Do you know? India has more than 400 million active online buyers, says Google.
Not just that - By 2034 the Indian eCommerce market is expected to outgrow the US market and become the second-largest eCommerce industry in the world.
So, it is quite evident that India is a potential hub for investments with its continued growing eCommerce industry /space making it a worthwhile market to dropship into.
Let me give you 5 reasons, why you should consider dropshipping in India?
1. No up-front Inventory hassle
One of the best parts about dropshipping in India is, that you don't have to take any unnecessary headaches on keeping the inventory. It offers you the solution to produce as much as you can sell.
It also eases the pressure of marketing aggressively to make sure all of it is sold as you are not directly responsible for the production of the goods.
2. Wider niche availability
The e-commerce industry is still booming in India due to which the market is still new to the dropshipping business.
Well, It gives you the opportunity to select from a wide range of niches to sell your products from in India.
3. Extremely Low CPA's
In India, Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) to acquire orders is hardly between $3-$7 in comparison to the developed markets like the US & UK where CPA goes from $14 to $18. Isn’t that amazing?
Which means that you can get more orders by spending less in a very low budget.
4. Extremely low competition
We all know markets in the US & other major countries have become a Red Ocean with so many players coming & selling the same things.
That is why, taking an edge over Indian market can get you real PROFITS as it is still a Blue Ocean.
5. Road ahead
Indian E-commerce industry has been on an upward growth trajectory and is expected to continue its strong growth - it registered a CAGR of over 35% to reach Rs. 1.8 trillion (US$ 25.75 billion) in FY20.
Over the next five years, the Indian e-retail industry is projected to propel the online Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) to US$ 100-120 billion by 2025.
However, you need to understand that every market has its own trends and ways. Even India has a very different style of working when it comes to dropshipping.
Let's understand now, how dropshipping is different in India?
In India, the trend of e-commerce is growing more than ever, however, dropshipping in India used to be done differently from how it happens around the world which in turn killed the very essence of dropshipping in India, however, with vFulfill you will have the leverage to dropship the same way as it happens around the world.
Dropshipping has several benefits, While it is one of the most cost-effective ways of starting a new business, it also minimizes the total shipping and management cost, which also reduces the price for the customer.
Dropshipping is a hit concept and a profitable one in India because there is so much scope of growth and experimentation in the market here.
Like every other business, dropshipping in India also comes along with its own share of risks along with the benefits.
95% of the orders in India work on a Cash-on-Delivery mode of payment which means that people in India prefer to make payment after collecting the order.
Back ordering is another big risk involved in the dropshipping business as it comes along with a long wait to deliver a product as wholesalers have to wait for the new product to get in-stock or manufactured leading a trail of unsatisfied customers.
At the same time, there are some customers who do not accept the order when it reaches their doorstep, for which the seller (you) might have to stock the products which you ship for delivery.
Not just that - there might be a lot of orders in place which would turn out to be the returned ones, however with vFulfill, you do not have to worry about the concerns related to dropshipping as when we become your partner where we take care of everything from sourcing to delivering the product to collecting the cash and to managing returns.
All you need to do is focus on “selling & scaling” any product you wish to sell.
