Definition of Dropshipping Policy

Dropshipping is a business model whereby an online retailer sells products they do not physically own or keep in-stock.

Instead, the retailer purchases the items from a third party supplier and has the supplier ship them directly to the customer, thus eliminating the need for the retailer to handle any of the product themselves.

Dropshipping policies are important for retailers to be familiar with as they will provide details about the ordering process, shipping fees, tax implications, and more.

It is important for retailers to ensure that their dropshipping policy is up to date and compliant with all applicable laws and regulations.

Doing so will help ensure their customers have the best shopping experience possible.
