Dropshipping: A Great Home Business for Retirees

 

Dropshipping is a great home business for retirees!

Many retired people are feeling the pinch of inflation and might find themselves needing to supplement their retirement income. Plus, a lot of retirees find that having so much time on their hands after a lifetime spent being productive is a little too much like stagnating to suit them.

dropshipping for retirees
If you are a retiree who is contemplating starting a home business, ecommerce is definitely the way to go and dropshipping takes ecommerce to a whole new level of easy start up and maintenance!

Whatever your reasons for thinking about getting started with a home business, be it boredom or financial necessity, you will find much to recommend a dropship business.

Let’s look at some of the things that make an ecommerce home dropshipping business so attractive to retirees:

  • Low start up cost---If you were starting a brick and mortar traditional business, you would need big bucks to get it off the ground. You would have to rent, buy or lease a suitable building, pay utilities and all sorts of insurance, hire a cleaning crew or do the cleaning yourself, etc. etc. It is a daunting prospect and especially in view of the fact that the retail economy---though slowly recovering---is far from booming. E-tail, on the other hand, or online sales, is healthy and getting bigger all the time.

  • No need to buy inventory up front---With a traditional commerce business, you would need to buy inventory in order to have something to sell. As you can imagine, this would not be cheap. But with a home dropshipping business, you don’t have to buy any inventory to get started. In fact, you only pay for each product as it is sold and your customer has paid you for it. In essence, you are selling products you don’t have in your possession. If this sounds confusing, read on and all will become clear.

  • No hassle or expense of packaging and shipping---Because you don’t have the products you sell in your physical possession, your wholesale dropship product source takes care of all the packing and shipping. Yes! All of it. This leaves you free to do the thing that will make you money---sell, sell, sell! You simply find a reputable wholesale product source, select the items you want to dropship, list them on your website or a venue like eBay or Amazon and you're in business!

  • Set your own hours---When you work from home as your own boss with a dropshipping business, you set your own schedule. Want to take off on a pretty afternoon and play a few holes of golf or go fishing or shopping or whatever strikes your fancy? Go! You can make up the time if you need to on a rainy day when you would just as soon stay home.

  • And speaking of staying home---When you work from home, you never have to worry about shoveling your car out of several feet of snow to drive to work, or get out in pouring down rain and storms, or fight the crowded commuter system, either. You get to earn the money you need right from the privacy, comfort and security of your own nest. How great is that?

There are many reasons why dropshipping is a great home business for retirees, so get started today---you’ll love it!
