3 online businesses in Nigeria to make lots of money
1. Drop shipping
In Nigeria, drop shipping is inarguably, the best type of online retail sales. Now, the question is, ‘how does drop shipping work’?
Most people you must have seen advertising products on social media and other places are never the producers neither do they have stocks for the products. These folks are simply into drop shipping business and most of them are millionaires.
They can post adverts of items they sell, but they don’t have stock for those items, neither are they the producers nor wholesalers.
When a buyer orders for the goods they claimed to be selling and pay them, they will secretly contact the real producer and order thesame product for the customer at cheap rate. Then the producer will ship the products to the buyer.
They collect money and also the buyer’s contact details, and use it to make order for the buyer. The producer will make shipping arrangements and deliver the ordered goods to the customer.
They don’t even see the product nor stress themselves for delivery. Producers do most of the work, where their own is just to find a customer.
The main difference between drop shipping and ordinary retail sales is that in drop shipping, you don’t have to stock goods. Rather, you buy from the producers or wholesalers on behalf of your clients.
