Drop ship retailers don't actually stock any product. When you place an order, it is forwarded to a wholesaler who ships your order to you with the retailer's packing slip and return address on the package.

There's nothing wrong with it, but you usually won't get the best price through a drop shipper because they're buying items one at a time when you order them. Also, anybody can set up a web store as a drop shipper so they don't have to know anything about the auto parts they sell. It's a great way to do business, though, if you don't have a place to store product and the manpower to ship it all out.
