Hi ya new girl, welcome to the forum
Drop shipping has been going on for a long time now and is popular amoungst the e-bayers of this world. With most drop shipping companies, you dont hold the stock, you sale a item of stock for the company ie on e-bay or via a web site, you then either place the sale with the drop shipping company for that oreder and they send it out and you get a certain amount of money for the sale, or if you are doing it through a web site that is a front page linking people to the drop shippers company web site, then the order will automatically go through to the drop shipping company and then you will get your money either way. A lot of drop shipping companies work from the respect when you have earnt a certain amount of money with them, they will post a cheque or pay via paypal to you.
One thing to bear in mind, its not easy to make money from selling on line, as so many people are trying to do it, there is huge competition. If you think about having your own web site built, make sure that the person who is building it really knows what they are doing, its one thing to have a web site made and its another thing to have a very productive web site made. So many people know how to build web sites, what they dont know how to do is to get them found with ease by the search engines, without having to pay anything or costing a fortune in advertising. I would always say that web site developers need to put their money where their mouth is, so to speak, they need to make sure that the web site works out in the big cyber world. You can have the best looking site and get no hits.
Some drop shippers will deliver stock to you as well, and then you sale it normally on line. Instead of the company sending it out to the buyer they send it to you and you forward it on.
I hope this has helped in some respects. Feel free to ask anymore questions
