Frequently asked questions
What is dropshipping?
Dropshipping is a business model where orders are fulfilled by the product manufacturer and sent directly to the customer. The store owner finds a product supplier, markets and sells the product, and then sends the order to the manufacturer. This model cuts down on retail costs and allows the merchant to sell products without having to purchase them in bulk upfront or handle inventory.
Who is this course for?
This course is best suited for ambitious entrepreneurs who don’t yet have a product to sell. You’ll learn where to find the top trending products and how to connect with reliable suppliers.
Dropshipping is a great option for starting a business with limited money. You’re able to test a product in a specific market to see if people want it. Unlike other business models where you need to pay up front for inventory, dropshipping allows for flexibility during those early days.
Is there homework?
Yes. You’re expected to follow along with your own Shopify account and use the worksheets and templates the instructors provide. These are all designed to ensure you’re maximizing your founder education.
