Drop servicing is the practice of selling a service to a customer for a certain price (say $100). Then hiring someone else to provide the service for the client at a lower price ($50), and pocketing the difference without the client knowing you outsourced the project. If you have, do share how?

Yes, I have done drop servicing before and it can be a great way to start an online business. Drop servicing is similar to drop shipping, but instead of selling physical products, you are selling services provided by another company or individual. What is Drop Servicing? Drop servicing is a business model that involves selling services online without actually providing them yourself. Essentially, you act as a middleman between the client and the service provider. You take orders from clients and then outsource the work to a third-party service provider who completes the job on your behalf. Once the work is done, you deliver it to the client and keep the difference in price as profit. How to Start Drop Servicing? Starting a drop servicing business is relatively easy. The first step is to find a reliable service provider who can deliver quality work at a reasonable price. You can find service providers on freelance marketplaces like Fiverr, Upwork, or Freelancer.com. Alternatively, you can use pre-made drop servicing stores sellers like Shopifico.com which provides a turnkey drop servicing solution. Once you have found a service provider, you can create a website or use an existing platform like Shopify to sell the services. Advantages of Drop Servicing There are several advantages of drop servicing, including: Low startup costs: Since you don't have to provide the services yourself, you don't need any specialized skills or equipment to start a drop servicing business. Wide range of services: With drop servicing, you can sell a wide range of services without having to specialize in any particular field. Scalability: Drop servicing businesses can easily be scaled up by outsourcing more work to multiple service providers.
