Own A Business Without Buying Stock?

It is possible to own a business without buying stock or renting a retail outlet. Many people are operating their own businesses from home without having to buy stock in advance. They have been using a system called dropshipping.

This system of business is not an American invention and nor is it a new concept. The practice or dropshipping has been around for longer than most would expect. The ancient traders conducted business using a dropshipping system. They would travel long distances to sell the products of warehouses and manufacturers. They would take samples to the retailers and when they had an order they would send a runner back to the suppliers' warehouse and the supplier would deliver the order.

With the technology available today there is no longer a need for us to get a camel or a horse and travel long distances to sell the wares of others. We are able to use the Internet to operate an online business through your own website or auction and sales sites .
