Why Start a Dropshipping Business in the UK?

In 2016, the UK’s e-commerce industry was worth $153 billion making it a great country to start a dropshipping UK business. In fact, in 2016, e-commerce sales in the UK grew by 16% proving that now’s the time to start selling products online. When it comes to market share, individuals selling online only make up 18% of all online retailers in the UK which showcases room for new entrepreneurs to come in and increase their market share. Those with limited e-commerce or business background can ease into the industry through the low-cost dropshipping business model. The average e-commerce website in the UK converts at 3.6% on a desktop which is above average making it more likely for an entrepreneur to be able to sell to their audience. However, those in the UK dropshipping products aren’t limited to their country as they can sell goods internationally with minimal additional shipping costs.

Why Dropshipping is Better Than Wholesale in the UK?

Dropshipping allows online retailers to sell products that are manufactured and shipped by a manufacturer. Instead of investing your money buying bulk inventory, like you would if you were wholesaling UK goods, you only pay for goods sold. You also don’t need to hire additional staff to package and ship goods as your business grows as the manufacturer does it for you. When you dropship via Oberlo there are no minimum orders. This helps keep business costs low as you learn how to run an online business. Thus, making it a financially sound option for budget-conscious and new e-commerce entrepreneurs. You can also add as many products to your store as your heart desires to meet the needs of your customers. Dropshipping allows you to run an automated business so that you have time to work your full-time job, spend more time with family and friends or take a vacation. When it comes to processing payments, you can view the payment gateways in the UK below.
