Drop-Shipping is business model that allows retailers to sell products ordered from the providers to their own customers. Orders are placed to the customers by retailers; the retailer then passes on the order to the Drop Shipper. i.e. Austars-Model, and we will send products directly to the customer. This process results in great savings for the retailer in both time and money, Austars Model handles the storage, packaging and shipping of the products, relieving the retailer of these responsibilities.
