This week we learned the differences between affiliate and drop shipping and the pros and cons to both. Affiliate shipping is where you put an add on your website that when customers click on it they get redirected to a the publishers website where they can buy the product like Amazon for example. If the customer buys it through clicking on your link, then they get paid commission. The good thing about this is that you don’t really invest anything to get paid but it is harder to gain tons of followers.
Drop Shipping is awesome! You can set up your whole website with all of your products for sale, yet you don’t have to store any of it. You keep it all at the warehouse and send the customer orders straight to your manufacturers or distributors and they send the product right to the customer. However, it can be difficult finding a distributor and is very competitive.
