What is dropshipping and why it is valuable?
Dropshipping is a commercial model that allows you to sell products without shares. You will find suppliers and place photos and descriptions of their products on your Internet platform. When a customer requests something from your website, they send this order to a supplier that delivers the requested products directly to their customer's address. The difference between the price of the supplier and the price is your benefit.
Compared to the traditional retail model, the dropshipping scheme significantly reduces the risks. Your initial investment is very small, since you do not need to buy products and pay for your storage.
What other things make drop shipping an ideal choice for online business?
• You will not encounter excessive stock or shortage of goods.
• No need to deal with packaging and package delivery.
• If you want to expand your business, you can diversify the products offered at any time; There are no restrictions for you.
• Any business ideas and new products can be tested and evaluated quickly.
• If you are not ready to give up your main job, you can start your dropshipping site at your leisure.
• Since all you need is the Internet, you can work anywhere in the world.
• You can set the maximum benefit on your own.
And if we compare dropshipping with other forms of trade without inventory, for example, with affiliate marketing, it is clear that dropshipping is much more profitable. You do not receive only a small commission: you can set any price, everything depends on your will and common sense.
You can also include shipping costs in the final price and offer your customers free shipping. This will help you create a positive brand image and increase customer confidence.
Why is it better to launch an online store?

PVS-Studio is a static code analyzer detecting errors and potential vulnerabilities in the code of applications written in C, C++, and C#. We've been entertaining the readers of our blog for a long time by checking various open-source projects and commenting on the bugs found. Now our articles have every chance to become even more interesting because PVS-Studio can now check the code of embedded devices. We have added support for a few ARM compilers, which I talk about in detail below. Bugs in embedded devices and robots could be more of a spectacle than bugs in regular applications. When showing up in such devices, bugs don't simply cause a program to crash or hang, or display an image incorrectly; they make Wi-Fi kettles go mad and boil the water until it's all gone and the thermostat trips. That is, bugs tend to be more interesting and creepy in the world of embedded systems.
Many programmers know firsthand that C and C++ program builds very long. Someone solves this problem by sword-fighting at build time, someone is going to the kitchen to "grab some coffee". This article is for those who are tired of this, and who decided it is time to do something about it. In this article, various ways of speeding up compilation time of a project are regarded, as well as treatment of a disease "fixed one header - a half of a project was rebuilt."
Are the primes scattered over the numerical axis like wind-dispersed seeds? Of course not: simplicity is not a matter of chance, but the result of elementary arithmetic. A number is simple if and only if no smaller positive integer except one does not divide it whole.
Here on Habré there was a correspondence about uneducated youth and the student and teacher spoke. Well, obviously there is something missing - namely, the opinion of the extreme in this process - the employer. This post we wrote in just two hours, because it boiled over the previous years. And this will not be a sterilized and verified article, but a cry of the soul.
The road to good work is always difficult and requires effort
Due to the fact that a relatively large (and very loud) part of IT lives in the next bubble of dotcoms (now startups), some representatives of this tribe, and especially all Evangelists and even HR, have the illusion of the following property.
A pier, any device, a framework or a way of operation sharply raises success of the enterprise. For example, "we all use the MacBook, and we already have a third round of investment." Or "we decided to open a travel agency, and hire only those programmers who do not get out of travel; we want all employees to share our values, and we already have a turnover of $ 100 million. " Or "as soon as we implemented React + Vue + Angular, our business went uphill, and we bought Google." And so on.
At first glance it seems absurd? - Yes, but we admit: Hype and hubbub are indisputable accompanying elements of the modern IT-world. Any phenomenon that is on the edge of public attention, and IT, of course, from such, can not absorb the characteristic features of the society of its time. In particular, the tendency to prevalence of form over content.
According to our rough estimate, based on 20 years of practice, earthwork can "lose" up to 50-60% of the budget. On reinforced concrete and finishing is exactly 30%. On the errors of re-registration in collisions, the cost of engineering increases by approximately 10%. It is for this simple reason, when the "evil customer" implements the BIM-model of the building, wild cries and groans begin on all sides.
BIM-control will now be on all state orders on a new standard, so the cries and groans will be especially epic.
Here I see the trace of all systems, I can get an accurate estimate for each node: and when I move or add an object I will receive updates in all project and working documents at once.
What is a BIM model? This is a three-dimensional model of a building where all systems are docked and tied together in one single plan. We put an outlet in the room - in the general estimate there was a new outlet and the corresponding cable meter. The error of this model is 2%. On paper, usually take a stock of 15%, and the surplus of this stock is desperately "lost."
Let's show you better examples than I will tell.

In April 2017 published an article Will Gornalla from the University of British Columbia and Ilya Strebulaeva Stanford called "We bring venture business assessments to reality." In it, scientists analyzed the estimates of more than hundreds of world-famous companies (including technological ones) with an estimate of one billion dollars or more (the so-called "unicorns").
It turned out that these estimates do not always correspond to reality and can be repeatedly overstated. We publish the main findings of this study.
