Why Dropshipping is Better Than Wholesale in India?
Wholesale in India can cost businesses more money through the cost of goods, the cost of shipping and expensive employee costs. The cost of goods are high because large quantities need to be purchased to ensure good pricing without a guarantee that they’ll be sold. Shipping costs are high because individual entrepreneurs don’t have access to government deals such as ePacket. Employee costs are high because you need to hire a bigger team to package and ship products as your business grows. Dropshipping allows businesses to automate most of their business so that they focus on tasks that generate revenue like marketing or building strong relationships through customer service. By dropshipping via Oberlo, shipping goods usually only costs a couple of dollars and can sometimes even be free. It also allows Indian dropshippers to sell their products all over the world to grow their businesses quickly. Dropshipping is the budget-friendly option for Indian entrepreneurs allowing them to start businesses with minimal risk. Let’s move onto payment gateways in India – keep scrolling.
Supplier Considerations for India
India’s imports exceeded $7.25 Billion in 2017 making it a lucrative market to move into if you can find a reliable supplier to India. As a largely English speaking country it can be good to look for a supplier to India who can provide packaging in this language to make for a good customer experience.
Working closely with your supplier in India is important as payments might be troublesome at times. Wire transfer charges and added costs can be hard to identify until you enter the market so you will need to be open and transparent with your suppliers to India.
