If you're a retailer who is selling products on the internet, you can either choose to pack and ship your goods directly to your customers or hand this part of the process over to a drop-shipping company that ships the products for you. The benefits of using a drop-ship supplier make this method of shipment quite attractive. It requires less capital, allows you to get established and start your business quicker, provides a low overhead cost and gives you the flexibility to operate your company from just about anywhere.
However, if you do decide to drop-ship your goods, there are accounting and tax details you should be aware of. Our team of e-commerce accountants is able to assist with drop-ship accounting and understand the complexities associated with this method of shipping.
