There are many people who dream of setting up a business in Dubai, but they don’t have enough resources to start one. Even small businesses that items online would often require a vehicle and storage space where all the goods are sorted and prepared before delivery.

Dropshipping is a type of business where you accept orders from customers online, via a website or social media. But unlike the usual online store, you don’t stock or ship products yourself. Instead, dropshipping businesses simply source the products from 3rd parties and get them shipped to the buyer.
