- Kamil Sattar started selling products online through a method called drop shipping in 2017.
- Drop shipping refers to a type of fulfillment method where the seller doesn’t hold any inventory and instead acts as an intermediary between the customer and the supplier.
- As online shopping has grown in popularity, the landscape of drop shipping has changed quickly. Sellers now have to operate stores at a higher standard of quality.
- Sattar has already made $1.7 million in sales on Shopify this year, according to documentation emailed to Business Insider. He outlined his four major tips for getting into drop shipping in 2020.
As a teenager, Kamil Sattar knew he wanted to work in business. But he dropped out of his college’s business program during his second year when he said he realized, “I wasn’t actually learning how to do business. I was learning how to work for someone else’s business and make them money.”
That wasn’t what Sattar had envisioned. He decided his best route was to quit, get a job to build up his cash flow, and use that money to fund what he really wanted to do: launch his own business. While working stints in retail and personal shopping, Sattar kept coming across a new e-commerce venture called drop shipping.
For the uninitiated, drop shipping describes a fulfillment method. It means the online seller doesn’t hold any inventory in a warehouse and essentially acts as a middleman between the customer and the product supplier.
