Are there any pros and cons to dropshipping on shopify? If so,then is there any way for me to make a business on Shopify where customers can send me recipes and pay me based on how the dish looks and tastes while using the dropshipping method?

If you're cooking the food and sending it to your customers, then you wouldn't be "dropshipping". 

 

Dropshipping is when you have another company creating & shipping the products for you, when orders are placed on your store. 

 

If you're wondering if there's an app for dropshipping food (especially custom recipes), then the answer is no, there is not.

Hi, @cbrown218 

 

Thanks for posting to the Community!

 

Dropshipping is the business strategy of selling products without hosting your own inventory. In these situations when a buyer purchases from you, you then purchase the purchased item from your supplier, who ships the order directly to your customer. This means you never have to handle any goods. 

 

As such, I am not sure I understand the correlation between dropshipping and your cooking venture. Can you please elaborate?

Dropshipping is like having an online store, but you don't need to store or send out products. Instead, when someone buys from your store, the supplier ships the product directly to them. You make money by charging a bit more than what you pay the supplier. It's an easy way to start selling online without spending a lot of money upfront on buying things to keep in stock. You focus on selling, and the supplier takes care of the shipping and storing part.
