Dropshipping is an ecommerce business model in which e-retailers do not keep goods in stock. Instead, goods are produced and shipped directly to customers from the 3rd party supplier. Dropshippers typically use a website or online store that acts as a "storefront" for products. Dropshipping is a process of selling goods without having to store any inventory. The vendor receives and processes the order, then either they or their supplier ships it out to the customer.

Affiliate marketing is a form of internet marketing in which one website receives advertising revenue from another website for referring traffic or sales. Affiliate marketing has become the most popular way to earn money online. There are many different ways to promote affiliate products, such as banner ads, email campaigns, content creation, and social media marketing. The most important thing is to find a product that you are passionate about and believe in.

In affiliate marketing, business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts. The company that offers the product pays the affiliate marketer, who then pays the customer.

Dropshipping has the potential to be more profitable than affiliate marketing because dropshippers don't have any upfront costs for inventory, and they can also skip the middleman markup on goods. However, there are some drawbacks to dropshipping as well: it requires more time, as you'll need to find suppliers and manage your orders; there is no guarantee that you'll be able to produce enough sales volume; and it's difficult to grow your customer base without spending money on advertising.
