Why Start a Dropshipping Business in Germany?
In the first quarter of 2019, Germany’s GDP reached $978,769 million. Ecommerce in Germany is expected to be worth an astounding $58.8 billion in 2019. If you are considering a business selling to Germany keep in mind that clothing, electronics, and media products had the largest market spend in 2018.
When planning how to dropship in Germany remember that, as a population, Germans prefer to pay via PayPal, electronic invoice, or credit card so offering these methods of payment are essential for your business. Whether you have chosen to dropship to Germany or internationally, Germany’s great economy and alignment with the English language means that the barriers for entry are quite low to start your dropshipping business today.
Dropshipping in Germany allows you to run a risk-free business without holding inventory and shipping products. This gives you more time to grow your business through marketing, relationship building, and customer service. With Oberlo most processes are automated so you don’t spend your time on things like order processing and product imports.
Why Dropshipping is Better Than Wholesale in Germany?
Dropshipping in Germany is a lot more cost-effective than wholesale. With wholesale, you need to order products in bulk without knowing if you can sell all the stock you have received. Dropshipping reduces this cost to zero as you don’t need to place an order with your supplier until a customer has placed an order with you. Shipping rates are more affordable and you can do the work yourself without needing to hire employees when starting out also.
Dropshipping can be better than wholesale in Germany because it keeps costs low, allows you to ship internationally, and gives you more freedom to grow your business. Dropshipping with Oberlo gives you access to hundreds of suppliers, with thousands of products, so you can keep risk low by adding or removing products from your website if something isn’t performing well without any financial costs. With many processes automated you can focus on tasks that generate revenue.
