Why Dropship in the USA?
Each year the percentage of people who buy online grows larger in the US. With a population of 327.2 million people, 93 percent of those made an online purchase in 2018. In the USA, GDP is expected to reach $21.9 billion by the end of 2020. Within ecommerce, the country has been very quick to adapt to buying online, with retail sales projected to grow from $601 billion in 2019 to over $735 billion in 2023. This huge growth is a testament to the adaptive nature of the population, who increasingly use mobile devices to buy online nowadays.
More and more younger people are buying online as opposed to buying in store. This is because they have more disposable income and less time to shop in brick and mortar stores. Leveraging this trend is vital to any new ecommerce stores moving into the US market. The USA is also one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world making it the ideal place to start your online business. Overall this market is an excellent environment that a dropshipping store would need to thrive in the initial few months of setup.
Large online retailers in the USA include Macy’s, Lowe’s, Best Buy, and other large retailers that wholesale and sell a lot of goods everyday. You need to be sure before you invest all your efforts in marketing and selling your products that you are in the right market, with the right product. If not, these giants will take all your business. This is why dropshipping is a better option than wholesale in the USA.
With dropshipping you can test your products and your market many times until you find your perfect fit. Furthermore you will not be left with leftover products from tests that didn’t work out. This means that the barrier of entry is a lot lower than wholesale. Dropshipping also reduces the cost of warehousing, and shipping to zero as you don’t place an order with your supplier until a customer has bought from you. This can allow you to set up a successful ecommerce business without investing thousands initially that you might not get back.
