Very little expertise required. Would suit a complete beginner or experienced business owner.
The business makes money through the 'drop shipping' model selling products that are supplied by high quality manufacturers and suppliers who ship the products directly to customers who purchased from the website. No actual stock is held by the business. All that is required to manage and maintain this business is customer service and support. Ordering from the suppliers and having items sent directly to your customers takes about 5 – 10 minutes per order. It’s as simple as purchasing the item from the supplier, adding the delivery address of your customer and the supplier will do the rest.
You can manage this business from anywhere in the world, all you need is a laptop and access to the store back end, from which you can use apps to access the suppliers etc.
From small growth of the site, a potential owner could potentially see significant increases to their monthly income.
