Start Your Hair Business With Dropshipping

Dropshipping hair extensions is a technique of business where the product is shipped to the consumer directly from a wholesale warehouse, thus eliminating the need for a company to hold a large amount of stock. Orders are placed with the retailer, who then, in turn, sends the customer’s shipping information to the wholesaler for shipment. From here the wholesaler ships the item to the customer, often using custom packaging, such as return labels and packing slips with the retailer’s logo. The process helps to cut out the middleman while saving space for the retailer.

How to Dropship Hair

There are several benefits to dropshipping and it is certainly a great way for an emerging business to get their start. It gives business owners the ability to start a company with very little initial investment or space needed. Dropshipping allows them to explore products. It also allows them to offer a wider variety of products because they don’t need to keep them in stock. The amount they will save in costs is very beneficial. Companies will have the ability to start and run a business from anywhere. Companies can even run from remote locations. All of this and more is possible for an online retailer that utilizes drop shipping. Read on to discover the benefits of dropshipping in detail.

Eliminates Need for Storefront

One popular reason retailers choose dropshipping is that it has the capability to entirely eliminate the costs of a storefront. E-commerce is considered to be the future of retail for many industries because of it’s benefits. Dropshipping is a huge contributor to the success of many online retailers. Because the retailer doesn’t hold any product in stock, they, therefore, don’t need the space to store the product. Without needing to maintain a storefront, they are able to dedicate more time to selling the product and promoting their hair extension website or business.

Hair Salon Storefront

A digital storefront allows you to start a business whether or not you have a physical location. Dropshipping helps to accommodate those who don’t have much space or who want to run a business from home. It also means the retailer is able to move the business without disrupting their service to customers. They are able to travel or move to a new location while maintaining their business.

Only Requires Small Space

For those businesses who prefer to also have a physical store, they can do it in a much smaller space. They are able to offer a wide variety of items without needing the warehouse or storage space. For those with a storefront, you can display the product you sell to show consumers what they are purchasing. Afterwards you can ship the product directly to the consumer after they purchase it via dropshipping.

Having a small space means they can have multiple storefronts if they choose. Businesses won’t need to put all of their funding into a large storage place. It also opens up options as to the location they are able to offer their services. This is an exceptionally good way to sell large products that require delivery. Regardless of whether these products are held in stock or at a wholesale warehouse this will work. It also means for those doing E-commerce, that they’ll only need a space to run their website and take customer calls.

Cost Saving

Having a small storefront or no storefront at all result in huge savings for the retailer. For online retailers, no physical storefront means they don’t have to rent or purchase a store, plus all the maintenance related fees, insurance, electricity, water and other utilities. This is an incredible amount of money savings. With these savings, they are able to hold a hire profit for what they do sell utilizing dropshipping, and potentially pass these savings on to the consumer.

Cost Savings with Dropshipping

For retailers who do maintain a storefront in addition to their online presence, much less space is required because they don’t need room for the product. This also eliminates the payroll needs of employees to unpack, stock and in some cases, repack and ship the product. Additionally, because the product comes directly from the warehouse, the profit margin is the amount they choose to charge for the item over wholesale costs, with a shipping fee taken out.

Easy to Start a New Business

A huge benefit of dropshipping, as a result of the cost savings and need for little space, is the ease of business entry. The initial investment is reduced greatly by utilizing dropshipping when starting a new company. Those who are just starting out need very little startup funds because they don’t need the upfront costs of stocking products before they can be purchased, or for renting a large space in which the business can be run. These upfront savings allow for a business to get a better foundation in place as they start their company.

There is also the added benefit of having the money in hand as soon as an order goes through, covering the cost of buying it from the wholesaler with the profit on top. There is no need to pay for the product in advance because it is paid as the demand is met. This ensures the retailer never has overstock or has to carry products from a previous season. It also means they can sample the products to sell without committing to always having them in stock.

Time Saving

Particularly for retailers with a small staff, the time-saving benefits of dropshipping are a game changer. Because there is no need to run a huge store, and stock, pack, and ship products, there is much less of a time commitment or need for employees. With the time benefits, the retailer can then work on ensuring their company thrives rather than making sure the shelves are properly stocked.

Dropshipping Saves Time

An additional benefit from saving time is that the retailer is able to improve the customer experience. They are able to dedicate their time to providing excellent customer service. The retailer can also better understand the products they are selling so they can provide informed advice to their consumers. They can also focus on marketing their business because they are able to save on upfront costs. They can invest in marketing to ensure the success of their endeavor.

New Products Faster

When a new hair extension product is available through a wholesaler, there can often be a several-week-long delay before retailers receive the product. This is because the retailer has to dedicate time to packaging and shipping it to the retailers. A benefit of dropshipping is that as soon as it becomes available in the wholesaler’s inventory, the retailer is able to immediately market and sell the product.

With such a fast introduction of new products to the market, those retailers who utilize drop shipping are a step ahead of other companies. Their reputation will benefit from the fast turnaround of receiving new products. It also means consumers may browse the website more often in search of new products which can lead to increased business from impulse buys. Higher web traffic is beneficial to a new company.

Company Can Grow

There are no constraints on how large an E-commerce company can grow when it relies on dropshipping for order fulfillment. As the business grows, the workload doesn’t increase. There is no additional need for hiring more workers to package and ship the product because this portion of the process is handled by the wholesaler. There also is little need for a larger space if the company increases its product volume because the product is not on site.

Growing your Dropship Business

As the demand increases, there may be the need for additional customer service, but this ensures the company maintains the level of quality that it grew its business on. Time can be spent training new employees on their customer service skills rather than training them on packing and shipping. Dropshipping allows for all the employees for the retailer being well versed and trained in the hair extension industry.

No Shipping Experience Necessary

When a business utilizes dropshipping, they can leave packing to the professionals. It isn’t necessary to stock shipping supplies, pay for shipping or even have any experience in packing and shipping. The shipping and handling are left to the wholesalers. The wholesalers have all the necessary knowledge and supplies to ship the product. This ensures the product arrives at the customer in the same condition in which it left the warehouse. It can also help the product arrive tothe customer faster when there is a dedicated team of packers at the warehouse.

Dropshipping is especially beneficial for companies selling high value products such as hair extensions. It isn’t necessary to invest in security systems and private storage that are made to secure expensive inventory as this responsibility is left to the wholesaler. This is hugely beneficial to retailers as they can specialize in marketing the product, without having to worry about the stress of shipping and inventory.

Offer a Diverse Stock

As a result of not needing storage space, online retailers who dropship, are able to offer a wider variety of lengths and styles. Carrying a diverse stock of hair extensions will help to attract a larger audience of customers. When a retailer has to provide storage for the multiple variations of each item, they may have to narrow their stock down to two or three different versions. If they utilize the dropshipping, they are able to sell many different items and many different models or versions of said item without having to maintain a storage facility or warehouse.

Hair Extension Types

The same can be said in a storefront, they can display more options without having to stock them all. This gives companies that operate using the dropship method of order fulfillment a benefit over competitors. When a company offers a wide selection, they are likely to offer consumers the exact product they want. In doing so, they are able to provide a better level of satisfaction to their customers.

Larger Audience of Consumers

When a retailer offers a wide variety of stock, they are able to attract a wider demographic of consumers. For retailers who offer a very specific item, dropshipping allows you to ship the item anywhere. This helps specialized businesses to thrive when they may not otherwise due to a lack of customers.

Companies who don’t have a specialized stock can reach a wider network of consumers because they can dropship anywhere. This is beneficial to both the consumer and the retailer, as they can get consumers outside of their typical area. Engaging in E-commerce is great for getting a large customer base. E-commerce gives people who may not have known about the company access to it through the internet.

Dropshipping extensions offers those in the hair industry opportunities they may not have been able to attain through regular shipping. It opens doors for niche market companies. Dropshipping also allows retailers to offer a wide array of products without the need to house them all. It also offers them flexibility in the location to run the business. It can move as needed and as the market changes. Companies just getting their start are able to save money and focus on their marketing. They are able to gain a large customer base while maintaining a limited inventory and low investment. Companies just starting out, or those looking to reduce inventory while maintaining their business can benefit from utilizing drop shipping.

    I recently made up my mind to start my own hair extensions business. After making my decision, I started researching. I didn’t know where to start, but the part that I was worried about the most was the inventory. How am I going to obtain an inventory with no money? I didn’t want to wait 6 months, a year to start my business. I wanted to get started now and launch within a few weeks. When doing my research, I initially came across Dropship Bundles. I had never heard of drop shipping before so of course, this caused more research.

    I then found out about Private Label extensions and found their group on facebook. After joining the group, it was then that I found out that Private Label and Dropship Bundles were sister companies. After binge lurking in the group, reading past posts and discussions, I decided I wanted to sign up for Dropship. I am not awaiting my hair in the mail that I purchased to wear and try out for myself before I commit. I never knew starting a hair extensions business could be so easy. I wish I would have started sooner but am glad to be here now.

    Private Label has made running a hair extensions business so easy. They do all the hard for you! Packaging and shipping? Done. Branding? Done. Website? Logo? Labels? Done. There are so many benefits to dropshipping. I can’t wait to start!!

    I have 3 questions:

    1 – If I opt for the $499 dropshiping which is for a lifetime, I still need to pay additional for hosting my site on a monthly basis?
    2 – Can I use my own silk packaging instead of yours if I get them cheaper elsewhere?
    3 – Are you able to give me an approximate Starting investment amount if I let you do the whole dropshipping, website and hosting, logo and branding as well as packaging? What I mean is you do All the initial legwork for me and have my brand set up and all I have to do is run my business from my end.
