Dropshipping (or drop-shipping – direct selling) is an activity specialised in the sale of products online (distance selling and ecommerce).
Dropshipping links three stakeholders:
The commercial website owner, online trader or dropshipper does not hold any stock.
They essentially deal with putting products online in their online shop and they coordinate the marketing via campaigns on social media (Snapchat, Tik Tok, Facebook), search engines via SEO and paid search (Google Ads for example) and influencers.
Dropshippers also manage operational tasks, including, in particular, sourcing, billing, as well as customer service.
The logistical part (stock acquisition, packaging, shipping etc…) on the other hand, is carried out by the supplier or online trader.
The buyer places an online order with the seller.
The dropshipper places the order with the supplier.
The supplier processes the order and ships it directly to the buyer.

ASD Group is a company which specialises in international taxation.
With the entry into force of the VAT reform for ecommerce and distance selling, dropshippers are faced with new standards and obligations within the European Union.
In effect, from the 1st July 2021, their activity will be subject to Valued Added Tax, under a specific scheme called the ecommerce VAT package.
All imports to the European Union, of any sort, must be subject to a customs declaration. This particularly impacts online traders.
ASD Group, based on its experience, can support you in analysing your business activities and can suggest solutions to put in place in order to ensure your workflows are compliant with the new VAT reform.
