Dropshipping: Do I pay products before selling online [Oberlo weekly Q&A] Hey everyone, my name’s David – and it’s
question time. Just like each week, we’re taking a closer
look at questions that the community dropped into the comments of videos on our YouTube
channel. If you have questions of your own, don’t
be shy! Alright, let’s get to it: So this question is from an anonymous viewer
who wants to know if they need to purchase products before they import them to their
online store. Great question! And the answer — is no, you do NOT need to
purchase any products before you import them to your online store. That’s part of the beauty of dropshipping. You never need to hold any inventory. Instead, when you receive an order, you’ll
purchase the products from a supplier, and that supplier will ship them directly to your
customer’s door. That means the startup costs are virtually
nothing. Of course, there’s still plenty of work for you to do: you need to come up with a pricing strategy you need to take care of marketing, make sure all your ads are running you want them to, but you don’t need to worry about paying for the products until your customers have paid for the products. We’ve included some resources to help you
choose products that you can sell online in the description. Good luck! Do you have a question you want answered? Let us know. We check through the comments section every
day and we’d love to use your question in our next video. And if you liked what we spoke about today,
