Dropshipping is an order fulfillment method that enables you to sell products without holding inventory or purchasing products up-front. Instead, when a product sells, you buy it from a third party that will ship the item directly to the customer. The third-party can be a manufacturer, wholesaler, or another retailer. Dropshipping removes the fears and costs associated with buying and carrying inventory that may not sell.

Success in affiliate marketing partly depends on how much a program pays. Therefore, you should consider the commission rate of each affiliate program. I tend to promote high-paying merchants that pay at least 30 percent or $50 per sale. If I sell $100,000 worth of goods, I’ll earn $30,000, for example.

For instance, at a 5 percent commission rate, I would make $5,000 per $100,000 sold.
