Another job possibility is known as drop shipping. This is where you work with a distributor of a certain product. It would be your responsibility to do the selling while the distributor gets that product to the customer. This is a great opportunity because you will make money from the products but you don’t have to handle, package or mail them yourself. However, before you can begin a drop shipping business you will need a product platform such as an e-store or a website so that the products can be displayed to customers all over the world. You have the opportunity to choose products, set the prices and advertise all from the comfort of your own home.
