      Sure it’s a good idea, but if I were you I would also offer the option of buying and downloading the movie directly from your website, as that’s an already popular option for many people. You can also offer Blu-Ray as a DVD alternative, but that’s a conversation for a different time.

      There are a couple of ways to go about selling DVDs online. You can get the stock yourself or work with a dropshipper/wholesaler (although I recommend a dropshipper in order to reduce costs by a bit). For setting up an online business in general, here are some important notes:

      - Have a business plan that includes how much money you plan to invest, what the money will be used for, what customers you will market, what types of competitors you have, and which suppliers you plan to work with.
      - Get a domain name from a legitimate registrar.
      - Partner with a reputable web hosting company.
      - Design your website. You can do this yourself or work with a website design company.
      - Create a merchant account so you can accept a variety of forms of payment.
      - Set up a shopping cart on your website.
      - Add other features to your site, like a forum or email newsletter registration.
      - Begin marketing your website – possibly utilize some SEO techniques to increase web traffic.

      Why is it better to work with a dropshipper? In what way do they reduce costs?

      Once you find a legitimate, trustworthy dropshipper, you can look forward to a few things in the way of saving:

      1. Dropshippers save you lots of space. Stocking the product yourself means you will have to do all of the packing and shipping. You should make sure you have adequate storage space as well as work space. Also you will need to set up accounts with carriers like UPS, FedEx, DHL, and common post.

      2. Good dropshippers save you time and paperwork. The drop shipper you choose should have stock of the titles you are selling. A good dropshipper will provide you with an automatically updated XML sheet that lets buyers know what they have in stock and what they don’t.

      3. Dropshippers also save you money because you don’t have to provide and maintain your own storage space.

      I hope this information will help you get off to a good start.
