I am looking to start a dropshipping business, due to limited start up funds and because I have found my niche that I was going to do anyway.
My niche is home furniture, and I have been researching a lot of furniture businesses and nearly all of them have a real store to go to and look at the furniture. A lot of these businesses are drop shipper merchants. I know this because I researched to find a supplier, and then researched their products on the internet and the stores came up, with the suppliers products on them.
I was wondering whether I would have to have a real store with all the furniture in it (which wouldn't be possible at the moment, due to limited funds), or would I be able to sell directly from my online store. Although this would be great, will people be willing to buy a £200 - £1500 product just off the internet, without first seeing it in real life?
Hope this makes sense, and I would really appreciate answers from anyone who has experience in drop shipping...
