online books, audiobooks, Kindles, and other digital formats, the physical book market is predicted to be worth $159.3 billion by 2028
Huge product selection: there are thought to be around 170 million unique books in the world, providing plenty of product choice for your dropshipping business
No storage costs: storing books can get costly quite quickly, but dropshipping them means you don’t have to store them yourself and therefore don’t have to pay warehouse fees
Passive income: once you’ve set up your online store and connected up a third-party book supplier, you can be very hands-off with operations
Multiple niches: the huge number of books means there are plenty of niches to dig into. This can help you carve out a lucrative corner of the internet
ChrisLands will make it easy and affrdoable to dropship books!
