  1. you purchase stock in bulk from a supplier
  2. you receive the goods and store it
  3. you manually list the stock for sale on your website
  4. you advertise your website and the goods you have for sale
  5. customer views your website and orders an item
  6. you pick and pack the item and make it ready for shipping
  7. you ship the item directly to the customer

drop shipping e-commerce store:

  1. you find a supplier who will drop ship items directly to your customer
  2. you either manually or automatically list the items on your
  3. you advertise your website and the goods you have for sale
  4. customer views your website and orders an item
  5. once payment has been received you order the item directly from the supplier
  6. the supplier then processes the order and sends it to your customer

As you can see, a drop shipping store removes the need for you to prepurchase stock, physically handle the stock and make it ready for shipping. There is also the possibility of automatically listing the items for sale on your website. Overall a drop shipping store saves you a lot of time, a lot of money, and also removes the need for you to manage stock.
